asalam o alikum...''inna is harf mushaba bil fail''.......its not harf nasiba...

I'm sorry you are wrong. inna is in fact both. The full correct i3raab for this particular occurance is:

"inna - harf nasb wa tawkeed mushaba bi-lfi'il"

So actually saying harf nasb is perfect acceptable. You are also right - we could add that it is "mushaba bi-lfi'il". Please see our standard reference, volume 11, page 5.

Any more corrections are most welcome.
