Our dear Amin ... how come you did not know that the word receipt in Areabic means wasl? and let me repeat it one more time:

Oh and how come you did not know that the word wasl means receipt? And how come you did not know that the word istilaam means receiving and not receipt?

>The word Istilaam does mean recipet - it is in the dictioanry. Hans Wher

Really? where? a paper receipt and this is what PP is talking about is a wasl

How come you did not know that?
