And ضُمَّتْ عَلَيْهِ الأَنَامِلُ The ends of the fingers were drawn together upon it. (Ham p. 21. [See also a similar phrase in what follows, with the verb in the act. form, virtually meaning the same.]) ― -b2- [Also He compacted it: and he compressed it. ― -b3- And He, or it, comprised it; or enclosed it: and he grasped it: as also ضَمَّ عَلَيْهِ, in both of these senses.] You say, ضَمَّتْ عَلَيْهِ الأَنَامِلُ The ends of the fingers grasped it.

Q. 1.] 6 تَضَامُّوا ذ They became, or drew, near, or close, together, or one to another; or became conjoined, one with another. (S, MA, TA. [See also 8.]) Hence the saying in a trad., لَا تَضَامُّونَ فِى رُؤْيَتِهِ [originally تَتَضَامُّونَ]; but some relate it otherwise, saying ↓ لا تُضَامُّونَ ; and some, لا تُضَامُونَ, from الضَّيْمُ; (TA in this art.;) and some, لا تُضَارُّونَ; and some, لا تُضَارُونَ, from الضَّيْرُ.

(S, * MA, K. *) [And it signifies also He adjoined himself, got him or got himself, betook him or betook himself, repaired, or resorted, to him, or it. And انضمّ عَلَيْهِ It became drawn together upon it. انضمّ الى كَذَا is expl. in the TA as meaning اِنْطَوَى: but I think that الى is evidently a mistranscription for عَلَى; and that the meaning therefore is, It infolded such a thing, or enclosed it, like اضطمّ عليه, q. v.] 8 اضطمّ الشَّىْءَ ذ He drew, brought, or gathered, the thing to himself: (K:) the ط is substituted for ت because of the ض.
