This article demonstrates that examination of the content, context and the exegesis of each verse of the Qur'ān containing an active participle connected to a finite verb should be examined before determining any rules concerning this syntactic structure. The article focuses on the case of Q 6:95, in which a verb in imperfect is followed by active participle and both are derived from the root hrǧ. The approach that was chosen is to search in the exegetical literature for explanations of this structure. As will be shown, this literature provides syntactic, semantic, aspectual and rhetorical explanations for the difference between the active participle and the finite verb. This approach stands in contrast to the one presented in modern research literature and argues that yuhriǧu and muhriǧ have the same aspectual and syntactic value and thus are interchangeable.
