Al-Faraj Bad al-Shedda is one of the narrative works that revives a huge part of ancient popular culture and literature. This book contains many popular stories in the form of fourteen chapters, in which more than two hundred life stories of trapped people are depicted in the form of stories with moral themes. Dehestani has a high reputation for his translation of Al-Faraj Bad al-Shedda. Today, with the expansion of translation studies, translation criticism aims to evaluate the translation compared to the original text and measure its quality, as well as find out how the translator works in translation. One of the appropriate models of translation criticism is Katarina Rice's model, which has been less studied by researchers. Considering the comprehensiveness of translation criticism techniques in Katarina Rice's model compared to other translation models, the present research can provide a comprehensive analysis of the Persian translation of the book Al-Farj after Al-Shada from two linguistic and meta-linguistic perspectives, while applying Rice's model; Because the structural difference of the two languages is definitely significant and undeniable in the translation process, and this issue can be useful in translation research and linguistic studies. Considering the volume of the book, its first chapter was examined as the body of the research. The result of the research showed that Dehestani's translation is an adapted translation of " Al-Faraj Bad al-Shedda".
