From the Editors of Submission.Org:
We have been witnessing the injustice and oppression done by terrorists taking the lives of innocent people, everywhere.. We have been deeply touched by the killing and the bloodshed that have been taken place by hands of humans all over the world. The evil behavior carried out by any radical individuals under the banner of the religion of Islam, (Submission to God alone), seeking political or social gain is strongly condemned in Quran. Teachings that promote aggression, oppression, violence and unjustified killing have no basis in Quran. Terrorism should not have any place on earth.
- Quran grants dignity, and freedom of choice to all mankind:
[Final Testament/Quran 17:70] We have honored the children of Adam, and provided them with rides on land and in the sea. We provided for them good provisions, and we gave them greater advantages than many of our creatures.
[Final Testament/Quran 2:256] There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.
[Final Testament/Quran 2:148] Each of you chooses the direction to follow; you shall race towards righteousness. Wherever you may be, GOD will summon you all. GOD is Omnipotent.
[Final Testament/Quran 88:21] You shall remind, for your mission is to deliver this reminder.
[Final Testament/Quran 88:22] You have no power over them.
[Final Testament/Final Testament/Quran 73:19] This is a reminder; whoever wills, let him choose the path to his Lord.
- God condemns oppression by the strongest language:
[Final Testament/Quran 2:191, 2:217] ....Oppression is worse than murder....
- God has made life sacred. Killing is absolutely prohibited except for self-defense and to fight back oppression:
[Final Testament/Quran 17:33] You shall not kill any person - for GOD has made life sacred - except in the course of justice. If one is killed unjustly, then we give his heir authority to enforce justice. Thus, he shall not exceed the limits in avenging the murder; he will be helped.
[Final Testament/Quran 4:29] O you who believe, do not consume each others' properties illicitly - only mutually acceptable transactions are permitted. You shall not kill yourselves. GOD is Merciful towards you.
[Final Testament/Quran 2:193] You may also fight them to eliminate oppression, and to worship GOD freely. If they refrain, you shall not aggress; aggression is permitted only against the aggressors.
[Final Testament/Quran 8:39] You shall fight them to ward off oppression, and to practice your religion devoted to GOD alone. If they refrain from aggression, then GOD is fully Seer of everything they do.
[Final Testament/Quran 2:191] You may kill those who wage war against you, and you may evict them whence they evicted you. Oppression is worse than murder. Do not fight them at the Sacred Masjid, unless they attack you therein. If they attack you, you may kill them. This is the just retribution for those disbelievers.
- Quran states that the only differentiating factor between humans is righteousness:
[Final Testament/Quran 49:13] O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant.
- Quran states that any one who believes in God, the Hereafter and leads a righteous life is granted salvation and forgiveness:
[Final Testament/Quran 2:62] 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 promotes tolerance to others irrespective of their religious background or lack thereof, as long as it is mutual:
[Final Testament/Quran 60:8] GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable.
[Final Testament/Quran 60:9] GOD enjoins you only from befriending those who fight you because of religion, evict you from your homes, and band together with others to banish you. You shall not befriend them. Those who befriend them are the transgressors.
[Final Testament/Quran 8:61] If they resort to peace, so shall you, and put your trust in GOD. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.
- Our God is one and the same. The Creator. Master of this whole universe. The One who sent down to us all prophets and messengers with guidance and knowledge to worship Him alone and lead a righteous life:
[Final Testament/Quran 2:136] 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 and Jesus, and all the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction among any of them. To Him alone we are submitters."
We, submitters to God alone, are adding our voices to all those who cherish the human values and rights granted to man-kind by the One God, the Creator. We definitely share with you the hate of all what the so-called Muslims all over the world are practicing in the name of Islam. We'll keep declaring, with a very loud and firm voice that Quran and this great religion of Abraham (Submission), both, condemn all kinds, forms, and names of unjustified killings and bloodshed. We call upon Christians, Jews, Muslims and all the believers in God to verify the truth about the religion of Submission (Islam) through this most comprehensive website where we have the most clear, accurate and modern translation of Quran by Rashad Khalifa, Ph.D.
Knowledge is the cure for one's ignorance.
"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
[Bible, John 8:32]
"You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them." [Quran, 17:36]
The time has now come that we can not remain silent no more. The time has come that we should take action and try our best to prevent terrorism in the world. We hope to bring love, peace and tolerance into this world based on respect, compassion, and a solid foundation of knowledge.
May God bless all who strive for peace.
