Al Fil (The Elephant)


1. Alam tara kaifa fa'ala rabbuka bi ashaabil feel


أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِأَصْحَابِ الْفِيلِ


Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the Companions of the Elephant?


2. Alam yaj'al kaidahum fee tadleel


أَلَمْ يَجْعَلْ كَيْدَهُمْ فِي تَضْلِيلٍ


Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray?


3. Wa arsala 'alaihim tairan abaabeel


وَأَرْسَلَ عَلَيْهِمْ طَيْرًا أَبَابِيلَ


And He sent against them Flights of Birds,


4. Tarmeehim bihijaaratim min sijjeel


تَرْمِيهِمْ بِحِجَارَةٍ مِنْ سِجِّيلٍ


Striking them with stones of baked clay.


5. Faja 'alahum ka'asfim m'akool


فَجَعَلَهُمْ كَعَصْفٍ مَأْكُولٍ


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