Theories of Evil

Islamic View of Evil

According to the Islamic Theory evil results from when a person puts himself before God. Men act evil because they do not follow God's teachings and instructions,  and are not accountable for their own responsibilities as a member of society. Men live for their own goals, their prized possessions, pleasures, and the things that they desire.  God is kind, however men do not learn from God himself and try to do good.  According to the Islamic you should fast during Ramadan, and take a journey to Mecca at least once in your life. Men can prevent evil by realizing that he is nothing compared to God! Men must make God the most important concern of their life.
