Hi All,
 
New to the forum but I have been following it for a couple years now. Great discussions. I have a question regarding Salman Farsi. I have heard from various sources they he was one of the five responsible for writing up the Koran (Omar, Abu Bakr, Osman etc). However, I have not been able to find substantial data to back that claim up. So I thought perhaps one of the scholars from this site could help out.
I believe that someone had to help Mohammed write the Koran since he was illiterate.
Thanks!

I have never heard of Salman al Farsi being involved as a scribe, although it may be possible. I'm fairly sure he was literate.

Zayd bin Thabit is usually given the credit for the majority of the scribing.
