    The word جار in الجار والمجرور, is it a ismu faa3il ? (I think that مجرور is a ismu marfuu3).

    Is it derived from the verb جَرَّ ? (I think that
    جارِر becomes جارّ, what do you think ?)

    Yes, جار is اسم فاعل and مجرور is اسم مفعول and both are derived from جرّ.

    I suppose you could say الحروف الجارّة as a translation for "genitivizing particles."

    What does everyone think?
