Some believe that man's choice is the origin of evils; that is, what man conceives as evil and attributes it to God is nothing but acts and deeds resulted from man's choice. Man's transcendence and decadence is contingent upon his choice, which is regarded as the origin of most moral and natural evils. Essentially, the idea that events are evil traces back to man's ignorance and unawareness of hidden expedience of these events on the one hand and is due to choosing man's misuse of his choice, on the other hand. Mawlana's main approach is that absolute good God essentially never emanates something called evil, and that a part of what is called evil is due to man's misuse of his will. He believes that the existence of evils is contrary to the belief in attributes of God such as absolute goodness, because such a God cannot be the origin of evils.
