[See 1, near the beginning of the paragraph.]) ― -b2- And [hence,] Wine; (S, A, * K;) as also ↓ رَيَاحٌ : (S, K:) so called because the drinker thereof becomes brisk, lively, or sprightly; or, accord. to IHsh, because he becomes affected with briskness, liveliness, or sprightliness, disposing him to generous actions: in the L, [which mentions these two words in art. ريح,] the ا in the former word is said to be substituted for ى [and hence the ى in the latter if such be the case]. (TA.) -A3- See also رَاحَةٌ, in four places. رَوْحٌ , as an epithet; fem. with ة: see رَيِّحٌ, in two places. -A2- Also A gentle wind; a gentle gale; a breeze; the commencement of a wind before it becomes strong; or the breath of the wind when weak: (S, K, TA:) or the cold, or coolness, of such gentle wind.

Breath; like رُوحٌ]: said to be the primary signification: (MF:) or spirit; [like رُوحٌ;] syn. نَفْسٌ; as in the saying, أَحْيَا النَّاسَ بِرَوْحِهِ [He (meaning God) hath quickened, or vivified, mankind with his spirit: or perhaps the right reading is بِرُوحِهِ]. (A.) ― -b3- See also رَاحَةٌ, with which it is syn. (S, K.) ― -b4- Also (assumed tropical:) Joy, happiness, or gladness; (AA, MF, TA;) said to be a metaphorical meaning, from the same word as syn. with نفس; (MF;) and ↓ رُوحٌ likewise has this meaning: (IAar, TA:) or the former, rest, or ease, from grief, or sorrow, of heart. (As, TA.) In the saying of 'Alee, فَبَاشَرُوا رَوْحَ اليَقِينِ or اليقين رُوحَ , the phrase روح اليقين is thought by ISd to mean (assumed tropical:) The joy and happiness that arise from certainty. (TA. [See art. بشر.]) ― -b5- Also (assumed tropical:) Mercy (S, K, TA) of God; thus called as being a cause of rest, or ease; (TA;) and so ↓ رِيحٌ ; (K;) and ↓ رَيْحَانٌ ; (L;) and ↓ رُوحٌ is said by Az to have this meaning in the Kur iv. 169: the pl. of the first of these three words [and of the last, and accord. to some a pl. of the second also,] is أَرْوَاحٌ. (TA.) رُوحٌ  The soul, spirit, or vital principle; syn. نَفْسٌ; (IAar, IAmb, L, Msb, TA, and S and K &c. in art. نفس; [but there is a difference between these two words, for they are not always interchangeable, as I have shown in art. نفس;]) [i. e.] مَا بِهِ حَيَاةُ الأَنْفُسِ; (K; [see also رَوْحٌ, third sentence;]) often occurring in the Kur and the Traditions in different senses, but generally signifying [as explained above, i. e.] the vital principle; (IAth, TA;) [or the nervous fluid; or animal spirit;] a subtile vaporous substance, which is the principle of vitality and of sensation and of voluntary motion; also called the رُوح حَيَوَانِىّ; (KT in explanation of the term نَفْسٌ;) or a subtile body, the source of which is the hollow of the corporeal heart, and which diffuses itself into all the other parts of the body by means of the pulsing veins, or arteries: (KT in explanation of the term الرُّوحُ الحَيَوَانِىُّ: [so too نَفْسٌ; q. v.: see also Gen. ix. 4: many of the ancients believed the soul to reside in the blood: see Aristotle, De Anim. i. 2, and Virgil's Æn. ix. 349:]) or the vital principle in man: (Fr, TA:) or the breath which a man breathes, and which pervades the whole body: [and this seems to be the original idea expressed by the word:] after its exit, he ceases to breathe; and when it has completely gone forth, his eyes remain gazing towards it until they close; called in Pers. جَانْ: (AHeyth, TA:) accord. to the Sunnees, the rational soul, (النَّفْسُ النَّاطِقَةُ, [also termed الرُّوحُ الإِِنْسَانِىُّ,]) which is adapted to the faculty of making known its ideas by means of speech, and of understanding speech, and which perishes not with the perishing of the body, being a substance, not an accident; as is shown by the words in the Kur iii. 163, which refer to the روح: (Msb:) most of the doctors of the fundamentals of religion forbid the diving into this matter, because God has abstained from making it known: (TA:) the philosophers say that it is the blood, by the exhausting of which the life ceases: (Msb:) the word is masc., (IAar, IAmb, Az, S, M, A, Msb, K, *) thus, with the Arabs, differing from نَفْسٌ, for this they make fem., (IAar, IAmb, Msb,) but the former is also fem., (S, M, A, Msb, K,) app. as meaning نَفْسٌ, (Msb,) as is said in the R; (TA;) and most hold it to be as often fem. as it is masc.: (MF:) one says خَرَجَ رُوحُهُ (IAar, Az, TA) [and also خَرَجَتْ رُوحُهُ, meaning His soul departed, or went forth]: the pl. is أَرْوَاحٌ. (S, Msb.) ― -b2- Also i. q. نَفْخٌ (K) [properly A blowing with the mouth; but here] meaning wind that issues from the رُوح; (TA;) wind, or breath. (ADk, TA.) Dhu-r-Rummeh says, respecting fire that he had struck, and upon which he bade his companion to blow, أَحْيِهَا بِرُوحِكَ Give life to it, or enliven it, with thy wind [or breath]. (TA.) And one says, مَلَأَ القِرْبَةَ مِنْ رُوحِهِ He filled the skin with his wind; with his breath. (ADk, TA.) ― -b3- [Hence,] الرُّوحُ also signifies (assumed tropical:) Inspiration, or divine revelation; (Zj, Th, K;) such as is imparted by means of an angel: thus in the Kur xvi. 2 and xl. 15: so called because it quickens from the death of infidelity, and thus is, to a man, like the رُوح which is the vital principle of his body: (T:) or (so says Zj accord. to the L, but in the K “ and ” ) the prophetic commission. (Zj, K.) ― -b4- And (assumed tropical:) The Kur-án; (IAar, Zj, S, * A, * K;) whereby God's creatures are [spiritually] quickened, and guided to the right way. (TA.) So in the trad., تَحَايَوْا بِذِكْرِ اللّٰهِ وَ رُوحِهِ (tropical:) [Revive yourselves with God's book of religion and religious laws, (or ذِكْر may here have some other meaning,) and his Kur-án]. (TA. [Mentioned also in the A; in a copy of which, in the place of تَحَايَوْا, I find تَحَابُوا, an evident mistranscription.]) ― -b5- And (assumed tropical:) What God ordains and commands (K, TA) by means of his assistants and angels. (TA.) ― -b6- Also Jibreel [i. e. Gabriel]; (S, * A, * K;) called in the Kur [xxvi. 193] الرُّوحُ الأَمِينُ, and [in ii. 81] رُوحُ القُدُسِ or القُدْسِ, as related by Az on the authority of Th. (TA.) [The last of these appellations, or generally, but incorrectly, الرُّوحُ القُدُسُ, is applied by the Eastern Christians among the Arabs to The Holy Spirit; the Third Person of the Trinity.] ― -b7- And [sometimes Our Lord] Jesus. (S, * A, * K.) ― -b8- And A certain angel, (I'Ab, K,) in the Seventh Heaven, (I'Ab, TA,) whose face is like that of a man, and his body like that of the [other] angels: (I'Ab, K:) or certain creatures resembling mankind, but not men: so in the Kur lxxviii. 38: (Zj:) or the watchers over the angels who are watchers over the sons of Adam, whose faces are said to be like the faces of men, and whom the other angels see not, like as we see not the watchers nor the [other] angels. (Th.) ― -b9- See also رَوْحٌ, in three places. -A2- Also pl. of رَؤُوحٌ: (L:) ― -b2- and of أَرْوَحُ. (S &c.) رَوَحٌ  : see رَائِحٌ, of which it is said to be a quasi-pl. n., in three places. -A2- Also Width, wideness, or ampleness. (S, K.) El-Mutanakhkhil [in the TA El-Muntakhal] El-Hudhalee says, “ لٰكِنْ كَبِيرُ بْنُ هِنْدٍ يَوْمَ ذٰلِكُمُ
فُتْخُ الشَّمَائِلِ فِى أَيْمَانِهِمْ رَوَحُ
” (S, TA,) meaning But Kebeer Ibn-Hind, a tribe of Hudheyl, on that day, were lax in the joints of the left hands by reason of vehement pulling [of the bows], having wideness in their right hands by reason of vehement striking with the sword. (TA.) ― -b2- And [particularly] Width, or wideness, in the space between the thighs: (TA:) or width, or wideness, (S, Mgh, K,) in, (S, K,) or of, (Mgh,) [or between,] the two legs, (S, Mgh, K,) less than what is termed فَحَجٌ, (S, K,) or less than فَجَجٌ, (A, Mgh,) with wideness between the fore parts of the feet, and nearness of the heels, each to the other: (S:) or [simply] wideness between the fore parts of the feet, and nearness of the heels, each to the other: (Msb:) or a spreading in the fore part of each foot: (Lth, Mgh, Msb:) or a turning over of the foot upon its outer side: IAar says that رَوَحٌ in the legs is less than فَدَعٌ, and this is less than عَقَلٌ. (TA.) -A3- هٰذَا الأَمْرُ بَيْنَنَا رَوَحٌ means This is a thing, or an affair, which we do by turns; as also عَوَرٌ. (TA.) رِيحٌ  originally رِوْحٌ, the و being changed into ى because of the preceding kesreh, (T, S, Msb,) as is shown by its dim. mentioned below; (T, Msb;) Sb held it to be of the measure فِعْلٌ; and Abu-l-Hasan, فِعْلٌ and فُعْلٌ; [if the latter, originally رُيْحٌ;] (TA;) [Wind; i. e.] the air that is made to obey [the will of God] and to run its course between heaven and earth: (Msb, TA:) or the breath (نَسِيم) of the air; and in like manner, of anything: (L, TA:) said to be thus called because it generally brings رَوْح and رَاحَة [i. e. rest, or ease]: (IAmb, MF:) one says رِيحٌ and ↓ رِيحَةٌ , like دَارٌ and دَارَةٌ; (S;) [using the latter as a more special term; for] رِيحَةٌ signifies a portion of wind (طَائِفَةٌ مِنْ رِيحٍ) [meaning a wind of short duration; or a breath, puff, blast, or gust, of wind]; (Sb, M;) but رِيحٌ and ↓ رِيحَةٌ may be used in the same sense; i. e. the latter may be used as syn. with the former, and they are mentioned by some [as analogous] with كَوْكَبٌ and كَوْكَبَةٌ: (Sb, L:) رِيْح is of the fem. gender (IAmb, L, Msb) in most cases; (Msb;) and all the other names for wind are fem. except إِِعْصَارٌ, which is masc.; (IAmb, Msb;) but ريح is sometimes made masc. as meaning هَوَآءٌ: (AZ, Msb:) [it is used by physicians as signifying flatus, flatuosity, or flatulence; as in the phrase رِيحٌ غَلِيظَةٌ a gross flatus:] the pl. [of pauc.] is أَرْوَاحٌ (S, Mgh, Msb, K, &c.) and أَرْيَاحٌ, (S, Msb, K,) the latter used by some, but disallowed by AHát because there is in it no kesreh to cause the و to be changed into ى, (L, Msb,) and [the pl. of mult. is] رِيَاحٌ, (S, Mgh, Msb, K, &c.,) with ى because of the kesreh, (Msb,) and رِيَحٌ; (K, but not found by SM in any other lexicon;) and the pl. pl. is أَرَاوِيحُ [pl. of أَرْوَاحٌ] and أَرَايِيحُ [pl. of أَرْيَاحٌ]: (K:) the dim. of رِيحٌ is ↓ رُوَيْحَةٌ . (T, Msb.) رِيَاحٌ, or another form of pl., is often used in a good sense; and the sing., in an evil sense; because the Arabs say that the clouds are not made to give rain save by diverse winds blowing together; and this distinction is observed in the Kur-án. (L.) Hence, it is related in a trad., that he [Mohammad] used to say, when wind rose, اَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا رِيَاحًا وَ لَا تَجْعَلْهَا رِيحًا [O God, make it to be winds, and made it not to be a wind]. (TA.) [But this distinction is not always observed.] One says, فُلَانٌ يَمِيلُ مَعَ كُلِّ رِيحٍ (tropical:) [Such a one inclines, or turns, with every wind]. (TA.) And فُلَانٌ كَالرِّيحِ المُرْسَلَةِ [Such a one is like the wind that is sent forth to drive the clouds, and produce rain; (see the Kur xxv. 50;)] meaning, (tropical:) quick, or prompt, to do acts of kindness, or beneficence. (A.) And رَجُلٌ سَاكِنُ الرِّيحِ (tropical:) A man who is calm, sedate, staid, or grave. (A.) ― -b2- Also (assumed tropical:) Predominance, or prevalence; and power, or force. (S, K.) A poet says, (S,) namely, Suleyk Ibn-Es-Sulakeh, or Taäbbata-Sharrà, or Aashà of the tribe of Fahm, (TA, and so in one of my copies of the S,) “ أَتَنْظُرَانِ قَلِيلًا رَيْثَ غَفْلَتِهِمْ
أَوْ تَعْدُوَانِ فَإِِنَّ الرِّيحَ لِلْعَادِى
” (assumed tropical:) [Will ye two await, a little, the time of their inadvertence, or will ye act aggressively? for prevalence is for the aggressor]. (S.) And hence the phrase in the Kur [viii. 48], وَ تَذْهَبَ رِيحُكُمْ (assumed tropical:) [And your predominance, or power, depart]: (S:) [or in this latter instance it has the meaning next following.] ― -b3- (tropical:) Aid against an enemy; or victory, or conquest: (K, TA:) and (tropical:) a turn of good fortune. (A, K, TA.) One says, ذَهَبَتْ رِيحُهُمْ (tropical:) Their turn of good fortune departed. (A.) And إِِذَا هَبَّتْ رِيَاحُكَ فَاغْتَنِمْهَا (tropical:) [When thy turns of good fortune come, avail thyself of them]. (A.) And الرِّيحُ لِآلِ فُلَانٍ (tropical:) Aid against the enemy, or victory or conquest, or the turn of good fortune, is to the family of such a one. (TA.) ― -b4- See also رَوْحٌ. ― -b5- And see رَائِحَةٌ (with which it is syn.), in four places. ― -b6- Also (assumed tropical:) A good, sweet, or pleasant, thing. (K.) ― -b7- The pl. أَرْوَاحٌ occurs in a trad. as meaning (tropical:) The jinn, or genii; because they are [supposed to be often] invisible, like the wind. (TA.) رَاحَةٌ  Rest, repose, or ease; contr. of تَعَبٌ; (TA;) cessation of trouble, or inconvenience, and of toil, or fatigue; (Msb;) [or freedom therefrom;] and ↓ رَوْحٌ signifies the same as رَاحَةٌ, (S, A, K,) from الاِسْتِرَاحَةُ; (S, A;) like ↓ رَوَاحٌ [mentioned in the first paragraph as an inf. n. in a similar sense, as are also رَاحَةٌ and ↓ رَوْحَةٌ and ↓ رَوَاحَةٌ and ↓ رَوِيحَةٌ , i. e., as meaning the experiencing relief from grief &c.]. (TA.) You say, ↓ مَا لِفُلَانٍ فِى هٰذَا الأَمْرِ مِنْ رَوَاحٍ i. e. رَاحَةٍ [There is not, for such a one, in this affair, or case, or event, any rest, &c.]. (TA.) And اِفْعَلْ ذٰلِكَ فِى سَرَاحٍ وَ رَوَاحٍ (tropical:) Do thou that in a state of ease (S, A, K) and rest. (A.) ― -b2- See also 4, near the middle of the paragraph. -A2- (assumed tropical:) A wife; syn. عِرْسٌ: (K:) because one trusts to her, or relies upon her, and becomes quiet, or easy, in mind. (TA.) -A3- The hand; syn. كَفٌّ: (S, K:) or [rather] the palm of the hand; (Msb, MF;) for the term كَفّ includes the راحة with the fingers: (MF:) pl. ↓ رَاحٌ , (S, A, * Msb, K, *) [or rather this, said in the K to be syn. with رَاحَاتٌ, is a coll. gen. n., of which رَاحَةٌ is the n. un.,] and [the pl. is] رَاحَاتٌ. (Msb, K.) You say, دَفَعُوهُ بِالرَّاحِ [They pushed him with the palms of the hands]. (A.) The saying of a poet, “ ↓ إِِذَا دَلَكَتْ شَمْسُ النَّهَارِ بِرَاحِ
” is explained as meaning When the sun of day has set, and men, looking towards it, shield themselves from its rays with the palms of their hands: or, accord. to IAar, when the [sun of] day has become dark, by reason of the dust of battle, and it is as though it were setting, and people have found rest from its heat. (L. [See also بَرَاحٌ, in art. برح; where other readings are mentioned.]) ― -b2- [Hence, app., as seems to be indicated in the TA,] رَاحَةُ الكَلْبِ (tropical:) A certain plant. (K, TA.) ― -b3- And ذُو الرَّاحَةِ (assumed tropical:) A sword of El-Mukhtár Ibn-Abee-' Obeyd (K, TA) Eth-Thakafee. (TA.) ― -b4- رَاحَةٌ also signifies A court, an open area, or a yard, (K, TA,) of a house. (TA.) One says, تَرَكْتُهُ أَنْقَى مِنَ الرَّاحَةِ (K, TA) i. e. I left him, or it, more clear than the court, open area, or yard, [of a house,] or than the palm of the hand; (TA;) meaning, (assumed tropical:) without anything. (K, TA.) ― -b5- And ↓ رَاحٌ signifies also Plain and open tracts of land, producing much herbage, (ISh, K,) hard, but comprising soft places and [what are termed] جَرَاثِيم [pl. of جُرْثُومَةٌ, q. v.], not forming any part of [the bed of] a torrent nor of a valley; (ISh;) one whereof is termed رَاحَةٌ. (ISh, K.) ― -b6- Also The plicature of a garment, or piece of cloth: (K, TA:) or the original plicature thereof: so in the saying, in a trad., respecting a new garment, or piece of cloth, اِطْوِهِ عَلَى رَاحَتِهِ [Fold thou it in the manner of its original plicature]. (TA.) رَوْحَةٌ  : see رَاحَةٌ. ― -b2- Also A journey in the evening, or afternoon: an inf. n. of un. of رَاحَ: (L:) pl. رَوْحَاتٌ. (Ham p. 521.)

” i. e. [I put my plaited thongs, and the curved pieces of wood, or the cover, of the camel's saddle, upon the back of (a camel like)] a wild bull rained upon; for when he is rained upon, he runs vehemently: (S, TA:) but the reading commonly known is, “ بَلْ خِلْتُ أَعْلَاقِى وَ جُِلْبَ كُورِ

You say, الشَّىْءِ وَجَدْتُ رِيحَ and رَائِحَتَهُ in the same sense [i. e. I perceived the odour of the thing]. (S.) And لِهٰذِهِ البَقْلَةِ رَائِحَةٌ طَيِّبَةٌ [This herb, or leguminous plant, has a sweet odour]. (L.) ― -b2- It is said in the K, that مَا فِى وَجْهِهِ رَائِحَةٌ means (tropical:) There is not in his face any blood: but [SM says that] this requires consideration; for, accord. to A'Obeyd, one says, أَتَانَا فُلَانٌ وَ مَا فِى وَجْهِهِ رَائِحَةُ دَمٍ مِنْ الفَرَقِ (tropical:) [Such a one came to us not having in his face any tinge of blood by reason of fright, or fear]: and accord. to the A [and the Mgh], one says of a person who has come in fright, or fear, أَتَانَا وَ مَا فِى رَجْهِهِ رَائِحَةُ دَمٍ: (TA:) [accord. to Mtr, however,] one sometimes says, وَ مَا فِى وَجْهِهِ رَائِحَةٌ, without adding دم; and an instance of this occurs in a trad. of Aboo-Jahl.
