THE DISPRAISE OF AL-HAWAA
Al-Hawaa is the inclination of the self to a thing. Its verb is Hawiyah (past tense), Yahwaa (present tense) and Hawan (infinitive). As to . Hawaa and they mean “fell down” and “falling down,” respectively, and the infinitive is Al-Huwiyyu with the movement at the end being a dhammah, a vowel point for u.
Al-Hawaa also refers to the beloved. A poet said: “Such and such [a man] is the Hawaa [the beloved] to such and such [a woman], and that she is his Hawaa [beloved].”

And in the story of the captives of the battle of Badr,’Umar lbn Al- Khattaab . said:
The Prophet The Prophet Hawiyah (liked) what Abu Bakr said (i.e. He was inclined to the position of Abu Bakr regarding the fate of the captives) and didn’t like what I said.” Then he concluded the hadeeth.
