الأسلام vs. الإسلام as a term for "Islam"

Hi,

Wondering if any Arabic speakers can comment on the difference between these two versions of the term for Islam.

Both get about 8 million results in Yahoo, but Google only shows about 300k results for the one with the thing (in American English we call it a "doohickey," or a "squiggly"; I believe in Arabic it's called a hamza) on the top. I have a feeling the Y results ignore the mark.

There's got to be a syntactical difference or something that allowed me to reg it at this late date, but I'd like to know what it is exactly.

TIA.

Re: الأسلام vs. الإسلام as a term for "Islam"

I'm not an Arabic speaker, but i've been using Google trends to compare similar terms. Here's some guesses:

http://www.google.com/trends?q=%2C%D...o=all&date=all

RED: Most common term?
YELLOW: What you registered, typo?
GREEN: Dictionary/official term (reg 2005 by someone from Dubai)
RED: Another primary term, Science, for comparison

If you are unsure of what you registered, you can always use Google trends to compare with other common terms:

Download -
تحميل
Marriage -
زواج
Forum -
منتديات

الإسلام is the more correct version

Touchring's addition الاسلام seems to be the most searched term, according to OVT and trends.

Any idea how these three are used differently, grammatically?

Edit: ah, typo.
