Question

AA, in a book I am reading about Salman Al-Farisi, it says he was the first one to translate the Quran into Persian. Is this true? JAK

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

We have not come across any evidence in the books of the scholars  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them proving that Salmaan Al-Faarisi  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him was the first person to translate the Quran into Persian. 

Allaah Knows best.
