The hemzeh of the↓ second is sometimes elided; and this is done to assimilate the word to مَنْجَا, when it is used therewith; like as منجا is written with hemzeh to assimilate it in the like case to مَلْجَأٌ.
[ملجأٌ↓ is often applied to a man: and you say also,] فُلَانٌ حَسَنُ المَلْجَإِ↓ [Such a one is a good person to whom to have recourse for protection or concealment]. The pl. of لَجَأٌ is أَلْجَآءٌ. (TA.)
