Abu Aliyah on Fasting: Backbiting ruins fasting as worship

May 29, 2017

Ibn As-Sari reported: Abu Al-‘Alyiah, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “The fasting person is in an act of worship as long as he does not backbite anyone, even if he is sleeping on his bed.”

عن هناد بن السري عَنْ أَبِي الْعَالِيَةِ رحمه الله قَالَ الصَّائِمُ فِي عِبَادَةٍ مَا لَمْ يَغْتَبْ وَإِنْ كَانَ نَائِمًا عَلَى فِرَاشِهِ
