Salaam was the word for "peace" in the Arabic language.
"Salaam aliekum" was a common greeting in the Arab world, to which the response was "Aliekum salaam" ("Peace be with you"/"And also with you"). Captain David Rabin used this response to Ensign Faisal Prince's salute, "Shalom". (TOS novel: Vulcan's Forge)
