سمت

1 سَمْتٌ [as an inf. n.] is syn. with قَصْدٌ [in an intrans. sense], (S, * Msb,) and هُدًى [in the sense of رَشَادٌ], and اِسْتِقَامَةٌ: (Msb:) or حُسْنُ نَحْوٍ: (M, K:) you say, سَمَتَ, aor. سَمُتَ, (S, M, K,) and سَمِتَ, (K,) or in this case the former only, (TA,) inf. n. سَمْتٌ, (M, TA,) He pursued a right course; syn. قَصَدَ: (S, TA:) or (assumed tropical:) he followed a good direction (M, K, * TA *) in the way of religion [&c.]. (TA.) Accord. to Khálid Ibn-Dabbeh, it signifies (assumed tropical:) The following the truth and the right way or direction, and being a good neighbour, and doing little harm. (TA.) [But more commonly, or primarily, it relates to the course that one pursues in journeying.] An Arab of the desert, of [the tribe of] Keys, says, سَوْفَ تَجُوبِينَ بِغَيْرِ نَعْتِ تَعَسُّفًا أَوْ هٰكَذَا بِالسَّمْتِ i. e. [Thou shalt traverse (addressing a woman), or, more probably, ye shall traverse (addressing camels or other beasts), a land without a description], journeying without any sign of the way and without any track [for guidance], such being the meaning of تعسّفا, or thus, pursuing a right course, السَّمْتُ meaning القَصْدُ. (TA.) Accord. to Sh, السَّمْتُ signifies The seeking, searching, or inquiring, for, or after, the right way or direction. (TA.) b2: السَّمْتُ also signifies قَصدُ الطَّرِيقِ [i. e. سَمْتُ الطَّرِيقِ signifies The road's having a right, or direct, tendency]: (M:) or [سَمْتُ الشَّىْءِ] signifies قَصْدُ الشَّىْءِ [i. e. The thing's having a right, or direct, tendency]. (K.) [This last explanation has been misunderstood by the Turkish translator of the K; who has hence been led to assert that one says, سَمَتَ الشَّىْءَ as well as سَمَتَ نَحْوَهُ, meaning قَصَدَهُ: it is تَسَمَّتَهُ that (like سَمَتَ نَحْوَهُ) signifies قَصَدَهُ; not سَمَتَهُ, for سَمَتَ is always intrans.] b3: Also The journeying (S, M, K) upon the road (M, K) [guided only] by opinion (S, M, K) and conjecture: (S:) or, as some say, the journeying by conjecture and opinion, not upon a [known] road. (TA.) A poet says, ↓ لَيْسَ بِهَا رِيعٌ لِسَمْتِ السَّامِتِ [There is not, or was not, in it, a road of any kind (see رِيعٌ) for the journeying by opinion and conjecture of him who so journeys]. (S, TA.) b4: And The pursuing a course, or direction, [of any kind,] and [particularly] (assumed tropical:) in religion and in worldly affairs. (TA.) You say, هُوَ يَسْمُتُ سَمْتَهُ (assumed tropical:) He pursues his [another's] way, or course, doing as he [the latter] does. (TA.) [سَمْتَهُ is here an absolute (not an objective) complement of يَسْمُتُ; like سَيْرَهُ in the phrase هُوَيَسِيرُ سَيْرَهُ. See also سَمْتٌ below.] b5: Also سَمَتَ, aor. سَمُتَ, inf. n. سَمْتٌ, (assumed tropical:) He (a man) was, or became, grave, staid, steady, sedate, or calm. (Msb.) b6: And سَمَتَ لَهُمْ, aor. سَمِتَ, (Fr, K,) inf. n. سَمْتٌ, (Fr, TA,) (assumed tropical:) He prepared, arranged, or disposed, for them, the mode, or manner, of speech, and of judging, or forming an opinion, (Fr, K, TA,) and of work, or action. (Fr, TA.) 2 تَسْمِيتٌ The keeping to the سَمْت [i. e. road, &c.]. (K.) It is said in a trad., فَانْطَلَقْتُ لَا أَدْرِى

أَيْنَ أَذْهَبُ إِلَّا أَنَّنِى أُسَمِّتُ, meaning [And I departed, not knowing whither I should go, but] I kept to the course, or direction, of the road: or as some say, I prayed to God. (TA.) b2: Also (assumed tropical:) The mentioning of God, (S, M, A, Msb, K,) or, as in some copies of the S, the mentioning of the name of God, [like تَسْمِيَةٌ, inf. n. of سَمَّى,] (TA,) upon, or over, a thing, (S, M, A, Msb, K,) or in any case. (TA.) One says, سَمَّتَ عَلَى

الطَّعَامِ (assumed tropical:) He mentioned the name of God upon, or over, the food. (TK.) b3: And سمّت لَهُ and عَلَيْهِ, inf. n. تَسْمِيتٌ, (assumed tropical:) He prayed for what was good for him; prayed for a blessing upon him; as also شمّت. (L and TA in art. شمت, q. v.) In a trad. respecting eating, it is said, سَمُّوا اللّٰهَ وَدَنُّوا وَسَمِّتُوا, meaning (assumed tropical:) [Pronounce ye the name of God, and take what is next you of the food, or make your words to be near together, (see 2 in arts. دنو and سمو,) and,] when ye have ended, invoke a blessing upon him at whose abode or table ye have eaten. (TA.) b4: التَّسْنِيتُ also signifies, (M, K,) or تَسْمِيتُ العَاطِسِ, (S, Msb,) (assumed tropical:) The praying for the sneezer; (M, Msb, K;) saying, هَدَاكَ اللّٰهُ إِلَى السَّمْتِ [May God guide thee to the right, or good, course]; because the person sneezing is disturbed and disquieted: so says AAF: (M, TA:) or the saying to him, يَرْحَمُكَ اللّٰهُ [May God have mercy on thee]: (Th, S, M:) or التَّسْمِيتُ signifies the saying بَارَكَ اللّٰهُ فِيكَ [May God bless thee]: (ISh, TA:) it is with س and with ش: (S, M, Msb:) one says سَمَّتَهُ, (T, M, Msb,) i. e. سَمَّتَ العَاطِسَ, meaning He prayed for the sneezer, [saying as above,] (A,) and شَمَّتَهُ: (T, M, Msb:) Th says that the former is preferred, (S,) or is the original, (Msb,) being from السَّمْتُ signifying القَصْدُ, (S, M, Msb,) and الهُدَى, and الاِسْتِقَامَةُ, (Msb,) and المَحَجَّةُ, (S,) or الطَّرِيقُ; (M;) as though one made a person his object by this prayer; (M;) and that the س is changed [by some] into ش: (TA:) but A 'Obeyd says that the pronunciation with ش is of higher authority, and more common. (S, Msb.) The Prophet said, When any of you sneezes, let him say, الحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ [Praise be to God]; and he who prays for him (الَّذِى يُشَنِّتُهُ [or يُسَمِّتُهُ]), يَرْحَمُكَ اللّٰهُ; and let him [i. e. the sneezer] say [in reply], يَهْدِيكُمُ اللّٰهُ وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَكُمْ [May God direct you aright, and render good your state, or condition, or case]. (Har p. 250.) 3 سامتهُ, inf. n. مُسَامَتَةٌ, He, or it, faced, or fronted, or was opposite to or over against, him, or it. (Msb, TA.) 5 تسمّتهُ, (As, S, A, TA,) [and] تسمّت لَهُ, (M,) He directed himself, or his course, or aim, to, or towards, him, or it; syn. قَصَدَهُ, (S, M,) or تَعَمَّدَهُ, and قَصَدَ نَحْوَهُ. (As, A, TA.) سَمْتٌ inf. n. of 1 [q. v.]. (M, TA.) b2: Also A road, or way; syn. طَرِيقٌ, (S, M, A, Mgh, Msb, K,) and مَحَجَّةٌ, (Th, S,) and نَحْوٌ: (A:) [pl. سُمُوتٌ.] One says, اِلْزَمْ هٰذَا السَّمْتَ Keep thou to this road, or way. (TA.) b3: And [hence,] (assumed tropical:) The way, or course, that one pursues in his religion and his worldly affairs: (TA:) (assumed tropical:) a way, mode, or manner, of acting or conduct or the like: (S, TA:) (tropical:) the mode, or manner, [of life,] syn. هَيْئَة, (S, A, Mgh, Msb, K, TA,) of good people, (S, A, Mgh, K, TA,) in respect of religion, not in respect of goodliness of person: (TA:) a metaphorical meaning, from the same word as signifying “ a road,” or “ way. ” (Mgh.) One says, إِنَّهُ لَحَسَنُ السَّمْتِ (assumed tropical:) Verily he is good in respect of the way, or course, that he pursues in his religion and his worldly affairs: (TA:) or هُوَحَسَنُ السَّمْتِ means (assumed tropical:) he is good in his هَيْئَة [i. e., as here used, mode, or manner, of life]. (Msb.) and مَا أَحْسَنَ سَمْتَهُ (tropical:) How good is his way, mode, or manner, of acting or conduct or the like! (S, A, * Mgh, * TA.) b4: [Hence,] (assumed tropical:) Gravity, staidness, steadiness, sedateness, or calmness. (Msb.) b5: السَّمْتُ also signifies The region, or quarter, to which, or towards which, the course, or aim, is directed. (M.) b6: [And hence, The bearing, or direction, of an object by the compass. And more particularly, The azimuth. b7: And سَمْتُ الرَّأْسِ The zenith; or vertical point in the heavens. (“ Zenit ” appears to have been, as Golius observes, a mistranscription for “ zemt,” or “ semt. ”) b8: سَمْتُ الشَّمْسِ The path of the sun; the ecliptic: from سَمْتٌ signifying “ a road,” or “ way. ” b9: سَمْتُ الاِعْتِدَالِ The equinoctial colure. And سَمْتُ الاِنْقِلَابِ The solstitial colure.]

سَامِتٌ [part. n. of 1]: see an ex. in the latter half of the first paragraph of this art. مُسَمِّتٌ (assumed tropical:) Any one praying, or who prays, for what is good, (S and TA in art. شمت,) لِأَحَدٍ

[for any one]; (TA in that art.;) as also مُشَمِّتٌ: (S and TA in that art.:) any one praying, or who prays, for a return to the right, or good, way, and continuance therein. (Msb.) مُتَسَمَّتُ النَّعْلِ The part of the sandal that is below its مُخَصَّر [or narrow part, more commonly called its خَصْر, extending thence] to its extremity. (K.)
