i read Al Moujam Al Wasiit, and it does not give any other meaning for Al Malak.

The mistake: "Malak" instead of "Malik" written on all four clocks.

There. I already said there has to be a calligraphic explanation for it.

A dead language is one that's not spoken natively by any living community. No one today has 7th century Arabic (or the reconstructed modern version of it) as their mother tongue so Fus'ha is indeed dead.

The examples you've given are irrelevant to the definition and similar examples could be given for numerous other languages that are considered dead as well (e.g., Latin, Sanskrit, and ancient Greek).

you mean there are news papers, magazines, TV channels and Schools and Universities that use Sanskrit, Latin and ancient Greek as their language? i don't think so Fus'ha is different in every possible way.
