Islam is Not in the Quran

The Quranic concept of Islam is a meaning or a description rather than a name or a title. It is an abstract noun that describes the state of mind of anyone who recognizes God’s absolute authority, and reaches a conviction that God alone possesses all power; no other entity possesses any power or control independent of Him. The logical consequence of such a realization is to submit to the Lord by devoting one’s life to serve Him alone.

Islam literally means "peacefulness" or to be in a "state of peace", this is a spiritual state of mind and not a title of a religion that belongs to a specific group of people. Anyone who submits and serves the one true God without idolizing other entities is a believer by definition according to the Quran.

This state of mind basically conforms with God’s one and only message He delivered to mankind through all of His messengers since Noah; worship God alone and avoid idolatry. Based on that, one can safely conclude that this same exact message has been in existence way before the time of Muhammad. All God’s messengers, since Noah, devoted their lives to serve God alone.The assertion that Islam is a religion comes from the hadith literature. This literature, which has been written about 200 years after Muhammad, is the true foundation of the black-cube-worshipping Arab religion that we know as "Islam".

Ultimately, the Islamic religion is no different from all the other religions and cults (your religion will not save you on the Day of Judgement). The Quran is not, as widely claimed, the foundation of the religion of Islam:

Like Moses and Jesus, Muhammad never knew anything about any religion called Islam. The enemies of Muhammad have distorted his words (through the texts of Hadith) to create an Arab-centric pagan cult that today brings in billions of dollars to the Saudi tourism industry (Watch: Muhammad Was Not From Mecca).​We are told in the Qur'an about those that will receive their reward without fear:

"Surely those who believe; and those who are Jewish, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever whom believes in God and the Last Day and does good works; they will have their reward with their Lord, and there is no fear upon them, nor will they grieve." (Qur'an 2:62)
