Asalam Alaikum


From "Companions of The Prophet", Vol.1, By Abdul Wahid Hamid

Talking about Salman al-Mohammadi (al Farsi) -

As a scholar, Salman was noted for his vast knowledge and wisdom. Ali (a.s) said of him that he was like Luqman the Wise. And Ka'b al-Ahbar said: "Salman is stuffed with knowledge and wisdom like an ocean that does not dry up." Salman had a knowledge of both the Christian scriptures and the Qur'an in addition to his earlier knowledge of the Zoroastrian religion. Salman in fact translated parts of the Qur'an into Persian during the life-time of the Prophet. He was thus the first person to translate the Qur'an into a foreign language.


If Ali is saying Salman is wise like Luqman, then why didn't he say he was wise like another prophet? Why did he choose Luqman in this saying? It is because Luqman and Salman are both wise men, and not prophets.

As far as the Quran goes, Luqman was not a prophet. The Quran says that Allah gave him wisdom [31:12]

Nowhere in the Quran though does it say he received revelation.
