The first issue of the Submitters Perspective was published in February 1985. Dr. Rashad Khalifa was the editor of the newsletter. He was the one who established Masjid Tucson and the United Submitters International organization.

Originally called "Muslim Perspective," the newsletter was renamed "Submitters Perspective" with the December 1989 issue. Dr. Khalifa's life in this world ended on January 31, 1990, when he was martyred inside the masjid before dawn (at the time, Dr. Khalifa had already published the March 1990 in advance).

On-line and in paper form, work on the Submitter's Perspective continues and is an important link for Submitters around the world. The newsletter presents articles based on the Quran (the true "Islamic" perspective) with topics of interests relating to the religion of Submission, the mathematical miracle in the Quran, current events, and submission to God alone. Note: While submitters review articles prior to publishing, as humans we may make mistakes. The ultimate reference and only source of religious guidance is the Quran (5:48; 6:19, 38, 114-115). God willing we each examine material in light of the Quran.
