Islam: Submission to God
President of Bosnia 'lija 'li Izetbegovich

[Author is the President of the Republic of Bosnia-Herzevogina. This
essay is excerpted from his 1984 book Islam Between East and West,
American Trust Publications, second edition, 1989]

"Nature has determinism, man has destiny. The acceptance of this
destiny is the supreme and final idea of Islam. Destiny —does it
exist and what form does it take? Let us look at our own lives and
see what has remained of our most precious plans and the dreams of
our youth? Do we not come helplessly into the world faced with our
own personality, with higher or lower intelligence, with attractive
or repulsive looks, with an athletic or dwarfish stature, in a king's
place or in a beggar's hut, in a tumultuous or peaceful time, under
the reign of a tyrant or a noble prince, and generally in
geographical and historical circumstances about which we have not
been consulted? How limited is what we call our will, how tremendous
and unlimited is our destiny!

Man has been cast down upon this world and made dependent on many
facts over which he has no power. His life is influenced by both very
remote and very near factors. During the Allied invasion of Europe in
1944, there was, for a moment, a general disturbance in radio
communications which could have been fatal for the operations under
way. Many years later, the disturbance was explained as a huge
explosion in the Andromeda constellation, several million light years
away form our planet. One type of catastrophic earthquake on the
earth is due to changes on the sun's surface. As our knowledge of the
world grows, so does our realization that we will never be complete
masters of our fate. Even supposing the greatest possible progress of
science, the amount of factors under our control will always be
insignificant compared to the amount of those beyond it. Man is not
proportional to the world. He and his lifetime are not the measuring
units of the pace of things. This is the cause of man's eternal
insecurity, which is psychologically reflected in pessimism, revolt,
despair, apathy, or in submission to God's will.

Islam arranges the world by means of upbringing, education, and laws.
That is its narrower scope; submission to God is the broader one.

Individual justice can never be fully satisfied within the conditions
of existence. We can follow all Islamic rules which, in their
ultimate result, should provide us with the "happiness in both
worlds"; moreover, we can follow all other norms, medical, social and
moral but, because of the terrific entanglement of destinies, desires
and accidents, we can still suffer in body and soul. What can console
a mother who has lost her only son? Is there any solace for a man who
has been disabled in an accident?

We ought to become conscious of our human condition. We are immersed
in situation. I can work to change my situation, but there are
situations which are essentially unchangeable, even when their
appearance takes a new look, and when their victorious power is
veiled: l must die; I must suffer; I must fight; I am a victim of
chance; I get inevitably entangled in guilt. These basic conditions
of our existence are referred to as "the border situations."
Sure, "man is bound to improve everything that can be improved in
this world. After that, children will still go on dying unjustly even
in the most perfect of societies. Man, at best, can only give himself
the task of reducing arithmetically the sufferings of this world.
Still, injustice and pain will continue and, however limited, they
will never cease to be blasphemy."

Submission to God or revolt—these are two different answers to the
same dilemma.

In submission to God, there is some of every (human) wisdom except
one: shallow optimism. Submission is the story of human destiny, and
that is why it is inevitably permeated with pessimism: for "every
destiny is tragic and dramatic if we come down to its bottom."

Recognition of destiny is a moving reply to the great human theme of
inevitable suffering. It is the recognition of life as it is and a
conscious decision to bear and to endure. In this point, Islam
differs radically from the superficial idealism and optimism of
European philosophy and its naive story about "the best of all
possible worlds." Submission to God is a mellow light coming from
beyond pessimism.

As a result of one's recognition of his impotence and insecurity,
submission to God itself becomes a new potency and a new security.
Belief in God and His providence offers a feeling of security which
cannot be made up for with anything else. Submission to God does not
imply passivity as many people wrongly believe. In fact, "all heroic
races have believed in destiny." Obedience to God excludes obedience
to man. It is a new relation between man and God and, therefore,
between man and man.

It is also a freedom which is attained by following through with
one's own destiny. Our involvement and our struggle are human and
reasonable and have the token of moderation and serenity only through
the belief that the ultimate result is not in our hands. It is up to
us to work, the rest is in the hands of God.

Therefore, to properly understand our position in the world means to
submit to God, to find peace, not to start making a more positive
effort to encompass and to overcome everything, but rather a negative
effort to accept the place and the time of our birth, the place and
the time that are our destiny and God's will. Submission to God is
the only human and dignified way out of the unsolvable senselessness
of life, a way out without revolt, despair, nihilism, or suicide. It
is a heroic feeling not of a hero, but of an ordinary man who has
done his duty and accepted his destiny.

Islam does not get its name from its laws, orders, or prohibitions,
nor from the efforts of the body and soul it claims, but from
something that encompasses and surmounts all that: from a moment of
cognition, from the strength of the soul to face the times, from the
readiness to endure everything that an existence can offer, from the
truth of submission to God. Submission to God, thy name is Islam!"
