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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
There were several people at the time of the Prophet (saws) whose first name was Safwan. If you could kindly give us the full name of the Companion, it would be our honor to send you some information about the Noble Companion as stated in the Books of Muslim History. Here is a list of some of the people whose first name was Safwan at the time of the Holy Prophet (saws):
Safwan bin Ummayyah
Safwan bin Al-Muattal
Safwan bin Abdullah
Safwan bin Yala bin Umaiya
Safwan ibn Muhammad
Safwan bin Salim
Safwan ibn Assal
Safwan ibn Sulaym
Safwan ibn Muhriz
Safwan bin Muhriz Al Mazini
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
