Etymology

From Arabic مُسْلِمٌ (muslimun, one who submits), the active participle[1] of أسْلَمَ (he submitted), verb form IV from the triliteral root س ل م (s-l-m), "to be whole, intact". The verbal noun إسْلامٌ (ʾislāmun) means literally "submission". In a religious sense, al-Islām translates to "faith, piety", and Muslim to "one who has (religious) faith or piety".
