Mussulman or Mosleman

Mussulman or Mosleman (from Arab. Salama), the proper term for a Mohammedan. The word is equivalent to Moslem (q.v.), of which it is, properly speaking, the plural; used in Persian fashion for the singular. We need hardly add that this Arabic plural termination of " an" has nothing whatever to do with our word man, and that a further English plural in men is both barbarous and absurd.
