is narrated that Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) al Pharsi was a slave
of a yahoodi but he had a lot of Respect & Love for our
Beloved Prophet s.a.w. one day he asked his Master to Please
Release him so that he can serve Islam. On hearing this his
Master tauntingly pointed towards on Open Plain and said
I plant Date Seeds in this Ground, And when those Seeds will
Bear Plants and when those plants will become Trees and when
those trees will bear DATES at that time I will release you.
(Meaning Never in the Near Future)
This is the same ground in which RasoolAllah s.a.w. planted
the Date seeds and Garden of Date Trees sprung up in One Night.
The Saudi Government later took the trees and seeds and planted
it somewhere else and cleared this garden as many people used
to come and offer prayers here and take the Leaves and dates
from the Tree as Tabarruk
Salamn Al Pharsi was very heartbroken and he went to Our Beloved
Prophet s.a.w. and narrated the whole incident to this our
Beloved Prophet s.a.w. said Ok we agree to his condition.
Same night Aaqa s.a.w. went with some sahabis to that Ground
which was shown by the Yahoodi, Our Beloved Prophet s.a.w.
Ate some dates and burried the seeds in the Ground and the
Sahabis Watered that seed.
buring and watering the Blessed seeds which came outof the
Mouth of our Beloved Prophet s.a.w. the Aaqa and Sahabis returned
o Allam...No one know how long was that Night but in the Morning
when the Yahoodi Master of Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) came out
he saw the Ground full with Date Tress laden with DATES. He
was shocked in One Night how could a Virgin Land get converted
to a Date Garden and Each tree was Full of Dates and these
were No ordinary dates.
These were AJWAA dates. Thats how AJWAA Dates came into Origin
and That is why they are so blessed in mentioned in Hadees
Master of Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) had no choice but to Release
Hazrat Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) and since then Hazrat Hazrat

more about Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) Al Pharsi.
Place : Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) the Persian was born with
the Persian name Rouzbeh, either in the city of Kazerun in Fars
Province, or Isfahan in Isfahan Province, Iran.
of the Trench : It was Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.)
who came up with the idea of digging a great trench around the
city of Medina to defend the city and its people from the army
of 10,000 non-Muslims of Arabia. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) and his companions
agreed and accepted Salman's plan because it was safer and there
would be a better chance that the non-Muslim army of Arabia
would have a large number of casualties. Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.)
came up with the idea from remembering the same thing happening
in Persia; when the Persians heard about, and feared an attack
led by their enemies coming to their territory, they digging
a trench around them to be safe. So during the Battle of the
Trench, what the Muslims had expected had occurred.
sources gather him with the Muhajirun, other sources narrate
that during the Battle of the Trench, one of Muhajirun stated
"Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) is one of us, Muhajireen",
but was challenged by the Muslims of Medina known in Arabic
as the Ansar. A lively argument began between the two groups,
each of them claiming that Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) belonged to
their group, and not to the other group. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) arrived on
the scene, and heard the argument. He was amused by the claims
but he soon put an end to their argument by saying: "Hazrat
Salman (r.d.a.) is neither Muhajir nor Ansar. He is one of us.
He is one of the People of the House, ahl al-Bayt."
Salman (r.d.a.)'s Nightmare : Shortly
before his death, Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) dreamed that the Islamic
prophet Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) told him that he will die on Friday in Ctesiphon.
era : Hazrat
Salman (r.d.a.) the Persian died during the reign of the third
Caliph, Uthman ibn Affan. He died at the age of 78. He is buried
in Ctesiphon, Al-Mada'in in present-day Iraq. Though that city
fell into abandon, there is still a town there named after him,

: A measure of and scriptual attainment can be gleaned by
the following narrations. (Note that the second narration seems
to indicate that he could read Hebrew.)
Abu Juhaifa : The
Prophet made a bond of brotherhood between Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.)
and Abu Ad-Darda.' Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) paid a visit to Abu
Ad-Darda' and found Um Ad-Darda' dressed in shabby clothes and
asked her why she was in that state. She replied, "Your
brother Abu Ad-Darda' is not interested in (the luxuries of)
this world." In the meantime Abu Ad-Darda' came and prepared
a meal for Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.). Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) requested
Abu Ad-Darda' to eat (with him), but Abu Ad-Darda' said, "I
am fasting." Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) said, "I am not
going to eat unless you eat." So, Abu Ad-Darda' ate(with
Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.)). When it was night and (a part of the
night passed), Abu Ad-Darda' got up (to offer the night prayer),
but Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) told him to sleep and Abu Ad-Darda'
slept. After sometime Abu Ad-Darda' again got up but Hazrat
Salman (r.d.a.) told him to sleep. When it was the last hours
of the night, Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) told him to get up then,
and both of them offered the prayer. Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.)
told Abu Ad-Darda', "Your Lord has a right on you, your
soul has a right on you, and your family has a right on you;
so you should give the rights of all those who has a right on
you." Abu Ad-Darda' came to the Prophet and narrated the
whole story. The Prophet said, "Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.)
has spoken the truth."
Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) al-Farsi: I

before it. So I mentioned it to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him).
He said: The blessing of food consists in ablution before it
and ablution after it.
