Plural noun, [how someone will know from where "course" has come here]

The confusion will be over if it is correctly tagged as Verbal Noun. It is also used as plural of singular الغَدَاةُ. All translators have used signular in translation, because it is here a Verbal Noun. The following is also a Verbal Noun. Lane quotes it as contra..." الغُدُوُّ is the contr of الرَّوَاحُ [inf. n. of رَاحَ]"
