The miniatures of this manuscript have been attributed to Mohammad Yusef

Shahnameh of Rashidā[1][2][3] (Persian: شاهنامهٔ رشیدا‎) is an illustrated manuscript of the Shahnameh, the national epic of Greater Iran. It contains 738 pages with 93 miniatures in Isfahan School. The miniatures have been attributed to Mohammad Yusef, a Safavid-era painter. This manuscript dates from the 17th century and now it is located in the Golestan Palace. The calligraphy of this manuscript has been attributed to ʿAbd al-Rashid Daylami and for this reason, it is called the "Rashida Shahnameh".[4]

The miniatures of this Shahnameh are very similar to the miniatures of the Windsor Shahnameh so it has been suggested that these manuscripts have been prepared by the same painters.[5]
