دَفْرٌ (T, Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb, Ḳ) andدَفَرٌ↓, (IAạr, M, A, Ḳ,) the former a simple subst., and the latter an inf. n., (Mṣb,) or both inf. ns., (A,) andدَفْرَةٌ↓, (Mṣb,) Stink; stench: (IAạr, T, Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb, Ḳ:) never used to signify a sweet smell: (M:) accord. to Aboo-” Alee El-Ḳálee, دَفَرٌ↓ has the above-mentioned signification; but دَفْرٌ signifies pungency of odour, whether stinking or sweet: other authorities, however, assert, accord. to what is transmitted from them, that the word signifying intense pungency of odour, whether sweet or bad, is ذَفَرٌ, with ذ, and with two fet-ḥahs, whence مِسْكٌ أَذْفَرُ: IAạr says that ذَفَرٌ↓ signifies stink, or stench; and ذَفْرٌ, baseness, or vileness; but this is not known on any other authority. (M, L, TA.)
Hence the saying of ʼOmar, وَدَفْرَاهْ, meaning [Alas, what stench! i. e., † Alas, what an abominable thing! i. e.] وَانَتْنَاهْ: (AʼObeyd, T, Ṣ, M:) or it means Alas, what baseness, or vileness! (IAạr, T, M.)
Hence also the phrase, دَفْرًا لَهُ, meaning [May God make stench to cleave to him, or it! i. e., † Fy, or shame, upon him, or it! i. e.] نَتْنًا لَهُ: (Ṣ, Mgh:) andدَفْرًا دَفِرًا↓ لِمَا يَجِىْءُ بِهِ فُلَانٌ, (T,* Ṣ, M,) meaning [May foul stench cleave to that which such a one doth! i. e., † Foul shame upon it! i. e.] نَتْنًا; (Ṣ, M;) but in an intensive sense; (M;) said in declaring a man's case, or affair, to be bad, or abominable. (T, Ṣ.)
Hence, too, الدَّفْرُ, (TA,) and أُمُّ دَفْرٍ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) † Calamity, or misfortune. (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA.)
And أُمُّ دَفْرٍ, (T, Ṣ, A, Ḳ,) written by Aboo-ʼAlee El-Ḳálee أُمُّ دَفَرٍ↓, but this is wrong, (R,) andأُمُّ دَفْرَةَ↓, (IAạr,) andدَفَارِ↓, and أُمُّ دَفَارِ, (M, Ḳ,) † The present world; (T, Ṣ, M, A, Ḳ;) because of its calamities, or misfortunes. (TA.)
