The quality of gods kllowledge of creatures with regard to the simplicity of his essence is a matter which has been discussed by Islamic
philosophers since old time. Peripatetic (Mashshci,i) philosophers had held to the gods active acquired knowledge of things, and illuminating philosophers had held to the gods intuitive knowledge of things; and about that this knowledge is summary or detailed, and if it is detailed how it will be compatible wi,th the simplicity of gods essence, also have been developed ideas.
One of the problems which has been solved well in Molla Sadras transcendent philosophy is the same problem. He has affirmed according to the "authenticity of being" that the gods detailed knowledge of
things does not contradict the simplicity of gods essence, and gods summary knowledge is in the same time the detailed revelation, and
thereby he has solved this problem.
