  • We also learnt in lesson 49 that there are numerous conditional articles. Some of them are considered nouns, and others are considered particles (letters). We also learnt that some of those articles put the present verb in the jussive case, while only two of them (إذا - لَوْ) do not affect the present verb.
  • In this lesson we will study the other two parts of the conditional structure which are the conditional verbفِعْل الشَّرْط  and the answer to the condition جَواب الشَّرْط In-Shā’-Allâh (God willing).
  • We will also learn the types of the answer to the condition, and the cases in which the answer is preceded with the letter (فَ fa) of the answer
