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

Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continues:

I continued living with this Jewish master in Madinah Munawwarah, attending to his date palms in Banu Quraizah. In the meantime, Allah bestowed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with nubuwwah in Makkah Mukarramah. However, since I was a slave and remained engaged in the service of my master, I had absolutely no knowledge of this.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performed hijrah, coming to Madinah Munawwarah, then on arriving in Quba, he began to stay at the Banu Amr bin Auf clan. At that time, I was at the top of a date palm, engaged in some work, while my master was seated beneath it. It was then that another Jew, who was my master’s cousin (father’s brother’s son) came and began to say to him, “May Allah destroy the Qaylah (the Ansaar)! They are gathering around a man in Quba who has come from Makkah, and they are saying that he is a Nabi and Messenger of Allah.”

Hazrat Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says:

فوالله إن هو إلا أخذتني العرواء حتى ظننت أني سأسقط على صاحبي

“By Allah! (As soon as I heard this) I was overcome by trembling (due to extreme excitement), to the extent that I thought that I would fall (from the top of the date palm) onto my master.”

The good news of the arrival of the Basheer (bringer of glad tidings) and Nazeer (warner) caused Hazrat Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to become so ecstatic and overjoyed, that had Allah Ta‘ala not strengthened his heart (as Allah Ta‘ala had strengthened the heart of the mother of Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam) at the time when she placed him in the river Nile, she would have disclosed it to people that this is her son) he would have certainly fallen from the date palm.

Observing the strange condition that had overcome Hazrat Salmaan ((radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the two Jews looked at him in astonishment. Nevertheless, he brought his heart under control and descended from the palm.

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/422-423)
