Islam or Eslam

(Arab.), the proper name of the religion known as Mohammedanism, designates complete and entire submission of body and soul to God, his will and his service, as well as to all those articles of faith, commands and ordinances revealed to and ordained by Mohammed his prophet. Islam, the Mohammedans say, was once the religion of all men; but wickedness and idolatry came into the world either after the murder of Abel, or at the time which resulted in the flood, or only after Amru Ibn-Lohai, one of the first and greatest Arabian idolaters. Every child, they believe, is born in Islam, or the true faith, and would continue faithful to the end were it not influenced by the wickedness of its parents, "who misguide it early, and lead it astray to Magismi, (See PIAKSEISS), Judaism, or Christianity." (See MOHAMMEDANISM).
