سَلَّ الشَّىٌءَ, (Ṣ, M, Mgh,) aor. ـُ, (Ṣ, M,) inf. n. سَلٌّ; (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Ḳ;) andاستلّهُ↓, (M,) inf. n. اِسْتِلَالٌ; (Ḳ; [in the CK, الِاسْلال is put in the place of الِاسْتِلَال;]) He drew the thing out or forth from another thing: (Jel in xxiii. 12:) or he pulled out the thing, or drew it forth, gently: (M, Ḳ:*) or he drew, or pulled, the thing out, or forth, as a sword from its scabbard, and a hair from dough. (Mgh.) You say, سَلَّ السَّيْفَ, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) aor. and inf. n. as above; (Mṣb;) andاستلّهُ↓, both signifying the same; (Ṣ;) [i. e. He drew the sword;] as alsoاسلّهُ↓, inf. n. إِسْلَالٌ. (TA.) In the saying of El-Farezdaḳ,
* غَدَاةَ تَوَلَّيْتُمْ كَانَّ سُيُوفَكُمْ **ذَآنِينُ فِى أَعْنَاقِكُمْ لَمْ تُسَلْسَلِ↓ *
[In the morning when ye turned back, as though your swords were ذآنين (pl. of ذُؤْنُونٌ a species of fungus) upon your necks, (for the sword was hung upon the shoulder, not by a waist-belt,) not drawn forth], he has separated the doubled letter: thus the verse is related by IAạr: but by Th, لَمْ تَسَلَّلِ↓ [for تَتَنَسَلَّلِ]. (M.) It is said in a trad., لَأَسُلَّنَّكَ مِنْهُمْ كَمَا تُسَلُّ الشَّعْرَةُ مِنَ العَجِينِ [I will assuredly draw thee forth from them like as the single hair is drawn forth from dough]. (TA.) And in another trad., اَللّٰهُمَّ أْسْلُلْ سَخِيمَةَ قَلْبِى ‡ [O God, draw forth the rancour of my heart]: and hence the saying الهَدَايَا تَسُلُّ السَّخَائِمَ وَتَحُلُّ الشَّكَائِمَ ‡ [Presents draw away feelings of rancour, and loose, or melt, resistances, or incompliances]. (TA.) And سُلَّ, said of a colt, means He was drawn forth a سَلِيل [q. v.]. (M, TA.)
Also He took the thing. (Mṣb.) Hence one says, تُسَلُّ المَيِّتُ مِنْ قِبَلِ رَأْسِهِ إِلَى القَبْرِ, i. e. [The dead body] is taken [head-foremost to the grave]: (Mṣb:) [or is drawn forth &c.: for] it is said of the Apostle of God, سُلَّ مِنْ قِبَل رَأْسِهِ, meaning He was drawn forth [&c.] from the bier. (Mgh.)
Also, aor. and inf. n. as above, He stole the thing: (Mṣb, TA:) or he stole it covertly, secretly, or clandestinely; (TA;) and soاسلّهُ↓. (TḲ. [But see 4, below, where اسلّ meaning “he stole” is mentioned only as intrans.]) You say, سَلَّ البَعِيرَ جَوْفِ اللَّيْلِ He drew away the camel from among the other camels in the middle of the night: and in like manner you say of other things. (TA.)
سَلَّ, aor. ـِ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. سَلٌّ, (TḲ,) said of a man; (TA;) or سَلَّتْ, aor. ـَ, [whence it would seem that the sec. pers. of the pret. is سَلِلْتَ, and the inf. n. سَلَلٌ,] said of a sheep or goat, شاة; (M;) He, or it, lost his, or its, teeth: (M, Ḳ:) on the authority of Lḥ. (M.)
سُلَّ, (M, Mṣb, Ḳ,) in the pass. form, (Mṣb,) with damm, (Ḳ,) He was, or became, affected with the disease termed سِلّ [q. v.]. (M, Mṣb, Ḳ.)
see 1, second sentence.
اسلّ, (ISk, Ṣ, M, Mgh,) inf. n. إِسْلَالٌ, (ISk, Ṣ, Ḳ,) also signifies He stole: (ISk, Ṣ, Mgh:) or he stole covertly, secretly, or clandestinely. (M, Ḳ.) See also 1, in the latter half of the paragraph. You say, اسلّ مِنَ المَغْنَمِ He stole of the spoil. (Mgh.)
إِسْلَالٌ signifies also An open raid or predatory incursion. (TA.)
And اسلّ He aided another to steal, or to steal covertly, secretly, or clandestinely. (TA.)
[See also إِسْلَالٌ below. Accord. to Freytag, اسلّ signifies He received a bribe: but this requires consideration: he gives no authority but the Ḳ, which does not justify this explanation.]
اسلّهُ He (God) caused him to be affected with the disease termed سِلّ [q. v.]. (Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ.)
Also i. q. اِضْطَرَبَ [It was, or became, in a state of commotion, agitation, &c.]; said of a thing; as though it were imagined to be repeatedly drawn forth. (Er-Rághib, TA.)
انسلّ It (a thing) became pulled out, or drawn forth, gently; (M;) it became drawn, or pulled out or forth, as a sword from its scabbard, and a hair from dough. (Mgh.) You say, انسلّ السَّيْفُ مِنَ الغَمْدِ The sword [became drawn from the scabbard: or] slipped out from the scabbard. (TA.) And انسلّ قِيَادُالفَرَسِ مِنْ يَدِهِ [The leading-rope of the horse slipped out or] came forth [from his hand]. (Mgh.)
And [hence], as alsoتسلّل↓, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) He slipped away, or stole away; i. e., went away covertly, secretly, or clandestinely: (M, Ḳ:) or he went forth, مِنْ بَيْنِهِمْ [from among them]. (Ṣ.) And اِنْسَلَلْتُ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ I went away, and went forth, deliberately, or leisurely, and by degrees, from before him. (TA.) Sb says that اِنْسَلَلْتُ [used in this or a similar sense] is not a quasi-pass. verb; but is only like [a verb of the measure] فَعَلْتُ; like as اِفْتَقَرَ is like ضَعُفَ. (M.) It is said in a prov., رَمَتْنِى بِدَائِهَاوَٱنْسَلَّتْ [She reproached me with her own fault, and slipped away]: (Ṣ, Meyd, TA:) [originally] said by one of the fellow-wives of Ruhm, daughter of El-Khazraj, wife of Saạd Ibn-Zeyd-Menáh, on Ruhm's reproaching her with a fault that was in herself. (Meyd, TA. [See also Freytag's Arab. Prov. cap. x. no. 2; and another prov. there referred to in cap. ii. no. 78.]) And one says also,استلّ↓ بِكَذَا, meaning He went away with such a thing covertly, secretly, or clandestinely. (TA.)

سِلٌّ (Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ) andسُلَالٌ↓, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) the former [the more common, and] often occurring in the verses of chaste poets, though El-Hareeree says in the “Durrat el-Ghowwáṣ” that it is an erroneous term of the vulgar, and that the latter is the right term, (TA,) signify the same, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) as alsoسُلٌّ↓ andسَلَّةٌ↓, (Ḳ,) [Consumption: or phthisis:] an emaciating, oppressive, and fatal malady: (T, TA:) a certain disease, well known; said in the medical books to be one of the diseases of girls, because of the abundance of blood in them: (Mṣb:) accord. to the physicians, (TA,) an ulcer, (Ḳ, TA,) or ulcers, (Mṣb,) [or ulceration,] in the lungs; (Mṣb, Ḳ, TA;) succeeding (تُعَقِّبُ [grammatically referring to سَلَّة]) either ذَات الرِّئَة [i. e. inflammation of the lungs] or ذَات الجَنْب [i. e. pleurisy]: (in the CK, بِعَقَبِ ذات الرِّيّةِ اوذاتِ الجَنْبِ is [erroneously] put in the place of تُعَقِّبُ ذَاتَ الرِّئَةِ أَوْ ذَاتَ الجَنْبِ: and in what here follows, the gen. case is put in the place of the nom. in four instances:) or a rheum (زُكَامٌ), and defluxions (نَوَازِلُ), or a long cough, and attended with constant fever. (Ḳ, TA.)
Hence the saying, in a trad., غُبَارُذَيْلِ المَرْأَةِ الفَاجِرَةِ يُورثُ السِّلَّ † [The dust of the skirt of the vitious woman occasions the loss of property]; meaning that he who follows vitious women and acts vitiously, loses his property, and becomes poor: the diminution and departure of property being likened to the diminution and wasting away of the body when one has the disorder termed سِلّ. (TA.)
سَلَّةٌ The drawing of swords; (Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) as alsoسِلَّةٌ↓. (Ḳ.) So in the saying, أَتَيْنَاهُمْ عِنْدَ السَّلَّةِ [We came to them on the occasion of the drawing of swords]. (Ṣ, M, Ḳ.)
And Theft: (Ṣ, Mṣb:) or covert, secret, or clandestine, theft; (M, Ḳ;) like إِسْلَالٌ [except that the former is a simple subst., and the latter is an inf. n., i. e. of 4]: (Ḳ:) one says, فِى بَنِى فُلَانٍ سَلَّةٌ [Among the sons of such a one is theft, or covert theft]: (Ṣ:) and الخَلَّةُ تَدْعُو إِلَى السَّلَّةِ [Want invites to theft, or covert theft].

And A revulsion of shortness of breathing (اِرْتِدَادُ رَبْوٍ) in the chest of a horse, in consequence of his suppressing such shortness of breathing [so I render مِنْ كَبْوَةٍ يَكْبُوهَا, but this phrase admits of other renderings, as will be seen in art. كبو]: (M, Ḳ:) when he is inflated thereby, one says, أَخْرَجَ سَلَّتَهُ [app. meaning he has manifested his revulsion of shortness of breathing]; and thereupon he is urged to run with vehemence, and made to sweat, and coverings are thrown upon him, and that shortness of breathing (ذٰلِكَ الرَّبْوُ) passes forth. (M.)

[or coll. gen. n.] because it denotes what is made by art, not created, and it should more properly be regarded as of the class of كَوْكَبٌ and كَوْكَبَةٌ [which are syn.] because this is more common than the class of سَفِينَةٌ and سَفِينٌ. (M.)
Also A fault, or defect, in a water-ing-trough or tank, or in a [jar of the kind called] خَابِيَة: (M, Ḳ:) or a breach between the أَنْصَابِ, (Ḳ,) or [more properly] between the نَصَائِب, [i. e. the stones set up, and cemented together with kneaded clay, around the interior,] (M,) of a watering-trough or tank.
