(Ḳ, TA.) [Hence,] one says, شِفَآءُ العِىِّالسُّؤَالُ ‡ [The remedy of inability is the asking information]. (TA in art. شفى.)
And in like manner one says, عَيَّ عَنْ حُجَّتِهِ, (Mṣb, TA,) and عَيِىَ, aor. and inf. n. as above, i. e. He found not the right way, or manner, of adducing his argument, plea, or evidence. (Mṣb, TA.*)

(TA.) One says, جَآءَ بِالعِىِّ وَالشِّىِّ [app. meaning He exhibited much impotence of expression]; (Ṣ and Ḳ and TA in art. شوى;) using the latter noun as an imitative sequent to the former [for the purpose of corroboration]. (TA in that art.)
And عَيِيتُهُ I was ignorant of it: (Ḳ, TA:) originally meaning I was unable to give information respecting it when asked, by reason of ignorance of it. (TA.) One says, لَا يَعْيَاهُ أَحَدٌ No one will be ignorant of it. (TA.)

أَعْيَا [He was, or became, disabled, or incapacitated]: you say, اعيا عَنِ الجِمَاعِ he was, or became, disabled, or incapacitated, from copulation; syn. عَرِسَ. (IḲṭṭ, TA in art. عرس.)
He was, or became, fatigued, tired, or wearied, (Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA,) in walking, or going, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA,) said of a man (Ṣ) [and of a beast]. You say, أَذَمَّ and اعيا بِهِ بَعِيرُهُ, both meaning the same [i. e. His camel became jaded, and lagged behind with him], aor. يُعْيِى, and some incorporate [one ى into the other, transferring the kesreh of the former ى to the ع], as is done in a verse of El-Hotei-ah. (TA.)
اعياهُ It made him to be without power, or strength, or ability; disabled, or incapacitated, him; (Ṣ,* MA, TA;) said of an affair; (Ṣ, MA;) and [app. in like manner] of God. (Ṣ.) It is also said of a disease, meaning It disabled him, or incapacitated him, from curing it: (Ḳ,* TA:) [or] one says of a difficult disease, for which there is no cure, كَأَنَّهُ أَعْيَا الأَطِبَّآءَ [It is as though it disabled, or incapacitated, the physicians; or frustrated their skill; or baffled them]. (Ṣ, TA.) And a poet says, (namely, ʼAmr Ibn-Hassán, TA)
* فَإِنَّ الكُثْرَ أَعْيَانِى قَدِيمًا ** وَلَمْ أُقْتِرْ لَدُنْ أَنِّى غُلَامُ *
[And, or for, abundance of wealth baffled my attempts to obtain it of old; but I have not been poor from the time of my being a boy]: (Ṣ, TA:) he means, I have been in a middling condition; not very poor, nor able to collect much wealth: but some relate the verse otherwise, saying أَعْنَانِى i. e. “rendered me humble, lowly, or submissive.”

[of عَىٌّ] is أَعْيَآءٌ and [of عَيِىٌّ] أَعْيِيَآءُ; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) Sb says, Yoo has informed us of this; and he says, we have also heard some of the Arabs say أَعْيِيَآءُ [as above] and أَعْيِيَةٌ. (Ṣ.)
