A narration on guests

Question

Is this a Hadith?

كل بيت لا يدخل فيه الضيف لا تدخله الملائكة

 

Answer

Imam Ghazali (rahimahullah) has cited this in Ihya ‘Ulumid Din, as the statement of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu) [and not as a Hadith of Nabi -sallallahu’alayhi wasallam-], without mentioning a source.

(Refer: Sharhul Ihya, vol.5 pg.240)

 

Translation

The Angels do not enter that home in which no guest has entered.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
