Sūra CV.

Fīl, or The Elephant.

In the name of God, Most Gracious,
Most Merciful.

1. Seest thou not
How thy Lord dealt
With the Companions
Of the Elephant?

2. Did He not make
Their treacherous plan
Go astray?

3. And He sent against them
Flights of Birds,

4. Striking them with 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.
