(L, from a trad.)
قَصَدَ, aor. ـِ, (L,) inf. n. قَصْدٌ, (M, L, Ḳ,) ‡ It (a road, or way,) was direct, or right; had a direct, or right, tendency.

(Ṣ, L) meaning, It is encumbent on the judge who is come to, any day, when he decides his case, that he do not deviate from what is right, but (بَلْ) act with justice, or equity. (IB, L.) Akh says, He means وَيَنْبَغِى أَنْ يَقْصِدَ; but as he makes an ellipsis, and puts يقصد in the place, syntactically, of ينبغى, he makes it marfooa, because it has the place of that which is [virtually] marfooa: and Fr says, he makes it marfooa because of the disagreement; for as its meaning disagrees with that of the preceding verb, it is made to disagree therefore in desinential syntax. (Ṣ, L.)
قَصَدَ, (Ṣ, L,) aor. ـِ, (L,) inf. n. قَصْدٌ, (Ṣ, L, Ḳ,) [and قَصِدَ, see 7] He broke a stick: (Ṣ, L:) he broke in any way or manner: or he broke in halves: as alsoقصّد↓, inf. n. تَقْصِيدٌ: (L, Ḳ:) [or the latter signifies he broke many things; or broke in many pieces: see 7.]
