1 جَنَى الثَّمَرَةَ جني الثمره جني الثمرة , (S, Mgh, Msb, K,) aor. جَنِىَ , (S, Msb,) inf. n. جَنًى, (S, TA,) or جَنْىٌ, (so accord. to one copy of the S, and written in the accus. case جنيا in the Ham p. 355,) and جِنَايَةٌ, (Ham ib., but there without any vowel-signs,) He gathered, plucked, or took from the tree, the fruit; (Mgh, TA;) i. q.اجتناها (S, Msb, K) and ↓ تجنّاها : (K:) and in like manner one says of a thing similar to fruit. (TA.) One says also, جَنَاهَا لَهُ and جَنَاهُ إِِيَّاهَا [He gathered it, plucked it, or took it from the tree, for him]. (A'Obeyd, K.) And جَنَيْتُكَ أَكْمُؤًا [I gathered for thee truffles]. (TA.) And جَنَى ذَهَبًا He collected gold from its mine. (TA.) ― -b2- Aboo-Dhu-eyb uses this verb metaphorically, in the phrase جَنَى العُلَى, meaning (tropical:) [He acquired] eminence, or nobility. (TA.) ― -b3- You also say, جَنَى عَلَيْهِ, (S,) or عَلَى قَوْمِهِ, (Msb,) inf. n. جِنَايَةٌ, (S, Msb,) (tropical:) He committed, [against him, or] against his people, or party, a crime, or an offence for which he should be punished; (Msb;) as also ↓ جاناهُ [or جانى قَوْمِهِ]: (TK in art. جر:) [and (tropical:) he brought an injury upon him, or them:] and جَنَى الذَّنْبِ عَلَيْهِ, aor. جَنِىَ , inf. n. جِنَايَةٌ, (K,) with kesr, (TA,) (tropical:) He committed the crime, offence, or injurious action, against him; syn. جَرَّهُ إِِلَيْهِ: (K: [see art. جر:]) thus used, also, the verb is metaphorical, from جَنَى الثَّمَرَةَ: (Er-Rághib, TA:) and so in the phrase, جَنَى شَرًّا, meaning (tropical:) He brought to pass an evil thing or action. (Mgh.) [See also جِنَايَةٌ, below.] It is said in a trad., لَا يَجْنِى جَانٍ إِِلَّا عَلَى نَفْسِهِ (assumed tropical:) [An injurer shall not bring injury save on himself]; meaning that one shall not be prosecuted for an injurious action committed by another, of his relations or of others. (TA.) And a poet says, “ جَانِيكَ مَنْ يَجْنِى عَلَيْكَ وَقَدْ
تُعْدِي الصِّجَاحَ فَتَجْرَبُ الجُرْبُ
” [which may be rendered, (assumed tropical:) Thine injurer whom thou shouldst punish is he who brings an injury upon thee: but sometimes the mangy camels infect the sound ones so that these become mangy; and thus a criminal sometimes brings punishment upon his relations: for] A'Obeyd says that جانيك من يجنى عليك is a prov. applied to the case of a man who is punished for an injurious action; because brothers [sometimes] bring injury upon a man [by occasioning his being punished for an injurious action which they have themselves committed], as the latter hemistich of the verse cited above indicates: but AHeyth says that this prov. means الجَانِى لَكَ الخَيْرَ مَنْ يَجْنِى عَلَيْكَ الشَّرَّ [The person bringing thee good is he who brings, or will bring, upon thee evil: perhaps intended as a caution; for the Arabs often suspect that a benefactor has some evil intention]: and he cites the following hemistich: “ تُعْدِي الصِّحَاحَ مَبَارِكُ الجُرْبِ
” [meaning Sometimes the places where the mangy camels lie down, and which afford benefit to other camels, infect the sound ones]. (TA. [See also Freytag's Arab. Prov., i. 298.]) You say also, جَنَيْتَ هٰذَا عَلَى نَفْسِكَ [Thou hast brought this as an injury upon thyself]. (K in art. جل.) 3 جانى عَلَيْهِ جاني عليه جاني علية , inf. n. مُجَانَاةٌ, He accused him of a جِنَايَة [or crime, &c.]. (TA.) ― -b2- See also 1. 4 اجنى أج أجنى أجني اجنى اجني جنى جنين آجن آجني آجنيي said of a tree, (S, K,) or of a palmtree, (Msb,) It had ripe fruit: (S:) or it attained to the time for the gathering of its fruit: (Msb:) or it attained to maturity: (K:) or, said of a tree, it had fruit to be gathered and eaten: and, said of fruit, it became ripe: (TA:) and, said of grass, or herbage, it became abundant. (KL.) ― -b2- And اجنتِ الأَرْضُ The land had much جَنًى, (S, Msb, K,) i. e. herbage, and truffles, and the like. (S.) 5 تَجَنَّىَ see 1. ― -b2- تجنّى عَلَيْهِ, (S, * K,) or تجنّى عليه ذَنْبًا, (TA,) (assumed tropical:) He accused him of a crime, an offence, or an injurious action, that he had not committed; (S, K;) i. e. he forged against him the charge of his having committed a crime, &c., he being guiltless [thereof]: (TA:) النَّجَنِّى being like التَّجَرُّمُ. (S.) You say also, يَتَجَنَّى عَلَيْنَا مَا لَمْ نَجْنِهِ [He accuses us of committing what we did not commit]. (Abu-l-'Abbás, TA in art. جرم.) 8 إِِجْتَنَىَ see 1. ― -b2- اِجْتَنَيْنَا مَآءِ مَطَرٍ We came to rainwater, and drank it: (K:) a phrase mentioned with approval by IAar, but not explained by him: thought by ISd to have this meaning. (TA.) جَنًى جن جنى جني [in the CK جَنِىٌّ] Whatever is gathered, or plucked; as also ↓ جَنَاةٌ : (K:) or whatever is gathered, or plucked, from trees, (S,) &c.; (so in a copy of the S;) as also ↓ جَنَاةٌ : (S:) so that these two words are of the same class as حِقٌّ and حِقَّةٌ: or the latter of them is a n. un.: (TA:) or the former signfies what is gathered from trees while fresh; (Msb;) as also ↓ جَنِىٌّ : (Msb:) or this last is an epithet applied to fruit, signifying just gathered or plucked; (S, K;) or gathered, or plucked, while fresh: (TA:) and ↓ مَجْنًى , also, pl. مَجَانٍ, signifies fruit gathered or plucked: (Har p. 369:) جَنًى also signifies fruit [ready to be gathered or plucked]; so in the Kur lv. 54: (Jel:) and is applied to fresh ripe dates: (Fr, K:) and grapes: (TA:) and truffles, and the like: (S:) and even cotton: (TA:) and herbage: (S:) and gold, (K,) which is collected from its mine: (TA:) and cowries, (K,) as though gathered from the sea: (TA:) and honey, (K,) when it is gathered: (TA:) pl. أَجْنَآءٌ (K) and أَجْنٍ, originally أَجْنُىٌ.

إِِذْكُلُّ جَانٍ يَدُهُ إِِلَى فِيهِ
” [This is what I have gathered, and the best of it is in it; when every gatherer but myself has his hand to his mouth]: or, accord. to one reading, وَ هِجَانُهُ فِيهِ (which has the same meaning, TA in art. هجن): a prov., ascribed by Ibn-El-Kelbee to 'Amr Ibn-' Adee El-Lakhmee, the son of the daughter of Jedheemeh: he says that Jedheemeh had ordered the people to gather for him truffles, and some of them ate the best that they found; but ' Amr brought to him the best that he found, and addressed to him these words: and 'Alee is related to have repeated them on an occasion of his entering the government-treasury; meaning that he had not defiled himself with anything of the tribute belonging to the Muslims, but had put it in its places.
