Hammad ibn Salamah Wikipedia
Abu Salma Hammad ibn Salamah ibn Dinar al-Basri (Arabic: حماد بن سلمة بن دينار البصري; died 167 AH/783 CE), the son of Salamah ibn Dinar, was Basra's mufti, a prominent narrator of hadith and one of the earliest grammarians of the Arabic language, who had a great influence on his student, Sibawayh.
He was a client (mawla) of either Banu Tamim or Quraysh. He was from the generation of the Tabi‘ al-Tabi‘in, one of the early generations of Islam.
Ibn Salamah was born roughly in 82AH and died of natural causes in 167AH. In hadith, or recorded statements and actions of the Muslim prophet Muhammad, he was a narrator for later scholars Ibn Jurayj, Sufyan al-Thawri and Abdullah ibn Mubarak. His status was considered by many Muslim scholars to be of the highest rank in regard to biographical evaluation, and he is quoted in both Sahih Muslim and Sahih al-Bukhari, the two most significant collections for Sunni Muslims. He is also considered to have been a teacher of both Abu Dawud at-Tayalisi and Yunus ibn Habib.
Ibn Salamah held a noticeably negative opinion of Muslim jurist Abū Ḥanīfa. He was also critical of Sufism, in its early stages during Ibn Salamah's life.
