خطر خطف خطل
خَطِفَهُ, aor. ـَ, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. خَطْفٌ; (Ṣ, TA;) this is the approved form of the verb; (T, Ṣ;) and خَطَفَهُ, aor. ـِ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. as above; (Mṣb;) a form of the verb mentioned by Akh, (Ṣ,) but this is rare, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) or (Ḳ) bad, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) scarcely, or not at all, known; (Ṣ;) andاختطفهُ↓, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, TA,) andتخطّفهُ↓; (Ṣ Mṣb, TA;) He seized it; or took it, or carried it off, by force: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) or he did so quickly; snatched it away: (Mgh, Mṣb, TA:) andخطّف↓ has been said to imply repetition of the action [unless it be a variation of اختطف as in a case mentioned below]; but this is strange, and not known on any other authority than that of the “Akáneem et-Taaleem” by El-Khuweiyee, a disciple of El-Fakhr Er-Rázee. (MF, TA.) Hence, in the Ḳur [xxix. 67],وَيُتَخَطَّفُ↓ النَّاسُ مِنْ حَوْلِهِمْ [And men are carried off by force from around them]. (TA.)
[And hence,] هٰذَا سَيْفٌ يَخْطَفُ الرَّأْسَ ‡ [This is a sword that will strike off the head]. (TA.)
And خَطِفَ البَصَرَ and خَطَفَهُ, said of lightning, (Ḳ,) and of a ray of light, and of a [glistening] sword, and of any polished body, (TA,) ‡ It took away the sight: (Ḳ, TA:) andاُخْتُطِفَ بَصَرُهُ↓ ‡ His sight was suddenly taken away. (M and Ḳ in art. ملس.) It is said in the Ḳur [ii. 19], يَكَادُ البَرْقُ يَخْطَفُ أَبْصَارَهُمْ ‡ [The lightning almost taketh away their sight, lit. sights]: (TA:) Yoo read يَخْطِفُ ابصارهم; (Ṣ, TA;) and so did Aboo-Rejà and Mujáhid: and some read↓يِخِطِّفُ, andيَخَطِّفُ↓, originally يَخْتَطِفُ, accord. to the opinion of the Basrees, disputed by Fr, but confirmed by Zj. (TA.)
And خَطِفَ السَّمْعَ, (Ḳ,) aor. ـَ, (Ṣ,) said of a devil, ‡ He stole [an opportunity of] hearing [the speech of the angels, from the confines of the lowest Heaven; or snatched it]; (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA;) as alsoاختطفهُ↓: (Ḳ:) the two verbs being like نَزَعَهُ and اِنْتَزَعَهُ. (Sb, TA.) Hence, in the Ḳur [xxxvii. 10],إِلَّا مَنْ خَطِفَ الخَطْفَةَ↓ ‡ Except him who steals the [opportunity of] hearing: (TA:) or who snatches unawares and by stealth, (Bḍ,) or hears and snatches, (Jel,) the speech of the angels: (Bḍ, Jel:) El-Ḥasan readالّا من خَطَّفَ↓ الخطفة, originally ٱخْتَطَفَ: (Ṣ, TA:) and another reading, ascribed to him and others, isخِطِّفَ↓; but this is very weak. (TA.)
خَطِفَ, aor. ـَ; and خَطَفَ, aor. ـِ; inf. n. خَطَفَانٌ; (Ḳ;) thus in all the copies of the Ḳ, but correctly خَطْفٌ, as in the L; (TA;) said of a camel, † He went along quickly. (Ḳ, TA.) And مَرَّ يَخْطَفُ خَطْفًا مُنْكَرًا † He went along at a quick rate [such as was deemed strange, or disapproved]. (TA.) And خَطِفَتِ السَّفِينَةُ, and خَطَفَت, † The ship sailed, or voyaged: you say, خَطِفَتِ اليَوْمَ مِنْ عُمَانَ † She sailed,. or voyaged, to-day, from 'Omán. (TA.)

أَخْطَفَتْهُ الحُمَّى, (Lḥ, O, TA,) or أَخْطَفَتْ عَنْهُ, (JK,) or

And He captured, or caught, the animal at which he shot or cast; expl. by إِذَا كَانَ يَصِيدُهَا [perhaps a mistranscription for يُصِيبُهَا, and, if so, meaning he hit]. (JK.) And اخطف said of an arrow, † [It missed: or it fell upon the ground, and then glided along upon the ground to the butt, or object of aim: (see خَاطِفٌ:) and] it went straight. (TA.)
اخطف said of a man, † He became affected with a slight sickness, and then speedily recovered. (TA.)
أِخْطَافُ الحَشَا i. q. اِنْطِوَآؤُهُ [meaning † The state of being lean, or lank, in the belly: see مُخْطَفٌ]. (Ṣ, TA.) الأِخْطَافُ in horses is a fault: it is † The contr. of الاِنْتِفَاخُ: AHeyth says that it is, in horses, † smallness of the جَوْف [here meaning the belly, or abdomen]. (TA.)

خَطْفَةٌ A single act of seizing; or, of taking, or carrying off, by force: (TA:) or, of doing so quickly; of snatching away. (Mgh, Mṣb, TA.) Hence, [in a trad.,] accord. to one reading, نَهَى عَنْ كُلِّ ذِى خَطْفَةٍ, meaning He prohibited the prey of whatever snatches away the prey, and goes away with it, not withholding it for its owner: or, as some say, what snatches away with its talon, or claw: but the reading commonly known is, نَهَى عَنِ الخَطْفَةِ: (Mgh:) and الخَطْفَةُ signifies what the wolf, (Mgh, Mṣb, TA,) or the like, (Mṣb,) snatches away, (Mgh, Mṣb, TA,) of the limbs, or members, of a living sheep or goat, (Mgh, TA,) or of a living animal; (Mṣb;) or what the dog snatches away from the limbs, or members, of the animal of the chase, of flesh &c., while the animal is alive: (Mgh, TA:) or the limb, or member, which the beast or bird of prey seizes, or carries off by force, or which a man cuts off, from the beast that is alive: (Ḳ, TA:) for whatever is separated from the living animal, (Mgh, TA,) of flesh or fat, (TA,) is carrion, (Mgh, TA,) unlawful to be eaten: the prohibition originated from the Prophet's finding, when he came to El-Medeeneh, that the people loved and ate the humps of camels and the tails of sheep: (TA:) the reading الخَطَفَة, of the measure فَعَلَة, with fet-ḥ to the medial radical letter, as pl. of خَاطِفٌ, is a mistake. (Mgh.)
