I know that you have to ask forgiveness from a person if you have wronged them with regards to material possessions but what if it's related to something intangible like may be going through their personal stuff and they not knowing about it, I've read that it is not necessary to ask forgiveness from that person but only from Allah SWT as revealing it might hurt the relationship and the person's character, is this true?

Bismillah
Al-Jawab Billahi At-Taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

Below is an extract from “Mukhtasar Minhaj al-Qasideen” (being Ibn Qudamah’s abridgement of Ibn al-Jawzi’s summary of al-Ghazzali’s “Ihya’ `Ulum al-Deen”)

Expiation for Ghibah

The backbiter has committed two infringements; one upon the limits of Allah, and this must be expiated by repentance and regret. The second is on the rights of his brothers/sisters. If news of the backbiting has reached the person, the backbiter must apologize to him/her, and express regret at having said it.

“Whoever has wronged his brother, in the way of property or honor, let him go to him and repair it, before it is taken [from him on a day] when he has no dirhams or dinars, such that if he has any good deeds, some of the good deeds will be taken and given to [the wronged one], otherwise [if he has no good deeds], some of the other’s evil deeds will be taken and cast upon him.” [Bukhari, Al-Mazalim, 5/121, #2449. Ahmad, Al-Musnad, 2/435]

If the person has not learned that he has been backbited, then the backbiter need not tell him, but he should ask Allah to forgive him.

“The expiation with regard to one who has been backbited is that forgiveness be asked for him.” [Suyuti, Al-Jami` As-Saghir, 2/390, #6259]

Mujahid said : the expiation for eating the flesh of your brother is that you praise him and pray for good for him, and similar is the case if he has died.

Also, refer to Al Mishkat, Book of Ettiquetes, Chapter: Protecting the Tongue, Hadith No. 4877. (Islahi Khutbaat Vol. 4 Pg. 94)

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.

This post has been reported. It could be due to breaking rules or something as simple as bad use of bbcodes which breaks the page format. We will attend to this soon.
