    It derives from the root word/letters s-m-r, this means that its original form was seen fatha meem fatha raa fatha. Another example of this would be the verb i do which is faa fatha ayn fatha laam fatha. The tense, gender and amount (singular, dual or plural) changes depending on harakah/I’raab or letters added.
