Salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu alaikum.
Now a days you can find mostly everywhere people are raging and complaining to have freedom,when they receive it,they want more and more freedom.
"The more you asked for a freedom,the more you are asking to be killed",that's what my teacher advised me.
Shaykh Nazim [qs] once said,when a person is asking for a freedom,it's like he's standing in front of a lion cage and letting it out waiting to be killed.
Most muslims now a days are rebelling and asking for freedom,not for God sake,but just to satisfy their nafs,O what a fool.God created His Divine Law so that our nafs will be caged,it will be prison for our own good so that we wouldn't fall in the hand of the accursed devil.Last time i saw this muslim women in a video without an hijab,then the kafirs asked her why is she not following the islamic law as to wear a hijab,so she replied that if she were to wear a hijab,all people(kafirun) will repel from her and islam teaches us to unite with people not to make them futher from us and she also stated that it's not necessary to wear one and she don't think that people who says that it is obligatory to wear is correct,also she said that we need to follow the new era where not all people are wearing a hijab. Who is she to make up her own law?
O what a fool she is for making up her own law,there's a lot of dalil that it is an obligatory to wear a hijab.It is like she is saying that it is important for us to follow the worldly life and be like them.
But the Prophet [s] once stated in a hadith;
Al-Tirmidhi reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, "He is not one of us who imitates people other than us. Do not imitate the Jews and Christians." According to another version: "Whoever imitates a people is one of them."
Now you can see more and more people following the trends or a culture of the westerners.
But another type of freedom if it's for God sake, like some countries which are control by the Kafirun whose ruler are not fair in his judgement and did not give the muslims their rights,then they can ask for freedom in a good and peaceful manner as islam teaches us to do so,so that they can follow the commandments of Allah at will.
Also asking for freedom from jahannam and other non-beneficial stuffs are necessary.
Anas Ibn Maalik (Radiallaho Anho) narratesthat he heard Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam) saying, “"A person who, in all sincerity, is constant in his Salaah with Jamaah for forty days,without missing being presentwhen the person leading Salaah starts Salaahby saying Allah o Akbar receives two awards:one of freedom from Jahannamand the other of freedom from hypocrisy"
whereas freedom for the worldly lives are ought to leave it.Since you are actually letting your nafs taking control over your soul and heart,and slowly they will take control over it and the door to your heart will be shut close and would be hard to recieve any barakah or hidayah from Allah and when the Awliya is saying by 'you are killing yourself' is that you are not exist in the eyes of Allah [swt]
WaLlahu A'lam.God knows best.

wassalam wa rahmatuLlah wa barakatuHu alaikum.
