This is the reality of Islam: it encompasses all past messages, maintains loyalty to all past messengers. It shows that the Divine faith is one, and returns all religions to their common source. It implies believing in all these messages as a whole, as they have all been given by God.
It is important to note here that the first of these two verses states first the belief in God and what has been revealed to the Muslims, i.e. the Qur’ān, and what has been revealed to all previous messengers. Its concluding comment on this encompassing belief is: “To Him do we surrender ourselves.” This acknowledgement of submission to God is very significant. It comes after it has been explained that Islam means total surrender, submission and obedience as well as the implementation of a certain system and a well-defined law.
