.Sura 105 | The Elephant |
    Yusuf Ali Pickthal Shakir  
  1 Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the Companions of the Elephant? Hast thou not seen how thy Lord dealt with the owners of the Elephant? Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with the possessors of the elephant?  
  2 Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? Did He not bring their stratagem to naught, Did He not cause their war to end in confusion,  
  3 And He sent against them Flights of Birds, And send against them swarms of flying creatures, And send down (to prey) upon them birds in flocks,  
  4 Striking them with stones of baked clay. Which pelted them with stones of baked clay, Casting against them stones of baked clay,  
  5 Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the corn) has been eaten up. And made them like green crops devoured (by cattle)? So He rendered them like straw eaten up?
