The Seven Labors of Rostam or Haft-Khan-e-Rostam are a series of acts carried out by the greatest of the Iranian heroes, Rostam, also Romanized as Rustam.

The story of Haftkhan was retold by Ferdowsi in his epic poem, Shahnama. In his labours, Rostam was often accompanied only by his horse, Rakhsh. In two of his labors, he was also accompanied by a champion, Olad. The slaying of the white demon was the last of Rostam's seven labours.
