Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abbaad was asked:


“Is speaking about a people or a specific people of a land with what they dislike considered backbiting?”


“This is backbiting no doubt because a person himself would not love anyone speaking about the people of his land or dispraise the people of his land because he is one of them”. End. [Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 557]
