َحَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَهَّابِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْمَجِيدِ حَدَّثَنَا خَالِدٌ الْحَذَّاءُ عَنْ أَبِي قِلَابَةَ عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ أَرْحَمُ أُمَّتِي بِأُمَّتِي أَبُو بَكْرٍ وَأَشَدُّهُمْ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ عُمَرُ وَأَصْدَقُهُمْ حَيَاءً عُثْمَانُ وَأَقْضَاهُمْ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ وَأَقْرَؤُهُمْ لِكِتَابِ اللَّهِ أُبَيُّ بْنُ كَعْبٍ وَأَعْلَمُهُمْ بِالْحَلَالِ وَالْحَرَامِ مُعَاذُ بْنُ جَبَلٍ وَأَفْرَضُهُمْ زَيْدُ بْنُ ثَابِتٍ أَلَا وَإِنَّ لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَمِينًا وَأَمِينُ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ أَبُو عُبَيْدَةَ بْنُ الْجَرَّاحِ

Anas bin Malik relates that the Messenger of Allah said, “The most merciful of my Ummah towards my Ummah is Abu Bakr; the most severe of them in the religion of Allah is ‘Umar; the most modest of them is ‘Uthman; the best judge among them is ‘Ali ibn Abu Talib; the most knowledgeable of them concerning the Book of Allah is Ubay ibn Ka’b; the most knowledgeable of them concerning the permissible and the prohibited is Mu’adh ibn Jabal; and the most knowledgeable of them concerning the laws of inheritance is Zaid ibn Thabit. Indeed, for every Ummah there is a trustworthy person and the trustworthy person of this Ummah is Abu ‘Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah.
