قِطْمِيرٌ

(Ṣ, Ḳ) and قِطْمَارٌ (Ḳ) The cleft (شَقّ) of a date-stone: (M, Ḳ:) or the integument (قِشْرَة) that is upon it (فِيهَا): (Ḳ:) the thin skin (Ṣ, Ḳ) called فُوفَة, which is upon a date-stone, (Ṣ,) between the stone and the date itself: (Ḳ:) or the white point [i. e. the embryo] in the back of the date-stone, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) from which [when it is sown] the palm-tree grows forth. (Ṣ.)
[Hence,] (assumed tropical:) A small, mean, paltry, contemptible, thing. So the former signifies in the Ḳur, xxxv. 14. One says also مَا أَصَبْتُ مِنْهُ قِطْمِيرًا, meaning, (assumed tropical:) I obtained not of him, or it, anything. (TA.)
