7 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن علي بن محمد البصري البزاز قال: حدثنا أبو بشر أحمد بن إبراهيم قال: حدثنا زكريا بن يحيى الساجي قال: حدثنا عبد الجبار قال: حدثنا سفيان، عن الوليد بن كثير، عن ابن الصياد ، عن سعيد بن المسيب قال: لما قبض النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ارتجت مكة بنعيه، فقال أبو قحافة: ما هذا؟ قالوا: قبض رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم. قال: فمن ولي الناس بعده؟ قالوا: ابنك، قال: فهل رضيت بنو عبد شمس وبنو المغيرة ؟ قالوا: نعم، قال: لا مانع لما أعطى الله ولا معطي لما منع الله، ما أعجب هذا الأمر، تنازعون النبوة، وتسلمون الخلافة، إن هذا لشئ يراد .


7. He said: Abul Hasan ‘Ali ibn Muhammad al-Basari al-Bazzaz reported to me from Abu Bishr Ahmad ibn Ibrahim, who reported from Zakariyya ibn Yahya al-Saji, who reported from Abdul Ja’far, from Sufyan, from al-Waleed ibn Katheer, from Ibn al-Sayyad, from Saeed ibn al-Musayyab who said: When the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, died, the whole Makkah was shaken with deep sorrow. Then Abu Qahafa said: "What is happening?" They told him: "The Prophet has departed." He said: "Who has assumed authority over people after him?" They told him: "Your son." He asked: "Did Banu Abd Shams and Banu al-Mughaira approve?" They said: "Yes." He said: "No one can prevent that which Allah bestows and no one can give what Allah takes away. What a surprise! They dispute the Prophethood and easily give the Caliphate! Surely, this seems to have been destined."
