  • Who vs whom.

    What's the difference?
    You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

    You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.

    The difference between those who know grammar, and those who don't.
    Ya Rab! When you give me wealth, do not take away my happiness. When you give me strength, do not take away my intelligence. When you give me victory, do not take away my humility. When you give me humility, do not take away my dignity.

          Who is when the person is the subject, whom when they are the object.

          Example: Who shall I give my form to?
          Example: To WHOM shall I hand in my form?

          Now rep me Paki. Paki I love you. Rep me.

            Intrinsically, yes.

              Thanks. I learned nothing new.

              The purpose was the two recent threads we have had.

              Also Paki, the first example is wrong. It should be 'WHOM shall I give my form to".

              The subject in the first sentence is I.

              I will still rep you for trying though.

                  No, the first sentence is correct. The subject of the matter is the person. We are asking WHO is the person the form goes to. Hence, it's who.

                    his examples are right. it is "to whom"

                      Nah you're wrong. You needed to learn grammar- I was born with it.
                      [MENTION=101256]srahman33[/MENTION] you are wrong. They are both whom.

                        Nope. His examples are wrong.

                          No Paki, you're wrong. The subject is I. The incorrectly put 'who' is the object of the preposition 'to'.

                          And since it's followed by a preposition, it automatically becomes whom.

                          Rep me Paki.

                            You can't not learn Grammar. You just learned it during childhood, doesn't mean you didn't.

                            And I never learned grammar in the sense you mean.
