I'm a beginner in learning Arabic from the Qur'an and I am using two websites to know the morphology of each word. The other site lists this word as an imperative verb. Do you think they might be correct? I don't know at all since my knowledge about Arabic is almost zero.

(The other site doesn't have contact information, so if you don't mind, I'd like to ask questions here if there are discrepancies between this site and the other site.)

The verb is correctly tagged here. Verb: Perfect; Third person; plural; masculine; active; [Form VIII]; [و] Subject Pronoun, in nominative state; مصدر-إِكْتِيَالٌٌ Verbal noun.

The website is http://quran.bblm.go.id/ , but it's in Indonesian, so I don't know if you can read it. For this particular word, the URL is http://quran.bblm.go.id/?id=81681
