LoL Jawaid Bhai. Compare your example of "A bird in hand is worth two in the bush" to: Jawaid made a bird out of clay. Now put a proverbial twist to this. This is a language my brother and we all understand proverbs and idioms are part of a language and we get them when we see them. Instead of going through irrelevant and trivial arguments go to the verse in question, say 5:110, and show that yes indeed the word in question represents a proverb. Else, it is a case of non-Arabs telling Arabs what are proverbs and idioms in their language? Would you do that please? Quran did use the same word as proverb as well, can you spot the difference between the two usages?
