Abstract: 

The question of the originality of existence and validity of essence is one of the major issues in Transcendental Wisdom. But to consider existence as original and essence as valid; meaning that the external reality is the true example of existence and essence is limited to the sphere of validity, supposition and illusion is not approved. Hence this belief will entangle us in a challenge which can not be dealt with unless we accept a new reading of the validity of essence.
This article has tried to provide the readers with three kinds of interpretation of Mulla Sadra's writings: 1) To regard essence by its nature limited to the mind. 2) To know essence as-equal to existence. 3) To regard essence not as equal to existence but as the illusion of existence. And finally what the article tries to prove is that the first interpretation is stronger and more logical than the other interpretations in discussing essentials, accidentals, substance, accident, the ten categories and natural universals.
It can be claimed that the meaning of the validity of essence in Mulla Sadra's works is to study essence as essence, otherwise the essence as an entity in the external world equals existence and essence cannot define existence or the illusion of it.
