Can you mention the reference for this narration?
Maymun ibn Mihran (rahimahullah) used to say, “Were the people of the Quran righteous, all people would be righteous.”
Imam Abu Bakr Al-Ajurry (rahimahullah) and Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) have recorded this statement of Maymun ibn Mihran (rahimahullah).
(Akhlaqu Ahlil Quran, pg. 104 and Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 4 pg. 83)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
