“Abu Musa (radiallaahu ‘anhu) narrated:

Two of my cousins and I entered the apartment of the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). One of them said: Messenger of Allaah, appoint us rulers of some lands that the Almighty and Glorious Allaah has entrusted to your care. The other also said something similar. Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: ”We do not appoint to this position one who asks for it nor anyone who is covetous for the same.” [Saheeh Muslim]
