حجز حجف حجل
حاجفهُ He opposed him and repelled him, [app. with a حَجَفَة, (see the act. part. n., below,)] being opposed and repelled by him. (Ṣ.)
حَجَفٌ: see what next follows, in two places.
حَجَفَةٌ A shield made of skins, (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA,) or, as some say, of the skins of camels, cut out in a round form, (TA,) without wood and without sinews; (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA;) as also دَرَقَةٌ: (Ṣ:) or of skins sewed one over another; as also دَرَقَةٌ: (ISd:) or a small shield made of two [pieces of] skins sewed together, one over the other: (Mṣb:) pl. حَجَفٌ↓, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) [or rather this is a coll. gen. n.,] and [the pl. is] حَجَفَاتٌ. (Mṣb.) The saying of the rájiz, (Ṣ,) namely, Su-r-edhDhi-b, (TA,)
* بَلْ جَوْزِتَيْهَآءَ كَظَهْرِ الحَجَفَتْ *
means رُبَّ جَوْزِ تَيْهَآءَ [i. e. Many a middle of a desert in which one loses his way, like the back of a shield such as is called حجفة]: and [by احجفت is meant الحجفه; for] some of the Arabs, in pausing upon a ة, make it ت: thus they say, هٰذَا طَلْحَتْ, and خُبْزُ الذٌّرَتْ: (Ṣ, Ṣgh:) these are Teiyi. (Ṣgh, TA.)
‡ The breast, or chest; (Abu-l-ʼOmeythil, Ḳ:) as being likened to a shield: (Abu-l-ʼOmeythil, TA:) pl. [or coll. gen. n.] حَجَفٌ↓. (Abu-l-ʼOmeythil, Ḳ.)
مُحَاجِفٌ Fighting with another, having a حَجَفَة: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) opposing reciprocally. (Ḳ.)
