Could you verify this narration?

“When there is wastage/extravagance, adultery [zina] and deception/treachery found in one’s home, then the blessings [barakah] will be removed”



I have not come across these words as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) has recorded this as the statement of the Tabi’i, Yahya ibn Abi Kathir (rahimahullah).

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 3 pg. 69)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
