First Translator of the Quraan

As a scholar, Salman may Allah be pleased with herwas noted for his vast knowledge and wisdom. Ali may Allah be pleased with her said of him that he was like Luqman the Wise. And Kab al-Ahbar said: ‘Salman is bursting with knowledge and wisdom. He is an ocean that does not dry up.’ Salman may Allah be pleased with her had knowledge of both the Christian scripture and the Quraan in addition to his earlier knowledge of the Zoroastrian religion. Salman may Allah be pleased with her in fact translated parts of the Quraan into Persian during the lifetime of the Prophet peace and blessing be upon him. He was thus the first person to translate the Quraan into a foreign language.
