May Allah grant us humility and understanding
Question: Does speaking about a people or a specific people of a land with what they dislike considered backbiting?
Answer: “This is backbiting no doubt because a person himself would not love anyone speaking about the people of his land or dispraise the people of his land because he is one of them”.
