Teaching Arabic to wannabe Arabs

So here is your Arabic language test for today: What does the word isal mean? and what does the word wasl mean? and what does the word istilam mean?

Now let me post this again:

Now the word istilam is Arabic means receiving (or the act of receiving and istislam means the act of surrendering)

And the Arabic term wasl or isal al-istilam means the (paper) receipt of the receiving

And for those of you that can read real Arabic and this is from elmaany http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&lang_name=%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A8%D9%8A&word=%D8%A7%D8%B3%D8%AA%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%85

  1. المعجم: مالية -

  2. استلام :

    تسلّم المشتري للأصل محلّ قد آجل أو مستقبلي من البائع ، وتعني بالانجليزية : taking delivery

And it says: tassalum or the act of receiving (from the same root as istilam) of the buyer now or later from the seller and it means in English taking delivery

Hello: Istislam means taking delivery aka RECEIVING! Now do you get it?

So the word istilam means taking delivery not a paper receipt it is the physical act of receiving

This means for the nth time that isal and wasl means receipt and istilam means receiving
