Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) exemplary conduct

Question

What is the reference for this Hadith?

Objection on the famous story of Harith bin Malik (radiyallahu’anhu)

Question

In the daily Ta`lim, the narration was read from Muntakhab Ahadith regarding Harith ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replying to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) that he is a true mu’min.

A brother asked in front of everyone about the authenticity of the narration after it was read. He said that the part of ‘turning oneself away from the world’ seemed doubtful (to him) because, in the more literal sense, that is not necessary in Islam.

Please (1) comment on the authenticity of the narration and (2) likewise give an explanation of the part referring to ‘turning away from the world’.
