Dreams about backbiting can be caused by guilt you are experiencing from the waking world. Sometimes, backbiting is a common sign that you are feeling inferior to someone or unworthy somehow. Suppose this is combined with other dreams where you fear being humiliated and not up to par. In that case, there may be an issue of self-confidence plaguing you.
Backbiting can also symbolize a need to take back control of your life. Suppose you have been feeling victimized in some way. In that case, you may be dreaming about backbiting as a means of empowerment over an external force or situation which has controlled you.
For example, at your workplace, a colleague’s been pushing your work as his own, and you are thinking of getting back at him in your dream. This doesn’t mean that your conscience is driving you to be aggressive and confrontational. Instead, it is a reflection of the fact that you feel so miserable at work that something must change.
You are the one being backbitten
In your dream, this situation may have taken a turn for the worse, and it is possible that you feel frustrated because of what happened in the dream. Perhaps someone has backbitten you to your face or maybe have done so behind your back. This suggests that you need to assert yourself, stop being a pushover, and reclaim control over your life.
The person who is backbiting you in your dream may be someone close to you, such as a friend, family member, or loved one. The message behind the dream is that you need to open up and share how you feel.
A familiar person is being backbitten

You might feel as though you are being manipulated or controlled by others. In that case, it suggests that you need to take a good look at your current relationships.
Another interpretation of a person being backbitten is that this represents their vulnerability and how easily they can be injured. It would be best to learn to put up a protective shield around them to stop other people from hurting them.
A strange person is being backbitten
If you see strange people or people you don’t know being backbitten in your dream, it suggests that you are feeling vulnerable. It would be best if you protect yourself from the unexpected and unknown. It might also indicate that you think you are not getting the respect and appreciation you deserve from others.
If a strange person is backbitten in your dream, then this suggests that there is something that you are not saying that is causing someone to feel like they can criticize and insult you. Perhaps a lack of respect or trust needs to be restored between you and the person who has been backbitten in your dream. This may have occurred because of some wrongdoing on your part, or it may just be a reflection of something that person is insecure about in themselves.
