Forget what St. Peter? That استلام means receipt? Like Hans Wehr Page 426 shows?

Resounding refutation of what?

That استلام really is "receipt"? And that dhimmi al misri has got this hopelessly confused with إستلم (istalam)?

If you'd like to take 20 seconds of your precious time and click below, turn to page 426 and find the word istilām on the left hand side, guess what Professor Wehr, the grand grammarian of the Arabic language, has listed next to it? A little tip for you: Receipt.

--------------------------

LOL, in this particular forum, the opinion seems to be fairly behind Dhimmi,

Opinion of whom?

(I'll just ignore the fact that you called him "Dhimmi" even though he is "dhimmi no more" ie. someone who no longer pays "religious tax")

as witnessed buy the approvals of his many posts, and a resounding refutation of Amin ...

Approvals by whom?

What refutation? That استلام means receipt?

You comments firmly place you in the later category and not the former.

Not interested. Tell it to someone who cares, maybe?

PS. Do not forget to check Page426 of Hans Wehr. I'm counting on you.
