Hebrew term or phrase: Yislam
As in Yis-rael, what do the Yis and Lam mean?

Explanation:
Yislam, as far as I am aware, is not Hebrew. The literal meaning of Islam(in Arabic) is peace; surrender of one’s will i.e. losing oneself for the sake of God and surrendering one’s own pleasure for the pleasure of God.

The root letters of the word Islam (s-l-m) also correspond to those of the Hebrew word Sahlom (meaning - peace).
