Another Hans Wehr link , التكرار يعلّم الحمار , Egyptians and my "Hindu" ancestors

Reader comment on item: Arabist Snobs
in response to reader comment: Teaching Arabic to wannabe Arabs and the Arabic word receipt means وصل or اصال ! استلام? Means receiving and you need to stick to Urdu

But the word استلام means RECEIVING it does not mean receipt

But it does. And here is Hans Wehr to put you to bed:


Now turn to page462 and cry as you have just found استلام and it what is that next to it? Receiving? I thought not.

But for ignorant people the likes of our dear Amin Istilam becomes receipt when it is not and as Egyptians say كولو عند العرب صبون

What have the egyptians got to do with the fact that you are a jāhil?

Now our dear Amin I suggest that you go and ask your Falafel man to: اعطني وصل and you will get a receipt then ask him to اعطني استلام or give me Istilam (receiving) and his answer will be: Huh?

Falafel man? You mean Abu' Dhimmi aka. Christophe Luxenberg?

Do it our dear Amin whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam and report to us proud kuffar

Tell me what days you mourn my brutalised "Hindu" ancestors so that I can join you.

Now our dear جميل روح امه

Just turned 12, have we? Silly boy.

it is your turn to make a fool of yourself. Go!

Go? Go where exactly? Go to Page426 of Hans Wehr to see استلام means receipt, by any chance? For which the link is given below?


I'm sure someone once said التكرار يعلّم الحمار , was it the egyptians?
