does this clause ما لي حتى أفعلhave the same meaning asما دمت أفعل ?
Doesn't sound clear to me, can you bring the context?
It's actually from the same sentence as the expression you've replied to me in the other thread:
مادام الناس قد تتمسحوا و أخصوا ... فما لي حتى أحشر نفسي في قضية هي أكبر مني، سأكون فأر الفداء فيها ضائعا
Oh, then it means "therefor".
If they become emotionless/careless ..then why should I indulge myself etc
Thank you, it's very helpful
It can also mean "what's in it for me", "what would I benefit" or "why should I interfere in a cause that is much bigger than me".
Separate names with a comma.
