Explanation:
Hi Amy,

Thanks for your kudoz message on the Eng-Arabic help.

BaSeer is one endowed with eyesight; also: tknowing, discerning, sagacious, endowed with insight, etc.

BaSeerat/baSeerah: insight, discernment, sagacity, etc.;hence, baSeerataan carries BOTH sides of the coin. Eyes, after all, are "the windows of the soul," and in them you can read "the heart's letter."

Regards.
