inf. n. of 1. (Ṣ, &c.) [Hence,] يَوْمُ الجَمْعِ The day of resurrection [when all mankind will be collected together]. (IDrd, Ḳ.)
Also, without the article ال, A name of El-Muzdelifeh [between 'Arafát and Minè]; (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ;) determinate, like عَرَفَاتُ: (TA:) so called because people collect themselves there; (Ṣ, Mṣb;) or because Adam there met with Eve (Mgh, Mṣb) after they had fallen [from Paradise]: (TA:) [or, app., a name of the tract from 'Arafát to Minè inclusive of these two places: and hence,] يَوْمُ جَمْعٍ the day of 'Arafeh [when the pilgrims halt at Mount 'Arafát]: and أَيَّامُ جَمْعٍ the days of Minè. (IDrd, Ḳ.)
As an inf. n. used as a subst., properly so termed, (Ṣ, * Mgh, Mṣb,) it also signifies A collection; a number together; an assembly; a company, troop, congregated or collective body, party, or group; a mass; syn.
↓جَمَاعَةٌ, (Ṣ, Mgh, L, Mṣb, Ḳ,) of men; (Ṣ, L, Ḳ;) as also
↓مَجْمَعٌ (L, Mṣb, TA) and
↓مَجْمِعٌ (Mṣb) and
↓مَجْمَعَةٌ (L, TA) and
↓جَمِيعٌ: (O, Ḳ:) but
↓جَمَاعَةٌ is also used as signifying a collection, a number together, or an assemblage, of other things than men; [of beasts, as camels, horses and the like, bulls and cows, and antelopes, gazelles, &c., i. e. a herd, troop, or drove; of dogs, i. e. a pack; of sheep and goats, i. e. a flock; of birds, i. e. a flock or bevy; of bees, and locusts, &c., i. e. a swarm;] and even of trees, and of plants; (L, TA;) it signifies a collection, or an assemblage, or aggregate, of any things, consisting of many and of few; (Mṣb;) [as also
↓مَجْمَعٌ;] a number, a plurality, and a multitude, of any things: (TA:) the pl. of جَمْعٌ is جُمُوعٌ. (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ.)
And particularly, An army; a military force; (TA;) as also
↓جَمِيعٌ. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) Whence the phrase, in a trad., لَهُ سَهْمٌ جَمْعٌ, [or, more probably, سَهْمُ جَمْعٍ,] meaning For him or shall be, the like of an army's share of the spoil. (TA.)
Also The plural of a thing [or word; i. e. a proper plural, according to the grammarians; and also applied by the lexicologists to a quasi-plural noun, which the grammarians distinguish by the terms اِسْمُ جَمْعٍ and جَمْعٌ لُغَوِىٌّ]; and so
↓جِمَاعٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) and
↓جَمِيعٌ, except that this last is what is termed اِسْمٌ لَازِمٌ [app. meaning a subst. which does not govern another as its complement in the gen. case like as جَمْعٌ and جِمَاعٌ do, being thus likened to what is termed فِعْلٌ لَازِمٌ, i. e. an intransitive verb; so that you say of الخِبَآءُ, for instance, الجَمِيعُ الأَخْبِيَةُ the plural is الاخبية; for in this manner I always find it used when it has this signification, which is frequently the case in several of the older lexicons, and in some others; not جَمِيعُ الخِبَآءِ الأَخْبِيَةُ]; (TA;) [whereas] you say, [جَمْعُ الخِبَآءِ الأَخْبِيَةُ and]
↓جِمَاعُ الخِبَآءِ الأَخْبِيَةُ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) i. e. the جَمْع [or plural] of الخباء is الخِبَآءِ; (Ḳ) for
↓الجِمَاعُ is what comprises a number [of things]. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) See also this last word below.
And see also the next paragraph, in three places.
The worst sort of dates; (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ;) because they are collected together and mixed, (Mgh, Mṣb,) from among the dates of fifty palm-trees: (Mgh:) and afterwards, by predominant usage, [any] bad dates: (Mgh, * Mṣb:) or a certain kind of dates (Ḳ, TA) mixed together, of several sorts, not in request, and not mixed but for their badness: (TA:) or it signifies, (Mgh, Ḳ,) or signifies also, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) palm-trees (Aṣ, Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ) of any kind, (Aṣ, Mgh, Mṣb,) growing from the date-stones, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) of which the name is unknown. (Aṣ, Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ.)
Red gum; (Ibn-ʼAbbád, Ḳ;) [app. because collected and mixed with gum of lighter colour.]
