The existence of evil in the world has always presented something of a conundrum for theists who espouse the doctrine of a Supreme All-Good Divine Being. How can God exist and allow death and devastation, cataclysmic world wars, widespread poverty, homelessness, unemployment, disease and depression? Join us as we examine the answers to these perennial questions in Islamic philosophy.
