What this ...clearly cannot answer is - Why do Arabic dictionaries list Istilaam to mean Receipt?

Hans Wher pg 426

Al Mawrid pg 99

Almaany - here

http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&word=+%D8%A7%D8%B3%D8%AA%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%85+&search=&lang_name=English&category=%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%83%D9%84&type_word=0

This is a ridiculous argument . . . he repeats the same thing over and over . . . and without bothering to address . . . why dictionaries are against him?

Why the ridiculous lie?

- - -

"It means the receiving it does not mean neither paper receipt or even the English IN RECEIPT it is an act of receiving and it means Istilam"

Then why do dictionaries - several of them - say it does?

And what does Tassallum have anything to do with Istilaam? One possible meaning hardly means other meanings are invalid. . .

For example Isaal and Wasl have several meanings. . . why deliberately quote - this meaning - when you know this has NOTHING to do with anything . . .

Ha! Then you cannot answer . . . oh dear - you have speant years building a career on here . . . a lying - deceiving career. . . . now shamelessly - you resort to open lie!

"Our dear Amin who lives among kuffar that pay the cost of his social benifits so he can use his time posting these literary gems and he is unhappy becuase he knows that the word istilam means RECEIVING and not PAPER RECEIPT which means wasl or isal right our dear Amin the lost tablighee?"

So sometimes i run a business - a brand agency and other times - I am on Social Benefits? Oh dear . . . more lies?

The word Istilaam does mean Receipt - that is according to Dictionaries.

Hans Wher, Al Mawrid, Al Maany

Also - Google and Babel online translators.

Here are you lies that you refuse to answer - as you cannot:

"Shame on you for debating a language that you really do not know you might be a Fiqi as I suspect but it is clear as it can be that you do not know real spoken Arabic"

What has "real spoken Arabic" got to do with anything? I have already said . . .I do not know much about any of the dialects . . . so why the lying?

But this isn't question of "real spoken Arabic" - it is question of Literary Arabic - known as Modern Strabdard Arabic.

- - -

"Do you know what the word tassalum means? It means the receiving it does not mean neither paper receipt or even the English IN RECEIPT it is an act of receiving and it means Istilam"

Just as the words Wasl and Isaal have many meanings beside "Receipt" - so does the word Istilaam. Which has several meanings.

- - -

I quoted nothing . . . Other than almaany.com - A dictioanry. Hence this had nothing to do with me. If you have problem with them and other dictioanries . . . that clealry say Istilaam means "Receipt"

You take it up with them.

- - -

"Our dear Amin is from India"

Nope - My Grandparents were . . . I was born in UK.

- - -

"Arabic which is far from the truth and this is why our dear Amin told us that he earned degrees may be one or may be three in ANCIENT Arabic! When there is no such thing"

I never said such thing . . . another open lie! But there is Classical Arabic

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_Arabic

- - -

"he is what Indian Muslims call Hafiz and his masters the Arabs call a Fiqi but a Fiqi is the lowest on the totem pole of Muslim clerics!"

More made up rubbish - and lies . . . as per usual

- - -

"Right our dear Amin? So you see you can take the boy out of Hinduism but you cannot take Hinduism out of the boy"

Ha ha ha ha - what a nonsense!
