شمّر, (Ṣ, A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. تَشْمِيرٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) He raised, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) or tucked up, or contracted, (A,) his garment, (Mṣb, Ḳ,) or his waist-wrapper, (Ṣ,) [or his sleeve,] or his skirts. (A.) One says, شمّر عَنْ سَاقِهِ [He raised, or tucked up, his garment, or waist-wrapper, or skirts, from his shank]. (Ṣ.) [And in like manner, تشمّر↓ signifies He raised, or tucked up, his garment,, &c.: for] one says also, تشمّر عَنْ سَاعِدَيْهِ [He tucked up his sleeves from his fore arms]. (TA.) It is said in a prov., شَمَّرَ ذَيْلًا وَٱدَّرَعَ لَيْلًا i. e. [lit.] He contracted, or drew up, his [or a] skirt [and clad himself with night as with a tunic]: (TA:) or شَمِرْ ذَيْلًا وَٱدَّرِعْ لَيْلًا, meaning ‡ Use thou prudence, or precaution, or good judgment, and journey all the night. (Ṣ and Ḳ in art. درع.)

(L and TA in art. جرد.) Also, (Ḳ,) inf. n. as above; (TA;) andشَمَرَ↓, (Ḳ,) aor. ـُ
Also He contracted a thing; syn. قَلَّصَ; (TA;) [and so, perhaps, شَمَرَ↓; for] الشَّمْرُ signifies تَقْلِيصُ الشَّىْءِ, like التَّشْمِيرُ: (Ḳ:) [or the author of the TA may have misunderstood this explanation in the Ḳ, and the meaning may be it (a thing) contracted, or became contracted; for قَلَّصَ is trans. and also (like قَلَصَ) intrans.: that شمّر has this latter meaning, whether it have also, or have not, the former, is shown by the statement that] one says, شَمَّرَتِ الشَّفَةُ meaning قَلَصَت [i. e. The lip became contracted, or became contracted upwards]: (M in art. قلص:) andتشمّر↓ [in like manner] signifies it (a thing) contracted, or became contracted; syn. تَقَلَّصَ. (TA.)

(M, A.) [See also سَمَّرَ.] And شمّر الإِبِلَ, inf. n. as above; (TA;) andاشمرها↓; (Ḳ;) † He hastened the camels; made them to hasten; syn. أَكْمَشَهَا, [which seems to be either syn. with, or a mistranscription for, كَمَّشَهَا, (see سَمَّرَ,)] and أَعْجَلَهَا. (O, Ḳ, TA.)
And شَمَّرْتُ النَّخْلَ ‡ I cut off the fruit of the palm-trees; syn. صَرَمْتُهُ; (A, TA;) or so شَمَرْتُهُ↓, (Ibn-ʼAbbád, O,) [for] الشَّمْرُ signifies صِرَامُ النَّخْلِ. (Ḳ.)
