حا حب حبر

1. ⇒ حبّ

حَبَّ [signifying He, or it, was, or became, loved, beloved, an object of love, affected, liked, or approved, is originally حَبُبَ or حَبِبَ]. You say, حَبَّ إِلَىَّ هٰذَا الشَّىْءُ, [aor. ـُ {يَحْبُبُ} or ـَ,] inf. n. حُبٌّ, This thing was, or became, an object of love to me. (Ḳ. [The meaning is there indicated, but not expressed. In the CK, الشَّىءَ is erroneously put for الشَّىْءُ.]) And حَبُبْتُ إِلَيْهِ I became loved, beloved, or an object of love, to him: [said to be] the only instance of its kind except شَرُرْتُ and لَبُبْتُ. (Ḳ.) And مَا كُنْتَ حَبِيبًا وَلَقَدْ حَبِبْتَ, with kesr, Thou wast not loved, and thou hast become loved. (Ṣ.) See also 5.

Root: حب - Entry: 1. Signification: A2

حَبَّ, formed from حَبُبَ, by making the former ب quiescent and incorporating it into the latter, is also a verb of praise [signifying Beloved, lovely, pleasing, charming, or excellent, is he, or it]; (TA;) and so حُبَّ, [which is more common,] formed from the same, by incorporating the former ب into the latter after transferring the ḍammeh of the former to the ح. (ISk, Ṣ, TA.) A poet says,

* وَزَادَهُ كَلَفًا فِى الحُبِّ أَنْ مَنَعَتْ *
* وَحَبَّ شَيْئًا الَى الانْسَانِ مَا مُنِعَا *

[And her denying increased his devotion in love: for lovely, as a thing, to man, is that which is denied]. (TA.) And Sá'ideh says,

* هَجَرَتْ غَضُوبُ وَحَبَّ مَنْ يَتَجَنَّبُ *
* وَعَدَتْ عَوَادٍ دُونَ وَلْيِكَ تَشْعِبُ *

[Ghadoob hath forsaken thee, (and lovely is the person who withdraweth far away,) and obstacles in the way of thy drawing near have occurred to separate thee and her]. (Ṣ, TA.) [See also حَبَّذَا, below.]

Root: حب - Entry: 1. Signification: A3

[Both are also verbs of wonder.] You say, حَبَّ بِفُلَانٍ, (Aṣ, Ṣ, and so in copies of the Ḳ,) and حُبَّ, (I’Aḳ p. 236, [where both forms are mentioned as correct,] and so in the CK,) How beloved, or lovely,, &c., is such a one (Aṣ, Ṣ, Ḳ) to me! (Aṣ, Ṣ.) [See also 4.] A'Obeyd and Fr read this حَبَّ, saying that it means حَبُبَ بفلان, and that the former ب is rendered quiescent by the suppression of its ḍammeh, and incorporated into the latter.

(Ḳ, A,* TA.) مَا أَحَبْتُ ذٰلِكَ, in the dial. of the tribe of Suleym, is for ما أَحْبَبْتُهُ [I loved not, or liked not, that]; like ظَنْتُ for ظَنَنْتُ, and ظَلْتُ and ظِلْتُ for ظَلِلْتُ. (Lḥ, TA.) [أُحِبُّ أَنْ يَكوُنَ كَذَا may be rendered I would that it were thus, or that such a thing were.] It is said of Ohod, in a trad., هُوَ جَبَلٌ يُحِبُّنَا وَنُحِبُّهُ, meaning It is a mountain whose inhabitants love us, and whose inhabitants we love: or it may mean we love the mountain itself, because it is in the land of people whom we love.

حُبٌّ Love; affection; syn. وُدٌّ, (A,) or وِدَادٌ; (Ḳ;) inclination of the nature, or natural disposition, towards a thing that pleases, or delights; (Kull p. 165;) contr. of بُغْضٌ: (Mgh, TA:) حُبٌّ andحِبٌّ↓ andحُبَّةٌ↓ [this being said in the Ṣ to be syn. with حُبٌّ and in the Ḳ to be syn. with مَحَبَّةٌ, and it is used as an inf. n. in an ex. cited voce دَاحٌ in art. دوح,] andحُبَابٌ↓ (Ṣ, Ḳ) andحِبَابٌ↓ (Ḳ) andمَحَبَّةٌ↓ (Ṣ) signify the same; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) i. e., as above. (Ḳ.) The degrees of حُبّ are as follow: first, هَوًى, the “inclining of the soul, or mind;” also applied to the “object of love itself:” then, عَلَاقَةٌ, “love cleaving to the heart;” so termed because of the heart's cleaving to the object of love: then, كَلَفٌ, “violent, or intense, love;” from كُلْفَةٌ signifying “difficulty, or distress, or affliction:” then, عِشْقٌ, [“amorous desire;” or “passionate love;”] in the Ṣ, “excess of love;” and in the language of the physicians, “a kind of melancholy:” then, شَغَفٌ, “ardour of love, accompanied by a sensation of pleasure;” like لَوْعَةٌ and لَاعِجٌ; the former of which is “ardour of love;” and the latter, “ardent love:” then, جَوًى, “inward love;” and “violence of amorous desire,” or “of grief, or sorrow:” then, تَتَيُّمٌ, “a state of enslavement by love:” then تَبْلٌ, “lovesickness:” then, وَلَهٌ, “distraction, or loss of reason, in love:” and then, هُيَامٌ “a state of wandering about at random in consequence of overpowering love.” (Kull ubi suprà.) [Accord. to the Mṣb, it is a simple subst.: but accord. to the Ḳ, an inf. n.; and hence,] حُبًّا لِمَا أَحْبَبْتُمْ, meaning أُحِبُّ حُبًّا [I love with loving, i. e. much, what ye have loved]. (Ḥar p. 186.) Hence the phrase,نَعَمْ وَحُبَّةً↓ وَكَرَامَةً [Yea; and with love and honour will I do what thou requirest: or for the sake of the love and honour that I bear thee: or حبّة may be here used for حُبًّا to assimilate it in termination to كرامة: see what follows]. (Ṣ, TA.) Hence also the saying of Abu-l-ʼAṭà Es-Sindee,

* فَوَٱللّٰهِ مَا أَدْرِى وَإِنِّى لَصَادِقٌ *
* أَدَآءٌ عَرَانِى مِنْ حُبَابِكِ أَمْ سِحْرُ *

[And by God, I know not (and indeed I am speaking truth) whether disease have befallen me in consequence of love of thee, or enchantment]: (Ṣ, TA:) but IB says that the reading best known is مِنْ حِبَابِكِ↓; and that حِباب, here, may be an inf. n. of حَابَبْتُهُ; or it may be pl. of حُبٌّ, like as عِشاشٌ is of عُشٌّ; (TA;) or it may be an inf. n. of حَبَبْتُهُ: some also readمِنْ حَبَابِكِ↓, with fet-ḥ to the ح, said to mean on account of the love of thee, and of the main amount thereof: (Ḥam p. 26:) and some read مِنْ جَنَابِكِ “from thy part” [or “from thee”]. (TA.)

Also a Persian word, arabicized, (AḤát, Ṣ, Mṣb,) from خُنْب, (AḤát, TA,) [or خُبْ or خُپْ,] i. q. خَابِيَةٌ, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) A jar, (Ḳ, MF,) whether large or small, used for preparing wine: (MF:) or a large jar: (Ḳ:) or one for water: (IDrd, TA:) or the four pieces of wood upon which is placed a two-handled, or two-eared, jar: (Ḳ, TA: [in the CK, by a misplacement of words, this last signification is assigned to حَبَاب:]) pl. [of pauc.] أَحْبَابٌ (Ḳ) and [of mult.] حِبَابٌ and حِبَبَةٌ. (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ.) From this last signification is [said to be] derived the phrase حُبًّا وَكَرَامَةً [pronounced حُبًّا وَكَرَامَهْ, lit. A jarstand and a cover will I give thee, or the like], كرامة signifying the “cover” of a jar, (Ḳ, TA,) whether of wood or of baked clay. (TA.) [If this be the true derivation, the phrase may have originated from a person's asking of another the loan or gift of a jar, and the latter's replying “Yea; and I will give thee a jar-stand and a cover;” meaning “I will do what thou requirest, and more:” but this phrase is now, and perhaps was in early times, generally used, agreeably with the more common significations of the two words, in the sense assigned above to the phrase حُبَّةً وَكَرَامَةً.]

حَبِيبٌ / حَبِيبَةٌ

حَبِيبٌ A person loved, beloved, affected, liked, or approved; (Ṣ,* A, Mṣb,* Ḳ;) as alsoمَحْبُوبٌ↓ andمُحَبٌّ↓, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) of which two the former is generally used for the latter, (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA,) in like manner as are used مَزْكُومٌ and مَحْزُونٌ and مَجْنُونٌ and مَكْزُوزٌ and مَقْرُورٌ, each of which has its proper verb of the measure فُعِلَ, (TA,) andحِبٌّ↓ (Ṣ, Ḳ) andحُبَابٌ↓ andحُبًّةٌ↓, which last is also applied to a female, and has for its pl. حُبَبٌ: (Ḳ:) the fem. of حَبِيبٌ is with ة {حَبِيبَةٌ}; (Mṣb, Ḳ;) and so is that ofمَحْبُوبٌ↓, (Ḳ, TA,) [and that ofمُحَبٌّ↓,] and that ofحِبٌّ↓: (TA:) the pl. of حَبِيبٌ is أَحِبَّآءُ, instead of حُبَبَآءُ, which would be the reg. pl. but for the repetition of the ب; and the pl. of حَبِيبَةٌ is حَبَائِبُ: (Mṣb:) the pl. ofحِبٌّ↓ is أَحْبَابٌ [a pl. of pauc.] and حِبَّانٌ (Ḳ) and حُبَّانٌ (MF) and حُبُوبٌ and حِبَبَةٌ andحُبٌّ↓, which last is rare (عَزِيزٌ) [as a pl.], or is a quasi-pl. n. (Ḳ.) Thoughمُحَبٌّ↓ is uncommon it occurs in the following verse of 'Antarah:

* وَلَقَدْ نَزَلْت فَلَا تَظُنّى غَيْرَهُ *
* مِنِّى بِمُنْزِلَةِ المُحَبِّ المُكْرَمِ *

[And thou hast taken (and imagine not otherwise), in respect of me, i. e. of my heart, the place of the beloved, the honoured; or become in the condition of the beloved,, &c.]. (T, TA.)

حُبَاحِبٌ, (Ḳ,) or أَبُو حُبَاحِبٍ, (Ṣ,) [A kind of fire-fly;] a fly that flies in the night, (Ḳ,) resembling fire, (Ṣ,) emitting rays like a lamp: (Ḳ:) AḤn says that حباحب and ابوحباحب were both unknown to him, and that nothing respecting them had been heard by him from the Arabs; but that some people asserted the insect thus called to be the يَرَاع, a moth that, when it flies by night, no person not knowing it would doubt to be a spark of fire: Aboo-Tálib says, as on the authority of Arabs of the desert, that حباحب is the name of a flying thing longer than the common fly, and slender, that flies between sunset and nightfall, resembling a spark of fire: (TA:) or, accord. to Aṣ, it is a flying thing, like the common fly, with a wing that becomes red; when it flies appearing at a distance like a lighted piece of fire-wood. (Ḥar p. 500.) نَارُ الحُبَاحِبِ (Ṣ, Ḳ) and نَارُأَبِى حُبَاحِبٍ and simply الحُبَاحِبُ (Ṣ) mean The fire of the fly above mentioned: or of El-Hobáhib or Aboo-Hobáhib: (TA:) [for] El-Hobáhib, (Ṣ,) or Aboo-Hobáhib, (Ḳ,) is said to have been a niggardly man, who never lighted any but a faint fire, fearing to attract guests, so that his fire became proverbial. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) El-Kumeyt says, describing swords,

* يَرَى الرَّاؤُونَ بِالشَّفَرَاتِ مِنْهَا *
* كَنَارِ أَبِى حُبَاحِبَ وَالظُّبِينَا *

[The beholders see, in the sides of the blades thereof, and the extremities, the semblance of the fire of the fire-fly]: (Ṣ:) here the poet has made حباحب imperfectly decl., regarding it as a fem. [proper] name [of the fly above mentioned]. (TA.) Or نارالحباحب (Ṣ, Ḳ) and simply الحباحب (Ṣ) signify The fire that is struck by a horse's hoofs: (Fr, Ṣ:) or the sparks of fire that are made to fly forth in the air by the collision of stones: or the sparks that fall from the pieces of wood that are used for producing fire [by means of friction]: (Ḳ:) or they are derived from حَبْحَبَةٌ, (IAạr, Ḳ,) signifying “weakness,” (IAạr, TA,) [and their meaning is faint fire.]

Root: حب - Entry: حُبَاحِبٌ Signification: A2

أُمُّ حُبَاحِبٍ A flying insect resembling the [species of locust called] جُنْدَب, (Ḳ,* TA,) spotted with yellow and green: when people see it, they say, بَرِّدِى يَا حُبَاحِبُ [Spread forth thy wings (بُرْدَيْكِ), hobáhib]; whereupon it spreads its two wings, which are adorned with red and yellow. (TA.)


حَبَّذَا, meaning حَبِيبٌ, as in the phrase حَبَّذَا الأَمْرُ [Loved, beloved, affected, loved, or approved, is the thing, or affair; or lovely, charming, or excellent, is it]; (Ḳ;) and in حَبَّذَا زَيْدٌ [Loved, beloved,, &c., is Zeyd]; (Ṣ;) is composed of حَبَّ, (Sb, Fr, Ṣ, Ḳ,) a verb of praise, in the pret. form, invariable, originally حَبُبَ, (Fr, Ṣ,) and ذَا, (Sb, Fr, Ṣ, Ḳ,) its agent, (Ṣ,) which together constitute it a single word, (Sb, Ṣ, Ḳ,) a noun, (Sb, Ḳ,) or occupying the place of a noun, (Ṣ,) governing the noun [particularized by praise] that follows it in the nom. case; (Sb, Ṣ, Ḳ;) the place that it occupies in construction making it virtually in the nom. case as an inchoative, and the noun that follows it being its enunciative: (Ṣ:) [but see what follows.] It is used in the same manner as a prov.; (Sb, Ḳ;) [i. e., it is not altered to agree in number or gender with the noun particularized by praise, which follows it;] remaining the same when used in the dual and pl. and fem. sense; so that one says, حبّذا زَيْدٌ and الزَّيْدَانِ and الزَّيْدُونَ and هِنْدٌ and أَنْتَ and أَنْتُمَا and أَنْتُمْ [&c.]; (Ibn-Keysán, TA;) and حبّذا ٱمْرَأَةٌ, not حَبَّذِهِ المَرْأَةُ; (Sb, Ṣ, Ḳ;*) which shows that the noun that follows it may not be regarded as a substitute for ذا: (Ṣ:) [but see what follows.] It is allowable, but bad, to say, زَيْدٌ حَبَّذَا. (TA.) [There are, however, various opinions respecting حبّذا and the noun that follows it.] Some hold that حبّذا is a noun, composed of حَبَّ and ذا, and is an inchoative, and that the noun particularized by praise is its enunciative; or that the former is an enunciative, and the latter an inchoative, reversing the usual order: others hold that حَبَّ is a verb in the pret. form; and ذا, its agent; and that the noun particularized by praise may be an inchoative, of which حبّذا is the enunciative; or it may be an enunciative of which the inchoative is suppressed, so that حبّذا زَيْدٌ is for حبّذا هُوَ زَيْدٌ [Loved, or beloved,, &c., is this person: he is Zeyd], or حبّذا المَمْدُوحُ زَيْدٌ [loved,, &c., is this person: the person praised is Zeyd]: others hold that حبّذا is a pret. verb, composed of حَبَّ and ذا, and that the noun following it is its agent; but this is the weakest of opinions: one also says, in dispraise, لَاحَبَّذَا زَيْدٌ. (I’Aḳ p. 235.)


حَابٌّ An arrow that falls [in the space] around the butt: pl. حَوَابُّ. (Ḳ.)


أَحَبُّ [More, and most, loved, beloved,, &c. You say, هٰذَا أَحَبُّ إِلَىَّ مِنْ ذَاكَ This is more an object of love, affection, liking, or approval, or is more lovely, charming, or pleasing, to me than that. And هُوَ أَحَبُّهُمْ إِلَىَّ He is the most beloved of them to me.]
