92. What is an adverbial qualification?
An adverbial qualification is an infinitive which is mentioned after the verb in order to describe the cause of the verb. For example: وَقَفَ الجُندُ إجلالاً للإمیرِ (The army stopped in order to respect the commander.)
93. Is an adverbial qualification always in the accusative state?
The adverbial qualification can either be:
• in the accusative state with the accusative sign, for example: هربتُ خوفاً (I fled out of fear.) This is usually the case when the infinitive does not have an alif-lām and is not prefixed to another word.
• in the accusative state with the genitive sign, for example: ضربتُ وَلدي لتأدیبهِ (I hit my son to teach him manners.) This is usually the case when the infinitive does have an alif-lām and is prefixed to another word.
