نطو نظر نظف
نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِ, (Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) and نَظَرَهُ, (M, A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) aor. ـُ, (M, A, &c.,) and أَنْطُورٌ is substituted for أَنْظُرُ in the dial. of certain Arabs, (IDrd, TṢ, Ḳ,) or, accord. to Lb, in the Bughyetel-Ámál, the و is here added only [by poetic license,] to make the sound of the ḍammeh full, agreeably with other instances; (TA;) and نَظِرَ إِلَيْهِ, and نَظِرَهُ, aor. ـَ, (A, Ḳ,) the verb being like سَمِعَ accord. to the correct copies of the Ḳ, [and so in the A,] but in one copy of the Ḳ, like ضَرَبَ; (TA;) inf. n. نَظَرٌ, (Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb, Ḳ,) and نَظْرٌ is allowable, as a contraction of the former, (Lth,) and نَظَرَانٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ,) and مَنْظَرٌ (M, A, Ḳ) and مَنْظَرَةٌ and تَنْظارٌ, (M, Ḳ,) [which last is an intensive form; He looked at, or towards, in order to see, him, or it;] he considered, or viewed, him or it with his eye; (Ṣ, A, Ḳ;) with the sight of the eye; (Mṣb;) [i. e. looked at him or it;] as alsoتنظّرهُ↓: (Ḳ:) andانتظرهُ↓ signifies the same as تنظّرهُ and نَظَرَهُ [but app. in another sense, to be mentioned below, and not in the sense explained above, though the latter is implied in the TA; and the same may be meant when it is said that تنظّر↓ is syn. with نَظَرَ, if this assertion, which I find in the M, have been copied without consideration, and be not confirmed by an example]: (TA:) or نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِ signifies he extended, or stretched, or raised, [or directed,] his sight towards him or it, whether he saw him or did not see him. (TA.) The usage of النَّظَرٌ as relating to the sight is most common with the vulgar, but not with persons of distinction, who use it more in another sense, to be explained below. (TA.) You say, نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِ نَظْرَةً حُلْوَةً [He looked at him, or towards him, with one sweet look.] (A.) And نَظَرَ فِى المِنْظَارِ [He looked in the mirror]. (A.) And نَظَرَ فِى الكِتَابِ [He looked into, or inspected, the writing or book], (A, Mṣb,) which is for نَظَرَ المَكْتُوبَ فِى الكِتَابِ [he looked at what was written in the writing or book], or has a different meaning to be explained below. (Mṣb.) And هُوَ يَنْظُرُ حَوْلَهُ [lit., He looks around him; meaning,] he looks much. (A.) [See also نَظَرٌ below.]
نَظَرَتِ الأَرْضُ, (Ṣgh, Ḳ,) and نَظَرَتِ الأَرْضُ بِعَيْنٍ, and بِعَيْنَيْنِ, (A,) ‡ The earth, or land, showed (A, Ṣgh, Ḳ) to the eye (Ṣgh, Ḳ) its plants or herbage. (A, Ṣgh, Ḳ.)
نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِ ‡ It looked towards, meaning faced, him or it. So in the Ḳur, [vii. 197,] وَتَرَاهُمْ يَنْظُرُونَ إِلَيْكَ وَهُمْ لَا يُبْصِرُونَ ‡ Thou seest them look towards thee, i. e., face thee, but they see not; referring to idols, accord. to AʼObeyd. (TA.) And you say, دَارِى يَنْظُرُ إِلَى دَارِ فُلَانٍ ‡ My house faces the house of such a one. (Ṣ.) And نَظَرَ إِلَيْكَ الجَبَلُ ‡ The mountain faced thee: (A:) as in the following ex.: إِذَا أَخَذْتَ فِى طَرِيقِ كَذَا فَنَظَرَ إِلَيْكَ الجَبَلُ فَخُذْ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ أَوْيَسَارِهِ ‡ [When thou takest such a road, and the mountain faces thee, then take thou the way by the right of it or the left of it.] (Ṣ.)
[Hence, perhaps,] نَظَرَ الدَّهْرُ إِلَى بَنِى فُلَانٍ فَأَهْلَكَهُمْ [app. meaning, † Fortune opposed the sons of such a one and destroyed them]: (Ṣ [immediately following there the ex. which immediately precedes it here:]) or نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِمُ الدَّهْرُ signifies ‡ Fortune destroyed them: (M, A:) but (says ISd) I am not certain of this. (M.)
النَّظَرُ also signifies † The turning the mind in various directions in order to perceive a thing [mentally], and the seeing a thing: and sometimes it means † the considering and investigating: [and as a subst., speculation, or intellectual examination:] and sometimes, † the knowledge that results from [speculation or] investigation. (El-Basáïr.) It is mostly used as relating to the intellect by persons of distinction; and as relating to the sight, most commonly by the vulgar. (TA.) [It is said that] when you say نَظَرْتُ إِلَيْهِ, it means only [I looked at, or towards, him or it] with the eye: but when you say نَظَرْتُ فِى الأَمْرِ, it may mean [† I looked into, inspected, examined, or investigated, the thing or affair] by thought and consideration, intellectually, or with the mind: (TA:) [this remark, however, is not altogether correct, as may be seen from what follows: the truth seems to be, that نَظَرَهُ and نَظَرَإِلَيْهِ may be used in the latter of these two senses, though نَظَرَ فِيهِ is most common in this sense.] It is said in the Ḳur, [x. 101,] قُلِ ٱنْظُرُوا مَا ذَا فِى السَّمٰوَاتِ † Say, Consider ye what is in the heavens. (TA.) And you say, نَظَرَ إِلَيْهِ He saw it, and † thought upon it, and endeavoured to understand it, or to know its result. (TA.) [And He looked to it, or at it, or examined it, intellectually; regarded it; had a view to it.] And نَظَرَ فِيهِ † He considered it: (TA:) or thought upon it; namely a writing or book; or when such is the object it may have another meaning, explained before; and an affair: and with this is held to accord the saying وَفِيهِ نَظَرٌ, q. v. infrà, voce نَظَرٌ: (Mṣb:) and ‡ he though upon it, measuring it, or comparing it. (M, Ḳ, TḲ. In the M and Ḳ, only the inf. n., نَظَرَ فِى أَمْوَالِ الأَيْتَامِ, of the verb in this sense is mentioned.) And فَنَطَرَ نَظْرَةً فِى النُّجُومِ † He considered, or examined, [or estimated,] the possessions of the orphans, in order to know them. (Mṣb.) And similar to this is the phrase [in the Ḳur, xxxvii. 86,] النَّظَرُ, meaning, † And he examined the science of the stars: (Mṣb:) [or he took a mental view of the stars, as if to divine from them.] الاِعْتِبَارُ when used unrestrictedly by those who treat of scholastic theology means الاِعْتِبَارُ [† The thinking upon a thing, and endeavouring to understand it, or to know its result; or judging of what is hidden from what is apparent; or reasoning from analogy]. (MF.)
نَظَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ, inf. n. نَظَرٌ, [app. for نَظَرَ فِى مَا بَيْنَهُمْ,] † He judged between them. (Ḳ.)
نَظَرَتْ, (TA,) inf. n. نَظَرٌ, † She practised divination; (Ḳ,* TA;) which is a kind of examination with insight and skill. (TA, from a trad.)
أُنْظُرْ لِى فُلَانًا ‡ [look thou out for such a one for me;] seek thou for me such a one. (A, TA.)
أُنْظُرْنِى † Listen thou to me. (M, Ḳ, TA [in the CK, erroneously, أُنْطِرْنِى.]) The verb [says ISd] has this meaning in the Ḳur, ii. 98. (M.)
أَنَا أَنْظُرُ إِلَى ٱللّٰهِ ثُمَّ إِلَيْكَ [lit., I look to God, then to thee; meaning,] ‡ I look for the bounty of God, then for thy bounty. (A.)
نَظَرَ ٱللّٰهُ إِلَيْهِ ‡ God chose him, and compassionated him, pitied him, or regarded him with mercy; because looking at another is indicative of love, and not doing so is indicative of hatred: (IAth:) or † God bestowed benefits upon him; poured blessings, or favours, upon him: (El-Basáïr:) and نَظَرَ لَهُمْ ‡ he compassionated them, and aided them; (Ṣgh, Ḳ;) and simply, he aided them: (Ḳ,* TA:) and نَظَرَ لَهُ † he accomplished his want, or that which he (another) wanted. (Mṣb.)
نَظَرَهُ is also syn. with إِتْنَظَرَهُ↓, q. v.
Also syn. with أَنْظَرَهُ, q. v.
Also نَظَرَهُ, (Ḳ, TA,) inf. n. نَظْرٌ; (TA;) orنَظَّرَهُ↓; (so in a copy of the M, and in the CK; but from the mention of the inf. n. in the TA, the former seems to be the right reading;) He sold it (a thing, M) with postponement of the payment; he sold it upon credit. (M,* Ḳ,* TA.) See also 4.

أُنْظِرَ بِهِ ‡ [He, or it, was made like]. You say, مَا كَانَ هٰذَا نَظِيرًا لِهٰذَا وَلَقَدْ أُنْظِرَ بِهِ ‡ [This was not like this, but has been made like]. (T, Ḳ:) like as you say, مَا كَانَ خَظِيرًا لَهُ وَلَقَدْ أُخْطِرَ بِهِ. (T.)
