The Particle غۇ|قۇ to Express the Certainty of a Conditional Event

بىر پەرەزىي ھادىسىنىڭ مۇئەييەنلىكىنى بىلدۈرىدىغان «غۇ|قۇ» يۈكلىمىسى

When added to a conditional phrase, the particle غۇ|قۇ serves to emphasize the speaker's belief that the event in the phrase that follows will surely occur if the action in the conditional is fulfilled. As such, this basically conveys the speaker's opinion of the action as being sufficient for the stated outcome, and may be seen as being analogous to the English "if..., then surely...".

Of course it's not a problem if you go.
