"For the nth time how come you did not know that the word isal or wasl means RECEIPT? Let me guess because you really do not know any real spoken Arabic right?"
How is it that you know that I did not know meaning of Isaal, Wasl? How? See an. . . easy lie. Wasl and Isaal and their meanings were NOT under discussion. You made Istilaam a case. . . .
So why all the lies.

Istilaam DOES mean Receipt. as repeatedly shown. . . Google. . . Hans Wher pg 426 - almaany - Al Mawrid Pg 99.

Now we might be GETTING somewhere . I have NEVER claimed I was proficient speaker of any ammiyaah - previously I have denied it. I am procient in MSA and Classical.
What have the Arabic dialects got to do with anything?
