HAVING FREEDOM – What does it mean?

Having freedom does not mean that one is allowed to do just anything
Without considering whether it is halal or haram
Having freedom does not mean one can develop and build just anything
Without considering the rules of God
Having freedom does not mean one is allowed to do anything to satisfy one’s desire
Without considering God’s syariah
Having freedom does not mean one has unlimited freedom
Our nation’s freedom or independence¬† is being free from the colonials
But we are not entirely free in matters related with our God
Without the colonials we are free to choose our own identities
We are free to refer to God
We are free to choose and follow the life of the Prophet’s Sunnah
If we are free to do just anything
Then we as human beings would have lost our human identity
The nafs or evil desires will have a wild time
Satan will be their friend
What will happen to this world
if mankind behave like satan and animals?
