س ل م  is an Arabic root made up of a set of three consonants from which originates several different words within the Arabic vocabulary. Islam and salam are two such words having a common root but different definitions.    Words derived from the s-l-m root are found in quite a few Quranic Verses.   The word 'Muslim' ( مُسلِم‎) is a derivation of Islam, both having the س ل م root.   While اسلام means submission to Allah alone,  مسلم means a submitter or a person who submits to Allah.   Other variations:  The word aslam (اسلم ) which means safe, free or healthy, also has the same root slm, but a different meaning.   Then again the word salama ( سلامة)  has the same root too that refers to flawlessness, peace or safety can be viewed as somewhat connected with salam. The word salam specifically means well-being/peace so Allah Almighty commands submitters to use it as a greeting.  Thus, Islam or Submission is an indispensable prerequisite of the Monotheistic Faith (Tawheed) and salam or peace is one of the many virtues of a submitter.
