The church chose Islam for the name because it was a language they considered dirty.
Beyond that, though, there existed literally dozens of symbolic occurrences of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water throughout history-the Pythagorean cycles of life, the Chinese Hong-Fan, the Jungian male and female rudiments, the quadrants of the Zodiac, even the Muslims revered the four ancient elements …. although in Islam they were known as "squares, clouds, lightning, and waves."
There are no more uses of "Islam" in the book.
