عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ، قَالَ رَسُولَ اللّٰہِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

كُلُّكُمْ رَاعٍ وَكُلُّكُمْ مَسْئُوْلٌ، فَالْإِمَامُ رَاعٍ وَھُوَ مَسْئُوْلٌ وَالرَّجُلُ رَاعٍ عَلَی أَهْلِهِ وَهُوَ مَسْئُوْلٌ، وَالْمَرْأَۃُ رَاعِيَةٌ عَلَی بَيْتِ زَوْجِهَا وَھِیَ مَسْئُوْلَةٌ، وَالْعَبْدُ رَاعٍ عَلَی مَالِ سَيِّدِهِ وَھُوَمَسْئُوْلٌ، أَلَا فَکُلُّکُمْ رَاعٍ وَکُلُّکُمْ مَسْئُوْلٌ

Hazrat Abdullah, Allah be pleased with him, narrates that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said, ‘‘Every one of you is a guardian and every one of you is responsible [for his wards]. A ruler is a guardian and is responsible [for his subjects]; a man is a guardian of his family and responsible [for them]; a wife is a guardian of her husband’s house and she is responsible [for it], a slave is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible [for that]. Beware! All of you are guardians and are responsible [for your wards].’’

(Sahih al-Bukhari, Kitab al-Nikah, Hadith 5188)
