What social benefits would they be?

What happened to you our dear jamil? Oh let me guess you ran away like our dear Amin right?

Ran where?

So you tell us what does the word receipt in Arabic a language that neither you nor our dear Amin can read speak or write?

I'll allow Professor Hans Wehr to tell you and this time I've even given you the link so that you can do your homework:
