n.
1 ear. – 2 handle (of a cup) – WehrCowan1979.
▪ From Sem *ʔuḏn‑ ‘ear’ (? < AfrAs *ʔudun-/*ʔuз̆un‑ ‘ear’).
v2 ‘handle (of a cup)’ is metaphorical use (the ‘ear’ of a cup).
▪ From ‘ear’ are also the vb.s ‘to hear’ (I) and ‘to announce, inform; to crow (rooster)’ (II, *‘to make o.s. heard’) as well as, with the advent of Islam, the ‘call for prayer’.
▪ Most probably, also the notion of ‘to allow, give permission’ is derived from here, cf. →ʔiḏn (and derivatives).
