Criteria for being a muslim

Rizwan Ahmad of islamic-research.orgis fond of asking thought provoking questions and last night he asked:

Is there a criteria for being a Muslim, if so, what is it?
I particularly like Charles Lohman’s reply:
Criteria #1 is God!
Criteria #2 is Between you and God!
Criteria #3 – Repeat 1 through 2 in a circular way

I have never seen a more Quranic response than this. Indeed there really ISN’T any criteria except your personal experience with Allah. This is confirmed by Q 19/95:And all of them are coming to Him on the Day of Resurrection alone
