Intimacy with the views of Mohammad-Taqi Jafari would call for an extensive academic exploration of his works. In the present study we would closely deal with those parts of his views which are concerned with entity and existence issues. In dealing with existence and Life, Jafari downplaying materialistic argumentations places a premium upon religious and moral aspects of life. Taking the almighty as the pivot of existence offers man the highest position because of the duties placed on his shoulders. He judges life to be insatiable if it were to be viewed as an objective and materialistic representation of entity. Conceptually viewed, a unique characteristic of life is that it can foster existence necessity within itself. The present study attempts to explore Jafari's views on entity and life.
