Quran Quote  : 

وَيۡلٌ لِّـكُلِّ هُمَزَةٍ لُّمَزَةِۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

1. Woe (1( unto every slanderer, backbiter (2)

Reason for its Revelation: Akhnees bin Shareek, Waleed bin Mugheerah, Umayyah bin Khalaf, etc. were boastfully wagging their tongues about their wealth and saying words of taunting regarding the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم and his Noble Companions. This Surah was revealed regarding them (Tafseer Azizi, etc.).

1. In the world at the time of death, as well as in the grave and at the time of resurrection. The word WAIL means woe and remorse. It is also one region of Hell, which is very severe in heat. It tells us that slandering about the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم and His Noble Companions is the most heinous form of infidelity.

2. HAMIZ is the plural of HUMAZAH meaning slanderer and LAMIZ is the plural of LUMAZAH meaning backbiter. There are a few differences in these words. To speak evil in the presence of the person is HUMAZAH and to speak evil in his absence is LUMAZAH. To speak evil verbally is HUMAZAH while saying this by hinting is LUMAZAH. To speak evil of Someone directly is HUMAZAH while talking ill of anything of his is LUMAZAH. To speak ill clearly is HUMAZAH while speaking ill symbolically or secretly is LUMAZAH. It should be remembered that there are three types of insulting the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم and all three are infidelity:

1. To insult in clear words like saying "certainly you are a madman" (S15:V6).

2. To say such words in the lofty status of the Holy Prophet - which could have an evil meaning like, RAINA, which the infidels would use to slight the dignity of the Holy Prophet s.a.w.

3. To praise the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم with evil intention for the purpose of deceiving like the utterance of the hypocrites to the Holy Prophet are that you are the Messenger of Allah. The first type is HUMAZAH, the other two LUMAZAH. From this we understand the slightest insult of the Noble Companions and the sacred city of Madina is an act of infidelity. It should be remembered that Praising Allah Almighty is the practice of the Holy Prophet while praising the i.e. Naat Shareef is Prophet - the practice of Allah Almighty while insulting the dignity of the Prophet is the practice of Shaitaan. All forms of worship will come to an end but the praises of the Holy Prophet will continue in the grave and on the Day of Judgement. Allah Almighty is the object of Praise of the entire creation and the Holy Prophet is صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم object of praise of the creation as well as object of praise of the Creator. For this reason his blessed name is MUHAMMAD ie, one who is highly praised.
