  • Wali and Ally

    Assalamu Aalaikum,
    The arabic word "wali" and english word "ally" have similar pronunciation and meaning. Is word ALLY came from WALI? Or both came from Hebrew or latin?

    :wswrwb:

    Ally (verb)
    late 13c., "to join in marriage," from Old French alier "combine, unite," from a differentiated stem of aliier (from Latin alligare "bind to;" see alloy). Meaning "to form an alliance, join, associate" is late 14c. Related: allied; allying.

    Ally (noun)
    late 14c., "relative, kinsman," from ally (v.); mid-15c. in the sense of "one united with another by treaty or league."

    Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

    "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
    - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎
