Meaning of "thing"
« on: February 17, 2021, 09:34:15 PM »
Salam
In Qur'an the word shayin is translated to thing.
In English "thing" can mean a material object or even a more abstract meaning such as an idea or thought.
My question is the word "shayin" is that just for material thing or can it also extend to abstract concepts or does Arabic have a different word for thought and ideas which is exclusive i
Of "thing"
I don't speak any Arabic so please keep it simple
