[Hence,] حَجَمَهُ, aor. حَجُمَ, inf. n. حَجْمٌ, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb,) He scarified him [and drew blood from him with the مِحْجَمَة; i. e. he cupped him]; (Mṣb;) he performed upon him the operation of the حَجَّام, (Mgh,) or, of the حَاجِم, (Ṣ,) who sucks the mouth of the مِحْجَمَة [to draw the blood]. (Az, TA.)

Lḥ says that حَجْمُ العَظْمِ means One's perceiving the feel of the bones [or bone] behind the skin: thus explaining it after the manner of explaining inf. ns.: and ISd says, I known not whether it be in his opinion an inf. n. or a simple subst. (TA.) And Lth says that الحَجْمُ means One's perceiving the feel of a thing beneath a garment: [and that] one says, مَسَسْتُ بَطْنَ الحُبْلَى فَوَجَدْتُ حَجْمَ الصَّبِىِّ فِى بَطْنِهَا [which plainly means, I felt the belly of the pregnant woman, and perceived the bulging of the child in her belly]. (Mgh, TA.) It is said [of a woman's garment] in a trad., لَا يَصِفُ حَجْمَ عِظَامِهَا [lit.

↓حَاجِمٌ; (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ;) but the former is an intensive epithet [denoting frequency or habit]: (Mṣb:) so called because he sucks the mouth of the مِحْجَمَة. (Az, TA.) Hence the prov. أَفْرَغُ مِنْ حَجَّامِ سَابَاطَ [More unoccupied than the cupper of Sábát (the name of a place)]: for military forces used to pass by the man to whom it relates, and he used to cup them on credit, in consequence of want of employment, waiting for payment until they should return.
