The word "Islam" is an infinitive with the root letters of "س ل م", the root letters mean healthy and devoid of an defects and corruption, but the infinitive means surrendering and obeying one's commands with no opposition. [1]

Reference! The following will not be accepted as evidence:

1. Your Mullah told you so

2. Zakir Naik said so

3. Urdu books say so

4. The ignorant Ahmad Deedat said so

5. The ignorant Maududi (sp?) said so

The following will be accepted as evidence:

1. Ibn Manzur Lisan al-Arab dictionary

2. Tafsir al-Tabari

3. Tafsir ibn Kathir

4. Tafsir al-Qurtubi

I will be waiting
