Can we add the word 'subject' to the tagging here?

N- nominative masculine subject noun

The word here is a collective noun (has no singular as such and some collective nouns can have plurals) and so do we label it as plural or singular or leave it out altogether?

wallahu a'alam

Thank you kindly for your suggestion. "Subject" is a syntactic role, one of the reasons for a word being in the nominative case. This information is not yet being included on this page - inshallah we will include the reasons and roles for a word being in different cases at a future stage - for now this word is already marked as a subject in the treebank. Please see this link: http://corpus.quran.com/treebank.jsp?chapter=7&verse=75.
