The work was collected over many centuries by various authors, translators, and scholars across West, Central and South Asia, and North Africa. Some tales trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Egyptian, Sanskrit, Persian, and Mesopotamian literature.
Many tales were originally folk stories from the Abbasid and Mamluk eras, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hezār Afsān (Persian: هزار افسان, lit. A Thousand Tales), which in turn relied partly on Indian elements.
In any case, the character of Shahrazad is Iranian A brave girl who saves her people, especially women, by telling stories
I believe that stories are saviors We are inspired by them The first episodes, which are about Shahrazad’s own life story, were released at the best time I wanted to do something for society and people I wanted to be Shahrazad of the modern world I think this was my mission And after the messages I received from the listeners of One Thousand and One Nights, I knew I had chosen the right path.
