(M in art. سمدر.) سِدْرٌ  [a coll. gen. n., The species of lote-tree called by Linnćus rhamnus spina Christi; and by Forskĺl, rhamnus nabeca;] the tree, or trees, of which the fruit is called نَبِق and نَبْق: (S, M, Mgh, Msb, K:) sing., (Msb,) or [rather] n. un., (S, M, K,) سِدْرَةٌ: (S, M, Msb, K:) and sometimes سِدْرٌ is used as meaning the smallest or smaller of numbers [generally denoting from three to ten inclusively]: (Ibn-Es-Sarráj, Msb:) AHn says, accord. to Aboo-Ziyád, the سِدْر is of the kind called عِضَاه, and is of two species, عُبْرِىٌّ and ضَالٌ: the عبرى is that which has no thorns except such as do not hurt: the ضال has thorns [which hurt]: the سدر has a broad round leaf: and sometimes people alight and rest beneath a tree of this kind; but the ضال is small: the best نبق that is known in the land of the Arabs is in Hejer (هَجَر), in a single piece of land which is appropriated to the Sultán alone: it is the sweetest of all in taste and odour: the mouth of him who eats it, and the garments of him who has it upon him, diffuse an odour like that of perfume: (M, TA:) it is [also] said that the سدر is of two species; whereof one grows in the cultivated lands, and its leaves are used in the ablution termed غُسْل, and its fruit is sweet; and the other grows in the desert, and its leaves are not so used, and its fruit is juicy: the زُعْرُور is so described that it may be supposed to be the wild نبق: (Msb:) when سِدْرٌ is used absolutely, with relation to the ablution termed غُسْل, it means the ground leaves of the tree so called: (Mgh, * Msb:) the pl. of سِدْرَةٌ is سِدْرَاتٌ and سِدِرَاتٌ and سِدَرَاتٌ (S, K) and سِدَرٌ (S, M, K) and سُدُورٌ, (M, K,) which last is extr.

(MF, TA.) سَدَرٌ  [see 1]. You say, فِى بَصَرِهِ سَدَرٌ, and ↓ سَمَادِيرُ , In his sight is a confusedness, so that he does not see well.

سَدِرٌ تَوَاكَلُهُ القَوَائِمُ أَجْرَدُ
” [And as though the first heaven, with the angels around it, were the sea, the winds deserting it, and smooth]: (S, M, TA: [but in the M and TA, for حَوْلَهُ, we find حَوْلَهَا; and in the S, for أَجْرَدُ, we find أَجْرَبُ, which is inconsistent with the rhyme of the poem:]) by القوائم he means the winds; and by تواكله, [for تَتَوَاكَلُهُ,] تَرَكَتْهُ [or rather تَتْرُكُهُ]: he likens the sky to the sea when calm: (TA:) Th quotes thus: “ وَكَأَنَّ بِرْقِعَ وَالمَلَائِكُ تَحْتَهَا

” and says that the poet likens the angels, with respect to their fear of God, to a man affected with a vertigo [lit., turning round, though it would seem more appropriate had he said, the poet likens them to a camel so affected, whom his four legs failed: he prefaces this explanation with the words, سَدِرٌ يَدُورُ وَقَوَائِمُ أَرْبَعُ هُمُ المَلَائِكَةُ; to which he or ISd adds, لَا يَدْرِى كَيْفَ خَلْقُهُم: but (using a common phrase of ISd) I can only say, لَا أَدْرِى كَيْفَ هٰذَا; unless there be some omission in the transcription]: (M, TA:) Sgh says that the correct reading is سِدْرٌ, meaning the kind of tree so called, not the sea; and the author of the Námoos adopts his opinion; but MF rejects it: (TA:) some read رَقْعًا [in the place of برقع] and explain it as meaning the seventh heaven.
