Abstract:   (2189 Views)
: Rostam Farokhzad, an influential figure of the late Sasanids had a key role in the coronation of Yazdgerd III who then promoted him to be his supreme commander in chief of his military. Rostam Farrokhzad had an effective role in fighting against Arabs and even as chief commander he dispatched the troops in the battle of Qadesiah between Iranians and Muslims in 14 AH / 636 AD to 16 AH/ 638 AD,. Muslim historians argue that Rostam Farokhzad used to be pro Muslims however he was afraid of fighting with Arabs. Even he was attracted to Islam, according to some narratives, but feared to reveal it due to the objection of top leaders.
The main issue of this research is to critically analyze the relevant narratives about Farrokhzad while the investigation around his personality and his policy in negotiation with Arabs has also been never done before.  The findings show that Rostam’s declination of war against Arabs is not true since he was looking for some new approaches to rebuff Arabs.
Applying descriptive analytic method and based on the narratives in Islamic resources, this research studies on Rostam’s performance in Qadesieh by analyzing relevant narratives critically.
Keywords: Sassanid, Rostam Farokhzad, Battle of Qadesiah, Yazdegerd III
