Meaning of Salam
Salam is a direct Quranic name that means peace, safety, security, and a person who doesn’t harm others. It is used in many places in the Quran and is also the root for Allah’s name of as-Salam. A person shouldn’t be named as-Salam because the “as-” at the beginning makes it specific to Allah, it means “the One Peace”. But by removing the “as-“, the word becomes a general attribute and can be used as a name.
Salam is also an Islamic greeting that means “Peace be upon you!”, i.e. “I mean you no harm.”
It is all peace [the Night of al-Qadr], until the rising of the dawn. (Quran 97:5)
O you who believe! when you go to war in Allah’s way, make investigation, and do not say to any one who offers you peace: You are not a believer. Do you seek goods of this world’s life! But with Allah there are abundant gains; you too were such before, then Allah conferred a benefit on you; therefore make investigation; surely Allah is aware of what you do. (Quran 94:4)
With it, Allah guides whoever obeys the will of Allah to the paths of peace and safety, and takes them out of darkness towards light by His command, and guides them to the Straight Path. (Quran 5:16)
