27:10
وَأَلْقِ عَصَاكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهَا تَهْتَزُّ كَأَنَّهَا جَانّ ٌ وَلَّى مُدْبِرا ً وَلَمْ يُعَقِّبْ يَا مُوسَى لاَ تَخَفْ إِنِّي لاَ يَخَافُ لَدَيَّ الْمُرْسَلُونَ
Wa 'Alqi `Aşāka Falammā Ra'āhā Tahtazzu Ka'annahā Jānnun Wallá Mudbirāan Wa Lam Yu`aqqib Yā Mūsá Lā Takhaf 'Innī Lā Yakhāfu Ladayya Al-Mursalūna 

 

"And throw down your staff." So when he saw it vibrate as if it were a Jinn (snake), he ran away and would not turn back. "O Moses, do not fear, for My messengers shall have no fear from Me."

 

28:31
وَأَنْ أَلْقِ عَصَاكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهَا تَهْتَزُّ كَأَنَّهَا جَانّ ٌ وَلَّى مُدْبِرا ً وَلَمْ يُعَقِّبْ يَامُوسَى أَقْبِلْ وَلاَ تَخَفْ إِنَّكَ مِنَ الآمِنِينَ
Wa 'An 'Alqi `Aşāka Falammā Ra'āhā Tahtazzu Ka'annahā Jānnun Wallá Mudbirāan Wa Lam Yu`aqqib Yā Mūsá 'Aqbil Wa Lā Takhaf 'Innaka Mina Al-'Āminīna 

 

"Now, throw down your staff." So when he saw it vibrate as if it were a Jinn (snake), he turned around to flee and would not return. "O Moses, come forward and do not be afraid. You are of those who are safe."
