(Spreng. Hist. rei. herb., p. 252: as mentioned by Freytag.)] It is said in a proverb, فِى كُلِّ شَجَرٍ نَارْ وَٱسْتَمْجَدَ المَرْخُ وَٱلْعَفَارْ [In all trees is fire; but the markh and 'afár yield much fire]: (Ṣ:) accord. to AḤn, the meaning is, endeavour to strike fire with gentleness; for that will be sufficient if the زِنَاد be مَرْخ.
