There have been disagreements on the number of original Khayyam’s Quatrains (rubaiyat). Stylistics approaches can help to distinguish the original Quatrains. The prosody has the ability to show some stylistic characteristics. Although the main goal of this study is to find the prosodic style of Khayyam’s Quatrains by determining the Frequency of prosodic factors, there was no way to study prosody of Quatrains in general. The history of finding the main meter of Quatrain is studied in critical view. The results show that the frequencies of prosodic factors is effective and useful in realizing Khayyam’s personal style. Some prosodic factors have high frequencies and others have low frequencies: three long syllables is not used as the first foot generally; In the second foot, two short syllables are not substituted with one long syllable. %95 of Quatrains have composed in just 4 meters. 256 prosodic patterns could be distinguished on the whole.
