The Ruling on Speaking Bad About a Specific Country and It’s People – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

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”.

[Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 557]
