Submitters Perspective

What does it really mean?

In the English dictionary we see that Submission is defined as “to yield to the power or authority of another for example to submit to a conqueror”. In the Case of the religion of Islam (Submission) it is yielding to the authority of God, the one and only creator.

People from all religions unequivocally claim that they have yielded to the authority of God, so does this mean people from all religions are submitters (Muslims)?

The important aspect of submission is to yield exclusively to the authority of God alone without associating others with Him in the strictest form of monotheism as taught by God Himself in His scriptures. Without doing so we have not submitted.

Thus the religion of Submission is also the religion of absolute and strict monotheism (the worship of the One and Only God without the association of others).

[2:131] When his Lord said to him, “Submit,” he said, “I submit to the Lord of the universe.”

[30:30] Therefore, you shall devote yourself to the religion of strict monotheism. Such is the natural instinct placed into the people by GOD. Such creation of GOD will never change. This is the perfect religion, but most people do not know.

[10:105] I was commanded: “Keep yourself devoted to the religion of monotheism; you shall not practice idol worship.

[30:27] And He is the One who initiates the creation, then repeats it; this is even easier for Him. To Him belongs the most sublime similitude, in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

[13:16] Say, “Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?” Say, “GOD.” Say, “Why then do you set up besides Him masters who do not possess any power to benefit or harm even themselves?” Say, “Is the blind the same as the seer? Is darkness the same as the light?” Have they found idols besides GOD who created creations similar to His creations, to the point of not distinguishing the two creations? Say, “GOD is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Supreme.”

[55:3] Creator of the human beings.

[112:4] “None equals Him.

[2:112] Indeed, those who submit themselves absolutely to GOD alone, while leading a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord; they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

[3:19] The only religion approved by GOD is “Submission.” Ironically, those who have received the scripture are the ones who dispute this fact, despite the knowledge they have received, due to jealousy. For such rejectors of GOD’s revelations, GOD is most strict in reckoning.

It has been the religion of all creation for all the time. It is the only acceptable religion in the sight of God. God has rejected and has never authorized the worship of others alongside Himself.

[3:85] Anyone who accepts other than Submission as his religion, it will not be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter, he will be with the losers.
