Then provide us with link or and you must pardon me shut up


Here is your link:


Page426 if you can find it

Look for استلام if you can read

and now you shut up.


Also, guess what I typed into google translater to get " استلام " ..... I typed in "receipt" !

Hello: If you want to check the meaning of an Arabic word then you get the meaning of an Arabic/Arabic dictionary do you get it?


I do get it. In fact, I get it so much that I've given you the link of none other than the Hans Wehr dictionary:


You've now turned to page 426 and have begun crying because you have just seen Professor Wehr define استلام as receipt!


So here is an Arabic language test for you

I'll tell you what to do with this "arabic language test" of yours; send it to the editor of Hans Wehr. Maybe they'll add it in the next edition?


And here is your bonus for today and I call it the Falafel man test and it goes as follows after your buy your next falafel sandwich and pay the falafel guy ask him.

Whch falafel man would that be? Ibn Warraq or Christophe Luxenberg?
