Root: س م م

Words from this Root in the Grand Qur’ān:

a) Total occurrences: 4 

b) No of constructions: 3 Noun

The basic perception infolded in the Root, in the words of Ibne Faris [died-1005] is:

فيه يدلُّ على مدخلٍ في الشيء، كالثَّقب وغيره، ثم يشتقّ منه.

That, it leads to the perception of an inlet, a hole, vent, hollow, and other types within a thing; thereafter deriving out of that.

Lane Lexicon: [To poison, put poison into; a place of perforation, of transpiercing, or of passing through; pores of body. In the present day it is commonly applied to a violent and intensely-hot wind, generally occurring in the spring or summer, in Egypt and the Egyptian deserts usually proceeding from the south-east or south-south-east, gradually darkening the air to a deep purple hue, whether or not (according to the nature of the tract over which it blows) accompanied by clouds of dust or sand, and at length entirely concealing the sun; but seldom lasting more than about a quarter of an hour or twenty minutes:]   

Poison, a small hole, pores of body, scorching wind/heat discharging flame.
