Grammatical term for inflectable conjunctions as used in the Arabic language(s)?

Conjunctions in the Arabic language can be inflected be adding an affix that indicates the pronoun.E.g. the conjunction 'because' is لِأَن (li'ann), and 'because you' yields لِأَنك (li'annak).\rThis is an example sentence: 'You are sick, **because you** didn't were a scarf'.\nIs there a grammatical term that labels this class of conjunctions.
