A follow up query on the Hadith regarding welcoming students

Question

I have seen your answer here regarding the Hadith on welcoming students of knowledge.

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“People from the East will come to you to seek knowledge [of Din]. When they come to you, treat them well. Abu Harun ‘Abdi (rahimahullah), says: ‘Whenever Abu Sa’id (radiyallahu ‘anhu) would see us, he would say: ‘Welcome to those about whom Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advised us.'”

Are these words correct, ‘People from the East’?
