The Six Great Ones from Persia/Iran

If Faith were at (the place of) Ath-Thuraiya (pleiades, the highest star) even then Persians would attain it.

Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.420 Narrated byAbu Huraira
While we were sitting with the Prophet Surat Al-Jumu'a was revealed to him, and when the Verse, "And He (Allah) has sent him (Muhammad) also to other
(Muslims)..."(62.3) was recited by the Prophet, I said, "Who are they, O Allah's Apostle?" The Prophet did not reply till I repeated my question
thrice. At that time, Salman Al-Farisi was with us. So Allah's Apostle put his hand on Salman, saying, "If Faith were at (the place of) Ath-Thuraiya
(pleiades, the highest star), even then (some men or man from these people (i.e. Salman's folk) would attain it."

62:2 He it is Who hath sent among the unlettered ones a messenger of their own, to recite unto them His revelations and to make them grow, and to teach
them the Scripture and Wisdom, though heretofore they were indeed in error manifest,
3 Along with others of them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty,
the Wise.

If you turn back Allah will substitute in your stead another people; then they would not be like you!
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 6244 Narrated byAbuHurayrah
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) recited this verse, "If you turn back He will substitute other people for you and they will not be like you. The
people asked, "Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), who are these people whom Allah has mentioned will be substituted for us if we turn back and will
not be like us?" He struck Salman al-Farisi on the thigh and said, "This man and his people. If the religion were in the Pleiades men from among the
Persians would attain it." Tirmidhi transmitted it.

47:38 Behold ye are those invited to spend (of your substance) in the way of Allah: but among you are some that are niggardly. But any who are niggardly
are so at the expense of their own souls. But Allah is free of all wants and it is ye that are needy. If ye turn back (from the Path) He will
substitute in your stead another people; then they would not be like you!

*The people of Arabia did’nt turned back as they were chosen first for the message but Persians eventually accepted the obvious truth Al Islam.

Major Hadith collectors were Persians [Iranians]
Hadith is part of the Deen of Islam. Six books of Hadith are considered to be the most authentic by the Sunniites and are called 'Sihah Sitta'.The six
editions come under the following titles:

(1)Sahih Bukhari by Muhammad bin Isma'il
(2) Sahih Muslim by Muslim bin Hajaj
(3) Sunan Abu Dawud by Sulaiman bin Al-Ash'ath:
(4) Jami' at-Tirmidhi by Imam Abu Isa Muhammad
(5) Sunah ibn majah by Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Zaid ibne Maja
(6) Sunan an-Nasai by Imam Abdur Rahman Nisai

Technically Hadith[A brief version]
1.It is any word, deed,of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.related by his companions anf practiced by themselves as per prophet's injusctions and
forwarded by trustworthy muslims like imam bukhari,muslim,abu dawud tirmidhi etc.
2.the interepretation of verse,
3.explaining the method(characteristics) of salat,eclipse prayer,quranic prostrations,prostrations of forgetfullness in salat(sahu)
4.setting the criteria for zakat,and fitr in ramadhan.
5 rituals of hajj in details from what to wear to what to recite,
6-details of fasting from what invalidates fasting to what validates fasting,forbidden days of fasting,the nawafil fasting,
7-the method of wuzu in detail,
8-method of bathing,
9-azan proclamation method,
10-burial method(funeral and prayer)
11-code of conduct,eating,what kinds of animals are halal.,slaughtering method,aqiqa
12-drinking,(what kind of containers prohibited for preparing beverage of Dates etc )
13-clothes(what kinds of clothes to wear)
14-the scientific exlanations in detail are also not present in Quran.infact to understand this one has to go beyond hadith and look into various
scientic sources.
15-gold is haraam The approval and physical or moral description attributed to the Prophet,whether truly or supposedly even the moves and rests in the awakening or

"Soon will We show them Our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth),and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the truth." (41:53)

Why is Hadith important.

Tt gives quran commentary,it contains prophesies,code of conduct etc,quran requires commentary as a part of explanation,using historic data to prove
dates and events also gives the reason as to when was Quran revealed,as the verse states
5:101 O ye who believe! ask not questions about things which if made plain to you may cause you trouble. But if ye ask about things when the Qur'an is
being revealed they will be made plain to you: Allah will forgive those: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Forbearing.

.... unnecessary questions are prohibited to ask,but asking questions as to when is Quran being revealed it will be made plain to you.Prophet pbuh
himself did not know when and what time Quranic verses were going to be Revealed,this verse speaks of understanding the causes and situatiuons & circumstances,
as to when was Quran revealed related to those cases.(here Quran being revealed means Quranic verses ,as it took 22
years, 5 months and 14 days for the completion even then no matter how many surah's were revealed it was called Quran.But after the completion of Quran
all chapters constitute Quran,and each individual chapter is considered a part of Quran)

Thus hadith gives context to many Quranic Ayats.

Allah knows best.
