1 صّمَّ, (S, M, Msb, K,) and صَمِمَ, which is extr., (M, K,) [first pers. of each صَمِمْتُ,] aor. يَصَمُّ, (M, Msb, K,) inf. n. صَمَمٌ (S, * M, Msb, K) and صَمٌّ; (M, K;) and ↓ أَصَمَّ; (S, M, Msb, K;) He was, or became, deaf; (M, * Msb, K; *) [or] he had a stoppage of the ear, and a heaviness of hearing. (M, K.) And صَمَّتِ الأُذُنُ, aor. as above, inf. n. صَمَمٌ, The ear was, or became, deaf. (Msb.) b2: [And He was, or became, as though he heard not.] One says, صَمَّ عَنْهُ (assumed tropical:) [He was as though he heard not him, or it; he was deaf to him, or it]; (M;) and عَنْهُ ↓ أَصَمَّ [meaning the same]. (S, M.) b3: [Hence صَمَّ signifies also (assumed tropical:) He or it, uttered, or made, no sound or noise; like him who, not hearing, returns no reply to a call or question; (assumed tropical:) was dumb, or mute.] One says, صَمَّتْ حَصَاةٌ بِدَمٍ (tropical:) [A pebble made no sound in falling upon the ground by reason of blood]; i. e. the blood was so copious that if one threw a pebble into it no sound would be heard in consequence thereof, (As, S, M, Meyd, K, TA,) because it would not fall upon the ground: (As, S, Meyd:) the saying is a prov. (Meyd.) And hence the saying of Imra-el-Keys, صمِّى ابْنَةَ الجَبَلِ, (S, K,) in the following verse: بُدِّلْتُ مِنْ وَائِلٍ وَكِنْدَةَ عَدْ وَانَ وَفَهْمًا صَمِّى ابْنَةَ الجَبَلِ (assumed tropical:) [I have been given in exchange, for Wáïl and Kindeh,' Adwán and Fahm: make no sound, O pebble: app. meaning that he would shed much blood]: (S, TA: but this verse is omitted in one of my two copies of the S:) or the meaning is, O echo; (S, M, Meyd, K;) so they assert: (AHeyth, TA:) or O calamity; the saying being a prov.; (Meyd, TA;) applied to the case of a severe calamity; as though meaning be dumb, O calamity; said by As to be applied in relation to an event deemed excessively foul or evil: (TA:) or O serpent; (Meyd, TA;) which is said to be the primary meaning: (Meyd:) or O rock. (A Heyth, K, TA. [See also the second of the sentences here following.]) One says also, صَمَّ صَدَاهُ (tropical:) [His echo became dumb, or may his echo become dumb;] meaning he perished, or may he perish. (S, K, TA.) And ↓ صَمِّى صَمَامِ [in the CK erroneously written صُمِّى] meaning (tropical:) Increase, O calamity: (S, K, TA:) or it is applied to a man who brings to pass a calamity, and means be dumb, O calamity: (TA:) or صَمَامِ means calamity, and war; but primarily, the serpent; and this saying, like صَمِّى ابْنَةَ الجَبَلِ, is a prov. said when two parties refuse to make peace, and persist in opposition; meaning answer not the charmer, O serpent, but continue as thou art wont to be. (Meyd.) b4: صَمَمٌ in relation to stones, (Lth, TA,) or stone, (M,) [app. as an inf. n.,] signifies The being hard [and solid (see أَصَمُّ)]; or [as a simple subst.] hardness [and solidity]: (Lth, M, TA:) and in relation to a spear-shaft, the being compact; or compactness. (M.) One says, صَمَّ الحَجَرُ, inf. n. صَمَمٌ, The stone was hard [and solid]. (MA.) And صَمَّتِ الفِتْنَةُ, meaning [The trial, or civil war, &c.,] was, or became, hard, vehement, or severe. (Msb.) A2: صَمَّ القَارُورَةَ, (S, K,) or صَمٌّ رَأْسَ القَارُورَةِ, (M,) aor. صَمُّ, (PS, [in a copy of the M صَمِّ, contr. to a general rule in the case of a trans. verb of this class, and app. a mistranscription,]) inf. n. صَمٌّ, (M,) He stopped the flask or bottle [app. with a صَمَام]: (S, K:) or he stopped the head of the flask or bottle, and bound it; as also ↓ اصمّهُ: (K:) or اصمّ القَارُورَةَ signifies he put a صِمَام to the flask or bottle. (S, K.) b2: And صَمَّ الجُرْحَ, aor. صَمُّ, inf. n. صَمٌّ, He bound the wound, and put upon it a bandage with medicament. (M.) b3: And صَمَّهُ, (S, M, K) inf. n. صَمٌّ, (M,) He struck him, (S, K,) or it, i. e. his head, (M,) with a staff, or stick, (S, M,) and with a stone, (S, M, K,) and with the like thereof. (M.) And صُمَّ, with damm, He was struck vehemently. (IAar, TA.) 2 صمّم, said of a sword, (S, M, K, TA,) accord. to the K, signifies It struck the joint, and cut, or severed, it: or i. q. طَبَّقَ: but this is at variance with what is said by J and other leading authorities; which is as follows: (TA:) it penetrated into the bone, and cut, or severed, it; but when it strikes the joint, and cuts, or severs, it, one says طَبَّقَ; a poet says, describing a sword, يُصَمِّمُ أَحْيَانًا وَحِينًا يُطَبِّقُ [It penetrates into the bone, &c., sometimes, and at one time it strikes the joint, &c.]: (S, TA:) or it passed into the bones: (M:) and ↓ صَمْصَمَ, said of a sword, signifies the same: (M, TA:) or تَصْمِيمٌ signifies a sword's penetrating into that which is struck with it without its causing any sound to be heard; from الصَّمَمُ in the ear. (Ham p. 326.) b2: And hence تَصْمِيمٌ signifies also (tropical:) A man's keeping constantly, or perseveringly, to the thing that he purposes, until he attains [it]. (Ham ubi suprà.) One says, صَمَّمَ عَلَى كَذَا (assumed tropical:) He kept constantly, or perseveringly, to his opinion in respect of such a thing, after his desiring to do it. (IDrd, TA.) b3: And صمّم, (S, Msb, K, TA,) inf. n. تَصْمِيمٌ, (M, K,) (tropical:) He acted, or went on, with penetrative energy, or with sharpness, vigorousness, and effectiveness, (S, M, Msb, K, TA,) in an affair, (M, Msb, K, TA,) and in journeying, (S, K, TA,) in this case said of a horse, (Z, TA,) and in other things; (S;) as also ↓ صَمْصَمَ. (K.) b4: And (tropical:) He bit, and infixed his canine teeth, (S, K, TA,) and did not let go what he bit: (S, TA:) or صمّم فِى عَضَّتِهِ he infixed his teeth [or canine teeth] in his bite. (A, TA.) b5: And صمّم الفَرَسَ العَلَفَ (tropical:) He (a man) enabled the horse to take of the fodder to such a degree that fat and repletion stuffed him. (K, * TA.) b6: And صمّم صَاحِبَهُ الحَدِيثَ (tropical:) He made his companion to retain the narrative, or story, in his memory. (K, * TA.) b7: See also the next paragraph.4 اصمّ, intrans.: see 1, first and fourth sentences.

A2: اصمّهُ He, (God, S, Msb, K,) or it, (a disease, M,) rendered him deaf; (S, * M, * Msb, K; *) [or] caused him to have a stoppage of the ear, and a heaviness of hearing. (M, K.) b2: [Hence,] أَصَمَّنِى الكَلَامَ (assumed tropical:) He, or it, diverted me from hearing the speech; as though he, or it, rendered me deaf. (TA.) b3: [Hence, اصمّهُ signifies also (assumed tropical:) He, or it, caused him to be as though he heard not. b4: And hence, (assumed tropical:) He, or it, caused him, or it, to utter, or make, no sound or noise; like him who, not hearing, returns no reply to a call, or question; to be dumb, or mute.] One says, أَصَمَّ اللّٰهُ صَدَاهُ (tropical:) [May God make his echo to return no sound;] meaning may God destroy him: (TA:) a prov., said in imprecating death upon a man; the صدي being that which returns the like of his voice, or cry, from the mountains &c.; and when a man dies, the صدي hears not from him anything that it should answer him, so that it is as though it were deaf. (Meyd.) [In the vulgar language, ↓ صَمَّمَ likewise signifies (assumed tropical:) He silenced him, reduced him to silence, or closed his mouth: so says De Sacy, in his Chrest. Arabe, sec. ed., iii. 379.] b5: And اصمّهُ [in the CK اَصْمَمَهُ] also signifies He found him to be أَصَمّ [i. e. deaf]. (S, M, K.) One says, نَادَاهُ فَأَصَمَّهُ [He called him, or called to him, and found him to be deaf]. (TA.) And أَصَمَّ دُعَاؤُهُ His call found persons deaf to it, (Th, M, K,) who would not hear his censure. (K.) b6: See also 1, near the end.6 تصامّ He feigned himself to be أَصَمّ [i. e. deaf]. (S.) [It is intrans. and trans.] You say, تصامّ عَنْهُ and تصامّهُ He feigned to him that he was deaf. (M.) And تصامّ عَنِ الحَدِيثِ (M, K) and تصامّهُ (M) He feigned (M, K) to his companion (M) that he was deaf to the narrative, or story. (M, K. *) تَصَامَمْتُهُ means تَصَامَمْتُ مِنْهُ [or عَنْهُ], i. e. I made a show of being deaf [to it], and feigned myself inattentive [to it]. (Ham p.

(K.) b2: Also The فَرْج; perhaps for مَوْضِعُ صِمَامٍ: (Mgh, TA:) so in a trad., in which it is said that الوَطْءُ should be in one صِمَام: but, as some relate it, the word is there with س [i. e. سِمَام].

(Meyd.) And similar is the saying, وَلِى أُذْنٌ عَنِ الفَحْشَآءِ صَمَّا [And I have an ear deaf to that which is foul]. (TA.) [See also Ham p. 636, for another similar ex.] One says likewise, دَعَاهُ دَعْوَةَ الأَصَمِّ (assumed tropical:) He called him [with the call of the deaf, meaning,] with extraordinary force. (TA.) And ضَرَبَهُ ضَرْبَ الأَصَمِّ (tropical:) He beat him [with the beating of the deaf, meaning,] uninterruptedly and excessively; because the deaf, when he does thus, [not hearing any cry,] imagines that he is falling short of what he should do, and therefore will not leave off.

Say what occurs to thee, of falsehood and of lying: my forbearance is deaf, i. e. insensible, to it, though my ear is not deaf]. (M, TA.) صَمَّآءُ is applied to a قَطَاة [or bird of the species termed قَطًا, and may in this case be rendered (assumed tropical:) Small-eared, or dull-eared, being applied thereto] because of the سَكَك [i. e. smallness

&c.] of its ear or because it is deaf when thirsting. (M.) And الأَصَمُّ [as though meaning (tropical:) The deafmute] is an epithet applied to رَجَب, (S, M, Msb, K,) the month thus named, (Msb,) which the people of the Time of Ignorance called شَهْرُ اللّٰهِ الأَصَمُّ, (Kh, S,) because the cry of the caller for aid was not heard in it, (Kh, S, M, Msb, K, *) shouting يَا لَفُلَانٍ and يَا صَبَاحَاهْ, (M, K,) nor the commotion of fight, (Kh, S, Msb,) nor the clash of arms, it being one of the sacred months: (Kh, S:) thus applied it is tropical, like نَائِمٌ in the phrase لَيْلٌ نَائِمٌ; as though, in it, the man were deaf to the sound of arms: (TA:) and in like manner it is also called مُنْصِلُ الأَلِّ. (M. [See also الأَصَبُّ, and مُحَرَّمٌ, and شَهْرٌ.]) b2: And [as that which is without a cavity is generally nonsonorous,] one says حَجَرٌ أَصَمُّ meaning (tropical:) Hard (S, M, Msb, K) and solid (S, Msb, K) stone: (S, &c.:) and صَخْرَةٌ صَمَّآءُ (tropical:) a hard and solid rock: (K, TA:) or this latter signifies (assumed tropical:) a rock in which is no crack nor hole: pl. صُمٌّ. (TA.) And قَنَاةٌ صَمَّآءُ (assumed tropical:) A compact spear-shaft. (M.) b3: الصَّمَّآءُ also signifies (assumed tropical:) The earth, or ground. (M:) and أَرْضٌ صَمَّآءُ (assumed tropical:) Rugged ground: pl. صُمٌّ. (K.) b4: Also [app. (assumed tropical:) The vermiform appendage of the cœcum;] the thin, or slender, extremity of the عفجة: (K: [the last word in this explanation is thus, without any syll. signs, in my MS. copy of the K and in the TA: in the CK, عَفِجَة: but the right reading is evidently عِفَجَة, which is said in the TA, in art. عفج, to be, like أَعْفَاجٌ, a pl. of عَفَجٌ and its dial. vars.: see this last word:] thus called [in my opinion because resembling a meatus auditorius that is closed, and therefore deaf; though said to be so called] because of its hardness. (TA.) b5: And نَاقَةٌ صَمَّآءُ (tropical:) A fat she-camel: (K, TA:) and, (K,) or as some say, (TA,) one that has just conceived, or become pregnant. (K, TA.) b6: اِشْتِمَالُ الصَّمَّآءِ, (S, Msb, K, TA,) which is forbidden in a trad., (TA,) is (assumed tropical:) The covering oneself with his garment, like [as is done in the case of] the شِمْلَة of the Arabs of the desert with their [garments called] أَكْسِيَة [pl. of كِسَآء]; (A'Obeyd, S;) i. e. the turning the كِسَآء, from the direction of one's right, upon his left arm and the part between his left shoulderjoint and neck, and then turning it a second time, from behind him, upon his right arm and the part between his right shoulder-joint and neck, so as to cover them both: (A'Obeyd, S, K:) or the wrapping oneself with the garment without making to it a place from which to put forth the hand: (Msb:) or, (K,) as the lawyers explain it, (A'Obeyd, S,) it is the wrapping one's body and arms with one garment, not having upon him another, and then raising it [in the K, as is said in the TA, يَضَعُهُ is erroneously put for يَرْفَعُهُ] on one of its sides, and putting it upon his shoulder, so that his pudendum appears from it: (A'Obeyd, S, K:) [but] with the Arabs, لِبْسَةُ الصَّمَّآءِ means the covering one's whole body with his garment, and not raising a side from which to put forth his hand: (Mgh:) when you say, of a man, اِشْتَمَلَ الصَّمَّآءَ, it is as though you said, اِشْتَمَلَ الشِّمْلَةَ الصَّمَّآءَ; for الصَّمَّآء is a sort of اِشْتِمَال. (S. [See also اِشْتَمَلَ, and الشِّمْلَةُ الصَّمَّآءُ, in art. شمل.]) b7: جَذْرٌ أَصَمُّ (assumed tropical:) A surd, or an irrational, root, in arithmetic; which is known only to God, accord. to a saying of 'Áïsheh: opposed to جَذْرٌ نَاطِقٌ.

(TA in art. صمت.) مُصَمِّمٌ A sword that passes into the bones: (M:) or that penetrates into that which is struck with it. (TA.) b2: See also صِمْصِمٌ. b3: And (assumed tropical:) A strong camel: so says Aboo-' Amr Esh-Sheybánee: and he cites the saying, حَمَّلْتُ أَثْقَالِى مُصَمِّمَاتِهَا [as meaning I loaded their strong camels with my burdens]: (TA:) or the مُصَمِّمَات, here mentioned, are the camels that do not utter a grumbling cry; patient of travel. (Ham p. 791.)
