* عَلَى حِمْيَرِيَّاتٍ كَأَنَّ عُيُونَهَا *
* ذِمَامُ الرَّكَايَا أَنْكَزَتْهَا المَوَاتِحُ *

(M, Ḳ.) Hence, i. e. from ذِمَّةٌ in the first of the senses explained above, أَهلُ الذِّمَّةِ, (Ṣ, Mgh, TA.) and الذِّمِّةُ, (T, M,* Mgh, Ḳ, TA,) with the prefixed noun اهل suppressed, (TA,) The people with whom a compact, or covenant, &c., has been made; (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ, TA;) [and particularly] those, of the believers in a plurality of Gods, [by which are here meant the Christians, Jews, and Sabians, but no others,] who pay the [tax called] جِزْيَة; (T, TA;) [i. e. the free non-Muslim subjects of a Muslim government, who pay a poll-tax for which the Muslims are responsible for their security and freedom and toleration: see أَهْلٌ:] the appellation ذِمِّىٌّ↓, (Mgh, Mṣb,) a rel. n. from الذِّمَّةُ, (Mṣb;) is applied to a person of this class; (Mgh, Mṣb;) because he is rendered secure, or free from fear, for his property and his blood, by means of the جِزْيَة. (Mgh.) جَعَلَ عُمَرُ أَهْلَ السَّوَادِ ذِمَّةً means ʼOmar treated [lit. made] the people of the Sawád as those who are termed أَهْلُ الذِّمَّةِ. (Mgh.) And أَقْبِلْنَا بِذِمَّةٍ [or أَقْلِبْنَا?], in the prayer of the traveller, means Restore us to our family in safety. (TA.) It is related in a trad. of ʼAlee, that he said, ذِمَّتِى بِمَا أَقُولُ رَهِينَةٌ وَأَنَا بِهِ زَعِيمٌ, meaning My responsibility is pledged for [the truth of] what I say, and I am answerable for it; (Mgh, TA;*) i. e. this my saying is true, and I am responsible for it. (Mgh.) And it is said in another trad., فَقَدْ بَرِئَتْ مِنْهُ الذِّمَّة [Then the responsibility of God is clear, or quit, of him]; i. e. there is given to every one, by God, a covenant whereby He binds Himself to preserve and protect him; and when he throws himself into destruction, or does that which is unlawful for him to do, or acts at variance with that which he is commanded to do, the covenant of God fails to aid him. (TA.) فِى ذِمَّتِى كَذَا means فى ضَمَانِى [virtually I am responsible for such a thing; i. e. for paying it, or restoring it, &c.; but lit. in my responsibility is such a thing; or on my responsibility rests, or lies, or be, such a thing; for فى may be here used, as it is in many other instances, in the sense of عَلَى]: (Mṣb:) [or,] in the saying ثَبَتَ فِى ذِمَّتِى كَذَا, [which means Such a thing became, or has become, binding, obligatory, or incumbent, on me,] the term ذِمَّة is applied to designate [the moral sense considered as] the seat [of the sense] of obligation to fulfil what is [properly] termed ذِمَّة [i. e. a compact, or covenant, or the like]. (Mgh.) مَا يُذْهِبُ عَنِّى مَذِمَّةَ↓ الرَّضَاعِ (T, Ṣ, Mgh,*) orمَذَمَّةَ↓ الرَّضَاعِ, (T, Mgh,) meaning [What will put away from me the obligation of] the right, or due, of the woman who has suckled for the sucking? is a question occurring in a trad., (T, Ṣ, Mgh,*) as put by a man to the Prophet: (T:) and the answer was, “A slave, male or female:” (T, Ṣ, Mgh:) En-Nakha'ee says, (Ṣ,) they liked, on the occasion of the weaning of a child, to give the woman who had suckled it something beside the hire: (Ṣ, Mgh:) مَذَمَّةٌ↓ in this case is a dial. var. of مَذِمَّةٌ↓: (Mgh:) or, as IAth says, the former is from الذَّمُّ; and the latter, from الذِّمَّهُ. (TA.) You say also,أَذْهِبْ عَنْكَ مَذَمَّ↓ الرَّضَاعِ بِشَّىْءٍ تُعْطِيهِ الظِّئْرَ andمَذِمَّ↓ الرَّضَاعِ, meaning [Put away from thee the obligation of] the right, or due, that is incumbent on thee to render her for the sucking of thy child [by something that thou shalt give to her who has suckled]. (T.) Andأَذْهِبْ عَنْكَ مَذِمَّتَهُمْ↓ بِشَىْءٍ andمَذَمَّتَهُمْ↓, (T, and so accord. to different copies of the Ṣ and Ḳ, in which عنك is omitted,) مَذَمَّة being a dial. var., (T,) i. e. [Put away from thee the obligation of their right, or due, by something; meaning] feed them with something, (T,) or give to them something, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) for they have a right, or due. (T, Ṣ, Ḳ.) Andقَضَى مَذِمَّتَهُ↓ andمَذَمَّتَهُ↓ [He paid his right, or due;] meaning he did good to him, or conferred upon him a benefit or benefits, in order that he might not be blamed. (M, Ḳ.)
