Hudhayfah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "A scandalmonger will not enter Paradise."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) warns of a severe punishment awaiting the scandalmonger who spreads rumors to cause mischief. He will not enter Paradise at the beginning, instead he will be punished first in accordance with the extent of his sin. Therefore, this Hadīth indicates that this act is a major sin.
