The subject of free will is shared by several disciplines, in addition to psychology, including philosophy, religion, sociology, and law. Specifically, free will is discussed considering the views of the different psychological schools.

Then, attempts to answer the question of how free will is built from an educationally Islamic perspective by mentioning several applications.
