'Alam Tará Kayfa Fa`ala Rabbuka Bi'aşĥābi Al-Fīl Have you not considered how your Rabb dealt with the Army of the Elephant (reference is made to Abraha, a Christian king of Yaman, who attacked Makkah with the army of elephants in the year of the Prophet Muhammads birth)?[105.1]
'Alam Yaj`al Kaydahum Fī Tađlīlin Did He not make their treacherous plan a flop?[105.2]
Wa 'Arsala `Alayhim Ţayrāan 'Abābīla And send against them flocks of birds,[105.3]
Tarmīhim Biĥijāratin Min Sijjīlin which pelted them with stones of baked clay,[105.4]
Faja`alahum Ka`aşfin Ma'kūlin thus rendered them like the chewed-up chaff.[105.5]
