    Ok we are trying to find a word meaning in english from arabic and can't seem to find it.
    lets say I want to send money to someone in another city with a friend lets call my friend jake.
    Lets say I tell Jake "I have trust in you that you will deliver the money without stealing it"
    Having trust for someone is a word that translates in arabic fine. But in arabic there is also a word for the thing that you trust the person with, in this case the money. What do you call the money.
    Or lets say I tell Jake I Have trust that you will keep the money safe for when i come back from holiday.
    In arabic "I have trust in you keeping this" transalates into a word fine. Again in arabic there is also a word for the money. What is it in english pls??
    Basically, I want a " "The" trusted object" word.


    If you know arabic the word for money is امانة
    The word for having trust for that امانة with someone,, as you should know is,, امنتك for something.

    Thanks.

    a "pledge" is something which you promise to undertake... it can mean money.

    Thanks for the reply. I just looked at dictionary and it said something delivered as security for payement of debt which is a better word than what I was using to trust someone with something so thanks for that.
    Still not quite what I was looking for as I'm looking for a word for the "debt" to be paid, there is one in Arabic. Probs not in English but I remembered an important word here pledge, that should settle the argument xD thnx

    I think the word is charge. Here's the entry from the shorter OED:

    Well, I read what you wrote, thought about it, checked by looking it up then posted it. I think quite a bit about words. Once upon a time, I spent £16 to have the shorter OED with me everywhere I go. It has to be the best £16 I've ever spent. Also good for arbitrating Boggle games with the in laws.
    Glad to be of assistance.
