Anas ibn Malik
Anas ibn Malik, a member of the Najjar clan of the Khazraj tribe of Yathrib, was born ten years before the Prophet 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 the prophet arrived in Medina in 622, Anas's mother presented him to the prophet as a servant.
He is one of the major narrators of Hadith, and like all of the Sahaba, and is considered trustworthy.
The mosque and shrine of Anas Ibn Malik is located at Basra, Iraq. The grave of Anas Ibn Malik is a simple cenotaph. However, the shrine was destroyed with explosive devices. Despite the fact that the mosque and shrine is heavily damaged and walls stained with vandalism, the complex is still a popular place of visit by Sunni Muslims.
