Abdus Salam resp. Abd us-Sálam bol pakistanský teoretický fyzik a astrofyzik.

V roku 1979 dostal spolu s Sheldonom Glashowom a Stevenom Weinbergom, ako prvý Pakistanec a moslim, Nobelovu cenu za fyziku za model zjednocujúci slabé a elektromagnetické interakcie a predpoveď existencie neutrálnych prúdov.

„This in effect is, the faith of all physicists; the deeper we seek, the more is our wonder excited, the more is the dazzlement for our gaze.“

—  Abdus Salam

Speech at the Nobel Banquet (10 December 1979) http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1979/salam-speech.html.
Kontext: In the Holy Book of Islam, Allah says:

"Thou seest not, in the creation of the All-merciful any imperfection, Return thy gaze, seest thou any fissure. Then Return thy gaze, again and again. Thy gaze, Comes back to thee dazzled, aweary."

This in effect is, the faith of all physicists; the deeper we seek, the more is our wonder excited, the more is the dazzlement for our gaze.

„The Holy Quran enjoins us to reflect on the verities of Allah’s created laws of nature; however, that our generation has been privileged to glimpse a part of His design is a bounty and a grace for which I render thanks with a humble heart.“

—  Abdus Salam
