‘Abd-ul-Karim ibn-i Ab-il-‘Awja’ is among those individuals who were known as atheists in the 2nd century A.H., 8th century AD. He would enter holy Muslim places and freely express his opinions without fear of any retribution. His debates with Ja‘far ibn-i Muhammad (A) and his pupils demonstrate the argumentative methods of Imam as-Sadigh (A) used in dealing with those who rejected the existence of God. Discussing the creed and beliefs of Ibn-i Ab-il-‘Awja’, this paper also studies his debates with Imam as-Sadigh (A).
