Tamim Dari is a person who narrates an event of meeting with Dajjal, our Al-Sunnat brothers rely on that Haidth and share concept of Dajjal relying on that event which is explained by Tamim Dari. I just wanted to ask how much reliable is Tamim Dari in Shia's point of view. Please if some one has his background before converting to Islam please do share it.

Tamīm b. Aws b. Khārija al-Dārī (Arabic: تميم بن أوس بن خارجة الداري, d. 40/660-61) known as Tamīm al-Dārī (Arabic: تميم الداري) was a companion of Prophet Muhammad (s). He was one of the pioneers in narrating stories in the history of Islam.

Tamim was a Christian man who converted to Islam in Sanat al-Wufud. He remained in Medina during the caliphate of the first three caliphs and then migrated to Palestine. Tamim was admired and respected by the first three caliphs, especially by 'Umar b. al-Khattab. He was the first person who was allowed by the second caliph to narrate stories for Muslims in Masjid al-Nabawi.

Sunni Muslims believe Tamim was among the virtuous companions of the Prophet (s) but some Shi'a researchers believe Tamim al-Dari, Ka'b al-Ahbar and Wahb b. Munabbih were first ones who brought Isra'iliyyat into Islamic culture. In addition, his name was not mentioned among the companions of Ali b. Abi Talib (a). He moved to Syria after the murder of 'Uthman b. 'Affan, which indicates that he was not a supporter of Imam Ali (a).
