The surah that opens with the oath of the Divine One swearing by the sky of the world and The Nightly Visitor so called because it comes by night and leaves by day. It takes its name from verse 1 which mentions "the night-comer" or "nightly visitor" (ṭāriq). The surah focuses on a series of examples of things coming out: the piercing night-star, spurting semen, the baby that bursts out of the womb, and plants that sprout out of the ground. All of these are used to illustrate resurrection from the grave.
