نكش نكص نكع


1نَكَصَ عَنِ الأَمْرِ

, (A, Ḳ,) [aor. نَكِصَ, and sometimes نَكُصَ, as will be shown below,] inf. n. نُكُوصٌ (Ṣ, IF, A, Mṣb, Ḳ) and نَكُصٌ (A, Ḳ) and مَنْكَصٌ (Ḳ) and نَكَصَانٌ, (MA,) He receded, retired, or drew back from the thing, or affair, refrained, forbore, abstained, or desisted, from it; recoiled from it, shrank from it, or drew back from it in awe or fear; (Ṣ, IF, A, Mṣb, Ḳ;) as also نَكَثَ عَنْهُ. (Aboo-Turáb, TA.) You say also, نَكَصَ عَلَى عَقِبَيْهِ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) or على عَقِبِهِ, (A,) aor. نَكُصَ (Ṣ, Mṣb) and نَكِصَ, (Ṣ,) or the latter only, (Ṣgh, TA,) or the former is allowable, (Zj, TA,) He turned back from a thing to which he had applied himself; (IDrd, Ṣ, * A, * Mṣb, * Ḳ, TA;) meaning a good thing; and sometimes an evil thing; (IDrd, TA;) or meaning particularly a good thing; or extr. with respect to an evil thing. (Ḳ.) [See the Ḳur, xxiii. 68.] Hence انتكص [as syn. with نكص], though we have not heard it. (Mgh.)

حَظُّهُ نَاقِصٌ وَجَدُّهُ نَاكصٌ

(tropical:) [His lot, or portion, is decreasing, or deficient, and his good fortune is receding]. (A, TA.)

مَنْكَصٌ

, (O, B, Ḳ,) like مَقْعَدٌ, (TA,) [in the CK, erroneously, مُنَكَّص,] A place to which one removes, withdraws, or retires afar off, syn. مُتَنَحًّى. (O, B, Ḳ.) El-Aạshà says, praising 'Alkamah Ibn-'Olátheh,
* أَعَلْقَمُ قَدْ جَبَرَتْنِى الأُمُورُ *
* إِلَيْكَ وَمَا كَانَ لِى مَنْكَصُ *
[O 'Alkamah, affairs have compelled me to have recourse to thee, and there was not for me any place to which to retire. (TA.)
