Sahih Muslim Vol. 4, Ch. 1069, Hadith No. 6265

Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

“Do you know what is backbiting?” (The Companions) said: Allah and His Messenger know best. Thereupon (The Holy Prophet) said: “Backbiting implies your talking about your brother in a manner  which he  does not like.”

It was said to the Prophet (pbuh): What is your opinion  about this that if I actually find (that failing) in my brother which i made a mention of. He said: “if (that failing) is actually found (in him) what you assert, you in fact  backbited him, and if that is not in him it is a slander.”
