"Our dear Amin ... who seems to be unaware that the word receipt in Arabic means wasl or isal and he will find both words in HW dictionary pages 1073 and 1074 and let us read what it says"
Why in the world would I not know this . . . for one thing you have posted it several, several several times . . . and I have NEVER denied that those words do not mean what you say they mean.
However - they have got NOTHING to do with anything. They are NOT under discussion.
"Our dear Amin ... who seems to be unaware that the word receipt in Arabic means wasl or isal "
Is a nothing more than a straight forward lie.

"I do not see anything here that is even close to saying that this word also means ISTILAM too right? and do you know why? because the word wasl means receipt not receiving"
Why would Istilaam be under the word Isal?
For that why don't you turn to Hans Wehr dictioanry - Pg 426
Al Marid 99

"And these two words are the Arabic language words for receipt"
No - they are not. There are several more - Qasimah, Fatoorah - can also mean a reciept - although Fatoorah means a invoice primarily.

"And how come it does not say isal also means istilam? Because it does not as istilam means receiving"
See references above. 4 dictionaries [Inc. Google].
Why is it you cannot explain this strange phenomena?

"Oh and while we are waiting for your answer: is BISM an acronym? And if it is not it means that we have a liar here so who is the liar here? Jesus? Muhammad? or al-Tabari? I smell riots here"
Another previous lie & fabrication. Go on make me laugh . . . paste that chunk again . . . with that TRANSLATION! Ha ha ha . . .
