IBNA-The first edition of the book ‘Companions of Prophet Mohammad’ on the men close to the prophet of Islam by Khaled Muhammad Khaled, translated form Arabic to Persian is released by Ehsan publication.
According to IBNA
correspondent, the first edition of this book translated by Kewmars Yousefi is published in 60 sections, a preface and two introductions written by the author and Persian translator.
In a part of the author’s introduction we read: “This book, which was previously published in five volumes, is now released in just a single volume and features the story of sixty companions of the Prophet (PBUH). As stated in the final part of the book, these sixty people are the representatives of thousands of their fellow brothers who were living in the Prophet’s time, and believed in him and assisted him. Their image is a reflection of all the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) and the faith, stability, championship and friendship expressed by them toward the Prophet.”
Salman-e Farsi (salman the Persian)
, one of the closest companions of the Prophet (PBUH) was a man from the land of Persia. On page 62 of the book we read this about him: “Listening to the hardship and bitterness of life of some of the Prophet’s companions like Abu Bakr Seddiq
and Umar Ibn al-Khattab
, some of us think that the nature of life in Arabia was like this, as the Arabs living there sought their pleasure in simplicity. However, we are now faced with a man from Iran, the land of pleasure, blessing and civilization. He did not belong to the poor of the society, but was from the privileged class. Now, the question is what made him give up all his wealth and opulence and live a thrifty life as he did?”
The first Persian edition of the book ‘Men around the Prophet’ was published in 2,000 copies, in 539 pages.
