وَأَنْ أَلْقِ عَصَاكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهَا تَهْتَزُّ كَأَنَّهَا جَآنٌّ وَلَّىٰ مُدْبِراً وَلَمْ يُعَقِّبْ يٰمُوسَىٰ أَقْبِلْ وَلاَ تَخَفْ إِنَّكَ مِنَ ٱلآمِنِينَ
-Al-Qasas ( القصص )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And: ‘Throw down your staff’, and he threw it down. And when he saw it quivering, moving, as if it were a serpent (jānn: is a small snake [so called] because of the speed of its movement) he turned his back, to flee from it, and did not look back, in other words, he did not return, and so there called out [the voice]: ‘O Moses! Come forward, and do not be afraid. Indeed you are safe.
