According to Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet PBUH once asked his listners if they knew what slander was, to which they replied that God and His Messenger knew better. The Prophet PBUH then explained that slander meant speaking of one's brother in a manner that was hurtful to him. He ws then asked, what if one's brother was actually at fault. The Prophet PBUH replied that, if he was at fault, then what was said against him was just backbiting and, if he was not, it was calumny.
