عَيْنٌ is a homonym, applying to various things (Mṣb:) in the Ḳ, forty-seven meanings are assigned to it; but it is said by MF that its meanings exceed a hundred; those occurring in the Ḳur-án are seventeen. (TA.,) By that which is app. its primary application, and which is by many affirmed to be so, (TA,) العَيْنُ signifies The eye: the organ of sight: (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA [in the Ṣ expl. by حَاسَّةُ الرُّؤْيَةِ, evidently used in this sense; in the Mgh, by المُبْصِرَةُ; in the Mṣb and Ḳ, by البَاصِرَةُ; and in a mater place in the Ḳ. by حَاسَّةُ الرُّؤْيَة, app. as meaning the sense of sight;]) also denoted [emphatically] by the term الجَارِحَةُ [i. e. the organ]; (TA;) it is that with which the looker sees: (ISk, TA;) and is of a human being and of any other animal: (TA:) it is of the fem. gender: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) and the pl.

[178 and] 194; (TA.) and pl. pl. أَعْيُنَاتٌ: (Ḳ:) the dim. is عُيَيْنَةٌ↓, (Ṣ.) Hence the saying in a trad. of ʼAlee, قَاسَ عَيْنًا بِبَيْضَةٍ جَعَلَ عَلَيْهَا خُطُوطًا [He measured the reach of an eye by means of an egg upon which he made lines]. (Mgh.) And [hence also] one says, بِعَيْنٍ مَّا أَرَيَنَّكَ [lit. With some eye I will assuredly see thee]: it is said to one whom you send, and require to be quick; and means † pause not for anything, for it is as though I were looking at thee. (TA. [See also art. رأى.]) And لَقِيتُهُ عَيْنَ عُنَّةٍ [I met him so that] I saw him with [or before] my eye, he not seeing me. (Ṣ, TA.) [And رَأَيْتُهُ عَيْنَ عُنَّةٍ or عُنَّةَ, which see in art. عن.

(TA.) And فَعَلْتُ ذَاكَ عَمْدَ عَيْنٍ and عَمْدًا عَلَى عَيْنٍI did that purposely, with seriousness, or earnestness, and certainty: (Ṣ:) or صَنَعَ ذٰلِكَ عَلَى عَيْنٍ and عَلَى عَيْنَيْنِ, (Ḳ, TA,) and عَمْدَ عَيْنٍ and عَمْدَ عَيْنَيْنِ, (Ḳ,) or عَلَى عَمْدِ عَيْنٍ and عَلَى عَمْدِ عَيْنَيْنِ, (TA,)He did that purposely, (Lḥ, Ḳ, TA,) with seriousness, or earnestness, and certainty.

(TA.) أَنْتَ عَلَى عَيْنِى is said in relation to honouring and protecting: (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA:) [accordingly I would render it ‡ Thou art entitled to be honoured and protected by me above my eye: for the eye is esteemed the most excellent of the organs, (as is said in this art. in the TA,) and it is that which most needs protection:] أَنْتَ عَلَى رَأْسِى is said in relation to honouring only. (TA.) And the Arabs say, عَلَى عَيْنِى قَصَدْتُ زَيْدًا, meaning thereby the regarding with solicitude mixed with fear [so that I would render it † As one to be regarded with solicitude mixed with fear above my eye I made Zeyd the object to which my mind was directed]. (TA.) [See another ex. of عَلَى عَيْنِى (in which it cannot be rendered as above) in a later part of this paragraph.] نَعِمَ ٱللّٰهُ بِكَ عَيْنًا [in the CK نَعَّمَ, which is wrong,] means the same as أَنْعَمَهَا. (Ḳ. [See both in art. نعم.]) قُرَّةُ العَيْنِ [signifying مَا قَرَّتْ بِهِ العَيْنُ, as expl. in the M and Ḳ in art. قر, i. e. That by which, or in consequence of which, the eye becomes cool, or refrigerated, or refreshed,, &c.,] is a phrase used as meaning † A man's child or offspring.

I will not leave the thing when I see it ocularly, and seek the trace or vestige, thereof, after its [the thing's] disappearing from me: and the origin of it was the fact that a man saw the slayer of his brother, and when he desired to slay him, he [the latter] said, “I will ransom myself with a hundred she-camels;” whereupon he [the other] said, لَسْتُ أَطْلُبُ أَثَرًا بَعْدَ عَيْنٍ; and slew him: (TA:) it is a prov., thus, or, as some relate it, لَا تَطْلُبْ.

مَآءٌ مَعِينٌ andمَعْيُونٌ↓ (Ṣ, Ḳ:)Water of which one has reached the springs, or sources, by digging: (Ṣ:) or water that is apparent (ظَاهِرٌ, for which the CK has ظاهرٌ), (Ḳ, TA,) seen by the eye, (TA,) running upon the surface of the earth: (Ḳ, TA:) Bedr Ibn-’Amir El-Hudhalee says,

*مَآءٌ يُجِمُّ لِحَافِرٍ مَعْيُونِ↓ *

[meaning Water collecting for a digger of which the springs have been reached by digging]; the last word, it as said, being put by him in the gen. case because of the proximity [to a word in that case, agreeably with a poetic license of which there are many exs.], for by rule it should be مَعْيُونٌ, as it is an epithet relating to مآء: but respecting the measure of مَعِينٌ, which IB derives from عَيْنُ المَآءِ. and explain as meaning having the source apparent, there are differences of opinion; some say that it is an instance of مَفْعُولٌ though not having a verb; and some, that of the measure فَعِيلٌ, from المعْنُ signifying the drawing of water. (TA.) In the saying, إِنْ كَانَتِ البَشَرُ مَعِينًا لَا تُنْزَحُ, meaning [If the well be one] having a running spring, [that will not be entirely exhausted,] معينا is made masc. to accord with the word [بئر, which is masc. in form though fem. by usage]; or it is thus because it is imagined to be of the measure فَعِيل, in the sense of the measure مَفْعُول; or because it is for ذَاتَ مَعِينٍ, i. e. [having] water running upon the surface of the earth. (Mgh.) In the Ḳur xxxvii. 44. [and in like manner in lvi. 18.] مَعِين is used as meaning † Wine running upon the surface of the earth, like rivers of water. (Jel.)
