بم بن بنج


, (Ḳ,) inf. n. تَبْنِينٌ, (TA,) He tied a sheep, or goat, in order to fatten it: (Ḳ:) from بَنَّ بِالْمَكَانِ. (TA.)

4ابنّ بِالْمَكَانِ

, (T, Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. إِبْنَانٌ; (Lth, T;) and بِهِ بَنَّ, aor. يَبِنُّ, (M, Ḳ,) inf. n. بَنٌّ; (M, TA;) but As allows only the former verb; (M, TA;) He remained, continued, stayed, dwelt, or abode, in the place; (T, Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ;) he kept, or clave, to the place. (Lth, T, TA.) Accord. to Z, it is a tropical meaning, from the بَنَّة [i. e. odour] of the camels or cattle [of a stationary people]. (TA.)
And أَبَنَّتِ السَّحَابَةُ (assumed tropical:) The cloud remained, or continued raining, (M, TA,) some days, (TA,) and kept its place. (M.)


He acted, or proceeded, deliberately, not hastily. (T, TA.) An Arab of the desert said to Shureyh, on his desiring to pronounce judgment against him hastily, تَبَنَّنْ, meaning Act thou deliberately, not hastily. (T.)


is a dial. var. of بَلْ, (M, Ḳ,) and so is لَا بَنْ of لَا بَلْ; or, as some say, formed by substitution [of ن for ل; not peculiar to any dialect]. (M.) One says, بَنْ وَٱللّٰهِ لَا آتِيكَ [Nay, by God, I will not come to thee]: Fr says that it is of the dial. of Benoo-Saạd and Kelb; and that he had heard the Báhilees say, لَا بَنْ, meaning بَلْ [or لَا بَلْ]: but IJ says, I do not trace up بَنْ [to any authority] as being an independent word of a particular dialect. (TA.)
[بْنُ and بْنِ and بْنَ, for ٱبْنُ &c.: see art. بنى.]


[Coffee-berries, whether green or roasted, whole or reduced to powder by pounding or grinding;] expl. in the Ḳ as شَىْءٌ يُتَّخَذُ كَالمُرِّىِّ [a certain thing that is taken like the condiment termed مُرِّيّ, which is used to give relish to food or to quicken the appetite]; Ibn-Es-Sim'ánee says, هُوَشَىْءٌ فِى الكَوَامِيخِ [app. meaning it is a thing reckoned among what are termed كواميخ, pl. of كَامَخٌ, which signifies the same as مُرِّىٌّ, for it seems that فى is here used in the sense of مِنْ, or it may be a mistranscription for مِنْ]; the physician Dáwood says, it is the produce of certain trees in El-Yemen; the berries thereof are put into the earth in آذَار [the Syrian month corresponding to March, O. Ṣ.], and it increases, and is gathered in أَبِيب [the Coptic month commencing on the 25th of June, O. Ṣ.; the 7th of July, N. Ṣ.]; it grows to the height of about three cubits, on a stem of the thickness of the thumb, and has a white flower, which is succeeded by a berry like the hazel-nut; sometimes it is cut like beans; and sometimes, when it is divested of its covering, it divides into two halves: it has been proved to be good for alleviating humidities, and cough, and phlegm, and defluxions, and for opening obstructions, and causing a flow of the urine: when roasted, [and pounded or ground,] and well cooked, [i. e. boiled in water,] it is now commonly known by the name of قَهْوَة. (TA.) [Golius, I think, has misunderstood the explanation of this word in the Ḳ: after having given that explanation, and rendered it by “ res quæ sumitur instar المرى Múrriji, ” he adds, “ Pers. ابكامه Abcâma dictæ: hæc sorbitio est rei ex hordeo et frumento paratæ multa cura et arte, quam Malajesa et Halimæus describunt. ” He then mentions the signification of coffee-berries as a second and distinct meaning.]


A place having a fetid odour. (Fr, T, Ḳ.)
It also signifies طِرْقٌ مِنَ الشَّحْمِ (T, Ḳ) and السِّمَنِ (Ḳ, TA: in the CK السَّمْنِ:) [said in the TA to mean قُوَّةٌ مِنْهُمَا, i. e. Strength arising from fat and from fatness: but I think that وَالسِّمَنِ has been added in the Ḳ in consequence of a misunderstanding, and that the meaning is a layer of fat; this meaning seeming to be indicated by the ex. here following, and corroborated by significations of several conjugates of طِرْقٌ, as طَرِيقَةٌ and طَرَقٌ and طِرَاقٌ &c.] One says (T, Ḳ) of a beast (دَابَّة) when it has become fat, (T,) رَكِبَهَا بِنٌّ عَلَىبِنٍ (T, Ḳ *) and طِرْقٌ عَلَى طِرْقٍ (T) [clearly I think, meaning Layer upon layer, of fat, has accumulated upon it.]


A sweet, or pleasant, odour; (Aṣ, AA, T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) such as that of the apple (T, M) and the like, (M,) or the quince: (T:) Sb says that it is a name for a sweet, or pleasant, odour, like خَمْطَةٌ: (M, * TA:) and an unpleasant odour; (Aṣ, T, Ṣ;) a fetid odour; (M, Ḳ;) whence بَنَّةٌ الغَزْلِ [the odour of the yarn] occurring in a saying of 'Alee, respecting a weaver; (M;) which shows that A'Obeyd erred in asserting it to have only the first of the foregoing significations; (IB, TA;) which Suh, in the R, assigns also to بُنَانَةٌ: (TA:) the odour of sheep, or goats, (Ṣ, M,) or of camels or cattle; (Z, TA;) and of the dung of gazelles; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) and of the lodging-places of sheep or goats and of oxen or bulls or cows and of gazelles: (T, M:) and sometimes the lodgingplaces themselves, of sheep or goats: (M, TA:) pl. (in all the senses, M) بِنَانٌ. (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ.)


A seller of بُنّ [or coffee-berries]. (TA.)
Also, [vulgarly pronounced بِنِّى,] A species of fish; (Ḳ;) [the cyprinus Bynni of Forskål; described by him in his Descr. Anim. p. 71;] it is white, and is the best kind [of fish], and abundant in the Nile. (TA.)


The fingers; syn. أَصَابِعُ: (M, Mṣb, Ḳ:) but whether it means peculiarly the اصابع of the hand, or those of the foot also, [i. e. the toes,] is disputed: (TA:) or the ends, or extremities, thereof: (Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ:) said to be so called because by their means are ordered those circumstances whereby man continues in existence; from أَبَنَّ بِالْمَكَانِ: (Mṣb:) mentioned in the Ḳur viii. 12 because therewith one fights, and defends himself: (Er-Rághib, TA:) or it there signifies all the limbs, or members, of the body: (Aboo-Is-hák, M:) or the fingers, or toes, and any other parts of all the limbs, or members: (Zj, TA:) or it means in the Ḳur the شَوَى; (Lth, T, TA;) so in lxxv. 4; (M;) i. e. the arms or hands and the legs or feet: (Lth, T, TA:) accord. to El-Fárisee the meaning of the words in the Ḳur lxxv. 4 is, we are able to make their extremities like those of the camel, so that they should not profit by them in handicraft: (M, TA:) the n. un. is with ة; (Lth, T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) meaning, accord. to Lth, a single إِصْبَع [i. e. finger, or toe]; or, accord. to AHeyth, the whole اصبع; or, as some say, the highest عُقْدَة [or joint] of the اصبع: (T:) the pl. of pauc. is بَنَانَاتٌ; but a pl. of mult. is sometimes used as one of pauc.; and hence the saying of the rájiz,
* خَمْسَ بَنَانٍ قَانِئِ الأَظْفَارِ *
[Five fingers, or ends of fingers, intensely red from the dye of hinnà in the nails], meaning خَمْسًا مِنَ البَنَانِ: and one says, بَنَانٌ مُخَضَّبٌ [Fingers, or ends of fingers, dyed, or much dyed, with hinnà]; for every pl. [or rather coll. gen. n.] between which and its sing., or n. un., there is no difference but ة [added in the latter] may be treated as sing. and masc. (Ṣ.) Lth cites as an ex. of the n. un.,
* لَيْسَ لِحَىٍّ فَوْقَهُمْ بَنَانَهْ *
* لَاهُمَّ أَكْرَمْتَ بَنِى كِنَانَه *
meaning [O God, Thou hast honoured the sons of Kináneh: there belongs not to any tribe] excel-lence of the measure of a finger above them. (T, TA.)


Deliberate and intelligent: (AA, T, Ḳ:) from بَنَّ بِالْمَكَانِ. (TA.)


n. un. of بَنَانٌ. (Lth, T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ.)
See also what next follows.


: see بَنَّةٌ.
Also A meadow, or verdant tract of land somewhat watery, (AA, T, M, Ḳ,) producing herbage, (M, Ḳ,) and adorned with flowers; (TA;) and so بَنَانَةٌ. (M.)


Remaining, continuing, staying, dwelling, or abiding, in a place. (T, TA.) Applied to a mixture of urine and dung (عَبَس) upon the tail [of a camel &c.], it may mean Cleaving, and sticking: or it may be from بَنَّةٌ signifying “ a fetid odour ” [so as to mean having a fetid odour]: thus, in this case, it may be either a part. n. or a possessive epithet. (M, TA.) It signifies also Having the odour of the dung of gazelles; applied to a covert, or hiding-place, of those animals, among trees. (Ṣ, Ḳ. *)
