(O, K.) فَجْرٌ ذ [Daybreak; dawn;] the light of morning; (Mgh, K;) because it is a cleaving of the darkness from before the light; (Mgh;) i. e., the redness of the sun in the darkness of night; (K;) the فَجْر in the end of the night is like the شَفَق in the beginning thereof: (S, O:) it is twofold: the first is called الفَجْرُ الكَاذِبُ [the false dawn]; that which rises without extending laterally, (المُسْتَطِيلُ, Mgh, Msb,) which appears black, presenting itself like an obstacle (مُعْتَرِضًا) [on the horizon]: (Msb:) [see ذَنَبُ السِّرْحَانِ, in art. سرح:] the second is called الفَجْرُ الصَّادِقُ [the true dawn]; which is the rising and spreading [dawn], (المُسْتَطِيرُ, Mgh, Msb,) which appears rising, and fills the horizon with its whiteness; and this is what is called عَمُودُ الصُّبْحِ; rising after the former has disappeared; and by its rising the day commences, and everything by which fasting would be broken becomes unlawful to the faster.

” [And verily, or often, I practise liberality, or bounty, while my property is not abundant]. (TA.) فُجَرُ ذ : see فَاجِرٌ, latter half. فَجْرَةُ ذ is a proper name, [i. e. an attributive proper name,] imperfectly decl., like بَرَّةُ; [and signifies the same as الفَجْرَةُ and فَجَارِ;] and ↓ فَجَارِ is altered from فَجْرَةٌ, (IJ, TA,) or from الفَجْرَةُ, (Sb, TA,) and is a subst. in the sense of الفُجُورُ [i. e.

(TA.) فُجْرَةٌ ذ : see مَفْجَرٌ, in two places. فِجْرَةٌ ذ The last of a woman's children; like as زِنْيَةٌ signifies the “ last of a man's children. ” (TA in art. زنى.) فَجَارِ ذ : see فَجْرَةُ, in two places: ― -b2- and see فَاجِرٌ, last sentence but one. فِجَارٌ ذ [a pl. of which the sing. is not mentioned] Roads, or ways; (K, TA;) like فِجَاجٌ [pl. of فَجٌّ, q. v.].

(TA.) ― -b2- And فِجَارَاتُ العَرَبِ signifies The vyings of the Arabs in glorying, or boasting.
