For the readers: This is beyond our dear Amin (as well as our dear Jamil)

The word receipt in Arabic is Wasl or isal وصلor ايصال but our dear Amin is not aware of such fact inspite of the fact that he told us not once but many times that he earned not one but three degrees in Arabic right our dear Amin? But did he know that the word receipt means وصلor ايصال he had no clue

And here is from not one but two dictionaries English/Arabic

http://www.wordreference.com/enar/receipt

And here is another dictionary

http://en.bab.la/dictionary/english-arabic/receipt

I even suggested to our dear Amin that he can go and practice his poor Arabic and ask his Falafel guy to give him a wasl after paying and let us see what happens

However half knowledge is damn dangerous because one can also say وصل استلام or THE RECEIPT OF RECEIVING and here is a reference

http://www.wordreference.com/aren/%D9%88%D8%B5%D9%84%20%D8%A7%D8%B3%D8%AA%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%85

But the word استلام means RECEIVING it does not mean receipt

But for ignorant people the likes of our dear Amin Istilam becomes receipt when it is not and as Egyptians say كولو عند العرب صبون

And here is the word Istilam alone and it means receiving and not paper receipt

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

And here is the word in Arabic/English

http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=english&lang_name=Arabic&word=%D8%A7%D8%B3%D8%AA%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%85&category=Administrative

Now our dear Amin I suggest that you go and ask your Falafel man to: اعطني وصل and you will get a receipt then ask him to اعطني استلام or give me Istilam (receiving) and his answer will be: Huh?

Do it our dear Amin whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam and report to us proud kuffar

Now our dear جميل روح امه it is your turn to make a fool of yourself. Go!
