رجحن رجز رجس
رَجِزَ, [aor. ـَ,] (Ṣ,) inf. n. رَجَزٌ, (TA,) He (a camel) had the disease termed رَجَزٌ [expl. below]. (Ṣ.)
رَجَزَ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) aor. ـُ, (Mṣb, TA,) inf. n. رَجْزٌ, (TA,) He said, spoke, uttered, or recited, poetry, or verse, of the metre termed رَجَزٌ; [see this word below;] he spoke in verse of that metre; he poetized, or versified, in that metre; as alsoارتجز↓; (Ṣ,* Mṣb, Ḳ,* TA;) and in like manner ارجز↓, he composed verses of that metre. (Ibn-Buzurj, L in art. قصد.) You say also, رَجَزَبِهِ He recited to him (أَنْشَدَهُ [so in more than one MṢ. copy of the Ḳ, and in the TA, but in the CK أَنْشَدَ, without the affixed pronoun, which is probably wrong,]) a poem of that metre; as alsoرجّزهُ↓, (Ḳ, TA,) inf. n. تَرْجِيزٌ. (TA.) Andترجّز↓ He urged, or excited, his camels by singing رَجَز, or his رَجَز: so accord. to different copies of the Ḳ. (TA.)
[Hence,] رَجَزَتِ الرِّيحُ, inf. n. رَجْزٌ, † The wind was continuous, or lasting. (TA.) Andارتجز↓ الرَّعْدُ ‡ The thunder made uninterrupted sounds, like the recitation of the رَاجِز: (A, TA:) or, as alsoترجّز↓, made a sound: (Ḳ:) or made consecutive sounds. (TA.) Andالبَحْرُ يَرْتَجِزُ↓ بَآذِيِّهِ ‡ [The sea makes a continuous sound, or murmuring, with its waves]; as alsoيَتَرَجَّزُ↓. (A, TA.) [And hence, perhaps,]ترجّز↓ السَّحَابُ ‡ The clouds moved slowly by reason of the abundance of their water. (Ḳ, TA.) [See also 6.]
رجّزهُ: see 1.
راجز صَاحِبَهُ [He recited verses, or poetry, of the metre termed رَجَز with his companion: or vied with him in doing so: see 6]. (A.)
see 1, in four places.
تراجزوا i. q. تَنَازَعُوا الرَّجَزَ بَيْنَهُمْ, (A, Ḳ,) and تَعَاطَوْهُ, (TA,) i. e. They recited verses, or poetry, of the metre termed رَجَز, one with another: (TḲ:) [or vied, one with another, in doing so.]
[Hence,] تراجز السَّحَابُ ‡ [The clouds combined, one with another, in uninterrupted thundering]. (A.) [See also 1.]
see 1, in three places.
رُجْزٌ: see the next paragraph, in four places.
رِجْزٌ properly signifies Commotion, agitation, or convulsion; and consecutiveness of motions. (TA.)
Hence, (TA,) Punishment (Aboo-Is-ḥáḳ, Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ) [like رِجْسٌ] that agitates by its vehemence, and occasions vehement consecutive commotions; (Aboo-Is-ḥáḳ, Mgh,* TA;) as alsoرُجْزٌ↓: (Ḳ:) so in the Ḳur vii. 131; (Aboo-Is-ḥáḳ;) and in ii. 56, and vii. 162, and xxix. 33. (Ṣ.)
Conduct that leads to punishment: so, accord. to some, in the Ḳur lxxiv. 5; (TA;) where some read الرِّجْزَ and others الرُّجْزَ↓: (Ṣ, TA:) ↓ the latter is also expl. as signifying sin: (TA:) and both, uncleanness; or filth: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) so in that instance: like رِجْسٌ: (Ṣ:) and polytheism; or the associating of another, or others, with the true God: (Ḳ, TA:) so, accord to some, in that instance: because he who worships what is not God is in doubt respecting his case, and unsettled in his belief: (TA:) and the worship of idols: (Ḳ:) so, accord. to some, in the same instance: (TA:) or the meaning there is and idol: (Mujáhid, Ṣ:) or↓ the latter word signifies a certain idol; being the name thereof: (Ḳatádeh, TA:) and the devil: and his suggestions. (TA.)
Also Plague, or pestilence; syn. طَاعُونٌ. (Mgh.)
رَجَزٌ A certain disease which attacks camels, in the rump; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) so that when a she-camel rises, or is roused, her thighs tremble for a while, and then stretch out: (Ṣ:) or it is when there is a convulsive motion in the hind leg or the thighs of a camel, when he desires to stand up, or rises, or is roused, for a while, and then a stretching out of the same. (TA.)
Hence, (Ṣ,) الرَّجَزُ is the name of A certain species [or kind] of verse or poetry; (Ṣ, A, Ḳ;) a species [or kind] of the metres of verse; (Mṣb;) consisting of the measure مُسْتَفْعِلُنْ [primarily] six times: (Ḳ:) a metre easy to the ear and impressive to the mind; wherefore it may be reduced to a single hemistich, and also to two feet instead of six: (TA:) so called because it commences with a motion and a quiescence, [i. e., a movent and a quiescent letter,] followed by a motion and a quiescence; and so in the other feet; resembling the رَجَز in a she-camel, which consists in her quivering and then being quiet: (TA:) or because of the contractedness of its feet, and the fewness of its letters: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) or because it is [characterized by] صُدُور without أَعْجَاز [lit. breasts without rumps; for, as the two hemistichs generally rhyme with each other, the verse seems as though it had no عَجُز; i. e., as though its last foot should rather be called عَرُوضٌ, like the last of the first hemistich, than عَجُزٌ:] (TA:) Akh once said, رَجَزٌ, with the Arabs, is whatever consists of three feet; and it is that [kind of verse] which they sing in their work, and in driving their camels: [see بِذْلَةٌ, last sentence:] ISd says that certain of those in whom he placed confidence related this on the authority of Kh. (TA.) Some say that it is not verse, or poetry, but a kind of rhyming prose; but Kh held it to be true verse, or poetry: so in the M: but in the T it is said [as in the Ḳ] that Kh asserted it to be not poetry, but halves or thirds of verses: one of his reasons for this assertion [the only one that seems to have had much weight with the Muslims] is, that Moḥammad once said,
* أَنَا النَّبِىُّ لَا كَذِبْ ** أَنَا ٱبْنُ عَبْدِ المُطَّلِبْ *
[which is an instance of a species of رَجَز, meaning, “I am the Prophet: it is no lie: I am the son of ʼAbd-el-Muttalib”]: and were this verse, he would not have said it, as is shown by what is said in the Ḳur., xxxvi. 69: but on this point, Akh has contended against him. (TA.)
رِجَازَةٌ A certain vehicle for women, (Ṣ,* TA,) a thing smaller than the هَوْدَج: (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA:) pl. رَجَائِزُ: (TA:) or a [garment of the kind called] كِسَآء, (Ṣ, Ḳ, TA,) in which is a stone, (Ḳ, TA, [in the CK a while stone,]) or in which are put stones, (Ṣ,) and which is suspended to one of the two sides of the هودج, to balance it, when it inclines: (Ṣ, TA:) so called because of its commotion: (TA:) or a thing consisting of a pillow and skins, or hides, put in one of its two sides for that purpose, and called رِجَازَةُ المَيْلِ: (T, TA:) or hair, (Ḳ,) or red hair, (TA,) or wool, suspended to the هورج, (Ḳ, TA,) for ornament: pl. رَجَائِزُ, said to occur in a verse of EshShemmákh: but accord. to Aṣ, this is a mistake for جَزَائِزُ [pl. of جَزِيزَةٌ, q. v.]. (TA.)
رَجَّازٌ and رَجَّازَةٌ: see رَاجِزٌ; the latter, in two places.
رَاجِزٌ One who utters, or recites, poetry, or verse, of the metre termed رَجَزٌ; who speaks in verse of that metre; who poetizes, or versifies, in that metre: and in like manner,مُرْتَجِزٌ↓, andرَجَّازٌ↓ [which signifies one who does so much], andرَجَّازَةٌ↓ [one who does so very much]. (TA.) El-ʼAjjáj has been placed the highest in rank as a راجز. (Mz, 49th نوع.) [His son, Ru-beh, seems to occupy nearly an equal place. Each of them composed a complete deewán of رَجَز.]
[Hence,]سَحَابَةٌ رَجَّازَةٌ↓ ‡ [A cloud thundering much, or uninterruptedly]. (A, TA.) Andغَيْثٌ مُرْتَجِزٌ↓, andمُتَرَجِّزٌ↓, ‡ Rain accompanied by thunder. (TA.)
أَرْجَزُ A camel having the disease termed رَجَزٌ: fem. رَجْزَآءُ: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) the latter is explained as signifying weak in the rump, that does not move from her place unless after twice or thrice rising from the place where she lay: and that does not rise, when she desires to do so, unless after vehement trembling. (TA.)
[Hence,] إِنَّهَا لَرَجْزَآءُ, said of the wind (الرِّيح), † Verily it is continuous, or lasting. (TA.) And رَجْزَآءُ القِيَامِ ‡ A great, heavy cooking-pot. (TA.)
أُرْجُوزَةٌ A poem of the metre termed رَجَزٌ: (Mṣb, Ḳ:) pl. أَرَاجِيزُ. (A, Ḳ.)
مُرْتَجِزٌ: see رَاجِزٌ; the former, in two places.
مُتَرَجِّزٌ: see رَاجِزٌ; the former, in two places.
