The virtue of guarding the Muslim camp

Question

Can you please provide reference for the narration below:

Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was asked about the reward of guarding the Muslim army at night. He replied “Whoever keeps watch of the security of the Muslims for a night, he will receive the reward of all those who offer Salah and fast.”

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith.

(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 8055)

 

‘Allamah Mundhiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain authentic (jayyid). ‘Allamah Haythami and ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahumallah) have declared the narrators reliable (thiqat).
