I'd say it would be "Buddislamists" to outsiders, non-believers ...

what's your derivation for "Mubuddislims" ?

and what's the relationship between "Islam" & "Muslim", linguistically ?

if I remember correctly, "Islam" is "The Way" and "Muslim" is "follower of the way" ... is that right ?


and seems like they called jesus' teachings "The Way" .... the Buddhas too, yeah ?

OK. Which do you use more frequently, though, "Islamist" or "Muslim"?

S-L-M is the root (same as salam peace); the verb is salima, with derived Form IV aslama to submit to God, and the active participle of that is muslim. (So the mu-—and probably the -i- as well—is the same formative element as in muaddib.) Just as muaddib is "one who teaches proper etiquette", muslim means "one who submits to God".

Buddhism is Budhiya and if you slap that together with Islam you get Budhislam. If you ignore the obvious irregularity of that Indic lump at the beginning and smack the mu- on the front and change the end the same way as before, you get mubudhislim, conformed to FH's slightly irregular spelling as "Mubuddislim". :)

Wayists ... sounds like that bat-critter's religion in Andromeda. ;)

The Zensunnis weren't the only Buddislamists.
FH in the Religion Appendix wrote: 4. The so-called Ancient Teachings—including those preserved by the Zensunni Wanderers from the first, second, and third Islamic movements; the Navachristianity of Chusuk, the Buddislamic Variants of the types dominant at Lankiveil and Sikun, ...

FH in Terminology of the Imperium wrote:ORANGE CATHOLIC BIBLE: the "Accumulated Book," the religious text produced by the Commission of Ecumenical Translators. It contains elements of most ancient religions, including the Maometh Saari, Mahayana Christianity, Zensunni Catholicism and Buddislamic traditions. Its supreme commandment is considered to be: "Thou shall not disfigure the soul."

I think Saffron robes with huge beards could be a good look.


FTR the word would presumably would have to combine Buddhist and Muslim in some way, no?

Islam refers to the community, like the word Christianity refers as a whole to all Christians or the religion itself. You wouldn't point to someone and say "That person is a Christianity." Just like you wouldn't say "That person is an Islam or Islamist or whatever." BTW The term Islamist is generally used to refer to people who have a theocratic Islamic view of government afaik.

The equivalent words for Islam and Christianity, (the one set of terms even atheists know by instinct):

Noun, the religion as a whole: Islam/Christianity
Adjective, associated with the religion: Islamic/Christian
Noun, member of the religion: Muslim/Christian

Depends on how you were phrasing the statement, I could be incorrect about this, but you could call a person Islamic, just not an Islamic. So calling someone Buddhislamic sounds fine to me, but I wouldn't call someone a Buddhislamic.

Yeah I think that's right. Islamic is an adjective but not a noun.

Perhaps the designated word for this type of follower would be a Buddimuslim. I rather like the sound of it.
