Sheikh I wanted to ask a Many times we backbite and I know it a grave sin. Will I be forgiven If I ask forgiveness from Allah about backbiting? Or I have ask that person to forgive me? What if I can’t ask that Person, Maybe he is not here or It can cause problem or misinterpted if I confess to him. Will Allah forgive back biting?

If confessing it and asking for forgiveness would lead him to forgive
you, this is a must
But if you know or fear that doing so would cause more damage and
harm, avoid it and repent with sincere remorse.
