(AʼObeyd.) If we read الكلابُ, the meaning is The dogs are upon, or against, the wild oxen: and in like manner, if we read الكرابُ, the meaning is “The turning over of the soil is the work of the oxen:” if الكرابَ, “Leave the turning over of the soil to the oxen.” (MF, from expositions of the Fṣ.)

(TA.) Accord. to El-Mufaddal, it originates from a disease which befalls the standing corn &c., and which is not removed until the sun rises upon it: if cattle eat of it before that, they die: wherefore Moḥammad forbade pasturing by night: but sometimes a camel runs away, and eats of such pasture before sunrise, and dies in consequence: then a dog comes, and eats of its flesh, and becomes mad; and if it bite a man, he also becomes mad, and when he hears the barking of a dog, answers it [by barking]. (TA.)
