The Elephant

Al-Fil


1
أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِأَصْحَابِ الْفِيلِ
Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with the possessors of the elephant?

2
أَلَمْ يَجْعَلْ كَيْدَهُمْ فِي تَضْلِيلٍ
Did He not cause their war to end in confusion,

3
وَأَرْسَلَ عَلَيْهِمْ طَيْرًا أَبَابِيلَ
And send down (to prey) upon them birds in flocks,

4
تَرْمِيهِمْ بِحِجَارَةٍ مِنْ سِجِّيلٍ
Casting against them stones of baked clay,

5
فَجَعَلَهُمْ كَعَصْفٍ مَأْكُولٍ
So He rendered them like straw eaten up?
