QuestionWhen I am having a discussion about a person who is absent, is it permissible to say about him, "So and so, the cripple or one-eyed?" Answer
If by calling him this you are simply identifying who he is, this is permissible; in certain narrations, we come across "so and so Al-'Amash (blear-eyed)" and "so and so Al-'Araj (cripple)." But if it is done out of scorn or backbiting then it is not allowed.
Shaikh Ibn Baz (Rahimahullah)
