The worst people are those who gossip and create rift between people

Question

Can you provide the reference for this narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The worst among the servants of Allah are those who gossip and create rifts between friends”

 

Answer

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer narration. Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has also recorded this narration in Al Adabul Mufrad.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 227 and Al Adabul Mufrad, Hadith: 323)

 

The Hadith is suitable to quote and is sufficiently corroborated and may be quoted.

(Refer: Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 499)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
