What is the source of this narration?
Sayyiduna Jabir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said:
“When you fast, then let your hearing, your sight and tongue also fast from speaking lies and carrying out forbidden deeds, and do not cause harm to your servant. When you fasting, you should be dignified and calm. Do not make the day you are not fasting and the day of your fasting the same.”
This statement of Sayyiduna Jabir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) is recorded in Kitabuz Zuhd of Imam ‘Abdullah ibn Al Mubarak, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah and other Primary sources.
(Kitabuz Zuhd: 1308, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah: 8973)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
