سهم سهو سو

1. (سهو)

سَهَا عَنْهُ, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) or فِيهِ, (Ḳ,) aor. يَسْهُو, inf. n. سَهْوٌ (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ) and سُهُوٌّ, (M, Ḳ,) He was, or became, unmindful, forgetful, neglectful, or heedless, of it, or inadvertent to it; (Ṣ, Mṣb;) namely, a thing; syn. غَفَلَ عَنْهُ: (Ṣ,* Mṣb:) or he forgot it, or neglected it, (نَسِيَهُ,) and was, or became, unmindful, forgetful, &c., of it, or inadvertent to it, (غَفَلَ عَنْهُ,) his mind adverting to another thing or affair or case; (Ḳ, TA;) thus expl. in the M and T; so that السَّهْوُ and الغَفْلَةُ and النِّسْيَانُ are made to be one [in signification]; (TA;) but accord. to Esh-Shiháb, السَّهْوُ is a slight غَفْلَة [or unmindfulness &c.] of that which is within the scope of the retentive faculty, such as when one's attention is roused by the least rousing thereof; whereas النسيان denotes its passing away from the memory entirely; though all are used in one sense by a careless reliance upon the understanding of the reader or hearer: in the Mṣb it is said that a distinction is made between السَّاهِى and النَّاسِى by the latter's being applied to him who, when he is reminded, remembers, and the former's being applied to him who is in the contrary case: accord. to IAth, سَهَافِى الشَّىْءِ means he neglected, or omitted, the thing unknowingly; and سَهَا عَنْهُ, he neglected, or omitted, it knowingly: or, as some say, السَّهْوُ is the doing wrong from unmindfulness (عَنْ غَفْلَة); as when an insane person reviles another, which is pardonable; and as when one drinks wine and then some unpleasing action proceeds from him unintentionally, which is punishable. (TA.) One says, سَهَافِى الصَّلَاةِ, and عَنْهَا, i. q. غَفَلَ [He was, or became, unmindful in prayer, and of it]. (TA.)

One says, فَعَلَهُ سَهْوًا رَهْوًا He did it voluntarily, without its being asked, or demanded; (Ḳ, TA;) and without constraint: (TA:) or quietly, or calmly, without being hard, or difficult.
