A Plethora of Hadeeth from Abu Hurayrah

Why are there so many narrations from Abu Hurayrah?

Narrated Abu Hurayrah radhiAllaahu anh: People say that I have narrated many ahadeeth. Had it not been for two ayaat in the Qur’aan, I would not have narrated a single Hadeeth, and the ayaat are:

“إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْتُمُونَ مَا أَنزَلْنَا مِنَ الْبَيِّنَاتِ وَالْهُدَىٰ مِن بَعْدِ مَا بَيَّنَّاهُ لِلنَّاسِ فِي الْكِتَابِ ۙ أُولَٰئِكَ يَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّاعِنُونَ … إِلَّا الَّذِينَ تَابُوا وَأَصْلَحُوا وَبَيَّنُوا فَأُولَٰئِكَ أَتُوبُ عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ وَأَنَا التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ

Indeed, those who conceal what We sent down of clear proofs and guidance after We made it clear for the people in the Scripture – those are cursed by Allaah and cursed by those who curse … Except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident [what they concealed]. Those – I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.” [Soorah al-Baqarah (2):159-160)] 

And no doubt our Muhaajir (emigrant) brothers used to be busy in the market with their business and our Ansaari brothers used to be busy with their property.

But I (Abu Hurayrah) used to stick to Allaah’s Messenger (salAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) contented with what will fill my stomach and I used to attend that which they used not to attend and I used to memorize that which they used not to memorize.

[Saheeh al-Bukhaaree: Kitaab al-Ilm]
