الدَّسْتَبَنْدُ

[from the Pers. دَسْبَنْدْ] A certain game of the Magians, which they thus call; i. q. الدَّعْكَسَةُ: (Ṣ and Ḳ in art. دعكس:) they turn round [in a circle, as though imitating the revolutions of the “ host of heaven ”], having taken one another by the hand, [in a manner] like dancing. (Ḳ in that art.) [Hence probably originated the similar performances of certain Muslim darweeshes in celebrating what they term a ذِكْر, described in the works of several travellers, and in my own work on the Modern Egyptians.]
