Not clear. And there is nothing in the code you have supplied that either queries, nor inserts to, the database.

Just some code improvements
Add name attribute to button
<input class="buttonstyle" type="submit" value="حفظ" name="حفظ">

//handle the submit request
if (filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'حفظ', FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING)) {
    //get the posted values...change code accordingly
    $post_name = filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'name');

I think you should separate the sql queries in another file

Last thing is the multiple echo, maybe you can try
$html = 
'<table>' . 

    $html .= 'other html';
//finally echo the html variable
echo $html;
