"Really? you told me that before? where? and how come our dear PP the lost tablighee did not know that?"
Previous comments - many times. But the word "Isal" had nothing to do with anything. You brought it up. And you brought up - that Istilaam - does not mean receipt. It does.
Simple - Check dictionaries. Al Marid pg 99 - Hans Wher pg 426 - Google - Al Maany:

"No it does not mean receipt the word istilam means receiving and more evidence? Let us check Wortabet dictionary page 310
receipt وصل أعطي وصلا
I do not see any istilam here and why is that our dear Amin"
Dear me! So where does Wortabet mention the word Istilaam? He doesn't.
See - fair bit of lying - isn't it.

"who earned not one but three degrees in "ancient" Arabic any guesses?"
Another lie. I have never claimed this. As I say. BA & MA in Classical Arabic. I know fairly impressive!
- - -
"and wasl or isal al-istilam means the receipt or wasl or isal of receiving and here is the equivalent in accounting 101 in English"
What has this to do with anything? You cannot cover up you lie in such a way. This has got absolutely nothing to do with anything. Simple distraction.

"The piece of paper is called wasl or isal and not your bogus istilam"
Oh but dearie . . .it is NOT me saying it. It the dictioanries:
- - -
"And the answer is going to be: انت عاوز وصل مش كده"
HA HA HA HAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH HA HA HA HAH AH HA HA HA HA
I am laughing OPENLY at you . . . . . that is NOT Modern Standard Arabic. But Egyptian Arabic.
Now if your imaginary falafel seller - knows his Literary Arabic - then he would understand Istilaam perfectly.

Hey! Why argue with me . . . . why not take it up with Google - Al maany Al Mawrid . . . Hans Wher
Why are they corrupting Arabic . . . you tell em!
Ha ha ha hah ha
