أُذْنٌ: see أُذُنٌ.

(TA.) You say also, فَعَلْتُ كَذَا بِإِذْنِهِ meaning I did thus by his command. (T.)


أَذَنٌ: see أَذَنَةٌ

(Ṣ.) You say, جَآءَ نَاشِرَّا أُذُنَيْهِ [He came spreading, or, as we say, pricking up, his ears: meaning]he came in a state of covetousness, or eagerness. (T, Ḳ, TA. [See also نَشَرَ.]) And وَجَدْتُ فُلَانًا لَا بِسًا أُذُنَيْهِI found such a one feigning himself inattentive, or heedless. (T, TA.)

(M.) It is said in the Ḳur [ix. 61], وَيَقُولُونَ هُوَ أُذُنٌ قُلْ أُذُنُ خَيْرٍ لَكُمْ (T, M) And they say, “He is one who hears and believes everything that is said to him:” as though, by reason of the excess of his listening, he were altogether the organ of hearing; like as a spy is termed عَيْنٌ; or أُذُن is here from أَذِنَ “he listened,” and is like أُنُفٌ and شُلُلٌ in its derivation: (Bḍ:) for among the hypocrites was he who found fault with the Prophet, saying, “If anything be told him from me, I swear to him, and he receives it from me, because he is an أُذُن:” (M:) therefore he is commanded to answer, Say, “A hearer of good for you.” (T, M, Bḍ.)
