salam my friend

i thank u for the response, and i am in total agreement with your statement "submission to the will of Allah", but in disagreement with your sayings of (Dr Naik's assertion that it means "peace" is wrong.)

you whr well on track with ur breaking down of the word 'salam', but the only thing u failed to point out was the linkage btw the word 'salam' and 'islam' ( i hope its a honest mistake....lol)

the word 'islam' is a derivative of the word salam, and if u agree to the defination of salam as peace, then i think its just a matter of opinion, to the statement "islam means peace"

as the Dr. clearly said "Islam is derived from the word 'salaam' which means peace"....the WORD, the WORD, the WORD........salam which means peace!

thank you

am out!

Submitting....
