خرج علينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذات غداة بعد طلوع الشمس فقال رأيت قبيل الفجر كأني أعطيت المقاليد والموازين فأما المقاليد فهذه المفاتيح وأما الموازين فهذه التي تزنون بها فوضعت في كفة ووضعت أمتي في كفة فوزنت بهم فرجحت ثم جيء بأبي بكر فوزن بهم فوزن ثم جيء بعمر فوزن فوزن ثم جيء بعثمان فوزن بهم ثم رفعت

‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) came out to them one day after sunrise. He said,

I dreamt before dawn as though I am given the keys and balances… I was put in a pan and my ummah in the other pan, and was weighed against them. I outweighed them. Then Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) was brought and was weighed against them and he outweighed them. Then ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) was brought and he too outweighed them. Then, ‘Uthman (رضي الله عنه) was brought and he too outweighed them. Then it was taken away.

Musnad Ahmad and classified sahih by Imam Haythami, Shaykh Ahmad Shakir and Shaykh Albani.
