Just curious how one would say to talk behind one's back.

eg.: I heard him talk behind my back the other day.

Thanks in advance,

    In the Islamic tradition ghiiba is saying something about someone that the person would dislike. Namiima is sowing discord between people (going to person A and telling him that person B said something bad about him in order to corrupt their relationship, regardless of if what is said is true or not)

    How would one use these words in a sentence? If I wanted to say

    "She spready lies about me in school" could I roughly say: هي نمّت علي في المدرسة"

    or alternatively if I wanted to say, "she told my parents some of my secrets" "هي اغتابت لوالدي"?
