A narration about hospitality

Question

Can you please confirm if the following is a Hadith and what its source is.

A woman came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and complained to him about her husband that he invites too many guests and she has become weary from preparing food for them and hosting them. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) did not answer and the woman left.

Sometime later Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) called the woman’s husband and said, “I am your guest today.” The man was so happy he went home and told his wife “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is our guest today.” His wife was ecstatic and spent time and effort and used every bit of food to prepare for the arrival of the Most Honored Guest, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam).

After the amazing joy of hosting Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) generously Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) told the man, ‘tell your wife to watch the door from which I leave your home.”

So the wife watched the door from which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) left her home and saw all kinds of creatures, scorpions and other harmful creatures leaving the house behind Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) upon which she fainted due to the immense manifestation and greatness of what she had witnessed.

When she came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), he said to her, “this is what happens when the guest leaves your home, with him all kinds of harm, trials and tribulations and harmful creatures depart from your home, and that is the wisdom behind being generous to one’s guest and becoming weary doing so.” Read More »
