No, it is not a matter of opinion. It is called grammar, and it is called a languiage that you do not seem to know but this has not stopped you from pontificatying about soemthing that is really beyond you. I did post a more extended explanation of the Arabic root sytem and the root SLM. I'm not sure why is has not posted.

I challenge you to prove me wrong.

You remind of your likes when they believe that the word Jihad really means strive to improve yourself. No, Jihad means holy war. There is another word from the root JHD and that is IJTIHAD which means strive to improve yourself. But again I find it sad that people like you that do not know Arabic pontificate about a question of grammar in a language that they do not know
