” (T, S, M, TA,) i. e. I cut [in effect, while I did not really cut] you: for like one who cuts is a brother who has determined and prepared to go away. (TA.) [Hence,] لَا عَبَابَ وَ لَا أَبَابَ, [or لا عَبَابِ ولا أَبَابِ,] a prov. [which see explained in art. عب]. (TA.) [And hence the saying,] هُوَ فِى أَبَابِهِ, (S, M, K,) and أَبَابَتِهِ, and إِِبَابَتِهِ, (M,) He is in his [state of, or he is engaged in his,] preparation or equipment [for departing or journeying].

You say, فُلَانٌ رَاعَ لَهُ الحَبُّ وَطَاعَ لَهُ الأَبُّ, meaning Such a one's seed-produce [or grain] increased, and his pasture became ample. (A.) -A2- Also a dial. var. of أَبٌ, A father.
