Is backbiting the food of the dogs of Jahannam?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

I heard a Hadith that ghibah [backbiting] is the diet of the dogs of Jahannam, is this true?

 

Answer

I have not come across this in any authentic Hadith source. This appears in Shi’ah sources.

The narration should not be quoted until the chain can be located and then verified.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
