comment ﷲ (Allah) as a shem
@Yishai How is God a generic term? That's like saying Yishai is a generic term because there are other people named Yishai. Yet you still know I'm pinging you. That's how names work.

comment ﷲ (Allah) as a shem
It's akbar not achbar. Like the Hebrew כביר ונאור הצליחה נא. Also, Allahu is one word.

@IsaacMoses It's an implied bipartite question I think: is it a shem? can I type it? That's certainly how the answerers took it.

comment Is it true that it is 'Hiddur Mitzvah' to have the Hanukkah lights stay lit for longer?
+1 Aren't options 2 and 3 in footnote 3 the same? Unless you want to say that there were always two "tracks" in lighting candles, with two distinct time periods.

comment Shmitah nowadays?
@Yishaq The fact that Tannaim argue about a rabbinic law does not make it a safek derabanan. There's this thing we have called "Psak"...

But right on target, according to RNTZYB (see your answer, below).

comment Relighting Chanukah lights that extinguish
@YeZ What's the problem? Benefit from oil which was designated for the Mitzva? You don't benefit from the candles.

comment What species have identifying characteristics from multiple types in kashrus halacha?
@NBZ Was I supposed to guess that? Why should "leafy like plant" indicate safek plant? Why should "lives in the water" indicate safek fish? Cows drink water like birds, and have two eyes like fish.
