(TA.) -A2- فَرَضَ لَهُ, [aor. and] inf. n. as above, (K, &c.,) He apportioned to him [a thing]: he appointed to him [a thing]: (Bd in xxxiii. 38, and TA: *) because that which is apportioned, or appointed, [to a person] is cut off from the thing from which it is apportioned, or appointed: (TA:) he made [a thing] lawful, or allowable, to him; (Jel in xxxiii. 38, and Kull in p. 275, and TA; *) relating to a case into which a man has brought himself: (Kull:) this is said to be the meaning when the phrase فَرَضَ ا@للّٰهُ لَهُ occurs in the Kur: (TA:) he appointed, or assigned, to him a definite portion; (K;) as also لهافرض . (O, L, K.) You say فَرَضَ لَهُ فِى العَطَآءِ [He appointed, or assigned, to him a definite portion in the gift]. (As, S.) And فَرَضَ لَهُ فِى الدِّيوَانِ (As, S, A) [He appointed, or assigned, to him a definite portion in the register of soldiers or pensioners; or] he registered his stipend therein. (As, A, TA.) And فَرَضَهُ, (S,) and ↓ افرضهُ , (S, K,) He gave to him. (S, O, K.) ― -b2- فَرَضَ, (S, A, Mgh, Msb,) aor. as above, (TA,) and so the inf. n., (Msb, TA,) also signifies He (God, S, A, Mgh, Msb) made a thing, (S, TA,) or prayer, (A, Mgh,) or statutes or ordinances, (Msb,) obligatory, or binding, syn. أَوْجَبَ, (S, A, Mgh, Msb, TA,) by a known decree, (TA,) [or He imposed a thing &c.,] عَلَى إِِنْسَانٍ on a man, (TA,) or عَلَيْنَا on us; (S;) and so ↓ اِفْتَرَضَ : (S, A, Mgh, O, K:) or فَرْضٌ is like إِِيجَابٌ; but the latter is so termed in consideration of its befalling; and the former is so called in consideration of the sentence, or decree, respecting it: (B:) [this is said in books on the law, in explanation of the opinion of Aboo-Haneefeh, as opposed to that of Esh-Sháfi'ee: for] accord. to Esh-Sháfi'ee, these two terms are alike; (L, TA;) but accord. to Aboo-Haneefeh, the difference between الوَاجِبُ and الفَرْضُ is like the difference between heaven and earth: (TA:) this distinction, however, is founded upon contested derivations of the two terms: (Kull p. 276:) and it is said that wherever the phrase فَرَضَ ا@للّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ occurs, it means إِِيجَابٌ. (TA.) Also He (the apostle of God) instituted, or prescribed, [a thing as a statute, or an ordinance, or a command or prohibition;] syn. سَنَّ; (O, K;) on the authority of IAar alone: (O, TA:) but accord. to others, he made necessarily obligatory or binding; and this, says Az, is the obvious meaning. (TA.) Also He (a judge) decreed, or adjudged, [TA.) Also He (a judge) decreed, or adjudged, [a thing, as, for instance,] expenses [&c.]. (Msb.) Also He assigned, or appointed, a particular time for doing a thing; or he determined, defined, or limited, a thing as to time, or otherwise; the inf. n., فَرْضٌ, being syn. with تَوْقِيتٌ: (Ibn-'Arafeh, A, O, K:) as in the phrase فَمَنْ فَرَضَ فِيهِنَّ الحَجَّ [And whoso determineth the performance of the pilgrimage therein]; (Ibn-'Arafeh, O, K;) occurring in the Kur [ii. 193]; and in like manner it is expl. by Ibn- 'Arafeh as occurring in xxxiii. 38 of the Kur (O, TA:) but the phrase quoted above is also expl. as meaning and whoso maketh it obligatory, or binding, on himself to perform the pilgrimage therein, by his entering upon the state of إِِحْرَام. (TA.) ― -b3- سُورَةٌ أَنْزَلْنَاهَا وَفَرَضْنَاهَا, (K,) in the Kur, [commencing chap. xxiv.,] (TA,) means [This is a chapter which we have revealed and] in which we have set down the obligatory statutes: (O, K:) or in which we have bound you to do according to what is made obligatory therein: (Az, O:) or, as some read, ↓ وَفَرَّضْنَاهَا , (S, O, K, *) meaning and in which we have set down obligatory statutes, (O, L, K,) one after another: (O, K:) or which we have distinctly explained: (Az, S, O, K:) or we have distinctly explained what is in it, of lawful and unlawful [things]. (T, TA.) ― -b4- فَرْضٌ also signifies The act of reading, or reciting. (IAar, O, K.) You say, فَرَضْتُ جُزْئِى I read, or recited, my portion.

MF says that, accord. to IKtt, the verb is also written فَرَضَ, like كَتَبَ: but [says SM] what I find in his “ Kitáb el-Abniyeh ” is the mention of the two modes of writing in the instance of فرضت said of a cow; and the verb applied to a man he has not mentioned. (TA.) -A4- فَرَضَتْ, aor. فَرِضَ , inf. n. فُرُوضٌ; and فَرُضَتْ, inf. n. فَرَاضَةٌ; She (a cow) became old, aged, far advanced in age, (S, O, K,) or extremely old.

(TA.) -A2- I. q.مَفْرُوضٌ (A, Msb, K) [Apportioned: appointed; made lawful, or allowable: and] a thing made obligatory, or binding, by God; (S, A, O, K;) for neglecting which one will be punished; like وَاجِبٌ; accord. to EshSháfi'ee; (TA in art. وجب;) because it has marks and limits; (S, O, TA;) said to be from the same word signifying “ a mark, ” because it inseparably pertains to a man, like a mark; (TA;) or, as some say, because it necessarily pertains to a man like as does the فَرْض, i. e. notch, to the arrow; (O, TA;) as also ↓ مُفْتَرَضٌ : (TA:) pl. فُرُوضٌ. (Msb.) As a law-term, it is of two sorts, فَرْضُ عَيْنٍ and فَرْضُ كِفَايَةٍ: the former is That whereof the observance is obligatory on every one, and does not become of no force in respect of some in consequence of the observance [thereof] by some [others]; as religious belief, and the like: the latter is That whereof the observance is obligatory on the collective body of the Muslims, and, in consequence of the observance [thereof] by some, becomes of no force in respect of the rest; as warring against unbelievers, and the prayer over the dead in the bier. (KT.) You say, هٰذَا أَمْرٌ فَرْضٌ عَلَيْهِمْ, and ↓ مَفْرُوضٌ , and ↓ مُفْتَرَضٌ , This is [a thing] made obligatory, or binding, on them by God. (TA.) And حَقُّكَ فَرْضٌ, and ↓ مَفْرُوضٌ , and ↓ مُفْتَرَضٌ , Thy right, or due, is [a thing] made obligatory, or binding, by God.

(S, O, K. *) In the copies of the K, مَوْسُومَة is put by mistake for مَرْسُومَة. (TA.) You say, مَا أَصَبْتُ مِنْهُ فَرْضًا وَلَا قَرْضًا I did not obtain from him an assigned, or appointed, gift, or soldier's stipend, (S, O, TA,) nor a gift to be requited, or a loan. (O, TA.)

يُقَلِّبُ بِالكَفِّ فَرْضًا خَفِيفًا
” [I was sleepless by reason of it, it being (in its flickering) like the signalling of the announcer of tidings turning over and over with the hand a light shield]: one should not say قُرْصًا خفيفا. (S, O, TA: but my copies of the S have قَلَّبَ instead of يُقَلِّبُ.) [See also what follows.] ― -b2- And A stick, or piece of wood; syn. عُودٌ; thus [it means] in the verse (فِى البَيْتِ) accord. to El-Jumahee, (O, TA,) i. e. in the verse above-cited: (TA:) he says, الفَرْضُ فِى البَيْتِ عُودٌ: (O, TA:) whence the author of the K has been misled to explain الفَرْضُ as meaning عُودٌ مِنْ أَعْوَادِ البَيْتِ.

(TA.) ― -b4- And A piece of rag: another explanation heard by El-Jumahee. (O.) ― -b5- And A garment, or piece of cloth: (O, K:) a meaning mentioned by As on the authority of some one or more of the Arabs of the desert, of Hudheyl. (O.)
