EtymologyEdit

Borrowed around 1615 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".
