بَأْسنَا

Appears 8 times in the Quran. (Root: باس)
  1. Yet why did they not, when Our punishment came to them, humble themselves? But their hearts hardened and the Shaitan made what they did fair-seeming to them.

  2. Those who are polytheists will say: If Allah had pleased we would not have associated (aught with Him) nor our fathers, nor would we have forbidden (to ourselves) anything; even so did those before them reject until they tasted Our punishment. Say: Have you any knowledge with you so you should bring it forth to us? You only follow a conjecture and you only tell lies.

  3. And how many a town that We destroyed, so Our punishment came to it by night or while they slept at midday.

  4. What! do the people of the towns then feel secure from Our punishment coming to them by night while they sleep?

  5. What! do the people of the towns feel secure from Our punishment coming to them in the morning while they play?

  6. Until when the messengers despaired and the people became sure that they were indeed told a lie, Our help came to them and whom We pleased was delivered; and Our punishment is not averted from the guilty people.

  7. But when they saw Our punishment, they said: We believe in Allah alone and we deny what we used to associate with Him.

  8. But their belief was not going to profit them when they had seen Our punishment; (this is) Allah's law, which has indeed obtained in the matter of His servants, and there the unbelievers are lost.
