 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.

Inner and Outer

حدثنا الحسن بن علان ، ثنا محمد بن هارون بن بدينا ، ثنا محمد بن الصباح ، ثنا جرير عن عطاء بن السائب ، عن أبي البختري ، عن سلمان ، قال :لكل امرئ جواني وبراني ، فمن يصلح جوانيه يصلح الله برانيه ، ومن يفسد جوانيه يفسد الله برانيه

Salman al Farsi (رضي الله عنه) said, “Every human being has two sides, inner and outer. Whoever corrects his inner disposition, Allah will correct his outer disposition. Whoever corrupts his inner being (with sins), Allah will corrupt his outer being.”

Allâh makes the illness of a believer an expiation…

leave a comment »

Salmân Al-Fârsî – Allâh be pleased with him – once visited a sick friend. When he entered upon him he said:

Have glad tidings, for verily Allâh makes the illness of a believer an expiation [for his sins] and a cause of being pleased, whereas the illness of a sinner is like a camel that has been tied by its owners, thenreleased by them: it knows not why it was tied up nor why it was released.

إن كل نبي أعطي سبعة نجباء رفقاء – أو قال : رقباء – وأعطيت أنا أربعة عشر قلنا : من هم ؟ قال : أنا وابناي ، وجعفر ، وحمزة ، وأبو بكر ، وعمر ، ومصعب بن عمير ، وبلال ، وسلمان ، وعمار ، والمقداد ، وحذيفة ، وعبد الله بن مسعود

Sayyidina Ali ibn Abu Talib reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said,

“Every Prophet is given seven eminent men who are his friends, but I am given fourteen.”

They asked him,

“Who are they?”

He said,

“I and my two sons and Ja’far, Hamzah, Abu Bakr, Umar, Mus’ab ibn Umayr, Bilal, Salman, Ammar, Miqdad, Hudhayfah and Abdullah ibn Masud.
