Alam tara kaifa fa’ala rabbuka be askhabil Feel. Alam yaj’al kaidahom fi tazleel. Wa arsala alaihim tairan ababeel. Tarmeehim behejaratim min sijjeel. Faja’ala hum ka ‘asfim ma’kool.
“बिस्मिल्लाहिर-रहमानिर-रहीम। अलम तरा कैफा फा’ला रब्बुका बि-अशाबिल-फील। अलम यजअल कैदहुम् फी तद्लील। वा अरसल अलैहिम तैरँ अबाबील। तरम्मीहिम बिहिजरातिँ मिन सिज्जील। फजा’लहुम का अस्फिन् माकूल।”
Have you not considered, [O Muhammad], how your Lord dealt with the companions of the elephant? Did He not make their plan into misguidance? And He sent against them birds in flocks, Striking them with stones of hard clay, And He made them like eaten straw.”
