The Meaning of Islam

Posted by Parsin on June 20, 2008


Basic meaning: Islam has taken its root from the word Selm. Selm means being without any physical and spiritual , bodily and mental, outward and inward disorder.

Islam: The word Selm changes its form to Islam in chapter “Efa’ l”. Chapter Efa’ l is always used to make words transitive. So we can define the word Islam in this way:

“Keep yourself and the others from any outward and inward disease or from physical Or spiritual disorders.”

Salam : The person who is purred and freed from any deficiency or disorder. This word has been brought up as one of God’s names. In peoples meeting saying salam [Hello] in fact is a kind of health wish for the other.

Moslem: A person who tries to retire himself and others from physical and spiritual Deficiency in his relation with others.

Taslim: The person who becomes danger less in his relation with the others and doesn’t harm or injure anybody.

With reference to word Islam in Quaran’s texts in “Al – e – Imran ” ‘s surah in 91st Versus it is said that:

” ا ن الدین عند ا لله الا سلام ”

“Truly, the perfect Religion in the sight of Allah is Islam”

In the 79th versus in the same surah it is said that:

” قل آ منا با لله و ما انزل علی ابراهیم و اسماعیل و اسحا ق و یعقوب و الاسباط و

ما اوتی موسی و عیسی و النبیو ن من ربهم ، لا نفرق بین احدِ منهم و نحن له مسلمون ”

“Say [o, Messengers] we believe in Allah and in what has been sent down To us and what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isshaq, Yaqub and The sons of Yaqub , and what was given to Mussa , Issa and to other Messengers from their creator and Nurturer, we consider no Discrimination between one and another among them and to Allah we are Submitted. “

    1- In Etymology one can always fix varieties of interpretations! a good example:
    Zalm or Zelm, an avestan term for Semitic and acording to Avesta sons of Zalm…
    The “Z” in Avestan Zalm changed to “H” and late Sasani era “Heal” or “hal” was the word. Heal or Hal, hol, means HEALTH. In Scandinavian languages Helse is the word.
    The Avestan ZALM means “A one who seeks imunity. A story about eldest Son of King Fereidun who name was Zelm ( Zal in later modern persian ) who is indeed offspring of all semitic folk groups is such: He was smart and inteligent! He would often make his own enemy dependant on protecting his “imunity” so when ones enemy is ones imunity protector and his life is owing to exist because of this protection, who else could pose danger to Zalm?

    Such a good smart trick by Zalm associated his name to both health, imunity and smartness!
    Even to this day we can see Arabs and jewish well being is protected by their worse enemy!

    The story of Islam is not new associated with sem, chem, sam , zalm, and so on……
    Can you make 1% muslims understand what you interpret? you have done a good deed to humanity!

    And by the have you heard Christians sing “HEAL” the WORLD? and many other cultures and languages too, this HEAL is well connected to christian term when nearly half of middle east were christians and were not turned into islam by beduines and their sward and varies forms of forcing……THINK DEEPER !

  8. There is a virtual key board accompanying the incredibly attractive touch sensitive display
    screen. The only way that you can save on your phone and case purchase is to find a case that is
    strong and durable. It has been predicted that these smartphones will
    become a necessity for the blind in the next few years.
