Submitters Perspective

Terror of Islam

Cont’d from page 2

The way of True Islam (Submission) is resorting to pardon, forgetting, and forgiving; striving to emulate the attributes of the Most Compassionate (Quran 7:199, 64:14). Even in the course of justice, patience is advocated instead of revenge: “…if you resort to patience (instead of revenge), it would be better for the patient ones. You shall resort to patience - and your patience is attainable only with God’s help” (Quran 16:126-7, 42:43).

The genuine strength of character that yields patience is encouraged in response to every interaction: “Not equal is the good response and the bad response. You shall resort to the nicest possible response. Thus, the one who used to be your enemy, may become your best friend” (Quran 41:34). This conduct is a true test of the unconditional surrender of the soul, the abstention of ego, and

the recognition that all dignity belongs to God (Quran 4:139).
Those who claim superiority in the name of their religion or abuse the way of True Islam to hurt other faiths are blinded to the light of unity and equality in the Quran: “Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who believes in God, and believes in the Last Day, and leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve” (Quran 2:62).
The love of God is not reserved for names such as the Protestant, Shi’ite, or Orthodox who remain divided by clinging to an exclusive belief of guaranteed “salvation”. God’s infinite love flows to the charitable, righteous, benevolent, equitable, and just; those who submit a complete submission (Quran 3:134, 3:76, 5:13, 5:42, 49:9, 2:208).

To Whom It May Concern,
I visited this particular website and downloaded the file that opened up to the work of Mr. Rashad Khalifa titled "Quran, Hadith and Islam". It really opened up my soul and I wish to be guided by this compelling "revelation" and I want to put God above and beyond everything else… Joehandi S.

Assalamu alaikum,

I am Muslim, American born, a convert from Christianity and I share the same points of view expressed in your "site" and very happy to find others who realize how divisive and destructive it is for Muslims to place a collection of stories (hadith) on par with the Glorious Qur'an with each Islamic sect having their own collection. Ridiculous stories almost too embarrassing to recount have been attributed to The Messenger of God and all of these concocted hundreds of years after his death…

Dear Madam or Sir,
I have recently visited your website, and I would like to applaud your efforts to educate people (Muslim and non-Muslim). Born and raised Muslim, I have always given great value to the understanding of the reasoning behind our religion. I believe it is our duty to educate ourselves about why we believe what we believe. It is crucial to promote knowledge and refute ignorance. It is absolutely critical for Muslims to maintain strong ties with God through full conviction and confidence that His Gracious Message is the Truth.

I believe and hope that your efforts bring useful knowledge to readers all over the world. As a reader of your website, I am deeply thankful for your contribution and pray God to bless your actions and commitment to the proper delivery of His message.

God Bless you.
Jawad S.
