Our dear Amin who lives in the west that he does not like could you translate this Arabic from what you called religious reference and Islamic terms

1."اِسْتِلامُ رِسالَةٍ": تَسَلُّمُها، أَخْذُها بِاليَدِ

Let me help you it means: Istilam (means) message he received it (and) took it by hand (read this as he received it)

I do not see anything about a paper receipt here and why is that our dear Amin who told us that he earned degrees in "ancient" Arabic what ever that is

Oh and speaking of technical terms in islam in the same reference let us read this together

استلام الحجر الأسود:

تقبيله ، أو لمسه باليد

istilam al-hajar al-aswad (the black stone idol of the Ka3ba) kissing it or touching it with the hand

What a disaster and who says that Islam is not a pagan religion

Oh there is more we are told in the Islamic tradition that this stone (the idol that is) used to be white in color but Arab women used to yahuku (read this as rub) their genitals on the stone so they can get pregnant (see what happens when you do not tell people about the birds and the bees?) and that the color changed and became black as this is the color of the blood from their menses!

It is not me who is saying that. It is your sources that tell us that

So next time you do your pagan istilam then think of this little gem

And who says that islam is not ridiculous
