Anas bin Malik is the third of the companions who narrated a lot of hadiths, he narrated as many as 2,286 hadiths.
Anas was (Khadam) a trusted servant of the Messenger of Allah, when he was 10 years old, his mother Umm Sulaiman took him to the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, to serve. His father's name is Malik bin an-Nadlr. The Prophet often joked with Anas bin Malik, and the Prophet himself did not behave like a master to his servant.
Anas himself once said: "The Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, never reprimanded what I did, nor did he ever ask about something I did not do, but he always said Masya'allah kan wa ma lam yasya".
Anas bin Malik did not fight in the great Badr war, because he was still very young. But he participated in many other wars after that. When Abu Bakr asked for Umar's opinion regarding the appointment of Anas bin Malik as an employee in Bahrain, Umar praised him: "He is an intelligent young man who can read and write, and has also been associated with the Prophet for a long time."
Meanwhile, Abu Hurairah's comment about him: "I have never seen anyone else whose prayers resemble the Messenger of Allah except Ibnu Sulaiman (Anas bin Malik)."
Ibn Sirin said: "He (Anas) prayed best both at home and when traveling."
On the last day of his life, Anas moved to Basrah. Others said his move was due to Ibn al-Asy'ats' slander which prompted Hajjaj to threaten him. So there was no other way for Anas bin Malik to move to Basrah, making him the only friend of the Prophet there.
That is why the Scholars say that Anas bin Malik was the last friend who died in Basrah., at the time of his death Muwarriq said: " Half of the knowledge has been lost. If there is someone who likes to follow his pleasure when he disagrees with us, we say to him, let's face the person who has heard from Rasulullah Shallallahu alaihi wassalam".
The most authentic Sanad originates from: Malik, from az-Zuhri, and him (Anas bin Malik). Meanwhile, the most Dlaif was from Dawud bin al-Muhabbir, from his father Muhabbir from Abban bin Abi Iyasy from him.
He died in 93 AH at the age of more than one hundred years.
