Please let me know if the following narration is correctly translated and provide the reference

Mu’adh ibn Jabal (radiyallahu ‘anhu) related that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever strives in the way of Allah, his safety is assured by Allah. Whoever visits a sick person, his safety is assured by Allah. Whoever visits the Masjid in the morning or evening, his safety is assured by Allah. Whoever enters upon a leader to honour him/assist him, his safety is assured by Allah. Whoever sits in his house and does not backbite any human being, his safety is assured by Allah.”



Imams Ibn Khuzaymah and Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith and have declared it authentic (sahih).

(Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, as part of a longer narration, Hadith: 1495, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 372)
