Now in part one I explained to you how the root system JHD works and the two stems Yujahid and Yajtahid and I'm making it clear again tthat stems of a root have nothing in common except their common root. Do you understand now?
And now I will add another stem from the root JHD and it is YIF3AL and now we have the words:
1. Yijhad or he exerts (pysical that is) himself
2. Majhud means he (is tired from) exertion
3. Juhd means exertion (physical that is).
See? nothing to do with your Arabic.
Now feel free to prove me wrong.
Notice that Kutub al Nahw al-3Arabia wa Ma3ajim al-lughat al-3Arabiya (oh I forgot that you do not know any Arabic) or Arabic books of garmmar and Arabic dictionaries will be accepted as evidence.
Wikipedia, Muslim web sites, information from tablighees, wannabe Arabs and converts to Islam will not be regarded as evidence.
