105. al-Fil: The Elephant

1 Hast thou not seen how thy Lord dealt with the owners of the Elephant ?

2 Did He not bring their stratagem to naught,

3 And send against them swarms of flying creatures,

4 Which pelted them with stones of baked clay,

5 And made them like green crops devoured (by cattle) ?
