1 زَالَ ذ , aor. يَزُولُ, (K,) and, accord. to the K, also يَزَالُ, which is rare, on the authority of Aboo- 'Alee, but this is the aor. of زَالَ like خَافَ, [which has a different meaning from the former verb,] (MF, TA,) inf. n. زَوَالٌ (K) and زُوُولٌ (Lh, K) [which in all its senses except one mentioned below may app. be pronounced also زُؤُولٌ, like حُؤُولٌ for حُوُولٌ, pl. of حَوْلٌ,] and زَوِيلٌ and زَوْلٌ, (K, TA,) the last thus, with fet-h, accord. to a rule of the K, but in some of the copies زُولٌ, with damm, (TA,) and زَوَلَانٌ, (K,) It went away; passed away; departed; removed; shifted; (K, TA;) was, or became, remote, or absent; ceased to be or exist, or came to nought; (TA;) as also ↓ اِزْوَلَّ , inf. n. اِزْوِلَالٌ; (K;) or, accord. to the O, ↓ اِزْوَأَلَّ , like اِطْمَأَنَّ. (TA.) [See also 7.] Hence, الدُّنْيَا وَشِيكَةُ الزَّوَالِ [The world, or worldly enjoyment or good, is quick in passing away, or coming to nought]. (TA.) And زال زَوَالُهُ, and زَوَالُهَا: see زَوَالٌ: and for the former see also زَوِيلٌ. And زال زَوِيلُهُ, and زَوِيلُهَا: see زَوِيلٌ. And زال الشَّىْءُ عَنْ مَكَانِهِ, (S, TA,) or مَوْضِعِهِ, (Msb,) aor. يَزُولُ, inf. n. زَوَالٌ (S, Msb, TA) &c., as above, (TA,) The thing removed, went away, [or ceased,] from its place; it left, or quitted, its place. (TA.) And زُلْتُ عَنْ مَكَانِى, inf. n. زَوَالٌ and زُوُولٌ, [I went away, &c., from my place.] (K.) [And زال عَنْهُ, said of any affection of the mind or body, It went away, passed away, or ceased, from him; it left him, or quitted him.] And زَالُوا عَنْ مَكَانِهِمْ They turned away from their place; or returned, or went back, and fled, from it. (TA.) And زال عَنِ الرَّأْىِ, aor. يَزُولُ, inf. n. زُوُولٌ, [He turned, or swerved, from the opinion, or judgment, or sentiment.] (Lh, TA.)

And زالت الخَيْلُ بِرُكْبَانِهَا, (K,) inf. n. زِيَالٌ, (TA,) The horses removed from their place with their riders. (K, TA. [Said in the TA to be tropical; but I see not why.]) ― -b2- Hence, زالت الشَّمْسُ, inf. n. زَوَالٌ and زُوُولٌ, without ', (K,) as Th says, (TA,) and زِيَالٌ and زَوَلَانٌ, (tropical:) The sun declined from the meridian. (K, TA.) [And sometimes it signifies (assumed tropical:) The sun set: see 1 in art. دلك.] ― -b3- And hence, but not with زُوُولٌ for an inf. n. in the senses expl. in this sentence and the next following it, (TA,) زال النَّهَارُ, (K, TA,) inf. n. زَوَالٌ (TA) [and app. زِيَالٌ and زَوَلَانٌ], (tropical:) (tropical:) The day became advanced, the sun being somewhat high; syn. اِرْتَفَعَ: (K, TA:) or, as some say, went away; or departed.

(TA.) ― -b5- زال [having for its inf. n., app., زَوَالٌ and زَوِيلٌ and زَوْلٌ (see the first of these below)] signifies also It moved; or was, or became, in a state of motion, commotion, or agitation; syn. تَحَرَّكَ: so in the saying, رَأَيْتُ شَبَحًا ثُمَّ زَالَ [I saw a bodily form or figure: then it moved, &c.].

And زِيلَ زَوِيلُهُ and زَوِيلُهَا and زَوَالُهُ: see زَوِيلٌ: and for the first, see also زَوَالٌ. ― -b2- And زالهُ He separated himself from him; (K;) as also زايلهُ.

(K.) [Accord. to the TA, it seems to be used properly in relation to real things, and tropically in relation to ideal things. One says, زاول الصَّيْدَ He strove to gain possession of, or to catch, i. e. he hunted, the animals of the chase. (See طَرَدَ.)] And زَاوَلْتُهُ عَنِ الأَمْرُ [I strove with him to avert him, or to turn him back, from the affair]. (S, in art. جحس.) Zuheyr says, “ فَبِتْنَا وُقُوفًا عِنْدَ رَأْسِ جَوَادِنَا
يُزَاوِلُنَا عَنْ نَفْسِهِ وَنُزَاوِلُهْ
” [And we passed the night standing at the head of our courser, he striving with us to repel us from himself, and we striving with him to master him]. (S.)

(TA.) ― -b2- Courageous; (K, TA;) in consequence of whose courage, men are abashed (يَتَزَايَلُوا [as though زَوْلٌ in this sense belonged to art. زيل]).

(K.) زَوَالٌ ذ (S, Msb, K) and ↓ زَوِيلٌ and ↓ زَوْلٌ (K) are inf. ns. of زَالَ [q. v.]. (S, Msb, K.) ― -b2- And all signify Motion, commotion, or agitation. (TA in explanation of the first and last, and K in explanation of the second.) [Hence,] ↓ زَالَ زَوَالُهُ, or زَوَالَهُزَالَ , (accord. to different copies of the K,) or ا@للّٰهُ زَوَالَهُزَالَ , (S in art. زيل, and TA,) and ا@للّٰهُ زَوَالَهُأَزَالَ , (S in art. زيل, and K and TA,) are imprecations of destruction, or perdition, or death, (S, K,) and trial, or affliction, upon him to whom they relate: (S:) or such are the [second and] third and fourth of these phrases: but the first is a prayer for one's continuance where he is, [or his continuance in life; lit.] meaning May his motion cease; [and hence, may he continue where he is, or continue in life:] and, as expl. by ISk, the [second and] third and fourth [lit.] signify May [He i. e.] God cause his motion to cease; [and hence, may He, or God, put an end to his life;] these phrases being similar to the saying أَسْكَتَ ا@للّٰهُ نَامَّتَهُ. (TA.) [Thus all four have virtually the same lit. signification. And the first has also another meaning; as will be seen below.] El-Aashà says, “ هٰذَا النَّهَارُ بَدَا لَهَا مِنْ هَمِّهَا
زَوَالَهَامَا بَالُهَا بِاللَّيْلِ زَالَ
” (S, TA,) [app. meaning This is the day-time: an opinion has arisen in her mind such as to turn her from her former opinion and induce her to absent herself, (بَدَآءٌ, I suppose, being understood after بَدَا لَهَا, like as it is after بَدَا لَهُمْ in the Kur xii. 35,) in consequence of her anxiety: what will be her case in the night? may it (her phantom) be absent, like as she is absent: for] the meaning is said to be, زَالَ الخَيَالُ زَوَالَهَا: IAar says, he disliked the phantom only because it roused his desire: or [زَالَ may be here syn. with أَزَالَ, so that] the meaning may be ا@للّٰهُ زَوَالَهَاأَزَالَ [may God make her motion to cease]; and this is corroborated by the reading of AA, زَوَالُهَا, in the nom. case, [i. e. زَوَالُهَازَالَ may her motion cease;] which makes this an instance of [the license termed] الإِِقْوَآء: this, he says, is an old proverbial phrase of the Arabs, and El-Aashà has used it as he heard it: others than AA read [زَوَالَهَا,] in the accus. case, without إِِقْوَآء, holding the meaning to be, may her phantom be absent from us in the night like as she herself is absent in the day-time. (TA.) ↓ زَوِيلُهُزِيلَ , likewise, means His motion ceased, or may his motion cease: or, accord. to Z, he became fixed, or motionless, from fear; or may he become so. (TA in art. زيل.) [See also another rendering of this phrase in the next paragraph.] One says also, وَالعَوِيلُأَخَذَهُ الزَّوِيلُ Commotion, or agitation, (K, TA,) and disquietude of mind, (TA,) and wailing, or raising of the voice in weeping, overcame him. (K, TA.) -A2- See also the next paragraph, in three places. زَوِيلٌ ذ : see the next preceding paragraph, in three places. -A2- Also The side; syn. جَانِبٌ; and so ↓ زَوَالٌ : thus in the sayings, زَوِيلُهُزَالَ and ↓ زَوَالُهُزَالَ , meaning [app. His side became in a state of commotion, or it quivered,] by reason of fright: (K:) [or] زَوِيلٌ signifies the heart: so in the saying, زَوِيلُهُزِيلَ [His heart became removed from its place]: (S:) a prov., applied to one whom an event that has disquieted him has befallen: as also ↓ زَوَالُهُزِيلَ : (Meyd:) [see also two other renderings of the former phrase in the next preceding paragraph:] Dhu-r-Rummeh says, describing the egg of an ostrich, “ وَيَيْضَآءُ لَا تَنْحَاشُ مِنَّا وَأُمُّهَا
مِنَّا زَوِيلُهَاإِِذَا مَا رَأَتْنَا زِيلَ
” meaning زِيلَ قَلْبُهَا مِنَ الفَزَعِ [i. e. And a white thing (the egg which he is describing) will not take fright, and flee from us, or will not shrink from us, while its mother, when she sees us, her heart becomes removed from its place by fright in consequence of the approach of us]: (S in art. زيل, and Meyd:) or, as some relate it, مِنَّازَالَ زَوِيلُهَا [which means her heart quits its place &c.]: (TA:) and the former reading may mean the same as this. (IB, TA in art. زيل.) زَوَّالٌ ذ Having much زَوْل, i. e. motion. (TA.) ― -b2- Accord. to J, it occurs in an أُرْجُوزَة, cited by AA, as meaning That moves much in his gait, but traverses a short space: but the right word in this case is زَوَّاك, as is shown by the rhyme. (IB, K.) زويلى ذ , with damm, [app. زُوَّيْلَى, like قُبَّيْطَى &c., for, as it is not said to be a dim., I know no other form of word with which to compare it,] A thing like a ladle, belonging to sailors. (TA.) زَائِلٌ ذ [Going away; passing away; departing; transient; shifting; becoming remote, or absent; ceasing to be or exist; nonexistent: &c.: part. n. of زَالَ, q. v.]. ― -b2- [Hence,] لَيْلٌ زَائِلُ النُّجُومِ [properly A starless night, or night of which the stars are absent: but expl. as meaning] (assumed tropical:) a long night. (Z, TA.) ― -b3- زَالَ زَائِلُ الظِّلِّ: see 1. زَائِلَةٌ ذ [from زَائِلٌ, the ة being affixed to transfer the word from the category of epithets to that of substantives,] Whatever has a soul, (K, TA,) of animals; that moves (يَزُولُ) from its place: (TA:) or anything that moves; (K, TA;) that does not remain fixed in its place; applied to a man and to other things. (TA.) ― -b2- زَوَائِلُ is its pl.: (TA:) and signifies [particularly] Animals of the chase. (K, TA.) ― -b3- And [hence,] (tropical:) Women. (O, K, TA.) One says رَجُلٌ رَامِى الزَّوَائِلِ (assumed tropical:) A man knowing in respect of the diseases, or faults, (أَدْوَآء,) of women: (O:) or (tropical:) skilful in the making of women to incline to him: whence the saying of Ibn-Meiyádeh, “ وَكُنْتُ ا@مْرَأً أَرْمِى الزَّوَائِلَ مَرَّةً
فَأَصْبَحْتُ قَدْ وَدَعْتُ رَمْىَ الزَّوَائِلِ
” (tropical:) [And I was a man having the art of making women to incline to me, once; but I have become such that I have relinquished the art of making women to incline to me]: this was a man who used to beguile women in his time of youthful vigour by his beauty; but when he became hoary and aged, no woman inclined to him. (TA.) ― -b4- Also (tropical:) The stars: (K, TA:) because of their motion from the east and the west in their revolving. (TA.) ― -b5- See also 1, near the end of the paragraph; and زَوْلٌ, last sentence but three. زَوْلٌ أَزْوَلُ ذ (S, * TA) has an intensive signification [i. e. (assumed tropical:) A great wonder; or a very wonderful thing]: (TA:) [or a wonderful event that happens to one, preventing his fleeing;] accord. to Abu-sSemh, أَزْوَلُ denotes the happening to one of an event such as prevents him from fleeing. (IB, TA.) مِزْوَلَةٌ ذ A certain instrument pertaining to astronomers, by means of which is known the declining of the sun from the meridian: [a sun-dial: used in this sense in the present day:] a vulgar term: pl. مَزَاوِلُ. (TA.) مُزَاوَلٌ ذ pass. part. n. of 3: one says, مَا زَالَ هٰذَا الأَمْرُ مُزَاوَلًا بِأَيْدِيهِمْ (assumed tropical:) [This affair ceased not to be striven, or sought, to be accomplished by means of their hands]. (TA.) -A2- Also Frightened by a زَوْل, i. e. a form, or figure, appearing in the night. (TA.)
