Abstract: 
Mulla Sadrā has discussed many philosophical and theological problems among which prophets' sinlessness is. Most of his consideration of this subject has come in his exegesis of Holy Quran. Different definitions of sinlessness can be found in his works that despite of their apparent differences can be unified in one definition. It should be noted that he didn’t define sinlessness separately but among argumentation of sinlessness and interpretation of Quarnic verses. He believes that prophets are sinless before and after their prophecy. In his view, prophets are inerrant from unbelief, associationism (shirk) and those sins in conflict with prophecy whether inadvertently (sahvī) or intentionally (' amdī). He says that evidence for proving prophets' preservation from inadvertent big sins (kabīra) before prophecy and intentional small abominating (munaffirah) sins and also impossibility of oblivion are insufficient, and explains the reason of inadequacy in some of them. He gives us ten arguments to show the necessity of prophets' sinlessness. In introducing these arguments which are based on religious premises, he is influenced by Fakhr al- dīn al-Razī. Mullā Sadrā considers sinlessness as a divine gift which human beings can obtain only by His aid and His affirmation. In facing with those verses used by the opponents of sinlessness as premises of their arguments, Mullā Sadrā's method is carrying them as lapse.
