Submission to the will of Almighty God in order to get internal peace.
Surrender This is understood from a verse in the Holy Quran where Allah says: Sahih International Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them – out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah , then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account. ( 3 : 19 )
This submission requires a fully conscious and willing effort to submit to the one Almighty God. SubmissionSahih International But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission. ( 4: 65 ) Total submission is required after the surrender and some terms have to be set forth by Allah to be understood by the Muslim. There can be no option in the matter as Allah says in another verse, Sahih International The Day their faces will be turned about in the Fire, they will say, “How we wish we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger.” ( 33:66 ) Whatever Allah and His Messenger have set out as being the Way of Islam is incumbent on the believer, man or woman to follow completely. One must consciously and conscientiously give oneself to the service of Allah. Sincerity & Purity of Intention The heart must be clean and honest. Allah is Pure and He only accepts pure. Narrated `Umar bin Al-Khattab: The Prophet (?) said, “The (reward of) deeds depend on intentions, and every person will get the reward according to what he intends. So, whoever migrated for Allah and His Apostle, then his migration will be for Allah and His Apostle, and whoever migrated for worldly benefits or for marrying a woman, then his migration will be for what he migrated for.” (See Hadith No. 1, Vol. 1) Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 2529 In-book reference : Book 49, Hadith 14 USC-MSA web (English) reference : Vol. 3, Book 46, Hadith 706 (deprecated numbering scheme) Sincere intention is the key to the success or failure of the Muslim. All that he or she does must be for the sake of Allah and not for the chance to show off or call attention to himself or herself. If there is even a speck of pride or showing off for the people instead of doing for Allah, then the whole of the matter will be rejected by Allah on the Day of Judgment. This is due to the fact that Allah wants purity of intention and purity in deed. Peace “Peace” is mentioned 58 times in the Holy Quran and it is certainly the most sought after condition for the life of every human on earth and hereafter. Sahih International He is Allah , other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Superior. Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him. ( 59:23 ) We are all striving to achieve peace and tranquility in our lives. So as soon as he or she has totally surrendered and submitted and obeyed Allah, in complete sincerity and as a result has achieved total and complete peace in this life and in the next.
