A sincere seeker inquired,
‘During Hajj I met two brothers whose profiles are such:
Brother A spends 40 days in Jamat almost every year and is active in the work of Tabligh.
Brother B does not have Ijazat from his Shaykh but he has had reformatory relationship (islahi Ta’lluq) for 30+ years.
I was both shocked and worried when I heard words of backbiting (Gheebah) from both of them (in different instances).
Hazrat what can be the reason that even after being associated with a (reliable) Shaykh for 30+ years, or spending 40 days in Jamat each year the major sin of Gheebah is not eliminated? I am worried that I may be in the same situation as them in the future…’
