1 رَقَبَهُ, (JK, S, Mgh, Msb, K,) aor. ـُ (S, A, Mgh, Msb,) inf. n. ↓ رقْبَةٌ, (JK, S, Mgh, K,) or this is a simple subst., (Msb,) and [the inf. n. is]

رِقْبَانٌ (JK, S, K) and رُقُوبٌ (S, K) and رَقُوبٌ and رَقْبَةٌ and رَقَابَةٌ, (K,) He looked, watched, or waited, for him, or it; he awaited, or expected, him, or it; (JK, S, A, Mgh, Msb, K;) namely, a man, (JK, A,) or a thing; (S;) as also ↓ ترقبهُ; (JK, * S, * A, Msb, K;) and ↓ ارتقبهُ; (S, * A, Msb, K;) and ↓ راقبهُ, (Mgh,) inf. n. مُرَاقَبَةٌ. (JK, S, A, Mgh, Msb.) You say, قَعَدَ يَرْقُبُ صَاحِبَهُ He sat looking, watching, or waiting, for his com-panion; as also ↓ يَرْتَقِبُهُ. (A.) And أَتَرَقَّبُ ↓ كَذَا I look, &c., or am looking, &c., for such a thing. (A.) And يَرْقُبُ مَوْتَ صَاحِبِهِ [He looks, &c., for the death of his companion], (JK, S, A, Mgh, Msb,) and أَبِيهِ لِيَرِثَهُ [of his father, in order that he may inherit his property]: (A:) and ↓ تُرَاقِبُ مَوْتَ بَعْلِهَا [She looks, &c., for the death of her husband], (K, TA,) لِيَمُوتَ فَتَرِثَهُ [that he may die and she may inherit his property]. (TA.) And لَمْ تَرْقُبْ قَوْلِى, in the Kur [xx. 95], means And thou didst not wait, or hast not waited, for my saying [or what I should say]. (JK, TA.) b2: And رَقَبَهُ, (Msb, K,) aor. as above, (TA,) inf. n. رُقُوبٌ, (Msb,) He guarded, kept, preserved, or took care of, it; was mindful, or regardful, of it; (Msb, K;) namely, a thing; (TA;) as also ↓ راقبهُ, inf. n. مُرَاقَبَةٌ and رِقَابٌ; (K;) [and ↓ ترقّبهُ.] You say also أَنَا أَرْقُبُ لَكُمُ اللَّيْلَةَ I will guard, or keep watch, for you to-night. (A.) b3: And He regarded it; paid regard, or consideration, to it. (Bd and Jel in ix. 8.) You say, مَا لَكَ لَا تَرْقُبُ ذِمَّةَ فُلَانٍ [What aileth thee that thou wilt not regard the inviolable right or due, &c., of such a one?]. (A. [This phrase is there mentioned as proper, not tropical.]) b4: And (tropical:) He feared him; (A;) and so ↓ راقبهُ; (S, A, Mgh;) namely, God; (S, Mgh;) فِى أَمْرِهِ [in his affair]; (S;) because he who fears looks for, or expects, punishment (يَرْقُبُ العِقَابَ): (A, Mgh:) or رَاقَبْتُ ↓ اللّٰهَ signifies (assumed tropical:) I feared the punishment of God. (Msb.) ↓ رِقْبَةٌ [as inf. n. of رَقَبَ app. used intransitively, or perhaps as a simple subst.,] signifies (assumed tropical:) The fearing, or being afraid [of a person or thing]: or fear: and also (assumed tropical:) the guarding oneself; being watchful, vigilant, or heedful: or self-guardance; &c. (K, TA. [See this word below.]) b5: And you say, بَاتَ يَرْقُبُ النُّجُومَ and ↓ يُرَاقِبُهَا, like يَرْعَاهَا and يُرَاعِيهَا (tropical:) [i. e. He passed the night watching the stars and waiting for the time when they would disappear]. (A, TA.) IAar cites the following saying of one describing a travelling-companion of his: يُرَاقِبُ ↓ النَّجْمَ رِقَابَ الحُوتِ meaning (tropical:) He watches (↓ يَرْتَقِبُ) the star, or asterism, with vehement desire for departure, like the [watching with] vehement desire of the fish for water. (TA.) [See also رَقِيبٌ.]

A2: رَقَبَ فُلَانًا He put the rope [or a rope] upon the رَقَبَة [i. e. neck, or base of the hinder part of the neck, &c.,] of such a one. (K.) A3: رَقِبَ, [aor. ـَ inf. n. رَقَبٌ, (TA,) or this is a simple subst., (K,) He was, or became, thick in the رَقَبَة [or neck, &c.]. (TA.) 2 رَقَّبُوا لِلنَّمِرِ [They made a رُقْبَة (q. v.) for the leopard]. (JK.) 3 راقب, inf. n. مُرَاقَبَةٌ and رِقَابٌ: see 1, in seven places.4 ارقبهُ الدَّارَ, (JK, S, A, Mgh, Msb, K,) inf. n. إِرْقَابٌ, (Msb,) He assigned the house to him as a ↓ رُقْبَى [q. v.], (JK, A, * Mgh, K, TA,) and to his offspring after him, in the manner of a وَقْف [so as to be unalienable]: (TA:) and ↓ ارقبهُ الرُّقْبَى

[he assigned to him the رُقْبَى]: (Lh, K:) or ارقبهُ دَارًا, or أَرْضًا, means he gave to him a house, or land, on the condition that it should be the property of the survivor of them two; saying, If I die before thee, it shall be thine; and if thou die before me, it shall be mine: (S:) it is from المُرَاقَبَةُ; because each of the two persons looks for (يَرْقُبُ) the death of the other; (S, Mgh, Msb;) in order that the property may be his: (Msb:) the subst. is ↓ رُقْبَى [signifying, as a quasi-inf. n., the act explained above; and, as a subst. properly so termed, the thing given in the manner explained above: the verb being similar to أَعْمَرَ; and the subst., in both of its applications, to عُمْرَى: see these two words]. (S, Msb.) 5 تَرَقَّبَ see 1, in three places.8 إِرْتَقَبَ see 1, in three places. b2: You say also, ارتقب المَكَانَ He ascended upon the place. (K, * TA.) رَقَبٌ Thickness of the رَقَبَة [or neck, &c.]: (S, K:) a subst. [as distinguished from an inf. n.: but see 1, last signification]. (K.) A2: See also رَقَبَةٌ.

رُقْبَةٌ [A pit made for the purpose of catching the leopard]: it is, for the نَمِر, like the زُبْيَة for the lion. (JK, K.) رِقْبَةٌ: see 1, first sentence: b2: and again, in the latter half of the paragraph. [Hence,] وَرِثَ فُلَانٌ مَالًا عَنْ رِقْبَةٍ (tropical:) Such a one inherited property from distant relations; not from his fathers. (K, TA.) And وَرِثَ المَجْدَ عَنْ رِقْبَةٍ (tropical:) He inherited glory, or nobility, from distant relations: [it is said of a man] because it is feared that it will not be conceded to him on account of the obscurity of his lineage. (A.) El-Kumeyt says, كَانَ السَّدَى وَالنَّدَى مَجْدًا وَمَكْرُمَةً

تِلْكَ المَكَارِمُ لَمْ يُورَثْنَ عِنْ رِقَبِ (tropical:) [The night-dew and the day-dew that nourished his mental growth were nobility and generous disposition: those generous qualities were not inherited from distant relations: رِقَبٌ being pl. of رِقْبَةٌ]: i. e., he inherited them from near ancestors. (TA.) رَقَبَةٌ The neck: or the base of the hinder part thereof: (A, K:) or the hinder part of the base of the neck: (JK, S:) or the upper part of the neck: (TA:) pl. [of mult.] رِقَابٌ (JK, S, Msb, K) and [coll. gen. n.] ↓ رَقَبٌ (JK, S, K) and [pl. of pauc.] أَرْقُبٌ (IAar, K) and رَقَبَاتٌ. (S, Msb, K.) b2: By a synecdoche, it is applied to (tropical:) The whole person of a human being: as in the saying, ذَنْبُهُ فِى رَقَبَتِهِ (tropical:) [His sin, or crime, &c., be on his own neck; meaning, on himself]. (IAth, TA.) [Hence also] one says, هٰذَا الأَمْرُ فِى رِقَابِكُمْ (tropical:) [This affair is upon your own selves], and فِى رَقَبَتِكَ (tropical:) [upon thine own self]. (A.) And أَعْتَقَ اللّٰهُ رَقَبَتَهُ (tropical:) [May God emancipate him]. (A.) And لَكَ رِقَابُهُنَّ وَمَا عَلَيْهِنَّ, in a trad., relating to camels, (tropical:) They themselves, and the burdens that are upon them, are thine. (TA.) And [hence], in another trad., لَنَا رِقَابُ الأَرْضِ (tropical:) To us belongs the land itself. (TA.) b3: Hence also, i. e. by a synecdoche, (IAth, Mgh, TA,) (tropical:) A slave, (S, IAth, Mgh, K, TA,) male and female: (IAth, TA:) and a captive: (TA:) pl. رِقَابٌ. (Mgh.) Yousay, أَعْتَقَ رَقَبَةً (tropical:) He emancipated a slave, male or female. (IAth, TA.) And فَكَّ رَقَبَةً (tropical:) He released a slave, or a captive. (TA.) الرِّقَاب in the Kur ix. 60 means (tropical:) Those slaves who have contracted with their owners for their freedom. (T, Mgh, Msb, TA.) b4: رِقَابُ المَزَاوِدِ (tropical:) [lit. The necks of provision-bags] is a nickname which was applied to the عَجَم [or Persians, or foreigners in general]; because they were red; (S, A;) or because of the length of their necks; (El-Karáfee, TA in art. زود;) or rather because of the thickness thereof, as though they were full. (MF in that art.) رُقْبَى One's giving to another person a possession, (K,) such as a house, and land, and the like, (TA,) on the condition that, whichever of them shall die, the property shall revert to his [the giver's] heirs: (K:) so called because each of them looks for (يَرْقُبُ) the death of the other: (TA:) or one's assigning it, (K,) namely, a dwelling, (TA,) to another person to inhabit, and, when he shall die, to another: (K:) or one's saying to a man, If thou die before me, my dwelling [or my land, which I give to thee,] shall revert to me; and if I die before thee, it shall be thine: so called for the reason above mentioned. (JK, KT. *) [It also signifies The property so given.] See 4, in three places. The act thus termed is forbidden in a trad., which pronounces that the property so given belongs to the giver's heirs. (JK.) Accord. to the Imám Aboo-Haneefeh, and [the Imám] Mohammad, it is not a هِبَة: accord. to Aboo-Yoosuf, it is a هِبَة like the عُمْرَى; but none of the lawyers of El-'Irák says so: the Málikees absolutely forbid it. (TA.) You say, دَارِى لَكَ رُقْبَى [My house is thine as a رقبى]: from المُرَاقَبَةُ; because each of the two persons looks for the death of the other. (A.) رَقَبَانٌ: see أَرْقَبُ.

رَقَبَانِىٌّ: see أَرْقَبُ.

رَقُوبٌ (tropical:) A woman (S, A) of whom no offspring lives, or remains, (S, A, K,) and who looks for the death of her offspring, or of her husband [app. that she may have offspring by another]: (A:) and in like manner applied to a man: (S:) because he, or she, looks for the death of the child, in fear for it: (IAth, TA:) in like manner also a she-camel of which no offspring lives: (TA:) or he who has no offspring: (Msb:) or he who has not sent before him [to Paradise, by its dying in infancy,] any of his children: this, says A'Obeyd, is the meaning in the [classical] language of the Arabs; relating only to the loss of children: (TA:) he who has had no child die in infancy: or he who has had children and has died without sending before him any of them [to Paradise, by its dying in infancy]. (So in the explanations of two trads., each commencing with الرَّقُوبُ, in the “ Jámi' es-Sagheer ” of EsSuyootee.) وَرِثْتُهُ عَنْ عَمَّةٍ رَقُوبِ is a prov., expl. by Meyd as meaning [I inherited it from a paternal aunt] of whom no offspring was living: such, he says, is most compassionate to the son of her brother. (TA.) b2: Also A woman who looks for the death of her husband, (S, K,) in order that she may inherit his property. (S.) b3: And (assumed tropical:) An old and a poor man who is unable to earn for himself, and has none to earn for him: so called because he looks for a benefaction or gratuity. (Msb.) b4: And (assumed tropical:) A she-camel that does not draw near to the wateringtrough, or tank, on account of the pressing, or crowding [of the other camels to it], (S, K,) by reason of her generous disposition: (S:) so called because she waits for the others to drink, and drinks when they have done. (TA.) b5: أُمُّ الرَّقُوبِ (assumed tropical:) Calamity, or misfortune. (K.) رَقِيبٌ, of the measure فَعِيلٌ in the sense of the measure فَاعِلٌ, (TA,) A looker, watcher, or waiter, in expectation [of a person or thing]: (S, Msb, K:) pl. رُقَبَآءُ. (Msb.) b2: A guarder, guardian, keeper, or preserver: (JK, S, A, Msb, K:) a guard of a people; one stationed on an elevated place to keep watch: (TA:) a spy, or scout, of an army: (A, TA:) a watcher, or an observer. (TA.) b3: [Hence,] الرّقِيبُ is an appel-lation applied to God; (A, K, TA;) meaning The Guardian, Keeper, Watcher, or Observer, from whom nothing is hidden. (TA.) b4: Also The أَمِين of the players at the game called المَيْسِر; (JK, K;) or (K) he who is intrusted with the supervision of the ضَرِيب [or shuffler of the arrows]: (JK, S, K:) or the man who stands behind the حُرْضَة [q. v.] in the game above mentioned: the meanings of all these explanations are [said to be] the same: pl. as above. (TA.) b5: And (assumed tropical:) The third of the arrows used in the game above mentioned: (T, S, K:) it is one of the seven arrows to which lots, or portions, appertain: (TA:) by some it is called الضَّرِيبُ: (Lh, L in art. ضرب:) the arrows are ten in number: the first is الفَذُّ, which has one notch and one portion; the second, التَّوْءَمُ, which has two notches and two portions; the third, الرَّقِيبُ, which has three notches and three portions; the fourth, الحِلْسُ or الحَلِسُ, which has four notches [and four portions]; the fifth, النَّافِسُ, which has five notches [and five portions]; the sixth, المُسْبِلُ, which has six notches [and six portions]; and the seventh, المُعَلَّى, the highest of all, which has seven notches and seven portions: those to which no portions appertain are السَّفِيحُ and المَنِيحُ and الوَغْدُ. (TA.) A poet says, إِذَا قَسَمَ الهَوَى أَعْشَارَ قَلْبِى

فَسَهْمَاكِ المُعَلَّى وَالرَّقِيبُ [When love divides the tenths of my heart, thy two arrows will be the mo'allà and the rakeeb]: by the سَهْمَانِ, [which properly signifies two arrows, and hence (assumed tropical:) two portions gained by two gaming-arrows, and then (assumed tropical:) any two portions,] he means her eyes: and as the معلّى has seven portions and the رقيب has three, the سهمان would gain the whole of his heart. (TA. [See also a verse cited voce عُشْرٌ.]) b6: رَقِيبُ النَّجْمِ signifies (tropical:) The star, or asterism, that sets with the rising of that [other] star, or asterism: for example, the رقيب of الثُّرَيَّا is الإِكْلِيلُ: [and the former is the رقيب of the latter:] when the latter rises at nightfall, the former sets: (S, TA:) or رَقِيبٌ signifies the star, or asterism, which [as it were] watches, (يُرَاقِبُ,) in the east, the star, or asterism, setting in the west: or any one of the Mansions of the Moon is the رقيب of another: (K, TA:) whenever any one of them rises, another [of them] sets: (TA: [see مَنَازِلُ القَمَرِ, in art. نزل; and see also نَوْءٌ:]) and الرَّقِيبُ is (assumed tropical:) a [certain] star, or asterism, of the stars, or asterisms, [that were believed to be the givers] of rain, that [as it were] watches another star, or asterism: (K:) [it was app. applied to الإِكْلِيلُ, as being the رقيب of the most noted and most welcome of all the Mansions of the Moon, namely, الثُّرَيَّا: see نَوْءٌ.] The رَقِيب of الثُّرَيَّا is [also] an appellation applied to الدَّبَرَانُ (assumed tropical:) [i. e. The Hyades; or the five chief stars of the Hyades; or the brightest star among them, α of Taurus]; because a follower thereof: (A:) [and] العَيُّوقُ (assumed tropical:) [i. e. Capella] is so called as being likened to the رقيب of the game called المَيْسِر. (TA.) [Hence,] one says, لَاآتِيكَ أَوْ يَلْقَى الثُّرَيَّا رَقِيبُهَا (tropical:) [I will not come to thee unless their رقيب meet the Pleiades]. (A.) b7: رَقِيبٌ also signifies (tropical:) A man's successor, (A, K,) of his offspring, and of his عَشِيرَة [i. e. kinsfolk, or nearer or nearest relations by descent from the same ancestor, &c.]. (K.) So in the saying, نِعْمَ الرَّقِيبُ أَنْتَ لِأَبِيكَ وَسَلَفِكَ (tropical:) [Excellent, or most excellent, is the successor; such art thou to thy father and thine ancestors]: because the successor is like الدَّبَرَان to الثُّرَيَّا. (A.) b8: and (assumed tropical:) The son of a paternal uncle. (K.) [App. because two male cousins by the father's side are often rivals, and watchers of each other; the son of a girl's paternal uncle being commonly preferred as her husband.] b9: Also (assumed tropical:) A species of serpent: as though it watched by reason of hatred: (TA:) or a certain malignant serpent: pl. رَقِيبَاتٌ and رُقُبٌ. (T, K.) رَقَّابَةٌ A low, or an ignoble, man, a servant, or a slave, syn. رَجُلٌ وَغْدٌ, (S, K,) who keeps, guards, or watches, the [utensils and furniture called]

رَحْل of a people when they are absent. (S.) أَرْقَبُ and ↓ رَقَبَانِىٌّ, (JK, S, A, K,) the latter irregular (Sb, S, K) as a rel. n., (Sb,) and ↓ رَقَبَانٌ, (IDrd, K,) applied to a man, (S, IDrd, A,) Thick, (JK, S, K,) or large, (A, Mgh, in which latter only the second epithet is mentioned,) in the رَقَبَة [or neck, &c.]: (JK, S, A, K:) the fem. [of the first] is رَقْبَآءُ, (JK, IDrd,) applied to a female slave, (JK,) not applied to a free woman, nor does one say رَقَبَانِيَّةٌ. (IDrd.) b2: الأَرْقَبُ is also [an epithet] applied to The lion; (K;) because of the thickness of his رَقَبة. (TA.) مَرْقَبٌ and ↓ مَرْقَبَةٌ An elevated place upon which a spy, or watchman, ascends, or stations himself: (S, A, * Msb, K: *) [a structure such as is termed] an عَلَم, or a hill, upon which one ascends to look from afar: or, accord. to Sh, the latter signifies a place of observation on the top of a mountain or of a fortress: accord. to AA, the pl., مَرَاقِبُ, signifies elevated pieces of ground. (TA.) مَرْقَبَةٌ: see what next precedes.

مُرَقَّبٌ A skin, or hide, that is drawn off from the part next to the head (S, K) and the رَقَبَة [or neck, &c.]. (S.)
