By: Esma One of the majar factors that has been taken up by many historians in various Islamic historiographical schools, and been based as grounds for the interpretation of different events in the history of Islam is "predestination and divine will". In line with their political and state interests, the rulers, and the political and administrative elites supported the extension of the predetermination principle to all aspects of people's lives, throughout Iranian history. The present paper investigates the scope of the application of this principle in "Tarikh-e Jahan goshai" by Ata Malek-e Joveyni, the persian historian, and tries to answer the question of how influential the theory of predestination and divine will" had been in Joveyni's" historiographical method, and his style of recording various evenrs and issues of the time.
