1 خَصَّهُ بِالشَّىْءِ ذ , (S, K,) or بِكَذَا, (A, Msb,) aor. خَصُ3َ , (Msb, TA,) inf. n. خَصٌّ (K) and خُصُوصٌ (S, Msb, K) and خَصُوصٌ (TA) and خَصُوصِيَّةٌ and خُصُوصِيَّةٌ, (S, Mgh, * Msb, K,) of which last two the former is the more chaste, (S, TA,) and is the form mentioned in the Fs and its Exposi tions, and the ى in it is said to be the relative ى, and the ى which is characteristic of an inf. n., whereas in the latter it is said to be a characteristic of intensiveness, but MF thinks that this requires consideration, because the ى is also said to be, and by some more commonly, without teshdeed, as in كَرَاهِيَةٌ and عَلَانِيَةٌ, (TA,) and خِصِّيصَى, (S, K,) like مِكِّيثَى, which is said to be the only other instance of this measure, (TA,) [but some others might be added, as دِلِّيلَى and فِخِّيرَى and قِتِّيتَى,] and خِصِّيصَآءُ, (IAar, Kr, K,) [like مِكِّيثَآءُ,] the former of which last two [each of which has an intensive signification] is the chaste, and com monly known, form, (TA,) and خُصِّيَّةٌ, or خِصِّيَّةٌ, or خَصِيَّةٌ, (accord. to different copies of the K,) written by Sgh with damm, (TA,) and تَخِصَّةٌ, (Ibn-' Abbád, K,) or, as some say, خَصُوصِيَّةٌ and خِصِّيَّةٌ [or خُصِّيَّةٌ or خَصِّيَّةٌ] are each a quasi-inf. n., as also خَاصَّةٌ, (TA,) He distinguished him particularly, peculiarly, or specially, i. e., above, or from, or exclusively of, others, by the thing, or by such a thing; he particularized him, or particularly or peculiarly or specially characterized him, thereby; syn. فَضَّلَهُ (A, K, TA) دُونَ غَيْرِهِ, and مَيَّزَهُ; (TA;) he appropriated, or assigned, [the thing or] such a thing, or made it to belong, to him alone, or in particular, or peculiarly, or specially, exclusively of others; (Msb;) and بِهِاختصّهُ signifies the same; (S, A, Msb, K;) as also ↓ اخصّهُ , (A, [but for this I know not any other authority,]) and ↓ خصّصهُ ; (A;) or this last has an intensive signification. (Msb.) You say, خَصَّهُ بِالُودِّ He distinguished him &c. by love, or affection; or favoured him in preference to another, or others, thereby. (K, TA.) As to the saying of AZ, “ إِِنِ ا@مْرَأٌ خَصَّنِى عَمْدًا مَوَدَّتَهُ
عَلَى التَّنَانِى لَعِنْدِى غَيْرُ مَكْفُورِ
” [If a man distinguish me above, or from, or exclusively of, others, purposely, by his love, or because of his love of me, notwithstanding distance of each from the other, it will not be disacknowledged with me,] the meaning is, خَصَّنِى بِمَوَدَّتِهِ; or it may be خَصَّنِى لِمَوَدَّتِهِ إِِيَّاىَ [in the TA بِمَوَدَّتِهِ, which is evidently a mistranscription]; for, says ISd, we have not heard خَصَّهُ [or rather خَصَّ] doubly transitive. (TA.) And [hence] خَصَّهُ بِكَذَا also signifies He gave him such a thing in large quantity, or abundantly. (TA.) [You say also, خَصَّهُ بِالذِّكْرِ He distinguished, &c., or singled out, him, or it, by mention: or he particularized, peculiarized, or specified, him, or it, thereby; he particularly, peculiarly, or specially, mentioned him, or it. And خَصَّهُ, alone, He pointed particularly, or peculiarly, to him, or it, in what he said; or he meant particularly, or peculiarly, him, or it. And خَصَّ مِنْهُ كَذَا He distinguished, particularized, peculiarized, or specified, thereof such a thing: and he distinguished therefrom such a thing; he particularly, peculiarly, or specially, excepted therefrom such a thing.] You also say, خَصَّهُ لِنَفْسِهِ (TA) and لِنَفْسِهِاختصّهُ (T, A, TA) [He appropriated, or took, or chose, him, or it, particularly, or specially, to, or for, himself; as also خَصَّ بِهِ نَفْسَهُ and بِهِ نَفْسَهُاختصّ ]. And فُلَانًاهُوَ يَسْتَخِصُّ and يَسْتَخْلِصُهُ (A, TA) [He appropriates such a one purely to himself, exclusively of any partner; (see the latter verb;)] he chooses such a one for himself; he appropriates him to himself as his particular, or special, intimate; (TA in art. خلص;) both signify the same. (S and K in art. خلص.) [And ↓ اختصّهُ He treated him, or behaved towards him, with partiality; was partial towards him: a signification implied by the first explanation in this art.: and in this sense it is often used.] -A2- خَصَّ, aor. خَصُ3َ , [contr. to general rule, by which it should be خَصِ3َ , for it is intrans., and of the measure فَعَلَ, accord. to the Msb,] inf. n. خُصُوصٌ, [and app. خَصُوصِيَّةٌ and خُصُوصِيَّةٌ, accord. to modern usage,] It was, or became, particular, peculiar, or special; restricted, or confined, to one or more of persons, places, or things; distinct, or distinguished, from others; not common, or general; contr. of عَمَّ; as also ↓ اختصّ : (Msb:) [each, also, followed by لَهُ, signifies He, or it, belonged, pertained, or appertained, to him, or it, particularly, peculiarly, specially, or exclusively; it so related to him, or it; it was, or became, peculiar to him, or it: see also the latter verb below.] -A3- خَصَّ, sec. pers. خَصِصْتَ, (in the CK خُصِصْتُ,) [inf. n., app., خَصَاصَةٌ and خَصَاصٌ and خَصَاصَآءُ,] (tropical:) He was, or became, poor; in a state of poverty; (Fr, Sgh, K;) as also ↓ اختصّ .

(K.) [You say, الخَاصُّ وَالعَامُّ, and وَالعَمَّةُالخَاصَّةُ , The distinguished and the common people; the persons of distinction and the vulgar.] You also say, ↓ إِِنَّمَا يَفْعَلُ هٰذَا خِصَّانٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ meaning خَوَاصُّ مِنْهُمْ [Only distinguished persons of mankind do this].

(Kull p. 174. [All the abovementioned words here cited from that work are there without syll. signs, as being well known. Both خاصّة and ↓ خاصّيّة , as here explained, are perhaps post-classical; but of this I am not certain: and both are sometimes used as meaning The peculiar nature of a thing; also termed its essence.]) ― -b3- خَاصَّةً and بِخَاصَّةٍ: see خُصُوصٌ. خَاصِّيَّةٌ خاص خاصيه خاصية : see خَاصَّةٌ, in two places. خُوَيْصَّةٌ خويصه خويصة dim. of خَاصَّةٌ; (A, K;) [like دُوَيْبَّةٌ, q. v., dim. of دَابَّةٌ;] originally خُوَيْصِصَةٌ; (TA;) the ى being quiescent because the ى of the dim. cannot be movent; (A, K;) [properly signifying A little, or young, particular, or peculiar, or special, friend, companion, associate, attendant, or servant; and used in other senses, like other diminutives; implying littleness of estimation; and also affection, and awe.] It is said in a trad., (TA,) عَلَيْكَ بِخُوَيْصَّةِ نَفْسِكَ [Keep thou to the little, or dear, particular friend of thine own self: so it seems to mean accord. to Z, being mentioned by him among the proper expressions belonging to this art.: but accord. to the TK, it appears to be tropical; for the meaning is there said to be, (assumed tropical:) thine own particular state, or condition]. (A, TA.) In another trad., خويصّة is used as signifying A little, young, particular, or peculiar, or special, servant. (TA.) And in another trad. it is said, بَادِرُوا بِالأَعْمَالِ سِتًّا الدَّجَّالِ وَكَذَا وَكَذَا وَخُوَيْصَّةَ أَحَدِكُمْ, i. e. (assumed tropical:) Strive ye to be before six things with [good] works; Antichrist, and such and such things, and the event of death which is specially, or peculiarly, appointed to any one of you: [or, I would rather say, the awful special awaiter of any one of you; though it is asserted that] the diminutive form is here used to denote low estimation of that which it signifies in comparison with what follows it, namely, the resurrection, &c. (TA.) مُخَصٌّ 1 : see خَاصٌّ, last sentence but one.
