Rumi's View of Evil (Iblis)
by Zailan Moris
The problem of evil is an old religious and philosophical one, which has baffled man since antiquity. The core of the problem is that the existence of evil in this world seems to be contradictory to the religious belief that an Omnipotent, Omniscient and Perfectly Good God exists. From the rational viewpoint, the existence of evil seems to contradict the belief in die existence of God with His attributes of Omnipotence, Omniscience and Sovereign Good.
