105. The Elephant

  1. Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt withthe Companions of the Elephant?

  2. Did He not make their treacherous plango astray?

  3. And He sent against them Flights ofBirds,

  4. Striking them with stones of baked clay.

  5. Then did He make them like an emptyfield of stalks and straw, (of which the corn) has been eaten up.
