Structures for constructing Optative sentences


## STRUCTURE: MAY+YOU+VERB+EXTENSION.

Example:
May you live in the hell in peace?
** But if we are praying to someone else then the structure will be:


## ’MAY+THE PERSON TO WHOM WE ARE PRAYING+VERB+ OBJECT+EXTENSION’

Example:
May Allah punish/bless us all.
