Ask Baba Ali - "Little BackBiter!"

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

Please RATE and COMMENT....so I know you're watching :)

Allah says in the Qur’an Chapter 49 Al Hujarat verse 12 “O who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: And spy not on each other nor speak ill behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? No,you would abhor it. But fear Allah. For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.”

Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) asked his companions, “Do you know what’s backbiting?” The Companions replied, “It is to say your absent brother that which he dislikes” Then someone asked, “But what if what I am saying about my brother is true?” The Prophet Answered. “If what you say about him is true, you have backbitten him and if what you say about him is not true, then you have slandered him”.

Please remember to SUBSCRIBE so you get the new videos as soon as they come out If you like the series and you want it to continue, please help us get the word out by posting the video on your site or sending the link to your friends. If enough people are watching, then I will try to make at least 8 episodes and release a new video each Friday InshAllah (see times below). JazakAllah Khair for your support. Don't forget to rate the video on YouTube and comment so I know you're watching.

Great video! Keep up the awesome work Ali!,
Walaikum Salam

Salaamu alaikum Baba Ali - I really liked the advice you gave . .the putting-up-the hand-as-a-witness concept is really good, as we can all use that to connect and remind ourselves of Judgment Day and our body parts being witness to or involved in our errors . .makes you think twice about your actions.
Hey j fo fosho - you should actually make a comment on the video . . but ok, you win :-). -Allah Hafiz from ur American Bro in Prague.

I love the videos, great work MashAllah SWT...

Just wanted to remind you that you didn't say Salam nor Bismillah in this video. : ( I admire the videos because they are rooted in Islam, please continue to include these phrases as they are integral to faith. This is S, reminding you just in case you forgot! : )

Selam aleykum brother. Good topic! It is sad to see so many Muslims doing this these days. Your advice sounds pretty good. I believe there are some hadiths on this subject. You know about talking bad about someone else when they are not there. Or maybe it is in the Quran. I cant quite remember. I know I have read it in one of the two sources. Looking forward to next weeks topic!

O you who believe! Avoid much suspicion, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful. [Qur'an 49:12]

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger, صلى الله عليه و سلم ,as saying: Do you know what is backbiting? They (the Companions) said: Allah and His Messenger know best. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Backbiting implies your talking about your brother in a manner which he does not like. It was said to him: What is your opinion about this that if I actually find (that failing) in my brother which I made a mention of? He said: If (that failing) is actually found (in him) what you assert, you in fact backbited him, and if that is not in him it is a slander. [Muslim]

Ma sha Allah brother, this video was a great reminder for all muslims. I think sometimes people do this without even realizing, but your reminder makes us all look at ourselves and think how we can be better.

This subject is really interesting and should be developped because too many people care about stupid things, which are not essential for them...
Looking for the essential is what muslim should do each day.

So if a video will talk about that, it will be cool :)

As-salamu alaikum brother! I love your web show. It is so funny and it really teaches all of us a great message.

I love your theme song. Its very funny lol. May Allah reward you for this. Ameen. Keep on making these shows!!!

I am a big fan of your work on both videos, but the thing that really bugs me is the theme song to Baba Ali. It isn't very creative, I think that can be fixed. Other than that, I love the videos and advice you give. Keep up the Great work!
