The people said (to Umar), “O chief of the believers! Appoint a successor.” Umar said, “I do not find anyone more suitable for the job than the following persons or group whom Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) had been pleased with before he died.”
Then Umar mentioned: “Ali, Uthman, AzZubair, Talha, Sad and Abdur-Rahman (bin Auf)”
Then Umar said, “Abdullah bin Umar will be a witness to you, but he will have no share in the rule. His being a witness will compensate him for not sharing the right of ruling.

The choice is sometimes difficult because they are all human and had done their best to learn and teach what they believe was proper Fiqh. Due to that we say thet the safest School is the one in closest adherance to the Quran and Hadith.
I am a Hanbali in Fiqh, but the Dhahiri “Zahiri” school of thought, which was founded by Imam Abu Dawoud Alasfahany (202 A.H) which was adopted and revised by Imam Ali Bin Hazm (348 A.H) of Andalusia is the closest to the literal interpretation of the Ahadith. … More AL-MUHALLA المحلى IBN HAZM – RULINGS ONLY – ZAHIRI FIQH
In the Hadīth of Ibn ‘Abbās (r) that the Messenger of Allāh (sallallāhu’alayhi wasallam) said:
“There are no days in which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than these days.”
Included in the general wording of the statement: ‘good deeds’ is: fasting; fasting is among the best of deeds, and Allāh has singled out for Himself (to reward). So fasting all nine days is a Sunnah, as the general statement of the Hadīth indicates, and as is the view of the majority of scholars. … More RULINGS ON THE FIRST 10 DAYS OF DHUL-HIJJAH
