With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 49 (Hujaraat)
49:06. “O ye who believe! if a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, Lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done.”
The ayah above states that when we hear news from unreliable sources it is important to verify if it is true. Accepting news without verification may hurt someone if it is not true. One may have a bad impression of someone, or may even act against someone based upon on untrue news. We may as a result hurt them and regret our attitude or actions afterwards. Thus, it is important to verify news rather than believe everything we hear.
Cross reference: 17.36. “and pursue not that of which Thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of (feeling in) the heart will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).”
