(مقاييس اللغة)

 الْمِيمُ وَالشِّينُ وَالْجِيمُ أَصْلٌ صَحِيحٌ، وَهُوَ الْخَلْطُ.

That it signifies mixture, blending, commixture, cluster.

لسان العرب — ابن منظور

المشَجُ والمَشِيجُ: كُلُّ لَوْنينِ اخْتلَطا، وَقِيلَ: هُوَ مَا اخْتَلَطَ مِنْ حُمْرَةٍ وَبَيَاضٍ،

That it signifies mixing, mingling of all colours; and some say it is clustering, mixing of shades of red and white.

Lane Lexicon: He mixed, or confused, syn. خَلَطَ,  one thing with (بِ) another. [A drop consisting of] mixtures; meaning the sperma genitale, because it is a mixture of various kinds:

Classical Lexicons

  • It is a fact that Our Majesty has created the Man in his present state from a sub-set of a sperm. Its (sperm's) characteristic is that it is a set of gathering -concentration of multiple clusters of pairs (called chromosomes in biology).

  • Our Majesty keeps subjecting him (Man) to exposure trials. Therefore, We have rendered him a listening - acoustic and observing - optical person. [76:02]

Noun: Indefinite; broken plural; feminine; genitive; [ مَشِجٌ Singular]. It is the adjectival portrayal of preceding noun. It signifies mixture-cluster of two things, mix or confuse two things, mixture of colour red and white. Its plurality shows that the constituent parts of a Sperm are multiple pairs. Today, we know that it is constituent of 23 pairs.
