English term or phrase: Qadarite
At the other extreme, there were those, originally designated as Qadariya by their opponents, who recognised the freedom of human will and the individual's moral responsibility for his deeds. Both the Jabriya and the Qadariya based their arguments on verses from the Koran that supported their views, By early 'Abbasid times, the Mo'talzilites took over the ***Qadarite*** belief in human free will and argued that man can establish the truths of religion on the basis of reason, without any need of divine guidance.

The Ismaili view on Free Will takes the intermediate position between constraint (jabar) and empowerment ***(qadar)***. It emphasises the permanent need of mankind for divine guidance.
