And those who annoy believing men and women undeservedly, bear on themselves the crime of slander and
plain sin

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Two matters are
signs of disbelief on the part of those who indulge in them: Defaming and speaking evil of a person's lineage, and
wailing over the dead
Both the sins mentioned in this Hadith are such that if a Muslim thinks them lawful and still commits
them he will become a Kafir. To defame someone's lineage means to disgrace or humiliate somebody by saying to
him or to her: "
Your father belongs to such and such profession
'' or "
Your mother is such and such / so-and-so
'' or
You are a weaver, blacksmith, laundrer, cobbler, etc
Mourning and wailing means expressing qualities of a deceased person through weeping, crying and lamenting
loudly. Imam An-Nawawi said that such qualities are attributes and acts of the disbelievers and practices of the pre-
Islamic period, or Jahiliyyah.
