View Full Version : Siqaayah and Suwaa'

An elderly gentleman raised a question during a discussion with the Sheikh (between class sessions) on the use of two different words (Siqaayah and Suwaa') in Surah Yusuf. Both the words refer to the same thing - a vessel in which one is given to drink.

A detailed explanation of the two words (and their synonymous nature) can be found in Lane's Lexicon (May Allah reward the Sheikh for pointing out this great resource on the web):
