Unfortunately, this does not look good. bahar.tex seems to be nothing
more than a long series of null bytes:
$ tr -d '\000' < bahar.tex | wc -c
There doesn't appear to be anything in the file to recover.
Hopefully your user has a backup copy. If not, depending on your
users' operating system, you might try some form of disk recovery
Sorry for the bad news :(
