Just thinking for precision's sake are we treating all verbs the same? Could we make a difference between the standard verb and the fi3l Naaqis (incomplete verb)? This verb is fi3l Naaqis and although it is past tense it differs slightly from the standard verb.

Do we leave it as it is?

Root itself clarifies the situation, so I think clarification not required at this stage of the project atleast.

verb of anticipation فعل الرَّجَاء, always in the perfect, mostly with following اَن and imperfect verb in the subjunctive مَنْصُوب .
