About the Ansari surname

This was the name given to the people who played host to the Prophet Muhammad when he migrated from Mecca to Medina in the 6th century. Since these were people of different clans therefore they had different casts and surnames. But the name given to them by the people who became their guests was Ansari and that is from where this sir name began. But originally these people had different sir names. For example the tribe to which our family is fabled to belong was called Banu Najar. But then they started writing Ansari.
