Abu Dawud Book 13, Hadith Number 2969.

Chapter : Not known.

Narated By Umar ibn al-Khattab : AbulBakhtari said: I heard from a man a tradition which I liked. I said to him: Write it down for me. So he brought it clearly written to me.

(It says): Al-Abbas and Ali entered upon Umar when Talhah, az-Zubayr, AbdurRahman and Sa’d were with him. They (Abbas and Ali) were disputing.

Umar said to Talhah, az-Zubayr, AbdurRahman and Sa’d: Do you not know that the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) said: All the property of the Prophet (PBUH) is sadaqah (alms), except what he provided for his family for their sustenance and their clothing. We are not to be inherited.

They said: Yes, indeed. He said: The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) used to spend from his property on his family, and give the residue as sadaqah (alms). The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) then died, and AbuBakr ruled for two years. He would deal with it in the same manner as the Apostle of Allah (PBUH) did. He then mentioned a little from the tradition of Malik ibn Aws.
