Surrendering to God

 Surrendering to God : Understanding Islam in the Modern Age,
*[A5+] Paperback - 176 pages,
by Eren Tatari,
Published by Tughra Books, Turkey.

Description :

The author 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 Muslim or not. In this book, Tatari expounds on the literal meaning of being a Muslim, which is the verbal noun for a 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.

The book offers insights into the worldview presented by Islam to common theological, spiritual and social issues and existential questions.
