(T, TA.) You say, أَنَا أَحْجُو بِهِ خَيْرًا I think, or opine, that there is good in him. (Ṣ, TA.) And Aboo-Shembel says, respecting Aboo-ʼAmr Esh-Sheybánee,
* قَدْ كُنْتُ أَحْجُو أَبَا عَمْرٍوأَخَاثِقَةٍ ** حَتَّى أَلَمَّتْ بِنَا يَوْمًا مُلِمَّاتُ *
[I used to think and assert Aboo-ʼAmr to be a trustworthy person, until, one day, misfortunes befell us]. (TA.)
حَجَا القَوْمَ كَذَا وَكَذَا (Ṣ, Ḳ *) He repaid, requited, compensated, or recompensed, the people, or party, [with, or for, such and such things,] syn. جَزَاهُمْ; [so in my copies of the Ṣ, and in the Ḳ; but Freytag gives, as the reading found by him in the Ṣ, حزاهم, as though meaning he computed them by conjecture to be such and such in number; which is agreeable with what follows;] and he thought them to be so. (Ṣ.)
He directed himself, or his course or aim, to, or towards, him, or it: (Az, TA:) andتحجّى↓ الشَّىْءَ he directed himself, or his course or aim, to, or towards, the thing. (Ṣ, TA.)
Also, (Ḳ,) inf. n. as above, (TA,) He kept a secret: (Ḳ:) or he concealed it: (AZ, TA:) [andحَاجِى↓ has a similar meaning; for] you say, لَامُحَاجَاةَ عِنْدِى فِى كَذَا, i. e. There is no concealment with me in respect of such a thing; as also لا مُكَافَأَةَ. (TA.)
لَا يَحْجُو إِبِلَهُ, said of a pastor, He does not, or will not, keep and tend, or pasture and defend, his camels. (TA.) One says also of a pastor whose sheep or goats [and camels] are lost by him, and become dispersed, مَا يَحْجُو غَنَمَهُ وَلَا إِبِلَهُ [He does not keep his sheep or goats, nor his camels, from being lost and becoming dispersed]. (TA.)

حَجَا بِالْمَكَانِ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) inf. n. as above, (Ḳ,) He remained, stayed, dwelt, or abode, in the place, (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA,) and became fixed [therein]; (TA;) as alsoتحجّى↓ بِهِ. (Ṣ, Ḳ.) And حَجَا, (IAạr, Ḳ,) inf. n. as above, (IAạr,) He stopped, or paused. (IAạr, Ḳ.)
And حَجَا بِهِ, [inf. n. as above, (see Ḥam p. 523,)] He was, or became, tenacious, or avaricious, of it, namely, a thing; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) as alsoتحجّى↓ به. (TA.) And حَجِى بِهِ, (Fr, Ṣ, Ḳ,) aor. ـَ, inf. n. حَجًى [or حَجًا], (TḲ,) He was, or became attached to it, and clave to it; (Fr, Ṣ, Ḳ;) as also حَجِئَ به; andتحجّى↓ به; (Fr, Ṣ;) and تحجّأبه. (Fr, TA.) تحجّى↓ also signifies He kept to the حَجَا, or place of bending or turning of a valley. (TA.) Andتَحَجَّيْتُ↓ بِهٰذَا المَكَانِ I preceded you, or outwent you, to this place, and clave to it before you. (Ṣ, TA.) And [hence,]تحجّى↓ بِهِمْ is said to mean † He was first, or foremost, or quick, to blame them. (TA.)
حَجِىَ, (Ḳ, TA,) aor. ـَ, (TA,) is also [said to be] syn. with عَدَا, (Ḳ,) He ran; (TḲ;) thus bearing two contr. significations: (Ḳ:) but this requires consideration. (TA.)
[Golius, as on the authority of the KL, assigns to it also the meaning “Hilaris et lubens fuit:” but in this sense it is said in the KL to be with ء for its last radical letter: see art. حجأ.]
حَاجَيْتُهُ فَحَجَوْتُهُ↓, (T, Ṣ, Ḳ,) inf. n. of the former مُحَاجَاةٌ and حِجَآءٌ, (Ḳ,) I contended, or vied, with him in intelligence or skill and knowledge, or in endeavouring to show my superiority in intelligence &c., (فَاطَنْتُهُ,) and I overcame him therein; (Ḳ;) from حِجًى [or حِجًا] meaning “intelligence.” (Ḥar p. 9.) [And hence, I tried him with an enigma or enigmas, and overcame him therein: (see 6:) or] I proposed to him an enigma [&c.]: (T, TA:) [or I contended with him in proposing an enigma or enigmas, &c.]: i. e. دَاعَيْتُهُ فَغَلَبْتُهُ: (Ṣ:) so in the handwriting of Aboo-Zekereeyà, and in that of Aboo-Sahl, [and in my two copies of the Ṣ,] but in [some of the copies of] the Ṣ دعيته. (TA.) And حُوجِىَ بِهِ [He was tried with it as an enigma to be explained by him; or he had it proposed to him as an enigma]. (TA.)

تَحَاجَوْا They tried one another with enigmas: [or proposed enigmas, one to another: or contended, one with another, in proposing an enigma, or enigmas: (see 3:)] from حِجًى [or حِجًا] meaning “intelligence.” (Ḥar p. 189.) You say, يَتَحَاجَوْنَ بِأُحْجِيَّةٍ [They try one another with an enigma: or contend, one with another, in proposing an enigma]: (Ṣ, TA:) التَّحَاجِى signifying التَّدَاعِى. (TA.)
احتجى He found out, or discovered, (أَصَابَ,) that with which he was tried as an enigma to be explained by him. (TA.)

Bubbles upon water, arising from the drops of rain: pl. [or rather coll. gen. n.] of حَجَاةٌ↓: (Ṣ, Ḳ: [in the CK, erroneously, حِجاة:]) the latter word, which is like حَصَاةٌ, is explained by Az as signifying a bubble that rises upon water, like a flask; and as having for its pl. حَجَوَاتٌ: and the same word (حجاة) signifies also a pool of water, itself, such as is left by a torrent. (TA.)
حَجَا is also used, by poetic license, for حَجَاج, q. v. (TA in art. حج.)
حَجٍ: see حَجِىٌّ.
إِنَّهُ لَحَجِىٌ إِلَى بَنِى فُلَانٍ means لَا جِئٌ لَهُمْ [i. e. Verily he is betaking himself for refuge, or protection, to the sons of such a one; like لَحَجِئٌ: but by rule it should be لَحَجٍ; and thus, perhaps, it is correctly written]. (AZ, TA.)
حِجًا or حِجًى Intelligence, or understanding; (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ;) sagacity, or skill and knowledge: (Ḳ:) [said to be] from حَجَا meaning “he, or it, prevented, or withheld;” because it prevents, or withholds, a man from doing that which is bad, or corrupt. (TA.)
And i. q. مِقْدَارٌ [Quantity, measure, &c.]: pl. أَحْجَآءٌ. (Ḳ.)
[Also said by Golius, as on the authority of J, to signify “an enigma,” as though syn. with أُحْجِيَّةٌ; but I have not found it in this sense in any copy of the Ṣ, nor in any other lexicon.]
حَجَاةٌ: see حَجًا.
حَجْوَى a subst. signifying مُحَاجَاةٌ [i. e. A contention in intelligence &c.; and particularly, in trying with an enigma or enigmas; in proposing an enigma or enigmas; or simply the proposal of an enigma; see 3]; (T, TA;) the subst. denoted by حَاجَيْتُهُ فَحَجَوْتُهُ; (Ḳ;) [or rather by the verb حَاجَيْتُ, agreeably with the foregoing explanation from the T;] as alsoحُجَيَّا↓, (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA,) with a ḍammeh, (Ḳ, TA,) and with teshdeed of the ى; (TA; [in some copies of the Ḳ erroneously written حُجْيُا;]) andأُحْجِيَّةٌ↓: (Ṣ:) orحُجَيًّا↓ is the dim. of حَجْوَى: (T, TA:) andأُحْجِيَّةٌ↓ signifies a saying of which the meaning differs from the letter, as alsoأُحْجُوَّةٌ↓, (Ḳ,) but احجيّة is preferable, (T, TA,) andكَلِمَةٌ مُحْجِيَةٌ↓, (Ḳ,) like مُحْسِنَةٌ; (TA; [in the CK, erroneously, مُحْجِيَّةٌ;]) [i. e.]أُحْجِيَّةٌ↓ signifies an enigma; a riddle; (MA, PṢ, TḲ;) and soحُجَيَّا↓; (PṢ;) or a question put to one with the view of causing him to make a mistake; (TA;) and is from حِجًى [or حِجًا] meaning “intelligence,” because مُحَاجَاةٌ is like a vying, or contending, in intelligence: (Ḥar p. 9:) the pl. ofأُحْجِيَّةٌ↓ is أَحَاجِىُّ and أَحَاجٍ, (MA, and Ḥar ubi suprà,) agreeably with a general rule relating to words of its measure, as أُثْفِيَّةٌ and أُمْنِيَّةٌ. (Seer, in Ḥar ubi suprà.) One says,حُجَيَّاكَ↓ مَا كَانَ كَذَا وَكَذَا [The question of contention with thee in trying thine intelligence by an enigma, or the enigma proposed to thee, is, What is, or was, such a thing, and such a thing?]: it means a certain game, and a question put with the view of causing one to make a mistake: AʼObeyd says, It is like their saying, Disclose what is in my hand, and thou shalt have such a thing. (Ṣ.) One says also,أَنَا حُجَيَّاكَ↓ فِى هٰذَا, meaning مَنْ يُحَاجِيكَ [i. e. I am he who contends with thee in intelligence, or in trying with an enigma, &c., respecting this thing]. (Ṣ.) Andبَيْنَهُمْ أُحْجِيَّةٌ↓ يَتَحَاجَونَ بِهَا [Between them is a contention in intelligence, or in proposing enigmas, or between them is an enigma, with which they try one another]. (Ṣ.)
هُوَ حَجِىٌّ بِهِ He is adapted, disposed, apt, meet, suited, suitable, fitted, fit, competent, or proper, for it; or worthy of it; as alsoحَجٍ↓, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ, TA,) of which the pl. is حَجُونَ; (TA;) andحَجًى↓, (Ṣ, M, Ḳ, TA,) which last has no fem. nor dual nor pl. form, (Ṣ, M,) retaining the same form as fem. and dual and pl.: (M:) and in like manner you say,إِنَّهُ لَمَحْجَاةٌ↓ أَنْ يَفْعَلَ ذٰلِكَ Verily he is adapted, &c., to do that; (Ṣ, Ḳ;*) and إِنَّهَا لَمَحْجَاةٌ; and إِنَّهُمْ لَمَحْجَاةٌ. (Ṣ.)
حَجِىٌّ is also syn. with حَرِيصٌ [Vehemently desirous, eager, &c.]. (KL.)
حُجَيَّا: see حَجْوَى, in five places.
أحْجَى More, and most, adapted, disposed, apt, meet, suited, suitable, fitted, fit, competent, proper, or worthy: (TA, Ḥam p. 523:) so in the saying, هُوَ أَحْجَى أَنْ يَكُونَ كَذَا [He is more, or most, adapted, &c., to be thus; or worthy of being thus]: (TA:) and فُلَانٌ أَحْجَى بِكَذَا [Such a one is more, or most, adapted, &c., for such a thing; or worthy of it]. (Ḥam ubi suprà.) Hence, in a trad., مَعَاشِرُ هَمْدَانَ أَحْجَى حَىٍّ بِالكُوفَةِ [The companies of Hemdán are the most worthy tribe in El-Koofeh]: or, as some say, the meaning is, the most intelligent tribe. (TA.)
