The imperative (الأمر) for Measure VII is regular and easy to form. We can form the Imperative by follow the traditional method.
For example, يَنْصَرِفُ (to turn away, go away from) becomes إِنْصَرِفْ.
- Start with the third person singular imperfect tense. Ex. يَنْصَرِفُ
- Change the final vowel to a sukuun. يَنْصَرِفُ becomes يَنْصَرِفْ
- Remove the prefix. يَنْصَرِفْ becomes نْصَرِفْ
- Since the first letter carries a sukuun, it requires a helping vowel. The helping vowel will be a kasra in all M7 verbs. إِنْصَرِفْ
This form of the imperative is used when talking to a single male. We add suffixes to this stem to indicate number and gender of who we are talking to.
