He was the longest lived of the Companions of Rasulullah SAW, having died 93 years after the Hijrah (about: 711 CE).Or  Anas ibn Malik, was the last of the sahaba to die at al-Basrah in 93 AH aged 103.

I turned, it turns out to be Rasulullah SAW and then he holds my shoulder. While smiling he said: “O Anas, whether you have done my request?” I feel guilty, and answer; “Alright, I go now.”
