Abu Usaid Ansar reported: I bear witness to the fact that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: The best settlements of the Ansar are of those of Banu Najjar, then of Banu 'Abu al-Aslihal and then of Banu Harith b. Khazraj, then of Banu Sa'ida and there is in every settlement of the Ansar good. Abu Salama reported that Abu Usaid said: Can I tell a Iie about Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam)? And if I were a liar, I would have started with my tribe Banu Sa'ida. This was conveyed to Sa'd b. 'Ubida and he found (rankling) in his mind and said: We have been left behind (in the sense) that we have been (mentioned) last of the four. He (Sa'd) sid: Saddle my pony so that I should go to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). His nephew saw him and said: Are you going to contradict (the order of) precedence set by Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), whereas Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) has the best knowledge of it? Is it not sufficient for you that you are the fourth amongst the four (best tribes of the Ansar)? So he returned and said: Allaah and His Messenger know best, and he commanded that his pony should be unsaddled.

'Ubida (Allaah be pleased with him).

Abu Huraira reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying in a large gathering of the Muslims: Should I not tell you of the best clans of the Ansar? They said: Allaah's Messenger, (kindly) do this. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger said: That is Banu Abd al-Ashhal. They said: Allaah's Messenger, then next? He said: Banu Najjar. They again said: Allaah's Messenger, then next? He said: Then of Banu Harith b. Khazraj. They then said: Allaah's Messenger, then next? He said. Then of Banu Sa'ida. They said: Allaah's Messenger, then next? He said: There is good in all the clans of the Ansar. It was upon this that Sa'd b. Ubida stood up in annoyance and said: Are we the last of the four as Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) has determined (the order of precedence) of their clans? He decided to talk with Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) on this issue, but the people Of his tribe said to him: Be seated, are you not happy with this that Allaah's Messenger' (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) has mentioned your clan as one of the four (best) clans and those whom he left and did not mention (the order of their precedence) are more than those whom he mentioned? And Sa'd b. 'Ubada dropped the idea of talking to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) (on this issue).
