(S.) The saying اَللّٰهُ أَكْبَرُ at the commencement of prayer is termed تَكْبِيرَةُ التَّحْرِيمِ [The تكبيرة of prohibition], because it prohibits the person praying from saying and doing anything extraneous to prayer: and it is also termed ↓ تكبيرةُ الإِِحْرَامِ , meaning the تكبيرة of entering upon a state of prohibition by prayer. (TA.)

'Omar said, الصِّيَامُ إِِحْرَامٌ [Fasting is a state of prohibition], because the faster is prohibited from doing that which would break his fast. (Sh, TA.) And الرَّجُلُ يُحْرِمُ فِى الغَضَبِ, a saying of El-Hasan, means The man swears in anger, because he becomes prohibited thereby (بِهِلِتَحَرُّمِهِ ) [from doing, or refraining from, a thing]. (TA.)

(KL.) 8 احترمهُ احترمه احترمة أحترمه ٱحترم ٱحترمه He held him in reverence, respect, or honour; he reverenced, respected, or honoured, him. (MA.) [See حُرْمَةٌ. Golius and Freytag explain اِحْتَرَمَ as meaning “ Dignitate et præsidio venerabilis fuit: ” but it is the pass., اُحْتُرِمَ, that has this meaning; or rather, he was held in reverence, &c.; was reverenced, &c.] 10 استحرم أستحرم استحرم ٱستحرم [He deemed himself in a state of prohibition]. It is said in a trad., of Adam, اِسْتَحْرَمَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِ ا@بْنِهِ مِائَةَ سَنَةٍ لَمْ يَضْحَكْ [He deemed himself in a state of prohibition, after the death of his son, a hundred years, not laughing]: from أَحْرَمَ signifying “ he entered into a sacred, or an inviolable, state. ” (TA.) -A2- استحرمت, said of a female cloven-hoofed animal, &c.: see 1. حَرْمٌ حرم حرمة : see حِرْمٌ. حُرْمٌ حرم حرمة The state of إِِحْرَام (Az, S, K) on account of the performance of the حَجّ or the عُمْرَة; (Az, TA;) as also ↓ حِرْمٌ .

(K in art. حل.) And hence the saying of 'Áïsheh, respecting Mohammad, كُنْتُ أُطَيِّبُهُ لِحُلِّهِ وَحُرْمِهِ, i. e. [I used to perfume him when he was free from احرام and] when he was in the state of احرام: (S, Msb: *) or when he became free from احرام and when he performed the ablution and desired to enter upon the state of احرام for the حَجّ or the عُمْرَة. (Az, TA.) [حُرْمُكَ in copies of the K, explained as meaning نِسَاؤُكَ وَ مَا تَحْمِى, is a mistranscription for حُرَمُكَ: see حُرْمَةٌ.] حِرْمٌ حرم حرمة : see حُرْمٌ, in two places. -A2- See also حَرَامٌ, in two places. ― -b2- وَ حِرْمٌ عَلَى قَرْيَةٍ أَهْلَكْنَاهَا أَنَّهُمْ لَا يَرْجِعُونَ, (S, * K, * TA,) in the Kur [xxi. 95], (TA,) thus read by some, (S, TA,) means وَاجِبٌ [i. e. It is a necessary lot of the people of a town that we have destroyed that they shall not return] (S, K, TA) to their present state of existence: (TA:) so explained by Ks, (S, TA,) and by I'Ab and Fr and Zj: (TA:) some read ↓ حَرْمٌ : (Bd:) the people of El-Medeeneh read ↓ حَرَامٌ ; meaning forbidden; and accord. to this reading and meaning, لا is redundant: (TA:) [or حَرَامٌ in this instance is syn. with وَاجِبٌ, like حِرْمٌ; for it is said that] the explanation of Ks is confirmed by the saying of 'Abd-er-Rahmán Ibn-Jumáneh [in the TA حمانة, app. for جُمَانَة,] ElMuháribee, a Jáhilee, “ لَا أَرَى الدَّهْرَ بَاكِيًافَإِِنَّ حَرَامًا
عَلَى شَجْوِهِ إِِلَّا بَكِيتُ عَلَى عَمْرٍو
” [For it is a necessary thing that I should not ever see one weeping for his sorrow but I should weep for 'Amr]. (TA.) حَرَمٌ حرم حرمة : see حَرَامٌ, with which it is sometimes syn., like as زَمَنٌ is with زَمَانٌ. (S, Msb, TA.) ― -b2- [Hence,] الحَرَمُ The حَرَم [or sacred territory] of Mekkeh, (Lth, Az, Msb, * K,) upon the limits of which were set up ancient boundary-marks [said to have been] built by Abraham; (Az, TA;) also called حَرَمُ ا@للّٰهِ and حَرَمُ رَسُوِلِ ا@للّٰهِ (K) and ↓ المُحَرَّمُ : (Lth, K:) also the حَرَم of El-Medeeneh: (Msb:) [and Mekkeh itself: and El-Medeeneh itself:] and الحَرَمَانِ [the sacred territory of Mekkeh and that of El-Medeeneh: and] Mekkeh [itself] and El-Medeeneh [itself]: pl. أَحْرَامٌ: (K:) and حَرَمُ ا@للّٰهِ is also applied to Mekkeh [itself].

يَقُولُ لَا غَائِبٌ مَالِى وَ لَا حَرِمُ
” [And if a friend come to him, on a day of solicitation, he says, My cattle are not, or my property is not, absent, nor forbidden, or refused]: (S, IB, TA:) [in the S, this is cited as an ex. of حَرِمٌ as syn. with حِرْمَانٌ, which is an inf. n. of حَرَمَهُ, q. v.: but] IB says that حَرِم means مَمْنُوع: (TA:) يقول in this verse is marfooa though commencing an apodosis, because meant to be understood as put before [in the protasis], accord. to Sb; as though the poet said, يَقُولُ إِِنْ أَتَاهُ خَلِيلٌ: accord. to the Koofees, it is so by reason of فَ understood. (S, TA.) حُرْمَةٌ حرم حرمه حرمة The state of being forbidden, prohibited, or unlawful: (KL:) [and of being sacred, or inviolable; sacredness, or inviolability: (see حَرُمَ, of which it is an inf. n.:)] and the state of being revered, respected, or honoured.

(Msb) When a man has relationship [to us], and we regard him with bashfulness, we say, لَهُ حُرْمَةٌ [Reverence, &c., is due to him; or is rendered to him]. (Az, TA.) And we say, لِلْمُسْلِمِ عَلَى المُسْلِمِ حُرْمَةٌ [Reverence, &c., to the Muslim is incumbent on the Muslim]. (Az, TA.) ― -b3- Also A thing that should be sacred, or inviolable; (S, Msb, K;) and so ↓ مَحْرَمَةٌ and ↓ مَحْرُمَةٌ (S, Msb) and ↓ مَحْرَمٌ : (Msb:) as, for instance, a man's honour, or reputation: (TK:) a thing which one is under an obligation to reverence, respect, or honour [and defend]: (Jel in ii. 190:) a thing of which one is under an obligation to be mindful, observant, or regardful: (Bd ibid.:) [everything that is entitled to reverence, respect, honour, or defence, in the character and appertenances of a person: a thing that one is bound to do, or from which one is bound to refrain, from a motive of reverence, respect, or honour: (see the next sentence:) and any attribute that renders the subject thereof entitled to reverence, respect, or honour:] the pl. of حُرْمَةٌ is حُرُمَاتٌ (Bd and Jel ubi suprà, and TA) [and حُرَمَاتٌ and حُرْمَاتٌ, as above,] and حُرَمٌ; (Msb;) and that of ↓ مَحْرَمٌ [and ↓ مَحْرَمَةٌ and ↓ مَحْرُمَةٌ ] is مَحَارِمُ; (Msb;) and مَحْرَمَاتٌ and مَحْرُمَاتٌ [also] are pls. of ↓ مَحْرَمَةٌ and ↓ مَحْرُمَةٌ . (As, S.) حُرُمَاتُ ا@للّٰهِ means [The inviolable ordinances and prohibitions of God: or] the ordinances of God, and other inviolable things: (Bd and Jel * in xxii. 31:) or what it is incumbent on one to perform, and unlawful to neglect: (Zj, K:) or all the requisitions of God relating to the rites and ceremonies of the pilgrimage and to other things: (Ksh in xxii. 31:) or the حَرَم [or sacred territory] and the requisitions relating to the pilgrimage: (Bd ubi suprà:) or the requisitions relating to the pilgrimage in particular: (Ksh ubi suprà:) or the Kaabeh and the sacred mosque and the sacred territory and the sacred month and the person who is in the state of إِِحْرَام: (Ksh and Bd ibid.:) or the inviolability (حُرْمَة) of the sacred territory and of the state of إِِحْرَام and of the sacred month: (TA:) or Mekkeh and the pilgrimage and the عُمْرَة, and all the acts of disobedience to God which He has forbidden: (Mujáhid, TA:) or [simply] the acts of disobedience to God.

(K.) ― -b5- And [hence also] A man's حُرَم [i. e. his wives, or women under covert,] and his family: (S:) and [in like manner the pl.] حُرَمٌ, accord. to the K حُرْمٌ, but correctly like زُفَرٌ, (TA,) a man's wives, or women [under covert], (K, TA,) and his household, or family, (TA,) and what he protects, or defends; as also مَحَارِمُ, of which the sing. is ↓ مَحْرُمَةٌ and ↓ مَحْرَمَةٌ : (K, TA:) and hence حُرْمَةٌ is applied by the vulgar to signify a wife. (TA.) [In Har, p. 377, a man's حُرْمَة is said to mean his حَرَم and his family: and in p. 489, a man's حَرَم is said to mean his family and his wives and those whom he protects, or defends.

(TA. [See 2.]) ― -b3- [اِبْنُ حَرَامٍ An illegitimate son: and a disingenuous, or dishonest, person.] ― -b4- شَهْرٌ حَرَامٌ [A sacred month]: (Msb:) pl. حُرُمٌ.
