Question


Why is our religion called "Islam"


Answer

Because one who enters it submits (Aslama) himself to Allah, and he surrenders to (Istislam), and abides by, all of the judgements that come from Allah and from His Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam). Allah Almighty said:

And who turns away from the religion of Ibrahim except him who fools himself? [Baqarah 2:130]

He also said:

When His Lord said to him, "Submit (i.e. be a Muslim)!" He said, "I have submitted myself (as a Muslim) to the Lord of all that exists." [Baqarah 2:131]

And

But whoever submits his face (himself) to Allah and he is a good-doer then his reward is with his Lord [Baqarah 2:112]
