Examples of the third formation of chapter two: When laamul kalimah is originally a yaa with the condition that ‘Aynul kalimah isn’t one of hurooful Halq (throat letters).  The yaa of the maadhee is changed into an alif and the dhammah is dropped off the yaa in the mudhaari` because it is heavy.

أَتَى – يَأتِي    أَتَى أَمرُ اللهِ

To come

  • (16/1) The event ordained by Allaah will come.
      • here the madhee is used but it is indicating a future happening.  The maadhee form was used for the mudhaari` meaning as if it has already happened indicating that it will most definitely occur.   This is balaghah.  Allaah orders you to believe in the hereafter and this style of speech is for you to believe in these unseen matters jusst as if it has lready occured- as if it is something you have already witnessed.  There are many more examples of this in Quran.
