    Abu Hurayrah

    Companion of Muhammad and important transmitter of hadith. Nickname (meaning “father of the little female cat”) given to him by Muhammad due to his affection for his cat. Converted from sun worship to Islam at age thirty. Scholars have noted that hadith he transmitted tended to restrict rights of women and refer to their capacity to cause ritual uncleanliness, leaving them outside the political sphere and often confining them to the home. His hadith figure prominently in prestigious religious texts such as Sahih al-Bukhari despite the fact that they sometimes disagree with hadith transmitted by Muhammad's wife Aishah , particularly on purification rituals.
