Can we change the tagging for the pronoun from:

PRON- 2nd person masculine plural personal pronoun.. to

PRON- 2nd person masculine plural object pronoun?

Since it acts as the object of the previous direct verb (advise you). The ل is added for emphatic purposes otherwise the كم should be attached to the verb.

wallahu a'alam
