1 مَنَّ عَلَيْهِ ذ , (S, M, Msb, K,) aor. مَنُ3َ , (Msb,) inf. n. مَنٌّ (S, M, Msb, K) and مِنِّينَى; (K;) and ↓ امتنّ ; (Msb;) He conferred, or bestowed, upon him, a favour, or benefit. (S, M, Msb, K.) You say, مَنَّ عَلَيْهِ شَيْأً, and بِشَىْءٍ, which latter is more common, and عليه بِهِامتنّ He conferred, or bestowed, a thing upon him as a favour. (Msb.) ― -b2- مَنَّ عَلَيْهِ, (S, M, Msb, K,) inf. n. مَنٌّ (T, Msb) or مِنَّةٌ; (S, K;) and ↓ امتن (S, M, Msb, K) and ↓ تمنّن ; (M;) He reproached him for a favour, or benefit, which he (the former) had conferred, or bestowed; (M;) he recounted his gifts or actions to him. (Msb.) Ex., عَلَيْهَا بِمَا مَهَرَهَااِمْتَنَّ [He reproached her for the dowry he had given her]. (K, art. مهر.) See Bd, ii. 264. See also an ex. in a verse cited voce سَرِفَ. 5 تَمَنَّ3َ see 1. 8 إِِمْتَنَ3َ see 1. مَنْ ذ [used for مَا in the sense of What? as in the following of El-Khansà, “ أَلَا مَنْ لِعَيْنِى لَا تَجِفُّ دُمُوعُهَا
O! what aileth mine eye, that its tears dry not? quoted in the TA, art. فثأ.] ― -b2- مَنْ: respecting its dual مَنَانْ and مَنَيْنْ, and its pl. مَنُونْ and مَنِينْ, see I'Ak, p. 319. ― -b3- مَنْ لِى بِكَذَا: see بِ (near the end of the paragraph). مِنْ ذ : ― -b2- زَيْدٌ أَعْقَلُ مِنْ أَنْ يَكْذِب means مِنَ الذَِّى يَكْذِبُ (Kull, p. 78) [i. e. Zeyd is more reasonable than he who lies: but, though this is the virtual meaning, the proper explanation, accord. to modern usage, is, that أَنْ is here for أَنَّ with the adjunct pronoun هُ; for in a phrase of this kind, an adjunct pronoun is sometimes expressed; so that the aor. must be marfooa; and the literal meaning is, Zeyd is more reasonable than that he will lie; which is equivalent to saying, Zeyd is too reasonable to lie. It may be doubted, however, whether a phrase of this kind be of classical authority. The only other instance that I have found is هُوَ أَحْصَنُ مِنْ أَنْ يْرَام وَأَعَزُّ مِن أَنْ يُضَام, in the TA, voce أَلْ. Accord. to modern usage, one may say, أَنْتَ أَعْقَلُ مِنْ أَنَّكَ تَفْعَلُ كَذَا, which virtually means Thou art too reasonable to do such a thing; and here we cannot substitute ا@لَّذِن for أَنّ. See أَنْ for أَنَّ.] ― -b3- أَخْزَى ا@للّٰهُ الكَاذِبَ مِنِّى وَمِنْكَ: see أَىٌّ ― -b4- لَقِيتُ مِنْهُ أَسَدًا: see أَسْدٌ: and لَقِيتُ ― -b5- مِنْهُ بَحْرًا; and رَأَيْتُ مِنْهُ بَحْرًا: see بحر ― -b6- مِنْ in the sense of عِنْدَ: see جَدٌّ ― -b7- جَرَى مِنْهُ مَجْرَى كَذَا: see 1 in art. جرى ― -b8- مِنْ and عَنْ, differences between: see عَنْ ― -b9- مِنْ often means Some. ― -b10- Often redundant: see 1 in art. عيض. ― -b11- Of, or among: see two exs. voce فِى, latter part. ― -b12- حُسَيْنٌ مِنِّى وَأَنَا مِنْهُ Hoseyn and I are as one thing, [as though each were a part of the other,] in respect of the love that is due to us, &c. (Commencement of a tradition in the Jámi' es-Sagheer: thus explained in the Expos. of El-Munáwee.) See Ham, p. 139; and De Sacy's Gr. i. 492. ― -b13- مَا أَنَا مَنْ دَدٍ وَلَا الدَّدُ مِنِّى: see art. دد. IbrD confirms my rendering of this saying. ― -b14- يَتَعَرَّضُ إِِلَى شَىْءٍ لَيْسَ مِنْهُ [He applies himself to a thing not of his business to do].

(K, Jel.) So, too, in مِنْ يَوْمِهِ In, or on, his, meaning, the same, day: and مِنْ سَاعَتِهِ In, or at, his, meaning the same, instant of time. See also De Sacy's Gr., ii. 526. مُنَ ا@للّٰهِ ذ is for أَيْمُنُ اللّٰه. مَنِىٌّ ذ and المَنِىُّ, from مَنْ: see أَيِّىٌّ; and De Sacy's Anthol. Gr. Ar., pp. 374 and 401, and 165. مَنٌّ ذ : see رِطْلٌ. مِنَّةٌ ذ [An obligation, عَلَى أَحَدٍ upon one, and also لَهُ to him.] ― -b2- A favour, or benefit, conferred, or bestowed.
