No future after temporal conjunction. The clauses begining with until, when, before, after and if etc. Remain in present tense.

What about : he certainly help you if you will ask in a pleasant manner.

Open condition:
Sub-ordinate clause : simple present
Main clause : simple future

Example: If you study well, you will get first rank.
You will get first rank if you study well

It should be "he will help you certainly...".

Why not asks as the subject is singular?

Please help.

Why not you would ask him?

Would is past form of will.

Pintu said: (Mar 10, 2015)  
Here 'Certainly' is there. So 'When' will be replaced in stead of 'if'. Is not?

What's wrong with " He will certainly help if you will ask him in a pleasant manner "?

Please explain me.
