"Kala Laie" for convenience literally translated "Sorry- Excuse me"; let's see its deeper meanings. First of all, the term could be translated into: "Sorry", in the sense:" Do you really mean that? Or:” with this meaning! (that of the term Kala)”. Let's immerse ourselves in the meanings of the Kala, the second principle of the Huma.
