The hiya (20:18:2) Zameer which is feminine is used for ʿaṣāya which is masculine.

Why feminine Zameer?

Bro. Maqbool, what is the proof that aṣā is masculine? In fact, the same ayat has three other references to it: ʿalayhā (20:18:5), bihā (20:18:7), and fīhā (20:18:11). Isn't that enough indication that the word is grammatically feminine?

Then should the description of (20:18:3) be feminine noun instead of masculine?

Yes, it should be feminine.
