Meaning of Freedom: An Islamic Perspective

The only thing that makes a man really free from any form of bondage is his turn to Divinity. His submission to the will of Lord that sets him really free from the illusions of the human. God’s devotion is Devotion without dependence, a Devotion that liberates and elevates. In the experience of this intimacy a man perceives the presence of the Being, of the Divine and attains an independent and a true meaning of freedom in life.

Valuing Freedom

What will happen if all pushes to exercise freedom to do what one likes, to speak what one minds and to indulge in what one yearns for? The society will no less be a model than that of chaos. Freedom without accountability is no less an ignorant principle as that of a ship without a course, as that of a nation without leadership and as that of learning without values.
