One of the worst traits a person can have is to speak ill behind someone's back when they cannot defend themselves. It is important we realize and accept that at some point even those with good character have gossiped and have been sinful.
We are taught that those who hide the mistakes and errors of others, Allah will shelter their shortcomings on the day of judgement and in this transient world. There are 4 steps to over come gossiping:
► Control your Tongue.
► Make Amends.
► Speak good about the one you spoke bad about.
► Let them know you disclosed something that was an amanah and apologize.
