The problem of will has been a controversial subject in religious, philosophical and social fields. Indeed, the discussions concerning will (iradah) have an importance place in Islamic thought. The question whether human will limits divine will, which is the subject of this study, is one of important discussions in this field. In this connection, the position of the Mu'talizah that the divine will does not relate to the human voluntary actions has been considered by Ahl al-Sunnah as a limitation imposed on the divine will and therefore harshly criticized.
