“You all say that Abu Hurayrah reports many narrations from the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and you say, why do the Muhaajireen and Ansaar not report as much as Abu Hurayrah does? My brothers from the Muhaajireen were busy with their transactions in the markets, while I constantly accompanied the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, while being content with whatever filled my stomach. I would be present when they were not, and memorize when they would forget. My brothers among the Ansaar were busy with their wealth, and I was a poor man from Ahl As-Suffah, and would remember when they forget.”

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, used to  commend him for his keenness on learning:

Abu Hurayrah reported that he once said

“O Messenger of Allah, who will be happiest with your intercession on the Day of Resurrection?” The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, responded: “O Abu Hurayrah, I thought that none would ask me this question before you did, because of your keenness in acquiring narrations that I clearly see. The happiest with my intercession on the Day of Resurrection are those that said Laa Ilaaha Illaa Allah, while being sincere in saying that in their hearts.”
