Ad-Deen includes submission and humility. Subjecting a person to "Deen" means (in Arabic) that he was humbled and then became filled with humility. When it is said that somebody "Yadeen" Allah (SWT) or "Yadeen" for Allah (SWT), it means to "owe allegiance" to Him (AWJ), that is, to worship Allah (AWJ), obey Him, and submit to Him. Therefore, Deen-u-Allah is the worship of Him (AWJ), obedience to Him, and the submission to Him (SWT).
Al-'Ibaadah in its original meaning is: being subdued; as a rough road is made smooth after paving.
