Mawta (the dead) is described as nominative (marfu') and as a fa'il (doer of an action).

Actually it is accusative (mansub), because it is a maf'ulun bihi (object).

The sentence is:"How (do) you give life (to) the dead." Obviously, " the dead" is object. So it can not be Marfu' and / or Fa'il.

I think it time to implement the corrections in Corpus to avoid same questions.

Also, is there any order for the discussion pages i.e. date wise etc.
