1 نَصَحَ لَهُ ذ , and نَصَحَهُ, (S, K, &c.,) but the former is the original mode of expression, (Lb,) and is the more chaste, (S, Msb,) and the latter was scarcely ever used by the Arabs, (Fr,) aor. نَصَحَ , inf. n. نُصْحٌ and نَصَاحَةٌ (S, K,) and نَصِيحَةٌ, (A, L, Msb,) or this last is a simple subst., (S, K,) and نِصَاحَةٌ and نَصْحٌ (L) and نُصُوحٌ (TA) and نَصَاحِيَةٌ; (K;) and ↓ ناصحهُ , inf. n. مُنَاصَحَةٌ; (MF;) He advised him, or counselled him, [in an absolute sense,] sincerely, honestly, or faithfully: and he so acted towards him: (Msb:) he directed him to that which was for his good, by words, or speech, which is the proper signification; or otherwise, which is a tropical signification: (Lb:) or he gave him good advice, or counsel; directed him to what was good: or he advised him, or counselled him, sedulously, or earnestly: or he acted sincerely, or honestly, to him, (MF,) or he was benevolent towards him; desired what was good for him.

(S, art. رقح.) ― -b5- نَصَحَ It (anything, S) was, or became, pure, unadulterated, or genuine.

(A.) 4 انصح ذ He watered camels so as to satisfy them with drink. (IAar, S, K.) 5 تنصّح ذ He was prodigal of نُصْح [i. e., sincere or faithful advice or counsel, &c.] Hence the saying of Aktham Ibn-Seyfee, إِِيَّاكُمْ وَكَثْرَةَ التَّنَصُّحِ فَإِِنَّهُ يُورِثُ التُّهَمَةِ [Beware ye of being prodigal of sincere or faithful advice or counsel, for it occasions doubt, or suspicion, or evil opinion].

” [He says, Accept my sincere advice, for I am to thee a sincere adviser]: (TA:) and إِِنْتَصِحٌ كِتَابَ ا@للّٰهِ Accept the sincere or faithful advice or counsel of the Book of God. (A.) But IB says, that the verb in this sense is intrans.; and that, when trans., it signifies He took a person as a نَصِيح [a sincere or faithful adviser or counsellor, &c.]; whence the saying لَا أُرِيدُ مِنْكَ نُصْحًا وَلَا ا@نْتِصَاحا, i. e. لَا أُرِيدُ مِنْكَ أَنْ تَنْصَحَنِى وَلَا أَنْ تَتَّخذَنِى نَصِيحًا [I do not desire of thee sincere or faithful advice, nor thy taking me as a sincere or faithful adviser].

مِثْلَمَا مُدَّتْ نِصَاحَاتُ الرُّبَحْ
” (S, &c.) ربح here signifies, accord. to some, a young camel such as is called رُبَعٌ: (Az;) or a lamb, or kid: (ISd:) or the bird called in Persian زاغ. (TA.) [But see what follows.] ― -b2- Also, (accord. to El-Muärrij, TA.) Snares, (as in some copies of the K, and in the TA) or cords, (as in other copies of the K) having loops (حَلَق) made to them, which are set, and with which apes (قُروُد) are caught; (K;) one of these animals being attached to one of the cords to attract others.

(TA.) تَوْبَةٌ نَصُوحٌ ذ (tropical:) True, or sincere, repentance: (S, K:) from نَصَحَتِ الإِِبِلُ الشُّرْبَ: (IAar, S:) or [repentance that mends one's life;] form نَصَحَ الثَّوْبَ, agreeably with the saying of Mohammad, “ He who traduces the absent rends, and he who begs forgiveness of God mends: ” [see رَفَأَ:] (S:) or such repentance that one returns not after it to that of which he repents: (K:) sincere repentance, after which one returns not to sin: so explained by Mohammad himself: (TA:) or very sincere, or very honest repentance: (Zj:) فَعُولٌ being a measure of an intensive epithet, applicable alike to the masc. and fem.: (TA:) or repentance in which one does not purpose to return (K) to the sin of which he repents. (TA.) The people of El-Medeeneh read [in the Kur, lxvi., 8,] نَصُوحًا: but some read نُصُوحًا, which is an inf. n. (Fr.) نَصِيحٌ ذ : see نَاصِحٌ. نَصِيحَةٌ ذ , and inf. n., (L, Msb,) or a simple subst., (S, K,) Sincere, honest, or faithful, advice, or counsel, and conduct: (Msb:) direction to that which is for the good of the person who is the object, by words, or speech, which is the proper signification; or otherwise, which is a tropical signification: (Lb:) or good advice or counsel; direction to what is good: or sedulousness, or earnestness, in advice or counsel: or sincere or honest conduct: (MF:) or benevolence; desire for what is good for the person who is the object: (Nh, MF:) [pl. نَصَائِحُ] نَصَّاحٌ ذ : see نَاصِحٌ. نَاصِحٌ ذ (act. part. n. of نَصَِحَ) and ↓ نَصِيحٌ are syn., (S, K,) signifying One who advises, or counsels, sincerely, honestly, or faithfully: and who so acts; (Msb:) [who directs another to that which is for the good of the latter, by words, or speech; or otherwise: or who gives good advice, or counsel: or who advises, or counsels, sedulously, or earnestly: or who acts sincerely, or honestly: or benevolent; who desires what is good for another: see نَصَح لُهَ;] pl. of the former نُصَّحٌ and نُصَّاحٌ; (K;) and of the latter, نُصَحَآءُ.
