Again our dear Abd el-Rahman is using every trick they teach him in his kuttab that if confronted by kuffar and nothing works then use the trick of Islamic twists and turns

Again you insist on using words like irhab and irhabi that have no relation to the Quran.

And again you are beyond clueless irhab and irhabi and yurhib and yurhibuun all belong to the same root RHB and there is no reason to find every word in every root in the Qur'an right ya ayuha al-3abqari al-kabeer? you argument here is ridiculous

Now let us see what is says in the Egyptian Arabic dictionary by el-Said Badawi and Martin Hinds and let us check page 354B and you will find

ارهاب intimidation terrorism

ارهابي terrorist

And guess what the root is? It is RHB and guess what again? this is the same root of the words yurhib and yurhibuun

How come you did not know that?

And here is what al-Tabari says that the Quranic turhibuun from the root RHB means:

وَأَمَّا قَوْله : { تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوّ اللَّه وَعَدُوّكُمْ } قَالَ اِبْن وَكِيع : 12604 - حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي عَنْ إِسْرَائِيل , عَنْ عُثْمَان بْن الْمُغِيرَة الثَّقَفِيّ , عَنْ مُجَاهِد , عَنْ اِبْن عَبَّاس : { تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوّ اللَّه وَعَدُوّكُمْ } قَالَ : تُخْزُونَ بِهِ عَدُوّ اللَّه وَعَدُوّكُمْ . * - حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَد بْن إِسْحَاق , قَالَ : ثنا أَبُو أَحْمَد , قَالَ : ثَنَا إِسْرَائِيل , عَنْ عُثْمَان , عَنْ مُجَاهِد . عَنْ اِبْن عَبَّاس , مِثْله . * - حَدَّثَنِي الْحَارِث , قَالَ : ثنا عَبْد الْعَزِيز , قَالَ : ثنا إِسْرَائِيل , عَنْ خُصَيْف , عَنْ عِكْرِمَة وَسَعِيد بْن جُبَيْر , عَنْ اِبْن عَبَّاس :{ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوّ اللَّه وَعَدُوّكُمْ } قَالَ : تُخْزُونَ بِهِ عَدُوّ اللَّه وَعَدُوّكُمْ . وَكَذَا كَانَ يَقْرَأ بِهَا تُرْهِبُونَ . * - حَدَّثَنِي الْحَارِث , قَالَ : ثنا عَبْد الْعَزِيز , قَالَ : ثنا إِسْرَائِيل , عَنْ عُثْمَان بْن الْمُغِيرَة وَخُصَيْف , عَنْ مُجَاهِد , عَنْ اِبْن عَبَّاس : { تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ }تُخْزُونَ بِهِ . * - حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَد بْن إِسْحَاق , قَالَ : ثنا أَبُو أَحْمَد , قَالَ : ثنا إِسْرَائِيل , عَنْ خُصَيْف , عَنْ عِكْرِمَة , عَنْ اِبْن عَبَّاس , مِثْله . يُقَال مِنْهُ : أَرْهَبْت الْعَدُوّ وَرَهَّبْته , فَأَنَا أُرْهِبهُ وَأُرَهِّبهُ إِرْهَابًا وَتَرْهِيبًا , وَهُوَ الرَّهَب وَالرُّهْب , وَمِنْهُ قَوْل طُفَيْل الْغَنَوِيّ : وَيْل أُمّ حَيّ دَفَعْتُمْ فِي نُحُورهمْ بَنِي كِلَاب غَدَاة الرُّعْب وَالرَّهَب

Now can you tell us kuffar what is al-Tabari saying? Let me guess: da kalam sa3b khales right?

What ignorance is this??

The ignorant is he who tells us that the word turhibuun does not mean they terrorize

can't you understand that the words irhab and irhabi aren't mentioned in the Quran??

So now you agree that the word irhab means terrorism and irhabi means terrorist right? But they are not in the Qur'an? so what? You will not find the word al-sayf in ayat al-sayf either

ya ayuha al-3abqari al-kabeer the Qur'an is not a dictionary or a book of grammar right?

do you speak any other language that I can tell it to you with??? or are you just too dumb to understand what Im saying???

Oh I see you have no answer and you have been expsoed poorly educated person

Secondly you claim to have knowledge that I don't in my own language?

Your command of Arabic language grammar is poor. And let me tell you why: Your real language is not Quranic Arabic or the Arabic of your masters the wahhabis it is Egyptian Arabic the language of Adel Imam and Nageeb el-Rihani now do you get it

and still insisting that you have knowledge that I don't about my native language arabic??? seriously you have issues.

I read this as: you have nothing to say right?

To put your allegations to rest the word yurhibun does not mean to terrorize but it means to make them fear

Then how come it does not say in ayat al-irhab: يخوفون instead of the Quranic يرهبون you tell me and could you tell us readers what does the word used by al-Tabari to explain the meaning of the word يرهبون means and the word is تخزون oh and let me help you this is what it means تفضحوني وتهينوني

What a karitha

Oh and I noticed that you are not using your bogus yurhib anymore and why is that our dear Abd al-Rahman you tell me

and if you claim otherwise then again I urge you to go primary school in an arabic country to learn arabic well because clearly you don't know arabic.

The ignorant is you! Shame on you

Go find some other lie to try to show to the people here poor kaffir. :)

Thank you Allah for making a big time kafir because islam is ridiculous
