حَاجَةٌ (Ṣ, Ḳ, &c.) andحَائِجَةٌ↓, (AA, IDrd, &c.,) of which latter the former is a contraction, (Kh in the ʼEyn, TA,) or the latter word is unused [except as an epithet, as will be seen below], andحَوْجَآءُ↓, (Ṣ, Ḳ, &c.,) are syn. words, of which the meaning is well known: (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA:) Want; need; necessity, or necessitude; exigency: (TA:) [whence,] اِبْنُ حَاجَةً one who is constantly in want, or need: (Ḥar p. 143:) حَاجَةٌ is a more general term than فَقْرٌ; or each of these terms is more general than the other in some respects, and more particular in others: (TA:) and the former signifies also a thing wanted, needed, or required; an object of want, of need, or of exigence; a want; a needful, or requisite, thing, affair, or business: (A, TA:) [and a thing to be done, an affair, or a business:] pl. حَاجٌ↓, [or rather this is a coll. gen. n., of which حَاجَةٌ is the n. un.,] and حَاجَاتٌ, [which is of more frequent occurrence,] (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) and حِوَجٌ, [which is of rare occurrence,] (Ṣ, Ḳ,) and حَوَائِجُ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) which is anomalous, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) and was disapproved by Aṣ, and pronounced by him to be post-classical, but he disapproved it only because of its being anomalous, (Ṣ,) and he is said to have retracted his assertion of its being post-classical, (TA,) for it is of frequent occurrence in the [classical] language of the Arabs, (Ṣ,) in their verses and in the traditions: (IB, TA:) it seems as though formed from the sing. حَائِجَةٌ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) which some assert to have been not used; or, accord. to some, it may be pl. of حَوْجَآءُ, changed from the regular form of حَوَاجٍ, [originally حَوَاجِىُ,] like صَحَارٍ, by putting the [elided] ى before the ج, agreeably with what is often done in the language of the Arabs. (TA.) You say, قَضَى حَاجَتَهُ [He accomplished his want]: (TA:) a phrase which signifies [also] he did his business; meaning he eased nature. (ISk, TA.) And خُذْ حَاجَتَكَ مِنَ الطَّعَامِ [Take what thou wantest, or requirest, of the food]. (A.) And فِى نَفْسِى حَاجَةٌ andحَائِجَةٌ↓ andحَوْجَآءُ↓ [In my mind is a want]. (AA, TA.) And لِى عِنْدَ فُلَانٍ حَاجَةٌ [I want a thing of such a one]. (TA.) [When the thing wanted, or not wanted, is mentioned, or referred to by a pronoun, the subst. denoting it, or the pronoun referring to it, is preceded by إِلَى, as in the sayings لِى حَاجَةٌ إِلَى كَذَا I have a want of such a thing, and مَا لِى إِلَيْهِ حَاجَةٌ I have not any want of it, and مَا حَاجَتُكَ إِلَيْهِ What is the reason of thy want of it, or thy wanting it?] You say also,مَا بَقِىَ فِى حَوْجَآءُ↓ وَلَا لَوْجَآءُ إِلَّا قَضَاهَا There remained not in his bosom a want but he accomplished it. (TA.) [The dim. of حَوْجَآءُ is حُوَيْجَآءُ↓: whence the saying,] مَا لِى فِيهِ حَوْجَآءُ↓ وَلَا لَوْجَآءُ وَلَا حُوَيْجَآءُ↓ وَلَا لُوَيْجَآءُ I have no want, [nor any little want,] with respect to him, or it. (Lḥ, Ṣ, Ḳ.) [See also حَوْجَآءُ, below.] In the phrase حُجْ حُجَيَّاكَ [Seek the little thing that thou wantest], it seems that the second and third radical letters of the latter word [originally حُوَيْجَآءَكَ] have been transposed [and that حُجَيْوَآءَكَ has been then changed into حُجَيَّاكَ]. (IDrd, AAF, TA.)
حَوْجَآءُ: see حَاجَةٌ, in four places:
You say also, مَا فِى صَدْرِى بِهِ حَوْجَآءُ وَلَا لَوْجَآءُ There is not in my bosom any doubt respecting him, or it. (Th, Ṣ, Ḳ.) Andلَيْسَ فِى أَمْرِكَ حُوَيْجَآءُ↓ وَلَا لُوَيْجَآءُ وَلَا رُوَيْغَةٌ [There is not any doubt in, or respect of, thine affair, or thy case]. (Ṣ.)
And كَلَّمْتُهُ فَمَا رَدَّ عَلَىَّ حَوْجَآءَ وَلَا لَوْجَآءَ, like the phrase فَمَا رَدَّ عَلَىَّ سَوْدَآءَ وَلَا بَيْضَآءَ, i. e. I spoke to him, and he returned me not a bad word nor a good one. (ISk, Ṣ, Ḳ.)
حُوَيْجَآءُ: see حَاجَةٌ, in two places:
You say also, خُذْ حُوَيْجَآءَ مِنَ الأَرْضِ Take thou a different and winding road of the land. (Ḳ.)

You say also حَاجَةٌ حَائِجَةٌ andحَاجَةٌ حَوْجَآءُ↓ A great want; a thing much wanted. (TA.)
مُحْوِجٌ A man in want, needy, indigent, or poor; (Mṣb, TA;) [as alsoمُحْتَاجٌ↓:] the pl., by rule, should be مُحْوِجُونَ because it is an epithet applied to a rational being; but the pl. used is مَجَاوِيجُ: some, however, reject this, and assert that it has not been heard [as a classical word]: (Mṣb:) ISd thinks that محاويج is pl. ofمِحْوَاجٌ↓, if the latter word have been used: (TA:) the vulgar say مَحَاوِجُ [as pl. of مُحْوِجٌ], meaning مُحْتَاجُونَ. (Mgh.)

مُحْتَاجٌ: see the next preceding paragraph.
