(Az, TA.) 2 سَدَّّ see 1, first sentence. b2: [Hence,] سدّد مَلْأَهُ [He filled it up]; namely, a vessel, and a water-ing-trough. (Aboo-Sa'eed, TA in art. خنق.) b3: And سدّد عَلَيْهِمْ كُلَّ شَىْءٍ قَالُوهُ (assumed tropical:) He annulled, in opposing them, everything that they said. (Jábir, as related by Aboo-'Adnán.) A2: سدّدهُ, (S, A, L, Msb, K,) inf. n. تَسْدِيدٌ, (K,) He directed it, (A, * L, Msb, K,) namely, an arrow, (A, Msb,) نَحْوَهُ towards him or it, (A,) or إِلَى الصَّيْدِ towards the game; (Msb;) and شدّدهُ, with ش, is a dial. var. thereof: (Towsheeh, TA:) and [in like manner] his spear; contr. of عَرَضَهُ, (S, Msb,) or عَرَّضَهُ.

A3: See also 1, near the end of the paragraph.4 أَسْدَ3َ see 1, near the beginning: A2: and see also the latter half of the same paragraph, in five places.5 تَسَدَّّ see 1, in the latter half of the paragraph, in three places.7 انسدّ, said of an interstice, or intervening space, It became closed, or closed up; as also ↓ استدّ: (M:) and both, said of a breach, or gap, (M, A,) it became stopped, or stopped up, (M,) or repaired, and made firm or strong.

سَدٌّ and ↓ سُدٌّ Any building, or construction, with which a place is closed or closed up, or stopped or stopped up: (M: [see also سِدَادٌ:]) a dam: (Msb:) a thing intervening, as a separation, a partition, a fence, a barrier, a rampart, or an obstacle, or obstruction, between two other things; (S, Msb, K:) and a mountain: (S, M, K: [in the last it seems that this meaning is restricted to the former word; but if restricted to either, it should be to the latter:]) or, as some say, anything that faces one, or is over against one, and bars, or excludes, (يَسُدُّ,) what is behind it: whence goats are said to be سَدٌّ يُرَى مِنْ وَرَائِهِ الفَقْرُ (assumed tropical:) [a barrier behind which is seen poverty]; meaning that they are not of great utility: (M:) or سَدٌّ signifies what is made by man; and سُدٌّ, what is created by God, (Zj, M, Msb, K,) as a mountain: (Msb:) in the Kur xviii. 92 and 93, and xxxvi. 8, some read with fet-h, and some with damm: (M, TA:) the pl. is أَسْدَادٌ, [a pl. of pauc.,] (A, Msb,) or أَسِدَّةٌ, [also a pl. of pauc.,] and سُدُودٌ, [a pl. of mult.,] the latter of these two agreeable with general analogy, and the former of them anomalous, or, [ISd says,] in my opinion, this (أَسِدَّةٌ) is pl. of سِدَادٌ. (M.) You say, ضُرِبَ بَيْنَهُمَا سَدٌّ and سُدٌّ [A barrier, or an obstacle, was set between them two]: and ضُرِبَتْ بَيْنَهُمَا الأَسْدَادُ [Barriers, or obstacles, were set between them two]. (A.) and ضَرَبَتْ عَلَيْهِ الأَرْضُ بِالأَسْدَادِ (tropical:) [The earth, or land, set barriers, or obstacles, against him]; meaning, the ways became closed, or stopped, against him, and the courses that he should pursue became obscure to him: (K: in the CK ضُرِبَتْ:) the sing. of أَسْدَادٌ [accord. to general analogy] is سُدٌّ. (TA.) b2: [Hence,] the former (سَدٌّ) also signifies, (Fr, S, M, L, K,) or ↓ سِدَادٌ, (A,) or the former and ↓ سَدَادَةٌ, (L,) (tropical:) A fault, or defect, (Fr, S, M, A, &c.,) such as blindness and deafness and dumbness, (S,) or such as closes, or stops, one's mouth, so that he does not speak: (A:) pl. of the first, (S, M, K,) or of the second, (A,) أَسِدَّةٌ, [a pl. of pauc.,] (S, M, A, K,) accord. to analogy سُدُودٌ, (S, M, K,) or أَسُدٌّ [which is a pl. of pauc.]. (M.) You say, ↓ مَا بِهِ سِدَادٌ (tropical:) There is not in him any fault &c.: and فُلَانٌ بَرِىْءٌ مِنَ الأَسِدَّةِ (tropical:) Such a one is free from faults &c. (A.) And تَسُدُّ فَاهُ عَنِ الكَلَامِ ↓ مَا بِفُلَانٍ سَدَادَةٌ (assumed tropical:) There is not in such a one a fault that stops his mouth from speaking. (Aboo-Sa'eed, L.) And لَا تَجْعَلَنَّ بِجَنْبِكَ الأَسِدَّةَ (tropical:) By no means render thou thy bosom contracted so that thou shalt be unable to return an answer, like him who is deaf or dumb. (S, K.) b3: See also سُدٌّ. b4: سدّ [so in the TA, i. e. either سَدٌّ or سُدَّ,] also signifies (assumed tropical:) A she-camel by which the sportsman conceals himself from the game; also called دَرِيْئَةٌ ند دَرِيعَةٌ whence the saying, رَمَاهُ فِى سدِّ نَاقَتِهِ (assumed tropical:) [He shot him, or shot at him, by his she-camel whereby he was concealing himself]. (IAar, TA.) b5: And سَدٌّ, (M,) or سُدٌّ, (O, K,) is also syn. with ظِلٌّ [as meaning (tropical:) Shade, or shadow; or cover, or protection]. (IAar, M, O, K, TA.) A poet cited by IAar says, قَعَدْتُ لَهُ فِى سَدِّ نِقْضٍ مُعَوَّدٍ لِذٰلِكَ فِى صَحْرَآءَ جِذْمٍ دَرِينُهَا (tropical:) [I sat for him, i. e. lay in wait for him, in the shade, or cover, of a camel rendered lean by travel, accustomed to that, in a desert whereof the dry herbage was old]: i. e. I made him a cover, or screen, to me, in order that he might not see me: and by جِذْم he means “ old,” because الجِذْمُ signifies الأَصْلُ, and there is nothing older than the أَصْل; and he uses it as an epithet because it implies the meaning of an epithet. (M.) A2: سَدٌّ also signifies A thing, (S, K,) [i. e.] a [basket such as is called] سَلَّة, (M, TA,) made of twigs, (S, M, K,) and having covers (أَطْبَاق): (S, K: [but this addition in the S and K seems properly to apply to the pl., as will be shown by what follows:]) pl. سِدَادٌ and سُدُودٌ: (M, TA:) or, accord. to Lth, سُدُودٌ signifies [baskets such as are called] سِلَال, [pl. of سَلَّةٌ,] made of twigs, and having covers (أَطْبَاق); one of which is called [not سَدٌّ but] ↓ سَدَّةٌ: and it is said also on other authority that the سَلَّة is called سَدَّةٌ and طَبْلٌ. (L, TA.) سُدٌّ: see the next preceding paragraph, passim. b2: Also (assumed tropical:) A swarm of locusts obstructing the horizon: (M:) or so سُدٌّ مِنْ جَرَادٍ: (TA:) and جَرَادٌ سُدٌّ (tropical:) locusts (S, M, A, K) that have obstructed, (S, K,) or obstructing, (M, A,) the horizon, (S, M, A, K,) by their multitude: (S, A, K:) in which case, سُدٌّ is either a substitute for جَرَادٌ and therefore a substantive, or it is pl. of ↓ سَدُودٌ signifying that which obstructs the horizon and therefore an epithet. (M.) b3: And (tropical:) A black cloud, (AZ, S, K, TA,) that has risen in any tract of the sky: (TA:) or a collection of clouds rising, obstructing the horizon: (M:) pl. سُدُودٌ: (S, M, K:) [or] ↓ سَدٌّ and صَدٌّ, but the former is the more approved, signify (assumed tropical:) a cloud, or collection of clouds, rising high, and appearing like a mountain. (M and L in art. صد.) b4: And A valley: (K:) so called because it becomes closed, or stopped up. (TA.) b5: And A valley containing stones and masses of rock, in which water remains for some time, or a long time: pl. سِدَدَةٌ: (S, L, K:) or you say, أَرْضٌ بِهَا سِدَدَةٌ [a land in which are valleys containing stones and masses of rock, &c.]; and the sing. is ↓ سُدَّةٌ. (L.) b6: and (assumed tropical:) The departure [or loss] of sight: (IAar, M:) from the same word in the first of the senses expl. in the next preceding paragraph. (M.) سِدٌّ: see سَدِيدٌ.

سَدَّةٌ: see سَدٌّ, last sentence.

سُدَّةٌ A certain disease in the nose, (S, M, L, K,) which stops it up, (M, L,) attacking the passage of the breath, (L,) and preventing respiration; (S, L;) as also ↓ سُدَادٌ. (S, M, L, K.) A thing that obstructs the passage of the humours, and of the food, in the body. (KL.) [And Any obstruction in the body: pl. سُدَدٌ.] b2: See also سُدٌّ.

A2: Also [A vestibule, or porch, for shade and shelter, before the door of a house: this is a common signification of the word, and is app. what is meant by its being said that] the سُدَّة is what is before the door of a house: (M, A:) or, as some say, a سَقِيفَة [i. e. roof, or covering, such as projects over the door of a house &c.; or a place roofed over]; (M:) or a ظُلَّة [i. e. roof, or cover-ing, for shade and shelter,] over a door: (Mgh:) or it is [a thing, or place,] like a صُفَّة [or سَقِيفَة] before a بَيْت [or house, or perhaps here meaning tent]: and a ظُلَّة at the door of a house (دَار): (AA, TA:) or, accord. to Aboo-Sa'eed, (TA,) in the language of the Arabs [of the desert] it signifies [a space such as is termed] a فِنَآء pertaining to a tent of hair-cloth and the like; and those who make it to be like a صُفَّة, or like a سَقِيفَة, explain the word accord. to the way in which it is used by the people of the towns and villages: (Msb, TA:) or it signifies the door [itself]: (S, A, Mgh, K:) or it has this meaning also: (Msb:) some thus apply it to the door itself: (A'Obeyd, L:) and the surrounding portico [of the interior court] of the largest, or larger, mosque: (M, TA:) pl. سُدَدٌ. (S, L, Msb, K.) You say, رَأَيْتُهُ قَاعِدًا بِسُدَّةِ بَابِهِ [I saw him sitting in the vestibule of his door]: (S, TA:) and بِسُدَّةِ دَارِهِ [in the vestibule before the door, or at the door, of his house]. (TA.) Abu-d-Dardà

said, مَنْ يَغْشَ سُدَدَ السُّلْطَانِ يَقُمْ وَيَقْعُدْ, (S, L,) or مَنْ يَأْتِ الخ, i. e. [He who comes to the vestibules, or gates, of the Sultán] experiences returns of recent and old griefs, disquieting him so that he is not able to remain at rest, but stands up and sits down: (Mgh in art. قدم:) this he said when he came to the gate of Mo'áwiyeh and did not receive permission to enter. (L.) And it is said in a trad., الشُّعْثُ الرُّؤُوسِ الَّذِينَ لَا تُفْتَحُ لَهُمُ السُّدَدُ, (S, A,) meaning الأَبْوَابُ [i. e. The shaggy, or dishevelled, and dusty, in the heads are those to whom the doors will not be opened]. (A.) b2: Hence, Umm-Selemeh, addressing' Áïsheh, termed her a سُدَّة, i. e. a بَاب [meaning (assumed tropical:) A means of communication[, between the Prophet and his people. (L, from a trad.) A3: Also Palm-sticks, i. e. palmbranches stripped of their leaves, bound together, [side by side,] upon which one sleeps. (M.) سَدَدٌ: see the next paragraph, in four places: b2: and see also سَدِيدٌ.

سَدَادٌ [an inf. n. of the intrans. verb سَدَّ; as also ↓ سَدَدٌ]. [Hence,] one says, إِنَّهُ لَذُو سَدَادٍ Verily he has a faculty of hitting the right thing, or his object or aim, in speaking, and in the managing or disposing of affairs, and in shooting. (TA.) b2: [Hence also, as a subst.,] A thing that is right, syn. صَوَابٌ, (S, A, Msb, K,) and قَصْدٌ, (S,) of what is said and of what is done; (S, A, * Msb, K;) as also ↓ سَدَدٌ, (S, A,) which is a contraction of the former. (S.) One says, قَالَ سَدَادًا مِنَ القَوْلِ He said a right thing [lit. of what is said, i. e., a right saying]; (S, A;) as also ↓ سَدَدًا. (A.) And يُصِيبُ السَّدَادَ He hits the right thing in speech [or action]. (S.) And هُوَ عَلَى سَدَادٍ مِنْ

أَمْرِهِ and ↓ سَدَدٍ [He is following a right course of action in respect of his affair]. (A.) and أَمْرُ فُلَانٍ يَجْرِى عَلَى السَّدَادِ The affair of such a one goes on according to that which is right. (S.) b3: [And hence the saying,] أَتَتْنَا رِيحٌ مِنْ سَدَادِ أَرْضِهِمْ (tropical:) A wind came to us from the direction of their land. (A, TA.) b4: It is also used as an epithet, syn. with سَدِيدٌ, q. v. (L.) b5: and السَّدَادُ [as though meaning The right projecter] is a name that was given to a bow belonging to the Prophet, as ominating the hitting of the object aimed at by that which was shot from it. (TA.) A2: See also سِدَادٌ, in three places.

سُدَادٌ: see سُدَّةٌ, first sentence.

سِدَادٌ A thing with which an interstice, or intervening space, is closed, or closed up: (AO, M, L: [see also سَدٌّ:]) and a thing with which a breach, or gap, (M, A,) is stopped, or stopped up, (M,) or repaired, and made firm or strong: (A:) pl. أَسِدَّةٌ. (M.) Primarily, accord. to ISh, (Meyd, in explanation of a prov. mentioned in what follows,) Somewhat of milk that dries up in the orifice of a she-camel's teat; (Meyd, K;) because it stops up the passage of the milk. (Meyd.) Also A stopper of a bottle (S, * Mgh, * Msb, K, * TA) &c.: (Msb:) in this sense [as well as in those before mentioned] with kesr (S, Mgh, Msb, K) only [to the س]: and so in the sense next following. (S, K.) A body of horse and foot serving as blockaders of the frontier of a hostile country. (S, K, * TA.) b2: سِدَادٌ مِنْ عَوَزٍ and ↓ سَدَادٌ, (ISk, S, M, Msb, K,) but the former is the more chaste, (S,) and it alone is mentioned by most authors in this saying, because it is from سداد as meaning the “ stopper ” of a bottle; (Msb;) and some say that ↓ سَداد, with fet-h, is a corruption; (Msb, K;) expressly disallowed by As and ISh; (Msb;) a prov.; (Meyd;) meaning (tropical:) A thing by which want is supplied, (S, M, Msb, K,) and by which life is preserved; accord. to ISh, if incomplete; and accord. to As, a thing by which somewhat of the entire wants of one's case is supplied. (Msb.) One says also, أَصَبْتُ بِهِ سِدَادًا مِنَ العَيْشِ and ↓ سَدَادًا (tropical:) I attained thereby a thing by which want was supplied; (S, K, * TA;) or a means of sustaining life.
