رَكَبَهُ, aor. ـُ, (Ṣ, A, Ḳ,) inf. n. رَكْبٌ, (TA,) [from رُكْبَةٌ,] He struck, or smote, his knee: (Ṣ, A, Ḳ:) or it signifies, (Ḳ,) or signifies also, (Ṣ, A,) he struck him, or smote him, with his knee: (Ṣ, A, Ḳ:) or he took him by his hair, (Ḳ,) or by the hair of each side of his head, (TA,) and struck his forehead with his knee.

And in another trad., أَمَا تَعْرِفُ الأَزْدَ وَرَكْبَهَا اِتَّقِ الأَزْدَ لَا يَأْخُذُوكَ فَيَرْكُبُوكَ [Knowest thou not El-Azd, (the tribe so called,) and their striking with the knee? Beware thou of El-Azd, lest they take thee, and strike thee with their knees]: for this practice was notorious among El-Azd; in the dial. of whom, أُمُّ كَيْسَانَ was a metonymical appellation of the knee. (TA.)
رُكِبَ, like عُنِىَ, [pass. in form, but neut. in signification,] He (a man) had a complaint of his knee. (TA.)

(Kull p. 118.) You say, رَكَّبَ الفَصَّ فِى الخَاتَمِ (Ṣ, A) He set the stone in the signet-ring: and ركّب السِّنَانَ فِى القَنَاةِ He fixed the spearhead in the shaft; (A;) and النَّصْلَ فِى السَّهْمِ [the arrow-head in the shaft].

رَكْبٌ: see رَاكِبٌ, in three places.
رَكَبٌ The عَانَة: (ISk, Mṣb, Ḳ:) or the place of growth of the عَانَة, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) or of the hair of the عَانَة: (Mgh:) [i. e. it signifies the pubes; either as meaning the hair of the mons Veneris, or the mons Veneris itself: generally the latter; and this is often meant by the term عانة alone:] or the part that slopes down from the belly, and is beneath the ثُنَّة [q. v.] and above the pudendum: in all these senses said by Lḥ to be masc.: (TA:) or the pudendum (Az, Mṣb, Ḳ) itself: (TA:) or the external portion thereof: (Ḳ:) or the رَكَبَانِ are the roots of the two thighs, upon which is the flesh of the pudendum, (Ḳ, TA,) or upon which are the two portions of flesh of the pudendum: (TA:) the ركب is masc.: (Mṣb:) it is common to the man and the woman, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ,*) accord. to Fr: (Ṣ, Mṣb:) or peculiar to the woman, (Ṣ, Mgh, Ḳ,) accord. to Kh: (Ṣ:) El-Farezdaḳ makes it plainly common to both, saying,
* حِينَ ٱلتَقَى الرَّكَبُ المَحْلُوقُ بِالرَّكَبِ *
[When the shaven pubes met the pubes]: (TA: [and a similar ex. is given in the Ṣ and Mṣb, as cited by Fr:]) the pl. is أَرْكَابٌ (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ) and أَرَاكِيبُ; (Ḳ;) the latter being pl. of the former; but in some copies of the Ḳ أَرَاكِبُ, like مَسَاجِدُ. (TA.)
Also Whiteness in the رُكْبَة [or knee]. (TA.)
رَكْبَةٌ A single ride, or act of riding: pl. رَكَبَاتٌ. (IAth, L.)
[Hence,] one says, هُوَ يَمْشِى الرَّكْبَةَ ‡ [i. e. يَرْكَبُ رَأْسَهُ He goes at random, heedlessly, or in a headlong manner, &c., (see 1,)] and هُمْ يَمْشُونَ الرَّكَبَاتِ ‡ [They go at random, &c.]. (A. [The meaning is there indicated by the context, and is shown by what here follows.]) Respecting the phrase تمْشُونَ الرَّكَبَاتِ, occurring in a trad., meaning تَرْكَبُونَ رُؤُوسَكُمْ † [Ye go at random, &c.], in that which is false, wrong, or vain, and in factions, or seditions, or the like, following one another without consideration, IAth says that رَكْبَةٌ [properly] signifies as explained above in the first sentence of this paragraph, and that the pl. الركبات is here governed in the accus. case by a verb understood, and [with that verb] is a denotative of state relating to the agent in تمشون: it supplies the place of that verb, which it does not require to be expressed; and the implied meaning is تَمْشُونَ تَرْكَبُونَ الرَّكَبَاتِ. (L.)
رُكْبَةٌ a word of well-known meaning, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) [The knee; i. e., in a man,] the joint between the lower parts of the thigh and the upper parts of the shank: (A, Ḳ:) or [in a quadruped,] the joint between the metacarpus and the radius (مَوْصِلُ الوَظِيفِ وَالذِّرَاعِ): this is the right explanation: in the Ḳ, مَوْضِع is erroneously put for مَوْصِل: [this explanation is evidently given accord. to the terms employed in the anatomy of quadrupeds as compared to human beings: in that which next follows, there is certainly an omission, which I have endeavoured to supply:] or the رُكْبَتَانِ of the fore legs of the camel are the two joints that [project forwards, in like manner as do, in the hind legs, those that] are next the belly [meaning the stifle-joints] when he lies down upon his breast with folded legs: the two joints that project behind [in the hind legs, namely, the hocks,] are called the عُرْقُوبَانِ: in every quadruped, the ركبتان are in the fore legs, and the عرقوبان are in the hind legs: and the عرقوب is what is called مَوْصِلُ الوَظِيفِ [i. e. the upper joint of the metatarsus]: (TA:) or the ركبة is the مِرْفَق [which in a man is the elbow, but here seems to mean the lower joint] of the ذِرَاع [or radius] of anything [i. e. of any beast]: (Ḳ:) [from its being said in the Ṣ and Mṣb that the رُكْبَة is “well known,” I conclude that there is no real discrepancy in the foregoing explanations: it is perhaps needless to add that the term رُكْبَة is now universally applied to the knee of a man and to what we commonly call the knee of a horse and the like:] the pl. is رُكَبٌ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) i. e. the pl. of mult., and the pl. of pauc. is رُكْبَاتٌ and رُكَبَاتٌ and رُكُبَاتٌ. (Ṣ.) Lḥ mentions the phrase بَعِيرٌ مُسْتَوْقِحُ الرُّكَبِ [meaning A hardkneed camel]; as though the term رُكْبَةٌ were applied to each part, and the pl. used accord. to this application. (TA.)
One says [of an agitating affair or event], أَمْرٌ ٱصْطَكَّتْ فِيهِ الرُّكَبُ وَحَكَّتْ فِيهِ الرُّكْبَةُ الرُّكَبَةَ ‡ [An affair, or event, in which the knees knocked together, and in which the knee rubbed the knee]. (A.)
And of one who has the mark of prostration in prayer on his forehead, between his eyes, (L,) بَيْنَ عَيْنَيْهِ مِثْلُ رُكْبَةِ العَنْزِ [Between his eyes is the like of the knee of the she-goat]. (A,* L.) And of any two things that are alike, or correspondent, هُمَا كَرُكْبَتَى العَنْزِ [They are like the two knees of the she-goat]; because her two knees fall together upon the ground when she lies down. (L.)
And it is said in a prov., شَرُّ النَّاسِ مَنْ مِلْحُهُ عَلَى رُكعبَتِهِ [The worst of men is he whose fat is upon his knee]: applied to him who is quickly angered; and to the perfidious: (Meyd, TA:) the phrase مِلْحُهُ عَلَى رُكْبَتِهِ is also used as meaning The smallest thing makes him angry: (TA:) and a poet says,
* لَا تَلُمْهَا إِنَّهَا مِنْ عُصْبَةٍ ** مِلْحُهَا مَوْضُوعَةٌ فَوْقَ الرُّكَبْ *
[Blame her not; for she is of a set of people whose fat is placed above the knees: perhaps meaning, for she is but a woman; as women are generally fat in the part above the knee]: (TA:) or مِنْ نِسْوَةٍ [in the place of مِنْ عُصْبَةٍ], meaning of women whose object of anxiety, or care, is fatness and fat: (Meyd, TA:) so that the prov. seems to mean that the worst of men is he who has not such intelligence as bids him to do that which is praiseworthy, but only bids him to do that in which is inconstancy and levity, and an inclining to the dispositions of women, to the love of fatness and fat. (Meyd.) [See other explanations in art. ملح.]
Also The lower part (أَصْل) of the plant صِلِّيَانَة, when it has been cut. (Ḳ.)
رِكْبَةٌ A mode, or manner, of riding. (Ṣ.) You say, هُوَ حَسَنُ الرِّكْبَةِ He has a good mode, or manner, of riding. (A,* TA.)
[It is said in the Ḳ to be a subst. from رَكِبَهُ; as though signifying A riding.]
رَكَبَةٌ A company of riders upon camels, (Ḳ,) or of owners of camels on a journey, or travellers upon camels, exclusively of other beasts, (Ṣ,) but less in number than the company called رَكْبٌ: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) [and probably also a company of riders upon any beasts, but less than what is called رَكْبٌ:] accord. to MF, it is a pl. of رَاكِبٌ. (TA.) [See also أُرْكُوبٌ.]
رَكْبَى and رَكْبَاةٌ: see رَكُوبٌ.
رَكَبُوتٌ and رَكَبُوتَى: see رَكُوبٌ.
رَكْبَانَةٌ: see رَكُوبٌ, in two places.
رِكَابٌ [Travelling-camels, used for riding; i. e.] camels (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA) upon which people journey; (Ṣ, TA;) i. q. مَطِىٌّ: (Mṣb:) or camels fit for carrying: (Ḥar p. 22:) it has no proper sing.: (Ṣ:) the word used for the sing. is رَاحِلَةٌ: (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ:) or, as ISh says, in the “Book of Camels,” رِكَابٌ and عِيرٌ are applied to camels that go forth for corn (طَعَام) to be brought back upon them, both when they go forth and after they have come back: and the former term is applied also to camels upon which people journey to Mekkeh, on which مَحَامِل are borne: and hired [or other] camels that carry the goods and corn of merchants: but camels are not called عير, though bearing corn, [unless] if hired: [I insert the words “or other” and “unless” because it is further said,] عير are not those that bring corn for their owners; but these are called رِكَابٌ: (L, TA:) the pl. is رُكُبٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) accord. to AʼObeyd, (TA,) and رِكَابَاتٌ and رَكَائِبُ; (Ḳ;) or, accord. to IAạr, رُكُبٌ is not pl. of رِكَابٌ; and others say that it is pl. ofرَكُوبٌ↓, signifying any beast on which one rides, [an epithet] of the measure فَعُولٌ in the sense of the measure مَفْعُولٌ; (TA;) but called by ISd a subst.; (TA voce جَزُوزٌ;) andرَكُوبَةٌ↓ is a more special term than رَكُوبٌ. (TA in the present art.)
[Hence,] رِكَابُ السَّحَابِ ‡ [The bearers of the clouds; i. e.] the winds. (A, Ḳ.) Umeiyeh says,
* تَرَدَّدُ وَالرِّيَاحُ لَهَا رِكَابُ *
[It (referring to a cloud) goes to and fro (تَرَدَّد being for تَتَرَدَّدُ), the winds being its bearers]. (TA.)
Also [The stirrup of a horse's saddle;] a well-known appertenance of a horse's saddle; (Ṣ;) the same with respect to a horse's saddle as the غَرْز with respect to a camel's: pl. رُكُبٌ. (Ḳ.)
رَكُوبٌ andرَكُوبَةٌ↓: see رِكَابٌ: both signify A beast that is ridden: (Ṣ:) or a she-camel that is ridden: (Ḳ:) or the latter has this meaning: and is metaphorically applied to anything ridden: (Mṣb:) or the former signifies any beast that is ridden: and the latter is a name for everything that is ridden; applied to one, and to a pl. number: (TA:) or the former signifies ridden, as a fem. epithet: and the latter, one specially appointed for riding; and that is constantly kept to work; of beasts (Ḳ, TA) of any kind: (TA:) and the latter andرَكْبَانَةٌ↓ andرَكْبَاةٌ↓ andرَكَبُوتٌ↓ (Ḳ) andرَكْبَى↓ andرَكَبُوتَى↓, (Ḳ * and TA in art. حلب, [see حَلُوبٌ in several places,]) a she-camel that is ridden; or that is broken, trained, or rendered submissive or manageable: (Ḳ:) or رَكُوبٌ has this last signification, accord. to AZ: and its pl. is رُكُبٌ: (TA:) the pl. of رَكُوبَةٌ being رَكَائِبُ: (TA voce جَزُوزٌ:) andرَكْبَانَةٌ↓ signifies [also] a she-camel fit to be ridden; (Ṣ, TA;) like as حَلْبَانَةٌ signifies fit to be milked: the ا and ن are [said to be] added in order to give intensiveness to the signification: (TA:) [and all the other epithets mentioned above seem also, accord. to some, to have an intensive sense: see حَلُوبٌ.] You say, مَا لَهُ رَكُوبَةٌ وَلَا حَمُولَةٌ وَلَا حَلُوبَةٌ He has not a she-camel to ride, nor one to carry burdens, nor one to be milked. (Ṣ, TA.)

رَكَّابَةٌ: see the latter part of the next paragraph.
رَاكِبٌ Riding; or a rider: (Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ:) or properly only a rider upon a camel: (ISk, Ṣ, Ḳ:) or the latter is its meaning when it is not used as a prefixed noun, as explained below; and is said to be the original signification: IB says that it may signify a rider upon a camel, ass, horse, or mule, when used as a prefixed noun; as when you say رِاكِبُ جَمَلٍ and رَاكِبُ حِمَارٍ &c.: (L:) accord. to ISk, you term a rider upon an ass فَارِسٌ عَلَى حِمَارٍ, (Ṣ, TA,) and a rider upon a mule فَارِسٌ عَلَى بَغْلٍ; (TA;) but 'Omarah says, I do not call the owner or rider of the ass فارس, but حَمَّارٌ; and the reason of his saying so is manifest, for فارس is an epithet of the measure فَاعِلٌ from الفَرَسُ “the horse,” meaning “an owner, or a rider, of the horse:” (Ṣ, TA:) the pl. is رُكَّابٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ) and رُكْبَانٌ (Ṣ,* Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ) and رُكُوبٌ (Mgh, Ḳ) and رِكَبَةٌ, (Ḳ,) or this last is a mistake for رَكَبَةٌ [q. v.], (MF, TA,) andرَكْبٌ↓, (Akh, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA,) as some say; (TA;) or this last is a quasi-pl. n., (Ḳ, TA,) not a broken pl. of رَاكِبٌ; (TA;) and signifies riders upon camels; (Ḳ;) or owners of camels on a journey, or travellers upon camels; (Ṣ;) consisting of ten or more: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) and sometimes it signifies riders upon horses: (IB, Ḳ:) or riders upon horses and camels: (IB, L, TA:) or a company of riders upon horses; or upon horses and camels: (TA:) [or, accord. to Kh, riders upon any beasts: (De Sacy's Anthol. Gram. Ar. p. 54 of the Arabic text:)] in the Ḳur viii. 43, الرَّكْبُ may signify the riders upon horses, or the riders upon camels, or the army composed of both these: (TA:) the pl. of رَكْبٌ is أَرْكُبٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) [a pl. of pauc.,] and رُكُوبٌ. (Ḳ.) Accord. to IB, you do not sayرَكْبُ↓ إِبِلٍ nor رُكْبَانُ إِبِلٍ: but it is said that رُكَّابُ إِبِلٍ and رُكَّابُ خَيْلٍ &c. are allowable. (L.) An instance of رُكْبَان as distinguished from فُرْسَان occurs in a verse cited as one of the exs. of the preposition بِ. (TA.) رُكَيْبٌ↓ [properly signifying A small company of riders upon camels, &c.,] occurs as meaning collectors of the poorrates: it is the dim. of رَكْبٌ↓; and shows that this latter is not a pl. [properly speaking] of رَاكِبٌ; for, were it so, the word used as its dim. would be رُوَيْكِبُونَ. (TA.) [See also رَكَبَةٌ, and أُرْكُوبٌ.]
