كل كلأ كلب
كَلَأَهُ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) aor. ـَ, inf. n. كَلْءٌ (Ḳ) and كِلَآءَةٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ) and كِلَآءٌ (Ḳ) [but respecting this last see a verse of Jemeel cited below], He (i. e. God, Ṣ) guarded him, or kept him, or kept him safely. (Ṣ, Ḳ.)
إِذْهَبُوا فِى كِلَآءَةِ ٱللّٰهِ Go ye in the safe keeping of God. (Ṣ, TA.)
In the following verse of Jemeel,
* فَكُونِى بِخَيْرٍ فِى كِلَآءِ وَغِبْطَةٍ ** وَإِنْ كُنْتِ قَدْ أَزْمَعْتِ صَرْمِى وَبِغْضَتِى *
[Then be thou in prosperity, in safe keeping (of God), and in happy condition, even if thou have firmly resolved to cut me and to detest me], كِلَآءٌ may be an inf. n.; or it may be pl. of كِلَأءَةٌ; or it may be put for كِلَآءَةٌ, the ة being elided by a necessary poetical licence. (Abu-l- Ḥasan.)
The verb is also used without hemzeh, thus; كَلَاتُ, يَكْلُوكُمْ; and كَلَيْتُ, يَكْلَاكُمْ; in the dial. of Kureysh; inf. n. كِلَايَةٌ: as the pass. part. n. of both, مَكْلُوٌّ is more commonly used than مَكْلِىٌّ, which is correctly used as the pass. part. n. of كَلَيْتُ. (TA.)
كَلَأَ القَوْمَ † He acted as a scout (رَبِيْئَة) for the party, or people. (TA.)

[Here the original signification of postponement or delay is involved: for he who pays in advance for a thing grants a delay in the delivery thereof.] IAar cites the following verse:
* فَمَنْ يُحْسِنْ إِلَيْهِمْ لَا يُكَلَِّئْ ** إِلَى جَازٍ بِذَاكَ وَلَا كَرِيمِ *

اكلأ عُمُرَهُ ‡ He brought his life to its close. (Ḳ.) See 1.
تكلّأ; andكلّأ↓, inf. n. تَكْلِىْءٌ; He bought on credit. [This is the explanation given in the TḲ, and it appears to be correct. It is also there said, that تَكَلَّأْتُهُ signifies أَخَذْتُهُ نَسْيْئَةً, I took it, or bought it, on credit: and كَلَّأْتُ فِى الطَّعَامِ, اخذته بالنّسيئةِ, I took, or bought, the food on credit, but the latter I render differently. (See 2, above.) In the Ḳ we read الكَالِئُ والكُلْأَةُ بِالضَّمِّ النَّسِيْئَةُ والعُرْبُونُ وتَكَلَّأْتُ وكَلَّأْتُ تَكْلِيْئًا أخَذْتُهُ. IbrD thinks that the last word should be أخَّرْتُ “I postponed, or delayed”: but I rather think that it should be أَخَذْتُهَا, meaning أَخَذْتُ نَسِيْئَةً I took, or bought, on credit. in the TA we read, AO says, تَكَلَّأْتُ كُلْأَةً وكَلَّأْتُ تَكْلِيْئًا إِسْتَنْسَأْتُ نَسِيْئَةَ أَىْ أَخَذْتُهُ وَالنَّسِيْئَةُ التَّأْخِيرُ وَكَذٰلِكَ إِسْتَكْلَأْتُ كُلْأَةً: but the words اى اخذته seem to have been added by SM; for in the Ṣ we find, on the authority of AO, تَكَلَّأْتُ أَىْ ٱسْسَنْسَأْتُ نَسِيْئَةً وَكَذٰلِكَ ٱسْتَكْلَأْتُ كُلْأَةً بِالضَّمِّ وَهُوَ مِنَ التَّأْخِيرِ: whence it seems, that تكلّأ, (or تكلّأ كُلْأَةً, andكلّأ↓ كُلْأَةً, see above,) andالستكلأ↓ كُلأَةً, signify He asked for a delay of the period of the payment of a debt.] See 8.
اكتلأ مِنْهُ † He preserved, or guarded, himself from him or it; had a care of, or was cautious of, him or it. (Ṣ, Ḳ.*)
اكتلأت عَيْنى † My eye was wakeful, vigilant, or cautious. (Ṣ.)
اكتلأ كُلْأَةً, andتكلّأها↓, He received a كُلْأَة [i. e., an earnest, or money paid in advance]. (Ḳ.)

The↓ last is also said to signify A land with the pasture of which its camels have been satiated. (TA.)

كَلُوْءٌ العَيْنِ ‡ A man, or a camel, (male or female,) having a strong eye, which sleep does not overcome: (Ḳ:) or, a sleepless, or wakeful, eye. (A.)

كَلَّآءٌ andمُكَلَّأٌ↓ A station of ships, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) near the bank of a river, or near what is called the جُدّ: (TA:) the former is masc. and fem.; or, accord. to Sb, it is of the measure فَعَّالٌ; and therefore masc., and perfectly declinable: (Ṣ:) so called because it keeps the vessels safe (يَكْلَؤُهَا) from the wind: but accord. to Th, it is of the measure فَعْلَآءُ; and therefore fem., [and imperfectly declinable; from كَلَّ;] so called because the wind there becomes slackened: or a place where ships are moored, near the bank of a river: (TA:) or a place sheltered from the wind. (Ṣ.)

(TA; and Ḳ * in art. عرض.)
كَالِئٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ) andكُلْأَةٌ↓ (Ḳ) i. q. نَسِيْئَةٌ, [app. bearing both of the two significations immediately following, and clearly shown in the Ṣ &c. to bear the latter of them: A postponement, or delay, in the time of the payment of a debt, &c. See also نُسْأَةٌ, and كَلَأَ.]
[Also, both words, like نَسِيْئَةٌ, A debt of which the payment is deferred by a creditor to a future period.] (Ṣ, Ḳ.)

[See the Jámiʼ eṣ-Ṣagheer, and Mishkát el-Masábeeh, ii., 21.] What is forbidden by this is, a man's buying a thing on credit for a certain period, and, when the period of payment is come, and he finds not that wherewith to pay the debt, his saying, Sell it to me on credit for a further period, for something additional: whereupon he [thus] sells it to him: (TḲ:) or, a man's paying money for, wheat, or the like, to be given at a certain period, and, when the period comes, the debtor's saying, I have not wheat; etc.; but sell thou it to me on credit for a certain period. (AObeyd, Mṣb.) [See أَجَلٌ.] كَالٍ is also used for كَالِئٌ. (Ṣ.) [See an ex. voce نَاجِزٌ.] The pl. of the latter is كوَالِئُ. (TA.)
