Case Study (بدون رتبه معتبر)

Research in the field of literary exchanges between Persian and Arabic literature has been one of the richest fields and at the same time, one of the most challenging issues among researchers, and the fate of the Persian language and literature after the emergence of Islam in Iran is also one of the issues that has caused much debate. The method of the exchange and, more importantly, the fate of Persian literature in the first two centuries, may have created two opposing groups that each of them sought to prove their hypotheses and answer the questions of whether literature was basically transferred from the Sassanid era to post Islam? Did such literature basically exist or not, and if so, how was it transferred to Arabic literature and how did it interact with the host literature? And such questions have led Iranian, Arab, and even Western scholars to find answers to them. One of these researchers who spent more than 50 years of his life in the field of comparative research between Persian and Arabic was Mohammad Mohammadi Malayeri. During these years, he tried to find an answer to the silence of Persian literature, especially in the two centuries after the emergence of Islam in Iran. This article attempts to compete with competing hypotheses such as two centuries of silence or a period of rupture by examining the two concepts of "translation and interpretation" as the most important channels of transfer of pre-Islamic Iranian culture and literature to the Islamic era from the perspective of Mohammad Mohammadi Malayeri, who has made it unclear what and how Persian literature was in the Islamic era. This article achieves its aims by examining all the works of the late Mohammadi and also by referring to ancient Arabic sources and some books and articles related to it. Therefore, by examining such theories, this study has examined the background and roots of the formation of such terms or theories to some extent, and then examined the theory of the period of transfer of Persian literature to Arabic literature during two centuries, which was proposed by Dr. Mohammadi and all aspects of his theory were explained based on ancient Arabic sources. In the end, it was found that the ways of transferring Iranian culture and literature to Arabic culture and language have been extensive, the translation and interpretation of which should be considered the most significant. The important point in this regard is that translation and interpretation have different types and go beyond what is discussed in literary and cultural circles to the extent that we see different types of interpretation such as the interpretation of history and the interpretation of characters, and this issue, that is, paying attention to the types of interpretations and not only the interpretation of Persian words expressed by Mohammadi, has solved many complex equations and mysteries of the Iranian culture and literature during two centuries and has provided us with thought-provoking answers.
