صُؤَابٌ

, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) vulgarly pronounced صُوَابَة, without., (MF, TA,) A nit; i. e. an egg of a louse; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) and an egg of a flea; (Ḳ;) but accord. to some, not applied to the latter unless tropically: (MF, TA:) accord. to IDrst, a young louse: (TA:) or the eggs of the flea and of the louse; as also صُؤَابٌ: (M:) [or,] accord. to the Ṣ and Ḳ, صُؤَابٌ and صِئْبَانٌ, (TA,) the latter of which is vulgarly pronounced صِيبَان, without ء, (MF, TA,) are pls. of صُؤَابَةٌ; but the former of them is a coll. gen. n., of which صُؤَابَةٌ is the n. un.: (TA:) Yaạḳoob has erroneously asserted that one should not say صِئْبَانٌ. (M, TA.)
صُؤَابٌ is also sometimes applied to (assumed tropical:) The small pieces of gold that are taken forth from the dust, or earth, of the mine. (IDrst, TA.) In the following verse, cited by IAạr,
* حَيَّا يَا رَبِّ أَوْجِدْنِى صُؤَابًا *
* فَمَا أَرَى الطَّيَّارَ يُغْنِى شَيَّا *
the poet means, [O my Lord,] cause me to find gold like صُؤَاب [or nits], whole, or sound, not broken into minute parts; [for I see not the طَيَّار to stand in any stead; شَيَّا being for شَيْئًا;] by the طيّار meaning the minutest pieces of gold that the wind blows away. (M, L, TA.)
And [the pl.] صِئْبَانٌ signifies [also] (assumed tropical:) Hoar-frost formed into grains like small pearls. (A'Obeyd, L, TA.) [And drops of fine rain are said to be likened to صِئْبَان: see Ḥam p. 796. See also صَبِىٌّ (in art. صبو), last sentence.]
