[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]
* غَدَاةَ تَوَلَّيْتُمْ كَانَّ سُيُوفَكُمْ *
↓ذَآنِينُ فِى أَعْنَاقِكُمْ لَمْ تُسَلْسَلِ *
, he has separated the doubled letter: thus the verse is related by IAạr: but by Th,
↓لَمْ تَسَلَّلِ [for تَتَنَسَلَّلِ]
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]
And in another trad., اَللّٰهُمَّ أْسْلُلْ سَخِيمَةَ قَلْبِى (tropical:) [O God, draw forth the rancour of my heart]
: and hence the saying الهَدَايَا تَسُلُّ السَّخَائِمَ وَتَحُلُّ الشَّكَائِمَ (tropical:) [Presents draw away feelings of rancour, and loose, or melt, resistances, or incompliances]
, 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 so
↓اسلّهُ. (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. سَلِ3َ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. سَلٌّ, (TḲ,) said of a man; (TA;) or سَلَّتْ, aor. سَلَ3َ, [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.)

And انسلّ قِيَادُالفَرَسِ مِنْ يَدِهِ [The leading-rope of the horse slipped out or] came forth [from his hand]. (Mgh.)

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.
