(Ham ubi suprà.) ذَبٌّ, (M, L,) or ↓ ذَابٌّ , (K,) [the former correct, and perhaps the latter also,] applied to a camel, That does not, or will not, remain still, or motionless, in a place. (M, L, K.) A poet says, “ فَكَأَنَّنَا فِيهِمْ جِمَالٌ ذَبَّةٌ
” [And it was as though we were, among them, camels that would not remain still in a place]: which shows that ذَبٌّ is not an inf. n. used as an epithet; for, were it so, he had said جِمَالٌ ذَبٌّ. (M, L.) ― -b2- الذَّبُّ (tropical:) The wild bull; [a species of bovine antelope;] also called ذَبُّ الرِّيَادِ; (T, S, M, K;) so called because he goes to and fro, not remaining in one place; (M;) or because he pastures going to and fro; (T, S, * M;) or because his females pasture with him, going to and fro: (T:) and called also ↓ الأَذَبُّ , (T, K,) by poetic license, for الذَّبُّ; (T;) and ↓ الذُّنْبُبُ .

[properly speaking], and is used as such in the Kur xxii. 72: (M:) the pl. (of pauc., S, Msb) is أَذِبَّهٌ and (of mult., S, Msb) ذِبَّانٌ (S, M, Msb, K) and ذُبٌّ, (M, K,) the last mentioned by Sb, accord. to the dial. of Temeem. (M.)

And أَبُو الذُّبَابِ [The father of the fly] is an appellation used as meaning (assumed tropical:) He who has stinking breath; and some say أَبُو الذِّبَّانِ [the father of the flies]: (M, TA:) and is especially applied to 'Abd-El-Melik Ibn-Marwán: (M, A, TA:) whence the saying, أَبْخَرُ مِنْ أَبِى الذُّبَابِ (A, TA) and أَبِى الذِّبَّانِ (TA) [More stinking in breath than Abu-dh-Dhubáb and Abu-dh-Dhibbán]. ― -b2- [Hence,] (tropical:) Evil, or mischief; (A, K;) and annoyance, or harm; as in the saying, أَصَابَنِى ذُبَابٌ (tropical:) [Evil, &c., befell me]; (A;) and أَصَابَ فُلَانًا مِنْ فُلَانٍ ذُبَابٌ لَاذِعٌ (assumed tropical:) Evil, or mischief, [lit. a hurting fly] fell upon such a one from such a one: (T:) or (tropical:) continual evil, as in the saying, أَصَابَكَ ذُبَابٌ مِنْ هٰذَا الأَمْرِ (tropical:) [Continual evil hath befallen thee from this thing, or event]; and شَرُّهَا ذُبَابٌ (tropical:) [Her, or its, or their, evil is a continual evil]. (TA.) ― -b3- (assumed tropical:) Ill luck. (T, K.)

(M.) ― -b7- (tropical:) The إِِنْسَان [as meaning the pupil, or apple,] of the eye: (AZ, T, S, M, A, K:) so in the saying, هُوَ أَعَزُّ عَلَىَّ مِنْ ذُبَابِ العَيْنِ (tropical:) [He is dearer to me than the apple of the eye]: (A:) [ISd says,] I think it to be so termed as being likened to the ذُبَاب [properly so called; i.e. the fly]. (M.) And الذُّبَابُ also signifies (assumed tropical:) A black speck, or spot, in the interior of the حَدَقَة [or dark part] of the eye of the horse. (M, K.) The pl. is as above. (M.) ― -b8- ذُبَابُ السَّيْفِ (T, S, M, A, Msb, K) and ↓ ذُبَابَةٌ السَّيْفِ (TA) (tropical:) The حَدّ, (M, K,) or طَرَف, (S, Msb,) [each app. here meaning the point, or extremity, though the former also means the edge,] of the sword, (S, M, Msb, K,) which is the part wherewith one strikes: (S, Msb:) or its extremity with which one is pierced, or transpierced; and the حَدّ [here meaning edge] with which one strikes is called its غِرَار: (En-Nadr, T:) or its tapering, or pointed, extremity; expl. by طَرَفُهُ المُتَطَرِّفُ: (M, K:) or the point (حَدّ) of its extremity (M, A) which is between its شَفْرَتَانِ: (M:) the parts of its two edges that are on either side of it are its ظُبَتَانِ: the ridge in the middle of it, on the inner and outer sides, is called the عَيْر; and each has what are termed غِرَارَانِ, which are the part between the عَيْر and each one of the ظُبَتَانِ on the outer side of the sword and the corresponding portion of the inner side, each of the غِرَارَانِ being on the inner side of the sword and its outer side. (AZ, T, TA.) [The swords of the Arabs, in the older times, were generally straight, twoedged, and tapering to a point; and so are many of them in the present day; a little wider towards the point than towards the hilt.] Hence the saying, ثَمَرَةُ السَّوْطِ يَتْبَعُهَا ذُبَابُ السَّيْفِ (tropical:) [The knot, or tail, at the end of the whip is followed by the point of the sword; i. e., whipping (if it effect not the desired correction) is followed by slaughter].
