The Way of Islam
Islaam or Al-Islaam (الإسلام) to a follower(Muslim) is Deen (دين), a judgement or a method. The Arabic word Islaam itself is a verbal noun originating from the triliteral root Seen-laam-meem which forms a large class of words mostly relating to concepts of submissiveness, wholeness, safeness and peace.In most contexts it means "voluntary submission to The Divine". Muslim is a Noun for an adherent of Islaam, it is the active participle of the same verb (Sa-la-ma) of which Islaam is the infinitive. Believers demonstrate submission to The Divine by serving The Divine, following Divine commands, and rejecting polytheism. The word sometimes has distinct connotations in its various occurrences in the Qur'aan. In some verses, there is stress on the quality of Islaam as an internal conviction: "Whomsoever The Divine desires to guide, He opens his heart to Islaam." (Qur'aan 6:125)
Other verses connect Islaam and deen (usually translated as "religion" or "judgement"): "Today, I have perfected your religion (deen) for you; I have completed My blessing upon you; I have approved Islaam for your religion.". Still others describe Islaam as an action of returning to The Divine—more than just a verbal affirmation of faith. In the Hadith of Gabriel(S.Bukhari 1:2:48, S.Muslim), Islaam is presented as one part of a triad that includes Imaan (faith), and Ihsaan (excellence), where Islaam is defined theologically as Tawhid, historically by asserting that Muhammad is messenger of God (Tayyib Kalimah or Kalimah), and doctrinally by mandating five basic and fundamental pillars of practice(Five Pillars of Islaam).
