His name is Muslim ibn Khalid Az-Zanji. He is an imam, mufti, and faqih of Mecca. He is the student of Imam Muhammad ibn Juraji, the grandson of Atha’ ibn Abi Rabah, and great grandson of Ibnu ‘Abbas radhiyallahu ‘anhuma.
One day, he saw a boy with a good appearance that attracted his heart. His eyes sharp . His face shone. That boy look mumbled himself. And you know, that boy was memorizing the beautiful verses of Arab poetry.
“Would you like to spell what are you trying to memorize, little boy?”
That boy hummed soon. His spelled so eloquently. His grammar is neat. His diction is amazing and melodious voice.

After he investigated that boy, Muslim ibn Khalid knew that orphan offspring derived from Muthalib ibn ‘Abdi Manaf. And Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam is a great grandson from Hasyim ibn ‘Abdi Manaf, the older brother of Muthalib. It proves that this boy is blue-blooded of Qurayshi.

“I am learning language, nahwu and its sharaf and memorizing of Arab poetry”
“You know son” said Muslim, “It will great if your eloquent spell and melodious voice is used to keep Sunnah Rasulullah, to send the law of sharia to human, and to teach them fiqh so that they able to understand this dien”
