    • We will also learn the feminine form of the Relative Pronoun. We have already learnt the masculine form of the Relative Pronoun الَّذِي in Lesson 09 section 004. We know that a Relative Pronoun is a pronoun used to show the reference or relation between the nouns. The Relative Pronoun is called الاسْمُ الْمَوْصُولُ in Arabic. If the Relative Pronoun refers to a human being it is to be translated "who" and if it refers to non human beings it is translated "which / that".
