Verse (49:12)

The analysis above refers to the twelfth verse of chapter 49 (sūrat l-ḥujurāt):

Sahih International: O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.
