خَلْقٌ خلق خلقة signifies The act of measuring; or determining the measure, proportion, or the like, of a thing; and the making a thing by measure, or according to the measure of another thing; or proportioning a thing to another thing; syn. تَقْدِيرٌ: (S, Msb, K, TA, and Bd in ii. 19:) this is the primary meaning. (Msb, TA, and Bd ubi suprà.) You say, خَلَقَ الأَدِيمِ, (S, Msb, K,) aor. خَلُقَ , (S, TA,) inf. n. خَلْقٌ (JK, S, Msb, K) and خَلْقَةٌ, (K,) He measured, or proportioned, (قَدَّرَ,) the hide, and sewed it: (K:) or he measured, or proportioned, (قدّر,) the hide, (JK, S, Msb, K,) لِمَا يُرِيدُ [for, or to, that which he desired to make of it], (JK, * TA,) or لِلسِّقَآءِ [for, or to, the skin for water or milk that he desired to make], (Msb,) before cutting it; (S, K, TA;) he measured it (قَاسَهُ) to cut from it a water-bag, or a water-skin, or a boot: (TA:) and in like manner, خَلَقَ النِّطَعَ he measured, &c., the نطع [q. v.]: when one cuts it, one says, فَرَاهُ. (K.) And خَلَقَ النَّعْلَ He determined the measure of the sandal, or proportioned it; (قَدَّرَهَا;) and made it by measure. (Ksh and Bd in ii. 19.) Hence the saying of Zuheyr, (S,) praising Herim Ibn-Sinán, (TA,) “ وَلَأَنْتَ تَفْرِى مَا خَلَقْتَ وَبَعْ(??)
(??)ضُ القَوْمِ يَخْلُقُ ثُمَّ لَا يَفْرِى
” [(assumed tropical:) And thou indeed cuttest what thou hast measured; but some of the people measure, then will not cut]: (S, TA:) i. e., when thou determinest upon a thing thou executest it; but others determine upon that which they do not execute. (TA.) And El-Hajjáj said, مَا خَلَقْتُ إِِلَّا قَرَيْتُ وَعَدْتُ إِِلَّا وَفَيْتُ [(assumed tropical:) I have not measured unless I have afterwards cut, and I have not promised unless I have afterwards performed]. (S.) أَخْلُقُ لَكُمْ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ, in the Kur iii. 43, means I will form for you, (Jel,) or I will make according to its proper measure (أُقَدِّرُ) for you, (Ksh, Bd,) and will form, (Bd,) of clay, a thing like the form of the bird, or of birds.

(TA.) As the act of God, it signifies The originating, or bringing into being or existence, anything, not after the similitude of anything pre-existing: (TA:) [and the creating a thing; and thus it is generally best rendered; as meaning the bringing into existence from a state of non-existence: for] خَلَقَ ا@للّٰهُ الشَّىْءَ, inf. n. خَلْقٌ, means God brought the thing into existence (Mgh, * TA) after it had not been: (TA:) [or خَلْقٌ, as the act of God, signifies the creating out of nothing: for it is said that] أُعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمُ ا@لَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ, in the Kur ii. 19, means [Serve ye your Lord] who brought you into existence when ye were nothing. (Jel. [But in other passages of the Kur (vi. 2 &c.) it is said that God created (خَلَقَ) mankind of clay.]) Accord. to the A, خَلَقَ ا@للّٰهُ الخَلْقَ is a tropical phrase, meaning (tropical:) God brought into existence the creation, or created beings, or mankind, according to a predetermination (تَقْدِير) required by wisdom.

In the saying, فَلَيُغَيِّرُنَّ خَلْقَ ا@للّٰهِ, in the Kur [iv. 118, lit. And they shall alter the creature of God], some say that castration is meant: (TA: [and Bd includes, with this, other unnatural actions:]) or the meaning is, the religion of God; (Bd, Jel, TA;) accord. to El-Hasan and Mujáhid. (TA.) And لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ ا@للّٰهِ, in the Kur [xxx. 29], means, accord. to Katádeh, [There shall be no changing, or altering,] of the religion of God. (TA.) ― -b3- خَلْقٌ also signifies Anything made smooth. (TA.) [See also مُخَلَّقٌ.] خُلْقٌ خلق خلقة : see خُلُقٌ, in four places. خَلَقُ خلق خلقة inf. n. of خَلِقَ: as such, signifying The being smooth [&c.]. (JK, S. *) [As such also,] in a rock, Freedom from crack or fracture. (S, K.) ― -b2- [And, as such,] The being old, and worn out.

(S, * K, * TA.) And [as an epithet] it is masc. and fem.; (S, K;) because it is originally an inf. n., the inf. n. of أَخْلَقُ meaning “ smooth, ” (S,) [or rather of خَلِقَ meaning “ it was, or became, old, and worn out; ” although it has pls.; and] IB mentions an instance of its dual, خَلَقَانِ: (TA:) Ks says, We have not heard them say, خَلَقَةٌ in any instance: (Lh, TA:) Fr says that it is without ة [as a fem. epithet] because it was originally used as a prefixed noun; for one said, أَعْطِنِى خَلَقَ جُبَّتِكَ and خَلَقَ عِمَامَتِكَ [lit. meaning Give thou to me what is old, and worn out, of thy جبّة and of thy turban]; but Ez-Zejjájee says that this is nought.

(TA.) One says also ثَوْبٌ أَخْلَاقٌ, meaning A garment, or piece of cloth, altogether, or wholly, old and worn out; (Fr, S, K;) every portion of it being خَلَق; (Fr;) like as they said بُرْمَةٌ أَعْشَارٌ &c.: (S:) and in like manner, مُلَآءَةٌ أَخْلَاقٌ. (IAar.) And Ks mentions the saying, أَصْبَحَتْ ثِيَابُهُمْ خُلْقَانًا وَ خَلَقُهُمْ جُدُدًا [Their garments became old, and worn out; and their old and worn-out garments became replaced by new]; with the sing. [in the latter clause] in the place of the pl. خُلْقَان: (TA:) or جُدُدًا may be here put for جَدِيدًا. (L in art. جد.) In the phrase ↓ مِلْحَفَةٌ خُلَيْقٌ [An outer wrapping garment that is a little, or somewhat, old, and worn out], the dim. is without ة because it is [the dim. of] an epithet [applied without ة to a fem. n.], and ة is not affixed to the dims. of epithets [of this kind]: it is like نُصَيُفٌ dim. of نَصَفٌ an epithet applied to a woman. (S, K. * [See Lumsden's Arab. Gram. p. 623: but some of the grammarians consider these instances as anomalous.]) ― -b4- بَاعَهُ بِيعَةَ الخَلَقِ, and بَيْعَ ذِى الخَلَقِ, the latter as used by a poet, [lit. He bought it, or sold it, (app. the former,) as one buys, or sells, the old and worn-out garment, like as we say “ dogcheap, ” and “ cheap as dirt ”], are phrases mentioned, but not explained, by IAar, who cites the following saying: “ أَبْلِغْ فَزَارَةَ أَنِّى قَدْ شَرَيْتُ لَهَا
مَجْدَ الحَيَاةِ بِسَيْفِى بَيْعَ ذِى الخَلَقِ
” [app. meaning Tell thou Fezárah that I have purchased for them life-long glory (lit. the glory of life), with my sword, as cheaply, i. e as easily, as one purchases the old and worn-out garment]. (TA.) ― -b5- سَحَابَةٌ خَلَقَةٌ: see the next paragraph. خَلِقٌ خلق خلقة [part. n. of خَلِقَ]. ― -b2- [Hence,] سحَابَةٌ خَلِقَةٌ A cloud in which is a sign, or trace, of rain; as also ↓ خَلِيقَةٌ : (S, K:) or a cloud giving hope of rain; as also ↓ خَلْقَآءُ ; (JK;) both are said by IAar to signify the same: (TA:) and ↓ خَلَقَةٌ [alone, as a subst., or probably سَحَابَةٌ خَلَقَةٌ,] a cloud that is equable, or uniform, giving hope of rain.

(S.) It is said in a trad., لَيْسَ شَىْءٌ فِى المِيزَانِ أَثْقَلَ مِنْ حُسْنِ الخُلُقِ [Nothing is heavier in the balance in which good and evil will be weighed than goodness of the moral character, &c.] (TA.)

It is said in the Kur [xxvi. 137], إِِنْ هٰذَا إِِلَّا خُلُقُ الأَوَّلِينَ This is nought but a custom of the ancients. (TA.) And in the same [lxviii. 4], وَ إِِنَّكَ لَعَلَى خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ And verily thou art of a great religion. (Jel, TA.) And in a trad. of 'Áïsheh, كَانَ خُلُقُهُ القَرْآنَ, meaning That whereto he clung was the Kur-án, with its rules of discipline and its command and its prohibitions, and the excellences and beauties and gracious things comprised in it. (TA.) ― -b2- نَوْمَةُ الخُلقِ [i. e. الخُلُقِ or ↓ الخُلْقِ ] The sleep of midday, which was prescribed by the Prophet. (Har p. 223. [See also حُمْقٌ and خُرْقٌ.]) خُلْقَةٌ خلق خلقه خلقة Smoothness; (K, TA;) as also ↓ خُلُوقَةٌ and ↓ خَلَاقَةٌ : (K:) but the second of these three, correctly speaking, [as also the third, accord. to analogy, and perhaps the first also,] is an inf. n. of خَلُقَ.
