Ali about Abu Bakr

عن أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام لما قيل له  ألا توصي  فقال ما أوصى رسول الله  صلى الله عليه وسلم فأوصي  ولكن إذا أراد الله بالناس خيراً استجمعهم على خيرهم كما جمعهم بعد نبيهم على خيرهم

Amir ul Momineen (i.e Ali) was asked “Would you not make a will (to make someone as successor)? He said “The Prophet (s) didn’t make a will, I will also not make a will” But if Allah wants the welfare of the people, He will unite them on the best man amongst them, just like Allah united the people on the best person after the Prophet (s) .

Al Shafi , p. 171 , Najaf

 

عن علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه أنه قيل له  ألاتوصي  فقال  ما أوصى رسول الله  فأوصي ولكن قال   أي الرسول  إن أراد الله خيرا فيجمعهم على خيرهم بعد نبيهم

Amir ul Momineen was asked “Would you not make a will?” He said “When the Prophet (s) didn’t do make a will, than will I make a will?” But he (s) said “If Allah wills their welfare, than He will unite them on the best person after  the Prophet (s)”
