From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 38, Transferance of a Debt from One Person to Another (Al-Hawaala)
Hadith No: 494
Narrated/Authority of Said bin Jubair
Ibn Abbas said, "In the verse: And to everyone, We have appointed ' (Muwaliya Mawaliya means one's) heirs (4.33).' (And regarding the verse) 'And those with whom your right hands have made a pledge.' Ibn Abbas said, "When the emigrants came to the Prophet (SAW) in Medina, the emigrant would inherit the Ansari while the latter's relatives would not inherit him because of the bond of brotherhood which the Prophet (SAW) established between them (i.e. the emigrants and the Ansar). When the verse: 'And to everyone We have appointed heirs' (4.33) was revealed, it cancelled (the bond (the pledge) of brotherhood regarding inheritance)." Then he said, "The verse: To those also to whom your right hands have pledged, remained valid regarding co-operation and mutual advice, while the matter of inheritance was excluded and it became permissible to assign something in one's testament to the person who had the right of inheriting before.
