ISLAM Article(s)  
1. Islam: Submission
There are ways to do things. Only one of such ways is the best to achieve and to succeed. And it is human nature to desire to do things the best way with the utmost achievement and least failure. The function of the mind is not to find out or explore what that best way would be, but rather to follow it up as it was shown by God to us in the form of revelation.
2. Slave: the word
The Arabic word for slave is ABD which literally means worshipper, drived from the verb ABADA which means he worshipped. Before Islam, the word was used for slaves who used to serve Masters in the society. When Islam came, not only did it strongly and strictly prohibit the strong from making the weak worship them, but also the weak from worshipping the strong.
3. Slave: the concept
In technical language, one’s being a slave implies the existence of the master of that slave. The nature of the slavery is by all means to comply with the will of the Master with no any other options or negotiations.
