The response to the command clause is the following and they shall come to you on foot walking rijāl plural of rājil similar in pattern to qā’im ‘standing’ and its plural qiyām and riding on every lean camel that is on every emaciated camel dāmir this term may be used to refer to both male and female camels. They shall come that is the lean camels by grammatical agreement with the feminine verb form from every deep ravine from every distant route
