Isn't the birth of Islam in the 7th century? Doesn't "Islam" come from Shalom as in "peace" or rest as in the 7th day?

Also Zayin is "weapon" right? Wasn't Zayin used for the spread of the Islamic religion?

Yes, I've noticed both of those connections. I think there are some strong connections there, but I need to think about it more.
