تَأَوَّهُ آهَةَ الرَّجُلِ الحَزِينِ
” [When I arise to saddle her, by night, she moans with the moaning of the sorrowful man]: (S, ISd:) ISd says that, in his opinion, the subst. is here put in the place of the inf. n., i. e. تَأَوُّه: (TA:) but some recite the verse differently, saying, أَهَّةَ, from أَهَّ meaning تَوَجَّعَ: (S:) and some say, تَهَوَّهُ هَاهَةَ. (TA.) And hence the saying, in imprecating evil on a man, آهَةً لَكَ [May God cause moaning to thee!], and أَوَّةً لَكَ, with the ه suppressed, and with teshdeed to the و. (S.) [See also أَوَّةٌ in art. او.] And see آهِ above. -A2- [Also] Measles: thus in the phrase, used in imprecating evil on a man, آهَةً وَمَاهَةً [May God cause] measles and small-pox [to befall thee]!
