Topic - Hunain ibn Ishaq or al-Mutadibih
Posted: 01 Jul 2010 at 08:18 By Zagros
Interestingly, according to wiki ibn Ishaq had mastered the Persian language, along with Greek.

Even for a Persian (I am referring to Mutadibih), it was a rarity to call work by the native tongue as opposed to Arabic, as you well know.  So I find it intriguing.  Official documents, research everything was in Arabic because it was the language of the Caliphate. That's the most practical explanation.
