Abu al-Fazl Beyhaqi is an historian well versed in the principles of historiography, a skilled narrator and fully aware of the secrets of attracting his readers, a just man and a seeker of the truth. All these qualities have turned his History into a superb work.
What we read in this article is an attempt to demonstrate the techniques employed by Beyhaqi to include true facts in his writing. Beyhaqi’s prudent and sharp mind hardly fails to maintain foresight and conservativeness lest anyone would be slightly offended.
In the present article, mention is briefly made of nine techniques that are a combination of conservativeness and frankness in expressing the truth; eleven reasons are also proposed to prove his truth-telling, as well as a number of reasons why Beyhaqi has had to incline to conservativeness.
