شَاحِبٌ A man having his colour, or complexion, altered [for the worse, wan, or haggard], (TA,) or so شَاحِبُ اللَّوْنِ, (A,) in consequence of disease, or travel, or the like: (TA: [see 1:]) and emaciated, or lean; (TA, KL;) as alsoشَحِبٌ↓. (KL.) It is said in a trad., لَا تَلْقَى المُؤْمِنَ إِلَّا شَاحِبًا [Thou wilt not find the believer otherwise than wan, or haggard; or emaciated, or lean]; because شُحُوب is one of the effects of fear, and of paucity of food, and of little enjoying of plentifulness and pleasantness or easiness, and softness or delicacy, of life. (TA.)
It is also applied as an epithet to a sword, meaning Altered in its colour by blood that has dried upon it: used in this sense by the poet Taäbbata-sharrà. (TA.)
