Admonition Against Nameemah (Tale Carrying) and Those who Spread It – Abul-Hasan Maalik Ibn Aadam

Admonition Against Nameemah (Tale Carrying) and Those who Spread It – Our brother, Abul-Hasan Maalik Ibn Aadam delivers a moving sermon, beginning with the authentic hadeeth, “Indeed, Allaah has made your wealth and your blood and you honour as sacred to one another as this day of yours, in this month of yours in these sacred precincts of yours.”

– Imaam adh-Dhahabee (d.728H) mentions in the 45th sin in his book, al-Kabaa`ir: the nammaam (carrier of tales).

– Imaam al-‘Uthaymeen (d.1421H) mentions that everything that is disliked falls under the category of an-nameemah.

– He mentions aayaat and ahaadeeth about those who swear in abundance and that they are liars.

– He mentions that the people now protect the nammaam by saying, “I don’t want to mention who I heard this from.”

– Imaam adh-Dhahabee mentions that the nammaam is a faasiq (disobedient sinner) and that his narration is rejected.

– adh-Dhahabee also mentions that it is not permissible to suspicions about the one whom the nammaam narrates about.

– adh-Dhahabee says that it is also not permissible to spy upon that person after hearing the nameemah.

– He (i.e. adh-Dhahabee) advises people to not spread that which was mentioned by the nammaam, for the one who spreads it also becomes a nammaam.

– Imaam as-Sa’dee (d.1376H) mentions that it is impermissible to spread nameemah, regardless or whether it happened or didn’t happen.

– Abul-Hasan mentions when he called Shaykhs ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree and Muhammad Baazmool about those who speak ill of one community to another, they both replied that this is a devilish path and that they (i.e. the Scholars) support the Salafees in refuting such people.

He mentions the authentic hadeeth that, “Allaah hates for you three things…he said, she said.”

– Abul-Hasan ends with an exhortation to Ahlus-Sunnah to be from those people who walk proudly with these narrations from the Sunnah upon their shoulders and implement them and spread them and not turn to the nammaam.
