Reader comment on item: Friendless in the Middle East
in response to reader comment: Hans Wehr dictionary page 1073 and the words Wasl and Isal or RECEIPT and our dear jamil has no clue that the ultimate Arabic language dictionary is Lisan al-Arab! How come you did not know that our dear jamil

ROTFL This must be the most stupid remark that you ever made. Mr and you must pardon me ignorant if you need to know the meaning of an Arabic word then you go to the top of the food chain and in the case of Arabic it is Lisan al-Arab dictionary and I provided you with the link so all you need to do is to tell us where does Ibn Manzur say that the word receipt in Arabic really means Istilam and not Wasl or Isal as i proved to you

But I would be quoting a dictionary by Ibn Manzur the Muslim, no? And they are all corrupt, un and poorly educated, didn't you say?

And while we are waiting here is the word RECEIPT in Arabic a language that you cannot speak read or write

الوَصْلُ : الإيصال ، وثيقة تعطي مقابل ما يدفع من مال

Or al-Wasl al-Isal is a document given in exchange for what was paid in money

Nobody cares.

Here is the link so while you are in your bed check the link if you can read Arabic

http://www.almaany.com/ar/dict/ar-ar/%D9%88%D8%B5%D9%84/

And you will find it in Hans Wehr page 1073

bla bla

How come you did not know that? and did you do the Falafel man test? I can assure you he will laugh at you if you tell him to give you Istilam instead of a Wasl/Isal

Which falafel man would that be? Can you recommend any in particular?

So you tell me how come you did not know that the word Wasl or Isal in Arabic mean RECEIPT? Ignorance may be?

I'll read this as diversions...

And here is the meaning of the word Istilam from an Arabic dictionary written by Arabs and not by some German Arabist

اِستِلام: ( اسم )

مصدر اِسْتَلَمَ
اِسْتِلامُ رِسالَةٍ : تَسَلُّمُها ، أَخْذُها بِاليَدِ

Or Istilam noun istalam masdr ISTILAM message is the RECEIVING and taking it by hand

This is what Istilam means and this is how you use it with the word Wasl as in:

إيصال استلام عهدة:

وثيقة يصدرها بنك يضمن فيها أن الورقة محلّ عقد الخيار مودعة لديه وأنها متاحة للتسليم حسب الأصول

Or Isal Istilam or the RECEIPT OF RECEIVING are you that slow?

This is what yuor Arab masters tell us so are they liars or are they Islamophobes?

But again as Egyptians say Kulu 'and al-'Arab saboon!

Long live the Egyptians, now get over them and lets move on...

Oh I'm not done and here is the meaning of the word Istilam in Hans Wehr

Well let us read it and this is what it says

1. receipt

************************************* BINGO! ***************

2, acceptance

3. taking over

4. assumption

Assumption, taking over and acceptance do not mean receipt right our dear Jamil

Stop contradicting yourself.

ya Roh Omak so you tell us in your own words what is the maning of these words

ya means ya, roh means roh and omak means omak. There you go.

But here is the problem the author does not define the meaning of the word RECEIPT and for this you have to check Lisan al-Arab the rest of the meaning as per your idol Hans Wehr is really means RECEIVING! do you get it or are you that slow?

Hans Wehr, Third Edition, Page426:

Oh and check Hans Wehr Third Edition page 1073 for the real meaning of receipt or Wasl

Oh and while we are waiting for your answer

1. Why did your Hindu ancestors convert to the religion of the Arabs only? Was it because of the sword as in Islam Tislam or were they bribed in-order to convert to Islam as it says in Q9:60?

2. Is it true that millions of your Hindu ancestors were killed enslaved and raped by the Muslim invaders on India or was Elst a liar?

Which "Hindu" ancestors are these then, I'm counting on you to reference/list their names so that I can set aside a day and come sit with you to mourn them? Deal?

3. Let me see you ain't an Arab so you cannot be an Ashraf so are you an Arzal our dear Amin I mean Jamil?

Now it is your turn to make a fool of yourself again. Go! (as in go and make a fool of yourself)

Not go to the falafel man?

Do not run away as you always do

Leave Islam and get a grip on reality

Only if you get a grip on istilaam.
