He who uplifts, raises up.
“He it is Who hath placed you as viceroys of the earth and hath EXALTED SOME OF YOU IN RANK ABOVE OTHERS, that He may try you by (the test of) that which He hath given you. Lo! Thy Lord is swift in prosecution, and Lo! He verily is Forgiving, Merciful.”
(6:165) The Holy Quran
From the root r-f-' with the classical Arabic connotations: to elevate something to uplift, exalt, make honorable, make eminent.
