Saim wrote:Sorry, forgot about puting the links for those two. They're from MemriTV, a US-based think tank that translates Middle Eastern media for Western audiences. I'm a bit ambivalent about them, as it seems they're trying to push a specific narrative (lots of Islamophobes follow their stuff, to give you an idea). But it's great practice and besides the usual crazies they also translate lots of progressive voices, like the above Nasser Dashti.
There's no transcription, just subtitles (I was looking up the words based on what I heard, failing that doing English --> Arabic based on the subtitles).

Yeah this ف is ubiquitous in MSA. In particular it is used a lot in the Quran, for example in this ayah:
It is spelt together with the next word.
