also, the afore-mentioned book narrates (in the seventh chapter) from the book «al-fatan» of hafez abu abdullah na'eem-ibn-hemaad which in turn narrates from ishaaq-ibn-yahya-ibn-thalha who narrates from ta'oos who said: «omar ibn-khattab was on death-bed and bidding farewell to his family members. he then said: 'i do not know of any treasure which i can bestow. the house, and all that it contains from wealth and weapons should be spent in the way of Allah.
then ali (may Allah be satisfied with him) said: 'o amir ul-momineen, leave aside this matter because you are not the owner of (this) wealth. rather its owner is a young man from the tribe of quraish who shall, at the end of time distribute it in the way of Allah.(23)

in madarek we read: quraish is a mighty beast which plays with the ships and except for fire it cannot be repulsed by any other thing. its diminutive form is due to reverence.'
some others say: the reason they were called as quraish was that the leader of their tribe ibn-yakhled ghalib-ibn-fahr was named as quraish. thus it was said: the tribe of quraish came; the tribe of quraish went and in this way they became famous by this name.
