(Mughnee voce أَلَا.) It is said in the Kur [lxxxix. 19], accord. to the reading of the people of El-Medeeneh, وَلَا يَحُضُّونَ عَلَى طَعَامِ المِسْكينِ; and accord. to that of El-Hasan, تَحُضُّونَ; [Nor do they, or ye, excite one another to feed the poor, or destitute]: (TA:) or nor do they, or ye, command to feed the poor, &c.: (Fr, TA:) and there are other readings thereof: see 3 and 6. (TA.) The grammarians apply to the particles هَلَّا and أَلَّا and لَوْلَا and لَوْمَا the term حُرُوفُالتَّحْضِيضِ [Particles of exciting]; and say that when they are followed by a future, they denote exciting to an action, and seeking or desiring or demanding the performance of it; and when followed by a preterite, reproof for not doing a thing. (Msb.) 2 حضّضهُ حضض حضضه حضضة حضيض , inf. n. تَحْضِيضٌ: see 1, in two places. 3 حاضّهُ حاض حاضه حاضة , (TK,) inf. n. مُحَاضَّةٌ, (S, K,) He excited him, &c., as above, being excited, &c., by him. (S, K, TK.) In the Kur ubi suprà, among the various readings are these two: وَلَا يُحَاضُّونَ and ولا تُحَاضُّونَ, meaning, accord. to Fr, Nor are they, or ye, mindful. (TA.) 6 تحاضّوا تحاضوا They excited, &c., one another. (S, K.) In the Kur ubi suprà, some read وَلَا تَحَاضُّونَ (Fr, S, TA) Nor do ye excite one another. (Fr.) حُضٌّ حض , said to be a subst.: see 1. حَضِيضٌ حضيض A depressed piece (قَرَار) of ground at the place where a mountain ends; (S;) or a depressed piece (قرار) of ground at, or by, the سَفْح [i. e. foot, or bottom, or lowest part,] of a mountain; or in, or at, the lower, or lowest, part thereof, (فِى أَسْفَلِهِ,) the سفح being behind the حضيض; the حضيض being in the part next the سفح, and the سفح being دُونَ ذٰلِكَ [which seems to be virtually a repetition, signifying behind that part, or it may mean above that part]: (TA:) or i. q. سَفْحٌ: (K in art. سفح:) or a depressed piece (قرار) of ground: (A:) or a tract (حِجزٌ [in the CK, erroneously, حَجَر]), and a depressed piece (قرار), in land or ground: (K:) and any low piece (سَافِلٌ) of land or ground: (TA:) and the ground [in an absolute sense]: (S:) pl. [of pauc.] أَحِضَّةٌ and [of mult.] حُضُضٌ. (K.) It has the last of the above-mentioned significations in a certain trad., in which it is related that a present being brought to Mohammad, he, not finding anything upon which to put it, said, ضَعْهُ بِالحَضِيضِ, meaning بِالأَرْضِ; [i. e. Put thou it upon the ground;] adding, for I am only a servant; I eat as the servant eateth. (S.) حِضِّيضَى حضيض حضيضى حضيضي حضيضيي and حُضِّيضَى, said to be substs.: see 1.
