بَرَكَ بر برك بركة , (S, Msb, K,) aor. بَرُكَ , (S, TA,) inf. n. بُرُوكٌ (S, Mgh, Msb, K) and تَبْرَاكٌ, (K,) said of a camel, (S, Mgh, Msb,) i. q. اِسْتَنَاخَ [i. e. He lay down, or kneeled and lay down, upon his breast, with his legs folded]; (S, K;) he made his breast to cleave to the ground; (Mgh;) he fell upon his بَرْك, i. e. breast; (Msb;) he threw his برك, i. e. breast, upon the ground; (TA;) and in like manner, ↓ برّك , (TA, and so in some copies of the K,) inf. n. تَبْرِيكٌ. (TA.) And بَرَكَتِ النَّعَامَةُ The ostrich lay upon its breast. (TA.) And بَرَكَ is also said of a lion, and of a man. (K voce ربض.) [Of the latter, one also says, بَرَكَ عَلَى رُكْبَتَيْهِ He fell, or set himself, upon his knees; he kneeled.] The بُرُوك of a man praying, which is forbidden, is The putting down the hands before the knees, after the manner of the camel [when he lies down; for the latter falls first upon his knees, and then upon his stiflejoints]. (Mgh.) ― -b2- Hence, i. e., from the verb said of a camel, inf. n. بُرُوكٌ, (TA,) He, or it, (i. e. anything, S,) was, or became, firm, steady, steadfast, or fixed; continued, remained, or stayed; (S, K;) in a place: (TK:) [and so, app., with بَرِكَ for its aor.; for] you say, بَرَكَ لِلْقِتَالِ, aor. بَرِكَ , [He was, or became, firm, &c., for the purpose of fighting,] and in like manner بَرِكَ, aor. بَرَكَ . (TA. [See also a similar signification of 8.]) ― -b3- (assumed tropical:) It (the night) was, or became, long, or protracted; as though it did not quit its place. (A and TA in art. قعس.) ― -b4- See also 8, in two places. 2 بَرَّكَ see 1. -A2- تَبْرِيكٌ also signifies The praying for بَرَكَة, (S, K, TA,) for a man, &c. (TA.) You say, بَرَّكْتُ عَلَيْهِ, inf. n. تَبْرِيكٌ, I said to him, بَارَكَ ا@للّٰهَ عَلَيْكَ [or فِيكَ &c., God bless thee! &c.]. (TA.) And برّك علي الطَّعَامِ He prayed for, or invoked, a blessing on the food. (TK.) 3 بارك عَلَيْهِ بارك عليه بارك علية He kept, or applied himself, constantly, or perseveringly, to it; (Lh, K;) namely, an affair, (TA in art. حفظ,) or commerce, or traffic, &c. (Lh, TA.) -A2- بارك ا@للّٰهُ فِيكَ, (Fr, S, Msb, K,) and لَكَ, and عَلَيْكَ, (S, K,) and بَارَكَكَ, (Fr, S, K,) inf. n. مُبَارَكَةٌ, (TK,) [God bless, beatify, felicitate, or prosper, thee;] God put in thee, (TA,) give thee, make thee to possess, (T, K,) بَرَكَة [i. e. a blessing, good of any kind, prosperity or good fortune, increase, &c.]. (TA, TK.) بَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمِّدٍ وَ عَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ (in a trad., TA,) means Continue Thou, or perpetuate Thou, (O God,) to Mohammad and to the family of Mohammad the eminence and honour which Thou hast given them: (K, TA:) [or still bless or beatify, or continue to bless or beatify, Mohammad &c.: though it may well be rendered simply bless or beatify &c.:] Az says that it is from بَرَكَ said of a camel, meaning “he lay down upon his breast in a place and clave thereto.” (TA.) And اَللّٰهُمَ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِى المَوْتِ, in another trad., means [O God, bless us] in the state to which death will bring us. (TA.) The Arabs say to the beggar, بُورِكَ فِيكَ [Mayest thou be blest; and, in the present day, اَللّٰه يُبَارِك فِيك God bless thee]; meaning thereby to repel him; not to pray for him: and by reason of frequency of usage of this phrase, they have made ↓ بُورِك a noun: a poet [in Har شريش العدوى (app. Sherees, not Shereesh, El-'Adawee), in the TA Aboo-Fir'own,] says, “ تَظُنُّ أَنَّ بُورِكًا يَكْفِينِى
إِِذَا خَرَجْتُ بَاسِطًا يَمِينِى
” [She imagines that the saying “Mayest thou be blest” will suffice me when I go forth stretching out my right hand for an alms]. (Har p. 378. [This verse is differently cited in the TA; for there, instead of تظنّ and خرجت, we find تُحِبُّ and غَدَوْتُ.]) ― -b2- [You also say of a man, بارك فِيهِ, and لَهُ, &c., meaning He blessed him; i. e. he prayed God to bless him.] ― -b3- See also 6. 4 ابركهُ أبرك أبركه ابركه ابركة برك He made him (namely, a camel,) to lie down [or kneel and lie down] upon his breast. (S, K.) You say, أَبْرَكْتُهُ فَبَرَكَ I made him to lie down upon his breast, and he lay down upon his breast: but this is rare: the more common phrase is أَنْخَتُهُ فَا@سْتَنّاخَ. (S.) -A2- See also 8. -A3- مَا أَبْرَكَهُ [How blessed is he, or it!] is an instance of a verb of wonder with a passive meaning [and irregularly derived]. (TA.) 5 تبرّك بِهِ تبرك به تبرك بة i. q. تَيَمَّنَ بِهِ [He had a blessing; and he was, or became, blest; by means of him, or it: so accord. to explanations of تَبَرُّكْ in the KL: but very often signifying he looked for a blessing by means of him, or it; he regarded him, or it, as a means of obtaining a blessing; he augured good from him, or it; تيمّن به being opposed to تَشَأَّمَ به; as in the K in art. طير, and in Bd in xvii. 14, &c.]: (S, K:) and ↓ تبارك بِالشَّيْءِ He augured good from the thing. (Lth, K.) One says so of a man. (K in art. مسح.) And one says, تبرّك بِا@سْمِ ا@للّٰهِ [He looked for a blessing by means of uttering the name of God, or saying بِسْمِ ا@للّٰهِ]. (Ksh, on the بسملة; &c.) 6 تبارك بارى بارك تبار تبارك , accord. to Zj, is an instance of تَفَاعَلَ [as quasi-pass. of فَاعَلَ, i. e., of بَارَكَ, like as تَبَاعَدَ is of بَاعَدَ,] from البَرَكَةُ; and so say the lexicologists [in general]. (TA.) [Hence,] تبارك ا@للّٰهُ means [Blessed is, or be, God; or] hallowed is, or be, God; or far removed is, or be, He from every impurity or imperfection, or from everything derogatory from his glory; (K) or highly to be exalted, or extolled, is God; or highly exalted, or extolled, be He; (Abu-l-'Abbás, TA;) greatly to be magnified is God; or greatly magnified be He: (TA:) or i. q. ↓ بَارَكَ , like قَاتَلَ and تَقاَتَلَ, except that فَاعَلَ is trans. and تَفَاَعَلَ is intrans.: (S:) accord. to IAmb, it means [that] one looks for a blessing by means of [uttering] his name (يُتَبَرَّكُ بِا@سْمِهِ) in every affair, or case: accord. to Lth, it is a phrase of glorification and magnification: (TA:) or تبارك signifies He is abundant in good; from البَرَكَةُ, which is “abundance of good:” or He exceeds everything, and is exalted above it, in his attributes and his operations; because البَرَكَةُ implies the meaning of increase, accession, or redundance: or He is everlasting; syn. دَامَ; from بُرُوكُ الطَّيْرِ عَلَى المَآءِ [“the continuing of the birds at the water”]; whence البِرْكَةُ, because of the continuance of the water therein: the verb is invariable [when thus used, being considered as divested of all signification of time, or used in an optative sense]; and is not employed [in any of the senses above] otherwise than in relation to God: (Bd in xxv. 1:) it is an attributive peculiar to God. (K.) ― -b2- تبارك بِالشَّىْءِ: see 5. 8 ابترك أبتر أبترك ابترك بتر He (a man) threw his بَرْك [i. e. breast upon the ground (as the camel does in lying down), or upon some other thing]. (S.) ― -b2- He (a sword-polisher) leaned upon the polishing-instrument, (K,) on one side. (TA.) And He (a horse) inclined on one side in his running. (TA: [accord. to which, this is from what next follows.]) ― -b3- He hastened, or sped, and strove, laboured, or exerted himself, in running: (S, K:) and ↓ بَرَكَ , inf. n. بُرُوكٌ, (K,) or, as some say, this is a subst. from the former verb, (TA,) He strove, laboured, or exerted himself. (K.) ― -b4- (assumed tropical:) It (a cloud) rained continually, or incessantly: (TA:) and ابتركت السَّمَآءُ (assumed tropical:) the sky rained continually; as also ↓ بَرَكَت , (K,) and ↓ ابركت ; but Sgh says that the first of these three is the most correct. (TA.) And ابتركت السَّحَابَةُ (tropical:) The cloud rained vehemently. (K, TA.) ― -b5- ابترك فِى عِرْضِهِ, and عَلَيْهِ, (tropical:) He detracted from his reputation, censured him, or impugned his character, and reviled him, (K, TA,) and laboured in vituperating him. (TA.) ابتركوا فِى الحَرْبِ (tropical:) They fell upon their knees in battle, and so fought one another. (K, TA. [See بَرَكَآءُ, below.]) -A2- اِبْتَرَكْتُهُ I prostrated him, or threw him down prostrate, and put him beneath my بَرْك [i. e. breast]. (S.) بَرْكٌ بر برك بركة Many camels: (S, K:) or a herd of camels lying down upon their breasts: (K:) or any camels, males and females, lying down upon their breasts by the water or in the desert by reason of the heat of the sun or by reason of satiety: (TA:) or all the camels of the people of an encampment, that return to them from pasture in the evening, or afternoon, to whatever number they may amount, even if they be thousands: (K:) one thereof is termed ↓ بَارِكٌ ; (K;) the two words being like تَجْرٌ and تَاجِرٌ; (TA;) fem. ↓ بَارِكَةٌ : (K:) pl. بُرُوكٌ, (S, K,) i. e., pl. of بَرْكٌ. (S.) -A2- Also, (S, Msb, K,) and ↓ بِرْكَةٌ , which is with kesr, (S, K,) The breast (S, Msb, K) of a camel: (Msb, TA:) this is the primary signification: (TA:) as some say, the former signifies the breast of the camel with which he crushes a thing beneath it: (TA:) and (K) accord. to Lth, (TA,) the latter is the part next to the ground of the skin of the breast of the camel; (or, as in the 'Eyn, of the skin of the belly of the camel and of the portion of the breast next to it; TA;) as also the former: (K:) or, as some say, the former is the middle of the breast, where [the two prominences of flesh called] the فَهْدَتَانِ conjoin at their upper parts: (Ham p. 66:) or the latter is pl. of the former, like as حِلْيَةٌ is of حَلْىٌ: or the former is of man; and the latter, of others: or the former is the interior of the breast; (or, as Yaakoob says, the middle of the breast; TA;) and the latter, the exterior thereof: (K:) or the former is the breast, primarily of the camel, because camels lie down (تَبْرُكُ) upon the breast; and metaphorically of others. (Ham p. 145.) ― -b2- Hence, بَرْك الشِّتَآءِ (tropical:) The first part of winter; (L, TA; *) and the main part thereof. (L.) ― -b3- And hence, (TA,) البُرُوكُ is an appellation applied to (tropical:) The stars composing the constellation of the Scorpion, of which are الزُّبَانَى and الإِِكْلِيلُ and القَلْبُ and الشَّوْلَةُ [the 16th and 17th and 18th and 19th of the Mansions of the Moon], which rise [aurorally] in the time of intense cold; as is also الجُثُومُ: (L, TA: *) or, accord. to IF, to a نَوْء of the أَنْوَآء of الجَوْزَآء; because the انواء thereof do not set [aurorally] without there being during their period a day and a night in which the camels lie upon their breasts (تَبْرُكُ) by reason of the vehemence of the cold and rain. (TA.) بُرْكٌ بر برك بركة : see بُرَكٌ. بِرْكٌ بر برك بركة : see بِرْكَةٌ. بُرَكٌ بر برك بركة Remaining fixed (↓ بَارِكٌ ) at, or by, a thing. (IAar, K.) So in the phrase بُرَكُ عَلَى جَنْب الإِِنَآءِ [Remaining fixed at, or by, the side of the vessel], in a verse describing a [gluttonous] man, who swallows closely-consecutive mouthfuls. (IAar.) ― -b2- (assumed tropical:) Incubus, or nightmare; as also ↓ بَارُوكٌ . (K.) ― -b3- (tropical:) A coward; and so ↓ the latter word.

(AA.) بُرْكَةٌ برك بركه بركة ركة , (S, K,) or ↓ بُرَكَةٌ , (Msb,) A certain aquatic bird, white, (S, Msb, K,) and small: (K:) [the former applied in Barbary, in the present day, to a duck:] pl. بُرَكٌ (S, Msb, K) and بُرْكَانٌ and بِرْكَانٌ and [pl. of pauc.] أَبْرَاكٌ; (K;) or, in the opinion of ISd, ابراك and بركان are pls. of the pl.
