Sa’id on Backbiting: All their good deeds are spoiled by backbiting

Ibn al-Jawzi reported: Sa’id ibn al-Jubayr, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “A servant will be brought on the Day of Resurrection and presented with his record. He will not see his prayers, nor his fasting, nor his good deeds. He will say: O Lord, this is the record of someone else, for I had good deeds not in this record. It will be said to him: Verily, your Lord does not overlook or forget. Your deeds have vanished because you were backbiting people.”

عن ابن الجوزي قال سعيد بن جبير رضي الله عنه قال يؤتى بالعبد يوم القيامة فيدفع له كتابه فلا يرى فيه صلاته ولا صيامه ويرى أعماله الصالحة فيقول يا رب هذا كتاب غيري كانت لي حسنات ليست في هذا الكتاب فيقال له إن ربك لا يضل ولا ينسى ذهب عملك باغتيابك الناس
