Default B3 l19 مِثْلُ ذَوُو

In response to posting:

wa alaykumussalam

(1) Yes ذوو
is mudaaf ilayhi, but here the form of the word is meant, not its
meaning. So it remains in its original form. Here is an example in
Look at <I>: it is a word, not a letter.
Here we are discussing the form of the word <I>. If we had its meaning
in mind we would have said, "Look at me".
Here is another example. We say : سورة الكافرون
because we want to mention the name of the surah.

(2) Both معنى وإعراباً
are tamyiz. As you know tamyiz is used to specify an ambiguous word.
If we say 'A is like B' we do not know in which aspect they are like
each other. So it requires a tamyiz. So we say:
زيد مثل بلال تلاوة
Zaid is like Bilal in recitation.

Hope this has helped you understand the problem.
