(Sgh, K.) سَبْطٌ ذ : see سَبِطٌ, throughout. سِبْطٌ ذ A grandchild; (S, Msb, K;) a son's child, and a daughter's child: (M, TA:) pl. أَسْبَاطٌ; (S, Msb, TA;) which is commonly used by the vulgar as signifying daughters' children; distinguished by them from أَحْفَادٌ [which they apply to son's children, pl. of حَفِيدٌ]; but the leading lexicologists expressly declare that it includes sons' children and daughters' children, as it is said to do by ISd: IAar explained سِبْطٌ and سِبْطَانِ and أَسْبَاطٌ as signifying the particularly distinguished, and choicest, of children. (TA.) It is said in a trad., (TA,) الحَسَنُ وَالحُسَيْنُ سِبْطَا رَسُولِ ا@للّٰهِ El-Hasan, and El-Hoseyn are the two grandsons of the Apostle of God. (M, TA. *) ― -b2- A tribe of the Jews: pl. أَسْبَاطٌ: (M, Msb, K:) سِبْطٌ (M) and أَسْبَاطٌ (S, Msb) in relation to the Jews, (M, Msb,) or [rather] the Children of Israel, (S,) being like قَبِيلَةٌ (M) and قَبَائِلُ (S, Msb) in relation to the Arabs: (S, M, Msb:) and the former are thus called to distinguish them from the children of Ishmael. (M, TA.) In the phrase, وَقَطَّعْنَاهُمُ ا@ثْنَتَىْ عَشْرَةَ أَسْبَاطًا [And we divided them into twelve divisions, tribes], (S, M, K,) in the Kur [vii. 160], (S, M,) اسباطا is a substitute (S, M, K) for اثنتى عشرة, (S, M,) not a specificative, (S, M, K,) because the specificative may only be a sing.; (S, M;) the meaning being وقطّعناهم اثنتى عشرة فِرْقَةً اسباطًا, (Akh, Zj, S,) and therefore the numeral is fem.; (Akh, S;) or this is a mistake; for it should be فِرَقًا اثنتى عشرة; and therefore the numeral is fem. (Abu-l-'Abbás, TA.) Accord. to Ktr, you say, هٰذَا سِبْطٌ and هٰذِهِ سِبْطٌ, and هٰؤُلَآءِ سِبْطٌ and using سبط as a pl., meaning فِرْقَةٌ. (TA.) The saying “ كَأَنَّهُ سِبْطٌ مِنَ الأَسْبَاطِ
” is [asserted to be] a mistake, inasmuch as its author imagined that سِبْطٌ meant a man: (M:) IDrd ascribes it to El-'Ajjáj or Ru-beh: it occurs in an أُرْجُوزَة by the latter. (Sgh, TA.) [But it is applied to a single man: for] it is said in a trad., (TA,) حُسَيْنٌ سِبْطٌ مِنَ الأَسْبَاطِ, i. e. Hoseyn is [as though he were] a nation of the nations (أُمَّةٌ مِنَ الأُمَمِ K) in goodness; so expl. by Aboo-Bekr: (TA:) or one of the fathers of tribes; because of the multitude of his descendants: or one of the sons of daughters. (So in a marginal note in a copy of the “ Jámi' es-Sagheer ” of Es-Suyootee.) ― -b3- Also A generation (قَرْن) that comes after another. (Zj, TA.) -A2- And سِبْطٌ رِبْعِيَّةٌ, (TA in the present art. and in art. ربع,) or رِبْعِيَّةٌسَبَطٌ , (so accord. to a copy of the M, in the present art.,) A palmtree of which the fruit ripens in the end of the summer, or hot-season. (M, TA.) سَبَطٌ ذ : see the next paragraph, first sentence. -A2- Also Such as is fresh of the [plant called] حَلِىّ; one of the plants of the sands; (M;) [i. e.] the [plant called] نَصِىّ, while fresh; (A'Obeyd, S, O, K;) when it has dried up, called حَلِىّ; (A'Obeyd, S, O;) a plant like the ثِيل [q. v.], except that it becomes tall; growing in the sands: (Lth, TA:) n. un. with ة: (Lth, S:) it is one of those that, when they dry up, become white, [as is said of the حَلِىّ,] resembling hoariness, like the ثُمَام [or panic grass]: (AHn, O: in the TA, the نَمَّام:) it is asserted that the Arabs say, “ The صِلِّيَان is the bread of the camels, and the سَبَط is their خَبِيص: ” (AHn, O:) its manner of growth is like [that of] دُخْن [q. v.]; and it is a good pasture: (K:) AHn says, a desert-Arab, of 'Anazeh, told me that its manner of growth is like that of large دُخْن, falling short of [so I render دُونَ, but this also signifies exceeding,] ذُرَة [q. v.], and it has grain like the grain termed بَزْر [q. v.], which will not come forth from its envelopes but by bruising, or pounding, and men extract it and eat it, made into bread, and cooked: (M, O:) the n. un. is with ة: and the pl. is أَسْبَاطٌ. (M.) Also The tree that has many branches and one أَصْل [meaning stem]: (K:) so says Az.; adding that hence is derived أَسْبَاطٌ [pl. of سِبْطٌ]; as though the father represented the tree and the children represented the branches: (TA: [but this is questionable:]) accord. to Abo-Ziyád, a certain tree, (AHn, M, O,) growing in the sands, (AHn, O,) tall, having slender branches, eaten by the camels and the sheep or goats, (AHn, M, O,) and collected by men, who sell it upon the roads (عَلَى الطُّرُقِ), (AHn, O,) or with the tamarisk (مَعَ الطَّرْفَآءِ); (so in the TA;) without blossom and without thorns, having thin leaves of the size of [those of] the كُرَّاث [or leek] (AHn, M, O) when this first comes forth. (AHn, O.) ― -b2- See also the last sentence of the next preceding paragraph. سَبِطٌ ذ and ↓ سَبْطٌ and ↓ سَبَطٌ , (the first and third of these in one copy of the S, and the second alone in another copy of the S, and all in the M and Msb and K,) the first of the dial. of El- Hijáz, (TA,) from سَبِطَ, and the second from سَبُطَ, the last being an inf. n. used as an epithet, (Msb,) Lank, not crisp; (S, M, * Msb, K; *) applied to hair: (S, Msb:) pl. سِبَاطٌ, which is said by Sb to be of the measure most common for a pl. of an epithet of the measure فَعَلٌ, (M,) or فَعْلٌ.

(TA.) ― -b3- سَبِطٌ also signifies Tall; (M, K;) applied to a man: (M:) or, as also ↓ سَبْطٌ , (TA,) or سَبِطُ الجِسْمِ, (M,) so applied, long in the [bones called] أَلْوَاح [pl. of لَوْح], (M, TA,] and even therein: (TA:) or سَبِطُ الجِسْمِ or ↓ سَبْطُهُ , (accord. to different copies of the K,) or both, (S, TA,) goodly in stature, or person, or proportion, (S, K,) and evenness.

S.;] it is in the winter-quarters, and in it is the completion of the day whereof the fractions circulate in the years: when the said day is complete in that month, the people of Syria call that year عَامُ الكَبِيسِ; and when a child is born, or a person arrives from a country, in that year, they consider it fortunate. (Az, TA.) [See كَبِيسٌ.] سُبَاطَةٌ ذ Sweepings, syn. كُنَاسَةٌ, (S, M, Mgh, Msb, K,) which are thrown every day in the courts of houses.
