Rustam-e Dastân is one of the most eminent heroes of Shahnameh, an intelligent warrior with unforgivable mistakes. The battle between Rustam and his son, Sohrab, is among the most poignant tragedies in Shahnameh. Rustam leaves her wife, Tahmineh, to attend a war before their son’s birth; therefore, he does not know Sohrab. Years later, Sohrab, a young fame-seeker warrior, accepts hand-to-hand combat with Rustam. A conspiracy, of course. Rustam and Sohrab do not know each other, and Sohrab’s attempts to figure out his opponent’s name remain fruitless. They start the combat, and a whole day of fighting tires old Rustam. He beguiles young Sohrab to cease the fight and pursue it the next day. On the second day, Rustam wounds Sohrab with another trick. When Sohrab cries out that his father, Rustam, will take revenge for his death, he finally recognizes his son and regrets what he has done. He pleas for nušdâru, but king Keykâvus, scared of the two heroes’ unification, lingers to send it. Sohrab succumbs a few hours before the medication arrives.
