1 دَحَرَهُ دحر دحره دحرة , (S, A, K,) aor. دَحَرَ , (K,) inf. n. دُحُورٌ (S, A, K) and دَحْرٌ, (T, K,) He (God, S) drove him away; expelled, or banished, him: he removed him; put, or placed, him at a distance, or away, or far away: (T, S, A, K:) he pushed, thrust, or repelled, him, (K,) with roughness, or violence, and ignominy. (TA.) It is said, in a form of prayer, اَلّٰهُمَّ ا@دْحَرْ عَنَّا الشَّيْطَانَ O God, drive away from us the devil. (TA.) دَحُورٌ دحور : see what next follows. دَاحِرٌ داحر and ↓ دَحُورٌ Driving away; expelling, or banishing: removing; putting or placing at a distance, or away, or far away: pushing, thrusting, or repelling, (K,) [with roughness, or violence, and ignominy: see the verb.] In the Kur [xxxvii. 8-9], some read وَيُقْذَفُونَ مِنْ كُلِّ جَانِبٍ دَحُورًا, meaning [And they shall be darted at from every side] with that which driveth away, or expelleth, &c.; as though it were said بِدَاحِرٍ, or بِمَا يَدْحَرُ: so says Fr; but he does not approve of this reading. (TA.) أَدْحَرُ ذ More [or most] violently and ignominiously repelled. (TA from a trad., cited voce أَدْحَقُ.) مَدْحَرَةٌ مدحره مدحرة [said in Har p. 210 to be syn. with the inf. n. دُحورٌ signifies A cause, or means, of driving away, &c.]. مَدْحُورٌ مدحور Driven, or removed, far away: so in the Kur vii. 17 and xvii. 19. (S.) And hence, الشَّيْطَانُ مَدْحُورٌ مِنْ رَحْمَةِ ا@للّٰهِ The devil is driven away, or banished, from the mercy of God. (A.)
