Salaf in the Sunnah
No doubt from the clearest of the texts of the sunnah mentioning the term salaf is an authentic hadeeth wherein the prophet โ€“ Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam โ€“ referred to himself as a blessed salaf for his daughter and โ€“ it follows โ€“ the rest of the Ummah in general

The messenger โ€“ Sallallahu alaihi was Sallam while he was ill prior to him passing away, Fatimah His daughter โ€“ Radhiyallahu anhaa โ€“ came to his bedside and the messenger of Allah whispered to her twice. When he did so in the first instance she began to weep, then when he whispered on the second occasion she began to laugh. Aisha โ€“ Radhiyallahu anhaa asked her about that and Fatima refused to divulge the secret that messenger gave to her that brought about this weeping and laughter. After the death of the messenger โ€“ Sallallahu alahi Was Salam she informed her that now I will inform you so she said:

ยซ ุฃูŽู†ูŽู‘ ุฌูุจู’ุฑููŠู„ูŽ ูƒูŽุงู†ูŽ ูŠูุนูŽุงุฑูุถูู‡ู ุงู„ู’ู‚ูุฑู’ุขู†ูŽ ููู‰ ูƒูู„ูู‘ ุณูŽู†ูŽุฉู ู…ูŽุฑูŽู‘ุฉู‹ ูˆูŽุฅูู†ูŽู‘ู‡ู ุนูŽุงุฑูŽุถูŽู‡ู ุงู„ุขู†ูŽ ู…ูŽุฑูŽู‘ุชูŽูŠู’ู†ู ูˆูŽุฅูู†ูู‘ู‰ ู„ุงูŽ ุฃูุฑูŽู‰ ุงู„ุฃูŽุฌูŽู„ูŽ ุฅูู„ุงูŽู‘ ู‚ูŽุฏู ุงู‚ู’ุชูŽุฑูŽุจูŽ ููŽุงุชูŽู‘ู‚ูู‰ ุงู„ู„ูŽู‘ู‡ูŽ ูˆูŽุงุตู’ุจูุฑูู‰ ููŽุฅูู†ูŽู‘ู‡ู

The messenger โ€“ Sallallahu alaihi wa Salam โ€“ said: Indeed Jibreel used to listen to my recitation of the Qurโ€™aan once a year, and he has now (i.e. this year) done so twice, and i do not see except that my appointed time is close, so fear Allah and be patient for indeed I am a blessed โ€˜salafโ€™ (Predecessor) for youโ€
