Healthy Salim Verbs (الفعل الصحيح السالم)

The Healthy Salim Verb does not have a Hamza, doubled letter or sick letter.

Ex.: – خرجَ محمد من الفصل

Mohammad went out of the class.

أُدْرُسْيَدْرُسُدَرَسَ
اِجْلِسْيَجْلِسُجَلَسَ
اِذْهَبْيَذْهَبُذَهَبَ

Rules to keep in mind:

If the third letter of the present tense has Kasra or Fatha, the first letter of the imperative will have Kasra. If it is Dhamma, then the first letter of the imperative will also be Dhamma.

Questions:

How do you determine the imperative for each of these verbs if you were speaking to a female?

Not sure? Read the section on imperatives again.
