رطى رع رعب
رَعٌّ The being still, syn. سُكُونٌ, [a signification contr. to one borne by two other words in this art.,] (IAạr, Ḳ,) is the inf. n. of رَعَّتِ الرِّيحُ, aor. ـُ, [probably a mistake for ـِ, which is the regular form of an intrans. verb of this class, notwithstanding the guttural letter,] The wind was, or became, still. (TḲ.)
R. Q. 1. (رعرع)
رَعْرَعَهُ He (God) caused him [a child, or boy, as is implied in the Ṣ,] to grow. (Ṣ, Z, Ḳ.)
رَعْرَعَ دَابَّتَهُ He (a horseman) rode his beast to train it when it was in the first stage of training and as yet refractory. (O, TṢ, Ḳ.) In IN the L we find إِذَا لَمْ تَكُنْ رَيِّضًا, [meaning when it was not trained, رَيِّضًا being here used in the sense of مَرُوضَةً,] in the place of إِذَا كَانَتْ رَيِّضًا, which is the reading in the O and TṢ and Ḳ. (TA.)
