مُوَاتٌ


مَيِّتٌ

مَيِّتٌ andمَيْتٌ↓ signify the same, [Dead, or dying]: (Zj, Ṣ, Ḳ:) the former is originally مَيْوِتٌ, of the measure فَيْعِلٌ: (Ṣ:) the latter is contracted from the former; and is both masc. and fem.; (Zj, Ṣ;) as is also the former. (Zj.) 'Adee Ibn-Er-Raalà says,

*لَيْسَ مَنْ مَاتَ فَٱسْتَرَاحَ بِمَيْتٍ↓ *
* إِنَّمَا المَيْتُ مَيِّتُ الأَحْيَآءِ *

[He who has died and become at rest is not dead: the dead is only the dead of the living]. (Ṣ, TA.) Orمَيْتٌ↓ signifies One who has died (actually, TA,); and مَيِّتٌ, as alsoمَائِتٌ↓, one who has not yet died, (Ḳ,) but who is near to dying: or, accord. to a verse cited by AA, to Kh, مَيْتٌ is applied to him who is borne to the grave; [i. e., who is dead, or lifeless]; and مَيِّتٌ, to him who [is dying, but] has life in him. (TA.) Fr says, you say of him who has not died,إِنَّهُ مَائِتٌ↓ عَنْ قَلِيلٍ and مَيِّتٌ; but you do not say of him who has diedهذا مَائِتٌ↓: (Ṣ:) but some say, that this is an error, and that مَيِّتٌ is applicable to that which will soon die. Those who assert that ميّت is applicable only to the living adduce the following words of the Ḳur, [xxxix. 31,] إِنَّكَ مَيِّتٌ وَإِنَّهُمْ مَيِّتُونَ: (TA:) i. e. Verily thou wilt die, and verily they will die. (Mṣb.) MF observes, that مَيْتٌ is asserted to be contracted from مَيِّتٌ; and if so, that there can be no difference in their meanings: that the making a difference between them is contrary to analogy; agreeably with which, they should be like هَيْنٌ and هَيِّنٌ, and لَيْنٌ and لَيِّنٌ: and also contrary to what has been heard from the Arabs; for they made no difference in their use of these two words. (TA.) [See also what is said of مَيْتَةٌ, below.] The pls. are أَمْوَاتٌ and مَوْتَى and مَيِّتُونَ and مَيْتُونَ. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) The first of these is pl. of مَيِّتٌ, and consequently of مَيْتٌ, because this latter is contracted from the former: as مَيِّتٌ is of the measure فَيْعِلٌ, and this measure resembles فَاعِلٌ, it has received a form of pl. which is sometimes applicable to the measure فاعل: (Sb:) or اموات is [only] pl. of مَيْتٌ. (Mṣb.) [The second form (which is applied to rational beings, Mṣb,) is also pl. of ميّت and ميت.] The third and fourth are [only] applied to rational beings. (Mṣb.) The fem. epithet is مَيِّتَةٌ and مَيْتَةٌ and مَيِّتٌ (Ḳ, TA) and مَيْتٌ. (TA; and so in some copies of the Ḳ, in the place of مَيِّتٌ.) مَيِّتَةٌ is an epithet applied to a female rational being; [and its pl. is مَيِّتَاتٌ:] مَيْتَةٌ, to a female brute, for the sake of distinction; and its pl. is مَيْتَاتٌ: the latter is contracted because it is more in use than the former epithet applied to a female rational being: (Mṣb:) the pl. of ميّت and ميت as fem. epithets is as above [أَمْوَاتٌ and مَوْتَى]. (TA.)

word: مَيِّتٌ(signification - A2)

مَيْتَةٌ↓ signifies That which has not been slaughtered (AA, Ṣ, Ḳ) [in the manner prescribed by the law, i. e., carrion]: or that of which the life has departed without slaughter: so in the classical language and in the language of practical law: all such is unlawful to be eaten, except fish and locusts, which are lawful by universal consent of the Muslims: (En-Nawawee:) or, in the common acceptation of the language of law, what has died a natural death, or been killed in a state or manner different from that prescribed by the law, either the agent or the animal killed not being such as is so prescribed; as that which is sacrificed to an idol, or slaughtered [by a person] in the state of إِحْرَام, or not by having the throat cut, and that which it is unlawful to eat, such as a dog: (Mṣb:) [and any separated part of an animal of which the flesh is not lawful food: see عَاجٌ.]
