فنى فه فهد
فَهِهَ, (Ḳ,) [or perhaps فَهَّ, but originally فَهِهَ], like فَرِحَ, (Ḳ,) sec. pers. فَهِهْتَ, [aor. ـَ,] inf. n. فَهَهٌ (Ṣ, TA) [and app. فَهَّةٌ and فَهَاهَةٌ], He (a man, Ṣ) lacked power or ability. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) And فَهَّ, inf. n. فَهَاهَةٌ and فَهَّةٌ, He made a slip, or committed a fault, from lack of power or ability, &c. (TA.) And فَهَّ فِى خُطْبَتِهِ, and حُجَّتِهِ, He (a man) failed of being thoroughly effective [in his discourse, or oration, or harangue, and his argument, or plea, or evidence]. (TA.)
And فَهِهْتُ الشَّىْءَ I forgot the thing. (ISh, Ḳ,* TA. [In the Ḳ the third pers. is mentioned, as being فَهِهَ; but I think it should be contracted (agreeably with a general rule), as in what here follows.]) And فَهَّ عَنِ الشَّىْءِ, inf. n. فَهٌّ [probably, I think, a mistake for فَهَّةٌ], He forgot the thing. (TA.) See also 4.
افهّهُ He (i. e. God) made him to lack power or ability; as alsoفهّههُ↓. (Ṣ, Ḳ. [The former is omitted in one of my copies of the Ṣ.])
And He (another person) made him to forget. (TA.) One says,خَرَجْتُ لِحَاجَةٍ فَأَفَهَّنِى فُلَانٌ عَنْهَا حَتَّى فَهِهْتُ↓ i. e. [I went forth for a needful affair, and such a one] made me to forget it [so that I did forget it]. (Ṣ, TA. [Or افهّنى may be here better rendered agreeably with the explanation next following.]) Accord. to IDrd, أَفَهَّنِى عَنْ فَحَاجَتِى signifies He busied me so as to divert me [from my needful affair, or the object of my want]. (TA.)
