Please confirm if the following is a Hadith, and its reference:

‘There are three types of people who are in the security/care of Allah Ta’ala, A man who goes out to fight in the path of Allah, is in the care of Allah, until he is martyred and enters Jannah or until Allah returns him to his family with reward and booty and a man who goes to the masjid is in the security of Allah, and the third person in the care of Allah is a person who enters his home with salam’


The narration in question is recorded by Imam Abu Dawud and Imam Hakim (rahimahumallah)

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 2494 and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 74)

Imam Hakim and Hafiz Dhahabi (rahimahumallah) have authenticated the Hadith.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
