Ibn 'Abbaas (radhi Allaahu anhu) said regarding the saying of Allaah Subhanahu wa ta'ala: "And those who say: "Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders and guides for the pious."
"They mean: who will act in obedience towards You, so by them our eyes will become comforted in the dunyaa (the life of this world) and the Aakhirah (the Hereafter)."
Abdullaah bin 'Umar (radhi Allaahu anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Each one of you is a raa'ee (guardian), and each one of you is responsible for those under his charge. So the Imaam (Ruler) is a guardian and he is responsible for those under his care; a man is a guardian over his family and he is responsible for them; and a wife is a guardian over her husband's house and she is responsible (for it); a slave is a guardian for his master's wealth and property and he is responsible (for that). Beware! All of you are guardians and are responsible for those under his charge."
An-Nawawee said: "The scholars have said that the raa'ee is the guardian, the one who is entrusted, the one committed to the goodness and well-being of what he is responsible for, and what is under his supervison. So in it (this hadeeth) is that everyone who has something under his care and supervision, then it demands justice in it, and establishing what is beneficial to him in his Deen and his Dunyaa and those things related to him."
