Freedom gives people a sense of stability. In the text, “Reading Lolita in Tehran,” it talks about how Iran forced woman to adhere to an islamic dress code. However, this dress code made women worry about going out and being ridiculed and punished due to the fact that the way they were dressed was unacceptable. Freedom is a common factor in human security. When people know that they have the right to do something, it makes them feel safe. Freedom
In Islam, God, grants human rights and therefore they can never be taken away or changed, for any reason. As a result, these concepts are part of the way Islamic individuals are portrayed in society. Every Muslim is required to accept them and recognize the people's right to have them enforced and obeyed. Islam allows complete freedom of thought and expression, provided that it does not involve spreading anything that is harmful to individuals and the society at large. The value of the community and society as a whole is greatly emphasized in Islamic traditions, as the common wealth of the society is important. This in turn reflects on society, because in Islamic culture, it is important to act in a lawful way as it is entrenched not only in their Muslim religion but in their general lifestyle as well. These factors greatly affect society because their customs, traditions and beliefs are embedded in their laws and individuals must act accordingly.
Speaker notes: The question concerning a free will shouldn't be whether we have one, it should be whether such a thing is possible. We must ask ourselves, "Free from what?" A mind free from all motivating factors would have nothing to base decisions upon. There is just no such thing as an uncaused choice. Many people, religious and secular alike, wonder if cause and effect ultimately means that everything in the universe including human behavior is predestined, bound to happen, or predetermined. We are not made to do things by cause and effect -- we are PART of cause and effect -- we make ourselves do things. The cause and effect that goes on in our minds is what constitutes self, and our particular cause-effect process is manifestly different from what we normally think of cause and effect. We remember our past, and direct our actions to bring about specific results to satisfy feelings of need and desire -- something random causality cannot do.
The idea behind freedom is to be respectful and useful to our society but also to do so at your own wishes. Freedom is important to everyone. If someone is deprived from this innate right, they will either lose an essence of their soul or go mad. When freedom is guaranteed, a person can think freely, go anywhere they want, speak their opinion freely without fear from other people who would cause harm to them for their opinion. Freedom of opinion is among the most important aspects of freedom. In some societies where freedom of opinion is not
Islam, meaning submission or submitting oneself fully to God, is one of the world’s largely practiced religions. Those that participate and practice the Islamic religion
The freedom of every individual human comes by its liberty first to be safe. Being unrestricted gives each human their rights of living in peace because the rights of freedom is better to have to be able to live life with no fear in the world. like once Patrick Henry said “Give me liberty or give me death”, this can be seen from the Civil Right Movement, “The boy in the striped pajamas” and the Holocaust prove the struggles faced to be in liberty.
Freedom is the ultimate goal—this intrinsic desire has been manifested within human civilization since the beginning of time. Although, humans crave the idea of complete freedom, they do not understand what complete freedom entails. I believe freedom is a social construct that is conceptualized. The definition of freedom almost always varies from person to person; my interpretation of freedom is being given the ability to act, reason and believe with the condition of minimal constraint. Moreover, the terms freedom and free-will must be differentiated between, they cannot be defined within the same realm. Free-will is a psychological capacity, directing ones behavior in a way responsive to reason, while freedom is constrained by rules that govern us through social order. Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor proclaims that it is not freedom that brings man happiness, but security. On the contrary, Socrates a famous Greek philosopher, places much emphasis on freedom that he accepts death over living a slave.
Free Will is the capacity of acting without the pressures of fate and the ability to act because of one’s discretion. It is an idea that most believe in, because it means that you are in control
Although free will has been defined in multiple, conflicting ways, the present approach analyzes it as a psychological capacity including self-control, choices, planning, and the ability to assess and initiate things independently. These capabilities are useful for making human social life and culture possible, but they depend on a limited resource and therefore often fall short of optimal levels. Religion may be helpful to individuals and society in part because it supports both the exercise of free will and the belief in it.
Life should not have to be a decision of what freedom truly means nor should humanity have to fight so hard to incorporate the foundation of equality. We are humans of flawed perfections, who look for acceptance in a
For example, if you leaped of a bridge and you died. It was your choice to jump it had nothing to do with faith or outside forces. If you decided to commit murder and go to jail, you control your destiny
There are those who think that our behavior is a result of free choice, but there are also others who believe we are servants of cosmic destiny, and that behavior is nothing but a reflex of heredity and environment. The position of determinism is that every event is the necessary outcome of a cause or set of causes, and everything is a consequence of external forces, and such forces produce all that happens. Therefore, according to this statement, man is not free.
The first matter to be noted is that this view is in no way in contradiction to science. Free will is a natural phenomenon, something that emerged in nature with the emergence of human beings, with their
The implication that the principles of Islam clash with the principles of democracy is very apparent in the Western world, especially after the Jihadist terrorist attacks that took place on September 1st, 2001. Americans tend to view Islam as a violent, savage religion that cannot go along with democratic values. Because Islam is related to terrorism and much of the Arab world is non-democratic, it seems like Islam is the reason. Is this view of Islam accurate, or is it distorted? Some argue that Islam places political power in the hands of God, so when it comes down to it, Islam must be represented in a totalitarian regime. Others argue that in reality, the Islam is not antidemocratic; rather, historical and economic factors are the reason behind the lack of democratic regimes in the Arab world. Accordingly, proponents of this view suggest that it really depends on how the Islamic text is interpreted. By contrast, I suggest that the text is not the important factor; what really matters are Muslims ' opinions of democracy. Through the analysis of secondary sources and public opinion surveys, I argue that Islam is not the main obstacle that hinders the Arab world from democratization.
Semitic religions, on the other hand, tend to look at freedom through the concept of free will, as a fulfillment of the individual personality through a conscious relationship with God. Another aspect of this more western view is the definition of freedom as the ability to enjoy life without oppression, giving the concept a social and political dimension. Either way, freedom for the individual is in conflict with the morality and benevolence which
