Abstract: 

Nihayatul- irab fi akhbarel -fors val- arab is the name of a book whose author(s) and the authoring time are uncertain. In compiling this book, authors such as Amer Shabi, Ayyoub ibn-i Gherriyah, Abdullah ibn-i Moghafa, Asmai and Ab ol-bakhtary have contributed. There are three different speculations concerning the time of authorship: 1) 75 A.H. 2) before the year 142 A.H. 3) around 170-193 A.H. However, this book-- especially the parts narrated by ibn-i Moghafa—are the most important sources in our understanding Siyar ol-molouk and subsequently the Khoday-name in the Sassanid period. Since Ferdowsi’s Shah-name is also connected to the Khoday-name through the Abu-Mansouri Shah-name, the story of Dara and Alexander have been chosen from Nihayatu’l- irab and the Shah-name in order to determine the main source of the two narratives. The comparative study of the structure of the story of Alexander and Dara in these two books reveals that Ferdowsi’s account is exactly like ibn-i Moghafa’s but Ferdowsi has eliminated some details and has added some more to serve his storytelling purposes.
