Defining my Personal Freedom

Freedom is not to do what is prohibited in the Holy Quran but to do what is best for humanity. I shall not be controlled by a Mullah but by the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad and the words of the Holy Quran.

I have faith in my personal values not clothed with racism and archaic beliefs. I shall cherish the freedom to acquire a deeper knowledge to guide my personal choices and decisions, not outside Islam.

I assert without reservation that freedom for me is absolute and attainable only by me. My freedom is personal and not debatable and I will not allow books nor theories to define it for me.

My freedom is my possession and could not be owned by anyone NOT UNLESS I share it willingly out of being selfless.

If my stand on freedom will be viewed by others as being selfish, for their failure to think outside the box, then I don't mind. I will not be free if I have to conform to their personal expectations.

And I can only truly say that I am free when I know that my life is defined by me. Sometimes Freedom for me is not also being independent for I can find freedom in sharing my life.

Freedom for me anchors not on other people's acceptance of my stand but on how I accept myself for who I really am and who I want to be.

    A resounding yes I say to you about the premise of your freedom, which if you don't stand guard over can be easily overtaken. There was a time in my life when my hands were literally tied behind my back. Then I cried deeply inside. I thought my freedom would be forever vanquished.

    Now I am grateful for the freedom that I have, even though it is continually being diminished by Big Brother. I will unabashedly forever celebrate and fight for what remains of my freedom.
