Can you tell us kuffar what does the name of this movie (from 1994 by عادل امام the great Egyptian actor Adel Imam) by the name of الارهابي or el-Irhani mean? and here is a link to the movie on youtube so you can refresh your memory


Hint: el-irhabi means the terrorist (m)

For the readers: I really feel sorry for our dear Abd al-Rahman because they do not teach his likes real Arabic grammar in Egypt and his likes only learn it by pure fahlawa and in his case by reading and quoting what ignorant tablighees/Pakistanis write and post on the web

Now and I hate to get into explaining Arabic grammar or any grammar as it is always a very dry subject but I will try and be as clear and short as I can

1. Here in the west we use what is called the eight derived forms and in the case or the root RHB where the word irhabi or terrorist comes from it belongs to Form IV or yuf3il or يُفعلْ

So is the case of RHB yurhib (and this is what our dear Abd al-Rahman used) means he terrorizes, and Irhab means terrorism and yurhibuun and this is the word that one would find in Q8:60 means They terrorize

2. it is very clear to me that he is using what poorly educated Arabs use where their starting point is not the root of the word as it should be but the present tense of the pattern and this is why he used the word yurhib or he terrorizes and had no clue that yurhib,(he terrorizes) yurhibuun (they terrorize) and irhab (terrorism) and irhabi (terrorist) all belong to the same root RHB

Now it is your chance to shine our dear Abd al-Rahman who quotes as references texts written by ignorant tablighees aka Pakistanis
