Page: 144*

Example: “لا جَرَمَ أَنَّهُ جُزْءٌ مُهِمّ”

* The Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic, 4th Edition

** I translated لا جرم as “there’s no doubt” in the example sentence because the negative construction in English mirrors the Arabic, so the original structure is reflected. However, you could equally say “it’s certainly an important part”.
