Appears 6 times in the Quran. (Root: اخذ)
  1. They have taken their doctors of law and their monks for lords besides Allah, and (also) the Messiah son of Marium and they were enjoined that they should serve one Allah only, there is no god but He; far from His glory be what they set up (with Him).

  2. And We do not send messengers but as givers of good news and warning, and those who disbelieve make a false contention that they may render null thereby the truth, and they take My communications and that with which they are warned for a mockery.

  3. Thus it is that their recompense is hell, because they disbelieved and held My communications and My messengers in mockery.

  4. Or have they taken gods from the earth who raise (the dead).

  5. They make their oaths to serve as a cover so they turn away from Allah's way; therefore they shall have an abasing chastisement.

  6. They make their oaths a shelter, and thus turn away from Allah's way; surely evil is that which they do.
