Abu Hurayra’s Short Time with the Prophet

Veronica asked this question on QRAC today:

Abu Hurayrah is considered amongst Sunni’s to have the largest amount of related Hadiths as the Prophet’s Wife Aisha is considered the 2nd. Now, this in itself seems a bit “fishy”, especially that Abu Hurayrah did not know the Prophet for long? I have always held some suspicion of this fact. Does anyone here have any access to some background info on Abu Hurayrah?

Well Abu Hurayra was also the first professional hadith storyteller. The guy used to ask about the Quran just to get a free lunch. This was narrated by Bukhari himself who didn’t have a problem with this deceptive tactic. Strange…
