بيص بيض بيع

1. ⇒ بيضباض

بَاضَهُ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) first pers. بِضْتُ, (M,) aor. يَبِيضُ, for which one should not say يَبُوضُ, [though it would be agreeable with a general rule respecting verbs denoting surpassingness,] (Ṣ, O,) He surpassed him in whiteness. (Ṣ, M, O, Ḳ.)

بَاضَ السَّحَابُThe clouds rained. (IAạr, O, Ḳ.) A poet says, [using a phrase from which this application of the verb probably originated,]

* بَاضَ النَّعَامُ بِهِ فَنَفَّرَ أَهْلَهُ *
* إِلَّا المُقِيمَ عَلَى الدَّوَى المُتَأَفِّنِ *

(IAạr,) i. e. ‡ The نعام, meaning the نَعَائِم, [or Twentieth Mansion of the Moon,] sent down rain upon it, and so put to flight its occupants, except him who remained incurring the risk of dying from disease, wasting away: [the last word being in the gen. case, by poetic license, because the next before it is in that case; like خَرِبٍ in the phrase هٰذَا جُحْرُ ضَبٍّ خَرِبٍ:] the poet is describing a valley rained upon and in consequence producing herbage; for the rain of the asterism called النعائم is in the hot season, [when that asterism sets aurorally, (see مَنَازِلُ القَمَرِ, in art. نزل,)] whereupon there grows, at the roots of the حَلِىّ, a plant called نَشْر, which is poisonous, killing beasts that eat of it: the verse is explained as above by El-Mohellebee: (IB:) or, as IAạr says, the poet means rain that falls at the نَوْء [by which we are here to understand the setting aurorally] of النعائم; and that when this rain falls, the wise flees and the stupid remains. (O.)

[See also art. فرخ.] بَيْضَةُ البَلَدِ signifies The egg which the ostrich abandons. (Ṣ, M, Ḳ.) And hence the saying, هُوَ أَذَلُّ مِنْ بَيْضَةِ البَلَدِHe is more abject, or vile, than the egg of the ostrich which it abandons (Ṣ, A,* Ḳ) in the desert. (TA.) You say also, هُوَ بَيْضَةُ البَلَدِ in dispraise and in praise. (IAạr, Aboo-Bekr, M.) When said in dispraise, it means ‡ He is like the egg of the ostrich from which the young bird has come forth, and which the male ostrich has cast away, so that men and camels tread upon it: (IAạr, M:) or he is alone, without any to aid him; like the egg from which the male ostrich has arisen, and which he has abandoned as useless: (TA:) or he is an obscure man, or one of no reputation, whose lineage is unknown. (Ḥam p. 250.) And when said in praise, it means ‡ He is like the ostrich's egg in which is the young bird; because the male ostrich in that case protects it: (IAạr, M:) or he is unequalled in nobility; like the egg that is left alone: (M:) or he is a lord, or chief: (IAạr, M:) or he is the unequalled of the بَلَد [or country or the like], to whom others resort, and whose words they accept: (Ḳ:) or he is a celebrated, or wellknown, person.

بَيَاضٌ Whiteness; contr. of سَوَادٌ; in an animal, and in a plant, and in other things; and, accord. to IAạr, in water also; (M;) the colour of that which is termed أَبْيَضُ: (Ṣ, Mṣb,* Ḳ:) they said بَيَاضٌ andبَيَاضَةٌ↓, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) like as they said مَنْزِلٌ and مَنْزِلَةٌ: (Ṣ:) بَيَاضَةٌ being applied to a whiteness in the eye. (M.) You say, هٰذَا أَشَدُّ بَيَاضًا مِنْ كَذَا [This is whiter than such a thing]: (Ṣ, Ḳ:*) but not أَبْيَضُ منْهُ↓: (Ṣ:) the latter is anomalous; (Ḳ;) [like أَسْوَدُ مِنْهُ; q. v.;] but it was said by the people of El-Koofeh, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) who adduced as authority the saying of the rájiz,

* جَارِيَةٌ فِى دِرْعِهَا الفَضْفَاضِ *
* أَبْيَضُ مِنْ أُخْتِ بَنِى إِبَاضِ *

[A damsel in her ample shift, whiter than the sister of the tribe of Benoo-Ibád]: Mbr, however, says that an anomalous verse is no evidence against a rule commonly approved: and as to the saying of another,

* إِذَا الرِّجَالُ شَتَوْا وَٱشْتَدَّ أَكْلُهُمُ *
* فَأَنْتَ أَبْيَضُهُمْ سِرْبَالَ طَبَّاخِ *

[When men experience dearth in winter, and their eating becomes vehement, thou art the whitest of them, or rather the white of them, in respect of cook's clothing, having little or nothing to do with entertaining them], the word in question may be considered as an epithet of the measure أَفْعَلُ that is followed by مِنْ to denote excess: but it is only like the instances in the sayings هُوَ أَحْسَنُهُمْ وَجْهًا and أَكْرَمُهُمْ أَبًا, meaning حَسَنُهُمْ وَجْهًا and كَرِيِمُهُمْ أَبًا; so it is as though he said فَأَنْتَ مُبْيَضُّهُمْ سِرْبَالًا; and as he has prefixed it to a complement which it governs in the gen. case, what follows is in the accus. case as a specificative. (Ṣ.) This latter verse is by Tarafeh, who satirizes therein ʼAmr Ibn-Hind; and is also differently related in respect of the first hemistich, and the first word of the second. (L, TA.)

(M, TA.)

أَبْيَضُ White; contr. of أَسْوَدُ; (A, Ḳ;) having whiteness: (Mṣb:) fem. بَيْضَآءُ: (Mṣb:) pl. بِيضٌ, originally بُيْضٌ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) the damm being converted into kesr in order that the ى may remain unchanged, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) [i. e.] to suit the ى. (Mṣb.) In the phrase أَعْطِنِى أَبْيَضَّهْ, mentioned by Sb, as used by some of the Arabs, meaning أَبْيَضَ, [i. e. Give thou to me a white one,] ه is subjoined as it is in هُنَّهْ for هُنَّ, and the ض is doubled because the letter of declinability cannot have ه subjoined to it; wherefore the letter of declinability is the first ض, and the second is the augmentative, and for this reason it has subjoined to it the ه whereof the purpose is to render plainly perceivable the vowel [which is necessarily added after the doubled ض]: Aboo-ʼAlee says, [app. of the ه,] that it should properly have neither fet-ḥ nor any vowel. (M.)

Root: بيض - Entry: أَبْيَضُ Signification: A2

Applied to a man, &c., it was sometimes used to signify White in complexion: but in this sense they generally used the epithet أَحْمَرُ. (IAth, TA in art. حمر.) They also said, فُلَانٌ أَبْيَضُ الوَجْهِ and فُلَانَةُ بَيْضَآءُ الوَجْهِ, meaning Such a man, and such a woman, is clear, in face, from freckles or the like, and unseemly blackness. (Az, TA.) And they used بِيضَانٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) a pl. of أَبْيَضُ, (TA,) in the contr. of the sense of سُودَانٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) [i. e. as signifying Whites,] applied to men: (Ṣ:) though they applied the appellation أَبُو البَيْضَآءِ to the Abyssinian: (TA in art. عور:) or to the negro: and أَبُو الجَوْنِ to the white man. (ISk.) But accord. to Th, أَبْيَضُ applied to a man signifies only ‡ Pure; free from faults: (IAth, TA in art. حمر:) or, so applied, unsullied in honour, nobility, or estimation; (Az, Ḳ;) free from faults; and generous: and so بَيْضَآءُ applied to a woman. (Az.) [In the lexicons, however, (see, for ex., among countless other instances, an explanation of بَضَّةٌ in the Ṣ,) and in other post-classical works, it is generally used, when thus applied, in its proper sense, of White; or fair in complexion.]
