Islam means submission and obedience to God.

To entrust yourselves completely to God is islam.

To relinquish all claims to absolute freedom and independence and to follow God’s will is islam.

If you bring all the affairs of your lives under God, you are muslims

If you keep any of the affairs in your own hands or entrust them to someone other than God, you are not muslims.


Such total surrender to God what makes one a muslim.

Let us be Muslims, Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi
