Asalaamualaykum guys. This information was provided to me by Bolani Muslim.

The Imams in this case lived in Medina and these "companions" lived in Kufa. I thought narrating so many hadiths from the Imams despite barely seeing them was quite suspect and puts a big question mark over them. How in the world did they narrate so much when they didn't even spend much of their lives in the company of the imams? Shias love to attack Abu Hureyra (ra), it's about time we educate them about this.

1. Aban bin Taghlib was a "companion" of the imams. He met Imam al-Sajjad, Imam Muhammad al-Baqir, and Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq. He narrated some 30,000 hadith from Ja'far al-Sadiq despite him living in Kufa and Ja'far al-Sadiq living in Medina.

He had the opportunity to meet Imam al-Sajjad (a), Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a), and Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (a). It is said that he narrated about 30,000 hadiths from Imam al-Sadiq (a).



2. Jabin bin Yazid al-Ju'fi was also a "companion" of the imams. He was a companion of Imam Muhammad al-Baqir, and Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq. He narrated some 70,000 hadith from Muhammed al-Baqir despite him living in kufa and Muhammed al-Baqir in Medina.

Imam al-Baqir (a) paid particular attention to hadiths (or traditions) from the Prophet (s) to the extent that Jabir b. Yazid al-Ju'fi narrated 70,000 traditions from the noble Prophet (s) from him (a). Also, Aban b. Taghlib and other students of Imam al-Baqir (a) narrated a great number of this tremendous legacy from the Imam (a).

3. Muhammed bin Muslim al-Thaqifi was another companion, he was a companion of Imam Muhammad al-Baqir, Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq and Imam al-Kazim. He narrated 30,000 hadith from Muhammed al-Baqir and 16,000 hadith from Ja'far al-Sadiq despite him again being from Kufa and they living Medina. However he did allegedly study for 4 years from Muhammed al-Baqir.

He heard thirty-thousand hadiths from Imam al-Baqir (a) and sixteen thousand hadiths from Imam al-Sadiq (a).

Most of the companions of Imam Al-Baqir and Imam Al-Sadiq were either unknown or from Kufa, according to shia rijal.

In Hisham ibn Hakam's bio it states that he met Imam Jafar for the first time, and asked him 500 questions in that meeting.

Salaam alaykum wa rahmatullah,

And they have the audacity to mock Abu Hurayrah (ra) for narrating about 2700 ahaadith (repeats or duplicates excluded) who spent nearly 3 years with the Holy Prophet (saw).  If we assume that he spent exactly three years with the Holy Prophet (saw) and round every year to 300 days (as opposed to 365 or 365 minus 11 in the case of lunar calendar), Abu Hurayrah (ra) spent 900 days with the Holy Prophet (saw) and narrated 2700 ahaadith.  That boils down to three ahaadith every day which is a lot more rational and logically acceptable than 30,000 or 70,000.
