      Ra is a word that is placed after another word to signify that it is an object. Meez is table and by placing ra after it, you are stating that the table is an object. Hope this helps!

    understand! another question. Meez is an object ¿but why do i have to put ‘ra’ if everyone knows that is an object?

      In every day language it is sometimes left out, but if you don’t put it in the sentence becomes a little ambiguous. Persian isn’t the only language that has object markers. Japanese and Korean also have them. But in German it’s the article that changes in accusative and dative.

        Ra is the direct obeject marker but is only used if the noun is definite. “Miz ra tamiz kardam” means I cleaned the table. “Yek miz didam” means I see a table. (Yek is a or one).
