Etymology edit

Borrowed around 1615 from Arabicمُسْلِم(muslim, one who submits), the active participle of ⁧أَسْلَمَ(ʔaslama, he submitted), verb form IV from the triliteral root ⁧س ل م(s-l-m), "to be whole, intact". The verbal noun ⁧إسْلام(ʔislām) means literally "submission". In a religious sense, ⁧الْإِسْلَام(al-ʔislām) translates to "faith, piety", and ⁧مُسْلِم(muslim) to "one who has (religious) faith or piety".
