The Elephant Tafsir
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Have you not considered, how your Lord dealt with the companions of the elephant?
Do you not know the story of Abrahah, and his army which also had elephants that tried to destroy the Ka’bah?
Did He not make their plan into misguidance
Did Allah not make their plan fail and destroy them despite all of their strength?
And He sent against them birds in flocks
Allah destroyed them with birds from the sky, one flock after another in quick succession.
Striking them with stones of hard clay
The birds pelted each member of the army with a stone of clay.
And He made them like eaten straw
The stones destroyed them so that they resembled straw that is eaten by grazing animals, chewed and then spat out.
This was how they were scattered on the earth.
