Dear Brother / Sister,
In the religion of Islam, along with man's life, his belief, chastity, freedom, goods, property honor and dignity are protected. For, the peace and happiness of man in this world and the hereafter are based on the items mentioned above.
To violate the material or spiritual rights of a person is a great offense in the eye of Allah and it is not included in the scope of Allah's pardoning. That is, if you violate the rights of a person, you can be forgiven only by that person. Allah does not forgive that crime unless the other person receives his right or waives his right. Everybody has to show respect to the rights of others in the religion of Islam.
Man is a being that has a social life. Then, there are numerous social relationships among people. These relationships need to be established on truth and justice. Otherwise, violation of people's rights and oppression will occur.
The Quran protects the spiritual rights of people so much that it prohibits believers from harboring sinister suspicions about others, spying on others and backbiting.
“O ye who believe! avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: and spy not on each other, nor speak ill of each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother?” (al-Hujurat, 12)
Now, let us think fairly: Does a religion that prohibits backbiting and spying on others allow anarchy, terror and killing others unjustly?
