Hi Ashegan, Ushta;
The Zarathushtian influence on Islamic doctrine is deep. Even the 5 daily prayers and pre-prayer washing rituals, can be seen as of Iranian origin. But most strikingly the Zoroastrian Chinvat Peretu also appears in Islamic doctrine with the name of Zarat bridge.
One of the cardinal doctrines of Islam the Mi'jra or Mohammed's night Journey to Jerusalem and heaven appears to have largely borrowed from Arda Viraf Nahmeh. You can check members.tripod.com/forahura under the article First Prophet
