قَالَ خُذۡهَا وَلَا تَخَفۡ ۖ سَنُعِيدُهَا سِيرَتَهَا ٱلۡأُولَىٰ
(Allah) said, "Seize it, and fear not: We shall return it at once to its former condition"..<br/>
He said, 'Take [hold of] it and do not fear, it. We will restore it to its former state (seeratahaa, in the accusative because the genitive-operating preposition has been removed). And so he placed his hand in its mouth and it became a staff once again; and it became clear that the place into which he put his hand was the place where it [the staff] is held, between its two prongs. Moses was shown this [miracle] lest he be terrified when it turns into a snake in the presence of Pharaoh.
