This paper evaluates the problem of evil from Islamic point of view in three areas: ordinary people, theologians and theosophists. The reader will see how Muslims in some areas deal with the problem of evil without paying any attention to arguments and solutions that been presented by theologians and philosophers. On the other hand, Islamic theologians have, throughout the history of theology, offered some classical arguments. This paper discusses them briefly and critically. The conclusion is that in current Islamic theology we cannot see any new creative thinking and thus the problem of evil still remains obscure. Finally, the paper introduces the answer to the problem made by a new philosophical movement in the Shi’ite tradition, consisting of thinkers called theosophists.

This work, a partial history of Iranian laws between 1906 and 2020, demonstrates that the main obstacle to improving the legal status of non-Muslims in Muslim contexts is the fiqhī opinions, which are mistakenly regarded as an integral part of the Islamic faith. It aims to clarify why and how Islamic Shiite rulings about non-Muslims shifted to the Iranian laws and how it is possible to improve the legal status of the Iranian non-Muslims under the Islamic government.
