that Talhah bin Musarrif said: "I said to Abdullah bin Abu Awfa: 'Did the Messenger of Allah (saw) make a will concerning anything?'

Malik said: "Talhah bin Musarrif said: 'Huzail bin Shurahbil said: "Abu Bakr was granted leadership according to the will of Allah's Messenger (saw)?" (Rather) Abu Bakr wished that he found a covenant (in that regard) from Allah's Messenger (saw), so he could fetter his nose with a (camel's) nose ring." Sahih
