فلز فلس فلسف
فلّسهُ, (Ṣ, A, O, Mṣb, Ḳ,) inf. n. تَفْلِيسٌ, (Ṣ, O, Mṣb, Ḳ,) He (a judge) proclaimed him. (Ṣ, A, O, Mṣb,) or pronounced him, (O, Ḳ,) to be, or to have become, in a state of إِفْلَاس [meaning bankruptcy, or insolvency], (Ṣ, A, O, Ḳ,) or to have become مُفْلِس [meaning bankrupt, or insolvent], and paraded him among the people as such. (Mṣb.)
And [hence] one says, فُلِّسَ مِنْ كُلِّ خَيْرٍ [app. meaning He was pronounced destitute of all good, or of all property]. (TA.)
[فُلِّسَ It was marked with spots differing in colour from the rest, resembling فُلُوس, or small copper coins. (See مُفَلَّسٌ.)] تَفْلِيسُ اللَّوْنِ [used as a subst. properly so termed] signifies Spots in a colour, differing therefrom in colour, resembling فُلُوس. (M.)
افلس, [inf. n. إِفْلَاسٌ,] He became مُفْلِس [which in the common legal acceptation means bankrupt, or insolvent]: (Ṣ:) or he had no property remaining: (O, Ḳ:) as though his دَرَاهِم [or pieces of silver] had become فُلُوس [or small copper coins], (Ṣ, O, Ḳ,) and base money: like as أَخْبَثَ signifies “his companions, or friends, became bad, wicked, or deceitful:” (Ṣ, O:) or he became in such a state that it was said he had not a فَلْس [or small copper coin]; (Ṣ, O, Ḳ;) like as أَقْهَرَ signifies “he became in a state in which to be overcome, or subdued:” (Ṣ, O:) or as though he became in a state in which to be overcome, or subdued: (Mṣb:) or he became a possessor of فُلُوس after he had been a possessor of دَرَاهِم: (M, Mṣb:) but properly, [so in the Mṣb, but I would rather say secondarily, or tropically,] he became reduced from a state of ease, or competence, or richness, to a state of difficulty, or poverty. (Mṣb.)
افلس الرَّجُلَ He sought the man and missed his place. (AA, O.)
فَلْسٌ [A small copper coin;] a thing well known, (M, A, Ḳ,) used in buying and selling; (Mṣb;) the forty-eighth part of a dirhem: [i. e., about half a farthing of our money:] so in Egypt: (Ibn-Fadl-Allah, cited by Es-Suyootee in his Husn el-Mohádarah:) pl. (of pauc., Ṣ, O) أَفْلُسٌ, and (of mult., Ṣ, O) فُلُوسٌ. (Ṣ, M, O, Mṣb, Ḳ.) [The dim. of the former of these pls. is أُفَيْلِسٌ↓: see an ex. below, voce مُفْلِسٌ. The pl. فُلُوس is the common term for Money in Egypt and some other parts in the present day.]
[Hence, Anything resembling a small coin: as]
[A counter of metal:]
[and A scale of a fish: as Ṣgh says,] فُلُوسُ السَّمَكِ signifies what are on the back of the fish, resembling the [coins called] فُلُوس. (O.)
And The seal of the جِزْيَة [or tax paid by the free non-muslim subject of a Muslim government], (T, Ṣ, Ḳ,) which was hung upon the neck, (T, Ṣ, TA,) or upon the throat. (O, Ḳ.)
الفِلْسُ A certain idol which belonged to the tribe of Teiyi, (IDrd, M, O, Ḳ,) in the Time of Ignorance; which ʼAlee, being sent by Moḥammad, destroyed, taking away the two swords, مِخْذَمٌ and رَسُوبٌ, that El-Hárith Ibn-Abee-Shemir had given to it. (O, TA.)
فَلَسٌ, from أَفْلَسَ, [app. signifying Bankruptcy or insolvency: or a state of indigence or destitution: and] lack of obtainment: (Ḳ, TA:) and failure of finding him whom [or that which] one seeks. (TA.) You say, وَقَعَ فِى فَلَسٍ شَدِيدٍ [He fell into a severe state of indigence or destitution]. (TA.) And one says, فِى حُبِّهَا فَلَسٌ, meaning With her love, or the love of her, is no obtainment: and the phrase حُبُّهَا فَلَسٌ, occurring in a verse of El-Mo'attal El-Hudhalee, or of Aboo-Kilábeh, [in which the love thus described is afterwards termed حُبُّ مُفْلِسٌ↓, so that فَلَسٌ is here used for مُفْلِسٌ, or the phrase is elliptical,] Her love, or the love of her, is such that nothing is obtained from it. (O.)
فَلَّاسٌ A seller of فُلُوس, pl. of فَلْسٌ. (M, O, Ḳ.)
مُفْلِسٌ act. part. n. of 4 [q. v.]: pl., (Mṣb,) or quasi-pl. n., (A,) مَفَالِيسُ↓; (A, Mṣb;) like as مفَاطِيرُ is of مُفْطِرٌ, [and مَيَاسِيرُ of مُوسِرٌ;] or pl. ofمِفْلَاسٌ↓ [which signifies the same as مَفْلِسٌ but in an intensive degree]. (A, TA.) [The dim. is مُفَيْلِسٌ↓.] You say, فُلَانٌ مُفَيْلِسٌ مَا نَهُ إِلَّا أُفَيْلِسٌ [Such a one is nearly a bankrupt, or nearly destitute; he has nothing but a few small copper coins].
