Salam alaikum 

Which language to learn? 

If one of you would be fluent in Arabic, which language would be the second from these two options? 

Persian is useful for Iran which is somehow heart of shiite Islam.

and also spoken in Afghanistan and tajikistan.

Turkish is spoken in shiite Azerbaijan 

But also in many parts of Iran 

As well as in Turkmenistan Usbekistan Kazakhstan turkey and other little areas of Russia and China .

With Turkish you can reach more people from balkan to China and from Iran to sibiria. Many Turk languages that make big part of eurasia!

Farsi is very useful to study books

Of Islam!

So in addition to Arabic ,

Would you rather choose Turkish which reaches many Islamic parts including shiite ones? 

Or would you learn Persian where you won't reach that much people like with Turkish but have bigger treasure of literature even though you already  know Arabic? 

Somehow I am attached to Farsi as my second Islamic language but I cannot deny the fact that Turkish are like all over Eurasia 

Which language would you pick and why?

Partially true. Most of the turkic languages are not very mutually intelligible with Turkish (except Turkish and Azeri).

I found this chart:

I would personally choose Farsi for this reason alone.

But you could learn both languages too if you want. One after the other.

Well it's a good point 

So what would you advise? 

Salam learn Farsi to read sources & books & understand matters & learn Turkish to talk about religion between a large groups because we don't have enough debaters in Turkish & majority of Turkish Muslims are Sunnis or very traditional Shias that forgot many things so we need people that can read Farsi sources then  explain & write matters in Turkish.
