[2. (خصّب)]

[خصّب, inf. n. تَخْصِيبٌ, It rendered fruitful; it fecundated: so in the present day: see an instance voce بَاقِلَّى.]


4. (اخصب)

اخصب, (A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. إِخْصَابٌ; (TA;) [and some add خِصْبٌ, as another inf. n.; but ISd holds this to be a simple subst.; (see 4 in art. ريف;)] andخَصِبَ↓, (A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) aor. ـَ; (Mṣb, Ḳ;) andخَصَبَ↓, aor. ـِ, inf. n. خِصْبٌ; (Ḳ;) It (a place) abounded, or became abundant, with herbage [or with the produce of the earth], and with the goods, conveniences, or comforts, of life; (A, Ḳ;) [was, or became, fruitful;] had increase; had plenty, or abundance; (Mṣb;) [contr. of أَجْدَبَ and جَدِبَ or جَدَبَ and جَدُبَ:] and اخصبت الأَرْضُ [the land, or earth, abounded, or became abundant, with herbage &c.]. (JK, Ṣ.) إِخْصَابٌ andاِخْتِصَابٌ↓ are both from الخِصْبُ [but the precise meaning of the latter is not explained]. (Lth, JK, TA.) In the saying of the rájiz,

* لَقَدْ خَشِيتُ أَنْ أَرَى جَدِبَّا *
* فِى عَامِنَا ذَا بَعْدَ أَنْ أَخْصَبَّا *

[Verily I feared to see drought, or barrenness, or dearth, in this our year, after it had been abundant in herbage &c.], أَخْصَبَّا is put for أَخْصَبَا: but accord. to one reading, it is اِخْصَبَّا↓, of the measure اِفْعَلَّ, though this is generally employed for colours; and the incipient ا is rendered disjunctive of necessity, for the sake of the metre. (L. [Respecting جِدَبَّا, see جَدْبٌ.]) You say also, اخصب جَنَابُ القَوْمِ, meaning The tract surrounding the people [became abundant with herbage &c.]. (Ṣ, TA.)

verb form: 4.(signification - A2)

اخصبوا They attained, obtained, had, or became in the condition of having, abundance of herbage [or of the produce of the earth], and of the goods, conveniences, or comforts, of life. (Ṣ,* Ḳ.) [They became in the condition of persons whose food and milk, and the pasture of whose land, were abundant. (See the part. n., مُخْصِبٌ, below.)] And اخصبت الشَّاةُ The ewe, or she-goat, obtained abundance of herbage. (TA.)

verb form: 4.(dissociation - B1)

اخصب ٱللّٰهُ المَوْضِعِ God caused the place to produce herbs and pasture. (Mṣb.)

verb form: 4.(dissociation - C1)

اخصبت العِضَاهُ, mentioned as on the authority of Lth, [and in the Ḳ,] is, accord. to Az, a gross mistranscription, for اخصبت [q. v.]. (TA.)

(A, Mṣb.*) And أَرْضٌ خَصِبٌ andخَصِيبَةٌ↓, (AḤn, TA,) and أَرْضُونَ خِصْبٌ [because خِصْبٌ is originally an inf. n.] and خِصْبَةٌ andخَصْبَةٌ↓, which last word is either an inf. n. used as an epithet, or a contraction of خَصِبَةٌ↓, (Ḳ,) A land, and lands, abounding with herbage &c.

It is said that خَصْبٌ↓ signifies also The spadix of the palm-tree: so in the Ḳ: and accord. to Lth, خَصْبَةٌ signifies a single spadix of a palm-tree: but [it is probably a mistranscription for خَضْبَةٌ, with the pointed ض:] Az says that he who assigns to it this meaning errs. (TA.)
