1 بَغَى بغى بغي غي , (S, K, &c.,) aor. بَغِىَ , (Msb, K,) inf. n. بُغَآءٌ, (S, Mgh, K, &c.,) or this is a simple subst., and the inf. n. is بَغْىٌ, (Msb,) [but, if this be correct, the former is generally used for the latter,] and بُغًى, (Lh, K,) but the first is better known, and is the chaste form, and some say, بِغًى, (TA,) and بُغْيَةٌ and بِغْيَةٌ, (K,) accord. to Th, but others hold these two to be simple substs., and some mention also بَغْيَةٌ, with fet-h, (TA,) and بُغَايَةٌ, (As, S, TA,) He sought; sought for, or after; sought, desired, or endeavoured, to find, and take, or get; (S, Mgh, Msb, K, &c.;) a stray-beast, (As, S, TA,) or any other thing, (S, Mgh, * Msb, * K, * TA,) good or evil; (Lh, TA;) as also ↓ ابتغى and ↓ تبغّى (S, Msb, K) and ↓ استبغى : (K:) or ↓ ابتغى signifies he sought, &c., diligently, studiously, sedulously, or earnestly: (Er-Rághib, TA:) and بَغَى signifies also he loved, or affected, a thing: (MF, TA:) or, accord. to Er-Rághib, the inf. n. signifies the seeking to exceed the just bounds in respect of that which one aims at, or endeavours after, whether one actually exceed or do not; and sometimes it is considered in relation to quantity; and sometimes, in relation to quality. (TA.) You say, بَغَاهُ بِشَرٍّ [He sought him with an evil purpose; or sought to do him evil]. (S and K in art. عقب.) ― -b2- And بَغَاهُ He sought, &c., a thing for him; like بَغَى لَهُ. (Lh, Mgh, * K. *) You say, بَغَاهُ الشَّىْءَ He sought, &c., the thing for him; (S, K;) as also الشَّىْءَ ابغاهُ : (K:) thus you say, اِبْغِنِى كَذَا or كذا أَبْغِنِى and اِبْغَ لِى كذا Seek thou for me such a thing; (TA;) and ضَالَّتِى أَبْغِنِى Seek thou for me my stray-beast: (Mgh:) or الشَّىءَ ابغاهُ signifies He aided, or assisted, him to seek the thing: (Ks, K:) or كَذَا أَبْغِنِى signifies Seek thou for me such a thing; and also Aid thou me to seek such a thing. (JK.) It is said in the Kur [ix. 47], يَبْغُونَكُمُ الفِتْنَةَ They seek, or desire, for you discord, or dissension; or they seeking, &c.: and in the same [iii. 94], تَبْغُونَهَا عِوَجًا Ye seek, or desire, for it, namely, the way [of God], crookedness; or ye seeking, &c.: the first objective complement of the verb being in the accus. case because of the suppression of the preposition ل. (TA.) ― -b3- [Hence, app.,] بَغَانِى دَآءً It procured to me disease; it caused disease to befall me. (Ham p. 794.) And إِِنَّهُ لَذُو بُغَايَةٍ Verily he is one who makes much gain: (JK, K:) but in the M, ذُو بُغَايَةٍ لِلْكَسْبِ, meaning a seeker of gain. (TA.) And مَابُغِىَ لَهُ Good was not appointed to betide him. (TA.) ― -b4- بَغَى عَلَى أَخِيهِ, inf. n. بَغْىٌ, He envied his brother; he wished that a blessing, or cause of happiness, or an excellence, might become transferred from his brother to himself: so says Lh, who holds this to be the primary signification of the verb. (TA.) It is said in a prov., البَغْىُ عِقَالُ النَّصْرِ [Envy is the shackle of aid from God against an enemy or a wrongdoer]. (TA.) ― -b5- Hence, (Lh, TA,) بَغْىٌ signifies The acting wrongfully, injuriously, or tyrannically; (Lh, S, TA;) because the envier so acts towards the envied; his endeavour being to cause, by guile, the blessing of God upon him to depart from him: (Lh, TA:) or the seeking, or endeavouring, to act corruptly, wrongly, or unjustly: (Az, TA:) or the exceeding the due bounds, or just limits, in any way: (S:) accord. to Er-Rághib, it is of two kinds: one of these is approved, and this is the passing beyond the bounds of equity to exercise beneficence, and beyond the bounds of obligatory duties to do what is not obligatory: the other is disapproved, and this is the passing beyond the bounds of that which is true, or right, to do that which is false, or wrong, or to do acts of a doubtful nature: but in most instances it is that which is disapprove. (TA.) You say, بَغَى عَلَيْهِ, (S, K,) and بغى عَلَى النَّاسِ, (Az, Msb,) aor. بَغِىَ , (K,) inf. n. بَغْىٌ, (Msb, K,) He exalted himself against him, or above him; overpowered, or oppressed, him; (Fr, S, K;) acted wrongfully, injuriously, or tyrannically, towards him; and deviated from the right way: (K:) and he acted wrongfully, injuriously, or tyrannically, towards men, or the people, (Az, Msb,) and sought to annoy them, or hurt them. (Az, TA.) Lh mentions, on the authority of Ks, the saying, مَا لِى وَلِلْبَغِ بَعْضِكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ [What have I to do with wrongful conduct, the wrongful conduct of one of you towards another?], for وَلِلْبَغْىِ; ISd thinks, because of the difficulty found in pronouncing the kesreh after the ى. (TA.) بَغَى also signifies He occupied himself with corrupt, wrong, or unjust, conduct: [accord. to Fei,] from the same verb [in a sense to be mentioned below,] said of a wound. (Msb.) Also, aor. بَغِىَ , (TA,) inf. n. بَغْىٌ, (Az, TA,) He magnified himself; or behaved proudly, haughtily, or insolently: (Az, TA:) because he who does so passes beyond the bounds of his proper station to a station that does not belong to him. (TA.) ― -b6- And [hence,] بَغَى فِى مِشيَتِهِ, (K,) inf. n. بَغْىٌ, (TA,) He [app. a horse, and perhaps a man also,] was proud, or self-conceited, and quick, in his gait: (K:) or بَغْىٌ in a horse, (S, TA,) or in the running of a horse, (JK, TA,) is the being proud, or self-conceited, with exceeding briskness or liveliness or sprightliness. (JK, S, TA.) ― -b7- And بَغَتِ السَّمَآءُ, (S, K,) inf. n. بَغْىٌ, (TA,) The sky rained vehemently: (A'Obeyd, S, K:) or exceeded, in rain, the limit of what was wanted. (Er-Rághib, TA.) And بَغَى الوَادِى The valley flowed with water reaching to a place to which it had not reached before. (S, TA.) ― -b8- بَغَتْ, (S, Mgh, Msb, K,) said of a woman, (Th, IKh, S, Msb, and so in some copies of the K,) or of a female slave, (so in other copies of the K,) but it is not restricted to the latter, (TA,) aor. بَغِىَ , (JK, Msb,) inf. n. بِغَآءٌ, (IKh, JK, S, Mgh, Msb, TA,) or بَغْىٌ, (ISd, K,) [but the former, only, is commonly known,] She committed fornication, or adultery; she prostituted herself; (JK, S, Mgh, Msb, K;) because she who does so transgresses her proper bounds; (TA;) as also ↓ بَاغَتْ , (IKh, S, * Msb, K,) inf. n. بِغَآءٌ (IKh, K) and مُبَاغَاةٌ, (K,) said of a female slave: (Msb:) or مباغاة signifies the committing fornication, or adultery, with another. (KL.) It is said in the Kur [xxiv. 33], وَلَا تُكْرِهُو فَتَيَاتِكُمْ عَلَى البِغَآءِ [And compel not ye your young women to prostitute themselves]. (Mgh.) And you say, ↓ خَرَجَتِ المَرْأَةُ تُبَاغِى [The woman went forth for prostituting herself]. (S.) Accord. to the Jema etTefáreek, بِغَآءٌ signifies The knowing of a woman's committing fornication or adultery, or prostituting herself, and approving, or being content: but this, if correct, is an amplification in speech. (Mgh.) ― -b9- بَغَى الجُرْحُ, (JK, S, Msb,) aor. بَغَىَ , inf. n. بَغْىٌ, (JK,) The wound swelled, (S,) and became in a corrupt state, (JK, S, Msb,) and produced thick purulent matter. (JK.) And بَرَأَ جُرْحُهُ عَلَى بَغْىٍ His wound healed having somewhat of corruption in it. (S.) ― -b10- بَغَى, (K,) aor. بَغِىَ , inf. n. بَغْىٌ, (TA,) also signifies He lied; said what was untrue. (K.) مَا نَبْغِى ما نبغى ما نبغي , in the Kur [xii. 65], is said to mean We do not lie: and we do not act wrongfully: or it may mean what do we seek, or desire? (TA.) ― -b2- Also, (K,) inf. n. بَغْىٌ, (TA,) He looked at a thing [to see] how it was; (K;) and so بَغَا, inf. n. بَغْوٌ: mentioned by Kr. (TA.) ― -b3- And, (K,) with the same inf. n., (TA,) He looked, watched, or waited, for a person or thing. (Kr, K.)

3 بَاْغَىَ see 1, latter part, in two places. -A2- Lh mentions the saying, addressed to a pretty woman, إِِنَّكِ لَجَمِيلَةٌ وَلَا تُبَاغِى, as meaning Verily thou art pretty, and mayest thou not be smitten by the [evil] eye: (TA in this art.:) but accord. to some, the verb in this instance belongs to art. بوغ or art. بيغ. (TA in art.

 بوغ.) 4 أَبْغَىَ see 1, in five places. ― -b2- ابغاهُ الشَّىْءَ also signifies He made him, or caused him, to seek the thing; to seek for it, or after it; to seek, or desire, or endeavour, to find, and take, or get, it. (S.)

7 انبغى أنبغ أنبغى أنبغي أنبغيي انبغى انبغي ٱنبغى is said in the S to be quasi-pass. of بَغَيْتُهُ, like as اِنْكَسَرَ is of كَسَرْتُهُ; and Esh-Shiháb says of the aor. that it is quasi-pass. of بَغَاهُ, aor. يَبْغِيهِ, in the sense of طَلَبَهُ: (TA:) [Fei says,] it has been asserted that انبغى is quasi-pass. of بَغَى; but a verb of the measure انفعل is not used as a quasi-pass. unless it implies effort, and the consequence of an action, as in the case of كَسَرْتُهُ, of which the quasi-pass. is اِنْكَسَرَ; which انبغى does not: some, however, allow its being thus used: (Msb:) accord. to Zj, it is as though it were syn. with اِنْطَلَبَ, as quasi-pass. of طَلَبَ, and means It was, or became, suitable, fit, meet, or proper; (Zj, TA;) [or right, and allowable; and good: or very requisite: (see explanations of exs. following:) or it behooved: and] it was, or became, facilitated, or easy; (Er-Rághib, K;) and practicable, or manageable. (Er-Rághib, TA.) Accord. to some, this verb is not used in the pret. tense, but only in the aor.: it is reckoned among verbs imperfectly inflected: (Msb, TA:) but the pret. is mentioned by AZ and Sb and Zj, and by ElKhattábee on the authority of Ks; and was often used by Esh-Sháfi'ee: it is, however, very rare. (TA.) You say, يَنْبَغِى لَكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ كَذَا [It is suitable to thee, or is fit, meet, or proper, &c., for thee, or it behooveth thee, that thou shouldst do such a thing]. (S, TA.) And, accord. to Zj, اِنْبَغَى لِفُلَانٍ أَنْ يَفْعَلَ, as meaning It was, or became, suitable to such a one, or fit, meet, or proper, for him, that he should do, or to do, such a thing. (TA.) And مَا يَنْبَغِى لَكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ هٰذَا, (Lh, K,) and ↓ ما يُبْتَغَى , (K, TA,) with fet-h to the غ, (TA,) and ما انْبَغَى, and ↓ ما ابْتُغِىَ ; (Lh, K;) of which four phrases, the first is given by Lh as explanatory of the third and fourth, and means, accord. to Esh-Shiháb, It is not right, proper, fit, or meet, nor allowable, for thee that thou shouldst do this, or to do this; and it is not good for thee &c.; but he adds that only the aor. has been heard from the Arabs in this sense. (TA.) And يَنْبَغِى أَنْ يَكُونَ كَذَا It is very requisite that it should be so, or that such a thing ought be; [or it ought to be so, or such a thing ought to be; it behooves that it should be so, or such a thing behooves;] it is not well that such a thing should be neglected, or left undone. (Msb.) And Ks is related to have heard, from the Arabs, the phrase, مَا يَنْبَغِى أَنْ يَكُونَ كَذَا, meaning It is not right that it should be so, or that such a thing should be: or it is not good &c. (Msb.) It is said in the Kur [xxxvi. 69], وَمَا عَلَّمْنَاهُ الشِّعْرَ وَمَا يَنْبَغِى لَهُ, i. e. [And we have not taught him poetry, or versification], nor is it right, proper, fit, or meet, for him: (Bd:) or nor is it easy to him, (Bd, Jel, Er-Rághib,) or practicable to him. (Bd, Er-Rághib.)

(Lh, K.) بَغْىٌ بغى بغي غي [originally an inf. n. (see 1)] Much of rain; or much rain: in [some of] the copies of the K, البطر is erroneously put for المطر: (TA:) [and in some, البَغِىُّ for البَغْىُ: in a MS. copy, I find البَغِىُّ الكَثِيرُ مِنَ المَطَرِ: and in the CK, البَغِىُّ الكَثِيْرُ من النَّظَرِ:] or بَغْىُ السَّمَآءِ signifies the main portion, (As, S,) or the vehemence, and the main portion, (Lh, JK, TA,) of the rain of the sky. (As, Lh, JK, S, TA.) Hence the saying, دَفَعْنَا بَغْىَ السَّمَآءِ خَلْفَنَا (As, S, TA) or عَنَّا (Lh, TA) [lit. We drove away the main portion, or the vehemence, and the main portion, of the rain of the sky behind us or from us; meaning it was driven away behind us or from us, or it departed; as is shown in art. دفع]. بُغْيَةٌ بغي بغيه بغية غي غية : see what next follows. بِغْيَةٌ بغي بغيه بغية غي غية and ↓ بُغْيَةٌ (JK, S, Msb, K) and ↓ بَغِيَّةٌ (K) A thing sought; (JK, K;) as also ↓ بَغَايَةٌ [originally an inf. n.

(S.) ― -b3- بَغَايَا also signifies The scouts, or companies of scouts, that precede an army: (S, K, TA:) but the sing. of this is ↓ بَغِيَّةٌ .
