Why Salman (RA) was so popular with the Prophet of Islam (PBUH)?

SHAFAQNA – One of the companions of Imam Sadeq (AS) asked: How much I hear that you mention Salman Farsi? Imam (AS) replied: Do not say Salman Farsi, say Salman Mohammadi. Do you know why Salman is so dear to us? I replied: No, I do not know my Imam. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: Salman is dear to us because of three characteristics: 1) He preferred the wishes of Imam Ali (AS) to his own wishes 2) He loved deprived and needy people, and preferred them to rich people 3) he respected knowledge and scholars. Salman was the pious servant of God, he was on the right path and he was a Muslim, and he was not from polytheists (Moshrekin) [1].
