EtymologyEdit

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