A Universal Message
Cont’d from page 1
Prophet Muhammad, instead of upholding the Quran alone. These teachings, which are called Hadith and Sunnah, became an integral part of the religion. Whereas the Quran is God’s word, a consistent, reliable source, full of wisdom and without any nonsense, the hadiths attributed to Prophet Muhammad are collections of man’s word about 200 years after his death. They are full of hearsay, nonsense, contradictions and unnecessary details to the extent of making the religion a burden for people.
Do you have another book to uphold? In it, do you find anything you want? (68:37-8)
Unfortunately, as a result of abandoning God’s revelations in their scriptures in favor of human-made religious teachings, the people of the scriptures today are divided into many sectarian groups, each claiming to lead the way to salvation. Therefore, it is time for the people of God’s scriptures to go back to the basics of their religion. There is only one true God to worship, and we should all submit to Him alone!
The beauty of Submission is that it is universal. God gives everyone an opportunity to make it, regardless of what they call themselves.
Submission: The Only Religion
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. (2:112)
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. (3:19)
a Jewish Submitter
I ask that you pray for me in my quest to discover Gods truth in His word. I am studying the Quran translated by Rashad Khalifa and I continue to read it as a Jew seeking Gods true place for me and my people. Being able to step away from what I am comfortable with is difficult and this would mean leaving the ministry I have created and all I have come to believe is true, but as I continue to read and open my eyes I realize that I do not want to be with those who disbelieve, rather I want to be a Jew who submits to God and His absolute authority. I understand that TRUE Judaism is submission to God and that there is but only one religion acceptable to God.
Please pray that I am able to take the final leaps into understanding my true role and my place, even if that means shutting down all I have built and perhaps instead dedicate myself to building a community of submitters and dedicating myself to God’s cause here in my community.
As I quoted the Quran before,
“We have given Moses the scripture—do not harbor any doubt about meeting Him—and we made it a guide for the Children of Israel. We appointed from among them imams who guided in accordance with our commandments, because they steadfastly persevered and attained certainty about our revelations" (33:23-24) I pray that I can have my eyes open to be a guide for my people to submit to God and His one approved religion.
Blessings to all.

Ed.’s note: This is a testimony that there are submitters in every religion of God (See 3:113).
Greetings/comments from a Submitter
The peace and the blessings of God be upon you and your family Inshallah (God willing).
Thank you and all of the Brothers and Sisters at Masjid Tucson for continuing to preach and teach the truth. This past thanksgiving I became extremely thankful for the fact that I am a submitter and a believer, and that I am in fellowship with all submitters worldwide.
Thank you for continuing to send me the newsletters, and the weekly reminders. Remember I am your contact in Tampa Florida anytime you need me for anything, don't hesitate to contact me. The newsletters have proven to be a blessing to me and something that gives me fellowship even though I don't live in Tucson Arizona. How are things with you and the others in Tucson? Sometimes we simply don't know just how extremely fortunate we are to have received the truth from Dr. Rashad Khalifa.
I believe that Dr. Khalifa was a man with the pure message for the worship of God alone, using Quran alone. Last month I had my website shut down because of someone spamming my server. My web host took the site off of the internet, and I couldn't access it … After almost two weeks I finally got everything fixed, then they put the website back on the internet. I had 5 websites closed down, 4 of which were real article directories, plus the quranaloneislam.org website.
Once again thank you for everything and write back to me whenever you can...Oh by the way, I keep stopping by your website for continuing education in the ONLY true path to God which is the religion of submission.
I have to go for now, so until I hear from you God bless all of you Inshallah...
