Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I would like to know how long did Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) spend with the Prophet? I have come in contact with people who say that he narrated a lot of Hadiths, although others claim that he did not manage to do so since he spent a very short time with the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). I want to get a clarification regarding this. Jazakum Allah khayran.
