Abstract

Contrary to the general and common idea that Islam etymologically means submission, surrendering, servitude or even slavery, this paper tries to prove just the opposite, that Islam is a protest, an opposition and a revolution. The term Aslama, in fact, is ambiguous. It means to surrender to God, not to yield to any other power. It implies a double act : first, a rejection of  all non-Transcendental yokes; and second, an acceptance of  the Transcendental Power. Islam, by this function, is a double act of negation and affirmation. This double act is expressed in the utterance “I witness that there is no god except the God.”
