The following short article was initially posted on Al-Haadi, was then shared on hubbeilahi, then made its way to Islamic Teachings, then on to Muftisays, and now here… and the message goes way back to Rasulullah and will insha’Allah continue forward… so, where to next?
SubhanAllah, alhamdulillah! It is awesome to see how beauty spreads, ripples, reverberates… alhamdulillah.
A Muslim Submits
Islam is submission.
As Muslims we submit, surrender and hand over ourselves to the Divine command of Allah Ta‘ala and the perfect Sunnah of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
In our Imaan, we submit and surrender our intelligence and understanding to believe in Allah Ta‘ala and in the unseen, as explained to us by Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
In our Salaah, we submit and surrender our physical limbs and place them down before Allah Ta‘ala.
In fasting we submit and surrender our desire to eat and drink for the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala.
In Zakaat and qurbaani we submit and surrender our wealth for the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala.
In Haj we submit and surrender to the command of Allah Ta‘ala by sacrificing our health, wealth, time and homeland; and we present ourselves in the blessed lands in search of the grace and mercy of Allah Ta‘ala.
A Muslim is an embodiment of submission.
