Surrendering to God : Understanding Islam in the Modern Age
Tatari presents a unique understanding of Islam, rooted in the rich tradition of Islamic history and scholarship, as well as contemporary exegeses of the Qur’an. The word Muslim is commonly used like a brand name: One is either a 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 one is a submitter (aka. Muslim) if and when she is surrendering her mind, heart, and actions to God’s will. The book engages all intellectuals who seek a deeper knowledge of Islam. It offers insights into the worldview presented by Islam to common theological, spiritual, and social issues and existential questions.
