(Continuing the Incident of Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] embracing Islam)

Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continues:

As we reached the valley of Qura, the caravan I was traveling with betrayed me by enslaving me and selling me to a Jew. After coming with him (to his house), I saw a number of date palms and thought to myself that this was perhaps the same land (i.e. the same land of date palms which the aalim of Umooriyyah had mentioned will be the place to which the final Nabi will perform hijrah).

However, I was still not completely convinced (that this was the same land), when another Jew from Banu Quraizah approached him (my master) and purchased me from him. He then brought me to Madinah Munawwarah. The moment I set foot in Madinah, I realized that it matched the description which my companion (i.e. the aalim in Umooriyyah) had given, and I was convinced that this is the very same city which was previously described to me.

It appears in Saheeh Bukhaari that Hazrat Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says, “In this manner, I was purchased and sold more than ten times.” (The people continued to sell him to one another for a few dirhams as they had no interest in him, however nobody realized his true value.)

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/422)
