This is the original signification. (Mgh.) [See the last sentence of this paragraph.] You say, رَأَيْتُ الشَّهْرَ, meaning I saw the new moon of the month. (Mgh.) Hence it is said in a trad., صُومُوا الشَّهْرَ, meaning Fast ye the first day of the lunar month. (Lh, TA.) And hence the trad., إِِنَّمَا الشَّهْرُ تِسْعٌ وَعِشْرُونَ, meaning The utility of watching for the new moon is on the nine and twentieth night. (L, TA.) [Or the meaning is, that the lunar month is a period of nine and twenty nights.] ― -b2- Also The moon: or the moon when conspicuous, and near to being full.

[of pauc.] أَشْهُرٌ (Msb, K) and [of mult.] شُهُورٌ. (S, Msb, K.)

(O, TA.) ― -b5- [And accord. to the K, it signifies also The like of a nail-paring: but this is app. a mistake, perhaps originating from a mutilated transcript of what here follows:] a poet says, describing camels, “ أَبْدَأْنَ مِنْ نَجْدٍ عَلَى ثِقَةٍ
وَالشَّهْرُ مِثْلُ قُلَامَةِ الظُّفْرِ
” [They went forth from Nejd in a state of confidence, the new moon being like the nail-paring]. (O.) شُهْرَةٌ ذ a subst. from الاِشْتِهَارُ, (Mgh,) signifying The appearance, conspicuousness, manifestness, notoriousness, notableness, or publicity, of a thing: (S, O, Msb:) or [generally] its appearance, &c., as bad, evil, abominable, foul, or unseemly; its notoriousness in a bad sense, or infamousness.

(TK in that art.) بِرْذَوْنٌ شِهْرِىٌّ ذ A برذون [or hackney] between the رَمَكَة [or mare of mean breed] and the horse of generous breed: one says, لَمْ يَرْكَبِ الشِّهْرِيَّةَ and الشَّهَارِىَ [He did not ride hackneys of the sort above mentioned]: (A:) or شِهْرِيَّةٌ signifies بَرَاذِين [or hackneys]; and its pl. is شَهَارٍ: (Mgh:) or a sort of بَرَاذِين [or hackneys]; (Lth, O, K;) a horse of which the dam is Arabian but not the sire.
