A narration on ‘Five actions that break the fast’

Question

Can you kindly translate Al ‘Iraqi’s assessment of this Hadith:

 حديث جابر عن انس: خمس يفطرن الصائم الكذب والغيبة والنميمة واليمين الكاذبة والنظر بشهوة

قال العراقي: أخرجه الأزدي في الضعفاء من رواية جابان عن انس وقوله جابر تصحيف قال أبو حاتم الرازي هذا كذاب

Translation: There are five things that break the fast, Speaking lies, backbiting, carrying tales, false oaths and casting lustful gazes.

Answer

 

The explanatory translation of ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi’s analysis is as follows:

“[Imam] Azdi has recorded this narration in ‘Ad Du’afa’ on the authority of Jaban who reported from Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Ghazali (rahimahullah) cited this narration on the authority of Jabir who reported from Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu). However this is incorrect. Abu Hatim Ar Razi (rahimahullah) has declared Jaban as a liar.

(Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 738)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
