Dear Brother

Answer:

 

Which companion was chief of persians

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth.  If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause.  We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire.  Ameen.

 

Your Question: my Question is who is the sahabi titled as "Cheif of Persians" ??

To the best of our knowledge, we have not come across any narration in the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) whereby the Prophet (saws) himself declared one amongst his noble companions as the ‘Chief of Persians’. 

 

The most famous amongst the close companions of the Prophet (saws) who was from the land of Persia was Hadrat Salman al-Farsi (r.a.), regarding whom the Messenger of Allah (saws) has declared:

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 6225        Narrated by Anas ibn Malik

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Paradise is desirous of three people: Ali (ibn Abi Talib (r.a.)), Ammar (bin Yasser (r.a.)) and Salman (al-Farsi (r.a.))."

 

If by ‘Chief of Persians’ you meant to enquire the name of the Muslim Commander under whose expedition Iran (or old name Faris) was conquered and brought under Muslim rule, then the name of that Commander was the noble companion of the Prophet (saws), Hadrat Saad ibn Abi Waqqas (r.a.).

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
