The application of security studies plays an important role in regulating social relations. The relationship between security and freedom in human societies is one of the topics of security studies. Understanding the views of Islamic thinkers on the relationship between security and freedom is one of the methods helpful in regulating that relationship. Seyed Qutb is one of the thinkers who discussed security issues in his works. However, little research has been done about that. This article seeks to provide Seyed Qutb's perspective on the relationship between security and freedom in three dimensions: political, cultural, and economic. The question here is what is the relationship between security and freedom in the mind of Sayyid Qutb? To answer this question, the method of argumentation and the division of the theory of employment of Allameh Tabatabai (RA) has been used as a theoretical framework. One of the most important findings of this article is that neither security nor freedom takes precedence over the idea of Sayyid Qutb, but there is a transcendent interaction between the two. According to Sayyid Qutb, this interaction stems from the application of Islamic law. It is about security and freedom, and it is only in Islamic society that such a relationship between security and freedom is established. The results of this study, while creating scientific development in issues related to security and freedom, are used in legislation and conflict resolution in the political system.
