دفر دفع دفق


1. (دفع)

دَفَعَهُ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) aor. ـَ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. دَفْعٌ (Mṣb, Ḳ) and دَفَاعٌ (TA) and مَدْفَعٌ, (Ḳ,) [He impelled it, pushed it, thrust it, or drove it; and particularly, so as to remove it from its place; he propelled it; he repelled, or repulsed, it; he pushed it, thrust it, or drove it, away, or back;] he put it away, or removed it from its place, (Mṣb, TA,) by, or with, force, or strength: (TA:) or دَفْعٌ signifies the putting away or removing or turning back a thing before the coming or arriving [of that thing]; like as رَفْعٌ signifies the “putting away or removing or turning back” a thing “after the coming or arriving” thereof. (Kull p. 185.) Hence the saying in the Ḳur [ii. 252, and xxii. 41], وَلَوْ لَا دَفْعُ ٱللّٰهِ النَّاسَ [And were it not for God's repelling men]; where some readدِفَاعُ↓ [which means the same, as will be seen in the course of what follows, though bearing also another interpretation, likewise to be seen in what follows]. (TA.) You say, دَفَعْتُ الرَّجُلَ [I impelled, pushed, &c., the man]. (Ṣ.) Andدافعهُ↓, inf. n. دِفَاعٌ [and مُدَافَعَةٌ]; andدفّعهُ↓; (TA;) [both, app., accord. to the TA, signifying the same; but the latter more properly relates to several objects together, or signifies he impelled it, pushed it, &c., much, or vehemently, or often; whereas] مُدَافَعَةٌ (Ḳ, TA) and دِفَاعٌ (TA) are [often exactly] syn. with دَفْعٌ. (Ḳ, TA.) Thus, (TA,) you say, as meaning the same, دافع↓ عَنْهُ and دَفَعَ [He repelled from him; whence another explanation of these two phrases, which see in what follows]. (Ṣ, TA.) And hence, دَفَعَ ٱللّٰهُ عَنْكَ المَكْرُوهَ, inf. n. دَفْعٌ, ‡ [May God repel, or avert, from thee what is disliked, or hated, or evil]: (TA:) andدَافَعَ↓ ٱللّٰهُ عَنْكَ السُّوْءَ, inf. n. دِفَاعٌ, ‡ [May God repel, or avert, from thee evil]. (Ṣ, TA.) And دَفَعْتُ عَنْهُ الأَذَى[I repelled, or averted, from him what was hurtful, or annoying; as alsoدَافَعْتُ↓]. (Mṣb, Ḳ, TA.) Sb mentions, as a saying of the Arabs, اِدْفَعِ الشَّرَّ وَلَوْ إِصْبَعًا[Repel thou, or avert thou, evil, or mischief, though but with a finger: the last word being in the accus. case by reason of the subaudition of the prep. ب; the meaning being بِإِصْبَعٍ]. (TA.) [See also an ex. voce دَفُوعٌ.] When دَفْعٌ is made trans. by means of عَنْ, [and has a single objective complement, a second objective complement is understood, and in general] it has the meaning or the act of † Defending; as in the Ḳur [xxii. 39], إِنَّ ٱللّٰهَ يَدْفَعُ عَنْ ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا[Verily God defendeth those who have believed; i. e. repelleth from them aggression and the like]; (B;) andيُدَافِعُ↓, in the same, (Ḳ, TA,) accord. to another reading, signifies the same; (Ḳ, TA;) or this latter signifies † defendeth energetically, with the energy of him who contendeth for superiority in so doing. (Bḍ.) Andدَافَعْتُ↓ عَنْهُ signifies [also]I pleaded, or contended in arguments, in defence of him. (Mṣb.) [Exceptions to the statement cited above form the B will be found in what follows in this paragraph; and another exception, voce مُدَفَّعٌ.]

Accord. to En-Naḍr, one says دَفَعَتْ بِلَبِنِهَا, and بِاللَّبَنِ, when her young is in her belly; but when she has brought forth, one does not say دَفَعَتْ. (TA.)
