1 سَلَبَهُ ذ , (S, A, K,) aor. سَلُبَ , (TA,) inf. n. سَلْبٌ (S, K) and سَلَبٌ, (K,) from the former of which the pl. سُلُوبٌ has been formed, on the authority of hearsay, (El-Jurjánee, Msb in art. قصد,) He seized it, or carried it off, by force; (S, A, K;) as also ↓ استلبهُ . (S, K.) You say, سَلَبَهُ الشَّىْءَ, aor. سَلُبَ , inf. n. سَلْبٌ and سَلَبٌ; and إِِيَّاهُاستلبهُ ; (M, TA;) He seized, or carried off, by force [from him the thing; or he spoiled him, despoiled him, plundered him, or deprived him, of the thing]. (TA.) And سَلَبْتُهُ ثَوْبَهُ, (Mgh, * Msb,) aor. سَلُبَ , (Msb,) inf. n. سَلْبٌ, (Mgh, Msb,) I took away from him his garment; (Mgh, * Msb;) as also ↓ اسلبتهُ [perhaps a mistranscription for ↓ استلبتهُ , but another instance of the former of these two verbs, in a similar sense, occurs in what follows]: originally, سَلَبْتُ ثَوْبَ زيَدٍْ [I took away the garment of Zeyd]; but the verb has been made to have زيد for its object, and the ثوب is postponed, and put in the accus. case as a specificative [though by rule the specificative should be indeterminate]; and it may be suppressed, [so that you may say simply, سَلَبْتُهُ, meaning I took away from him what was upon him or with him, spoiled him, or plundered him,] the meaning being understood. (Msb.) ― -b2- [Hence] one says also, سَلَبَهُ فُؤَادَهُ وَعَقْلَهُ (tropical:) [He, or it, despoiled him, or deprived him, of his heart and his reason], and ↓ اسلبهُ . (A, TA.) [The latter one might think to be a mistranscription for ↓ استلبهُ were it not for an instance of the same verb before men- tioned, and for the fact that it is immediately followed in the A by وَهُوَ مُسْلَبُ العَقْلِ: perhaps, however, مُسْلَب may be here a mistake for مُسْلِب.] ― -b3- And اُسْلُبْ هٰذِهِ القَصَبَةَ (assumed tropical:) Peel thou this cane, or reed. (TA.) ― -b4- [In grammar and logic, سَلْبٌ is used to signify (assumed tropical:) Privation, or deprivation, in a general sense; and (assumed tropical:) negation; opposed to إِِثْبَاتٌ and إِِيجَابٌ.] -A2- سَلْبٌ [as an inf. n. of which the verb (app. سَلَبَ) is not mentioned] (assumed tropical:) The going, or journeying, lightly and quickly.

” (assumed tropical:) [The black of the eye became depressed so that it became a hollow in consequence of their going with much lightness and quickness: سَلْبَا, for سَلْبًا, being an absolute complement to the inf. n. in سَلْبِهِنَّ].

(assumed tropical:) She abstained from the wearing of ornaments, and the use of perfumes, and dye for the hands &c., and put on the garments of mourning,] عَلَى زَوْجِهَا [for her husband]: (K:) or, as some say, إِِحْدَادٌ is for the husband; (S, A;) but تَسَلُّبٌ is sometimes for another than the husband: (S, TA:) [therefore] تسلّبت signifies (assumed tropical:) she put on the black garments of mourning; (M, TA;) as also ↓ سلِّبت : (M, A:) you say, عَلَىتُسَلِّبُ زَوْجِهَا or حَمِيمِهَا (Lh, M) (assumed tropical:) She puts on the black garments of mourning [for her husband or her loved and loving relation or friend]: (M:) and عَلَى مَيِّتِهَاسَلَّبَتْ (assumed tropical:) She put on the black garments of mourning for her dead one: تَسْلِيبٌ having a general application.

(TA.) And [particularly] The bark, or rind, of a kind of tree (S, K) well known (S) in El-Yemen, of which ropes are made, (S, K,) and which is coarser and harder than the fibres of the Theban palm-tree: (S:) hence it is that a well-known kind of [thick] rope [made of the fibres of the common palm-tree] is called by the vulgar ↓ سَلَبَةٌ : (TA:) or the bark of a kind of tree of which are made [baskets of the kind called] سِلَال: (Sh, TA:) there is a market called ↓ سُوقُ السَّلَّابِينَ in El-Medeeneh, (Sh, S, K, TA,) and in Mekkeh also, as being the market [of the sellers, or manufacturers, of what are made] of سَلَب: (Sh, TA:) it is also [said to be] (K) a certain kind of tall tree, (M, K,) growing symmetrically, which is taken and laid beneath hot ashes (يُمَلُّ) and then split asunder, whereupon there comes forth form it a white مُشَاقَة [or coarse fibrous substance] like [the fibres of the palm-tree, called] لِيف; and it is one of the best of the materials of which ropes are made: the n. un. is with ة: (M:) and (M, K) AHn says, (M,) it is a certain plant (M, K) which grows in form like candles, except that it is larger and longer, and of which are made ropes of every sort: (M:) and (M, K) some say, (M,) it is the fibrous substance (ليف) of the Theban palm-tree, (M, K,) this Lth asserts it to be, (TA,) which is brought from Mekkeh, (M,) and Lth adds, and it is white; but Az says that Lth has erred respecting it: A'Obeyd says, I asked respecting it, and was told, it is not the fibrous substance of the Theban palm-tree, but is a kind of tree well known in El-Yemen, of which ropes are made: and some say that it is the خُوص [or leaves] of the ثَمَام [or panic grass]: and this [says SM] is what is commonly known among us in El-Yemen: (TA:) [accord. to Forskål, (Flor. Aegypt. Arab., p. cx.) this name is applied in El-Yemen to a species of hyacinth, which he terms hyacinthus aporus.] A poet says, (S,) namely, [Murrah] Ibn-Mahkán [El-Temeemee], (M,) “ فَنَشْنَشَ الجِلْدَ عَنْهَاوَهْىَ بَارِكَةٌ
كَمَا تُنَشْنِشُ كَفَّا فَاتِلٍ سَلَبَا
” (S, M, *) i. e.

(S.) سُلْبَةٌ ذ i. q. جُرْدَةٌ [i. e. The denuded, or unclad, part, or parts, of the body]: (IAar, K:) or a state of nudity. (TA.) One says, مَا أَحْسَنَ سُلْبَتَهَا [How goodly is what is unclad of her person! or, her state of nudity!]. (K.) سَلَبَةٌ ذ : see سَلَبٌ, in the former half of the paragraph: ― -b2- and see also سِلَابٌ. -A2- Also A string, or cord, that is tied to the خَطْم [i. e. muzzle, or nose,] of the camel, exclusive of the خِطَام [q. v.]. (M.) ― -b2- And A sinew that is bound upon an arrow: accord. to AHn, the sinew that is wound upon the لِيط [or skin of the reed, or cane,] of the arrow. (M.) سِلَابٌ ذ sing. of سُلُبٌ, which signifies The black garments of women at their assemblies for mourning: (S:) MF says that the former is expl. in the K as meaning black garments, which necessarily implies that it is a pl.; and the latter is there said to be its pl., which necessarily implies that it is a sing.: (TA:) [but it may be replied that the author of the K regarded the former as a pl. without a sing.; and the latter, as a pl. pl.:] or both signify black garments worn by women; and the sing. is ↓ سَلَبَةٌ : (M:) accord. to the T, سِلَابٌ signifies a black garment with which a woman mourning for the death of her husband covers her head: accord. to the R, a black خِرْقَة [or piece torn off from a garment or cloth] that is worn by a woman bereft of her child, or of a person beloved, by death.

(Az, TA.) And سَلِيبٌ is applied to a woman as meaning (assumed tropical:) Whose husband has died, or her loved and loving relation or friend, and who puts on the black garments of mourning for him; as also ↓ مُسَلِّبٌ and ↓ سَلُوبٌ : (Lh, M:) or ↓ مُسَلِّبٌ , so applied, signifies [simply] (assumed tropical:) putting on, or wearing, the black garments of mourning.
