What are the advantages of beginning a description with إذا "when"?
- It makes the event being described certain to occur. “When Zaid comes…” means that there is no doubt that he will come.
- It creates anticipation in the mind of the listener to find out what will happen when the first event occurs.
- If the first clause of the conditional is prolonged with vivid descriptions, the listener is gripped in a state of fear, or hope, depending on the nature of the descriptions as he waits for the final response to these conditions.
