Illusions of Freedom

10 Apr

No slogan has been paraded as much as ‘FREEDOM’. The idea of ‘Freedom’ is continually propagated by pop songs, Hollywood films, soaps and even politicians. “It’s my life, I’ll do as I please!”, is a typical phrase used in many films and soaps to hammer this idea of freedom in to the minds of the people. Question anyone about freedom and they will rise to defend it, whether they are a socialist, capitalist, Christian or an atheist.

Many people in today’s society carry the idea of freedom without ever thinking what it actually means. How can a capitalist and a communist be both calling for freedom when one is the sworn enemy of the other? It seems that everyone has their own idea of freedom! A purist would say freedom means that a person is only accountable to himself, no one has the right to tell him what to do. Western secular societies claim to be built on freedom. Freedom means: – Freedom of ownership, Freedom of belief, Freedom of expression, Freedom of the individual.

Effects of Freedom

According to the belief of freedom, people are free to own what they like. Therefore water and gas can be privatised in the name of freedom. Whenever we buy something we pay for it. Who do the water companies pay when they take the rain water for nothing and then sell it to us for huge profits? Freedom of ownership means a prostitute can sell her body. It means a person ‘owns’ their life and can do what ever he or she pleases. They can abuse it with drink and drugs or they can commit suicide if they so wish – all in the name of freedom. In the name of freedom of belief, everyone can believe in what ever they like and it doesn’t need to be justified. It is permissible if someone wants to believe that a rat, a dog or a cow is a God. People are free to be satanic worshippers. Freedom of expression means that people are free to invent lies, false allegations and slander against others. It is allowed for people to produce films like “The Last Temptation of Christ”, to insult and hurt the feelings of millions of people world wide. In the name of personal freedom people can have sex with anyone or anything. A man can have sex with as many partners as he likes. Personal freedom can give rise to all sorts of things like child sex rings. Even animals are not safe, since personal freedom can extend to them as well.

The Problems with Freedom.

The fact of the matter is that Freedom does not really exist. In reality everyone is subjugated by someone or something else. Since freedom leads to chaos and a breakdown of society, certain ‘patches’ are put in place to protect people from…..freedom!! So on the one hand people are told that they are free, but on the other, they are not. For example, bodies like OFWAT and OFTEL exist to limit the freedom of various companies. The monopolies commission exists to curtail the freedom of ownership. The government legislate to limit personal freedom by passing laws like the criminal justice bill. The government also bans the use of drugs to curtail peoples freedom. Freedom of expression does not exist either. Various institutions ban Muslims from holding debates on issues like the legitimacy of Israel. So really freedom does not exist, because someone or somebody decides for you what you can and cannot do. Some will say this is fine. One is free as long as they don’t infringe on someone else’s freedom. But who gives anyone the right to define for someone else what is or is not freedom?

After all, according to freedom no one can tell anyone else what to do. Freedom is thus a myth. ‘Freedom’ is the false god of the western world to which it is dogmatically attached. It is a myth that has been sold to the people which keeps them drugged up and stops them from thinking. It is this illusionary idea of ‘Freedom’ that produces people with an immunity to responsibility. It stops anyone from telling anyone else what to do. Each individual is responsible to only them self. It should therefore be of no surprise why so many people cheat on there partners, why rape is on the increase, why crime and violence is on the increase. One mans freedom is another mans misery!!! The heart of the matter is who defines what we can and cannot do? In Britain, a small group of limited human beings pass laws telling the rest of the nation what is legal and illegal. If you disobey them you are punished, thus making men slaves to other men. The fruits of man-made laws are clear for all to see.

What is the Alternative?

If we reflect on our surroundings, we see that nothing is free or isolated. Everything that exists in the universe has a purpose and follows a certain law, from the stars in the night sky that guide the traveller, to the leaves on the trees which help to purify the air. The way the Earth orbits the Sun, the way the birds fly south in the winter, the way the rain revives barren land! The whole of creation follows a certain law, resulting in a harmonious existence. If the universe was free there would be chaos. The Creator of the universe is also the Creator of mankind. Allah designed a system by which mankind should live and this is called ISLAM. The truth is that the only One who can define what is legal and illegal for us, is the one who created us in the first place. Islam liberates men from becoming slaves to other men and gives obedience to Allah, the Creator of the universe. We invite the reader to throw away Freedom the false god and look to Islam for liberation from man-made laws.

    You’ve got to be kidding, right? You can’t be serious! Your delusion never ceases to amaze me. It would be entertaining if it weren’t so utterly sad.

    You look upto man-made laws as if they are the laws of the Creator. Man-made laws has brought mankind nothing but missery. Look around yourself properly – the amount of rapists, peodophiles, theifs, murderers and ect you have free at large is uncountable. Even those in prison are uncountable – your prisons have become overcrowded – so what do these man-made laws decide? that they’ll release the rapists, peodophiles and murderers.
    Man-made laws are laws which have opened doors to these diseases.

    As for your comment regarding women in Islaam – I am a Muslim woman myself. Being a Muslimah (Muslim woman) is the best I could ask for.
    If you were to compare the women of Islaam and the women of the west who follow this idea of “freedom” you will see that the women of the west are actually the ones oppressed.

    Is it not the women of the west who are plastered all over billboards naked to be stared and glared at by foreign men? Not to mention these men may include the rapists?

    Is it not the women of the west who are pushed forward to act like homosexuals?

    Is it not the women of the west who are in bed with their brothers, and their husbands friends?

    Western women are no where near Muslim women.
    Because if you look to the muslim women, you will NOT find them plastered on bill boards to be stared and glared at by rapists.

    You will NOT find them acting like homosexuals.

    You will NOT find them “dating” and “romancing” with foreign men.

    The reason why the Muslim woman is required to be covered in society is so that she can protect herself from the eyes of other men. She is to please her husbands eyes only.

    Going back to the west – Rapists should not be blamed on their own for raping young women. If their victim was not so naked they would’ve had a chance of NOT being raped.
    If you place meat on the road, uncovered – it would undoubtedly call for the attention of the dogs to eat it. But if it was covered, the dogs would’ve hardly notcied it was there.

    When the time comes, where man-made laws are diminished, you will see the perfect solutions Islaam provides to mankind. There will be no more rapists, murderers, theifs etc.

    “Freedom” is actualy what the rapists, murderers, peodophiles and etc believe in. Don’t be supprised to see that they practise their freedom on others – because it was the very same man-made laws, which you love, which introduced this concept to such criminals.
    Just the way you love your freedom – they love their freedom. Therefore be prapared for the day where they may practise their freedom on you or someone most dear to you.
