In almost all instances, the meaning of an omen remains consistent across various volumes. In two cases, however, identical subject has two different interpretations. The question is what factor or factors have caused differences in meanings of omens with the same subject. The main aim of the present research is to study the elements of each illustration, which has caused differences in meaning of omens. This current study was done through descriptive analysis and it’s data gathering was carried out in library method . The findings indicate that the reason for the difference between meanings of the horoscope is hidden in the elements governing the images. The stability and balance of the image, the presence of the two divine prophets, pomegranates and spandans, revealed the splendor of the horoscope in the disputed version. In contrast to the instability of the image, the presence of the people of Navchr('39')il, the Qurchr('39')anic verse on the corruption of the people of Gog and Magog in the land and the large size of the bogies in the image, In the Topkapi version.
