The Jesuits Rekindled the Knights Templar Connection to Islam !
The Arabic term “Islam” itself is usually translated as “submission“; submission of desires to the will of God. It comes from the term “aslama”, which means “to surrender” or “resign oneself”. The Arabic word salaam (سلام) (“Peace”) has the same root as the word Islam.
Lesser educated Muslims sometimes claim that the root word of Islam is “al-Salaam,” which is “peace” in Arabic.
The truth is different. An Arabic word only has one root. The root word for Islam is “al-Silm,” which means “submission” or “surrender.” There is no disagreement about this among Islamic scholars. al-Silm (submission) does not mean the same thing as al-Salaam (peace), otherwise they would be the same word.
Submission and peace can be very different concepts, even if a form of peace is often brought about through forcing others into submission. As the modern-day Islamic scholar, Ibrahim Sulaiman, puts it, “Jihad is not inhumane, despite its necessary violence and bloodshed, its ultimate desire is peace which is protected and enhanced by the rule of law.”
Why do Muslims try to mislead the word with their stories of “islam means peace”?
Is it a deliberate lie on their part or they do not know the true meaning of the word – definition of their own religion?
