Which characteristics have been basically utilized to describe the prophet pictures in Ilkhani period? 2. How is the evolutionary religious icons’ trend during the Ilkhani period? 3. What are the factors affecting on religious icons during the mentioned period?) Four images in Ilkhans’ manuscripts were assigned using the iconography method in order to answer these questions. The findings revealed that the painters typically illustrated the prophet’s events life relying on existing descriptions in the Qur’an, hadith and Islamic narratives as well as the interests of art patrons.
