His father had died, leaving him with only his mother and no other relatives. His name at birth was Abd al-Shams (“Servant of the Sun”). However, as a child, he had a cat and became known as “Abu Hurairah” (which literally means “Father of the Kitten” or more idiomatically “Of the kitten”).

Following the passing of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad, Hazrat Abu Huraira spent the rest of his life teaching hadith in Madina, except for a short period as governor of Bahrain during the reign of Caliph Umar ibn Al-Khattab.
