means [The rose being present with us, and the jasmine, and the songstresses] with their chords of gut: or, as some relate it, (and as it is cited in the M,) he said بِقُصَّابِهَا↓, meaning with their musical reeds, or pipes. (Ṣ, O.)
And ‡ The middle of the body; metaphorically applied thereto: so in the saying of Imra-el-Ḳeys, (Ṣ, O, L,) or, accord. to the people of El-Koofeh and El-Basrah, it is falsely ascribed to him, (O,)
* والقُصْبُ مُضْطَمِرٌ وَالمَتْنُ مَلْحُوبُ *
[And the middle of the body slender and lean, and the portion next the back-bone, on either side, smooth, and sloping downwards]. (Ṣ, O, L.)
And † The back. (O, Ḳ. [SM, not having found this in any lexicon but the Ḳ, supposed that الظَّهْرُ might be substituted in it for الخَصْرُ, which is not therein mentioned as a meaning of القُصْبُ.])
قَصَبٌ [a coll. gen. n., signifying Reeds, or canes; and the like, as the culms of corn, &c.; and sometimes signifying a reed, or cane, and the like, as meaning a species thereof;] any plant having (M, A, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ) its stem composed of (Mgh, Mṣb) أَنَابِيب [or internodial portions] (M, A, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ) and [their] كُعُوب [or connecting knots, or joints]; (Mgh, Mṣb;) [i. e. any kind, or species, of plant having a jointed stem;] i. q. أَبَآءٌ [a word comparatively little known]; (Ṣ; [in the O اَناء, a mistranscription;]) and [it is said that] قَصْبَآءُ↓ signifies the same: (Ṣ, O: [but see what follows:]) the n. un. of the former is قَصَبَةٌ↓ (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ) andقَصْبَاةٌ↓ orقَصَبَاةٌ↓: (Ḳ accord. to different copies; the former accord. to the TA: [but each of these I believe to be a mistake forقَصُبْآءَةٌ↓, which is said to be a n. un. of قَصْبَآءُ, and therefore held by some to be syn. with قَصَبَةٌ:]) قَصْبَآءُ↓ [appears, however, to differ somewhat from قَصَب, for it is said that it] signifies an assemblage of قَصَب; (M, Ḳ;) and its n. un. is قَصَبَةٌ↓ andقَصْبَآءَةٌ↓ [like حَلَفَةٌ and حَلْفَآءَةٌ which are both said to be ns. un. of حَلْفَآءٌ; and طَرَفَةٌ and طَرْفَآءَةٌ, said to be ns. un. of طَرْفَآءٌ; the former in each case anomalous]: (M: [see also Ḥam p. 201:]) or, accord. to Sb, قَصْبَآءُ↓ is sing. and pl., (Ṣ, M, Mgh, O,) and so طَرْفَآءُ, (Ṣ, M, O,) and حَلْفَآءُ; (Ṣ, O;) as pl. and as sing. also having the sign of the fem. gender; therefore, when they mean to express the sing. signification, they add the epithet وَاحِدَةٌ; thus, and thus only, distinguishing the sing. meaning from the pl., and making a difference between a word of this class and a noun that denotes a pl. meaning and has not the sign of the fem. gender such as تَمْرٌ and بُسْرٌ, and such as أَرْطًى and عَلْقًى of which the ns. un. are أَرْطَاةٌ and عَلْقَاةٌ: (M:) or, as some say, قَصْبَآءُ↓ signifies many قَصَب growing in a place: (Mgh:) and it signifies also a place in which قَصَب grow: (M, Ḳ:) [or] مَقْصَبَةٌ↓ has this last meaning; (Mgh, Mṣb;) or signifies, like أَرْضٌ قَصِبَةٌ↓, a land having قَصَب. (M, Ḳ.*)
أَحْرَزَ قَصَبَ السَّبْقِ, (Mṣb,) orقَصَبَةَ↓ السَّبْقِ, (TA,) [meaning † He won, or acquired, the canes, or cane, of victory in racing,] is said of the winner in horseracing: they used to set up, in the horse-course, a cane (قَصَبَة,) and he who outstripped plucked it up and took it, in order that he might be known to be the one who outstripped, without contention: this was the origin of the phrase: then, in consequence of frequency of usage, it was applied also to the expeditious, quick, and light, or active: (Mṣb,* TA:) [accord. to the TA, it is a tropical phrase, but perhaps it is so only when used in the latter way:] it is said in a trad. of Saʼeed Ibn-El-Ás, that he measured the horse-course with the cane, making it to be a hundred canes in length, and the cane was stuck upright in the ground at the goal, and he who was first in arriving at it took it, and was entitled to the stake. (O, TA. [See also مُقَصِّبٌ.])
[The قَصَبَة↓ here mentioned as A certain measure of length, used in measuring race-courses, was also used in other cases, in measuring land, and differed in different countries and in different times: accord. to some, it was ten cubits; thus nearly agreeing with our “rod:” (see جَرِيبٌ:) accord. to others, six cubits and a third of a cubit: (see فَدَّانٌ:) the modern Egyptian قَصَبَة, until it was reduced some years ago, was about twelve English feet and a half; its twentyfourth part, called قَبْضَةٌ, being the measure of a man's fist with the thumb erect, or about six inches and a quarter.]
القَصَبُ الفَارِسِىُّ [The Persian reed] is a kind whereof writing-reeds are made: (Mgh, Mṣb:) and another kind thereof is hard and thick; and of this kind are made musical reeds, or pipes; and with it houses, or chambers, are roofed. (Mṣb) One says, قَصَبُ الخطِّ أَنْفَذُ مِنْ قَصَبِ الخَطِّ [meaning Writingreeds are more penetrating, or effective, than the canes of El-Khatt (which are spears); i. e., words wound more than spears]. (A, TA.)
قَصَبُ السُّكَّرِ is well-known [as meaning The sugar-cane]: (Mṣb:) this is of three kinds; white and yellow and black: of the first and second, but not of the third, the juice [of which sugar is made] is expressed; and this expressed juice is called عَسَلُ القَصَبِ. (Mgh.)
قَصَبُ الذَّرِيرَةِ [is Calamus aromaticus; also called قَصَبُ الطِّيبِ]: a species thereof has the joints near together, and breaks into many fragments, or splinters, and the internodial portions thereof are filled with a substance like spiders' webs: when chewed, it has an acrid taste, and it is aromatic (Mgh, Mṣb) when brayed, or powdered; (Mgh;) and inclines to yellowness and whiteness. (Mgh, Mṣb. [See also ذَرِيرَةٌ, in art. ذر.])
قَصَبٌ also signifies † Any round and hollow bone [or rather bones]; (Ṣ, O;) it is pl. [or rather a coll. gen. n.] of which قَصَبَةٌ↓ is the sing. [or n. un,] this latter signifying any bone containing marrow; (M, Ḳ;) thus called by way of comparison [to the reed, or cane]. (M.)

(Mṣb, TA.)
And † The bones and veins of a wing. (MF.)
[And † Quills: thus in the phrase صَارَ الرِّيشُ قَصَبًا, in the Ḳ, voce أَنُوقٌ, meaning The feathers became quills: n. un. قَصَبَةٌ↓: see صَنَمَةٌ.]
And ‡ [The bronchi;] the branches of the windpipe; (M, Ḳ;) and outlets of the breath; (Ḳ;) [i. e.] القَصَبُ, (Ṣ, M, O,) or فَصَبُ الرِّئَةِ, (A, Mṣb,) signifies the ducts (عُرُوق) of the lungs; (Ṣ, A, O, Mṣb;) through which the breath passes forth. (Ṣ, M, A, O, Mṣb.) [See حَلْقٌ.]

So in the saying, in a trad., (O, Ḳ,) related as uttered by Gabriel, (O,) [cited in the Ṣ app. as an ex. of the meaning next preceding this last,] بَشِّرْ خَدِيجَةَ بِبَيْتِ فِى الجَنَّةِ مِنْ قَصَبٍ (IAạr, O, Ḳ) i. e. [Rejoice thou Khadeejeh by the announcement of] a pavilion [in Paradise] of brilliant pearls, &c.: (IAạr, O:) or the meaning is, of hollow pearls [or pearl], spacious, like the lofty palace: (IAth, TA:) or of emerald: (TA voce بَيْتٌ:) and it is said by some to convey an allusion to Khadeejeh's acquiring what is termed قَصَبُ السَّبْقِ [expl. above], because she was the first person, or the first of women, who embraced El-Islám. (MF, TA.)
And ‡ Fine, thin, or delicate, (Ṣ, O,) or soft, (M, Mṣb, Ḳ,) garments, or cloths, of linen: (Ṣ, M, O, Mṣb, Ḳ:) a single one thereof is called قَصَبِىٌّ↓. (M, O, Mṣb, Ḳ.) One says, مَعَ فُلَانٍ قَصَبُ صَنْعَآءَ وَقَصَبُ مِصْرَ ‡ [In the possession of such a one are] قَصَب [meaning the cylindrical, or oblong, hollow pieces] of carnelian [of San'à], and قَصَب [meaning the fine, or soft, garments, or cloths,] of linen [of Egypt].
