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
It 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
When 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)
Hazart 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.
The 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.
After buring and watering the Blessed seeds which came outof the Mouth of our Beloved Prophet s.a.w. the Aaqa and Sahabis returned back home..
Allah 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 also.
Hence the Yahoodi Master of Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) had no choice but to Release Hazrat Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) and since then Hazrat Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) Al Pharsi dedicated his life to Serving Islam
Know more about Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) Al Pharsi.
Birth 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.
Battle 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.
While some 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."
Hazrat 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.
Uthman's 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, Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) Pak.
A hadith : 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.)
Narrated 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."
Narrated Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.) al-Farsi: I read in the Torah that the blessing of food consists in ablution 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.
Legacy : His shrine at Al-Mada'in was attacked on February 25 and 26, 2006, and seems to have been destroyed in the violence following the destruction of the Al-Askari Mosque.
His grave is shown also in Lod (Lydda), Palestine/Israel, now inside the modern quarter called Ramat Eshkol.
Works : He translated part of the Qur'an into Persian, thus becoming the first person to interpret the Qur'an into a foreign language.
Quotation : I am Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.), the son of Islam from the children of Adam.
—Hazrat Salman (r.d.a.), Companions of The Prophet, Vol.1, by: Abdul Wahid Hamid
Sufi view: Sufis also have a very favourable view of him; in the Oveyssi-Shahmaghsoudi order and Naqshbandi order, Salman is the third person in the spiritual chain connecting devotees with Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.).
