Verbal form concordance Idea and some work

This data has been taken from http://corpus.quran.com/verbs.jsp on 28-December-2010 and sorted by root and
then gathered together and sorted by verbal form concordance as verbal form concordance option is not yet
available on http://corpus.quran.com/verbs.jsp and only sort by frequency and sort by root option is given. This
document is by Asim Iqbal 2nd http://asimiqbal2nd.110mb.com . For active & passive participles and masdars
(verbal nouns), refer to my other document focusing on lemmas. 3 Improvements have been made in column Form in
Blue Text at last 3 entries and sorting has been done. The translations directly taken from above site as it itself states
"are brief summaries (glosses). An Arabic verb may have a range of meanings depending on context". For revised
versions keep checking above 2 sites.
