أَخَذَهُمُ

Appears 7 times in the Quran. (Root: اخذ)

  2. In the manner of the people of Firon and those before them; they disbelieved in Allah's communications, therefore Allah destroyed them on account of their faults; surely Allah is strong, severe in requiting (evil).

  3. And certainly there came to them a Messenger from among them, but they rejected him, so the punishment overtook them while they were unjust.

  4. So the punishment overtook them. Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.

  5. And certainly We sent Nuh to his people, so he remained among them a thousand years save fifty years. And the deluge overtook them, while they were unjust.

  6. Have they not travelled in the earth and seen how was the end of those who were before them? Mightier than these were they in strength-- and in fortifications in the land, but Allah destroyed them for their sins; and there was not for them any defender against Allah.

  7. That was because there came to them their messengers with clear arguments, but they rejected (them), therefore Allah destroyed them; surely He is Strong, Severe in retribution.
