The absolute Object (الْمَفْعُولُ الْمُطْلَقُ)- The Masdar (الْمَصْدَرُ) , the verbal noun is the word in the accusative case that occupies the third place in the conjugaison of the verb such as:
كَتَبَ = he wrote
يَكْتُبٌ = he writes
كِتَابَةً = a writing
- The absolute object is a verbal noun that comes after its verb and that is always in the accusative case.
- There are two types of absolute objects: Explicit and implicit.
If the absolute object corresponds to the verb and if it is derived from its same root, than it is explicit, such as: زَارَ = he visited زِيَارَةً = a visit.
On the other hand, if the verbal noun agrees with the verb only in the meaning but not in the wording, then it is implicit, such as:
He was exuberantly happy
