↓اوترهُ; (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ;) He made it, (a number, Mṣb,) sole; or one, and no more: syn. أَفَذَّهُ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) or أَفْرَدَهُ. (Mṣb.) It is said that the latter verb only is used in relation to a number; but both are said to be thus used in the M [as well as in the Mṣb.] (TA.)
[And He made it to be an odd number.] You say, وَتَرَ القَوْمَ, (M, Ḳ,) aor. وَتِرَ, inf. n. وَتْرٌ; (M;) and
↓أَوْتَرَهُمْ; (M, Ḳ;) He made the people, they being an even number, to be an odd number. (M, Ḳ, TA.)

(TA.) You say also, وَتَرَ الصَّلَاةَ, (Mṣb, Ḳ,) and
↓أَوْتَرَهَا, (T, Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) and

↓أَوْتَرَ, (Lḥ, M,) He made the prayer to be such as is termed وِتْر [i. e., to consist of an odd number of rek'as; as is done in the case of a prayer which is performed in the night, consisting of three rek'ahs, and particularly called صَلَاةُ الوِتْرِ]; (Ṣ, * Mṣb, Ḳ; *) he performed prayers of double rek'ahs, two and two together, and then performed the prayer of one rek'ah at the end, making what he performed an odd number: (T:) and
↓أَوْتَرَ, alone, signifies he performed the prayer called الوِتْر [explained above]; (T, M, A, Mgh, Ḳ;) or he performed prayers of [an odd number of rek'ahs,] two and two together, and then a single rek'ah at the end. (TA.) It is said in a trad. إِنَّ ٱللّٰهَ وِتْرٌ يُحِبُّ الوِتْرَ فَأَوْتِرُوا يَا أَهْلَ ٱلْقُرْآنِ [Verily God is one only: He loveth the odd number: therefore perform ye the prayer of an odd number of rek'ahs, O people of the Ḳur-án]. (T.) And in another trad., إِذَا ٱسْتَجْمَرْتَ فَأَوْتِرْ When thou employest stones in the purification termed إِسْتِنْجَآء, use an odd number; (TA;) i. e. use three stones for that purpose, or five, or seven, and not an even number. (T.)
وَتَرَهُ, (T, Ṣ, A, Mgh,) aor. يَتِرُهُ, inf. n. وَتْرٌ (Ṣ,) and وِتْرٌ and تِرَةٌ, (T, Ṣ,) He slew his relation, and so separated him from him, and rendered him solitary: (A, Mgh:) or he slew a person belonging to him, or related to him, without the latter's obtaining revenge, or retaliation, for the blood of the slain: (Ṣ:) or he slew a person belonging to him, or related to him; or took property belonging to him. (T.) It is also doubly trans.: you say, وَتَرَ فُلَانٌ فُلَانًا أَهْلَهُ Such a one committed a crime against such a one by slaying his family; or by taking them away: (T:) and وَتَرَةُ مَالَهُ (T, M, Ḳ) (assumed tropical:) he committed a crime against him by taking away his property: (T:) or (assumed tropical:) he made him to suffer loss or detriment in respect of his property; or he deprived him of it in part, or altogether; syn. نَقَصَهُ إِيَّاهُ: (T, * M, Ḳ:) and وَتَرَهُ حَقَّهُ, (Ṣ, A, Mgh, Mṣb,) aor. as above, (Mṣb,) (tropical:) he made him to suffer loss or detriment in respect of his right or due; or he abridged him, or deprived him, or defrauded him, of it partially, or wholly; syn. نقصهُ. (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb.) It is said in a trad., مَنْ فَاتَتْهُ صَلَاةُ العَصْرِ فَكَأَنَّمَا وُتِرَ أَهْلَهُ وَمَالَهُ (T, M, * Mṣb, * TA) By whomsoever the prayer of the afternoon passeth unobserved, he is as though he had his family slain and his property taken away: or as though he had his family and his property taken away: (T:) or as though he were deprived (نُقِصَ) of his family and his property, (T, M, Mṣb, TA,) and remained alone: (T, TA:) the loss of the family and property is thus likened to the loss of the recompense: اهله and ماله being in the accus. case as objective complements: (Mṣb:) اهله is a second objective complement: for the first is understood, as implied in the verb: but if we read أَهْلُهُ وَمَالُهُ, accord. to another relation, اهله supplies the place of the agent, nothing being understood, and the family and property are the objects to which the loss is made to relate. (TA.) And it is said in another trad., مَنْ جَلَسَ مَجْلِسًا لَمْ يَذْكُرِ ٱللّٰهَ فِيهِ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ تِرَةً (assumed tropical:) He who sitteth in an assembly in which God is not mentioned is obnoxious to detriment, or loss: or, as some say, to a claim of reparation for wrongful conduct. (TA.) And it is said in the Ḳur, [xlvii. 37,] وَلَنَ يَتِرَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ (assumed tropical:) And He will not deprive you of aught of the recompence of your deeds: (Zj, T:) or will not make you to suffer loss in respect of your deeds; like as you say دَخَلْتُ البَيْتَ, meaning دَخَلْتُ فِى البَيْتِ. (Ṣ.)

وتّر القَوْسَ He fastened, bound, firmly, or braced, the string of the bow; expl. by شَدَّ وَتَرَهَا; (Lḥ, M, Ḳ;) as also

↓وَتَرَهَا, (M, TA,) inf. n. وَتْرٌ: (TA:) or

↓وَتَرَهَا, (M, Ḳ,) aor. يَتِرُهَا, (Ḳ,) inf. n. تِرَةٌ, (TA,) he attacked to it its string: (M, Ḳ:) this, accord. to some, is the proper signification of the last. (M.) It is said in a proverb, إِنْبَاضٌ بِغَيْرِ تَوْتِيرٍ [Twanging the bow without bracing the string]: (Ṣ:) or لَا تُعْجِلِ الإِنْبَاضَ قَبْلَ التَّوْتِيرِ [Hasten not the twanging of the bow before the bracing of the string]: alluding to the hastening a thing before its proper time. (M.) [See also art. نبض. And see 2 in arts. جنب and حنب.]

, (A, and so in some copies of the Ḳ,) or
↓أَوْتَرَ, (M, and so in some copies of the Ḳ,) and بين كُتُبِهِ, (M,) and واتر أَخْبَارَهُ, (M, Ḳ; in the latter of which وَاتَرَهُ is put by mistake for وَاتَرَهَا, as is observed in the TA,) and كُتُبَهُ, (M, A, Ḳ,) inf. n. مُوَاتَرَةٌ (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) and وِتَارٌ, (M, Ḳ,) He made his tidings, or narrations, and his writings, or letters, to follow one another: (M, A, Ḳ:) or with some intervals between them; for مواترة between things is only when there is some interval between them; otherwise it is مُدَارَكَةٌ and مُوَاصَلَةٌ: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) or واتر الكُتُبَ signifies he made the writings, or letters, to follow one another nearly, one by one, without ceasing: (Ṣ:) or he made them to follow one another with a small interval between every two: (T:) and وَاتر الخَبَرَ he made the tidings, or narration, to follow one part after another: or, accord. to Aṣ, with a small space between every two portions thereof: from وِتْرٌ in the sense of فَرْدٌ. (T.) You say also وَاتر بَيْنَ مِيَرِهِمْ He made their supplies of wheat to come to them without stopping; time after time. (TA, from a trad.) And it is said in a trad., لَا بَأْسَ أَنْ يُوَاتِرَ قَضَآءَ رَمَضَانَ There will be no harm in his performing the fast of Ramadán at intervals, fasting one day and breaking fast one day: (TA:) مُوَاتَرَةُ الصَّوْمِ is the fasting one day and breaking fast one day, or two; performing it separately: it does not mean المُوَاصَلَةُ, because it is from الوِتْرُ, (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA,) i. e., الفَرْدُ. (TA.)
(tropical:) It (a sinew, or nerve, T, M, A, Ḳ, and a vein, M, TA, not the neck, for العُنُقُ in the Ḳ is a mistake for العِرْقُ, TA) became tense, (M, Ḳ, TA,) like a bow-string. (M, TA.)
It was consecutive: or was so with intervals: (M, A, Ḳ:) or was so with separation, or interruption. (Mṣb.) You say, تواترت الإِبِلُ, and القَطَا, and so of any other things, The camels, and the birds of the kind called القطا, &c., came one near after another, not in a rank. (Lḥ, M.) And تواترت الخَيْلُ The horses came following one another. (Mṣb.) And تواترت الكُتُبُ The writings, or letters, came one near after another, separately. (Ṣ.)
