1. ⇒ سوم ⇒ سام
سَوْمٌ, inf. n. of سَامَ, primarily signifies The going, or going away, engaged, or occupied, in seeking, or in seeking for or after, or in seeking to find and take or to get, a thing: and sometimes it is used as meaning the going, or going away; as when it is said of camels [or the like]: and sometimes, as meaning the seeking, or seeking for or after, or seeking to find and take or to get; as when it relates to selling or buying. (Er-Rághib, TA.)
You say, سَامَتِ المَاشِيَةُ (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, TA) or النَّعَمُ (M) or المَالُ, (Ḳ,) aor. تَسُومُ, (Ṣ, M, Mṣb,) inf. n. سَوْمٌ, (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Mṣb,) The cattle pastured (Ṣ, M, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA) by themselves (Mṣb) where they pleased; and in like manner, الغَنَمُ [the sheep or goats]: or went away at random, or roved, pasturing where they pleased. (TA.)
[Hence, سام, inf n as above, He did as he pleased.] You say, خَلَّيْتُهُ وَسَوْمَهُ I left him to do as he pleased. (Ṣ, M, Ḳ * [In the CK, خَلّاهُ وَسَوَّمَهُ لِمَايُرِيدُهُ is put for خَلَّاهُ وَسَوْمَهُ لِمَا يُرِيدُهُ; and the like is done in one of my copies of the Ṣ. See also 2.])
And سَامَ, (Ṣ,) or سَامَتِ الإِبِلُ, and الرِّيحُ, (M, Ḳ,) or الرِّيَاحُ, (Ṣ,) inf. n. as above, (Ṣ, M,) He, or it, (Ṣ,) or the camels, and the wind, (M, Ḳ,) or the winds, (Ṣ,) passed, went, or went on or along: (Ṣ, M, Ḳ:) or سَوْمٌ signifies the passing,, &c., quickly; one says of a she camel, سَامَت, aor. and inf. n. as above, she passed,, &c., quickly; (Aṣ, TA;) and hence the saying of Dhu-l-Bijádeyn cited in art. عرض, voce تَعَرَّضَ: or the passing,, &c., quickly, with the desire of making a sound in going along. (TA.)
And سَامَتِ الطَّيْرُ عَلَى الشَّىْءِ, (M, Ḳ,) aor. and inf. n. as above, (M,) The birds went, [or hovered,] or circled, round about the thing: (M, Ḳ:) or, as some say, سَوْمٌ signifies any going, [or hovering,] or circling, round about. (M.)
[As mentioned in the first sentence of this art.,] سَوْمٌ is also in selling and buying. (Ṣ.) You say, سام السِّلْعَةَ, (Mgh, Mṣb,) aor. and inf. n. as above, (Mṣb,) He (the seller) offered the commodity, or article of merchandise, (Mgh, Mṣb:) and it is also said of the purchaser, likeاِسْتَامَهَا↓, (Mgh, Mṣb,) meaning he sought to obtain the sale of the commodity, or article of merchandise: and one says also of the seller, and of the purchaser, سام بِالسِّلْعَةِ, meaning he mentioned the price of the commodity [in offering it for sale, and in offering to purchase it]: (Mṣb:) and in like manner, سُمْتُ فُلَانًا سِلْعَتِى, inf. n. as above, I said to such a one, “Wilt thou take [or purchase] my commodity for such a price?” (TA:) and سَامَنِى بِسِلْعَتِهِ he (the seller, Mṣb) mentioned to me the price of his commodity [in offering it for sale]: (Mṣb, TA:) [and, agreeably with these explanations,] Kr says that السَّوْمُ signifies العَرْضُ [i. e. the act of offering,, &c.]: (M, TA:) or سُمْتُ بِالسِّلْعَةِ, inf. n. سَوْمٌ (M, Ḳ) and سُوَامٌ, with damm; (Ḳ, TḲ; [in the former only said to be syn. with سَوْمٌ in selling and buying;]) andسَاوَمْتُ↓, (M, Ḳ,) inf. n. سِوَامٌ; (TA;) andاِسْتَمْتُ↓ بِهَا and عَلَيْهَا; signify غَالَيْتُ [which means I offered the commodity for sale, mentioning its price, and was exorbitant in my demand: and also I purchased the commodity for a dear, or an excessive, price: and both these meanings are app. here intended]: (M, Ḳ, TA:) and in like manner,اِسْتَمْتُهُ↓ السِّلْعَةَ [I offered to him the commodity for sale,, &c.: and I purchased of him the commodity,, &c.]: (TA:) or, as some say, (so in the TA, but in the M and Ḳ “and,”) this last, as alsoاِسْتَمْتُهُ↓ عَلَى السِّلْعَةِ, meansسَأَلْتُهُ سَوْمَهَا↓ [i. e. I asked him the price at which the commodity was to be sold]: (M, Ḳ, TA:) and سَامَنِيهَا, (M,) orسَاوَمَنِيهَا↓, (TA, [but the former is app. the right,]) meansذَكَرَ لِى سَوْمَهَا↓ [i. e. he mentioned to me the price at which it was to be sold]: (M, TA:) you say also,اِسْتَمْتُ↓ عَلَيْهِ بِسِلْعَتِى when you mention the price of the commodity [i. e. it means I mentioned to him the price at which I would sell my commodity]: and you say,اِسْتَامَ↓ مِنِّى سِلْعَتِى when he is the person who offers to thee the price [i. e. it means he offered to me a price for my commodity; or he sought to obtain from me the sale of my commodity by offering a price for it]: (TA:) andاِسْتَامَ↓ عَلَىَّ he contended [by bidding] against me in a sale: (Ṣ,* PṢ:) orاِسْتَامَ↓ عَلَىَّ السِّلْعَةَ, which means استام عَلَى سَوْمِى [i. e. he sought to obtain the sale of the commodity in opposition to me, or to my seeking it]. (Mṣb. [See also 3.]) Hence, [Moḥammad is related to have said,] لَا يَسُومُ الرَّجُلُ عَلَى سَوْمِ أَخِيهِ, (Mgh,) or لايسوم أَحَدُكُمْ على سوم اخيه, (Mṣb,) i. e. [The man, or any one of you,] shall not purchase [in opposition to his brother]: (Mgh, Mṣb:) and it may mean shall not sell; the case being that of a man's offering to the purchaser his commodity for a certain price, and another's then saying, “I have the like thereof for less than this price:” so that the prohibition relates in common to the seller and the buyer: (M:) and the saying is also related otherwise, i. e.لَايَسْتَامُ↓, meaning shall not purchase. (Mgh.) And it is said in a trad., نَهَى عَنِ السَّوْمِ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ الشَّمْسِ, meaning, accord. to Aboo-Is-ḥáḳ,أَنْ يُسَاوِمَ↓ بِسِلْعَتِهِ [i. e. He (Moḥammad) forbade the offering a commodity for sale before the rising of the sun]; because that is a time in which God is to be praised, and one should not be diverted by other occupation: or, he says, it may mean the pasturing of camels; because, before sunrise, when the pasturage is moist with dew, it occasions a fatal disease. (TA.) You say also,سُمْتُكَ بَعِيرَكَ سِيمَةً↓ حَسَنَةً [I have mentioned to thee a good price for thy camel]. (Ṣ.) Andاِسْتَامَ↓ فِيهِ سِيمَةً↓ غَالِيَةً [He demanded for it a dear price]. (TA in art. حثر.) And سَامَهُ بِعَمَلٍ [He made to him an offer of working, mentioning the rate of payment; or bargained, or contracted, with him for work]. (Ḳ in art. عمل. [See also 3.])
The Arabs also say, عَرَضَ عَلَىَّ سَوْمَ عَالَّةٍ [He offered to me in the manner of offering water to camels taking a second draught]; meaning like the saying of the vulgar, عَرْضَ سَابِرِىٍّ: (Ks, TA: [see art. سبر:]) a prov. applied to him who offers to thee that of which thou hast no need. (Sh, TA. [See also art. عل; and see Freytag's Arab. Prov. ii. 84.])
And you say, سَامَهُ الأمْرَ, (M, Ḳ,) aor. as above, (TA,) inf. n. سَوْمٌ, (M, TA,) He imposed upon him, or made him to undertake, the affair, as a task, or in spite of difficulty or trouble or inconvenience; or he ordered, required, or constrained, him to do the thing, it being difficult or troublesome or inconvenient: (M, Ḳ, TA:) or he brought upon him the affair, or event; (Zj, M, Ḳ, TA;) as alsoسَوَّمَهُ↓, (Ḳ,) inf. n. تَسْوِيمٌ: (TA:) or he endeavoured to induce him, or incited him, or made him, to do, or to incur, the affair, or event: (Sh, TA:) it is mostly used in relation to punishment, and evil, (Zj, M, Ḳ, TA,) and wrong-doing: and hence the saying in the Ḳur [ii. 46 and vii. 137 and xiv. 6], يَسُومُونَكُمْ سُوْءَ ٱلْعَذَابِ They bringing upon you evil punishment or torment: (Zj, M, TA:) or seeking, or desiring, for you evil punishment: (Ksh and Bḍ in ii. 46:) or endeavouring to induce you to incur it: (Ksh ibid.:) from سَامَهُ خَسْفًا [expl. by what here follows]. (Ksh and Bḍ ibid.) You say, سُمْتُهُ خَسْفًا I brought upon him خَسْف [i. e. wrong, or wrong treatment, as expl. in the Ksh and by Bḍ ubi suprà]: or I endeavoured to induce him to incur it (أَرَدْتُهُ عَلَيْهِ): (Ṣ:) [see also خَسْفٌ: and سُمْتُهُ خُطَّةَ خَسْفٍ; expl. in art. خط:] and سِيمَ الخَسْفَ He was constrained to incur, or to do, what is termed الخَسْف [meaning abasement or ignominy, or that which was difficult]: (TA:) and سُمْتُهُ ذُلًّا I abased him. (Mṣb.)
سَامَهُ, aor. as above, also signifies He kept, or clave, to it, not quitting it. (M,* TA.)

[Hence,] سوّمهُ means خَلَّاهُ وَسَوْمَهُ, (AZ, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) i. e. [He left him] to do as he pleased; namely, a man. (AZ, Ṣ, Ḳ. [In the CK is a mistranscription in this place, before mentioned: see 1, fourth sentence.]) Whence the prov., عَبْدٌ وَسُوِّمَ A slave, and he has been left to do as he pleases. (TA.)
And سَوَّمْتُ فُلَانًا فِى مَالِى I gave such a one authority to judge, give judgment, pass sentence, or decide judicially, respecting my property. (AO, Ṣ: and in like manner سَوّمهُ فِى مَالِهِ is expl. in the M and Ḳ.) And سَوَّمْتُهُ أَمْرِى I made him to have the ordering and deciding of my affair, or case, to do what he would; like سَوَّفْتُهُ أَمْرِى. (TA in art. سوف.)

And سوّم الفَرَسَ, (M, Ḳ,) inf. n. تَسْوِيمٌ, (Ḳ,) He put a mark upon the horse: (M, Ḳ:) he marked the horse with a piece of silk (بحريرة [perhaps a mistranscription for بِحَدِيدَةٍ i. e. with an iron such as is used for branding]), or with something whereby he should be known. (Lth, TA.) See also 5. [And see 4.]

(Th, TA. [See also 2.]) Hence, in the Ḳur [xvi. 10], فِيهِ تُسِيمُونَ (Ṣ) Upon which ye pasture your beasts. (Jel.)
[And accord. to Freytag, اسام occurs in the Deewán of Jereer as meaning He urged a horse to run: or, as some say, he marked a horse with some sign. See also 2.]

استام السّلْعَةَ:, &c.: see 1, in ten places.
سَامٌ Death: (IAạr, Ṣ, M, Mgh:) and سَامَةٌ [as its n. un.] a death: (IAạr, TA:) but the former [signifies the same in Pers., and] is said to be not Arabic. (TA.) It is related in a trad., respecting the salutation of the Jews, that they used to say, السَّامُ عَلَيْكُمْ [Death come upon you, instead of السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ]; and that he [i. e. Moḥammad] used to reply, عَلَيْكُمْ; accord. to the generality of the relaters, وَعَلَيْكُمْ, but correctly without the و, because the و implies participation: and it is related of ʼÁïsheh that she used to say to them, عَلَيْكُمُ السَّأْمُ وَالذَّأْمُ وَاللَّعْنَةُ, as mentioned in art. سأم: (TA:) the Jews are also related to have said [to the Muslims], عَلَيْكُمُ السَّامُ الدَّامُ meaning المَوْتُ الدَّائِمُ. (TA in art. دوم: see دَائِمٌ in that art.)
Also A kind of tree, of which are made the masts (أَدْقَال [pl. of دَقَلٌ]) of ships: (Kr, M, TA:) accord. to Sh, (TA,) the [tree called] خَيْزُرَان. (Ḳ, TA. [And accord. to some copies of the Ḳ, سَامَةٌ also has this signification, and the signification expl. in the sentence here next following: but accord. to the text of the Ḳ as given in the TA, وَالسَّامَةُ has been erroneously substistituted in the copies above referred to for وَالسَّاقَةُ, which, by reason of what precedes it, means that سَامَةٌ also signifies the same as سَاقَةٌ; and if the former reading were right, the context in the Ḳ would imply that السامة is also the name of a son of Noah, which is incorrect; the name of that son being only سَامٌ.])
Also A [hollow, or cavity, in the ground, such as is called] نُقْرَة, in which water remains, or stagnates, and collects. (Ḳ. [For the verb in this explanation, which is written يُنْقَعُ in the CK and in my MṢ. copy of the Ḳ, I read يَنْقَعُ.])
Also a pl. [or rather coll. gen. n.] of which the sing. [or n. un.] is سَامَةٌ: (M, Ḳ:) the former signifies Veins of gold: and the latter, a single vein thereof: (Ṣ:) or the latter, a vein in a mountain, differing from its [general] nature; (M, Ḳ;) if running from east to west, not failing of its promise to yield silver: (M:) or the former, (M,) or latter, (Ḳ, TA,) gold, and silver; (M, Ḳ, TA;) accord. to Aṣ and IAạr: (M, TA:) or, as some say, an ingot of gold, and of silver: (TA:) or veins of gold, and of silver, in the stone [or rock]: (M, Ḳ:) En-Nábighah El-Jaadee, (M,) or Edh-Dhubyánee, (TA,) uses السام as meaning silver; for he likens thereto a woman's front teeth in respect of their whiteness: (M, TA:) and Aboo-Saʼeed says that silver is called in Pers. سِيمْ, and in Ar. سَامٌ: (TA:) but the meaning most commonly known is gold. (M, TA.) A poet says, (M,) namely, Keys Ibn-El-Khateem, (Ṣ,)
* لَوَ ٱنَّكَ تُلْقِى حَنْظَلًا فَوْقَ بَيْضِنَا ** تَدَحْرَجَ عَنْ ذِى سَامِهِ المُتَقَارِبِ *
(Ṣ, M,) [i. e. If thou threwest colocynths upon our helmets, they would roll along from what is gilded thereof, they being near together: لَوَ ٱنَّكَ is for لَوْ أَنَّكَ: and] the ه in سَامِهِ relates to the بيض [which are described as] gilded therewith: (Ṣ:) the poet is describing the party as being close together in fight, so that colocynths, notwithstanding their smoothness and the evenness of their parts, if they fell upon their heads, would not reach the ground. (Th, Ṣ,* M.)
سَوْمٌ [is originally an inf. n.: see 1, passim:]
[and is also used as a subst. signifying The price of any commodity, or article of merchandise; likeسِيمَةٌ↓ andسُومَةٌ↓]. You say, سَأَلْتُهُ سَوْمَهَا, and ذَكَرَ لِى سَوْمَهَا, referring to a سِلْعَة [or commodity]: see 1, in the former half of the paragraph. Andسُمْتُكَ بَعِيرَكَ سِيمَةً↓ حَسَنَةً, andاِسْتَامَ فِيهِ سِيمَةً↓ غَالِيَةً: see again 1, in the latter half of the paragraph. Andإِنَّهُ لَغَالِى السِّيمَةِ↓ (Ṣ, M, Ḳ) andالسُّومَةِ↓, meaning السَّوْمِ [i. e. Verily it is dear in price]. (M, Ḳ.) سِيمَةٌ↓ andسُومَةٌ↓ are both substs. from سَامَ as used in the phrase سَامَنِى الرَّجُلُ بِسِلْعَتِهِ [and the like]; (TA;) syn. with قِيمَةٌ. (Ḥar p. 435 in explanation of the former.)

(Ṣ.)
سِيمَةٌ: see سَوْمٌ, in five places:
and see also سُومَةٌ, in two places. [For the meanings “pactus” and “pastum missus,” assigned to it by Golius, as from the Ṣ, and copied by Freytag, I find no foundation.]

(Mṣb.) It is said in a trad., فِى سَائِمَةِ الغَنَمِ زَكَاةٌ [In the case of pasturing sheep or goats, there is a poor-rate]. (TA.) And in another trad., السَّائِمَةُ جُبَارٌ, i. e. The beast (دَابَّة) that is sent away into its place of pasture, if it hurt a human being, the injury committed by it is a thing for which no mulct is exacted. (TA.) And it is related in a trad. respecting the emigration to Abyssinia, that the Nejáshee said to those who had emigrated to his country, اُمْكُثُوا فَأَنْتُمْ سُيُومٌ بِأَرَضِى, i. e. [Tarry ye, and ye will be] secure [in my land]: IAth says that thus it is explained: and سيوم is [said to be] an Abyssinian word: it is related also with fet-ḥ to the س: and some say that سُيُومٌ is pl. of سَائِمٌ [like as شُهُودٌ is said to be of شَاهِدٌ]; i. e., ye shall rove (تَسُومُونَ) in my country like the sheep, or goats, pasturing where they please (كَالغَنَمِ السَّائِمَةِ), no one opposing you: (TA:) or, as some relate the trad., it is شُيُومٌ.
