(TA.) ― -b4- He remained, stayed, abode, or dwelt, (K, TA,) بِمَكَانٍ in a place; not quitting it; as also ↓ تَحَجْحَجَ . (TA.) R. Q. 2 تَحَجْحَجَ تحجحج : see what next precedes. حَجُّ حج and ↓ حِجٌّ , the former an inf. n., and the latter a simple subst., (S, Msb, K,) or the latter also is an inf. n., (Sb, L,) [both used as substs.,] The pilgrimage to Mekkeh, (S, K,) or to the Kaabeh, (Msb,) to perform the religious rites and ceremonies prescribed to be observed on that occasion: (S, Msb, K:) Ks makes no difference between these two words: some say that the former is employed to signify the religious rites and ceremonies of the pilgrimage because they follow the repairing to Mekkeh, or because they are completed by shaving [the head], or because people continue long going to and fro to perform them: accord. to Az, it signifies the performance of the religious rites and ceremonies of the pilgrimage of one year; and some say ↓ حِجٌّ and ↓ حِجَّةٌ : (TA:) or this last signifies a single pilgrimage, for the performance of its appointed religious rites and ceremonies; deviating from rule; (S, Mgh, Msb, K;) for by rule it should be ↓ حَجَّةٌ , (S, Mgh, K,) which, Th says, has not been heard from the Arabs: (Mgh, Msb:) Ks says that ↓ حَجَجْتُ حِجَّةً and رَأَيْتُ رُؤْيَةً are the only deviations from the model of فَعَلْتُ فَعْلَةً in all the language of the Arabs: but El-Athram and others are related to have said, We have not heard from the Arabs حَجَجْتُ حِجَّةً nor رَأَيْتُ رِئْيَةً; they saying only ↓ حَجَجْتُ حَجَّةً : (L, TA:) whence it appears that ↓ حَجَّةٌ and ↓ حِجَّةٌ were both used: (TA:) the pl. of the latter is حِجَجٌ: (Mgh, Msb:) so in the saying, نَذَرَ خَمْسَ حِجَجٍ [He made a vow to perform five pilgrimages]. (Mgh.) Hence, ↓ ذُو الحِجَّةِ (S, Mgh, Msb) and ↓ ذو الحَجَّةِ , (Msb, TA,) which latter is said by Kz and 'Iyád and Ibn- Kurkool to be the more common, (TA,) [or, accord. to Fei, the contr. is the case, for he says,] some pronounce it in the latter manner, (Msb,) [The last month of the Arabian calendar;] the month of the pilgrimage; (S, Mgh, Msb;) so called because the pilgrimage to Mekkeh, and the religious rites and ceremonies thereof, are performed in it: (TA:) pl. ذَوَاتُ الحجّهِ: (S, Msb:) they did not say ذَوُو الحَجّةِ agreeably with the singular. (S.) [Hence also,] ↓ وَحَجَّةِ ا@للّٰهِ لَا أَفْعَلُ [By the pilgrimage which is the ordinance of God, I will not do this or that thing]: a form of oath used by the Arabs. (S, K.) What is commonly termed الحَجُّ is sometimes termed الحَجُّ الأَكْبَرُ [The greater pilgrimage]: العُمْرَةُ [q. v.] being termed الحَجَّ الأَصْغَرُ [the minor pilgrimage]. (Kull p. 168.) ― -b2- See also حَاجٌّ. حِجُّ حج : see حَجُّ, in two places: ― -b2- and see also حَاجٌّ. حَجَّةٌ حج حجه حجة : see حَجٌّ, in five places. -A2- Also, (IAar, K,) and ↓ حِجَّةٌ , (S, K,) the former of which is the word commonly known, (IAar in a marginal note in a copy of the S,) and ↓ حَاجَّةٌ , which is a subst. like كَاهِلٌ and غَارِبٌ, (L,) The lobe of the ear. (S, L, K.) ― -b2- And the first, The bore, or perforation, of the lobe of the ear. (AA, TA.) ― -b3- And A bead, or a pearl, that is hung in the ear; (K;) sometimes called ↓ حَاجَّةٌ . (IDrd, TA.) حُجَّةٌ حج حجه حجة A mode [of argument or the like] by which one overcomes in a litigation, dispute, or altercation; so called because recourse is had to it (لِأَنَّهَا تُحَجُّ, i. e. تُقْصَدُ): (T, TA:) that by which one rebuts, or refels, an adversary in a litigation, dispute, or altercation: an argument; a plea; an allegation: [it may be true or false: see Kur xlii. 15, and xlv. 24:] (TA:) a proof; an evidence; a testimony: (S, Msb, K:) [a title; a voucher: often thus used in the present day:] also applied to a person; like ثَبَتٌ; (A and Mgh and TA in art. ثبت;) [as in the saying, مَنْ حِفِظَ حُجَّةٌ عَلَى مَنْ لَمْ يَحْفَظْ He who preserves in his mind a word, or an authority, &c., is an evidence against him who does not; occurring often in the larger lexicons, expressing the superior authority of hearsay, or usage, over analogy &c.; and in the saying,] أَنْتَ حُجَّةٌ عَلَى نَفْسِكَ [Thou art an evidence against thyself]; a phrase mentioned by Akh: (S in art. بصر:) [also, an excuse:] pl. حُجَجٌ (A, Msb) and حِجَاجٌ. (TA.) حِجَّةٌ حج حجه حجة : see حَجٌّ, in four places. ― -b2- Also A year: (S, Msb, K:) pl. حِجَجٌ. (S, A, Msb.) You say, أَقَمْتُ عِنْدَهُ حِجَّةً [I stayed at his abode a year], and ثَلَاثَ حِجَجٍ كَوَامِلَ [three complete years]. (A.) -A2- See also حَجَّةٌ. حُجُجٌ حجج حجة : see حَجِيجٌ, in two places: ― -b2- and see also حَجَاجٌ. حَجَاجٌ حاج حجاج and ↓ حِجَاجٌ The surrounding bone of the eye, (Msb, TA,) upon [the upper part of] which grows the eyebrow; (TA;) the bone that surrounds the cavity of the eye, upon [the upper part of] which grows the hair of the eyebrow: (ISk, TA:) it is said in a trad. that a female hyena and her young ones were within the حجاج of the eye of an Amalekite: (TA:) or the [supra-orbital] bone upon which grows the hair of the eyebrow; (S, K;) the bone that projects over the cavity of the eye: (IAmb, Msb:) or the upper bone, beneath the eyebrow: (TA:) of the mase. gender: (Msb:) pl. [of pauc.] أَحِجَّةٌ (S, Msb) and [of mult.] ↓ حُجُجٌ , deviating from a general rule, accord. to which a sing. of the measure to which this belongs does not assume this form of pl. because the reduplication is disapproved: also, by poetic license, حَوَاجِجُ, contr. to rule, for حَوَاجُّ. (TA.) The expression فِى حَجَا حَاجِبٍ ضَمْرٍ is used by poetic license for فى حَجَاجِ حاجب ضمر. (TA.) ― -b2- [Hence,] both words also signify (tropical:) The upper limb of the disk (i. q. حَاجِب) of the sun, appearing when it begins to rise. (A, K, TA: but in the A, only the latter form of the word is given.) ― -b3- Also, [hence,] both words, (tropical:) A side. (A, * K.) You say, مَرُّوا بِحِجَاجَىِ الجَبَلِ (tropical:) They passed by the two sides of the mountain. (A.) حِجَاجٌ حاج حجاج : see the paragraph next preceding. حَجِيجٌ حاج حجيج A man upon whom the operation termed حَجٌّ (the probing of a fracture of the head, &c.,) has been performed; (S, L;) as also ↓ مَحْجُوجٌ .

(As, TA.) ― -b3- ↓ حُجُجٌ (pl. of حَجِيجٌ, TA) signifies Probed wounds. (K.) ― -b4- And ↓ this same pl., Roads much furrowed [by the feet of beasts or men] (مُحَفَّرَةٌ): (L, K:) but it is uncertain whether its sing., if it have any, be حَجِيجٌ or حِجَاجٌ. (MF.) -A2- Also i. q.مُحَاجٌّ as act. part. n. of حَاجَّ: so in the phrase, أَنَا حَجِيجُهُ I am he who will overcome him by arguments, or proofs, or the like: occurring in a trad. relating to Ed-Dejjál. (TA.) -A3- See also حَاجٌّ. حَجَّاجٌ حاج حجاج A frequent performer of the pilgrimage to Mekkeh, and of the religious rites and ceremonies ordained for that occasion: the ا in this word, as in other epithets of the same measure, does not [regularly] admit of imáleh; but when it is used as a proper name, it admits this, agreeably with rule: some pronounce its ا with imáleh even when it is in the nom. or accus. case, contr. to rule. (TA.) حَاجٌّ حاج act. part. n. of 1; Repairing, or betaking himself, to [a person or place]. (Msb.) ― -b2- And hence, (S, Msb,) A man repairing to Mekkeh, (S, K,) or to the Kaabeh, (Msb,) to perform the religious rites and ceremonies of the pilgrimage; (S, Msb, K;) or for the purpose of the عُمْرَة: (Msb: [but see 1:]) [a pilgrim of Mekkeh; or one who has performed the pilgrimage of Mekkeh: see what follows:] as also ↓ حَاجِجٌ , (S, K,) the original form, sometimes used by poetic license: (S:) pl. حُجَّاجٌ and ↓ حَجِيجٌ (S, A, Msb, K) and حُجٌّ; (S, K;) or rather the second of these is a quasi-pl. n., a kind of noun which, as well as the coll. gen. n., is often called by the lexicographers a pl., though not so called by the grammarians: (MF:) حَاجٌّ is also used as a pl., syn. with حُجَّاجٌ, like as سَامِرٌ is with سُمَّارٌ: (Mgh:) it may be considered as a gen. n., and is sometimes a quasi-pl. n., like جَامِلٌ and بَاقِرٌ; (TA;) as is also ↓ حِجٌّ ; signifying a company of pilgrims of Mekkeh; or pilgrims, collectively; (ISk, L;) and likewise ↓ حَجٌّ . (So in a marginal note in a copy of the S.) The fem. is ↓ حَاجَّةٌ : pl. حَوَاجُّ: (S, K:) you say حَوَاجُّ بَيْتِ ا@للّٰهِ when they have performed the pilgrimage; but when they have not yet performed it, [being in the act of performing it,] you say حَوَاجُّ بَيْتَ ا@للّٰهِ, in which latter case you would say حَوَاجٌّ were not this word imperfectly decl.; [and in like manner, حَاجُّ بَيْتِ ا@للّٰهِ, and حَاجٌّ بَيْتَ ا@للّٰهِ;] like as you say ضَارِبُ زَيْدٍ أَمْسِ, and ضَارِبٌ زَيْدًا غَدًا. (S.) [↓ حَاجِّىٌّ , as a n. un. of حَاجٌّ, considering the latter as a coll. gen. n., like رُومٌ, of which the n. un. is رُومِىٌّ is commonly used by the Turks and Persians as signifying a pilgrim of Mekkeh: but I have not found it so used in any classical Arabic work.] You say, أَقْبَلَ الحَاجُّ وَالدَّاجُّ The company of pilgrims to Mekkeh, and of men travelling for mercantile purposes, came. (TA. [See also art. دج.]) And وَلَا دَاجَّةًلَمْ يَتْرُكْ He left not a company of pilgrims to Mekkeh (جَمَاعَةً حَاجَّةً), nor a company of their followers, or dependents. (TA from a trad. [See also arts. دج and دوج.]) -A2- Also Overcoming in [or by] an argument, or a plea, or the like.
