Yes, it is true and it is very commonly used by Muslims in India and Pakistan.

“it was the Persian dynasties that came later which themselves destroyed the religion and adopted Islam”.

The Zoroastrian converts to Islam and their progeny played a very important role in preserving the sayings of the prophet Muhammad:

Muhammad ibn Isma`il al-Bukhari al-Ju`fi was born 13 Shawwal 194 AH (19 July 810) in the city of Bukhara in Khorasan (in present-day Uzbekistan).[2][6]
His father, Ismail ibn Ibrahim, a scholar of hadith, was a student and associate of Malik ibn Anas. Some Iraqi scholars related hadith narrations from him.[2]
Bukhari’s great-grandfather, al-Mughirah, settled in Bukhara after accepting Islam at the hands of Bukhara’s governor, Yaman al-Ju`fi. As was the custom, he became a mawla of Yaman, and his family continued to carry the nisbah of “al-Ju`fi”.[2][6][7]
Al-Mughirah’s father, Bardizbah, is the earliest known ancestor of Bukhari according to most scholars and historians. He was a Magi (Zoroastrianand died as such. As-Subki is the only scholar to name Bardizbah’s father, who he says was named Bazzabah (Persian: بذذبه‎). Little is known of either Bardizbah or Bazzabah, except that they were Persian and followed the religion of their people.[2] Historians have also not come across any information on Bukhari’s grandfather, Ibrahim ibn al-Mughirah.[2]


And we are thankful to him for compiling “Sahih al-Bukhari”
