Abu Ayyub al-Ansari

Khālid b. Zayd b. Kulayb b. al-Najjār (Arabic:خالد بن زید بن کُلَیب بن النجّار) known as Abū Ayyūb al-Anṣārī (Arabic: أبو أيوب الأنصاري) (d. 52/672) was among the companions of the Prophet (s) and Imam Ali (a). He participated in the Second Pledge of al-'Aqaba and the Prophet (s) lived in his house after he (s) immigrated to Medina. Abu Ayyub participated in the battles of the time of the Prophet (s) and Imam Ali (a). After death of 'Uthman, Abu Ayyub was among the first people who gave allegiance to Imam Ali (a). Sunni scholars regard him as reliable, but Shi'a scholars have sufficed to praising him.
