(S.) ― -b2- [Hence,] it is said in a trad., إِِذَا أَرَادَ ا@للّٰهُ بِعَبْدٍ شَرًّا خَضَّرَ لَهُ فِى اللَّبِنِ وَالطِّينِ حَتَّى يَبْنِىَ, (TA,) i. e.

(Marginal note in a copy of the “ Jámi' es-Sagheer ” of Es-Suyootee.) [Hence also,] خُضِّرَ لَهُ فِيهِ, inf. n. as above, (tropical:) He was blessed in it. (L, K.)

Young men used to say to an old man, أَجْزَرْتُ يَا شَيْخُ (assumed tropical:) [Thou hast attained to the time for dying, (lit. for being cut,) O old man]: and he replied, أَىْ بَنِىَّ وَتُخْتَضَرُونَ (assumed tropical:) [O my sons, and ye shall be cut off, or die, in your youth]. (S. [See also أَجْزَرَ.]) ― -b3- Also, the act. v., He cut off the green branches of a palm-tree with his مِخْلَب; (TA;) and so ↓ خَضَرَ , (K, * TA,) aor. خَضُرَ , inf. n. خَضْرٌ: (TA:) and he cut off a thing, as a man's nose, entirely: (TA:) or, simply, he cut off a man's nose.

(A.) ― -b5- And hence, (TA,) (tropical:) He deflowered a girl: (K, TA:) or, before she had attained to puberty; (Msb in art. قض, and K;) as also اِبْتَسَرَ and اِبْتَكَرَ.

(S, A, Msb, K.) [Hence,] اخضرّ إِِزَارَى (The place of) my ازار became black: or, rather, became of a [blackish] hue inclining to green: because the hair when it first grows is of that hue. (Har p. 494.) And اخضرّ شَارِبُهُ [His mustache grew so as to appear dark]; said of a boy; a phrase similar to بَقَلَ وَجْهُهُ. (Mgh in art. بقل.)

Whence the saying, مَضِرَةٌالدُّنْيَا خَضِرَةٌ [in the S حُلْوَةٌ خَضِرَةٌ] The goods of this world are delicate, fresh, and pleasant: or pleasing. (TA.) And ↓ الغَزْوُ حُلْوٌ خَضِرٌ [Predatory warfare is sweet and] fresh [or refreshing] and loved; because of the victory and spoil attending it. (TA, from a trad. of Ibn- 'Omar [which see fully quoted voce ثُمَامٌ].) ― -b2- You say also, هُوَلَكَ خِضْرًا مِضْرًا It is thine, or for thee: may it be attended with enjoyment and a wholesome result.

(TA.) ― -b5- And الخَضِرُ The plant calledالبَقْلَةُ الخَضْرَآءُ ; as also ↓ الخَضِرَةُ and ↓ الخَضِيرُ (K) and ↓ الخُضْرَةُ : (TA:) it is a green and rough herb or leguminous plant, the leaves and fruit of which are like those of millet; it rises to the height of a cubit; and fills the mouth of the camel. (TA.) Also A species of plant of the kind called جَنْبَة; (K;) which latter term is applied to herbage whereof the root is deep in the earth, like the نَصِىّ and صِلِّيَان: (TA:) [a coll. gen. n.:] n. un. with ة: (K:) it is not of the slender and succulent herbs or leguminous plants, which dry up in summer. (TA.) Hence آكِلَةُ الخَضِرِ, occurring in a trad., [properly signifying A she-camel that eats the plant above mentioned,] applied to a man who acts justly and moderately with respect to worldly enjoyments: for the خضر is not of the slender and succulent herbs, as above observed, nor of those excellent plants which the spring produces by its consecutive rains, and which therefore become goodly and soft or tender; but of those upon which beasts pasture after others have dried up, because they find no others, and which the Arabs call جَنْبَة; and the beasts do not eat much of it, nor do they find it wholesome. (IAth, TA.) خَضْرَةٌ خضر خضره خضرة [if not a mistranscription for خُضْرَةٌ] Fresh cut herbage, to be eaten quickly.

” [They brought milk mixed with much water. Hast thou ever seen the wolf?]: meaning that the milk was of an ash-colour (أَوْرَق), like the colour of the wolf, by reason of the great quantity of the water: or, as some say, milk and water in the proportion of one third of the former to two thirds of the latter: it is of any milk, that has been kept in a skin or that is fresh, and from any beast: some say that the word is a pl., [or rather a coll. gen. n.,] and that the sing., or n. un., is with ة.

(Msb, TA.) You say شَجَرَةٌ خَضْرَآءُ A green, and fresh, or juicy, tree. (TA.) And مَآءٌ أَخْضَرُ Water inclining to a green colour, by reason of its clearness. (TA.) And أَخْضَرُ الجِلْدَةِ [lit.

أَخْضَرُ الجِلْدَةِ فِى بَيْتِ العَرَبْ
” [And I am the tawny: who knows me? the tawny of skin (or pure of race), of the family that comprises the nobility of the Arabs]. (S, IB.) And فُلَانٌ أَخْضَرُ القَفَا [lit. Such a one is blackish, or black, in the back of the neck:] meaning (tropical:) such a one is the son of a black woman: (Az, A:) or (tropical:) one who is slapped on the back of his neck: (A:) or (tropical:) a freedman, or an emancipated slave.

They are green in the shoulders, from carrying the produce of their land:] meaning (tropical:) they are in a state of great plenty. (K, TA.) And [hence, perhaps,] فُلَانٌ أَخْضَرُ (tropical:) Such a one possesses abundant خَيْر [or wealth, or prosperity]: (A, TA:) [or it may mean goodness: for] الأَخْضَرُ, applied to a man, is an epithet of praise, whereby he may be likened to the sea, because it is described as green, or to the [rain or herbage called] رَبِيع; in both cases meaning (assumed tropical:) liberal, or bountiful; and it is so applied because خُضْرَةٌ is of the colours of the Arabs: and it is also an epithet of dispraise, as meaning (assumed tropical:) black by reason of baseness, ignobleness, or meanness. (Ham p. 282.) And شَابٌّ أَخْضَرُ (tropical:) A young man whose hair has begun to grow upon the sides of his face. (TA.) And كَتِيبَةٌ خَضْرَآءُ (tropical:) An army, or a troop of horse, overspread with the blackness of iron: (S, TA:) or a great army or troop of horse (K, TA) of which most of the men are clad in iron; like جَأْوَآءُ: (TA:) because of the خُضْرَة of the iron: (A:) [i. e.] because of the blackness thereof. (TA.) And اللَّيْلُ أَخْضَرُ (tropical:) Night is black. (TA.) And [hence,] جَنَّ عَلَيْهِ أَخْضَرُ الجَنَاحَيْنِ (tropical:) Night [lit. the black-winged] veiled him, concealed him, or covered him with its darkness. (A.) مُدْهَامَّتَانِ, in the Kur [lv. 64, relating to two gardens of Paradise], is explained by خَضْرَاوَانِ because it means Inclining to blackness, by reason of abundance of moisture, or irrigation. (S.) ― -b2- الأَخْضَرُ used as a subst.: see خُضَارَةٌ. ― -b3- The fem. خَضْرَآءُ [is also used as a subst., and] signifies Gree herbs or leguminous plants; (Msb, K;) as also ↓ خُضَارَةٌ : (K:) pl. خَضْرَاوَاتٌ: by rule it should be خُضْرٌ; but as the quality of a subst. predominates in it, it has a pl. like the pl. of a subst., like صَحْرَاوَاتٌ pl. of صَحْرَآءٌ: (Msb:) this pl. occurs in the saying (in a trad., TA) لَيْسَ فِى الخَضْرَاوَاتِ صَدَقَةٌ There is no poor-rate in the case of green herbs or leguminous plants; (Msb;) or fresh fruits and herbs or leguminous plants; (TA;) or fruits, such as the apple and the pear &c.; or herbs or leguminous plants, such as leeks and smallage and rue and the like; and خُضَرٌ, pl. of خُضْرَةٌ, is sometimes substituted for it. (Mgh.) [Hence,] إِِيَّاكُمْ وَخَضْرَآءُ الدِّمَنِ, meaning (tropical:) Avoid ye the beautiful woman that is of bad origin: (S, A, Msb:) because what grows in a دِمْنَة [or place which men have blackened by their cooking, and where their camels or other beasts have staled and dunged], though it may be beautiful and bright, does not bear fruit [because it is neglected, and left unwatered], (S, Msb,) and soon becomes corrupt, or bad. (Msb. [See also دِمْنَةٌ: and see عُشْبَةٌ الدَّارِ, in art. عشب.]) ― -b4- And الخَضْرَآءُ, as an epithet in which the quality of a subst. predominates, (TA,) (tropical:) The sky, or heaven; (S, A, K;) because of its greenness; like as the earth is called الغَبْرَآءُ.

[See art. غضر.]) ― -b7- البَقْلَةُ الخَضْرَآءُ: see خَضِرٌ. ― -b8- الخُضْرُ, (T,) or الخَضْرَآءُ, (K,) The domestic pigeons; (T, K;) so called although of various colours, because their predominant colour is وُرْقَة [or ash-colour], or خُضْرَة [meaning a dark, or an ashy, dust-colour]: the خُضْر and the نُمْر [or spotted with white and black, &c.,] are especially characterized by the faculty of rightly directing their course. (T, TA.) ― -b9- الأَخَاصِرُ [a pl. of الأَخْضَرُ used as a subst.] (tropical:) Gold and flesh-meat and wine; as also الأَحَامِرَةُ [as some explain this latter].
