From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 53, Wills and Testaments (Wasaya)
Hadith No: 23
Narrated/Authority of Ibn Abbas
Some people claim that the order in the above Verse (3.92 [Hadith 22]) is abrogated, by Allah, it is not abrogated, but the people have stopped acting on it. There are two kinds of guardians (who are in charge of the inheritance): One is that who inherits; such a person should give (of what he inherits to the relatives, the orphans and the needy, etc.), the other is that who does not inherit (e.g. the guardian of the orphans): such a person should speak kindly and say (to those who are present at the time of distribution), "I can not give it to you (as the wealth belongs to the orphans)."
