[Hence also,] بَلَّ رَحِمَهُ, (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,)) aor. ـُ {يَبْلُلُ}, (T, M,) inf. n. بَلٌّ (with fet-ḥ, TA [in the CK it has kesr]) and بِلَالٌ, (M, Ḳ,)He made close [or he refreshed] his ties of relationship by behaving with goodness and affection and gentleness to his kindred; syn. وَصَلَهَا, (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) and نَدَّاهَا: (T:) for, as some things are conjoined and commixed by moisture, and become disunited by dryness, بَلٌّ is metaphorically used to denote conjunction, as above, and يُبْسٌ to denote the contrary. (TA.) A poet says,

* وَالرِّحْمَ فٱبْلُلْهَا بِخَيْرِ البُلَّانْ *
* فَإِنَهَاٱشْتُقَّتْ مِنِ ٱسْمِ الرَّحْمٰنْ *

[‡ And the ties of relationship, make thou them close, &c. by the best mode, or modes, of doing so; for the name thereof is derived from the name of the Compassionate]: here↓البُلَّان may be a noun in the sing. number, like غُفْرَانٌ, or it may be pl. of بَلَلٌ, which may be either a subst. or an. inf. n., for some inf. ns. have pls., as شُغْلٌ and عَقْلٌ and مَرَضٌ. (M.) And it is said in a trad., بُلُّوا أَرْحَامَكُمْ وَلَوْ بِالسَّلَامِMake ye close [or refresh ye] your ties of relationship, &c., though but, or if only, by salutation; syn. صِلُوهَا, (M,) or نَدُّوهَا بِالصِّلَةِ. (Ṣ.) And hence the saying in another trad., إِذَ ٱسْتَشَنَّ مَا بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ ٱللّٰهِ فَٱبْلُلْهُ بِالإِحْسَانِ إِلَى عِبَادَهِ[When the tie between thee and God wears out, repair thou it, or refresh thou it, by beneficence to his servants]. (TA.) [See also بِلَالٌ.]

بَلَّكَ ٱللّٰهُ بِٱبْنٍ, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) and ٱبْنًا, (M, Ḳ,)May God give thee a son. (Ṣ, M, Ḳ, TA.) Hence, perhaps, the phrase, بُلَّتْ يَدَاكَ بِهِ as meaning † Thou was given it. (Ḥar p. 479.) You say also, بَلَلْتُهُ, meaning † I gave to him. (T.) Andلَا تَبْلُكَ عِنْدِى بَالَّةٌ↓, andبَلَالٌ↓, (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ, [but in the Ḳ عِنْدَنَا, and “or” for “and,” and in the CK لا تَبَلُّكَ,])No bounty, (Ṣ,) no good, or no benefit, shall betide thee from me, (T, Ṣ, Ḳ, TA,) nor will I profit thee, nor believe thee.

بَلْ is a particle of digression: (Mughnee, Ḳ:) or, accord. to Mbr, it denotes emendation, wherever it occurs, in the case of a negation or an affirmation: (T, TA:) or it is a word of emendation, and denoting digression from that which precedes; as also بَنْ, in which the ن is a substitute for the ل, because بل is of frequent occurrence, and بن is rare; or, as IJ says, the latter may be an independent dial. var. (M.) When it is followed by a proposition, the meaning of the digression is either the cancelling of what precedes, as in وَقَالُوا ٱتَّخَذَ ٱلرَّحْمٰنُ وَلَدًا سُبْحَانَهُ بَلْ عِبَادٌ مُكْرَمُونَ [And they said, “The Compassionate hath gotten offspring:” extolled be his freedom from that which is derogatory from his glory! nay, or nay rather, or nay but, they are honoured servants (Ḳur xxi. 26)], or transition from one object of discourse to another, as in قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَنْ تَزَكَّى وَذَكَرَ ٱسْمَ رَبِّهِ فَصَلَّى بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ ٱلْحَيَاةَ ٱلدُّنْيَا [He hath attained felicity who hath purified himself, and celebrated the name of his Lord, and prayed: but ye prefer the present life (Ḳur lxxxvii. 14-16)]: (Mughnee, Ḳ:*) and in all such cases it is an inceptive particle; not a conjunctive. (Mughnee.) When it is followed by a single word, it is a conjunction, (Ṣ,* Mṣb,* Mughnee, Ḳ,) and requires that word to be in the same case as the word before it: (Ṣ:) and if preceded by a command or an affirmation, (Mughnee, Ḳ,) as in اِضْرَبْ زَيْدًا بَلْ عَمْرًا [Beat thou Zeyd: no, ʼAmr], (Mṣb, Mughnee, Ḳ,) and قَامَ زَيْدٌ بَلْ عَمْرٌو [Zeyd stood: no, ʼAmr], (M, Mughnee, Ḳ,) or جَآءَنِى أَخُوكَ بَلْ أَبُوكَ [Thy brother came to me: no, thy father], (Ṣ,) it makes what precedes it to be as though nothing were said respecting it, (Ṣ,* Mṣb,* Mughnee, Ḳ,) making the command or affirmation to relate to what follows it: (Ṣ,* Mṣb,* Mughnee:) [and similar to these cases is the case in which it is preceded by an interrogation: see أَمْ as syn. with this particle:] but when it is preceded by a negation or a prohibition, it is used to confirm the meaning of what precedes it and to assign the contrary of that meaning to what follows it, (Mughnee, Ḳ,) as in مَا قَامَ زَيْدٌ عَمْرٌو [Zeyd stood not, but ʼAmr stood], (Mughnee,) or مَا رَأَيْتُ زَيْدًا بَلْ عَمْرًا, [I saw not Zeyd, but I saw ʼAmr], (Ṣ,) and لَا يَقُمْ زَيْدٌ بَلْ عَمْرٌو [Let not Zeyd stand, but let ʼAmr stand]. (Mughnee.) Mbr and ʼAbd-El-Wárith allow its being used to transfer the meaning of the negation and the prohibition to what follows it; so that, accord. to them, one may say, مَازَيْدٌ قَائِمًا بَلْ قَاعِدًا [as meaning Zeyd is not standing: no, is not sitting], and بَلْ قَاعِدٌ [but is sitting]; the meaning being different [in the two cases]. (Mughnee, Ḳ.*) The Koofees disallow its being used as a conjunction after anything but a negation [so in the Mughnee, but in the Ḳ a prohibition,] or the like thereof; so that one should not say, ضَرَبْتُ زَيْدًا بَلْ إِيَّاكَ [I beat Zeyd: no, thee]. (Mughnee, Ḳ.) Sometimes لَا is added before it, to corroborate the meaning of digression, after an affirmation, as in the saying,

* وَجْهُكَ البَدْرُ لَا بَلِ الشَّمْسُ لَوْ لَمْ *
* يُقْضَ لِلشَّمْسِ كَسْفَةٌ وَأُفُولُ *

[Thy face is the full moon: no, but it would be the sun, were it not that eclipse and setting are appointed to happen to the sun]: and to corroborate what precedes it, after a negation, as in

* وَمَا هَجَرْتُكَ لَا بَلْ زَادَنِى شَغَفًا *
* هَجْرٌ وَبَعْدٌ تَرَاخَى لَا إِلَى أَجَلِ *

[And I did not abandon thee, or have not abandoned thee: no, but abandonment and distance, protracted, not to an appointed period, increased, or have increased, my heart-felt love]. (Mughnee, Ḳ.*)

Root: بل - Entry: بَلْ Signification: A2

Sometimes it is used to denote the passing from one subject to another without cancelling [what precedes it], and is syn. with وَ, as in the saying in the Ḳur [lxxxv. 20 and 21], وَٱللّٰهُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِمْ مُحِيطٌ بَلْ هُوَ قُرْآنٌ مَجِيدٌ [And God from behind them is encompassing: and it is a glorious Ḳur-án: or here it may mean إِنَّ, as in an ex. below]: and to this meaning it is made to accord in the saying, لَهُ عَلَىَّ دِينَارٌ بَلْ دِرْهَمٌ [I owe him a deenár and a dirhem]. (Mṣb.)

Root: بل - Entry: بَلْ Signification: A3

(Akh, Ṣ.)

Root: بل - Entry: بَلْ Signification: A4

Sometimes the Arabs use it in breaking off a saying and commencing another; and thus a man commences with it a citation, or recitation, of verse; in which case, it does not form any part of the first verse, but is a sign of the breaking off, or ending, of what precedes. (Akh, Ṣ.)

Root: بل - Entry: بَلْ Signification: A5

Sometimes it is put in the place of رُبَّ, (Ṣ, Mughnee,) as in the saying of the rájiz,

* بَلْ مَهْمَهٍ قَطَعْتُ بَعْدَ مَهْمَهٍ *

[Many a far-extending desert have I traversed, after a far-extending desert]. (Ṣ: [and a similar ex. is given in the Mughnee.])

Root: بل - Entry: بَلْ Signification: A6

What is deficient in this word [supposing it to be originally of three letters] is unknown; and so in the cases of هَلْ and قَدْ: it may be a final و or ى or they may be originally بَلّ and هَلّ and قَدّ. (Akh, Ṣ.)


[بَلٌّ Moist, or containing moisture: or rather moistened; being, app., an inf. n. used in the sense of a pass. part. n.; like خَلْقٌ in the sense of مَخْلُوقٌ. Hence,] رِيحٌ بَلَّةٌ and↓بَلِيلٌ and↓بَلِيلَةٌ A wind in which is moisture: (Ṣ:) or the last, a wind mixed with feeble rain: (T:) and the second, a wind cold with moisture; (M, Ḳ;) or the same, a wind cold with rain; (A, TA;) the north wind, as though it sprinkled water by reason of its coldness: (TA:) andبَلَلٌ↓ also signifies a cold north wind: (Ibn-ʼAbbád, TA:) بَلِيلٌ is used alike as sing. and pl.: (Ḳ:) it has no pl. (M.)

بِلٌّ Allowable, or lawful; i. e., to be taken, or let alone, or done, or made use of, or possessed: (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ:) so in the dial. of Himyer: (T, Ṣ. M:) or a remedy; (AʼObeyd, T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ;) from the phrase بَلَّ مِنْ مَرَضِهِ [q. v.]: (A' Obeyd, T, Ṣ, M:) or it is an imitative sequent to حِلٌّ, (M, Ḳ,) as some say: (M:) so Aṣ thought until he heard that it was said to be of the dial. of Himyer in the first of the senses explained above: (Ṣ, M:) AʼObeyd and ISk say that it may not be so because it is conjoined with حِلٌّ by وَ: (T:) and AʼObeyd says, We have seldom found an imitative sequent conjoined by و. (TA.) Hence the phrase, هُوَ لَكَ حِلٌّ وَبِلٌّ It is to thee lawful and allowable: or lawful and a remedy. (M, Ḳ.*) And hence the saying of El-ʼAbbás the son of ʼAbd-El-Muttalib, respecting [the well of] Zemzem, هِىَ لِشَارِبٍ حِلٌّ وَبِلٌّ It is to a drinker lawful, &c. (T, Ṣ, M.)
