No. Evil is the absence of good. God did not create evil...we made evil, and unfortunately for God, He gave us free will, so everything evil in this world has been chosen by us.

Why do philosophers constitute evil as a problem of theism?

Evil is specifically a problem of monotheism with an omniscient omnibenevolent god, such as in the Jewish, Christian, Islamic, Baha'i, etc. tradition. Evil is not a problem for monotheism with a wicked god or incompetent god or for polytheism in general. The reason that evil is a problem according to philosophers is simply that if God is all-powerful and all-good, the presence of evil in the world makes no sense. Either God is all-powerful and could stop the evil, but chooses not to (making Him not all-good) OR God is all-good and wishes he could stop the evil, but is incapable (making Him not all-powerful). The typical religious answer is that the evil in the world is a matter of perception and these things are actually a test to promote the better aspects of ourselves. Some philosophers are satisfied with this answer. Other philosophers argue that the evil in the world does not seem to target the most morally corrupt people, appearing entirely random, making it unlikely that such a test is being engineered.

In Isaiah 45:7 it says that God created evil. But it doesn't say that God does evil in anywhere I looked . God could create evil things but it doesn't say that God makes you do evil. It's like God created the choices to do good or to do evil . It does say that God makes you do evil things. But you can say I'm looking for it. You could say that God created the powers of evil that Satan choose to use but God never forced Satan to use those evil powers.
