(TA.) غَزَلٌ ذ , as expl. by 'Abd-El-Muttalib El-Baghdádee, in his Exposition of the نَقْدُ الشِعْرِ of Kudámeh, signifies The talk, and actions, and circumstances, occurring between the lover and the object of love; differing somewhat from تَشْبِيبٌ, which is a celebrating of the person and qualities of the beloved; and from نَسِيبٌ, which is a mentioning of the state, or condition, of the نَاسِب [himself], and of the object of the نَسِيب, and of all the affairs, or events, occurring between them two, [in the prelude of an ode,] thus including the meaning of تَشْبِيبٌ, and being a mentioning of غَزَل: accord. to Kudámeh, it signifies an inclining to foolish and youthful conduct, or a manifesting of passionate love, and becoming notorious for affections to women: (TA:) or it is the subst. from 3 [as such signifying talk, and amatory and enticing conduct, with women; or play, sport, dalliance, or wanton conduct, and amorous talk, with women]; (S, K;) as also ↓ مَغْزَلٌ : (K:) or play, sport, or diversion, with women: (ISd, TA:) or the talk of young men and [or with] young women: (Msb:) or, accord. to the leading authorities in polite literature, and those who have made the language to be their study, [or rather accord. to a loose and post-classical usage,] it signifies, like نَسِيبٌ, praise of what are apparent of the menbers of the object of love: or the mention of the days of union and of disunion: or the like thereof.

[of pane.] is غِزْلَةٌ and [of mult.] غِزْلانٌ.

The pls. غُزَّلٌ and غَوَازِلُ are applied as epithets to women: (K, TA:) but the former is also applied to men, and is of a measure more usual as that of the pl. of the mase. act. part. n. than of the fem. (TA.) أَغْزَلُ مِنْ عَنْكَبُوتٍ ذ , from the act of spinning, (Meyd,) or from the act of weaving [the web], (O.) is a prov. [meaning More practised, or skilled, in weaving than a spider]: and so مِنْ سُرْفَةٍ [than a سُرْفَة, q. v.]. (Meyd.) ― -b2- And one says also, أَغْزَلُ مِنِ ا@مْرِئِ القَيْسِ, (S, Meyd, O,) likewise a prov., meaning [More practised, or skilled,] in the celebrating of the person and qualities of the beloved in verse [than Imra-el-Keys]. (Meyd.) ― -b3- And [hence,] أَغْزَلُ مِنَ الحُمَّى (assumed tropical:) [More frequent in visiting, or more habitual, and more recurrent, than the fever]; a saying of the Arabs, by which they mean that it [the fever] is a frequent visiter of the sick person, recurrent to him; as though passionately loving him: thus, correctly, as in the L: in the K it is said that الأَغْزَلُ applied to the fever (الحُمَّى [though this is fem.]) means such as is a frequent visiter of the sick person; recurrent. (TA.) ― -b4- And أَغْزَلُ مِنْ فُرْعُلٍ [More confounded and perplexed than a young one of the hyena]; from الغَزَلُ as signifying “ the being confounded and perplexed ” like as is the dog (Meyd, O, K) when pursuing the young gazelle; for it may be that the فرعل becomes in the like state in pursuing the object of its chase: (Meyd:) or فرعل was a man of ancient times, and this saying (which is a prov., Meyd) is like أَغْزَلُ مِنِ ا@مْرِئِ القَيْسِ.

KL:) Fr says that ↓ مُغْزَلٌ is the original form, from أُغْزِلَ “ it was made to turn round ” or “ revolve ” [or “ was twirled ”]; (S, TA;) but the dammeh was deemed by the Arabs difficult of pronunciation, and therefore they said مِغْزَلٌ, and in like manner مِصْحَفٌ and مِخْدَعٌ and مِجْسَدٌ and مِطْرَفٌ: accord. to IAth, مِغْزَلٌ signifies the instrument [with which one spins]; and ↓ مَغْزَلٌ , the place of the غَزْل [which means the act of spinning and the span thread or yard]; and ↓ مُغْزَلٌ , the place in which (فِيهِ [or this may here mean upon which]) the غَزْل [i. e. spun thread or yarn] is put: (TA:) pl. مَغَازِلُ. (MA.) أَعْرى مِنْ مِغْزَلٍ is a prov. [meaning More naked than a spindle]. (Meyd.) And one says, صَاحِبُ الغَزَلِ أَضَلُّ مِنْ سَاقِ مِغْزَلٍ [The practiser of the talk and actions &c. usual between the lover and the object of love is more erring than the shank (i. e. pin) of a spindle), of which the error is its [aiding in] clothing mankind while it is [itself] naked.

(MA.) مُغَيْزِلٌ ذ A slender cord (حَبْلٌ دَقِيقٌ) [so in copies of the K, and in the CK, but in the latter المُغْتَزَلُ is put for المُغَيْزِلُ: in my MS. copy of the K, المُغَيْزِلُ جَبَلٌ دَقِيقٌ, and this I think to be the correct reading. meaning El-Mugheyzil is a certain slender mountain]: ISd says, I think it to be likened to the مِغْزَل, because of its slenderness; adding that El-Hirmázee has mentioned it. (TA. [A verse cited by El-Hirmázee is there given as an ex.; mentioning the day of المُغَيْزِل, app. as the day of the separation of a lover from his beloved; and it is a common custom of the Arabs to call the day of an event the day of the place where it occurred.]) مَغَازِلِىٌّ ذ : see مِغْزَلِىٌّ.
