خيف خيل خيم
1. (خيل ⇒ خال)
خَالَ is syn. with ظَنَّ and تَوَهَّمَ: (TA:) you say, خَالَ الشَّىْءَ, (Mṣb, Ḳ,) first pers. خِلْتُ, (JK, Ṣ,) aor. يَخَالُ, (Mṣb, Ḳ,) first pers. إِخَالُ and أَخَالُ, (JK, Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ, &c.,) the former irregular, (Mṣb,) but the more chaste of the two, (Ṣ,) and the more used, (Mṣb,) of the dial. of Teiyi, but commonly used by others also, (El-Marzookee, TA,) the latter of the dial. of Benoo-Asad, accord. to rule, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) but of weak authority, (Ḳ,) though some assert it to be the more chaste, (TA,) inf. n. خَيْلٌ (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ) and خَيْلَةٌ and خِيلٌ (Ḳ) and خِيلَةٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ) and خَالٌ and خَيَلَانٌ, (Ḳ, TA, [the last accord. to the CK خَيَلَالٌ,]) or, as in the T [and JK], خِيلَانٌ, (TA,) and خَيْلُولَةٌ and مَخِيلَةٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ) and مَخَالَةٌ; (Ḳ;) and خَالَ الشَّىْءَ, aor. يَخِيلُ, is a dial. var. thereof; (Mṣb;) meaning ظَنَّةُ [He thought, or opined, the thing: and sometimes (see I’Aḳ p. 109) he knew the thing: but it seems to have originally signified توهّم الشىءَ, i. e. he surmised, or fancied, the thing: see خَالٌ, below]. (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ.) This verb, being of the class of ظَنَّ, occurs with an inchoative and an enunciative; if commencing the phrase, governing them; but if in the middle or at the end, it may be made to govern or to have no government. (Ṣ.) You say, إِخَالُ زَيْدًا أَخَاكَ [and, if you will, زَيْدٌ إِخَالُ أَخُوكَ and زَيْدٌ أَخُوكَ إِخَالُ, I think Zeyd is thy brother and Zeyd I think is thy brother and Zeyd is thy brother I think]. (JK.) Hence the prov., مَنْ يَسْمَعْ يَخَلْ, (Ṣ, TA,) i. e. He who hears the things related of men and of their vices, or faults, will think evil of them: meaning that it is most safe to keep aloof from other men: or, accord. to some, it is said on the occasion of verifying an opinion. (TA.)
خال said of a horse, (JK, Ḳ, TA,) aor. يَخَالُ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. خَالٌ, (JK, Ḳ,) He limped, or halted, or was slightly lame. (JK, Ḳ.*)
تَخْيِيلٌ signifies The imaging a thing in the mind, or fancying it; the forming an image, or a fancied image, thereof in the mind: (TA:) [andتَخَيُّلٌ↓ has the same, as well as a quasipass., signification.] You say, [خَيَّلْتُهُ فَتَخَيَّلَ↓ لِى and] تَخَيَّلْتُهُ↓ فَتَخَيَّلَ↓ لِى [I imaged it in the mind, or fancied it, and it became imaged in the mind to me, or an object of fancy to me]; like as you say, [صَوَّرْتُهُ فَتَصَوَّرَ لِى and] تَصَوَّرْتُهُ فَتَصَوَّرَ لِى: (Ṣ:) forتَخَيُّلٌ↓ [as inf. n. of a quasi-pass. verb] signifies a thing's being imaged in the mind, or fancied: (Er-Rághib, TA:) andتخيّل↓ الشَّىْءُ لَهُ means تَشَبَّهَ. (Ḳ. [And the same is indicated in the Mṣb.]) You say also, خُيِّلَ لَهُ كَذَا [Such a thing was imaged to him in the mind; i. e. such a thing seemed to him]; from الوَهْمُ and الظَّنُّ: (Mṣb:) and خُيِّلَ إِلَيْهِ أَنَّهُ كَذَا (Ṣ) It was imaged to him [in the mind, i. e. it seemed to him,] that it was so; syn. شُبِّهَ; (PṢ;) from التَّخْيِيلُ and الوَهْمُ: (Ṣ, TA:) andتَخَيَّلَ↓ لَهُ أَنَّهُ كَذَا signifies [in like manner it became imaged &c.; i. e.] تَشَبَّهَ; as alsoتخايل↓: (Ṣ:) and so the first of these three verbs is used in the Ḳur xx. 69. (TA.) And فُلَانٌ يَمْضِى عَلَى مَا خَيَّلَتْ, (JK and Ṣ in explanation of the phraseفُلَانٌ يَمْضِى عَلَى المُخَيَّلِ↓,) i. e. شَبَّهَتْ [Such a one goes on, notwithstanding what (the mind, or the case,) may image to him, or what is fancied by him, of danger of difficulty; النَّفْسُ, or الحَالُ, accord. to Z, (see Freytag's Arab. Prov. ii. 94,) being understood]; meaning, notwithstanding peril, or risk; without any certain knowledge. (Ṣ.) Whence the prov.,
* عَلَىمَا خُيِّلَتْ وَعْثُ القَصِيمِ *
i. e. I will go on, notwithstanding what the soft tracts abounding in sand in which the feet sink may be imagined to be: [or the right reading is probably خَيَّلَتْ, i. e. notwithstanding what the soft tracts &c. may image to the mind, of danger or difficulty:] the ت in خيّلت relates to the word وعث, which is [regarded as] pl. of وَعْثَةٌ; and على is a connective of a suppressed verb, namely, أَمْضِى, with what follows it: the meaning is, I will assuredly venture upon the affair, notwithstanding its terribleness. (Meyd.) And اِفْعَلْ ذٰلِكَ عَلَى مَا خَيَّلَتْ, i. e. عَلَى مَا شَبَّهَتْ [Do thou that, notwithstanding what (the mind, or the case, as explained above,) may image to thee, of danger or difficulty]; (JK;) meaning, in any case. (TA.)
[Hence,] خيّل لِلنَّاقَةِ, andأَخْيَلَ↓, He put a خَيَال [q. v.] near the she-camel's young one, in order that the wolf might be scared away from him, (JK,* Ṣ, Ḳ,*) and not approach him. (JK, Ṣ.)
And خيّل فِيهِ الخَيْرَ He perceived, or discovered, in him an indication, or external sign, of good; as alsoتخيّلهُ↓ (Ḳ, TA) and تخوّلهُ: (TA: [see also 4 in art. خول:]) or you say,تَخَيَّلَتْ↓ عَلَيْهِ, (T, Ṣ, TA,) meaning I knew him; or knew his internal, or real, state; (تَخَبَّرْتُهُ, T, TA;) or I chose him; (اِخْتَرْتُهُ, Ṣ, TA;) and perceived, or discovered, in him an indication, or external sign, of good. (T, Ṣ, TA.)
And خيّل عَلَيْهِ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf.n. تَخْيِيلٌ (Mṣb, Ḳ) andتَخَيُّلٌ↓, (Ḳ,) [the latter anomalous, being properly inf. n. of تَخَيَّلَ,] He conveyed doubt, or suspicion, (التُّهْمَةَ, Ṣ, Ḳ, or الوَهْمَ, Mṣb,) to him; so in the M, on the authority of AZ; (TA;) i. q. لَبَّسَ عَلَيْهِ [he made (a thing, or case) dubious to him]. (Mṣb.)
And خيّلت عَلَيْنَا السَّمَآءُ The sky thundered and lightened [over us], and prepared to rain: but when the rain has fallen, the term تَخَيُّلٌ↓ [so in my two copies of the Ṣ, app. used as an inf. n. of the verb in this phrase, as in a case above, or perhaps a mistranscription for تَخْيِيلٌ, though it will be seen from what follows that خيّلت and تخيّلت are both said of the sky in the same sense,] is not used: (Ṣ:) or خيّلت السَّمَآءُ signifies the sky became clouded, but did not rain; (JK, and Ḥar p. 36;) as alsoاخالت↓ andتخيّلت↓ andخايلت↓: (Ḥar ibid.:) or, as alsoتخيّلت↓ (Mṣb, Ḳ) andاخالت↓, (Mṣb,) orأَخْيَلَت↓, (Ḳ,) the sky prepared to rain, (Mṣb, Ḳ, TA,) and thundered and lightened, but did not yet rain: (TA:) or, accord. to Az, اخالت↓ السَّمَآءُ signifies the sky became clouded: (Mṣb, TA:) andتخيّلت↓ السَّمَآءُ the sky became clouded, and prepared to rain. (Ṣ.) [In like manner,] one says also,اخالت↓ السَّحَابُ andأَخْيَلَت↓ andخايلت↓ The clouds gave hope of rain: (Ṣ:) orاخالت↓ السَّحَابَةُ the cloud showed signs of rain, so that it was thought [or expected] to rain. (Mṣb.)
خيّل also signifies, (JK, TA,) orتخيّل↓, (Ḥam p. 39,) [or each of these,] He (a man) was cowardly, or weak-hearted, on the occasion of fight, (JK, TA, and Ḥam,) and did not act, or proceed, firmly, or steadily. (Ḥam.) And خيّل عَنِ القَوْمِ andأَخْيَلَ↓, [but the former only is explained in this sense in the TA,] He held back from the people, or party, through cowardice: (Ḳ, TA:) so says Az, on the authority of' Arrám. (TA.)
خايلهُ, (JK, TA,) inf. n. مُخَايَلَةٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) He vied with him, rivalled him, or imitated him, (JK, Ṣ,* Ḳ,* TA,) in pride and self-conceit; (JK;) did as he did. (TA.)
خايلت السَّمَآءُ, and السَّحَابُ: see 2, in the latter part of the paragraph.
4. (اخيل ⇒ اخال)
اخال It (a thing) was, or became, dubious, or confused, or vague, (JK, Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, TA,) عَلَيْهِ to him. (JK, Mgh.) One says, هٰذَا أَمْرٌ لَا يُخِيلُ [This is a thing, or an affair, or a case, that will not be dubious, &c.]. (Ṣ.) And لَا يُخِيلُ ذَاكَ عَلَى أَحَدٍ That will not be dubious, &c., to any one. (JK.)
اخال الشَّىْءُ إِلَى الخَيْرِ, and المَكْرُوهِ, The thing exhibited an indication, or indications, of good, and of evil, or what was disliked or hated. (Mṣb.) [Hence,] اخالت السَّمَآءُ, and أَخْيَلَت: see 2, in the latter part of the paragraph, in four places. And اخالت السَّحَابُ and أَخْيَلَت, or اخالت السَّحَابَةُ: see, again, 2, in the latter part of the paragraph, in three places.
And hence, in the opinion of ISd, the she-camel in this case being likened to clouds [giving hope, or showing signs, of rain], (TA,) اخالت النَّاقَةُ ‡ The she-camel had milk in her udder, (JK, Ḳ, TA,) and was in good condition of body. (JK, TA.)
اخالت الأَرْضُ بِالنَّبَاتِ, (Ḳ,) or, as in the M, اختالت↓, (TA,) ‡ The land became adorned, or embellished, with plants, or herbage. (Ḳ, TA. [See also 5.])
أَخْيَلْنَا and أَخَلْنَا We watched, or observed, or looked at, a cloud which it was thought would rain, to see where it would rain. (Ḳ,* TA.) And أَخَلْتُ السَّحَابَةُ and أَخْيَلْتُهَا I saw the cloud to be such as gave hope of rain. (Ṣ. [See also 10.])

[Hence, app.,] تخيّلت الأَرْضُ † The land became abundant in its plants, or herbage: (JK:) [and, (as is shown by an explanation of the part. n. of the verb, below,) † the land had its plants, or herbage, in a state of full maturity, and in blossom; and soتخايلت↓; whence,] a poet says,
* تَأَزَّرَ فِيهِ النَّيْتُ حَتَّى تَخَايَلَتْ ** رُبَاهُ وَحَتَّى مَا تُرَى الشَّآءُ نُوَّمَا *
[The herbage in it became, or had become, tangled, or luxuriant, and strong, so that its hills were clad with plants in full maturity, and in blossom, and so that the sheep, or goats, were seen sleeping]. (Ṣ, TA. [In both, the meaning of the verb in this ex. is indicated by the context. See also 4, where a similar meaning is assigned to اخالت or اختالت.])
تَخَيُّلٌ also signifies The being, or becoming, of various colours. (JK, Ḥam p. 39.*) [Hence the saying,] تَخَيَّلَ الغَرْقُ بِالسَّفْرِ, i. e. [The desert, or far-extending desert] became of various colours with the travellers, by reason of the آل [or mirage]. (JK.)

So in the saying, أَصَابَ فِهِ خَالِى [My thought or opinion, or surmise or fancy, was right respecting him, or it]. (TḲ.)
مَخِيلَةٌ, q. v., (Ḳ,) [accord. to the TA, which is followed in this instance, as usual, by the author of the TḲ, as meaning فِرَاسَةٌ: but this is a mistake: for وهى الفراسة, the explanation in the TA, we should read وَهِىَ مِنَ الفِرَاسَةِ; as is shown by its being there immediately added that one says, أخَالَ↓ فِيهِ خَالًا, explained in art. خول; (see 4, and خَالٌ, in that art.; and see also مَخِيلَةٌ in the present art.;) and by what here follows:] الخَالٌ is syn. with المَخِيلَةٌ and الشِّيَةُ.

[In philosophy it signifies] A faculty that retains what the fancy perceives of the forms of objects of sense after the substance has become absent, so that the fancy beholds them whenever it turns towards them: thus it is the store-house of the fancy: its place is the hinder part of the first venter of [the three which are comprised by] the brain.
