Muslim and Islam are Arabic words. The English equivalent for those Arabic words are SUBMITTER and SUBMISSION respectively. In this English language the words Submitter and Submission express the descriptive meaning of this religion – Submission to God alone.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR SALVATION
[2:62 & 5:69] 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.
Thus, in the verses above, the Quran (The Final Testament)
spells out the basic requirements for salvation for any
human. Whatever a person might call his/her religion, he/she
is destined for Heaven if the above three criteria are met.
Thus a worshiper of God alone, when he/she comes across
the Quran will find nothing objectionable in it, as the
source of the Quran is God alone.
GOD DETERMINES TESTS FOR HUMANS
[29:2] Do the people think that they will be left to say,
“We believe,” without being put to the test?
It is God alone who determines which human is to be tested
by putting various tests across the human, including the
Quran or various verses in the Quran, the meaning of which
was not known before (Eg. “Over it is nineteen” or 3:81,
etc.). A worshiper of God alone which meets the above
criteria will always pass God’s test and accept God’s words
and BELIEVE what God states in His words in the Quran. A
rejector, disbeliever or a hypocrite will flunk the tests.
[2:155] We will surely test you through some fear, hunger,
and loss of money, lives, and crops. Give good news to the
SUBMITTER (or MUSLIM), RIGHTEOUS
[2:2-5] This scripture is infallible; a beacon for the
righteous; who believe in the unseen, observe the Contact
Prayers (Salat), and from our provisions to them, they give
to charity. And they believe in what was revealed to you,
and in what was revealed before you, and with regard to the
Hereafter, they are absolutely certain. These are guided by
their Lord; these are the winners.
The SUBMITTER (MUSLIM) makes NO DISTINCTION amongst GOD’S
[2:285] The messenger has believed in what was sent down to
him from his Lord, and so did the believers. They believe in
GOD, His angels, His scripture, and His messengers: “We
make no distinction among any of His messengers.” They
say, “We hear, and we obey. Forgive us, our Lord. To You
is the ultimate destiny.”
The submitter (muslim) BELIEVES God when God says that the
Quran is COMPLETE, PERFECT, FULLY DETAILED and the ONLY
[6:114] Shall I seek other than GOD as a source of law, when
He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? Those who
received the scripture recognize that it has been
revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor
[6:115] The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and
justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer,
[77:50,7:185] Which HADITH, other than this, do they uphold?
[39:23] GOD has revealed herein the BEST HADITH; a book that
is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and

TEACHER of the Quran.
[75:18-19] Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran.
Then it is we who will EXPLAIN it.
SUBMITTER (Muslim) and BELIEVER (Mu’men)
In verse 49:14-15, God gives us the definition of Submitter
and a Believer. A believer is one who has attained certainty
and has reached the status of no doubt. A submitter (muslim)
however, is allowed to have doubt.
[49:14-15] The Arabs said, “We are Mu’mens (believers).”
Say, “You have not believed; what you should say is, We are
Muslims (Submitters),’ until belief is established in your
hearts.” If you obey God and His messenger, He will not out
your works to waste. God is forgiver, Most Merciful.
Mu’mens (believers) are those who believe in God and His
messenger, then attain the status of having NO DOUBT
WHATSOEVER, and strive withe money and lives in the cause of
God. These are the truthful ones.
This marvelous separation of Muslim/Mu’men and the MECHANICS
of reaching the status of believer (explained below) assure
the potential Submitters (Muslims) that it is OK to have
doubts, but you must BELIEVE God’s words given above. One
can pose the favorite question of traditional muslims, “If
the Quran is complete, where do we find the details of
Salat?”. A true muslim (Submitter) will accept God’s
assertions that the Quran is COMPLETE and keep on following
the mechanics given below, even though the answer to the
Question will not be obvious at first.
A false muslim, on the other hand, will not accept God’s
assertion that the Quran is complete; but will accept the
assertion of others (parents, mullahs, scholars, elders,
other humans, etc.) that the Quran is not complete and that
we need sources other than the Quran like hadith/sunnah
attributed to the prophet against his will. This is flagrant
idolatry and rejection of what God states and DISBELIEVING
MECHANICS of becoming a BELIEVER after becoming a SUBMITTER.
[51:56] I did not create the jinns and the humans except to
worship Me alone.
[15:99] And worship your Lord, in order to attain certainty.
As the above verses states God created us for only one
purpose – to worship God ALONE. After becoming a SUBMITTER
and ACCEPTING and BELIEVING what God states in the Quran, we
need to worship God by practicing religious duties dictated
by God. Other than the shahaada dedicated to God alone
(“There is no god but God” or La ellaaha ella Allah), we
need to perform Contact prayers (Salat), Mandatory charity
(Zakat), Fasting and pilgrimage (if we can afford it). ALL
these religious practices have to be dedicated to God ALONE
– something the TRADITIONAL MUSLIMS fail to PERFORM
(following note covers this).
MIRACLES are then manifested for those who have attained
[2:118] Those who possess no knowledge say, “If only GOD
could speak to us, or some miracle could come to us!” Others
before them have uttered similar utterances; their minds
are similar. We do manifest the miracles for those who
have attained certainty.
[5:50] Is it the law of the days of ignorance that they seek
to uphold? Whose law is better than GOD’s for those who have
[30:60] Therefore, you shall steadfastly persevere – for
GOD’s promise is the truth – and do not be intimidated by
those who have not attained certainty.
GOD’s words or FABRICATOR’s words
All scriptures have the same first commandment – that you
shall not worship except God. We learn from the Quran that
all of Gods prophets/messengers, Jesus, Abraham, Joseph,
Moses, Muhammad, etc . . . preached the same message of
Submission – Worship God Alone.
However, every prophet’s message has been corrupted by God’s
Will after the prophet’s death. The Jews after Moses’s death
created Mishnah and Gemarrah and uphold them rather than the
TORAH (revealed word of God). In the city of Nicene 300
years after the death of Jesus, the concept of Trinity was
CREATED, and is now the primary source of a Christian’s
belief in defiance of the Bible which advocates the absolute
worship of God Alone. The Muslims 250 years after the death
of Muhammad CREATED Hadith and Sunnah, falsely attributed to
prophet Muhammad, and in defiance of the Quran. Today most
muslims have discarded the Quran in favor of Hadith and
The Quran assures that these fabrications are a test
for us. The nonbeliever will accept these fabrications while
the believer will reject them. The following verses are
expose those who give lip service to belief in the
Hereafter. Those who TRULY believe in the HEREAFTER will
uphold God ALONE, the Quran ALONE and reject sources of
religious law OUTSIDE the Quran.
[6:112] We have permitted the enemies of every prophet –
human and jinn devils – to inspire in each other fancy
words, in order to deceive. Had your Lord willed, they would
not have done it. You shall disregard them and their
[6:113] This is to let the minds of those who DO NOT believe
in the Hereafter LISTEN to such FABRICATIONS, and ACCEPT
them, and thus EXPOSE their REAL convictions.
[39:45] When GOD ALONE is mentioned, the hearts of those who
DO NOT BELIEVE in the Hereafter shrink with aversion. But
when others are mentioned beside Him, they become
