رفض رفع رفغ

1. (رفع)

رَفَعَهُ, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) aor. ـَ, (Ḳ, TA,) inf. n. رَفْعٌ, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb,) He raised it: [this is generally the best rendering, as it serves to indicate several particular significations which will be found explained in what follows:] he elevated it; upraised it; uplifted it: he took it up: contr. of خَفَضَهُ: (Mṣb:) or of وَضَعَهُ: (Ṣ, Mgh, Ḳ:) as alsoرفّعهُ↓, (Ḳ,) inf. n. تَرْفِيعٌ; (TA;) andارتفعهُ↓; (Ḳ;) for accord. to the “Nawádir,” you say, ارتفعهُ بِيَدِهِ and رَفَعَهُ [he raised it, lifted it, heaved it, or took it up, with his hand]; but Az says that ارتفع is intrans., and that he has heard no authority for its being trans., in the sense of رَفَعَ, except that which he had read in the “Nawádir el-Aaráb:” (TA:) رَفْعٌ is sometimes applied to corporeal things, meaning the raising, or elevating, a thing from the resting-place thereof: sometimes to a building, meaning the rearing it, uprearing it, or making it high or lofty: (Er-Rághib:) or in relation to corporeal things, it is used properly to denote motion, and removal: (Mṣb:) it signifies the putting away or removing or turning back a thing after the coming or arriving thereof; like as دَفْعٌ signifies the putting away or removing or turning back a thing before the coming or arriving [thereof]: (Kull p. 185:) but in relation to ideal things, it is [tropically used, as it is also in many other cases, and] accorded in meaning to what the case requires. (Mṣb.) [In its principal senses, proper and tropical, رَفْعٌ agrees with the Latin Tollere..] It is said in the Ḳur [ii. 60 and 87], رَفَعْنَا فَوْقَكُمُ ٱلطُّورَ We raised above you from its resting-place the mountain: and in the same [xii. 2], اَللّٰهُ ٱلَّذِى رَفَعَ السَّمٰوَاتِ بِغَيْرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوْنَهَا [God is He who raised the heavens without pillars that ye see; or, as ye see them]: and in the same [ii. 121], وَإِذْ يَرْفَعُ إِبْرٰهِيمُ القَوَاعِدَ مِنَ البَيْتِ [And when Abraham] was rearing or uprearing or making high or lofty [the foundations of the House of God, at Mekkeh]. (Er-Rághib.) And you say, اِرْفَعْ هٰذَا Take thou this: (Mgh:) or take it and carry it [away; or take it up and remove it]. (TA.) And رَفَعَ الزَّرعَ, (Lḥ, Ḳ,) or رَفَعَهُ إِلَى البَيْدَرِ, (Mṣb,) aor. ـَ, (Lḥ,) inf. n. رَفْعٌ (Lḥ, Ṣ) and رِفَاعَةٌ and رِفَاعٌ [perhaps a mistranscription for رَفَاعُ, which see below], (Lḥ, TA,) He removed, or transported, the seed-produce from the place in which he had reaped it, (Lḥ,) or carried it after the reaping, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) to the place in which the grain was to be trodden out. (Lḥ, Ṣ, Ḳ.) [This last signification is said in the TA to be tropical; but according to a passage of the Mṣb quoted in the first sentence of this art., it is proper. In most of the phrases here following, the verb is undoubtedly used tropically.]

(Er-Rághib.) But the words, وَإِلَى السَّمَآءِ كَيْفَ رُفِعَتْ, in the Ḳur [lxxxviii. 18], indicate two meanings; And to the heaven, how it is elevated in respect of its place; and † how it is exalted in respect of excellence, and exaltation of rank. (Er-Rághib.) [In like manner also,] فِى بُيُوتٍ أَذِنَ ٱللّٰهُ أَنْ تُرْفَعَ, in the Ḳur [xxiv. 36], means In houses which God hath permitted to be built; (Bḍ, TA;) accord. to some: (TA:) or, † to be honoured; (Zj, Bḍ;) so says El-Ḥasan; (Zj;) or, † to be exalted in estimation. (Er-Rághib.) It is said in a trad., إِنَّ ٱللّٰهَ يَرْفَعُ العَدْلَ وَيَخْفِضُهُVerily God exalteth the just, and maketh him to have the ascendency over the unjust, and at one time abaseth him, so that He maketh the unjust to overcome him, in order to try his creatures, in the present world. (Az, TA.) [See also art. خفض.] And you say, رَفَعَهُ عَلَى صَاحِبِهِ فِى المَجْلِسِHe advanced him above his companion [in the sitting-place, or sitting-room, or assembly]. (TA.)
