More tablighee twists and turns

So are you calling this one dictionary wrong

It is for sure a mistake and i proved it to you even from their own definition after all does the word receipt mean acceptance or taking over or assumption? you tell me and before you answer what is really a receipt?

Even the last few words: افادة الاستلام acknowledgment of receipt

For the nth time the word wasl and isal mean RECEIPT and the word istilam means RECEIVING not receipt

What a disaster
