comment How does Rashi knows that Shimshai safra is Hamman's son?
Are you asking for a midrash/gemara/etc. as a source or for a source in Tanach itself?

This is what the Mishnah Brurah (695:4) says in the name of the Taz and the Gra.

comment Is there a difference between “להלן” and “לקמן”?
I heard that "לקמן" is used for far away and "לקמיה" for immediately, but nothing about "להלן" (though it seems that modern Hebrew books favor "להלן" more).

comment Understanding the usage of וגומר and וכולו
I always thought that וכו' is short for וכולי, not וכולו. I have also seen it written out that way sometimes.

comment How to get drunk on Purim and still pray?
@Fred It seems to me that the Aruch HaShulchan wouldn't be saying that according to the Rambam, since according to his understanding of the Rambam there is no requirement to intoxicate on Purim.

comment How to get drunk on Purim and still pray?
but since most poskim hold it still applies then according to his reasoning you can't fulfill the obligation by sleeping (if he follows most poskim). And who is the Emek Brachah? Is it quoted by the Mishnah Brurah?

comment How to get drunk on Purim and still pray?
@Fred Where does the Aruch HaShulchan say this? In 695 he quotes lots of authorities, but doesn't make clear his own position. I didn't see him say that. He seems to be dissatisfied with the Rama's psak to sleep, since he says that the intention of the Rambam was that the rule to intoxicate no longer applies, (cont. ...)

It might also be possible to pray at sunrise, hearing the megilah, and then send the gifts and charity, and eat immediately afterwards (to fulfill the Mishnah Brurah's advice to have the meal early) and sleep until Minchah Ketanah. Though this is probably impractical for most people.
