(AHeyth, TA.) ― -b2- [Hence,] دَهَنَ الأَرْضَ, said of rain, (S, K,) (tropical:) It moistened the ground slightly, or a little: (S, TA:) or it moistened the surface of the ground. (K.) ― -b3- And [hence also,] دَهَنْتُهُ بِالعَصَا (S, K *) (tropical:) I struck him (S, K, TA) gently (TA) with the staff, or stick; (S, K, TA;) like as one says, مَسَحَهُ بِالعَصَا and بِالسَّيْفِ. (TA.) And دَهَنْتُهُ بِالعَصَا دَهَنَاتٍ (tropical:) I struck him [gently] with the staff or stick [some gentle strokes: دَهَنَاتٌ being pl. of ↓ دَهْنَةٌ , which is the inf. n. of un.]. (So in a copy of the S.) ― -b4- [Hence, likewise,] دَهَنَ signifies also He (a man, TA) played the hypocrite. (K, TA.) And you say, دَهَنَ فُلَانًا, aor. دَهُنَ , inf. n. دَهْنٌ, meaning He acted with such a one hypocritically. (TK. [See also 3.]) -A2- دَهُنَتْ, (K, and so in more than three copies of the S,) and دَهَنَتْ, aor. دَهُنَ ; (K, and so in some copies of the S in lieu of دَهُنَتْ;) and دَهِنَتْ, aor. دَهَنَ ; (AZ, K;) inf. n. [of the first] دَهَانَةٌ (S, K) and [of the second or third or of both] دِهَانٌ; (K;) (tropical:) She (a camel) had little milk. (AZ, S, K, TA.) [See دَهِينٌ.] ― -b2- And دَهِنَ, inf. n. دَهْنٌ, [or, as appears to be probable from what follows and from general analogy, دَهَنٌ,] said of a man, (assumed tropical:) He was, or became, weak: and also, foolish, or stupid: and [app. soft, flaccid, or flabby; for] دَهَنٌ signifies the being soft, flaccid, or flabby; or softness, flaccidity, or flabbiness. (JK.) [See دَهِينٌ.] 2 دَهَّنَ see 1, first sentence. 3 مُدَاهَنَهٌ مداهن مداهنه مداهنة and ↓ إِِدْهَانٌ signify the same; (S, Msb, K;) i. e. (tropical:) The endeavouring to conciliate; syn. مُصَانَعَةٌ: (S, TA:) or the making peace with another; or becoming reconciled with another: (Msb:) or the pretending the contrary of, or what is different from, that which one conceals in his mind: (K:) and the former signifies also the acting with dishonesty, or dissimulation: or ↓ the latter has this signification; and the former signifies the striving to outwit, deceive, beguile, or circumvent; syn. مُوَارَبَةٌ: (TA:) or دَاهَنْتُ signifies I hid, concealed, or covered; syn. وَارَيْتُ [accord. to four copies of the S; but probably this is a mistranscription for وَارَبْتُ, meaning I strove to outwit, deceive, beguile, or circumvent, as is indicated in the TA]; and ↓ أَدْهَنْتُ signifies I acted with dishonesty, or dissimulation: (S:) or ↓ إِِدْهَانٌ is [originally] like تَدْهِينٌ [as has been stated above]: but is used as denoting the act of treating with gentleness or blandishment, soothing, coaxing, wheedling, beguiling, or deluding; and abstaining from restraint or prohibition: (AHeyth, TA:) or it originally signified the anointing such a thing as a hide with some oil or the like: and as such a thing is rendered soft to the sense [of feeling], it was used tropically, or metaphorically, to denote ideal softness, absolutely: hence, the treating with gentleness or blandishment, soothing, coaxing, wheedling, beguiling, or deluding, was termed مُدَاهَنَةٌ: then this tropical signification became commonly known, and conventionally regarded as proper: and then the word [مداهنة or ↓ ادهان , or rather each of these words,] was tropically used as signifying the holding a thing in light, or little, or mean, estimation, or in contempt: so in the 'Ináyeh. (MF, TA.) It is said in the Kur [lxviii. 9], ↓ وَدُّوالَوْ تُدْهِنُ فَيُدْهِنُونَ (tropical:) They wish that thou wouldst endeavour to conciliate [them], and in that case they will endeavour to conciliate [thee]: (S, TA: *) or that thou wouldst be soft, pliant, or gentle, in thy religion, and in that case they will be soft, pliant, or gentle: (TA:) or that thou wouldst be soft, pliant, or gentle, to them, and in that case they will be so to thee: (Jel:) or, accord. to Fr, that thou wouldst be an unbeliever, and they will be unbelievers. (TA.) 4 ادهن أد أدهن إِد إِدهن ادهن دهن ودى آد آدهن , inf. n. إِِدْهَانٌ: see 1, first sentence: and see 3, in six places. [See also its act. part. n., below.] ― -b2- الإِِدْهَانُ is also syn. with الإِِبْقَآءُ, which, accord. to IAmb, is the primary signification: in the copies of the K erroneously written الإِِنْقَآءُ. (TA.) One says, لَا تُدْهِنْ عَلَيْهِ, meaning لَا تُبْقِ عَلَيْهِ [Show not thou mercy to him; or pity not him; or pardon not him]. (IAmb, TA.) And مَا أَدْهَنْتَ إِِلَّا عَلَى نَفْسِكَ, i. e. مَا أَبْقَيْتَ [Thou didst not show, or hast not shown, mercy, save to thyself]. (Lh, TA.) ― -b3- One says also, أَدْهَنْتُ فِى أَمْرِهِ, meaning I fell short in his affair, or case. (JK.) -A2- And أُدْهِنَ He (a camel) was affected with the vertigo termed دُهْن.

(of دُهْنٌ, S, Msb, and Bd in lv. 37) is دِهَانٌ (S, Msb, K, and Bd ubi suprà) and أَدْهَانٌ; (K;) [the latter a pl. of pauc.; both pls. signifying kinds of oil &c.;] or ↓ الدِّهَانُ signifies that with which one anoints; (Bd ubi suprà) or it has this signification also: (TA:) you say, دَهَنْتُهُ بِالدِّهَانِ [meaning I anointed him with oils or with ointment]: (S, in which this is mentioned as an ex. of the pl. of دُهْنٌ:) and hence the prov. كَالدِّهَانِ عَلَى الوَبَرِ Like [ointment or] that with which one anoints [upon fur, or soft hair].
