Happiness is
Submission to God Alone

What is Submission?
Unity of All Submitters
Righteous Jews & Christians

Although the word “Submitter” is the English equivalent of the Arabic word “Muslim,” and the word “Submission” is the English equivalent of the Arabic word “Islam,” the underlying implication of these words is very profound, and far from the superficial meanings that are traditionally understood or used.

A Submitter can be defined as a person who submits to the will of God. The state of Submission, which can only take place between the person and God Almighty, is considered to be the only acceptable form of worship by God. (3:19, 85). Therefore, Submission is not just a name of a religion; rather it describes one’s devotion to God alone.

Submission is a religion whereby one recognizes God’s absolute authority, and reaches a conviction that only God possesses all power; no other entity possesses any power that is independent of Him. The natural result of such a realization is to devote one’s life and one’s worship absolutely to God alone. This is the First Commandment in all the scriptures, including the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Final Testament (The Quran).

Abraham was a submitter to God alone. So were Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. All God’s prophets and messengers were Submitters. They all preached the same basic message of worshiping only God without idolizing anything or anyone beside Him.

[3:67]  Abraham was neither Jewish, nor Christian; he was a monotheist submitter. He

never was an idol worshiper.

We learn from the Quran that while every religion has been corrupted by innovations, traditions, and false, idolatrous doctrines, there may be “Submitters” within every religion. There may be Submitters who are Christian by association, or Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, or anything else. These Submitters, collectively, constitute the only religion acceptable to God. All Submitters who are devoted to God alone, and do not set up any idols beside God, are redeemed into God's eternal kingdom.

[2:62]  Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who (1) believes in GOD, and (2) believes in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

[3:113]  They are NOT ALL THE SAME; among the followers of the scripture, there are those who are righteous. They recite GOD's revelations through the night, and they fall prostrate.

God knows who is a Submitter in heart, and guides the individual accordingly to His path. 

[3:84] Say, “We believe in GOD, and in what was sent down to us, and in what was sent down to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and in what was given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction among any of them. To Him alone we are submitters.”

Let us hear from you to join us for networking of submitters....

A Submitter’s Prayer

Dear God,

You are the Greatest. The most Forgiving, the most Understanding. You are the only Lord to whom all Kingship belongs. My Helper and my Protector, You never fail to astound. My life is Yours; I am Yours. My heart beats for You and my mind thinks for You. All, my dear Lord, is for You.

I’m sorry I am imperfect, but all perfection is Yours. I regret my shortcomings, but after all I am only a human, while You are the only Great God, to whom all things bow down. Your infinite mercy runs parallel to my desperation, for I am desperate for your approval—desperate for You.  I seek You night and day. I devote all of my being to You, knowing that no other is more worthy. I pray for the strength and patience to deserve You. I pray for the persistence and guidance that can only come from You. 

I am your loyal servant. Imperfect as I may be, I only seek to perfect my worship to You alone. My dear Master, you are all I have, all I want, all I need. Please stay with me, please let me continue loving You, but above all, please, let me deserve You..
