أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار قال: حدثنا محمد بن احمد قال حدثنا أبو عبد الله الرازي عن الحسن بن علي بن النعمان عن اسباط بن محمد يرفعه إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وإله الغيبة أشد من الزنا، فقيل يا رسول الله ولم ذاك؟ قال: صاحب الزنا يتوب فيتوب الله عليه، وصاحب الغيبة يتوب فلا يتوب الله عليه حتى يكون صاحبه الذي اغتابه يحله.


1. My father said, ‘Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Ataar narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Abu Abdullah Al Razy, from Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Al Noman, from Asbaat Bin Muhammad, (It has been narrated) raising it to the Prophet (saww). Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘The backbiting is severer than the adultery’. So it was said, ‘O Rasool-Allah (saww)! And why is that so?’ He (saww) said: ‘The committer of the adultery repents, so Allah (azwj) Turns towards him (with Mercy), and the committer of the backbiting repents, but Allah (azwj) does not Turn towards him (with Mercy) until the backbit one permits it’.
