Surrendering to God: Understanding Islam in the Modern World
The word Muslim is commonly used like a brand name: One is either Muslim or not. In this book, Tatari expounds on the literal meaning of being a Muslim, which is the verbal noun submitter. She explains that we are a submitter (Muslim) if and when we submit our mind, heart, and actions to God’s Will. From this perspective, this book appeals not only to those who profess a Muslim identity, but to all who strive to find answers to their existential questions and submit to their Creator.
