Abstract: 

The problem of evil is considered as one of the fundamental problems in the theological systems, particularly in the Islamic philosophy. The problem of evil is sometimes proposed as the evidence to reject the existence of God, and sometimes as an incompatible issue with some of the attributes of God such as justice, benevolence, omnipotence. Most of the philosophers and theologians have endeavored to find a solution to the different aspects of evil. One of the approaches is the ontological analysis in which the evil is perceived as non-existent, either as the lack of essence or the lack of the perfection of the essence (non-existence theory of evil). Among the scholars, this view has many pros and cons. Sadr al-Motaahelin has proposed two positions in this reagrd. In his early philosophical works, especially in Asfar, he defended the non-existence theory of evil and regarded it as discursive, and in analyzing and answering some of the philosophical and theological issues such as the relation of the problem of evil with the attributes of God, the perfect system, fate and destiny, and the perceptual evil, he has benefited from this theory. From the interpretation of the book Usul-e-Kafi which is among the latest writings of Sadra, it is concluded that he has deviated from his theory. Explaining, criticizing, and investigating the ideas of the proponents and opponents of this view are among the new findings of the present paper.
