37 Backbiting Or Calumny #19

Backbiting, slander and dwelling on the faults of others have been

repeatedly condemned by Baha'u'llah. In the Hidden Words, He clearly

states: O Son of Being! How couldst thou forget thine own faults and busy

thyself with the faults of others? Whoso doeth this is accursed of Me.

And again: O Son of Man! Breathe not the sins of others so long as thou

art thyself a sinner. Shouldst thou transgress this command, accursed

wouldst thou be, and to this I bear witness. This strong admonition is

further reiterated in His last work, the Book of My Covenant: Verily I

say, the tongue is for mentioning what is good, defile it not with

unseemly talk. God hath forgiven what is past. Henceforward everyone

should utter that which is meet and seemly, and should refrain from

slander, abuse and whatever causeth sadness in men.
