If it is about reward, then it should be أجر rather than أجرأ .vijayjohn wrote:I know this is super-slow (sorry ), but I read both parts of الأسد وأصحابه.
I'm still a little confused by the sentence وليس هناك أعظم أجرأ من تأمين نفس خائفة. Does that mean something like 'there is no greater reward than (the reward inherent in) protecting a fearful soul'?

Why isn't it "اشتركا"? Does it have to be in the singular form when the subject is already clearly marked as dual?

Is Wiktionary wrong? Or do they both mean 'give back!' or what?
I'm also surprised that the Arabic version of the story is so short.
