Dear Infernos,
Thanks for your interesting question. As you probably know, it is of
course extremely difficult to prove with 100% certainty that this word
does not exist in any language. However, I am fairly certain that
neither "nusrahl" nor the phrase "Mesa Nusrahl" exist, at least in any
language with written records using the Latin script. Here's how I
came to that conclusion:

First of all, neither the word nor the phrase appear in any of the 3
Billion webpages indexed by Google. Searching for "nusrahl" does not
return any webpages:


That alone is already a pretty good indication that the word does not
exist in this spelling. I then searched all of the 18 dictionaries on

for this word and again, no result. Lastly, I searched the Library of
Congress's Global Gateway,

and its general index of books,

which includes the largest collection of books in the world. Again, no

That said, I included the disclaimer above concerning the Latin
script, since it might be the case that this word is a phonetic
translation from a different script, which makes it more difficult to
track down. For example, the word "nusral" seems to exist both as a
last name and possibly also as a word. There are at least three
people, who have the name Nusral, as seen as by this Google search:
Please let me know if you have any reason to believe that "Nusral" is
a possible spelling. If so, I'd be happy to do a few further searches.
If not, I am fairly confident to answer your question with a No, the
word or phrase does not exist in any language.
Best wishes,
