‘Abdullah (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (Sall Allah-o-alaihe wa sallam) said: “Everyone of you is a guardian and he is accountable for his charge. Thus, the Amir is a guardian of the people and he is accountable for them; and a man is a guardian of his family members and he is accountable for them; and a woman is an incharge of the house of her husband and his children and she is accountable for them; and a slave is guardian of his master’s property and he is accountable for it. Beware, everyone of you is guardian and everyone of you is accountable for his subjects.”
