ريغ ريف ريق
1. (ريف ⇒ راف)
رَافَ, aor. يَرِيفُ, He (a man of the desert) came to the رِيف; (T, O, Ḳ;) as alsoأَرْيَفَ↓ andتريّف↓: (Ḳ:) or he entered the region, district, or tract, of cities, towns, or villages, and of cultivated land: or رَافُوا signifies they approached the رِيف; and soتريّفوا↓: (Ḥam p. 676:) or this last, they journeyed to the رِيف; (M;) and soأَرْيَفُوا↓: (Ṣ,* M:) orتريّفنا↓, we abode, or stayed, in [a region of] cities, towns, or villages, and where water was reached by digging, or where it was apparent, running upon the surface of the earth. (T.)
And رَافَتِ المَاشِيَةُ The cattle pastured in the رِيف. (Ṣ, Ḳ.)
رايف لِلظِّنَّةِ He was, or became, near to [having, or incurring] الظِّنَّة [i. e. suspicion, or evil opinion]; syn. قَارَفَهَا, and طَنَّفَ لَهَا. (Ibn-ʼAbbád, O, Ḳ.) [Freytag, app. misled by the TḲ, renders رايف, followed by ل, as meaning “Falsa protulit, calumniis accusavit.” He also assigns to رايف the signification of “Adpropinquavit regioni ريف,” as on the authority of the Ḥam; in which I do not find it.]
4. (اريف ⇒ اراف)

ارافت الأَرْضُ, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) inf. n. إِرَافَةٌ and [accord. to some] رِيفٌ↓; like اخصبت, inf. n. إِخْصَابٌ and خِصْبٌ; but, [ISd says,] in my opinion, إِرَافَةٌ is the inf. n., and رِيفٌ is the subst.; and in like manner one should say of إِخْصَابٌ and خِصْبٌ; (M, TA;) The land abounded, or became abundant, with herbage, and with the goods, conveniences, or comforts, of life; (Ṣ, M,* Ḳ;) as also أَرْيَفَت.
