رِفْهٌ [said in the Ḳ to be an inf. n. of رَفَهَ said of a man, and app. of رَفَهَت said of camels: or it is] a subst. from رَفَهَت said of camels; (Ṣ;) and [thus] signifies The coming of camels to the water to drink (JK, Ṣ,* Mgh) every day, (JK, Ṣ,*) when they will: (Ṣ,* Mgh:) or the shortest and quickest of the times of coming to water. (TA.) [See also ثِلْثٌ, and عُرَيْجَآءُ.] Lebeed uses it metaphorically in relation to palm-trees growing over water, saying,
* يَشْرَبْنَ رِفْهًا عِرَاكًا غَيْرَ صَادِيَةٍ ** فَكُلُّهَا كَارِعٌ فِى المَآءِ مُغْتَمِرُ *
[‡ They drink every day, together, not thirsting; and every one of them is sipping the water, dipping therein]. (TA.)

Straw; or straw that has been trodden, or thrashed, and cut: by some written رُفَّةٌ; and by some, رُفَتٌ]: (Kr, Ṣ, Ḳ:) whence the prov., أَغْنَى مِنَ التُّفَهِ عَنِ الرُّفَهِ [More free from want than the badger is from the want of straw]; التُّفَهُ meaning the beast of prey called عَنَاقُ الأَرْضِ; because it does not feed upon straw: (Ṣ:) [by some written التُّفَّهُ; and by some, التُّفَةُ; and by some, التُّفَّةُ:] accord. to some, the former word is with ة; and الرُّفَرُفَتٌ occurs as its pl. in a verse cited by IF: accord to ISk, the two words are correctly without teshdeed, and with the radical ه. (TA in art. تفه.) [See also رُفَتٌ, in art. رفت.]
رَفْهَةٌ Pity, compassion, or mercy. (AHeyth, Ḳ.) Thus expl. as used in the saying, إِذَا سَقَطَتِ الطَّرْفَهْ قَلَّتْ فِى الأَرْضِ الرَّفْهَه. (TA. [But الطَّرْفَه is here an evident mistranscription for الصَّرْفَه, the name of the Twelfth Mansion of the Moon: the meaning is, When الصرفه sets aurorally, pity becomes little in the earth; because then the cold ends: see art. صرف.])
