Who Are We?

Cont’d from page 3

You may already be a “Submitter”

How can we know if a person qualifies to be called a Submitter? The minimum criteria to be a Submitter in the sight of God are given in the following verses.

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. (Quran 2:62, 5:69)

God tells us that Submitters are exceptional. They do not follow the crowd that  is following conjecture instead of the truth.

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. (3:113)

If you obey the majority of people on earth, they will divert you from the path of GOD. They follow only conjecture; they only guess. (6:116)

Most of them follow nothing but conjecture, and conjecture is no substitute for the truth. GOD is fully aware of everything they do. (10:36)

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

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.” (3:84)

You cannot guide the ones you love. GOD is the only One who guides in accordance with His will, and in accordance with His knowledge of those who deserve the guidance. (28:56)

Submitters – Join the email list

Let us hear from you to join us for networking of submitters by email with weekly reminders from the Quran.

We would like every submitter, whether receiving our newsletters or not, to be included in the email list. God willing you can join the list by sending an email and indicating that you want to be in the weekly reminder list. If you want to make it a really short email, just write “weekly reminder” in the subject line and send it.

If you also include in the email the city and state that you live in, God willing we can compile this information and use it for the submitters without a community who are asking to communicate with other submitters in their area.

Be proactive. Make it happen, God willing.

...GOD does not change the condition of any people unless they themselves make the decision to change….(13:11)

 

God ALONE Worthy of Worship

[27:60]  Who is the One who created the heavens and the earth? Who is the One who sends down to you from the sky water, whereby we produce gardens full of beauty - you could not possibly manufacture its trees? Is it another god with GOD? Indeed, they are people who have deviated.

[27:61]  Who is the One who made the earth habitable, caused rivers to run through it, placed on it mountains, and created a barrier between the two waters? Is it another god with GOD? Indeed, most of them do not know.

[27:62]  Who is the One who rescues those who become desperate and call upon Him, relieves adversity, and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is it another god with GOD? Rarely do you take heed.

[27:63]  Who is the One who guides you in the darkness of land and sea? Who is the One who sends the winds with good news, signaling His mercy? Is it another god with GOD? Most exalted is GOD, above having any partner.

[27:64]  Who is the One who initiates the creation, then repeats it? Who is the One who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Is it another god with GOD? Say, "Show me your proof, if you are truthful."
