QUESTION:

It is only now that I realise the truly harmful effects of 
backbiting. I know want to do istighfar, but, I do not remeber all 
the people that I have spoken about, or they have moved away, etc.  I 
once heard in a maj'lis that there are some tasbihs that you can 
recite and pray that the sawaab of these go to the slandered, please 
can you give me more information on this


ANSWER:

The first step of Isteghfar is to resolve never to commit the sin again.
Then you have to, in the case of backbiting, seek out those you may have
talked ill of and ask for forgiveness. Thereafter, one has to seek
forgiveness from Allah.

Should all these steps be taken in all earnest and sincerity, then Allah is
the Most Merciful and All forgiving.
