In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Narrated Abu Musa [radiyallaahu-anhu]: Two men from my tribe and I entered upon the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]. One of the two men said to the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam], ‘’O Allaah’s Messenger! Appoint me as a governor,’ and so did the second. The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, ‘’We do not assign the authority of the ruling to those who ask for it, nor those who are keen to have it.’’
