Return a part of a verbal paradigm. If there is more than one alternative, return only one. Parameters are the same as for {{ar-conj}} except that unnamed parameter 1 is the requested part and all remaining unnamed parameters are shifted over by one.

This template can also handle assimilated verbs, hollow verbs, final-weak verbs, verbs with hamza and verbs with doubled last letter or a combination of these. It also correctly handles most irregular verbs.


  • 1= to indicate requested part; see below
  • 2= to indicate verb form; Roman numerals accepted. In the vast majority of cases, just specify the Roman numeral, but can also include the weakness, e.g. 'I-sound' to force conjugation as a sound verb (rarely needed; see {{ar-conj}}).
  • Parameters specifying radicals and vowels
    • For form I:
      • 3 = past vowel(s)
      • 4 = non-past vowel(s)
      • 5 or I = first radical
      • 6 or II = second radical
      • 7 or III = third radical
    • For other triliteral forms:
      • 3 or I = first radical
      • 4 or II = second radical
      • 5 or III = third radical
    • For quadriliteral forms:
      • 3 or I = first radical
      • 4 or II = second radical
      • 5 or III = third radical
      • 6 or IV = fourth radical
  • Other parameters
    • variant=short, variant=long, variant=both: Used for the irregular verb حَيَّ or حَيِيَ, and for the related verb اِسْتَحْيَا or اِسْتَحَى; see {{ar-conj}} for more information
