* | quran | * | 105. al-fil. the elephant      <   > 

1.  *     Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with the Army of the Elephant  (reference is made to Abraha, a Christian king of Yaman, who attacked Mecca with  the army of elephants in the year of the Prophet Muhammadís birth)?[1]
2.  *     Did He not  make their treacherous plan a flop?[2]
3.  *     And send against them flocks of birds,[3]
4.  *     which pelted them with stones of baked clay,[4]
5.  *     thus rendered them like the chewed- up chaff.[5]
