Muhammad bin Fuzail asked Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.), “May I be sacrificed for you! I have heard a bad thing about one of my brothers in faith. When I talked to that person about this thing, he flatly refused it. I was told about this from very reliable persons.” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Do not accept what you are told about your brother. Even if fifty persons tell you about this, swearing by Allah, then too you should reject it and believe that believer. Keep this matter secret for the fear that he would be disgraced if you don’t do so. See to it that his personality is not stained. If you don’t, you will be like those about whom Allah says: Surely (as for) those who love that scandal should circulate respecting those who believe, they shall have a grievous chastisement in this world and the hereafter.” [Surah Nur 24:19]
Imām Mūsā ibn Ja‘far al-Kāżim (a.s.)
Iqbal al-A`amal, page 311

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who spreads scandal is like one who started it. One who hurts a believer in any way will not die until he has faced the same calamity.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Iqbal al-A`amal, page 311

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his ancestors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said that There are four kinds of people who will involve other inmates of Hell in their punishment. They will wail loudly after drinking boiling water. The people of Hell will ask: “What is the sin of these four types of people for they are given extra punishment in addition to that given to us? Their punishment is increasing our suffering also.” One of them would be hanging in a casket of fire, second will be drinking vomit and smoke, dirt and blood will be coming out of the mouth of the third and fourth will eat his own flesh continuously. The first one will be asked: “O one away from the mercy of Allah! What sin did you commit for which we have to suffer in addition to our own punishment?” He will reply, “I was having rights of others and I died without fulfilling them.” Then the person drinking smoke will be asked, “O one away from the mercy of Allah! What sin did you commit for which we have to suffer in addition to our own punishment?” He will reply, “The reason I am away from the mercy of Allah is that my body used to become impure with urine and I never cared about it.” Then the person whose mouth will have dirt and blood coming out will be asked, “O one away from the mercy of Allah! What sin did you commit for which we have to suffer in addition to our own punishment?” The person will reply, “I am away from the mercy of Allah because I used to spread scandals and publicize obscenity.” Then the person who is eating his own flesh will be asked, “O one away from the mercy of Allah! What sin did you commit for which we have to suffer in addition to our own punishment?” He will reply, “I used to eat the flesh of people by backbiting and used to slander.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Iqbal al-A`amal, page 312/313

“If a brother in faith of a person is being backbited and the person helps his brother the Almighty Allah will help him in the world and hereafter. If a brother in faith of a person is being backbited and the person does not help his brother the Almighty Allah will disgrace him in his world and the hereafter.”
Imām Muhammad ibn ‘Alī al-Baqir (a.s.)
Iqbal al-A`amal, page 316

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his ancestors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who backbites a believing warrior or hurts him or his family members, this deed will be stored at a place which will destroy all of his good deeds and he will be thrown headlong into Hell if the warrior was obedient to Allah.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Iqbal al-A`amal, page 323
