People are under the protection of Allah when a pious person lives among them

Question

Can you provide the source of this narration?

إن الله ليصلح بصلاح العبد ولده وولد ولده وأهل دويرته وأهل الدويرات حوله فما يزالون في حفظ من الله ما دام بينهم

 

Answer

Imams Nasai and Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration as the statement of Muhammad ibnul Munkadir (rahimahullah), a Tabi’i.

(As Sunanul Kubra: 11866, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah: 36564)

 

Translation

Through the piety of a person, Allah rectifies his children, his grandchildren, the people living in his home as well as the people living in the neighbouring homes. They all remain under the protection of Allah, as long as this person remains among them.
