Sahih Muslim Book 031, Hadith Number 5879.

Chapter : The merits of Abu Bakr Siddiq (Allah be pleased with him).

'Aisha reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) in his (last) illness asked me to call Abu Bakr, her father, and her brother too, so that he might write a document, for he feared that someone else might be desirous (of succeeding him) and that some claimant may say: I have better claim to it, whereas Allah and the Faithful do not substantiate the claim of anyone but that of Abu Bakr.
