The future progressive indicative tense describes an ongoing occurrence (→ progressive aspect) in the future, which is based on the known state of affairs (→ indicative mood). Persian distinguishes between past and non-past tenses. The present and future are expressed with the same conjugational forms. Regarding future progressive, it is expressed using the same grammatical form as present progressive. Therefore, a verbal form like دارم می‌روم (dâram miravam) can mean “I am going” and “I will be going” depending on the context.

Negative form

Since the progressive aspect is only used for affirmative actions, it does not have negative form.
