In The Quran

(2:185) The month of Ramadan, in which the Quran was sent down as a guide to the people and a clarification of the guidance and the criterion. Therefore, those of you who witness (arab. شَهِدَ, shahida) the month shall fast therein. Whoever is ill or traveling, then the same number from different days. God wants to bring you ease and not to bring you hardship; and so that you may complete the count, and glorify God because He has guided you, that you may be thankful.

(3:81) God took a covenant from the prophets: "For what I have given you of the book and philosophy, then a messenger will come to you authenticating what is with you. You will acknowledge him and support him." He said, "Do you testify, and agree to this burden?" they said, "We testify." He said, "Then bear witness (Arab. فَاشْهَدُوا, fa-ish'hadū), and I am with you bearing witness."

To bear witness

(2:84) We have taken a covenant with you, "You shall not spill each other's blood, nor drive each other out from your homes." You agreed to this while bearing witness (arab. تَشْهَدُونَ, tashhadūna).

(43:86) Those whom they call on beside Him do not possess any intercession; except those who bear witness (arab. شَهِدَ, shahida) to the truth, and they fully know.

(41:20) When they come to it, their own hearing, eyes, and skins will bear witness (arab. شَهِدَ, shahida) to everything they had done.

Super-ego in Freud's model of the psyche

The Super-ego is one of three distinct, yet interacting agents in the psychic apparatus defined in Sigmund Freud's structural model of the psyche.

(50:21) And every ego is brought, with Id, and with a Super-ego (Arab. وَشَهِيدٌ, washahīdun).

The Lord is witness over all things

(41:53) We will show them Our signs in the horizons, and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is witness (Arab. شَهِيدٌ, shahīdun) over all things?
