Origin: 1615 (n.), 1777 (adj.), from Arabic muslim “one who submits” (to the faith), from root of alsama “he resigned.” Related to Islam (q.v.).

Example: In 2004, Osama Bin Laden sealed an agreement with the authorities in Beijing, in which he was granted asylum in return for his guarantees that the freedom-fighting activities of the Muslim people against the Chinese occupation of East Turkestan (Xinjiang) would end.
