ذُبَحَ ذ , (S, Msb, K, &c.,) aor. ذَبَحَ , (K,) inf. n. ذَبْحٌ (S, Msb, K, &c.) and ذُبَاحٌ, (K,) He cut, or divided, lengthwise; clave; split; slit; rent, or rent open; ripped, or ripped open. (S, Msb, K.) [Accord. to Fei,] this is the primary signification. (Msb.) [But see what follows.] You say, ذَبَحَ فَأْرَةَ المِسْكَ (assumed tropical:) He (a perfumer, A) ripped open the follicle, or vesicle, of mush, (A, TA,) and took forth the mush that was in it. (TA.) [In the A and TA this is said to be tropical; the authors evidently holding it to be from ذَبَحَ in the sense here next following.] ― -b2- He slaughtered [for food, or sacrificed,] (L, TA) and animal, (Msb,) or a sheep or goat, (S, TA,) or an ox or a cow, and a sheep or goat, and the like, (Mgh,) [in the manner prescribed by the law, i. e.,] by cutting the وَدَجَانِ [or two external jugular veins], (Mgh,) or by cutting the throat, from beneath, at the part next the head: (L, TA:) accord. to the K, i. q. نَحَرَ: but correctly, الذَّبْحُ is in the throat; and النَّحْرُ is in the pit above the breast, between the collar-bones, where camels are stabbed: the latter word is used in relation to camels and bulls and cows; and the former, in relation to other animals: or, not improbably, both may have originally signified the causing the soul to depart by wounding the throat, or the pit above the breast, which is the stabbing-place in the camel; and may then have been applied in peculiar [and different] senses by the lawyers. (MF. [See also ذَكَاةٌ, in art. ذكو.]) Also (assumed tropical:) He slaughtered, or slew, in any manner. (L.) [You say, ذَبَحَ عَنْهُ He slaughtered, or sacrificed, for him, by way of expiation.] And ذَبَحَ بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضًا (assumed tropical:) [They slaughtered, or slew, one another]. (S, K.) And أَخَذَهُمْ بَنُو فُلَانٍ بِالذُّبَاحِ (assumed tropical:) The sons of such a one slaughtered, or slew, them. (TA.) And ↓ ذبّح (inf. n. تَذْبِيحٌ, KL) signifies the same as ذَبَحَ, except that it applies [only] to many objects; whereas the latter applies to few and to many: thus it is said in the Kur [ii. 46, and in like manner in xiv. 6], يُذَبِّحُونَ أَبْنَآءَكُمْ (assumed tropical:) [They slaughtering, or slaying, your sons], accord. to the reading commonly obtaining. (Aboo-Is-hák, TA.) ― -b3- Hence, (tropical:) He killed; because الذَّبْحُ [in its proper sense, when the object is an animal,] is one of the quickest modes of killing. (TA.) It is said in a trad., (Mgh, TA,) cautioning against accepting the office of a Kádee, (Mgh,) مَنْ جُعِلَ قَاضِيًا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ فَكَأَنَّمَا ذُبِحَ بِغَيْرِ سِكِّينٍ (tropical:) [Whoso is made a Kádee among the people, he is as though he were slaughtered without a knife]: (Mgh, TA: *) expl. by some as meaning, (tropical:) he is as though he were killed [&c.]. (TA.) ― -b4- [Hence, also, because الذَّبْحُ renders the flesh of an animal allowable, or lawful, as food,] (tropical:) It rendered allowable, or lawful: as salt and the sun and the fishes called نِينَان (pl. of نُونٌ) do wine, by changing its quality, as is said in a trad. (TA.) ― -b5- Also (tropical:) He broached, or pierced, a دَنّ [or wine-jar, making a hole in the mouth, or removing the clay that closed the mouth], so as to draw forth the contents. (S, A, Msb, K.) ― -b6- And (tropical:) He, or it, choked. (K, TA.) You say, ذَبَحَتْهُ العَبْرَةُ (tropical:) Weeping choked him. (A, TA.) ― -b7- And, said of thirst, (tropical:) It affected him severely, or distressed him. (A, TA.) ― -b8- ذَبَحَتِ اللِّحْيَةُ فُلَانًا (tropical:) The beard flowed down beneath the chin of such a one so that the anterior portion of the part beneath his lower jaw was apparent: in which case, the man is said to be بِلِحْيَتِهِ ↓ مَذْبُوحٌ . (K, TA.) 2 ذَبَّحَ see 1. -A2- تَذْبِيحٌ is [said to be] syn. with تَذْبِيحٌ, (K, TA,) in prayer: accord. to Hr, ذبّح رَأْسَهُ signifies He lowered his head, in inclining his body in prayer; like دبّح: and accord. to Lth, ذبّح signifies he lowered his head, in inclining his body in prayer, so that it became lower than his back: but Az says that this is a mistake, and that the correct word is دبّح, with the unpointed د. (TA.) 6 تذابحوا ذ (assumed tropical:) They slaughtered, or slew, one another. (S, MA, K.) One says, التَّمَادُحُ التَّذَابُحُ (tropical:) [Mutual praising is mutual slaughtering]. (S, A.) 8 اِذَّبَحَ ذ He took, or prepared, for himself a slaughtered [or sacrificed] animal. (S, K.) ذِبْحٌ ذ An animal prepared for slaughter [or sacrifice; i. e. an intended victim]: (T, A, Msb, TA:) [see also ذَبِيحٌ, which occurs in this sense in a trad. as applied to a human being:] or an animal that is slaughtered [or sacrificed]; (S, Mgh, K, TA;) and so ↓ ذَبِيحَةٌ ; (Mgh, Msb;) or this signifies a slaughtered [or sacrificed] sheep or goat; (TA;) and is [nominally] fem. of ذَبِيحٌ, but the ة is affixed only because the quality of a subst. is predominant in it: (S:) or the ذَبِيحٌ is added to denote that the word is applied to a sheep, or goat, [to be slaughtered or sacrificed,] not yet slaughtered [or sacrificed]; and when the act has been executed upon it, it is [said to be] ذَبِيحٌ: (M, voce رَمِيَّةٌ:) ذِبْحٌ is applied to an animal that is slaughtered either as a sacrifice on the occasion of the pilgrimage or otherwise; and is like طِحْنٌ in the sense of مَطْحُونٌ, and عِطْفٌ in the sense of مَعْطُوفٌ, &c.: (TA:) the pl. of ↓ ذَبِيحَةٌ is ذَبَائِحُ. (Mgh, Msb.) It is said in the Kur [xxxvii. 107], وَفَدَيْنَاهُ بِدِبْحٍ عَظِيمٍ [And we ransomed him with a great victim]. (S, A.) الجِنِّ ↓ ذَبَائِحُ means Animals sacrificed to the Jinn, or Genii: for it was customary for a man, when he bought a house, or drew forth [for the first time] the water of a spring, and the like, to sacrifice an animal to the Jinn with the view of avoiding ill luck, (A, TA,) lest some disagreeable accident should happen to him from the Jinn thereof: (A:) and the doing this is forbidden. (A, TA.) -A2- See also ذُبَحَةٌ. ذُبَحٌ ذ A certain plant which ostriches eat: (S:) this word and ↓ ذِبَحٌ signify the plant called الجَزَرُ البَّرىُّ, (K, TA,) which is of a red colour: and, accord. to the K, another plant: but correctly a red plant (نَبْتٌ أَحْمَرُ, not نبت آخَرُ,) having a stem, or root, (أَصْلٌ) from which is peeled off a black peel, whereupon there is taken forth a white substance, resembling a white خزرة [or bead, but perhaps this is a mistranscription for جَزَرَة, i. e. a carrot], which is sweet and good, and is eaten: [each word is a coll. gen. n.;] and the n. un. is ذُبَحَةٌ and ذِبَحَةٌ: so says AHn, on the authority of Fr: and he says also, on the authority of AA, that the ذُبَحَة is a tree that grows upon a stem, and in a manner resembling the كراث [app. كَرَاث, not كُرَّاث], and then has a yellow flower; its root is like a جزرة [i. e. جَزَرَة, or carrot], and it is sweet, and of a red colour: (TA:) or the ذُبَح is a plant having a stem, or root, (أَصْلٌ,) which is peeled, and there comes forth what resembles the جِزر [i. e. جِزَر or جَزَر, meaning carrot]; and a black skin is peeled from it; and it is sweet, and is eaten; and has a red flower.

And كَانَ ذٰلِكَ مِثْلَ الذُّبَحَةِ عَلَى النَّحْرِ [That was like the disease called ذبحة in the uppermost part of the breast]: a prov., applied to the case of a man whom one imagines to be a sincere friend, and who proves to be an evident enemy: (TA:) or كَانَ مِثْلَ الذُّبَحَةِ الخ He was like the ذبحة &c., a disease in the حَلْق, which does not quit the patient externally, and hurts him internally: said by him to whom you complain of one whom you imagined to be a sincere friend, and whose affection was outward, when his deceit has become manifest.

[of ذَبِيحٌ] is ذَبْحَى and ذَبَاحَى and [that of ذَبِيحَةٌ is] ذَبَائِحُ. (TA.) Aboo-Dhu-eyb says, describing wine, “ يُقَالُ لَهَا دَمُ الوَدَجِ الذَّبِيحُ
” meaning المَذْبُوحُ عَنْهُ, i. e. [One would call it the blood of the external jugular vein,] for which it had been slit [to let it flow]. (AAF, TA.) And again he says, “ وَسِرْبٍ تَطَلَّى بِالعَبِيرِ كَأَنَّهُ

(TA.) ― -b3- ذَبِيحٌ also signifies An animal that is fit, or proper, to be slaughtered as a sacrifice: (ISk, S, K:) [or that is destined, or prepared, for sacrifice; i. e., an intended victim; like ذِبْحٌ; as appears from the fact that] الذَّبِيحُ is (assumed tropical:) a surname of Ismá'eel, or Ishmael; (K, * TA;) for, accord. to some [or rather the generality] of the Muslims, he was the son whom Abraham designed to sacrifice, though others say it was Isaac: (TA:) and أَنَا ا@بْنُ الذَّبِيحَيْنِ occurs in a trad.
