slang tight: drunk

VI.B45.110: 'O Sustainer'
The Story of Mohammed 99: (addressing Allah, in a parable about the strength of charity) ''O our Sustainer,' said the angels, 'is there anything in Thy creation stronger than wind?''


what time we rise and when we take up to toothpick

VI.B45.109: 'what time thou risest and in the night and at the fading of the stars'
The Story of Mohammed 93: 'Mohammed enjoined his followers to pray five times a day. 1. Before sunrise. 2. When the sun has begun to decline. 3. In the afternoon. 4. A little after sunset. 5. At night fall... but many... pray at other time as well. For it is written, "Celebrate the praises of thy Lord what time thou risest, and in the night, and at the fading of the stars"'

Mohammed used toothpicks (Ayesha handed him one as he lay dying)

For a nod to the nabir is better than a wink to the wabsanti.

proverb A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse

VI.B45.109: 'Prayer is better than sleep'
The Story of Mohammed 94: (of Bilal, the first muezzin) 'Before the early morning prayer he added, "Prayer is better than sleep"'

Arabic: nabi: prophet
neighbor

FW1 had "than wink" (no 'a')

Wahabi: a Muslim sect
wasabi?
absent
Italian santi: saints

what does this mean? being kind to your neighbors is better than praying to absent saints??
