(Ḳ. [So too, accord. to the TA, in the M; but in the text of the M as given in the TT, دفّنهُ.]) One says to a man who is obscure, unnoted, or of no reputation, دَفَنْتَ نَفْسَكَ فِىحَيَاتِكَ (tropical:) [Thou hast buried thyself in thy lifetime].

6التَّدَافُنُ

signifies المَوْتَى مُدَافَنَةُ [i. e. The cooperating in the burying of the dead]. (TA.) لَا يَكَادُ النَّاسُ يَتَدَافَنُونَ [The people can hardly, or cannot nearly, bury one another] is said in the case of a quick and spreading death. (TA voce ذَرِيغٌ.)
[Hence,] تَدَافَنُوا (tropical:) They practised concealment, one with another; syn. تَكَاتَمُوا. (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA.) It is said in a trad., لَوْ تَكَاشَفْتُمْ لَمَا تَدَافَنْتُمْ (tropical:) [If ye revealed, one to another his faults, or his secrets, ye would not practise concealment, one with another, in any case]; meaning, if the fault, (عَيْب, as in my copies of the Ṣ and in the TA in the present art.,) or secret or secrets, (غَيْب, as in one of my copies of the Ṣ in art. كشف,) of each one of you were open, or revealed, to each other of you: (Ṣ, TA:) or, accord. to IAth, [if ye revealed, one to another his secrets, ye would not bury one another; for he says that] the meaning is, if each one of you knew what is concealed in the mind of each other of you, the conducting of his funeral, and his burial, would be deemed onerous. (TA in art. كشف.)

7اندفن

It was, or became, buried, or interred; i. e., hidden, concealed, or covered, (Ṣ, * M, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA,) in the earth, or dust, (TA,) or beneath layers, or strata of earth, or dust: (Mṣb:) and اِدَّفَنَ, of the measure اِفْتَعَلَ, signifies the same; (Ṣ;) or تدفّن. (M, Ḳ.)

Also, said of a slave, He ran away [given without any addition as one of the explanations in the Ṣ] before arriving at the city [or place] in which he was to be sold: (T, M, Ḳ:) this is not a running away (إِبَاق) for which he is to be returned [to the seller]: so says Yezeed Ibn-Hároon: but he adds that if he arrive there and run away, he is to be returned for it, though he do not absent himself from that city [or place]: (T:) or he absented himself, (T,) or stole away, (Ṣ, M, Mgh,) from his owners [or owner] for a day or two days, (T, Ṣ, M, Mgh,) as AZ says, (T, Ṣ,) or, (T, M,) as AO says, (T, Ṣ,) without absenting himself from the city [or place in which he was sold]; (T, Ṣ, M, Mgh;) as though he buried himself in the houses of that city [or place] in fear of punishment for an offence that he had committed: (Mgh:) thus, agreeably with the explanations of AZ and AO, the verb is used by the Arabs: (A'Obeyd, T:) and the epithet دَفُونٌ, applied to a slave, means one who does as is described above; (Ḳ;) or who is wont to do so: (T, Ṣ, M, Mgh:) or the verb signifies he fled from his owner, or from hard, or severe, work, but did not go forth from the town, or the like; and the doing so is not a fault [for which he may be returned to the seller], for it is not termed إِبَاق. (Mṣb.)
