The Command / Imperative

Verbs in Arabic have three tenses: the fi’l al-maadi (perfect / past tense), the fi’l al-mudaari’ (imperfect / present tense), and the fi’l al-amr (command / imperative). In a previous post we gave the tables for the first two. The following is the table for the third one: the fi’l al-amr. It is shorter than the other two since it only applies to the second person.

    Please note that this won’t apply to all verbs.
