The circumstances of man’s role alongside the universal laws of history is a topic that has engaged the minds of historians. Considering the various theological schools of thought and different jurispudential denominations in the Islamic world, the viewpoint of the Muslim historians - who believe in the Divine customs  and are usually inclined towards one of these schools and denominations or are attributed to them -   regarding the matter of determinism and choice and how they connect this with their view through analyzation and explanation of historical events and how they relate the directorship of God to the actions of man, is a worthy topic of study.
This article tries to examine the viewpoint of the famous historian Abul Abbas Taqi ud-Din Maqrizi {845 A.H.} of the Shafi-‘I jurispudential and Ash-‘ari theological school of thought who lived during the Mamluk Sultanate in this regard using a descriptive-analytical approach and through researching related material in his works and comparing that to his theological inclination.
The findings of this research show that despite his deterministic inclination and his belief in the viewpoint of “Attainment”  of the Ash-‘arites, in his historiographies , while relying on religious texts, he is inclined towards man’s choice and free will and his active role in historical events.
Keywords: Maqrizi, Islamic Historiographies, Divine Customs, History’s universal laws, Historical Determinism.
