The purpose of the present study is critical investigation of the hypothesis of book burning in Iran by the Muslim conquerors. Accordingly, the main research question is how much the hypothesis of book burning and destruction of books by the Muslim conquerors is compatible with historical evidences and reason as well as objective, cultural, and documentary facts. The method of study is descriptive analysis and the results indicated that from political and social perspective, the subject of book burning and destruction of books by the Muslim conquerors can be interpreted that Islam's instruction and the Muslims' scientific improvement left no further opportunity for the presentation of the Iranians' sciences so their books were extinguished as a result of negligence to their fields of science. It means that the general policy of Islam is based on consideration for science and knowledge and that the Muslims had become so rich by the knowledge of valid references so other branches of science that were not needed gradually were extinguished and just sciences with dignity and state were developed by the Muslims.
