Can someone explain why you wouldn't have 7. Qxa1?

Someone said that already.

Thanks, I didn't see that before I posted, but I did notice that pretty quickly after reading the following posts
Oh i get it now-a stalemate! Ofcourse:)
why didn't black play kxb6?
why like that
Why not 7. Qh2+?
Why not h2 with the FIRST move? Looks to accomplish the same end only quicker.
axb and both sides get a queen and black has an extra pawn.
Why did black give up his queen?
Had seen this puzzle long time ago :)

Woah. Tough tough tough...
