Some time ago I posted a question about free will, qadr, and justice here. It was closed as being too broad, so I'm posting separate questions regarding those topics. For context and details of what I'm looking for, refer to that question.
My question here is: what do the Asharites say "free will" consists of, and in what sense is it "free"?
To clarify the second part, questions like "is it free from Allah's intervention" or "is it free from other creations like inclinations, impulses, sense experience" are what I have in mind there. In particular, a person's motivations are part of creation, so I'm hoping to see the relation between the choices a person makes and his motivations addressed in the answers.
