The Meaning of al-fil


The Meaning of al-fil!

{ أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِأَصْحَابِ ٱلْفِيلِ }

 

And from his narration on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas that he said about the interpretation of Allah’s saying (Hast thou not seen): ‘(Hast thou not seen) i.e. have you not been informed, O Muhammad, in the Qur’an (how thy Lord dealt with) how your Lord punished and destroyed (the owners of the Elephant) the people of the Negus who intended to destroy the House of Allah?
 
{ أَلَمْ يَجْعَلْ كَيْدَهُمْ فِي تَضْلِيلٍ } 

(Did He not bring their stratagem) their scheming (to naught) to utter loss,

{ وَأَرْسَلَ عَلَيْهِمْ طَيْراً أَبَابِيلَ }

 

(And send against them) and set on them (swarms of flying creatures) in succession,
 
{ تَرْمِيهِم بِحِجَارَةٍ مِّن سِجِّيلٍ } 

(Which pelted them with) which threw on them (stones of baked clay) like baked bricks.
 
{ فَجَعَلَهُمْ كَعَصْفٍ مَّأْكُولٍ } 

(And made them like green crops devoured) by worms?’
