1. Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the owners of the Elephant? 2. Did He not make their plot go astray? 3. And He sent against them birds, in flocks. 4. Striking them with stones of sijjil (baked clay). 5. And he made them like (an empty field of) stalks (of which corn has been eaten up by the cattle).
In this surah, Allah relates the fate of the army of Abraha (the people of the elephant). Abraha intending to destroy the Kaa'ba, approached Mecca with his army consisting of men and elephants. As the surah proceeds we learn that Allah destroys the army with stones.
