Hello dhimmi,

I don't want to waste your time nor my own, but I am afraid you didn't get my point.

I agree, Bashr means mankind and human. However Bashr never means humanity.

Mankind both means human and humanity.

So I meant to say, Bashr means mankind in the sense of human not in the sense of humanity.

I hope you can get my point.
