610 – 632: Muhammad's era
He was an Ansar [1].
In the Itqan, Al-Suyuti discussed the number of witnesses and quoted the following from Ibn Ashta's Kitab al-Masahif:
A narration reports:
“ The people would come to Zaid ibn Thabit and he would only write a verse from two upright witnesses. Even though the end of Sura al-Baraa was not found except with Khuzaima ibn Thabit, he said: Write it, for God's messenger, peace and blessings be upon him, made his testimony as the testimony of two men. So it was written, even though Umar brought the verse of stoning and it was not written because he was alone [2].

He is among those on whose authority the Hadith of the pond of Khumm was reported [3].
632 – 634: Abu Bakr's era
