(Ham p. 66.) ― -b3- [And accord. to Reiske, as stated by Freytag, صَبَحَ signifies He drank in the early morning: but I think that Reiske may have assigned to it this meaning from his having found the pass. form of the verb, not distinguished as such, used in a case in which it might be supposed to signify thus.]. ― -b4- See also 2, in five places. -A2- صَبَحٌ as an inf. n.

(L, K.) By the following words of EshShemmákh, “ وَقِيلُ المُنَادِى أَصْبَحَ القَوْمُ أَدْلِجِى
” is meant, [And the saying of the crier is,] The people, or party, have nearly entered upon the time of dawn: prosecute the night-journey: for the Arabs, when they have nearly arrived at a place which they desire to reach, say, قَدْ بَلَغْنَاهُ; and when travellers are near the time of daybreak, they say, أَصْبَحْنَا. (T, L.) ― -b2- [Hence,] (tropical:) He awoke from sleep in the جَوْف [i. e. last third, or last sixth,] of the night. (A, TA.) [And simply (tropical:) He awoke: for] one says to the sleeper, أَصْبِحْ, meaning (tropical:) Awake thou from sleep. (A, TA.) And one says also, أَصْبِحْ يَا رَجُلُ, meaning (tropical:) Become roused, O man, (A, K, * TA,) from thy heedlessness or inadvertence, (A, TA,) and see thy right course, (K, TA,) and what will rectify thy state.

(TA.) -A2- See also 8, in two places. 6 فُلَانٌ يَتَصَابَحُ ذ and يَتَحَاسَنُ [Such a one affects to be beautful, comely, pretty, or elegant: the latter verb is here added as an explicative of the former: see صَبُحَ]. (A, TA.) 8 اصطبح ذ He drank a morning-draught, or what is termed a صَبُوح; (S, K, TA;) [and] so ↓ اصبح . (Msb. [Thus in my copy of the Msb, but probably a mistranscription, for the former is the verb well known in this sense, and is not in that copy.]) It is said in a trad., مَالَنَا صَبِىٌّ يَصْطَبِحُ [We have not a child that drinks a morningdraught]; meaning we have not as much milk as a child may drink in the early morning, in consequence of the drought. (TA.) -A2- And i. q. أَسْرَجَ [as meaning He lighted a lamp or wick, or himself or another with a lamp &c.]; (K, TA;) and so ↓ اصبح (A, TA) [in the former sense], as in the phrase اصبح مِصْبَاحًا [he lighted a lamp or wick]; (A;) and اصبح alone has this meaning, i. e. أَسْرَجَ سِرَاجًا. (TA, from a trad.) [But it is used often in the latter sense:] one says, الشَّمْعُ مِمَّا يُصْطَبَحُ بِهِ Candles are of the things with which one lights [himself, or others]; syn. يُسْرَجُ: (S:) [and in like manner ↓ تصبّح ; for] one says, هُوَ يَتَصَبَّحُ بِالشُّمُوعِ [He lights himself, or others, with candles]: (A:) [and in like manner also ↓ استصبح ; for] one says, استصبح بِالمِصْبَاحِ (S, MA, Mgh, Msb, K *) He lighted [himself, or another,] with the lamp, or wick; (MA;) syn. أَسْرَجَ; (S;) or اِسْتَسْرَجَ: (K:) [hence it appears that اصطبح بِهِ and بهاستصبح and بهتصبّح may be aptly rendered he employed it as a means of light; and thus the second of these three verbs, is expl. in treatises on practical law:] one says also, بِالدُّهْنِاستصبح [He employed oil as a means of light; or] he made the lamp, or wick, to give light by means of oil: (Mgh, Msb:) and it is said in a trad. respecting the several sorts of fat (شُحُوم) of carrion, بِهَا النَّاسُيَسْتَصْبِحُ The people [employ them as means of light; or] make their lamps, or wicks, to give light by means of them.

(so in the Msb, but in the K “ or ”) the beginning, or first part, of day: (Msb, K:) ↓ إِِصْبَاحٌ is an inf. n. [inf. n. of أَصْبَحَ] used in the sense of صُبْح, in the Kur vi. 96, (Jel,) and is similar to إِِبْكَارٌ; (TA;) [and ↓ مُصْبَحٌ is the n. of place and time from أَصْبَحَ:] the pl. of صُبْحٌ is أَصْبَاحٌ; (K;) and thus some read in the Kur vi. 96. (Bd.) See also أَصْبَحُ. One says, أَتَيْتُهُ لِصُبْحِ خَامِسَةٍ and خامسةلِصِبْحِ , (S, K,) meaning [I came to him] in the morning (صَبَاح) [of the last] of five days; (K;) i. e., of a fifth day; (TK;) [or rather, of a fifth night, as the last word is fem.;] like as one says, لِمُِسْىِ خامسة. (S.) ― -b2- الصُّبْحُ is also used as meaning (assumed tropical:) The truth; and the clear, or plain, thing or case. (Ham p. 449.) ― -b3- And أُمُّ صُبْحٍ is one of the names of Mekkeh.

(TA.) ― -b2- And A sleep in the morning, or first part of day, before sunrise; as also ↓ صَبْحَةٌ ; (S, * K;) or both signify a sleep in the ضُحَى [expl. above]; (A;) but the latter is by some disapproved: such sleep is forbidden in a trad., because it is in a time for the commemoration of the praises of God and then for seeking gain. (TA.) One says, فُلَانٌ يَنَامُ الصُّبْحَةَ and ↓ الصَّبْحَةَ [Such a one sleeps in the first part of day, before sunrise]. (S.) ― -b3- And Food with which one contents, or diverts, himself [so as to allay the craving of his stomach], in the morning or first part of day, before sunrise.

(TA. [See also أَصَبَحُ.]) صَبْحَانُ ذ A man who has drunk a morningdraught, or what is termed a صَبُوح; (TA;) or who has done so, and satisfied his thirst thereby: (Aboo-'Adnán, TA:) [in the S and K it is implied that it is syn. with مُصْطَبِحٌ, q. v.:] fem. صَبْحَى. (S, TA.) Hence the prov., أَكْذَبُ مِنَ الأَخِيذِ الصَّبْحَانِ (Aboo-'Adnán, S, TA) More lying than the captive who had satisfied his thirst with a morning-draught: (Aboo-'Adnán, TA:) the person thus alluded to was a man who was among a people that gave him a morning-draught, after which he arose and quitted them, and was taken by another people, who said to him, “ Guide us to the place where thou wast; ” to which he replied, “ I have passed the night in the bare desert: ” but presently he sat down to make water, so they knew that he had passed the night with a people near by; and by his means they found their way to them, and exterminated them: (IAar, TA:) or the prov. is أَكْذَبُ مِنَ الأَخِدِ الصَّبْحَانِ More lying than the young unweaned camel that has satisfied its thirst with drinking [its mother's milk in the morning]; which [seems to be thirsty but] will not drink of its mother's milk when one desires it to do so: (IAar, Sh, TA:) or, accord. to Fr, than the young unweaned camel that is affected with indigestion, or heaviness of the stomach, from drinking much milk, and therefore craves for milk again. (Meyd. [See also Freytag's Arab. Prov.: he seems to have followed a faulty text.]) ― -b2- Also the fem., صَبْحَى, A she-camel that has been milked [app. in the morning].

Morning, or forenoon, counted from sunrise to noon: (Msb and TA in art. مسو:) or, accord. to some, from midnight to noon: (TA in art. مسو:) or, accord. to the Arabs, from the beginning of the latter half of the night to the time when the sun declines from the meridian; then commences the مَسَآء, extending to the end of the former half of the night; thus expl. by Th; so says El-Jawá- leekee. (Msb.) The Arabs say, when they regard a man, &c., as ominous of evil, صَبَاحُ ا@للّٰهِ لَا صَبَاحُكَ [God's morning: not thy morning]: and if you will, you may say, صَبَاحَ ا@للّٰهِ لَا صَبَاحَكَ. (Lh, TA.) And عِمْ صَبَاحًا, (S,) or عِمُوا صَبَاحًا, (K,) lit. imperative, but meaning a prayer, i. e. May thy life, or your life, be pleasant during the morning, (Har p. 32, and TA * in arts. نعم and وعم,) is a salutation of the people of the Time of Ignorance. (TA.) One says also, لَقِيتُهُ صَبَاحًا, and ذَا صَبَاحٍ, (S,) or أَتَيْتُهُ ذَا صَبَاحٍ, (K,) which [i. e. ذا صباح] is only used adverbially, (Sb, S, K,) except in the dial. of Khath'am, (Sb, S,) meaning [I met him, or I came to him,] in a morning, [or] between daybreak and sunrise: (K:) the following verse (S, TA) by Anas Ibn-Nuheyk, of Khath'am, (TA,) or, as some say, by Iyás Ibn-Mudrikeh El-Hanafee, (so in a marg. note in a copy of the S,) presents an exception to the adverbial usage: “ عَزَمْتُ عَلَى إِِقَامَةِ ذِى صَبَاحٍ
لِأَمْرٍ مَّا يُسَوَّدُ مَنْ يَسُودُ
” (S, TA:) the poet means, I determined to stay until the time of the صباح [i. e. either dawn or forenoon]: for it is on account of some particular thing, i. e. some good quality, or some praiseworthy thing, that he is made a chief who becomes a chief: thus Ibn-Es-Seeráfee explains this verse. (TA.) And one says, ↓ أَتَيْتُهُ ذَا صَبُوحٍ , not used otherwise than adverbially, meaning the same as ذَا صَبَاحٍ, expl. above; (K;) and ↓ ذَاتَ الصَّبُوحِ in the morning, or first part of day, before sunrise: (IAar, TA:) or ↓ ذَا صَبُوحٍ [properly means] in a time of drinking the [morning-draught called] صَبُوح. (TA.) And يَوْمِ كَذَاأَتَيْتُهُ صَبِيحَةَ [I came to him in the dawn, or in the morning, or forenoon, of such a day]: (A:) and ↓ أُصْبُوحَةَ كُلِّ يَوْمٍ [in the morning of every day]; and in like manner, أُمْسِيَّةَ كُلِّ يَوْمٍ. (S.) And أَتَيْتُهُ صَبَاحَ مَسَآءَ, (Sb, A, TA,) for صَبَاحًا وَمَسَآءً, [I came to him morning and evening,] meaning every morning and evening: (Sharh esh-Shudhoor, p. 31:) the two nouns are thus constructed by some of the Arabs, after the manner of خَمْسَةَ عَشَرَ: but some prefix the former noun to the other, putting the latter in the gen. case, except when the expression is used as a denotative of state, or adverbially: (TA:) [or, accord. to IHsh,] صَبَاحَ مَسَآءٍ is allowable as [an adverbial expression] meaning صَبَاحَ ذَا مَسَآءٍ [lit. in a morning having an evening, or in a forenoon having an afternoon]; and a similar instance occurs in the Kur, ch. lxxix. last verse. (Sharh esh-Shudhoor, ubi suprà.) ― -b3- يَوْمُ الصَّبَاحِ means (tropical:) The day of the hostile, or predatory, incursion. (S, A, K.) The Arabs, when suddenly attacked in the morning by a troop of horsemen, cry aloud, يَا صَبَاحَاهْ (assumed tropical:) [O! a hostile, or predatory, incursion!]; warning the whole tribe: (TA:) this is said by him who calls for aid: (JM:) for they generally made a hostile, or predatory, incursion in the morning: (TA, JM:) or, as some say, the two conflicting parties used, when night came, to abstain; and when day returned, they recommenced; so that the case is as though he who said thus meant, The time of the صَبَاح [or morning] has come, therefore prepare yourselves for fighting. (JM.) صُبَاحٌ ذ The شُعلَة [or lighted wick] of a قِنْدِيل [or lamp]. (K.) [See also مِصْبَاحٌ.] -A2- And I. q. صَبِيحٌ, q. v.
