He he - I wonder ... like some people who enjoy pain... what the thrill here for you dhimmi? To see how big a lie you can get away with.

So why do these 2 dictionaries disagree with you?


Again as I have shown words are assigned many meaning as the time progresses. Primary meaning of this word of the word is "to receive, get, obtain, take possession, acceptance" - it is derived noun of the verb form Iftial (VIII).


Ohhhh baby! How is that for a hot quote.... even if it mine!


Oh as for the word receipt now let us check Badawi and Hinds dictionary of Egyptian Arabic the language of Sheikh el-Azhar and the major language that stems from Arabic and that is Egyptian Arabic and we now trun to page 942A and let us read it

So you are avoiding MSA dictionaries?

This is NOT about if Wasl means receipt - it is about Istilaam - which clearly does. As mentioned by the actual dictionaries.

And not EGYPTIAN DICTIONARIES .... HA HA HA HA HA HA HA - you do tickle me so!


Stick to petty Insults.... and you are forgetting to count my welfare checks!
