1. Foreword

The faith of the people of book (Judaism & Christianity) were instituted after the revelation of the Turah & Injil to Musa and Isa respectively.

The ‘Divine’ religion of Allah (Islam) was preached and practiced by all His prophets from Adam to Muhammad. From the beginning of the world to end, Islam (total submission to Allah) remains to be the only religion. 

None of the faithfuls carry any identity other than being a (Muslim). All other interfaith and/or sectarian tags (such as Jews, Christians, Sunni, Shia, etc) are nothing but an unnecessary and superfluous baggage. 

> ” Ibrahim was not a Jew, nor a Christian, but an upright Muslim; and he was not of polytheists”

(Imran-3: 67) 
1.1 Allah’s Friend-Ibrahim 

> ” And who is better in religion than he who resigns himself entirely to Allah, and is righteous, and follows the creed of Ibrahim, the upright? And Allah did take Ibrahim for a friend”

(Nisa-4: 125) 

2. The Brahimi Surrender

The root of the word ‘Surrender’ is (Islam): a complete submission to Allah. Ibrahim submitted to the will of Allah unconditionally, with a surety of the mind and purpose. He became a true Mslim in the perfect sense of the world. 

> ” And (remember) when his Lord said to him: Surrender! He said: I have surrendered myself to the Lord of the worlds”

(Baqarah-2: 131) 

3. The Religion of Ibrahim & his Descendents

> ” Or do you say that Ibrahim, Ismail, Ishaq, Yaqub and the tribes were Jews or Christians? Say (O Muhammad): Do you know better, or does Allah? Who is more unjust than he who conceals a testimony he has from Allah? Allah is not heedless of what you do”

(Baqarah-2: 140)

> ” Ibrahim was not a Jew, nor a Christian, but an upright Muslim; and he was not of polytheists”

(Imran-3: 67)

> ” And the same did Ibrahim enjoin on his sons, and so (did) Yaqub, saying: O my sons! Verily Allah has chosen the religion (Islam) for you, therefore you must not die save as Muslims”

(Baqarah-2: 132)

> ” Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and what has been sent down to us , and has been sent down to Ibrahim, and Ismail, and Ishaque, and Yaqub, and the tribes, and what was given (books) to Musa, and Isa, and the prophets from their Lord, we make no difference between any of them and we have surrendered to Him (we are Muslims)”

(Imran-3: 84) 

4. The Climax of Surrender (Sajdah:The Prostration)

> ” Do you not see that before Allah prostrate in adoration whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the animals>>>”

(Hajj-22: 18)

> ” And to Allah alone prostrate all those who are in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and (so do) their shadows in the morning and in evening”

(Rad-13: 15)

> ” Do they not see that all the things Allah has created cast their shadows to the right and to the left, prostrating in obeisance to Allah while they lie abased”

(Nahl-16: 48)

> ” To Allah prostrate in obeisance whatsoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth from among the (moving) creatures, and the angels (also do the same), and they do not show arrogance”

(Nahl-16: 49)

> ” And the herbs and the trees bow (to Him) in adoration”

(Rahman-55: 06)

> ” Verily only they believe in Our signs, who, when they are reminded, fall down prostrate and celebrate the praises of their Lord, and they do not become arrogant”

(Sajdah-32: 15) 

5. Ibrahim’s Test

> ” And (remember) when his Lord tried Ibrahim with certain words, and he fulfilled them>>>” 

(Baqarah-2: 124)

6. Ibrahim- The ‘Imam’

>>> ” He said : Verily, I make you an Imam, (leader) for mankind>>>”

(Baqarah-2: 124) 

7. Ibrahim & his Progeny’s Gratitude

> ” Our Lord! make us both (Muslims), submissive to you, and our progeny (make) a group submissive only to You>>>”

(Baqarah-2: 128) 

8.The Brahimi Prayer

> ” Our Lord! Raise up in them a messenger from among them who shall recite to them Your revelations , and teach them the book and the wisdom, and purify them. Verily, You and You (alone) are the mighty, the wise”

(Baqarah-2: 129) 

9. Allah’s acceptance of Ibrahim’s Prayer

> ” He it is who raised among the ummies (illiterates) a messenger from amongst them, who recites His signs to them, purifies them and teaches them the book (Quran) and the wisdom though they were aforetime indeed in manifest straying”

(Jumu’ah-62: 02) 

10. The completion of the Mission

>>>” This day, those who disbelieve have despaired of your religion, so fear them not, but fear Me, This day I have perfected for your your religion, and have completed My favours on you, and have chosen for you Islam (as your) religion>>>”

(Maidah-5: 03)


(i) The completion of Allah’s favours on the faithfulls and choosing (Islam) as their religion:

Reference: Ghadir Khum declaration, its acceptance and approval by the Lord (Allah): (Maidah 01,03,07&67) 

11. The holy Prophet leads faithfuls to the Ultimate: ‘The Surrender’

> ” Say (O Muhammad): As for me, my Lord has guided me to the right: an established right path: an established (right) religion , the faith of Ibrahim, the upright, and he was not of the polytheists”

(Anam-06: 162)

> ” Say: Verily my prayer and my sacrifice, my life and my death (all of them) are for Allah, the Lord of the worlds”

(Anam-06: 163)

> ” He has no associates, and so I am commanded, I am the first of the Muslims (those who submit to Allah)”

(Anam-06: 164)
