كذ كذب كذبن

1. (كذب)

كَذَبَ, aor. ـِ, inf. n. كَذِبٌ (a strange form of inf. n.; there being, accord. to Ḳz., only fourteen instances of it; as لَعِبٌ, and ضَحِكٌ, &c.; though there are many substantives of this measure; MF) and كِذْبٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ: accord. to Ibn-Es-Seed and others, this latter is formed from the former, by putting the second vowel of the former in the place of the first: MF) and كَذِبَةٌ (L) or كَذْبَةٌ (Ḳ) and كِذْبَهٌ (L, Ḳ) and كِذَابٌ and كِذَّابٌ (Ḳ: but this last, which is also assigned to كَذَبَ in the L, is, accord. to the Ṣ, which refers, for proof, to the Ḳur, ch. lxxviii. 28, one of the inf. ns. of كذّب: and Ks says, that the people of El-Yemen make the inf. n. of فعّل of the measure فِعَّالٌ, while the other Arabs make it تَفْعِيلٌ: TA) and, accord. to some, كُذْبٌ and كَذْبٌ (TA: but the latter of these two, though agreeable with analogy, is unheard: TA): see also كَذِبٌ, below: [He lied; uttered a falsehood; said what was untrue:] he gave an untrue account, or relation, of a thing, whether intentionally or unintentionally. (Mṣb) الكَذِبُ is of five kinds. - First, The relater's changing, or altering, what he hears; and his relating; as from others, what he does not know. This is the kind that renders one criminal, and destroys manly virtue. - Second, The saying what resembles a lie, not meaning anything but the truth. Such is meant in the trad., كَذَبَ إِبْرٰهِيمُ ثَلَاثَ كَذِبَاتٍ Abraham said three sayings resembling lies; he being veracious in the three. - Third, The saying what is untrue by mistake, or unintentionally; making a mistake; erring. This signification is frequent. - Fourth, The finding one's hopes false, or vain. - Fifth, The act of instigating, or inciting. (IAmb.) [See illustrations of these and other significations below; and see more voce صَدَقَ.] [You say] يَكْذِبُكَ مِنْ أَيْنَ جَاءَ [He will lie to thee even as to the place whence he comes.] (L, art. مح, and in many other places, following the similar phrase لَا يَصْدُقُكَ أَثَرَهُ, or أَثَرُهُ.) Lebeed says,

* اِكْذِبِ النَّفْسَ إِذَا حَدَّثْتَهَا *

Lie to the soul (i. e., to thy soul,) when thou talkest to it: i. e., say not to thy soul, Thou wilt not succeed in thine enterprise; for thy doing so will divert thee, or hinder thee, therefrom. A proverb. (Meyd, &c.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A2)

كُذِبَ, pass., He was told a lie; a falsehood; or an untruth. (Ḳ.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A3)

Aboo-Duwád says,

* كَذَبَ العَيْرُ وَإِنْ كَانَ بَرَحْ *

The wild ass hath lied, although he hath passed from right to left: [the doing which is esteemed unlucky:] or, [agreeably with explanations of كَذَبَ given below,] hath become languid, and within [the sportsman's] power, or reach, &c.: or keep to the wild ass, and hunt him, &c. A proverb, applied in the case of a thing that is hoped for, though difficult of attainment. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A4)

كَذَبَتْ andكذّبت↓She (a camel), being covered by the stallion, raised her tail, and then returned without conceiving. (En-Naḍr, Ḳ.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A5)

كَذَبَ is said of other things than men [and animals]: as of lightning, [meaning † It gave a false promise of rain]: of a dream, an opinion, a hope, and a desire, [meaning, in each of these cases, † It proved false]. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A6)

So also كَذَبَتِ العَيْنُThe sense [i. e., the sight] of the eye deceived it. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A7)

كَذَبَ الرَّأْىُ [† The judgment lied]; i. e., he imagined the thing contrary to its real state. (TA.) [See also صَدَقَ ظَنِّى]

verb form: 1.(signification - A8)

كَذَبَتْكَ عَيْنُكَThine eye showed thee what had no reality. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A9)

كَذَبَ لَبَنُ النَّاقَةِ, andكذّب↓, (the latter mentioned in the Ṣ,)The milk of the camel passed away, or failed. (Lḥ.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A10)

كَذَبَ فِى سَيْرِهِ[He (a camel) became slack, or slow, in his pace: see 2]. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A11)

كَذَبَ الحَرُّThe heat abated. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A12)

See also 2. كَذَبَ He found his hopes to be false, or vain. (IAmb.) اُنْظُرْ كَيْفَ كَذَبُوا عَلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ, [Ḳur vi. 24, lit., See how they lied against themselves,] is said to signify see how their hope hath proved false, or vain. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A13)

ظَنُّوا أَنَّهُمْ قَدْ كُذِبُوا, [Ḳur xii. 110,] They (the apostles) thought that they had been disappointed of the fulfilment of the promise made to them. So accord. to one reading. Accord. to another reading, the verb is كُذِّبُوا↓: [in which case, the meaning of the words appears to be, “They knew that they had been pronounced liars” by the people to whom they were sent]. (TA.) There are also two other readings; كَذَّبُوا↓ and كَذَبُوا: accord. to the former, the verb refers to the people to whom the apostles were sent; and ظنّوا means “they knew:” accord. to the latter, the words mean, “They (the people above mentioned) thought that they (the apostles) had broken their promise.” (Jel.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A14)

مَا كَذَبَ الفُؤَادُ مَا رَأَى [The mind did not belie what he saw.] (Ḳur liii. 11.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A15)

كَذَبَتْهُ نَفْسُهُ [His soul lied to him:] his soul made him to desire things, and to conceive hopes, that could scarcely come to pass. (Ḳ.) Hence the soul is called الكَذُوبُ. You say in the contr. case, صَذَقَتْهُ نفسه, and الكَذُوبُ. (TA.) See كَذُوبٌ, and art. صدق.

verb form: 1.(signification - A16)

Hence, كَذَبَ عَلَيْهِ signifies It rendered him active, or brisk; animated him; instigated him; incited him; (Ḳ;) as also كَذَبَهُ. (Z.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A17)

Hence, كَذَبَ and كَذَبَكَ and كَذَبَ عَلَيْكَ have sometimes the same signification, though not always the same government, as عَلَيْكَ, or اِلْزَمْ; Keep to; or take to. The noun following is put in the nom. case accord. to the dial. of El-Yemen; and in the acc. accord. to the dial. of Mudar; or, as some say, is correctly put in the nom. only. (TA.) You say, كَذَبَ عَلَيْكَ كَذَا وَكَذَا, meaning Keep to, or take to, such and such things. It is an extr. phrase. (ISk.) You also say, كَذَبْتُ عَلَيْكَ, meaning Keep thou to me: and كذبتُ عَلَيْكُمْ Keep ye to me. IAạr. cites the following verse of Khidásh Ibn-Zuheyr, [in which he tauntingly compares a people to ticks]:

* كَذَبْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ أَوْ عِدُونِى وَعَلِّلُوا *
* بِىَ الأَرْضَ وَالأَقْوَامَ قِرْدَانَ مَوْظَبَا *

[Keep ye to me: threaten me, and soothe by (the mention of) me the land and the peoples, O ticks of Mowdhab!]: meaning Keep ye to me, and to satirizing me, when ye are on a journey, and traverse the land mentioning me. (TA.) In like manner, يَوْمُ الأَحَدِ والخَمِيسِ كَذَبَاكَ أَوْ يَوْمُ الإِثْنَيْنِ والثَّلَاثَاءِ, in a trad. respecting the proper days for being cupped, signifies Keep thou to Sunday and Thursday, or Monday and Tuesday. (IAth, Z.) The verb is thus used after the manner of a proverb, and is invariable [as to tense], being constantly in the pret. tense, connected [literally or virtually, when explained by عَلَيْكَ followed by the prep. ب, or by إِلْزَمْ,] only with the person addressed, and in the sense of the imperative. كذباك here [lit.] signifies Let them render thee active, or brisk, and animate thee, instigate thee, or incite thee. (Z.). [A trad. of ʼOmar, quoted below, presents another instance to which this signification is said to apply.]

verb form: 1.(signification - A18)

Or كَذَبَ denotes instigation, or incitement, of the person addressed, to keep to the thing that is mentioned; as in the saying of the Arabs, كَذَبَ عَلَيْكَ العَسَلُ, meaning Eat thou honey: but the explanation of this is, (The relinquisher of) honey hath erred [to thee; i. e., in his representation of its evil qualites &c.; which is equivalent to saying, Eat, or keep to, honey]: العَسَلُ being put for تَارِكُ العَسَلِ. [See also 1 in art. عسل.] In like manner, the saying of ʼOmar, كَذَبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الحَجُّ &c., (see below,) signifies Keep ye to the performance of the pilgrimage, &c.: [or (the relinquisher of) the pilgrimage hath erred to thee in his representation of it: therefore it means as above]. (IAmb.) Accord. to IAmb the noun signifying the object of instigation [which may also be called the cause thereof] cannot be rightly put in the acc. case: if so put, the verb is without an agent. (TA.) [But see what is said on this point in the remarks on the trad. of ʼOmar below.]

verb form: 1.(signification - A19)

Or the verb in a case of this kind signifies أَمْكَنَ: thus, كَذَبَكَ الحَجُّ signifies The performance of the pilgrimage is possible, or practicable, to thee: therefore [it means] Perform thou the pilgrimage. (ISh.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A20)

Or أَمْكَنَ is its original signification; and the meaning intended is Keep to; as in the ex. كَذَبَ العَتِيقُ. (Aạl.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A21)

'Antarah, addressing his wife 'Ableh, says; or, accord. to some, the poet is Khuzaz Ibn-Lowdhán;

* كَذَبَ العَتِيقُ وَمَآءُ شَنٍّ بَارِدٌ *
* إِنْ كُنْتِ سَائِلَتِى غَبُوقًا فَٱذْهَبِى *

(TA.) i. e., Keep thou to the eating of dates, and to the cool water of an old, worn-out, skin: if thou ask me for an evening's drink of milk, depart: for I have appropriated the milk to my colt, which is profitable to me, and may preserve me and thee: (L:) العتيق is in the nom. case accord. to the dial. of El-Yemen: but in the acc. accord. to that of Mudar. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A22)

Er-Raḍee [reading العتيقَ] cites this verse as a proof that كَذَبَ, originally a verb, has become a verbal noun, signifying اِلْزَمْ. (TA.) But he is the only one who asserts it to be a verbal noun. (MF.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A23)

Also, Mo'akkir El-Bárikee says,

* وَذُبْيَانِيَّةٍ أُوْصَتْ بَنِيهَا *
* بِأَنْ كَذَبَ القَرَاطِفُ وَالقُرُوفُ *

And many a woman of Dhubyán charged her sons by [saying], Keep to the red garments (اكسية), and the bags (or receptacles) of leather tanned with pomegranate-bark. She charged them to take plenty of these two things as spoil from the tribe of Nemir, if they should prevail over them. (Aboo-ʼObeyd El-Kásim Ibn-Selám.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A24)

كذب is also said to have the same meaning in the words of the trad. كَذَبَ النَّسَّابُونَ [Keep to those skilled in genealogy:] or Regard is to be had to what is said by those skilled in genealogy: another meaning to which is assigned below. (TA.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A25)

It sometimes signifies It is incumbent, or obligatory. So in the following: (a trad. of ʼOmar: TA:) كَذَبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الحَجُّ كَذَبَ عَلَيْكُمُ العُمْرَةُ كَذَبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الجِهَادُ ثلَاثَةُ أَسْفَارٍ كَذَبْنَ عَلَيْكُمْ [The performance of the pilgrimage is incumbent on you: the performance of (the rites called) العمرة is incumbent on you: warring (for the sake of religion) is incumbent on you: three expeditions are incumbent on you]: (Ṣ,* Ḳ:) or كذب, here, is from كَذَبَتْهُ نَفْسُهُ, “his soul made him to desire things, and to conceive hopes, that could scarcely come to pass;” and the meaning is let [the expectation of the reward which will follow] the performance of the pilgrimage render thee active, or brisk, and animate thee, instigate thee, or incite thee, to the act: [and so of the rest of the trad.: but here I should observe, that, for لِيَكْذِبَكَ and لِيُنَشِّطَكَ and يَبْعَثَكَ, in the CK, we should read لِيَكْذِبْكَ &c.:] (Ḳ:)

verb form: 1.(signification - A26)

or, as ISk says, كذب, here, seems to denote instigation, or incitement, meaning عَلَيْكُمْ بِهِ keep ye to it; and is an extr. word with respect to analogy: (Ṣ:)

verb form: 1.(signification - A27)

accord. to Akh., الحجّ is governed in the nom. case by كذب; but as to the meaning, it is in the acc.; because the meaning is a command to perform the pilgrimage; as when you say, أَمْكَنَكَ الصَّيْدُ [“the game hath become within thy power, or reach”], meaning “shoot it,” or “cast at it:” (Ṣ:) he who puts الحجّ in the acc. case, [agreeably with one relation of the trad., TA,] makes عليك [or عليكم] a verbal noun; and in كذب is [implied] the pronoun which refers to الحجّ [and which is the agent of the verb]; (Ḳ;) or the agent is implied in كذب, and explained by what follows it; (Sb;) [so that] the meaning is كَذَبَ الحَجُّ عَلَيْكُمُ الحَجَّ: (Z:) or, [as shown above,] كذب is a verbal n., meaning الْزَمْ, and الحجّ is in the acc. case as governed by it: (Er-Raḍee:) though its being in the acc. case, accord. to some, is altogether unknown: (TA:)

verb form: 1.(signification - A28)

[or the meaning is as stated before on the authority of ISh.:]

verb form: 1.(signification - A29)

or the trad. means كَذَبَ عَلَيْكَ الحَجُّ إِنْ ذُكِرَ أَنَّهُ غَيْرُ كَافٍ هَادِمٍ لِمَا قَبْلَهُ مِنَ الذُّنُوبِ [(the relinguisher of) the pilgrimage hath erred to thee if it have been spoken of (by him) as not sufficient, (and as not) abolishing the sins, or offences, (committed) before it: agreeably with the explanation by IAmb, given above]. (Ḳ.)

verb form: 1.(signification - A30)

كَذَبَ He said what was false unintentionally; committed a mistake, or error. The verb is used in this sense by the people of El-Ḥijáz, and the rest of the Arabs have followed them in so using it. (Towsheeh.)

verb form: 1.(dissociation - B1)

كَذَبَ is also said to signify He spoke truth; so as to bear two contr. meanings: and thus, كَذَبَ النَّسَّابُونَ may signify Those skilled in genealogy have spoken truth: but another explanation of this saying is given in this art. (MF, &c.)

verb form: 1.(dissociation - C1)

كَذَبَتْ عَفَّاقَتُكَ [and the like] Thou brokest wind. (Ṣ in art. عفق.)

2. (كذّب)

كذّبه, inf. n. تَكْذِيبٌ, (and كِذَّابٌ, TA, and تَكْذِبَةٌ [like تَجْرِبَةٌ &c.], occurring in the TA, voce لَهَبَةٌ, &c.) He made, or pronounced, him a liar; an utterer of falsehood; or a sayer of what was untrue: (Ḳ:) he attributed, or ascribed, to him lying, untruth, mendacity, or the speaking untruth: (Mṣb:) and (Mṣb) [accused him of lying:] he gave him the lie; said to him,Thou hast lied,&c. (Ṣ, Mṣb.) See also 4.
