Oleh Latifabdul;(17)

Did messengers compel people to follow them or to obey their laws?
Does ALLAH give the right to choice?
Does ALLAH give the freedom to people; freedom to choose his religion, freedom to expression, freedom to speech, and freedom to wear his clothes?

Yes, ALLAH said in Al Quran. Yes, everyone has the freedom to choose his religion.
There is no any compulsion or forces in choosing religion. Let us find an answer in Al Quran, as a guide book for mankind, what ALLAH said;
1. There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. so whosoever refuses to be led by those who transgress and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All hearer, All Knower.(QS.2;256)
2. Do you submit yourselves to Allah in Islam? If they do, they are rightly guided; but if they turn away, your duty is only to convey the Message; and Allah is All Seer of His slaves.(QS.3;20)
3.And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed all of them together. So will you (O Muhammad) then compel mankind, until they become believer! (QS.10;99). 4. Verily, you remind them (O Muhammad) you are only one who reminds. You are not a dictator over them? (QS.88;21-22) 5.And say Muhammad; “The truth is from your Lord.” Then whoever wills, let him believe; and whoever wills let him disbelieve.(QS.18;29).

The Al Quran also asks Muslims to bear true witness, even if that means testifying against your friends, family and community. Seems to me that by ignoring all this advice, you're cherry-picking from the tree of religion as much you claim I am. I

t is really clear that from God verses above that people born on earth have been given the freedom; freedom of choosing his: religion, clothing, speech, behavior etc.
The Prophet Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon them) is last Prophet did not get authority to force people to follow his religion, or to follow the way of Messengers’ dress, or to follow his language(Arab) etc.
But if you follow the messengers or Muhammad (peace be upon him) sincerely, you will get reward from God, because Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the best model as human being God’s created.
As ALLAH said to the Messenger of Muhammad saw ; And shown him the two ways (good and evil) (QS.90:10)
Also as ALLAH said to the Messenger of Moses; Today I am giving you a choice between good and evil, or between a blessing and a curse, between live and death. (Deuteronomy 30; 1,15).
[b]You were born with the freedom of choice.[/b] The Prophet’s authority from ALLAH was only to convey God‘s commandments. How to convey God’s commandments? Follow ALLAH’s commandments kindly, sincerely and show a role of model. May people will follow you freely.
God’s verses in Al Quran and Bible are only as a reminder for human being. The Human right of freedom of choosing religion, speech, freedom of expression, freedom of wearing clothing, eating foods, ect.
The human right based on ALLAH Commandments found in the Al Quran and the Old Testaments as above verses.

Article 18 . Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Article 19. Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and _expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
6. Follow (O men!) the revelation given unto you from your Lord, and follow not, as friends, or protectors, other than Him. Little it is ye remember of admonition.QS 7:3..
If we take a look at Arab's countries which everyone has no right to act his faith or his religion, there is no right to choose his style of dressing, there is no right to choose his leader ect.

For example; Saudi Arabia does not give the right to Syiah, Ahmadiah, Sufi ect to perform their faith in public. Also in Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bruney, and other islamic countries have no freedom of perform his faith. Ahmadiah, and other minority groups of islamic organisation has been banned.

Also if we take a look at Communis's countries, people has no right to act or to perform his faith or religion, no right tom choose his leader, no right to speech or express his thought, no right to travel to any countries and no right to watch TV, Internet etc.

Both systems of their Goverment are dictatorship. There are no voices from their people. People has to follow what their leader's laws...not ALLAH's laws. Therefor, their people is real poverty, lack of education, lack of nutrients ect.

So the system of democracy is opposite of the system of dictatorship. In Democratic system, people has the right to choose his leader, but in dictatorship system people has no right to to choose his leader.

1. ALLAH gives a freedom to every born child to choose to his faith, religion, to change his religion, freedom to teach his religion or his belief and freedom to choose his leader.

2. Democratic system is a system which follow ALLAH's laws.

3. Freedom is the best GIFT from ALLAH to everyone.

4. Japan and America are a the best model of the democratic countries, everyone has the right to choose his faith, or to perform his religion peacefully, freedom to speech and express his thought ect. May ALLAH bless you all and open your heart.
Sincerelly yours
Assalamu'alaikum wrwb
