(S, Msb, K.) The Arabs, when they desired to set about an affair, passed by the places where birds lay upon the ground, and roused them, in order to learn thence whether they should proceed or refrain: but the law forbade this.

(TA.) See also 6. ― -b2- (tropical:) It (a crack in a wall) appeared and spread. (A. [See also استطال.]) It (a slit, or crack, for السُّوقُ in the K is a mistake for الشَّقُّ, or, accord. to the L, a crack in a wall, TA) rose, (K,) and appeared. (TA.)

And ↓ اُزْجُرْ أَحْنَآءَ طَيْرِكَ (tropical:) [alluding to the original signification of طَيْرٌ, namely, “ birds, ”] means جَوَانِبَ خِفَّتِكَ وَطَيْشِكَ [agreeing with an explanation of the same saying voce حِنْوٌ, q. v.]. (S.) ― -b2- Also طَيْرَةٌ (assumed tropical:) A slip; a stumble: hence the trad., إِِيَّاكَ وَطَيْرَاتِ الشَّبَابِ (assumed tropical:) Beware thou of the slips and stumbles of youth.

(O.) -A3- As applied to A balance, it is not of the language of the Arabs: (O:) [i. e., it is post-classical:] it means an assay-balance (مِيزَانٌ and مَعْيَارٌ) for gold; so called because of the form of a bird, or because of its lightness: or the balance for dirhems [or moneys] that is known among them [who use it] by the appellation of the قارسطون [meaning the χαριστίων of Archimedes, (as is observed in a note in p. 178 of vol. ii. of the sec. ed. of Har,) i. e. the hydrostatic balance]: or, accord. to El-Fenjedeehee, the tongue (لِسَات) of the balance. (Har pp. 549-50.) هُوَ طَيُّورٌ فَيُّورٌ ذ (assumed tropical:) He is sharp, and quick in returning [to a good state], or recovering [from his anger]. (K.) [See also طَيَّارٌ.] طَائِرٌ ذ A flying thing [whether bird or insect]: (Msb, * TA:) pl. ↓ طَيْرٌ , (S, Msb, K,) like as صَحْبٌ is pl. of صَاحِبٌ: (S, Msb:) or طَيْرٌ is originally an inf. n. of طَارَ: or an epithet contracted from طَيِّرٌ: (TA:) or a quasi-pl. n.; (Mgh, TA;) and this is the most correct opinion: (TA:) [but see, below, a reason for considering it originally an inf. n.:] and طَائِرٌ may also be quasi-pl. n., like جَامِلٌ and بَاقِرٌ: (TA:) ↓ طَيْرٌ is also sometimes used as a sing.; (Ktr, AO, S, Mgh, Msb, K;) as in the Kur iii. 43 [and v. 110], accord. to one reading: (S:) but ISd says, I know not how this is, unless it be meant to be [originally] an inf. n.: (TA:) [for an inf. n. used as an epithet is employed as sing. and pl.:] or طَائِرٌ, only, is used as a sing., (Th, IAmb, Msb,) by general consent; and AO once said so in common with others: (Th:) but ↓ طَيْرٌ has a collective, or pl., signification: (IAmb, Msb:) and is fem.: (Mgh:) or is more frequently fem. than masc.: (IAmb, Msb:) the pl. of طَيْرٌ is طُيُورٌ [a pl. of mult.] and أَطْيَارٌ [a pl. of pauc.]: (S, Msb, K:) or طُيُورٌ may be pl. of طَائِرٌ, like as سُجُودٌ is pl. of سَاجِدٌ: (TA:) طَائِرَةٌ is seldom applied to the female. (IAmb, Msb.) ― -b2- [الطَّائِر is a name of (assumed tropical:) The constellation Cygnus; also called الدَّجَاجَةُ.] ― -b3- هُوَ سَاكِنُ الطَّائِرِ means (tropical:) He is grave, staid, sedate, (K,) or motionless; so that if a bird alighted upon him, it would be still; for if a bird alight upon a man, and he move in the least, the bird flies away. (TA.) Of the same kind also is the saying, رُزِقَ فُلَانٌ سُكُونَ الطَّائِرِ وَخَفْضَ الجِنَاحِ (tropical:) [Such a one was endowed, or has been endowed, with gravity and gentleness]. (TA.) And طُيُورُهُمْ سَوَاكِنُ (tropical:) They are remaining fixed, settled, or at rest: and شَالَتْ نَعَامَتُهُمْ signifies the contrary. (A, TA.) And ↓ كَأَنَّ عَلَى رُؤُسِهِمُ الطَّيْرَ (tropical:) [As though birds were on their heads] is said of a people, meaning them to be motionless by reason of reverence: (S, K:) it was said of the Companions of Mohammad, describing them as quiet and grave [in his presence], without levity: and the origin of the saying is this: that birds alight only upon a thing that is still and inanimate: (TA:) or that the crow alights upon the head of the camel, and picks from it the ticks, (S, K,) and the young ones thereof, (S,) and the camel does not move (S, K) his head, (S,) lest the crow should take fright and fly away. (S, K.) In like manner, وَقَعَ طَائِرُهُ means (tropical:) He became grave, or sedate. (Meyd.) And طَائِرُهُطَارَ (tropical:) He became light, or inconstant: (Meyd:) and he became angry; (O, K, TA;) like ثَارَ ثَائِرُهُ and فَارَ فَائِرُهُ: (TA:) or he hastened, and was light, or active, or agile. (Har p. 561.) ― -b4- And it is said in a trad., الرُّؤْيَا عَلَى رِجْلِ طَائِرٍ مَا لَمْ تُعَبَّرْ (O, TA) (assumed tropical:) A dream is unsettled as to its result, or final sequel, while it is not interpreted. (TA.) [The Arabs hold that the result of a dream is affected by its interpretation: wherefore it is added in this tradition, and said in others also, that the dreamer should not relate his dream, unless to a friend or to a person of understanding.] ― -b5- ↓ عَيَّثَتْ طَيْرُهُ see expl. in art. عيث. ― -b6- طَائِرٌ also signifies A thing from which one augurs either good or evil; an omen, a bodement, of good or of evil: (K:) and ↓ طِيَرَةٌ (S, K) and ↓ طِيرَةٌ (K) and ↓ طِوَرَةٌ (IDrd, Sgh, K, TA [in the CK, in this art., erroneously, طُورَةٌ, but in art. طور it is طِوَرَة,]) a thing from which one augurs evil; an evil omen or bodement; (S, K, &c.;) contr. of فَأْلٌ: (TA:) and طَائِرٌ signifies fortune, (A'Obeyd, K, TA,) whether good or evil: (TA:) and especially evil fortune; ill luck; as also ↓ طَيْرٌ and ↓ طِيَرَةٌ : for the Arabs used to augur evil from the croaking of the crow, and from birds going towards the left: [see 5:] (TA:) and ↓ طِيَرَةٌ is an inf. n. [or rather a quasi-inf. n.] of تَطَيَّرَ, [q. v.,] (IAth,) and signifies auguration of evil. (Msb.) The Arabs used to say, to a man or other thing from which they augured evil, (TA,) طَائِرُ ا@للّٰهِ لَا طَائِرُكَ, (ISk, S, IAmb,) and طائرَ اللّٰه لا طائرَك, meaning What God doth and decreeth, not what thou dost and causest to be feared: (IAmb:) accord. to ISk, one should not say ا@للّٰهِطَيْرُ : (S:) but the Arabs are related to have said, also, لَا طَيْرَ إِِلَّا طَيْرُ ا@للّٰهِ [There is no evil fortune but that which is of God]; like as one says, لَا أَمْرَ إِِلَّا أَمْرُ ا@للّٰهِ. (As, S.) They also used to say, جَرَى لَهُ الطَّائِرُ بِأَمْرِ كَذَا [Fortune brought to him such an event]: and hence fortune, whether good or evil, is called طائر. (TA.) And it is said in the Kur [vii. 128], إِِنَّمَا طَائِرُهُمْ عِنْدَ ا@للّٰهِ, meaning Their evil fortune, which will overtake them, is only that which is threatened to befall them in the latter state, [with God,] and not that which befalls them in the present state of existence: (TA:) or the cause of their good and evil is only with God; i. e., it is his decree and will: or the cause of their evil fortune is only with God; i. e., it is their works, which are registered with Him. (Bd.) It is said in a trad., that Mohammad liked what is termed فَأْل, and disliked what is termed ↓ طِيَرَة : (S:) and in another, that he denied there being any such thing as the latter. (TA.) -A2- Also The means of subsistence; syn. رِزْقٌ. (K:) or misery: or happiness: every one of these three significations has been assigned to it in the Kur xvii. 14: in which, accord. to AM, it is meant that God has decreed to every man happiness or misery, according as He foresaw that he would be obedient or disobedient. (TA.) [See also what immediately follows.] -A3- Also The actions of a man which are [as it were] attached as a necklace to his neck. (S, Msb, K.) And this is [also said by some to be] its signification in the Kur xvii. 14. (Jel.) [The actions of a man are the cause of his happiness or misery.] -A4- الطَّائِرُ signifies also The brain. (AAF, L, K.) أَطْيَرُ مِنْ عُقَابٍ ذ [More swift of flight than an eagle] is a prov. said of an عقاب because it may be in the morning in El-' Irák and in the evening in El- Yemen. (Meyd.) مَطَارٌ ذ [A place to or from which a bird or other thing flies: in the phrase طَارَ قَلْبِى مَطَارَهُ, (see 1,) it lit. signifies a place to which one would fly:] a place of flying. (TA.) ― -b2- أَرْضٌ مَطَارَةٌ [and ↓ مُطِيرَةٌ (see 4)] A land abounding with birds. (S, K.) -A2- حَفْرٌ مَطَارٌ, (O,) and بِئْرٌ مَطَارَةٌ, (O, K,) [A pit, or cavity, and a well,] wide in the mouth. (O, K.) مُطَارٌ ذ Made to fly away: En-Nábighah says, “ وَلِرَهْطِ حَرَّابٍ وَقَدٍّ سُورَةٌ
فِى المَجْدِ لَيْسَ غُرَابُهُ بِمُطَارِ
” [And to the family of Harráb and Kadd belongs an eminence in glory of which they fear not any diminution: lit., of which the crow is not made to fly away; the greatness of their glory being likened to abundant seed-produce, as has been shown above: see 2]: (S:) A 'Obeyd says that Harráb and Kadd were two men of the BenooAsad. (TA in art. قد.) ― -b2- See also طَيَّارٌ. مُطِيرَةٌ ذ : see مَطَارٌ. مُطَيَّرٌ ذ A sort of [garment of the kind called] بُرْد (O, K) having upon it the forms of birds. (O.) -A2- And Aloes-wood: (K:) or a certain preparation thereof: (AHn, TA:) or such as is مُطَرًّى [i. e. mixed with some other odoriferous substance]; formed by transposition from the latter word; (O, K;) but this pleased not ISd: (TA:) or aloes-wood split and broken in pieces. (O, K. *) مُسْتَطَارٌ ذ [Made to fly. ― -b2- And hence,] (assumed tropical:) A horse that hastens, or is quick, in running: (K:) that runs quickly. (TS, L.) It is contracted by the poet 'Adee into مُسْطَار, or مُصْطَار. (TA.) And مُسْطَارٌ for مُسْتَطَارٌ is applied as an epithet to wine. (TA. [No ex. is there given to indicate the meaning.]) مُسْتَطِيرٌ ذ (tropical:) Spreading; applied to dust; as also ↓ طَيَّارٌ ; (TA;) and to hoariness; and to evil: (L:) rising and spreading; (K;) whereof the light spreads in the horizon; applied to the true dawn, which renders it unlawful to the faster to eat or drink or indulge in other carnal pleasure, and on the appearance of which the prayer of daybreak may be performed, and which is termed الخِيْطُ الأَبْيَضُ: that to which the epithet مُسْتَطِيل is applied is [the false dawn,] that which is likened to the tail of the wolf (ذَنَبُ السِّرْحَانِ), and is termed الخِيْطُ الأَسْوَدُ; and this does not render anything unlawful to the faster. (TA.) ― -b2- Also A dog excited by lust; (Lth, O, K;) and so a camel; (K;) or the epithet applied in this sense to the latter is هَائِجٌ. (Lth, O, TA.)
