Salman Farsi acted as governor for Umar Farooq

SALMAN AL-FARISI took part in Sayyiduna ‘Umar’s Persian campaign and played a crucial role in the conquest of Mada’in (“al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah” vol. 5 pp. 135-140). He had also acted as governor of Mada’in for Sayyiduna ‘Umar (“al-Isabah” vol. 3 p. 113)

In shiite book, Tuhfa Abbasi we read

Salman was appointed a the governor of Mada’in during the caliphate of ‘Umar ibn Khattab and remained in that position until his death.

Tuḥfah yi-ʻAbbāsī:
Mohammad Hassan Faghfoory, Najīb al-Dīn Riḍā Tabrīzī – Page 30

Mulla Baqir Majlisi also writes in his book that Salman Farsi acted as governor of Umar Farooq in Madain, which was the capital of Iran at that time.

See Hayat-ul-Qulub:Vol.2,P.780

Similarly we read in Talkhees al-Shafi

تولى سلمان لعمر المدائن

Salman acted as governor for Umar in Madain

Talkhees al-Shafi , p. 402
