دَبَرَهُ, aor. ـُ and ـِ, inf. n. دُبُورٌ, He followed behind his back; he followed his back; (M, TA;) he followed him, with respect to place, and also with respect to time, and also † with respect to rank or station. (TA.) You say, جَآءَ يَدْبُرُهُمْ He came following them. (M, TA.) And دَبَرَنِى فُلَانٌ Such a one came after me, behind me, (T, A,) or following me nearly. (A.) And دَبَرَهُ, inf. n. دَبْرٌ, He succeeded him, and remained after him. (TA.) And قَبَحَ ٱللّٰهُ مَا قَبَلَ مِنْهُ وَمَا دَبَرَ [May God curse the beginning of it and the end]. (Ṣ, A.)
See also 4, in four places.
دَبَرَ said of an arrow, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) or دَبَرَ الهَدَفَ, (M, A,) aor. ـُ, (Ṣ, M, Mṣb,) inf. n. دُبُورٌ (Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ) and دَبْرٌ, (M, Ḳ,) It passed forth from the butt: (Ṣ, Mṣb:) or passed beyond the butt, (M, A, Ḳ,) and fell behind it. (M, A.)
دَبَرَ بِهِ He, or it, went away with it; took it away; carried it off; or caused it to go away, pass away, or cease. (Ṣ, Ḳ.)
دَبَرَ القَوْمُ, aor. ـُ, (M, TA,) inf. n. دَبَارٌ, (Aṣ, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) like دَمَارٌ, (Aṣ, Ṣ,) [and دَبَارَةٌ, like دَمَارَةٌ (q. v.), and app.دَبَرَى↓, (see الخَيْبَرَى,) or دَبرَى may be a simple subst.,] The people, or company of men, perished; (Aṣ,* Ṣ,* M, Ḳ * TA;) went away, turning the back, and did not return. (TA. [And ادبر (q. v.) has a similar, or the same, meaning.]) Hence, عَلَيْهِ الدَّبَارُ Perdition befall him; may he go away, turning the back, and not return. (M, TA.)
And دَبَرَ ‡ He became an old man. (Ṣ, A, Ḳ.) Hence, as some say, the expression in the Ḳur [lxxiv. 36], وَٱللَّيْلُ إِذَا دَبَرَ ‡ [And the night when it groweth old]. (TA. [See also 4.])
دَبَرَتِ الرِّيحُ, (Ṣ, M, A, Ḳ,) aor. ـُ, inf. n. دُبُورٌ, (M,) The wind blew in the direction of that wind which is termed دَبُور [i. e. west, &c., which is regarded as the hinder quarter]: (M, A:) or changed, and came in that direction. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) [Hence,] دَبَرَتْ لَهُ الرِّيحُ بَعْدَ مَا أَقْبَلَتْ [lit. The wind became west to him after it had been east: meaning ‡ his fortune became evil after it had been good]: and دَبَرَ بَعْدَ إِقْبَالٍ [‡ which means the same: see دَبُورٌ; and see also 4 in this art., and 4 in art. قبل]. (A.)
And دُبِرَ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) a verb of which the agent is not named, (Ṣ,) He, (Ḳ,) a man, (TA,) or it, a people, (Ṣ, M,) was smitten, or affected, by the wind called الدَّبُور. (Ṣ, M, Ḳ.)
دَبَرَ الحَدِيثَ عَنْهُ: see 2.
قَبَلْتُ الحَبْلَ وَدَبَرْتُهُ: see دَبِيرٌ.
دَبَرَ, aor. ـُ, inf. n. دَبْرٌ, signifies, accord. to Kr, He wrote a writing or letter or book: but none other says so; and the known word is ذَبَرَ. (M.) [The inf. n. is explained in the Ḳ as syn. with اِكْتِتَابٌ.]
دَبِرَ, (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Ḳ,) aor. ـَ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. دَبَرٌ, (M, Mgh,) He (a horse or the like, M, Ḳ, and a camel, Ṣ, M, Mgh) had galls, or sores, on his back, (M, Mgh, Ḳ,* TA,) produced by the saddle and the like; (Mgh;) as alsoادبر↓. (Ḳ. [But the corresponding passage in the M shows that this is probably a mistake for أَدْبَرُ a syn. of دَبِرٌ.])
دبّر الأَمْرَ, (T, M, A,) or فِى الأَمْرِ (Ṣ,) inf. n. تَدْبِيرٌ, (T, Ṣ, Ḳ,) He considered, or forecast, the issues, or results, of the affair, or event, or case; (TA;) and soتدبّرهُ↓: (Mgh:) or its end, issue, or result; (T, M, Ḳ;) as alsoتدبّرهُ↓: (T, M, Mṣb, Ḳ:) or he looked to what would, or might, be its result: andتدبّر↓ فِيهِ he thought, or meditated, upon it; (Ṣ;) [as alsoتدبّرهُ↓:] Aktham Ibn-Seyfee said to his sons,يَابَنِىَّ لَا تَتَدَبَّرُوا↓ أَعْجَازَ أُمُورٍ قَدْ وَلَّتْ صُدُورُهَا [O my sons, think not upon the ends of things whereof the beginnings have passed]: (T: [see عَجُزٌ:]) and in the Ḳur [iv. 84] it is said,أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ↓ القُرْآنَ Will they, then, not consider the meanings of the Ḳur-án, and endeavour to obtain a clear knowledge of what is in it? (Bḍ:) and again, in the Ḳur [xxiii. 70],أَفَلَمْ يَدَّبَّرُوا↓ القَوْلَ Have they, then, not thought upon, (TA,) and endeavoured to understand, (يَتَفَهَّمُوا, Ḳ,) what has been said to them in the Ḳur-án? forتَدَبُّرٌ↓ signifies the thinking, or meditating, upon [a thing], and endeavouring to understand [it]; syn. تَفَكُّرٌ and تَفَهُّمٌ: (TA:) andتدبّرهُ↓ he looked into it, considered it, examined it, or studied it, repeatedly, in order to know it, or until he knew it. (Mṣb in art. امل.) دبّر أَمْرًا, inf. n. as above, signifies [also] He did, performed, or executed, a thing, or an affair, with thought, or consideration. (Mṣb.) [And He devised, planned, or plotted, a thing, عَلَى غَيْرِهِ against another. And hence, He managed, conducted, ordered, or regulated, an affair; because the doing so requires consideration of the issues, or results, of the affair. You say, دبّر أُمُورَ البِلَادِ, and, elliptically, دبّر البِلَادَ, He managed, conducted, ordered, or regulated, the affairs of the provinces, or country: and in like manner, the affairs of a house. تَدْبِيرٌ is also attributed to irrational animals; as, for ex., to horses; meaning their conducting the affair of victory: and to inanimate things; as, for ex., to stars; meaning their regulating the alternations of seasons &c.: see Bḍ in lxxix. 5. And دبّر alone signifies He acted with consideration of the issues, or results, of affairs, or events, or cases; acted with, or exercised, forecast, or forethought; or acted with policy.]
دبّر عَبْدَهُ, (M, Mṣb,) inf. n. as above, (T, Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) He made his slave to be free after his own death, (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,) saying to him, Thou art free after my death: (T, TA:) he made the emancipation of his slave to depend upon his own death. (TA.)
دبّر الحَدِيثَ, (inf. n. as above, Ḳ,) He related the tradition, narrative, or story, having received it, or heard it, from another person: (Aṣ, T, Ṣ, Ḳ:*) and هُوَ يُدَبِّرُ حَدِيثَ فُلَانٍ He relates the tradition, &c., of, or received from, or heard from, such a one: (Aṣ, Ṣ:) and دبّر الحَدِيثَ عَنْهُ; (M;) orدَبَرَهُ↓ عَنْهُ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) aor. ـُ; (TA;) He related the tradition, &c., having received it, or heard it, from him, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) after his death: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) Sh says that دبّر الحَدِيثَ is unknown; but so the phrase is related on the authority of AʼObeyd: Aḥmad Ibn-Yaḥyà [i. e. Th] disallows يُدَبِّرُهُ as meaning he relates it; and says that it is يَذْبُرُهُ, with ذ, meaning “he knows it, or learns it, well, soundly, or thoroughly;” syn. يُتْقِنُهُ. (T.)
دابرهُ, (Ṣ, A,*) inf. n. مُدَابَرَةٌ and دِبَارٌ, (Ḳ,) [He turned his back upon him: see 6.]
[And hence,] † He severed himself from him, and avoided him, or shunned him; (TA;) became at variance with him; (A;) regarded him, or treated him, with enmity, or hostility. (Ṣ, A, Ḳ.) And دابر رَحِمَهُ † He cut, or severed, the ties, or bonds, of his relationship; disunited himself from his relations. (A.)
دَابَرْتُهَا I made a slit such as is termed إِدْبَارَة in her (a ewe's or goat's or camel's) ear. (Aṣ, Ṣ, Ḳ.)
ادبر, (M, Ḳ, and Bḍ in ix. 25,) inf. n. إِدْبَارٌ (Ṣ, M) andدُبْرٌ↓, accord. to Kr, but correctly the latter is a simple subst. [or quasi-inf. n.]; (M;) andدَبَرَ↓, (IAạr, Ṣ, Ḳ,) inf. n. دَبْرٌ (TA) and دُبُورٌ; (TḲ;) He went, turning his back; turned back; went back; took a backward course; retreated; retired; retrograded; declined; syn. وَلَّىِ (Ṣ, M, Ḳ) and تَأَخَّرَ (IAạr) and ذَهَبَ إِلَى خَلْفٍ; (Bḍ ubi suprà, and Ṣ and Ḳ in art. قبل;) contr. of أَقْبَلَ. (Ṣ, Bḍ.) And ادبر بِهِ [He went back, or backward, with it, or him; removed, or turned, it, or him, backward]. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) You say, يُدْبِرُ بِالدَّلْوِ إِلَى الحَوْضِ [He goes back with the bucket to the watering-trough]: opposed to the phrase يُقْبِلُ بِهَا إِلَى بِئْرِ. (A.) See also دَبِيرٌ, first sentence. And ادبر عَنْهُ [He went back, &c., from it, or him]. (Mṣb.)
[Hence,] † He feigned himself negligent of, or inattentive to, the want of his friend; (Ḳ;) as though he turned back from him. (TA.)
[Hence also,] ادبر signifies † It went backward, to a bad state; said of the affair, or case, of a people. (M, TA.) You say also, أَمْرٌ فُلَانٍ إِلَى إِقْبَالٍ and [in the contr. sense] الى إِدْبَارٌ † [The affair, or case, of such a one is inclining to advance, and to go backward, to a bad state]. (A.) [إِدْبَارٌ often signifies The retiring, or declining, of good fortune; opposed to إِقْبَالٌ: see also 1, in the latter part of the paragraph.] And ادبر القَوْمُ † The case of the people took a backward course, and there remained none of them. (TA.) And ادبر النَّهَارِ andدَبَرَ↓ (inf. n. of the latter دُبُورٌ, A) signify the same; (Fr, T, Ṣ, M;) i. e. The day went, or departed; (M, A;) and so الصَّيْفُ [the summer, or the spring]: and in like manner one says [in the contr. sense] أَقْبَلَ and قَبَلَ: so says Fr, and he adds, but you say of a man, اقبل الرَّاكِبُ and ادبر only, with ا, though [Az says] it seems to me that the two forms are applicable in the same manner to men as they are to times. (T.) Some read, in the Ḳur [lxxiv. 36], وَٱللَّيْلِ إِذَا دَبَرَ↓, (T, Ṣ,) which, accord. to some, means And the night when it cometh after the day; (T;) or when it followeth the day: (Ṣ: [for another rendering, see 1:]) others, (T, Ṣ,) the greater number, (T,) read اذا أَدْبَرَ, (T, Ṣ,) meaning when it retreateth to depart. (T.) [Hence,] ادبرت الصَّلَاةُ † The prayer ended. (Bḍ in l. 39.) And وَإِدْبَارَ السُّجُودِ: and وَإِدْبَارَ النُّجُومِ: see دُبُرٌ. And ادبر † He died; (Ḳ;) as alsoدابر↓. (Lḥ, M, Ḳ. [See also دَبَرَ القَوْمُ, in the first paragraph.])
مَا أَقْبَلَ مِنَ الجَبَلِ وَمَا أَدْبَرَ andمَا قَبَلَ مِنْهُ وَمَا دَبَرَ↓ signify the same [i. e. What is in front, of the mountain; and what is behind]. (JK.)
ادبر also signifies He made a man to be behind him. (M.)
And It, (the saddle, Ṣ, Ḳ, or a burden, M, TA,) and he, (a man, Ṣ, Mgh,) caused a camel, (Ṣ, M, Mgh,) or a horse or the like, (Ḳ,) to have galls, or sores, on the back; galled the back. (M, Mgh, Ḳ.*)
And His camel became galled in the back. (Ṣ, Ḳ.)
See also 1, last signification.
It is also said [app., of a man, as meaning He slit the ear of a she-camel in a particular manner, i. e.,] when (T) the فَتْلَة [or twisted slip formed by slitting (see إِدْبَارَةٌ)] of the ear of a she-camel, (T, Ḳ,) it being slit, (T, [but for اذا نحرت in the TT and TA, from which this is taken, I read إِذَا بُحِرَتْ, an emendation evidently required,]) turns towards the back of the neck: (IAạr, T, TT, Ḳ,* TA:) and أَقْبَلَ is said in like manner when this فتلة is turned towards the face. (IAạr, T, TT, TA. [See also 3.])
It signifies also عَرَفَ دَبِيرَهُ مِنْ قَبِيلِهِ, (IAạr,) or عَرَفَ قَبِيلَهُ مِنْ دَبِيرِهِ; (Ḳ;) said of a man. (IAạr. [See دَبِيرٌ.])
Also He, (Ḳ,) a man, (TA,) or it, a company of men, (Ṣ, M,) entered upon [a time in which blew] the wind called الدَّبُور. (Ṣ, M, Ḳ.)
And He journeyed on the day called دُبَار, i. e. Wednesday. (Ḳ, TA.)
And He became possessed of much property or wealth, or of many camels or the like. (Mṣb,* Ḳ.)
see 2, in nine places.
عَرَفَ الأَمْرَ تَدَبُّرًا means He knew the thing at the last, (M, Mgh,) after it had past. (Mgh.) Jereer says, (M,)
* وَلَا تَتَّقُونَ الشَّرَّ حَتَّىيُصِيبَكُمْ ** وَلَا تَعْرِفُونَ الأَمْرَ إِلَّا تَدَبُّرَا *
[And ye fear not evil until it befalleth you, and ye know not the thing save at the last, when it has past]. (M, Mgh.*) [See also 10.] And in like manner, تَدَبَّرَ الكَلَامَ [meaning He postponed the saying] is said of one who has sworn after doing a thing. (Mgh.)
تدابروا They turned their backs, one upon another. (AʼObeyd, T.)
And hence, (AʼObeyd, T,) † They severed themselves, one from another, (AʼObeyd, T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) and avoided, or shunned, one another; (AʼObeyd, T;) became at variance, one with another; (A;) regarded, or treated, one another with enmity, or hostility: (M, A:) or it is only said of the sons of one father, or ancestor. (M.)
† They spoke [evil], one of another, behind the other's back. (TA.)
† They abstained from, or neglected, aiding, or assisting, one another. (TA in art. خذل.)
استدبرهُ contr. of استقبلهُ. (Ṣ,* Mṣb, Ḳ.*) [As such it signifies He turned his back towards him, or it.] You say, استدبر القِبْلَةَ He turned his back towards the kibleh. (MA.)
[As such also,] He came behind him. (TA.) You say, استدبرهُ فَرَمَاهُ (A, TA) He came behind him and cast, or shot, at him. (TA.)
[As such also, He saw it behind him: he looked back to it: he saw it, or knew it, afterwards:] he saw, (M, Ḳ,) or knew, (TA,) at the end of it, namely, an affair, or a case, what he did not see, (M, Ḳ,) or know, (TA,) at the beginning of it: (M, Ḳ:) [or rather] he knew it at the end of an affair, or a case; namely, a thing that he did not know at the beginning of it. (T, A.) You say, اِسْتَدْبَرَ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ مَالَمْ يَسْتَقْبِلْ He knew at the end of his affair, or case, what he did not know at the beginning of it. (A.) And إِنَّ فُلَانًا لَوِ ٱسْتَقْبَلَ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ مَا ٱسْتَدْبَرَهُ لَهُدِىَ لِوِجْهَةِ أَمْرِهِ Verily such a one, had he known at the beginning of his affair, or case, what he knew at the end thereof, had been directed to the right way of executing his affair. (T.) [See also 5.]
استدبرهُ عَلَى غَيْرِهِ He appropriated it to himself exclusively, in preference to others: (AO, Ḳ:) because he who does so turns his back upon others, and retires from them. (TA.) El-Aạshà says, describing wine,
* تَمَزَّرْتُهَاغَيْرَ مُسْتَدْبِرٍ ** عَلَى الشَّرْبِ أَوْ مُنْكِرٍ مَا عُلِمْ *
i. e. [I sipped it] not appropriating [it] to myself exclusively [in preference to the other drinkers, nor denying what was known]. (AO, TA.)
دَبْرٌ The location, or quarter, that is behind a thing. (Ḳ. [In the CK, for خَلْف is put خَلَف.]) Hence the saying, (TA,) جَعَلْتُ كَلَامَهُ دَبْرَ أُذُنِى † I turned away from his speech, and feigned myself deaf to it: (T, Ṣ:) I did not listen to his speech, nor care for it, or regard it. (M, Ḳ,* TA.) You say also,جَعَلَهُ دَابِرَ↓ أُذُنِهِ ‡ He turned away from him, avoided him, or shunned him. (T,* A.)
Also, [like إِدْبَارٌ, inf. n. of 4,] † Death. (Ḳ.)
And † Constant sleep: (M, Ḳ:) it is like تَسْبِيخٌ. (M.)
I. q. دِبَارٌ↓; these two words being pls. [or rather coll. gen. ns.] whereof the sings. [or ns. un.] are دَبْرَةٌ↓ andدِبَارَةٌ↓; which signify A مَشَارَة [explained in the TA as meaning a channel of water; but it seems to be here used as meaning a portion of ground separated from the adjacent parts, for sowing or planting, being surrounded by dams, or by ridges of earth, which retain the water for irrigation, as explained in art. شور and as is indicated by its Persian equivalent here following,] in, (Ṣ,) or of, (Ḳ,) land that is sown or for sowing; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) called in Persian كُرْد: (Ṣ:) and دِبَارٌ signifies small channels for irrigation between tracts of seedproduce; (Ḳ;) and its sing. is دَبْرَةٌ: (TA:) [Mṭr says,] دَبْرَةٌ is syn. with مَشَارَةٌ; in Persian كَرْدَه [app. a mistranscription for كُرْد as above]; and the pl. is دَبْرٌ and دِبَارٌ: (Mgh:) [ISd says,] دَبْرَةٌ signifies a small channel for irrigation between tracts of land sown or for sowing: or, as some say, i. q. مَشَارَةٌ: and the pl. is دِبَارٌ: it is also said that دِبَارٌ signifies i. q. كُرْدَةٌ; and its n. un. is دِبَارَةٌ: and دِبَارَاتٌ signifies rivulets that flow through land of seed-produce; and its sing. is دَبْرَةٌ: but I know not how this is, unless دَبْرَةٌ have دِبَارٌ for its pl., and this have ة added to it, as in فِحَالَةٌ, and so دبارات be a pl. pl., i. e. perfect pl. of دِبَارَةٌ: AḤn says that دَبْرَةٌ signifies a patch of ground that is sown; [as is also said in the Ḳ;] and the pl. is دِبَارٌ. (M.)
Also A piece of rugged ground in a بَحْرٌ [i. e. sea or large river], like an island, which the water overflows [at times] and from which [at times] it recedes. (M, Ḳ.)
And A mountain; (T, Ḳ;) in the Abyssinian language: (TA: [Az says, “I know not whether it be Arabic or not:”]) whence the saying of the King of Abyssinia, (T,* Ḳ,* TA,) مَا أُحِبُّ أَنَّ لِى دَبْرًا ذَهَبًا وَأَنِّىآذَيْتُ رَجُلًا مِنَ المُسْلِمِينَ [I would not that I had a mountain of gold and that I had harmed a man of the Muslims]: (T, Ḳ:) but [SM says that] this is a confounding of two readings; which are, دَبْرًا مِنْ ذَهَبٍ and أَنْ يَكُونَ دَبْرٌ لِى ذَهَبًا: (TA:) another reading is ذَبْرًا مِنْ ذَهَبٍ. (TA in art. ذبر.)
Also, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ, &c.,) andدِبْرٌ↓, (AḤn, M, Ḳ,) A swarm of bees: and hornets, or large wasps; syn. زَنَابِيرُ: (Ṣ, M, Ḳ:) and the like thereof, having stings in their hinder parts: (B:) it has no sing., or n. un.: (Aṣ, M:) or the n. un. is دَبْرَةٌ↓ orدِبْرَةٌ↓; of which the dim. دُبَيْرَةٌ↓ occurs in a trad.: (TA:)pl. [of pauc.] أَدْبُرٌ (Ḳ) and [of mult.] دُبُورٌ: (Aṣ, Ṣ, Ḳ:) andدَبُورٌ↓, with fet-ḥ to the first letter, signifies bees; and has no proper sing. (M.) 'Ásim Ibn-Thábit El-Anṣáree was called حَمِىُّ الدَّبْرِ [The protected of hornets, or bees], because his corpse was protected from his enemies by large hornets, (Ṣ,) or by a swarm of bees. (M, Mgh * in art. حمى.)
دَبْرٌ also signifies The young ones of locusts; (AḤn, Ḳ;) and soدِبْرٌ↓. (AḤn, M, Ḳ.)
دُبْرٌ: see دُبُرٌ: and دَبَرِىٌّ; the latter in two places.
See also 4, first sentence.
دِبْرٌ: see دَبْرٌ, last sentence but two, and last sentence.
Also, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) andدَبْرٌ↓, (M, Ḳ,) Much property or wealth; or many camels or the like; (Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) such as cannot be computed, or calculated: (M:) the sing. [and dual] and pl. are alike: you say [using it as an epithet] مَالٌ دِبْرٌ and مَالَانِ دِبْرٌ and أَمْوَالٌ دِبْرٌ: (Ṣ, M:) this mode of usage is best known; but sometimes دُبُورٌ is used as its pl.: (M:) in like manner you say مَالٌ دَثْرٌ: and you say also رَجُلٌ ذُو دِبْرٍ, (Ṣ, TA,) and رجل دبر, [unless this be a mistake for the phrase immediately preceding,] (Fr, TA,) meaning a man having large possessions in land or houses or other property. (Fr, Ṣ, TA.)
دَبَرٌ [app. signifies A tract of the western sky at sunset: for] the Arabs said, إِذَا رَأَيْتَ الثُّرَيَّا بِدَبَرْ فَشَهْرٌ نِتَاجْ وَشَهْرٌ مَطَرْ وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ الشِّعْرَى بِقَبَلْ فَمَجْدُ فَتًى وَحِمْلُ جَمَلْ, meaning When thou seest the Pleiades near to setting with sunset, then [is a month which] is a time of breeding of camels, and [a month which is] a time of rain: and when thou seest Sirius [near to rising] with sunset, [then is the glory of the generous man, and the time for the burden of the full-grown hecamel; for] then is the most intense degree of cold, when none but the generous and noble and ingenuous man will patiently persevere in the exercise of hospitality and beneficence, and when the heavy burden is not laid save upon the strong full-grown he-camel, because then the camels become lean and the pasturage is scanty. (M.)
Also, and so is أَدْبَارٌ, a pl. [or rather the former is a coll. gen. n.] of دَبَرَةٌ↓, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) which signifies A gall, or sore, on the back (M,* Mgh, Ḳ,* TA) of a horse or the like (M, Ḳ, TA) and of a camel, (M, Mgh,) produced by the saddle and the like; (Mgh;) and also on the كِرْكِرَة [or callous projection on the breast] of a camel. (Ṣ and Ḳ in art. سر.) They used to say, in the Time of Ignorance, إِذَا بَرَأَ الدَّبَرُ وَعَفَا الأَثَرُ, explained as meaning [When] the galls on the back of the beast or upon the foot of the camel [shall heal, and the footstep, or mark, become obliterated]. (TA from a trad.)
Also inf. n. of دَبِرَ. (M, Mgh.)
دَبِرٌ (M, Ḳ) andأَدْبَرُ↓ (M) A horse or the like, (M, Ḳ,) and a camel, (M,) having galls, or sores, (M, Ḳ,) on his back (TA) [produced by the saddle and the like; having his back galled: see دَبَرٌ]: fem. [of the former] دَبِرَةٌ and [of the latter] دَبْرَآءُ↓: and pl. [of either] دَبْرَى. (M, TA.) [Hence the prov.,] هَانَ عَلَى الأَمْلَسِ مَا لَاقَى الدَّبِرُ [What he that had galls on his back experienced was a light matter to him that had a sound back]: applied to one who has an ill concern for his companion. (Ḳ.)
In the phrase رَجُلٌ خَسِرٌ وَدَبِرٌ [app. meaning A man erring and perishing], Lh says that دَبِرٌ is an imitative sequent to خَسِرٌ: but [ISd says,] I think that خَسِرٌ is a verbal epithet, and that دَبِرٌ is a possessive epithet. (M in art. دمر.) You say alsoأَحْمَقٌ خَاسِرٌ دَابِرٌ↓ دَامِرٌ: (T in art. بت: [see art. خسر:]) and دَابِرٌ is said to be an imitative sequent to خَاسِرٌ. (TA.)
دُبُرٌ andدُبْرٌ↓, (the latter a contraction of the former, Mṣb, [and not so commonly used, like as إِبْلٌ is not so commonly used as إِبِلٌ,]) The back; syn. ظَهْرٌ: (Ṣ, A, B, Ḳ;) the first signification given in the [Ṣ and] A and B: pl. أَدْبَارٌ. (TA.) You say, وَلَّى دُبُرَهُ [lit., He turned his back; and tropically,] ‡ he was put to flight. (A.) And وَلَّاهُ دُبُرَهُ [lit., He turned his back to him; and tropically,] the same as the phrase immediately preceding. (Mgh, Mṣb.) It is said in the Ḳur [liv. 45], وَيُوَلُّونَ الدُّبُرَ [And they shall turn the back, in flight]: where الدبر is used in a collective sense, agreeably with another passage in the Ḳur [xiv. 44], لَا يَرْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِمْ طَرْفُهُمْ. (Ṣ, B.) You also say,وَلَّوْا دَبْرَةً↓ ‡ They turned back in flight, or being routed. (A, TA.)
The back, or hinder part, contr. of قُبُلٌ, (Ṣ, A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) of anything: (Mṣb:) as, for instance, of a shirt. (Ḳur xii. 25, 27, and 28.) You say, وَقَعَ السَّهْمُ بِدُبْرِ الهَدَفِ The arrow fell behind the butt. (TA in art. قبل.)
The backside; posteriors; buttocks; rump; or podex: and the anus: syn. اِسْتٌ. (Ḳ.) [It has the former of these two significations in many instances; and the latter of them in many other instances: in the Ṣ and Ḳ in art. جعر, it is given as a syn. of مَجْعَرٌ, which has the latter signification in the present day. This latter signification may also be intended in the Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb, and Ḳ, by the explanation “contr. of قُبُلٌ,” as well as the “back, or hinder part,” of anything: for قُبُلٌ very often signifies the “anterior pudendum” of a man or woman, and is so explained. The anus is also called حَلْقَةُ الدُّبُرِ and حِتَارُ الدُّبُرِ and شَرَجُ الدُّبُرِ.] Its pl. أَدْبَارٌ is also applied to the part which comprises the اِسْت [or anus] and the حَيَآء [or vulva, i. e., external portion of the female organs of generation,] of a solid-hoofed animal, and of a cloven-hoofed animal, and of that which has claws, or talons: or, as some say, of a camel, or an animal having feet like those of the camel: and the sing., to the حَيَآء [or vulva] alone, of any such animal. (M, TT.)
† The latter, or last, part, (T, Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ,) of a thing, an affair, or an event, (T, Ṣ, Mṣb,) or of anything: (M, Ḳ:) pl. أَدْبَارٌ (M) [and دِبَارٌ: see دَبَرِىٌّ]. [See also دَابِرٌ.] One says, جِئْتُكَ دُبُرِ الشَّهْرِ, and فِى دُبُرِهِ, and عَلَى دُبُرِهِ, and أَدْبَارَ الشَّهْرِ, and فِى أَدْبَارِهِ, ‡ I came to thee in the latter, or last, part or parts, of the month. (M, Ḳ.) And أَدْعُو لَكَ فِى أَدْبَارِ الصَّلَوَاتِ † [I will petition for thee in the latter, or last, parts, or the conclusions, of the prayers]. (A.) See also دَبَرِىٌّ. In the Ḳur [I. xxxix.], وَأَدْبَارَ السُّجُودِ signifies † And in the latter parts, or the ends, of the prayers: andوَإِدْبَارَ↓ السُّجُودِ [virtually] signifies the same [i. e. and in the ending of prostration], and is another reading of the text: Ks and Th adopt the former reading, because every single prostration has its latter part: or, accord. to the T, the meaning is, and in the two rek'ahs (الرَّكْعَتَانِ) after sunset; as is related on the authority of ʼAlee the son of Aboo-Tálib. (TA.) The similar expression in the Ḳur [lii. last verse] وَأَدْبَارَ النُّجُومِ is explained by the lexicologists as signifying † And during the consecution of the stars, and their taking towards the west, to set: but [ISd says,] I know not how this is, since أَخْذٌ, by which they explain it, is an inf. n., and أَدْبَار is a pl. of a subst.: وَإِدْبَارَ↓ النُّجُومِ, which is another reading of the text, signifies and during the setting of the stars: and Ks and Th adopt this latter reading: (M:) or, accord. to the T, both mean and in the two rek'ahs before daybreak. (TA.)
Also The hinder part, (M,) and angle, (زَاوِيَة,) of a house or chamber or tent. (M, Ḳ.)
عِتْقَ العَبْدِ عَنْ دُبُرٍ (Ṣ, Ḳ) means The emancipation of the slave after the death of his owner. (Ṣ, Mgh,* Mṣb.* [See 2.])
[See also دَبِيرٌ, of which, and of دِبَارٌ, دُبُرٌ is said in the TA in art. قبل to be a pl.].
دَبْرَةٌ: see دُبُرٌ.
Also † A turn of evil fortune; an unfavourable turn of fortune: or a turn to be vanquished; contr. of دَوْلَةٌ: (Aṣ, M, Ḳ:) دَوْلَةٌ relates to good; and دَبْرَةٌ, to evil: one says, جَعَلَ ٱللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ الدَّبْرَةَ † [May God make the turn of evil fortune to be against him]: (Aṣ, T, M:) this [says ISd] is the best explanation that I have seen of دَبْرَةٌ: (M:) or (so accord. to the M, but in the Ḳ “and”) it signifies † the issue, or result, of a thing or an affair or a case; (M, Ḳ;) as in the saying of Aboo-Jahl to Ibn-Mesʼood, when he [the former] lay prostrate, wounded, لِمَنِ الدَّبْرَةُ † In whose favour is the issue, or result? and was answered, “In favour of God and his apostle, O enemy of God:” (T, TA:) also ‡ defeat in fight; (Ṣ, A, Mgh, Ḳ;) a subst. from الإِدْبَارُ, as alsoدَبَرَةٌ↓, (Ṣ,) andدَابِرَةٌ↓: (IAạr, A, Ḳ:) you say, كَانَتِ الدَّبْرَةُ لَهُ, meaning ‡ His adversary was defeated; and عَلَيْهِ meaning ‡ He was himself defeated: (A:) and لِمَنِ الدَّبْرَةُ, meaning † Who is the defeater? and عَلَىمَنِ الدَّبْرَةُ † Who is the defeated? the pl. of دَبْرَةٌ in the last sense is دِبَارٌ: (TA:) which also signifies conflicts and defeats; (Ḳ;) as in the saying, أَوْقَعَ ٱللّٰهُ بِهِمُ الدِّبَارَ God caused, or may God cause, to befall them conflicts and defeats. (TA.)
See also دَبْرٌ, in two places.
دِبْرَةٌ The direction, or point, towards which one turns his back; contr. of قِبْلَةٌ. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) One says, مَا لَهُ قِبْلَةٌ وَلَا دِبْرَةٌ, meaning ‡ He has no way of applying himself rightly to his affair. (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA.) And لَيْسَ لِهٰذَا الأَمْرِ قِبْلَةٌ وَلَا دِبْرَةٌ ‡ The right way of executing this affair is not known. (Ṣ, A.)

دَبَرَى: see 1.
دَبْرِىٌّ: see the next paragraph, in two places.
دَبَرِىٌّ [Backward: and hence, ‡ late]. You say, العِلْمُ قَبَلِىٌّوَلَيْسَ بِالدَّبَرِىِّ † [True learning is prompt, and is not backward]: i. e., the man of sound learning answers thee quickly; but the backward says, I must consider it. (Th, T.) And تَبِعْتُ صَاحِبِى دَبَرِيًّا † I followed my companion, fearing that he would escape me, after having been with him, and having fallen back from him. (M.) And شَرُّ الرَّأْىِ الدَّبَرِىُّ (T, Ṣ, A, Ḳ *) ‡ The worst opinion, or counsel, is that which occurs [to one] late, when the want [of it] is past; (T, Ṣ, Ḳ,* TA;) i. e., when the affair is past: or رَأْىٌ دَبَرِىٌّ signifies an opinion, or a counsel, not deeply looked into; and in like manner, جَوَابٌ, an answer, or a reply. (M.) And فُلَانٌ لَا يُصَلِّى الصَّلَاةَ إِلَّا دَبَرِيًّا (AZ, Ṣ, M, A, Ḳ) andدَبْرِيًّا↓, (AHeyth, Ḳ,) and the relaters of traditions say دُبُرِيًّا↓, (Ṣ,) which is said in the Ḳ to be a corruption, but it may have been heard from a good authority, and with respect to the rules of the language is chaste, for, accord. to IAth, دَبَرِىٌّ is a rel. n. irregularly formed from دُبُرٌ, (TA,) ‡ Such a one performs not prayer save in the last part of its time. (AZ, Ṣ, Ḳ *) It is said in a trad., لَا يَأْتِى الصَّلَاةِ إِلَّا دَبَرِيًّا; and in another, الّا دُبْرًا↓ orدَبْرًا↓, accord. to different relations; ‡ He will not come to prayer save at the last, or late: and in another, أَتَى الصَّلَاةَ دِبَارًا↓ ‡ He came to prayer at the latest of the times thereof; (IAạr, TA;) or after the time had gone: (Ṣ:) دِبَارٌ↓ being a pl. ofدُبُرٌ↓ andدُبْرٌ↓ meaning the last of the times of prayer &c. (IAạr, TA.) One says also,جَآءَ فُلَانٌ دَبْرِيًّا↓ ‡ Such a one came last, or latest. (A,* TA.) دبريًّا is in the accus. case as an adv. n. of time [like دُبْرًا and دَبْرًا and دِبَارًا], or as a denotative of state with respect to the agent of the verb. (TA.) In the passage in the Ḳ [where it is said that دَبَرِىٌّ signifies Prayer in the last of its time, &c.], there is a looseness. (TA.)
دُبُرِىٌّ: see the next preceding paragraph.
الدَّبَرَانُ [The Hyades: or the five chief stars of the Hyades: or the brightest star among them, a of Taurus:] five stars of Taurus, said to be his hump; (Ṣ;) one of the Mansions of the Moon; [namely, the Fourth;] a certain star, or asterism, between الثُّرَيَّا [or the Pleiades] and الجَوْزَآءُ [or Orion], also called التَّابِعُ and التُّوَيْبِعُ; (T;) it follows الثريّا, (T, M,) and therefore is thus named.

دَبُورٌ, used as a subst. and as an epithet, [of the fem. gender,] so that one says either رِيحُ الدَّبُورِ or رِيحٌ دَبُورٌ and simply دَبُورٌ, but more commonly used as an epithet, (M,) [The west wind: or a westerly wind: the west being regarded as the hinder quarter:] the wind that is opposite to that called الصَّبَا (Ṣ, L, Mṣb, Ḳ) and القَبُولُ, (L,) blowing from the direction of the place of sunset: (L, Mṣb:) or the wind that comes from [the direction of] the back, or hinder part, of the Kaabeh, going towards the place of sunrise: (M:) but IAth rejects this explanation: (TA:) or the wind that comes from the quarter behind a person when he is standing at the kibleh: [but this is a most strange explanation:] or, accord. to IAạr, the wind that blows from the tract extending from the place where En-Nesr et-Táïr [or Aquila] sets [i. e. about W. 10° N. in Central Arabia] to the place where Suheyl [or Canopus] rises [about Ṣ. 29° E. in Central Arabia]: (M:) or that comes from the direction of the south (الجَنُوب), going towards the place of sunrise: (Mṣb:) it is the worst of winds: it is said that it does not fecundate trees, nor raise clouds: (Meyd, TA:) and in a trad. it is said that the tribe of 'Ád was destroyed by it: (T, TA:) it blows only in the hot season, and is very thirsty: (TA voce نَكْبَآءُ:) pl. دُبُرٌ and دَبَائِرُ. (M.) [Hence the saying,] عَصَفَتْ دَبُورُهُ وَسَقَطَتْ عَبُورُهُ [lit. His west wind, or westerly wind, blew violently, and his Sirius set: meaning ‡ his evil fortune prevailed, and his good fortune departed: for the دبور is the worst of winds, as observed above, and Sirius sets aurorally in the beginning of winter, when provisions become scarce]. (A.)
