Will you not appoint a successor?

leave a comment »

‘Ali (رضي الله عنه) was asked, “Will you not appoint a successor?”

He said, ” No rather, I shall leave you just as Allah’s Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) left you. If Allah has decreed good for you then He will bring you together to select the best of you just as He made you choose the best of you after Allah’s Messenger  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) .”

This was an acknowledgement by ‘Ali (رضي الله عنه) just before his death that Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) was superior in excellence.
