Idioms are classified as figurative langage which is the use of words in an unusual or imaginative manner.

Figurative language includes the use of metaphors, similes, personification, hyperbole, euphemisms and pun.

It's the case right there because Cain was the first murderer in the Bible, having killed his brother Abel, people use the expression "raising Cain" to describe acts of violence, criminal activity, or any other mischievous acts.

Please rate the answer. I would appreciate.
