Zhizn-zhwand


Due to russian alphabet which contains ts, zh, sh and ch russian language sometimes sounds very similar to southern dialect of pashto.

No chance. منان is a pure Arabic word, I believe it derives from the root ‘منن', and المنان is one of the names of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى).

But like I explained in me earlier post, in pretty sure Iblis is wrong. I think this is one of those cases where similar words with unrelated origins end up sounding similar, like ardh (ارض)/earth or samaa’ (سماء)/asmaan.
You think that’s embarrassing?
Watch this and then rethink your definition of embarrassing.

The father(Apriday) of my 'Rushtan' friend brought his family to Pakistan for a few years(From Saudi Arabia). My friend was fluent in Russian, English and Arabic. He wanted to learn Pashto, so I was teaching him.
P.S. We met in Pakistan.
I am currently studying Civil Engineering in Turkey.

Yes a few words here and there are similar. Slavic Languages are closer(but unintelligible) to Iranian languages, then say Germanic Languages.

Dera manana.
The guy is a control freak. When he was a moderator, he banned me just cause I insulted Najib and described the afghan gov as prostitute like gov.

He did not want to partake in a discussion started by a Najib hater and farsiwan like yourself becasue it makes him feel belittled reeking from Inferiority complex. He is a complete hypocrite praising democracy hater Najib and praising democracy at the same time.
