In correcting a text such as Shahnameh, not only it is necessary to distinguish the correct scripts from the incorrect ones and the original verses from the added ones, but also, it is special importance to find the correct position of the verses in the vertical axis of the word. The verse "قضا گفت گیر و قدر گفت ده/فلک گفت احسنت و مه گفت زه" has been mentioned in two places in Shahnameh with five other verses; once in Rostam's battle with Ashkboos and once in Bahram Choobin's war with Saveh Sking. In this article, we have tried to first show the status of this verse in the Shahnameh manuscripts. After that, we have tried to discuss its authenticity by pay attention to the situation of this verse in the manuscripts. Based on our researches, no solid reason has been provided so far for considering this verse as an appendix, and in addition to the unanimity of the manuscripts, one can also find a side confirmation of its authenticity in the collection of Homam Tabrizi. On the other hand, despite the fact that this verse is mentioned in twelve important manuscripts up to the ninth century AH, they do not have the oldest manuscript of Shahnameh and Senjozov manuscript, and Bondari has not translated it. Therefore, it is difficult to make a definite decision about it, and until we find a valid document, it is better to take it into the text in the grip of doubt.
