Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "When one of you stays away (from his family) for a long period of time, let him not surprise his family by night."
In another narration, Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ prohibited us from coming back to our family at night.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
عن جابر رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال:
"إذا أطال أحدكم الغيبة فلا يطرقن أهله ليلاً"
وفي رواية أن رسول الله ﷺ نهى أن يطرق الرجل أهله ليلاً. ((متفق عليه))
