[تَبَّ, aor. ـِ, inf. n. تَبٌّ, and perhaps تَبَبٌ↓ andتَبَابٌ↓ andتَبِيبٌ↓, He, or it, suffered loss, or diminution; or became lost: and perished, or died: as alsoتبّب↓, inf. n. تَتْبِيبٌ: and app. تُبَّ also.] تَبٌّ (M, A, Ḳ) andتَتْبِيبٌ↓ (M, Ḳ) [as inf. ns.] signify The suffering loss, or diminution; or being lost: and perishing, or dying: or [used as substs.] loss, or diminution; or the state of being lost: and perdition, or death: (M,* A, Ḳ:*) and soتَبَابٌ↓, (T, Ṣ, A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) [said to be] a subst. from تَبَّبَهُ, with teshdeed, (Mṣb,) andتَبَبٌ↓ andتَبِيبٌ↓: (Ḳ:) or the last three signify [simply] perdition, or death: (M:) andتَتْبِيبٌ↓ is explained as signifying loss, or diminution, that brings, or leads, to perdition or death; (IAth, TA;) and soتَبَابٌ↓; (Bḍ in cxi. 1;) and the causing to perish. (T, TA.) Hence you say, تَبَّ تَبَابًا↓ [meaning, in an emphatic manner, May he suffer loss, or be lost, or perish]. (Ṣ.) And تَبًّا لَهُ May God decree to him loss, or perdition; or cause loss, or perdition, to cleave to him: (Ṣ, M,* Mṣb,* Ḳ:*) تَبًّا being in the accus. case as an inf. n. governed by a verb understood. (Ṣ.) Andتَبًّا تَبِيبًا↓, [in the CK تَتْبِيبًا,] meaning the same in an intensive, or emphatic, manner: (M, Ḳ:) andتَبًّا تَبَابًا↓. (TA.) And تَبَّتْ يَدَاهُ, (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) and تَبَّتْ يَدُهُ, aor. ـِ, (Mṣb,) inf. n. تَبٌّ andتَبَابٌ↓, but IDrd says that the former of these seems to be the inf. n., and the latter the simple subst., (M,) May his arms, or hands, and his arm, or hand, suffer loss, or be lost, or perish: (T, M, Mṣb, Ḳ, and Bḍ in cxi. 1:) or ‡ may he himself suffer loss, &c., (Mṣb,* and Bḍ ubi suprà,) i. e., ‡ his whole person: (Jel in cxi. 1:) or ‡ his good in the present life and that in the life to come. (Bḍ ubi suprà.)
[Hence,] تَبَّ (A, TA) andتَبْتَبَ↓ (T, Ḳ) ‡ He became an old man: (T, A, Ḳ:) the loss of youth being likened to تَبَابَ. (TA.)
تَبَّ, [aor., accord. to rule, ـُ,] He cut, or cut off, a thing. (Ḳ.) And تُبَّ It was cut, or cut off. (TA.)

تبّبهُ (inf. n. as above, Ṣ,) [He caused him to suffer loss, or to become lost: or] he destroyed him, or killed him. (Ṣ, Ḳ.)

(TA.)
