Hadith #6

وَ عَنْهُ عَنْ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ مِسْمَعٍ أَبِي سَيَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) أَنَّ رَجُلًا قَالَ لَهُ إِنَّ مَنْ قِبَلَنَا يَرْوُونَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ يُبْغِضُ بَيْتَ اللَّحِمِ فَقَالَ صَدَقُوا وَ لَيْسَ حَيْثُ ذَهَبُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ يُبْغِضُ الْبَيْتَ الَّذِي تُؤْكَلُ فِيهِ لُحُومُ النَّاسِ.

6. It is narrated from the narrator of the previous Hadith from ‘Uthman ibn ‘Isa from Misma‘ abu Sayyar who has said the following: “Once, a man said to abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘People before us narrate that Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, dislikes the house of meat.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘They have spoken the truth, but not as they think it is. It is in the sense that Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, dislikes the house in which people eat other peoples’ meat (backbite them).”’
