Qays bin Amr bin Sahl bin Tha’labah al-Ansaari al-Madani




Name:

قيس بن عمرو بن سهل بن ثعلبة الأنصارى المدنى ( جد يحيى بن سعيد الأنصارى و أخويه )

Qays bin Amr bin Sahl bin Tha’labah al-Ansaari al-Madani (the grandfather of Yahya bin Sa’eed al-Ansaari and his Brother)

Some people have called him “Qays bin Sahl” as mentioned by Ibn Mandah and Abu Nu’aym as if he is attributed towards his grandfather. And it is said he is “Qays bin Qahd” as said by Mus’ab az-Zubayree which is narrated by Ibn Abi Haatim and others from him. Ibn Abi Khaythamah has mistaken in this issue. What seems more authentic is that Qays bin Qahd and Qays bin Amr bin Sahl are two different personalities. That is why, Imaam Bukhaari has differentiated between the two [See, Taareekh al-Kabeer lil Bukhaari (7/142)]
[See, Al-Isaabah by Ibn Hajar (5/491)]
