Delusions and more delusions

Reader comment on item: Arabist Snobs

Our dear Jamil wrote this little gem and he is really saying that the primary meaning of the word istilam is to receive

Wrong again

And it was me who pointed out that the primary meaning of the word is to receive.

The word to receive means YASTALIM or يستلم and not istilam! How many times do I have to tell you that you need to stick to Urdu? Oh you do not believe me? here is from el-maany


And do us a favor and stick to Urdu

Again I should add this new tablighee excuse and if nothing works for a tablighee he tells us why do we kuffar check the Islamic literary sources? I call this stupid

But again once delusional always delusional
