Despite Al-Hirah's cultural ifluence on He history of Arabia, the lranian schslars and hiotorians have largely dealt with its polotical role, in the past, neglecting its important cultural function in the Sasanian - dominated parts of Arabia.
This article tries to trace Hira's footprints in the cultutal life of Arabia, both before and after lslam, and discuss and review its implications.
In line with this objective, while having a general review of Hira's geography and history, we will investigate the role of Hira in familiarizing the Arabs of Arabia with different religions, spreading the culture of Sasanian Persia among them, introducing writing to them, etc.
