Hadith #1

حدثنا الحسن بن إبراهيم بن أحمد بن المؤدب - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا أحمد بن يحيى، عن بكر بن عبد الله، عن نصر بن عبيد [الله]، عن نصر بن مزاحم قال: حدثني عبد الغفار بن القاسم، عن الأعمش، عن عدي بن ثابت، عن البراء بن عازب، قال: أقبل أبو سفيان - ومعاوية يتبعه - فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: اللهم العن التابع والمتبوع اللهم عليك بالأقيعس. قال ابن البراء لأبيه: من الأقيعس قال: معاوية.

1. We were told by Hasan bin Ibrahim bin Ahmad bin Mu’addab, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Ahmad bin Yahya, from Bikr bin Abdullah, from Nasr bin Ubaidullah, from Nasr bin Muzahim, that he said: I was told by Abdul-Ghafffar bin Qasem, from al-A’mash, from ‘Uday bin Thabit, from Baraa’ bin ‘Azib, that he said: Abu Sufyan approached, while Mu’awiya was following him, and the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: «O Allah, curse the following and the followed. O Allah, it is upon You to ruin the belittled lordotic.» Ibn Baraa’ said to his father: Who is the belittled lordotic? He said: Mu’awiya.



Hadith #2

قال مصنف هذا الكتاب: الأقيعس تصغير الأقعس وهو الملتوي العنق والقعاس التواء يأخذ في العنق من ريح كأنما يكسره إلى ما وراءه، والأقعس العزيز الممتنع، ويقال: " عز أقعس " والقوعس الغليظ العنق، الشديد الظهر من كل شئ والقعوس الشيخ الكبير والقعس نقيض الحدب، والفعل: قعس يقعس قعسا والجمع قعساوات وقعس. والقعساء من النمل الرافعة صدرها وذنبها والاقعنساس شدة والتقاعس هو من " تقاعس فلان " إذا لم ينفذ ولم يمض لما كلف، ومقاعس حي من تميم.

Swayback is a curvature that the neck, as if it breaks it until what is behind it. A lordotic is a noble who refrains (from action). It is also said: «A noble lordotic».
