(Jabr). Compulsion or coercion. There is no coercion or compulsion in the deen. Man is free to choose his Path of Return. However, when man has attained a very high level of Divine Knowledge (Ma'rifa), through 'The Nearness of obligatory works' (Qurb al Fara'id), he becomes Allah's Hearing, Allah's Sight, Allah's Speech, etc. It could then be said that in this elevated station man is compelled, from Above, to undertake specific tasks or perform specific duties. He now does not have a choice. Allah acts through him.
