In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Ibn Umar [radiyallaahu-anhumaa] said:

There was neither rumour mongering in the time of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] nor in the time of Abu Bakr [radiyallaahu-anhu]; neither in the time of Umar [radiyallaahu-anhu] nor in the time of Uthmaan [radiyallaahu-anhu]; rather rumour mongering started in the time of Fitan.”
