Explanation:
The term can be anything. Please, provide context "as in ...". It could be "manhal" but not "minhal" meaning as my colleague's answer states above.

Explanation:
Both مَنهَل "Manhal" and مِنهال "Minhal" are derived from the verb نَهَلَ "nahal", which means to drink plentifully. "Manhal" refers to a source of overflowing water (or, by extension, knowledge, or other enriching matter). "Minhal" is a superlative appellation of a bountifully giving person. The emphasis here is on the act of giving, not just the abundance of riches, as in the former. Thus, Minhal is often used as a given male name.
