About Sassanid Princess Dara-Izdadwar

According to one account, the Caliph Omar (father-in-law of Muhammad) confirmed Bustanai as Exilarch of the Jews after the Arabian conquest of Persia, and gave Bustanai the daughter of Chosroes II as his wife, while Omar married her sister. But according to another account, given in Abraham ibn Daud's, Seder ha-Kabbalah (12th century), the Caliph was Muhammad's son-in-law Ali and the father of Bustanai's Persian wife was Yezdagird III.
