العِتْبَانُ The male hyena: (Kr, TA:) and أُمُّ عِتْبَانَ andأُمُّ عَتَّابِ↓ [the latter of the measure كَتَّان, accord. to the CK and my MṢ. copy of the Ḳ, but in the TA of the measure كتاب, and therefore عِتَابٍ↓,] the female hyena: (Ḳ:) said to be so called because of her limping: but ISd says, I am not sure of this. (TA.)

مَعْتَبَةٌ / مَعْتِبَةٌ

مَعْتَبَةٌ and مَعْتِبَةٌ: see 1, in three places.


مَعْتُوبٌ is for مَعْتُوبٌ عَلَيْهِ [i. e. Reproved, blamed, or censured;, &c.]: Mtr says, it is said to signify مُفْسِدٌ [corrupting, rendering unsound, vitiating,, &c.]; but I am not sure of it. (Ḥar p. 77.)


مُعْتَتَبٌ [is used, agreeably with analogy, in the sense of the inf. n. of اِعْتَتَبَ]. El-Kumeyt says,

*فٱعْتَتَبَ↓ الشَّوْقُ مِنْ فُؤَادِى وَٱلش *
* شِعْرُ إِلَى مَنْ إِلَيْهِ مُعْتَتَبُ *

[And desire turned away from my heart, and my poetry unto him unto whom was its turning]. (Ṣ, O.)


مُسْتَعْتَبٌ is used in the sense of [the inf. n. of اِسْتَعْتَبَ, meaning] اِسْتِرْضَاءٌ: thus in the saying, وَلَا بَعْدَ المَوْتِ مِنْ مُسْتَعْتَبٍ [And after death there is no asking, petitioning, or soliciting, favour of God]: for after death is the abode of retribution, not that of works. (TA from a trad.)
