Slander, backbiting, holding one's tongue...

Slander, backbiting, holding one's tongue and leaving that which does not concern one...


Is there a simple way of telling if one is hearing slander?  It seems that speaking ill of a person is permissible sometimes and I can't usually tell the difference between what is permissible and what is not with regard to this. As a result I have trouble stopping people from speaking ill others.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

Please see the following links:

Fiqh for the Righteousness: The prohibition against backbiting & the command to guard the tongue (Riyad al-Salihin by Imam al-Nawawi)

The Rules of Backbiting

Backbiting the unknown?

Some Fiqh of Speech: Mentioning Another Negatively Thinking the Listener Does Not Know Them

What does it mean, "Leave that which does not concern you?" If I am interested in something, doesn't it "concern me?"
