1 عَطَفَ, (S, Mgh, O, Msb, K,) aor. عَطِفَ, (O, K,) inf. n. عُطُوفٌ, (Mgh, Msb,) or عَطْفٌ, (O, TA,) He, or it, (a man, S, O, or a thing, Msb,) inclined; (S, Mgh, O, Msb, K;) or bent: (MF, TA:) and ↓ انعطف also has the former meaning, (Mgh, Msb, * TA,) as in the saying انعطف نَحْوَهُ i. e. he, or it, inclined towards him, or it; (TA;) [or the latter meaning;] or it became inclined, (Msb,) or became bent, (S, * O, Msb, K,) or both, (TA,) as quasi-pass. of عَطَفَهُ; (S, O, Msb, TA;) and ↓ تعطّف likewise has both of these meanings, as quasi-pass. of عطّفهُ, or [signifies it became much inclined and bent, for] عطّف is with teshdeed to denote muchness. (TA.) b2: Hence, (MF, TA,) عَطَفَ عَلَيْهِ, (S, Mgh, MA, O, K,) [aor. as above,] inf. n. عَطْفٌ; (MA, MF, TA;) and عليه ↓ تعطّف; (S, MA, O, K;) [and ↓ انعطف عليه;] (tropical:) He was, or became, favourably inclined towards him; or affectionate, or kind, to him; (MA, PS;) he regarded him, or treated him, with mercy or pity or compassion; (MA, Mgh;) because in mercy, or pity, or compassion, is an inclining towards its object; (Mgh;) i. q. أَشْفَقَ عَلَيْهِ; (S, O, K;) and وَصَلَهُ, and بَرَّهُ. (TA in explanation of the second.) And عَطَفَتْ عَلَى

وَلَدِهَا, aor. as above, inf. n. عَطْفٌ, said of a she camel, (assumed tropical:) She became favourably inclined, or compassionate, towards her young one, and yielded her milk; (Msb;) and عَلَيْهِ ↓ تعطّفت [signifies the same, or she was made to incline to him, or to affect him]. (M in art. رأم, &c) b3: عَطَفَ عَلَيْهِ also signifies He turned, or returned, against him: (S:) or he charged, or made an assault or attack, upon him, [in battle,] and turned, or returned, against him: (O, K:) or he returned against him with that which he disliked, or hated: and to him with that which he desired. (L, referring to a verse of Aboo-Wejzeh Es-Saadee cited in art. حين, q. v.) b4: And عَطَفَ, aor. as above, (TA,) inf. n. عَطْفٌ, (K, TA,) signifies also He turned away, or back. (K, * TA.) b5: And [hence,] عَطَفَ عَنْهُ signifies (tropical:) the contr. of عَطَفَ عَلَيْهِ in the first of the senses assigned to this latter above [i. e. it signifies (tropical:) He was, or became, averse from him; or disaffected, or unkind, to him; or unmerciful, unpitying, or uncompassionate, to him]. (MF, TA.) b6: عُطُوفٌ and عَطْفٌ [as intrans. inf. ns.] also signify A sheep's, or goat's, bending the neck, not by reason of an ailment.

(TA.) One says of a she-gazelle, تَعْطِفُ جِيدَهَا إِذَا رَبَضَتْ [She inclines, or bends, her neck when she lies down on her breast]. (O, K.) And one says, عَطَفَ رَأْسَ بَعِيرِهِ إِلَيْهِ He inclined, or bent, or turned aside, the head of his camel towards him; inf. n. عَطْفٌ: (TA:) and نَاقَتَهُ ↓ استعطف He turned aside his she-camel (عَطَفَهَا) by pulling her nose-rein in order that she should incline her head. (Mgh.) And عَطَفَ الوِسَادَةَ, (S, O, K,) aor. and inf. n. as above; (O;) and ↓ عَطَّفَهَا; (K;) He bent, or doubled, or folded, the pillow, or cushion, (S, O, K,) when leaning with his elbow upon it. (O.) b2: And [hence] one says, عَطَفَ اللّٰهُ بِقَلْبِ السُّلْطَانِ عَلى رِعَيَّتهِ (assumed tropical:) God made the heart of the Sultán, or ruling power, to be favourably inclined towards his subjects; to regard them, or treat them, with mercy. (TA.) And عَطَفَتْكَ عَلَيْهِمُ الرَّحِمُ (assumed tropical:) [The feeling of relationship, or consanguinity, or the sympathy of blood, caused, or hath caused, thee to be favourably inclined towards them; &c.]. (Ham p. 765.) And عَطَفَ النَّاقَةَ عَلَى وَلَدِهَا (assumed tropical:) [He made the she-camel to incline to, or affect, her young one]. (M in art. رأم; &c.: see also لِقَاحٌ مُعَطَّفَةٌ in this art.) And تُعْطَفُ عَلَى البَوِّ (assumed tropical:) [She (a camel) is made to incline to, or affect, the stuffed skin of a young unweaned camel in order that she may yield her milk, when her young one has died]. (S, O, [See عَطُوفٌ.]) b3: And عَطَفْتُهُ عَنْ حَاجَتِهِ (assumed tropical:) I turned him away, or back, from his object of want. (Msb.) b4: And عَطْفُ المُدْمَجِ i. e. القِدْحِ means The turning round about, or shuffling, of the gaming-arrow. (S voce مُدْمَجٌ: see a verse there cited.) 2 عَطَّفَ see 1, latter half, in four places.

A2: عَطَّفْتُهُ, ثَوْبِى, inf. n. تَعْطِيفٌ, I made my garment to be to him an عِطَاف, (O, K, TA,) i. e. a رِدَآء, [by putting it] upon his shoulders, as men do in the [season of] heat. (TA.) 5 تَعَطَّفَ see 1, former half, in three places. b2: [تعطّف also signifies He (a man) affected a bending of his body; like تَثَنَّى, with which it is coupled in the S and O and K in art. غوج.]

A2: تعطّف بِالعِطَافِ He clad himself (S, O, K *) with the عِطَاف (O) [i. e.] with the رِدَآء; (S;) as also بِهِ ↓ اعتطف. (Ibn-'Abbád, O, K. *) b2: Hence, in a trad., (TA,) in a prayer of the Prophet, (O,) سُبْحَانَ مَنْ تَعَطَّفَ بِالْعِزِّ وَقَالَ بِهِ, (O, TA,) meaning (tropical:) [I declare, or celebrate, or extol, the absolute perfection] of Him who hath clad Himself with might as with a رِدَآء [and (as expl. in the K in art. قول and by Sgh) hath predominated thereby]. (IAth, TA.) 6 تعاطفوا means عَطَفَ بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ [i. e. (assumed tropical:) They were, or became, favourably inclined, one towards another; or affectionate, or kind, one to another; &c.: see 1]. (S, O, K.) b2: And تعاطف فِى مِشْيَتِهِ He (a man, Lth, O) shook, or moved about, his head, in his gait: (Lth, O, K:) or he inclined from side to side, therein: or he walked with an elegant and a proud and self-conceited gait. (O, * K.) 7 إِنْعَطَفَ see 1, first quarter, in two places.8 إِعْتَطَفَ see 5. b2: [Hence,] اعتطف القَوْسَ He hung upon himself the bow, putting its suspensory belt or cord upon his neck or shoulder; (IAar, TA;) and so السَّيْفَ the sword. (TA.) 10 استعطفهُ, (O, K,) or استعطفهُ عَلَيْهِ, (S, [in which the meaning is indicated by the addition of فَعَطَفَ,]) signifies سَأَلَهُ أَنْ يَعْطِفَ عَلَيْهِ [He asked him to become favourably inclined towards him; to be affectionate, or kind, to him; or to regard him, or treat him, with mercy or pity or compassion]: (O, K:) [or he sought, or endeavoured, to conciliate to him his affection, or good will:] or اِسْتَعْطَفْتُهُ signifies سَأَلْتُهُ أَنْ يَنْعَطِفَ [I asked him to incline, or bend: but perhaps ينعطف is a mistranscription for يَعْطِفَ]. (Msb.) b2: See also 1, latter half, in two places.

عَطْفٌ: see the next paragraph, last sentence, in two places. b2: [It is used in grammar as meaning Adjunction to an antecedent: this is of two kinds; عَطْفُ البَيَانِ the explicative adjunction, as in جَآءَ أَخُوكَ زَيْدٌ; and عَطْفُ النَّسَقِ the ordinal adjunction, as in جَآءَ زَيْدٌ وَعَمْرٌو: (in each of which instances the latter noun is termed ↓ مَعْطُوفٌ; and the former noun عَلَيْهِ ↓ مَعْطُوفٌ:) and hence, حَرْفُ عَطْفٍ, meaning a particle of adjunction; or what we commonly call a conjunction; (as وَ and ثُمَّ, &c.;) also termed ↓ حَرْفٌ عَاطِفٌ an adjunctive particle.]

عِطْفٌ The side of a human being, from the head to the hip, or to the foot: (Mgh:) and the side of a thing: (Msb:) or the dual signifies the two sides of a man, from the part next the head to the hips: (S, O:) and the two sides of the neck of a man: (TA:) and the two sides of anything: (S, O, K:) as relating to a man, (TA,) or a thing. (Msb,) the pl. is أَعْطَافٌ, [properly a pl. of pane.,] (Msb, TA,) and, as relating to a man, عِطَافٌ also, and عُطُوفٌ. (TA.) Hence the phrase, هُمْ

أَلْيَنُ عِطْفًا [They are more pliant, or pliable; properly as meaning flexible, supple, lithe, or limber; but app. here used tropically, as meaning compliant: compare لَيِّنُ الجَانِبِ]. (Mgh.) and لَيِّنُ الأَعْطَافِ [Pliant, or pliable, &c.], applied to a horse: (En-Nadr, TA voce غُوْجٌ: [see also عَاجٌ, in art. عوج:]) and ↓ سَهْلُ المَعْطِفِ [and ↓ المَعَاطِفِ and الأَعْطَافِ, which signify the same,] so applied.

عِطْفَيْهِ, but the former is the right, (TA,) meaning [The bow] bent to the right and left [in the two curved parts of its extremities]. (O, K, TA.) b4: One says also, تَنَحَّ عَنْ عِطْفِ الطَّرِيقِ [i. e.

A2: Also Length of the edges of the eyelids, (O, K, TA,) and a bending [app. upwards] thereof: (TA:) occurring in a trad.: or the word, as some relate it, is غَطَفٌ [q. v.]; (O, TA;) which is of higher authority. (TA.) عَطْفَةٌ [as an inf. n. un.] An inclining: hence, in a trad., كَأَنَّ عَطْفَتَهُمْ حِينَ سَمِعُوا صَوْتِى عَطْفَةُ البَقَرِ عَلَى أَوْلَادِهَا [As though their inclining, when they heard my voice, were the inclining of the cows (app. meaning wild cows) towards their young ones].

تَلَبُّسَ عَطْفَةٍ بِفُرُوعِ ضَالِ [The love of her mingled with, and clung to, my blood and my flesh, like the mingling and clinging of an عطفة with, and to, the branches of a wild lote-tree].

[of pauc.] of عِطَافٌ is أَعْطِفَةٌ and [of mult.] عُطُفٌ and عُطُوفٌ; (TA;) and عُطْفٌ [also] is a pl. of عِطَافٌ as meaning an إِزَار: (K, TA:) the pl. of ↓ مِعْطَفٌ is مَعَاطِفُ; but As says that he had not heard any sing. of this pl. (O, TA.) b2: Hence, (S, O, TA,) عِطَافٌ signifies also A sword; (S, O, K, TA;) because the Arabs called it [in like manner] رِدَآءٌ [q. v.]; (TA;) and so ↓ مِعْطَفٌ. (K.) b3: And one says, السَّيْفُ عِطَافِى وَإِبَاطِى, meaning I put, or place, the sword upon my side, and beneath my armpit.
