The Tarikh-i guzida or Tarikh e Gozideh, (meaning: Excerpt history) (Persian: تاریخ گزیده) is a compendium of Islamic history from the creation of the world until 1329 (729 AH), written by Hamdallah Qazvini (Khwaja Hamid Ullah Mustaufi) and finished in 1330. It was written in a dry simple style and dedicated to Ghiyah al-Din, son of Rashid al-Din.
The Tarikh-i guzida contains the history of the Islamic world, from the creation of the world up to 1329(729 AH). The introduction includes the creation of the world followed by six sections;
- The prophets
- Persian Kings before Muhammad
- Muhammad and caliphs
- Persia and other lands ruled by Muslim dynasties
- Poets and scholars

The Tarikh-i guzida was very popular and numerous copies existed, of which many were found in European collections. It was partially translated into French in 1903 by Jules Gantin. E.G. Browne published a complete edition in 1910 and an abridged English version in 1913. In 1960, Abd al-Husayn Nava'i published a complete version of the Tarikh-i guzida.
