Freedom In Islam

Western orientalists always judge Islam as a terrorist, retarded, and the restraint of liberty. Though, if they want to assess honestly, with clear and open mind, then all they charged was not true. Islam is a religion that is always stressed to his followers to do good, peace, compassion, and safety.

Islam is a religion which encourages people to always be innovating and demanding science. Notice the word of God: Read the name of your Lord Who created (Sura 96: 1). Similarly, in terms of freedom. Messenger of Allah said, "Has the Angel Gabriel came to me and said, 'O Muhammad, live as you please, surely you will die.

And love what you love, you really would have parted with it kecintaanmu. And, beramallah what you want, because actually you will get a reply. Then, know that the noble-noble believers are those who implement tahajud and honorable man who is a person who does not beg to others'. "(Bayhaqi from Jabir).

Above hadith shows that Islam is a religion that respects human freedom. Islam gives freedom to live, freedom to do good, to love and be loved freedom, freedom to work, even the freedom of opinion. However, Islam teaches freedom is not freedom without limits.

But freedom is responsible, which is a freedom that considered thoroughly and comprehensively, which is set to salvation and the glory of man. A freedom which is based on rational considerations. There are considerations after the world Hereafter. There are considerations of life and death after the consideration of reward and sin.

Notice what God says: And look at what Allah has bestowed the Hereafter, and do not forget your share of the worldly and do good as Allah has done good to you, and do not do mischief on earth. Allah loves not those who do mischief (Sura 28: 77).

In the present context, there is the freedom that went too far. Freedom there is no longer noticed the impact, let alone pay attention to the norms of religion and norms of life in society. Television, for example, snatch publish the erotic dances and show it at times which is not limited.

Similarly, certain mass media, which always expose the pornography and sexual crimes. In fact, at the same time millions of children watch and read. Showing pornography is already clear that freedom too far, damaging the freedom of the life and teachings of religious norms.
