      Ascertain the Truth from News Brought By Wicked Persons

      The Holy Quran says “O You Who Believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, Ascertain the truth, lest you harm people unwittingly, & afterwards become full of repentance for what you have done.”

       

      Holy Quran

      Chapter Al Hujurat 49:6

       

      Commentary – Abdullah Yusuf Ali

      All tittle-tattle or reports – especially emanating from persons you do not know – are to be tested & the truth ascertained. If they were believed & passed on, much harm may be done, of which you may have cause afterwards to repent heartily. Scandal or slander of all kinds is here condemned. That about women is specially denounced.

       

      Comments – Mine

      Gossiping is a human nature. Many people resort to this to show others that they are in the know than them. It can be tolerated to some extent if it is harmless. But generally a story may start off with an innocent subject & then gets spiced up as it gets passed by word of mouth. At the end it becomes a harmful piece of story for all concerned.
