, aor. مَلُذَ, inf. n. مَلْذٌ, He was quick in coming and going. (M, L.) This is the original signification. (L.)
He (a horse) was quick in his running. (Ḳ, in which only the inf. n. is mentioned.)
He (a-horse) stretched forth his arms, (مَذَّ ضَبْعَيْهِ, Ṣ, M, L, Ḳ,) in running, (Ṣ,) to a degree that he could not exceed, to overtake, (حَتَّى لَا يَجِدَ مَزِيدًا لِلِّحَاقٍ, M, L, Ḳ,) and contracted, or drew in, (حَبَسَ, [perhaps a mistake for خَنَسَ, which may mean either contracted, or threw back,]) his hind legs to a degree that he could not exceed, to overtake, without any confusion [in his motions]. (M, L.)
مَلَذَهُ, aor. مَلُذَ, inf. n. مَلْذٌ and مَلَاذَةٌ, He contented him with courteous and soothing speech, and made him to hear that which rejoiced him, without doing, or performing, anything. (T, L.) Accord. to Aboo-Is-hák, the ذ in this word is a substitute for ث. (M, L.) See مَلَثَهُ.
