    Surviving is somewhat ambiguous as most of the knowledge was spread by oral transmission. But we have quotes that some sahaba had some own copies of Quran/hadith etc.. Else if you mean something we still have in hands right now at least as a copy of a copy ... I guess with the exception of the Quran the answer is clearly no! – Medi1Saif Feb 21 '17 at 11:32
  • @Medi1Saif That's also what I thought. But I once saw on the internet that ibn abbas wrote a book about theology. I can't remember where. So, I thought maybe such thing exist. – Sakib Arifin Feb 21 '17 at 14:05
  • There's a tafsir attributed to ibn 'Abbas en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanwir_al-Miqbas – Medi1Saif Feb 21 '17 at 14:18
  • The question indeed looks like it is too broad, but I wonder if there would be a surviving document of those people no matter if it wsa really a manuscript written by them or something transmitted from them. – Medi1Saif Mar 26 '18 at 14:30
