Dear iindica, from reading your coin, I think it is Ilkhan coin (not sure):
Mongols of Persia, Ilkhan, Sultan Sulayman Khan, AR Dirham, Date?, Zanjan mint (AH 739-746/1339-1346 AD)
First photo:

خلد ملكه  Khullida Mulkahu
ضرب  Zarb
Margin: Information about the date (not clear).
Second photo:
Field: inside a square:
لا اله الا   La Ilah Illa
الله محمد  Allah Muhammad
رسول الله       Rasul Allah
Margin: The square is surrounded by the names of the Rashidun Caliphates, Rightly Guided Caliphs (الخلفاء الراشدون‎):
Top ابو بكر   Abu Bakr

Bottom عثمان Uthman
Right عمر Umar

Thank you Saro for your confirmation:
Mongols of Persia, Ilkhan, Sultan Sulayman Khan, AR 6 Dirham, AH (741 to 746), Zanjan mint (AH 739-746/1339-1346 AD)
From the weight of the silver coin, it should be 6 Dirhams and the date is AH (741 to 746).
