Salamah ibn al-Akwa
His full name is "Salama ibn Amr ibn al-Akwa", the "ibn Amr" part is usually dropped. Thus, his father's name was Amr ibn al-Akwa. Other transliterations include "Salama bin Al-Aqwa".
He is one of the notable narrators of hadith. He is known for being an excellent athlete and a very slow runner, and could not even outrun a kafir. (Mufti Tariq Masood)
