Q: My friend was treated badly by her former friends and sometimes she tells me about what happened and how she feels. She gets angry/upset when she talks. I think I’ve seen pics of her friends before and think I heard their names. Is it backbiting?
A: Ask her not to give any names. She may give the moral without mentioning names or descriptions of the person.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
