Happiness is
Submission to God Alone

Cont’d from page 2

Yet the fact remains that this is a battle for real estate, not a war between two faiths. Islam and Judaism revere the same prophetic lineage, back to Abraham, and no amount of bullets or barbed wire can change that….

Islam encourages the pursuit of religious freedom. The Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock is not the world’s first story of religious emigration. Muhammad and his little band of 100 followers fled religious persecution, too, from Mecca in the year 622. They only survived by going to Madinah, an oasis a few hundred miles north, where they established a new community based on a religion they could only practice secretly back home….

All in all, there seems to be a deep resonance between Islam and the United States. Although one is a world religion and the other is a sovereign nation, both are traditionally very strong on individual responsibility….

Who knows? Perhaps it won’t be long now before words like salat (Muslim prayer) and Ramadan join

karma and Nirvana in Webster’s Dictionary, and Muslims take their place in America’s mainstream.

Ed’s note: It is a Quranic prophecy that "Submission" is destined to prevail.

[9:33, 61:9] He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, and will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.

Psalm 23.

The Lord is my shepherd;
I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me to water in places of repose;
He renews my life;
He guides me in right paths
as befits His name.
Though I walk through a valley of deepest darkness;
I fear no harm, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff- they comfort me.

You spread a table for me in full view of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
my drink is abundant.
Only goodness and steadfast love shall pursue me
all the days of my life
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
for many long years

As-salaamu Alaikum

My brothers and sisters, just a short notation to say thanks for your faithful and complimentary issues of Submitters Perspective. Please give my salutations to your community Masjid Tucson.

…I have been practicing Islam just since 1997, but MashaAllah, [God] has blessed me to have taken my [true] Shahadah…: To come to understand the truth as the practice of Islam based on the Quran, not Hadithism.

I place my trust in Allah that He keep me on the straight path, guide me to live up to my Muslim name, and all praise to Him for bringing me out of the stages of darkness, deaf, dumb, and blind.

I find your articles illuminating: It helps my growth and understanding; clears up or illuminates the truth to religion “Islam” and other religions and innovations and traditions that mere mortals have imposed. ….

You have given me the understanding and a guide to practice Islam, the truth, and enabled me to advise on the truth as Allah has given us….

May Allah reward you all, and admit you to Paradise for your faithful devotion in spreading His true faith: And please continue, inshaAllah.

May Allah’s protection be with you….
