My dear Fahad. ... Well like I say: old civilizations are not conjured away not by Arabian imperialism.)

Now a bit of Arabic grammar will go a long way here:

1. The word al-Qatil means the killer.

2. The word al-Muqatil means the fighter.

3. The word al-Mujahid means: the fighter in a holy war or jihad. Ref: see "Hans Wehr Arabic dictionary page 143A "mjahd (meem jeem alif heh dal) Mujaahid pl: Mujaahidun: warrior fighter (in a holy war or jihad) ..."

See also Lisan al-3Arab pages a66. But you do not know any Arabic so what is the use?

And here is your bonus for today:

Mujtahid means: he who strives to improve himself.

If you do not get this you would really be beyond help.

What is really strange about you is that you do not seem to know any Arabic and you still have the audacity to pretend to know Arabic grammar! ...
