From the moment we were convinced that man was born without a given meaning and was defined by the functions or roles he was assigned from the moment he opened his eyes, it became increasingly difficult to expect anything from man. Moreover, such expectations were always confronted with demands for freedom. This book is "What can we expect from a free man?" It grew out of a strong belief that the question can still be asked in a meaningful way. The different conceptions of man in the Islamic tradition of thought, despite all their differences, are optimistic about our expectations of man. However, how this expectation can be grounded. He found different answers within the philosophical, theological, mystical and jurisprudential perspectives in the tradition of Islamic thought.

The study, which includes fourteen articles, investigates the answers given by different disciplines in the tradition of Islamic thought and the different schools within these disciplines to the question of what a human is and what is really expected of him. For these perspectives, which all consider human life as a long story that progresses in a constant test, human is always something that is "being". The main factors that direct our ability to "be", where this ability should lead, and the areas of accrual constitute important topics in the evaluations of what a human being is. The articles in this study proceed through these questions, while investigating the nature of human beings in the traditions of philosophy, theology, mysticism and fiqh, on the other hand, they deepen the current possibilities of these perspectives.
