The Solution to Abstaining from Backbiting

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

I received a letter from a person who wrote to me saying, “If you know any solution for saving oneself from gheebah (backbiting), then please share it with me, I will be grateful.” In reply, I wrote, “The solution is for you to always be conscious and aware that Allah Ta’ala is watching you and that He will take you to account for whatever you do. Similarly, you should endeavour to refrain from gheebah and all types of sins at all times.”

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) thereafter mentioned, “When it comes to practising on the commands of Shari’ah, then a person will not succeed to fulfil the command unless he has firm resolve and determination. Merely reciting some wazeefas will not be sufficient in reforming a person and bringing him onto the path of righteousness.” (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 5/375)
