God also gave humans responsibility & power of free will apart from freedom...He didn't create us to roam freely on earth and enjoy our life...He gave His guidance to us through His messengers so that we realize our purpose and return back to Him from where we belonged originally....

Yes. But he has to go forward rather than going back.
Let us take a practical example rather than the putting forward our theories. Nelson Mandela has been through the entire cycle of being born in the ruling family of the Thembu dynasty to being put for 27 years in prison by the apartheid rulers of South Africa to becoming the first South African president elected in a fully representative democratic election.
If a person is sufficiently strong, internally, he can break all shackles of slavery and become free.
