Islam means peace,
Continuing his reintroduction of Islam to the Western society, he states that Islam is a religion that calls for “peace” and rejects violence. One of the new theories that many people are trying to sell is that the actual term, “Islam” derives from the same root of the word “salam” (which, in Arabic, means peace).
There are others who say different, though: “Islam” could be derived from the word “salama” (which, in Arabic, translates to “submission”).
Who knows? They may be derived from the same word.
