'Athartu 'Alaiha - 'Athartu 'Alaihi


Explanation:
"Something" in Arabic could take the form either of a feminine or masculine gender.
So, in the answer box above the first suggestion would be if the "something" you're looking for is of a feminine gender and the other is masculine.
The above are alternatives to the terms suggested by Fuad in the previous posting.
