Assalamu Alaikum
We have thousands of Prophets who haven't been named. Some of the ones that we know of have had their message corrupted to create other religions like Christianity which was a corrupt version of what Hazrat Isa (عليه السلام) said. I want to know if the Iranian Prophet of Zoroastrianism was a Prophet.

Ws,

I believe, you have the answer in the first paragraph. 

If it hasn't been named it means it hasn't been named. That simple.

According to several narrations, they did have a Prophet and a book, which is why they are accepted as  from AhlulKitab. 

They killed their Prophet and burnt the book.

The possible name of their Prophet: 

زردشت

Zardesht

The other possibility is that his name was 

داماست

Damast

(There's a suggestion that Zardesht claimed prophethood but was not a Prophet) 

 

Their original book was apparently called

جاماست

Jamast, and contained 12 thousand pages of bullskin according to a narration in Wasael Al Shia

Is there any authentic narration that indicates Zoroaster was a Prophet? 

If not, then, ultimately, we don't and can't know. 

The people who claim he was are most likely doing it for national pride reasons.

No one discussed authenticity, and eitherway it's subjective; which is why for instance, Sayed Khoie weakens sources and others don't. 

Nothing is set in stone and that's the beauty of the science. 

But it's good to know that Shiachat has its own Najashi lol

I find it kinda funny how the fellow Ummah forget what Surah 22:17 says: "Indeed, those who have believed and those who were Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associated with Allah - Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed Allah is, over all things, Witness."

A "Magian" (majūsa) is another name for a Mazdaean, which is yet another name for the more well-known "Zoroastrian". 

The Prophet Zoroaster/Zarathustra himself is never directly mentioned anywhere (although there are allusions in many ahadith) but there is very little doubt in the historical Zoroaster being an important Prophet sent by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). 

Alongside that, we gotta remember Dhul Qurnayn (Surah 18), who (if he was a historical person) was Cyrus the Great - who was a Zoroastrian ruler in Persia - later mentioned in Isaiah 45 in the Jewish Tanakh. Therefore solidifying the place of Zoroastrianism in the Abrahamic tradition, even if the two are never directly identified together for various reasons (afterall Zoroastrianism basically just has one Prophet and doesn't pay attention to others, it is slightly more selective than Judaism or it's precursor of Samaritanism).

Aside from that, it's hard to miss the most significant pure-Monotheistic religion outside of the Abrahamic tradition.
