Anas ibn Malik
Anas ibn Malik, a member of the Najjar clan of the Khazraj tribe of Yathrib, was born ten years before Muhammad's Hijrah. After his father, Malik ibn Nadr, died a non-Muslim, his mother, Umm Sulaim, remarried to a new convert, Abu Talha ibn Thabit. Anas's half-brother from this marriage was Abdullah ibn Abi Talha.
When Muhammad arrived in Medina in 622, Anas's mother presented him to her prophet as a servant.
He is one of the major narrators of Hadith, and like all of the Sahaba, and is considered trustworthy.
