Our dear Abd al-Rahman who will have no clue what a dictionary means if he puts his hands on one Ibn kathir tells us that the word yurhibuun means yukhawefuun and here is the meaning of the word yukhwef in Arabic خوَّفَ يخوِّف ، تخويفًا ، فهو مُخوِّف ، والمفعول مُخوَّف: • خوَّف فلانًا أخافه ، جعله يخاف ، فزّعه ، أرهبه " خوَّف التلميذَ بأستاذه ، - { إِنَّمَا ذَلِكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ يُخَوِّفُ أَوْلِيَاءَهُ } ". • خوَّفه الأمرَ / خوَّفه من الأمر : فزّعه منه " خوَّفه من مَغَبَّة أفعاله ".

Oh let me see: faza3ahu arhabahu can you tell the readers what this means? and how come Allah did not use the word yukhawef or yukhawefuun instead of this despicable yurhibuun you tell us
