(Mṣb, TA.) The dim. [signifying Any small animal that walks or creeps or crawls upon the earth, a small beast, a small reptile or creeping thing, a creeping insect, and any insect, and also a mollusk, a shell-fish (as in an instance cited voce مَحَارَةٌ in art. حور) and the like,] is دُوَيْبَّةٌ, (Zj, T, Mṣb,) in which the ى is quiescent, but pronounced with إِشْمَام [i. e. a slight approximation to the sound of kesr], as it is in every similar case, in a dim. n., when followed by a doubled letter: (Zj, T:) and دُوَابَّةٌ also has been heard, with the ى changed into ا anomalously. (Mṣb; and L in art. هد, on the authority of ISd.)
دَابَّةُ الأَرْضِ [The Beast of the Earth] is an appellation of one of the signs of the time of the resurrection: (Ṣ, M, Ḳ:) or the first of those signs. (Ḳ.) It is said to be a beast sixty cubits in length, or height, with legs, and with fur (وَبَر), and to be diverse in form, resembling a number of different animals. (TA.) It will come forth in Tihámeh, or between Es-Safà and ElMarweh, (M,) or at Mekkeh, from Jebel Es- Safà, which will rend open for its egress, during one of the nights when people are going to Minè; or from the district of Et-Táïf; (Ḳ) or from three places, three several times. (M, Ḳ.) It will make, upon the face of the unbeliever, a black mark; and upon the face of the believer, a white mark: the unbeliever's mark will spread until his whole face becomes black; and the believer's, until his whole face becomes white: then they will assemble at the table, and the believer will be known from the unbeliever. (M.) It is also said that it will have with it the rod of Moses and the seal of Solomon: with the former it will strike the believer; and with the latter it will stamp the face of the unbeliever, impressing upon it “ This is an unbeliever. ” (Ḳ.)

Having down (Ḳ, TA) upon the face: (TA:) or having much hair: (M, Ḳ:) and having much وَبَر [or fur]: (M:) it is applied to a man: (M:) and to a camel, (M, Ḳ,) in the second of these senses, (Ḳ, TA,) or in the third sense, or as meaning having much fur upon the face; (TA;) or i. q. أَزَبُّ: (M:) and occurs in a trad. written أَدْبَب, (M, Ḳ,) to assimilate it in measure to a preceding word, namely, حَوْءَب: (M:) the fem. is دَبَّآءُ; with which دَبِبَةٌ is syn.; (M, Ḳ;) signifying a woman having hair upon her face: (TA:) or having much hair upon the جَبِين [or part above the temple].

The subst. is with kesr; and the inf. n., with fet-h; accord. to a rule constantly obtaining, (Ṣ, * Ḳ, * TA,) except in some anomalous instances, (TA,) when the verb is of the measure فَعَلَ (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA) or فَعِلَ, (TA,) and its aor. is of the measure يَفْعِلُ. (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA.) [Here it should be observed that مَجْرًى, given as the explanation of مَدِبٌّ and مَدَبٌّ in the Ḳ, is both an inf. n. and a n. of place and of time: but J clearly explains both these words as above; and F seems, in the Ḳ, to assign to them both the same signification.]
