Tale Carrying Is More Severe Than Magic by Shaykh Salih Al-Fawzan

October 28, 2010

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
Tale carrying is to transmit speech between the people with the intent of destroying their relationships. Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَا تُطِعْ كُلَّ حَلَّافٍ مَّهِينٍ – هَمَّازٍ مَّشَّاءٍ بِنَمِيمٍ

‘And obey not everyone who swears much, and is considered worthless, a slanderer, going about with calumnies’ [Surah AL-Qalam; 68:10-11]

And the severest of all of that is the one who hastens to destroy the relationship between the students of knowledge and the callers to Islaam; and in order to divide the Jamaaýah of the Muslims and incite hatred between them. The one who does this is a nammaam (a tale carrier).

Indeed, Allaah (The Most High) has made it impermissible to follow and believe such a person even if he swears by Allaah, as Allaah said:

وَلَا تُطِعْ كُلَّ حَلَّافٍ مَّهِينٍ – هَمَّازٍ مَّشَّاءٍ بِنَمِيمٍ

‘And obey not everyone who swears much, and is considered worthless, a slanderer, going about with calumnies’ [Surah AL-Qalam; 68:10-11]

The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

‘The tale carrier will not enter paradise’

And it is reported in a narration that the tale carrier causes more corruption in an hour than a magician can cause in a year.

Tale carrying is of magic, because the magician corrupts the relationship between the people and causes enmity between them, as Allaah (The Most High) said:

فَيَتَعَلَّمُونَ مِنْهُمَا مَا يُفَرِّقُونَ بِهِ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَزَوْجِهِ

‘And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife’ [Surah AL-Baqarah; 2:102]

They learnt magic and magic causes splitting of the hearts and enmity. Likewise, tale carrying is more severe than magic; perhaps wars may occur due to the Tale Carrier; and perhaps the Muslims may split and show enmity to one another due to the Tale Carrier; neighbours may boycott one another and one’s household may show enmity to one another and split due to a Tale Carrier.

Therefore, we must fear Allaah (Azza-Wa-Jal) and be mindful of the Tale Carrier [1] end of quote
