He who lowers and puts one in degradation.
“Say: “O Allah! Lord of Power (and Rule), Thou givest Power to whom Thou pleasest, and Thou strip- pest off Power from whom Thou pleasest: Thou enduest with honour whom Thou pleasest, and Thou BRINGEST LOW whom Thou pleasest: in Thy hand is all Good.
Verily, over all things Thou hast power.”
(3:26) The Qur’an
From the root dh-l-l with the classical Arabic connotations: to be low, base, abject, paltry to be vile, contemptible, despicable to be inglorious, abased, humble to be lowly, submissive, weak to be tractable, easy, manageable
