Root: miim ayn nuun

Weight : faa'ool

Its plural is mawaa'een

small things, petty things, utensil, implement, vessel, instrument.

Reference: A Word for Word Meaning of the Qur'an by Muhammad Mohar Ali 107:7

Lane's Lexicon does not cover some roots properly including miim ayn nuun and this word is not even found in Lane's Lexicon, since Lane couldn't complete the work himself and died while working on Qaaf.

Any reference giving the word as plural instead of singular?
