Answer:     Walaikumasslamalaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakutuhu,

The Hadith which you have asked about is present in Musnad Imam Ahmed, Mustadrak ‘Alas Sahihain, Majma Uz Zawaaid, Subul Ul Huda War Rashad, etc.

Translation of Hadith:  It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Dawood Bin Saleh (May Allah be well pleased with them), he said that once Marwan saw that a person had kept his face on the blessed grave of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  Marwan asked: What are you doing?  When he went forward, he saw that that person was Hadhrat Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Allah be well pleased with him).  He said: Yes! I have come to pay my respects to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), I have not come to any piece of stone.  I have heard the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) saying: You don’t cry over the Deen when a person fit for it rules over it, however, you may cry over Deen when somebody not fit for it rules over it.
