Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall and Yusufali's Translation

Surah Fil: The Elephant

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yusufali:    Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the Companions of the Elephant?
Pickthall:   Hast thou not seen how thy Lord dealt with the owners of the Elephant?
Yusufali:    Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray?
Pickthall:   Did He not bring their stratagem to naught,
Yusufali:    And He sent against them Flights of Birds,
Pickthall:   And send against them swarms of flying creatures,
Yusufali:    Striking them with stones of baked clay.
Pickthall:   Which pelted them with stones of baked clay,
Yusufali:    Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the corn) has been eaten up.
Pickthall:   And made them like green crops devoured (by cattle)?


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
