Root: د ث ر

Words from this Root in the Grand Qur’ān:

a) Total occurrences: 1 Noun

Ibn Faris [died-1005] stated:

(مقاييس اللغة)

وهو تضاعُفُ شيءٍ وتناضُدُه بعضِه على بعض. فالدَّثْر: المال الكثير.
والدِّثار: ما تدثَّر به الإنسانُ، وهو فوق الشِّعار.

Primary signification is doubling something and placing some part of it over another. Thereby it denotes piles of wealth, abundant wealth; and: الدِّثار signifies that by which man covers himself and it is placed over the coat.

Lane Lexicon: It became covered with sand and dust blown over it by the wind: this is the primary signification:  or it became effaced, or obliterated,  inf. n. اِدَثُّرٌّ, (T,) He wrapped himself with a دثار: (T, S, Msb, TA:) and تدثّر بِالثَّوْبِ he enveloped himself entirely with the garment. (M, K.) ― -b2- [Hence,] هُوَ يَتَدَثَّرُ بِالمَالِ (tropical:) He is abundant in wealth.
