Why is Islam called so?

Praise be to Allah.

A: In Arabic, Islam means surrender . It has been taken to describe the status of the one who embraces Allah’s Religion for he surrenders his will to Allah and abide by the rules set by Him and conveyed via His Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. Allah says about Ibrahim, peace be upon him, “When his Lord said to him, “Submit (be a Muslim )!” He said, “I have submitted myself (as a Muslim ) to the Lord of  all that exists. ” [Al-Baqarah 2:131 – interpretation of the meaning] .
