 كنا جلوسا عند النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم . إذ نزلت عليه سورة الجمعة . فلما قرأ : { وآخرين منهم لما يلحقوا بهم } [ 62 / الجمعة / 3 ]قال رجل : من هؤلاء ؟ يا رسول الله ! فلم يراجعه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم . حتى سأله مرة أو مرتين أو ثلاثا . قال وفينا سلمان الفارسي . قالفوضع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يده على سلمان ، ثم قال ” لو كان الإيمان عند الثريا ، لناله رجال من هؤلاء “الثُّرَيَّا لَنَالَهُ رِجَالٌ مِنْ هَؤُلَاءِ

Abu Huraira  (رضي الله عنه) reported: We were sitting in the company of Allah’s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وسلم) when Sura al−Jumu’a was revealed to him and when he recited (these words):” Others from amongst them who have not yet joined them,” a person amongst them (those who were sitting there) said: Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم)! who are they?  But Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) made no reply, until he questioned him once, twice or thrice. And there was amongst us Salman the Persian  (رضي الله عنه). The Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) placed his hand on Salman  (رضي الله عنه) and then said: Even if faith were near the Pleiades, a man from amongst these would surely find it.

[Sahih Muslim]
