The Elephant

Arabic text · English translation


Classification Meccan
Structure 5 verses

Al-Fil (Arabic: سورة الفيل‎, "The Elephant") is the 105th chapter (sura) of the Quran. It is a Meccan sura consisting of 5 verses.

Notes

The year of Muhammad's birth is identified as 'the Year of the Elephant', when Mecca was attacked by Abraha accompanied by an elephant. Quranic exegetes interpreted that God saved the Meccans from this force by sending a swarm of birds that pelted the invaders with clay stones and drove them away. A number of other interpretations exist.[1] [2]

There is uncertainty about the origin of the word sijjīl (lumps of hard clay) in verse 4. The etymologies proposed for sijjīl include the Persian sang and gil ('stone' and 'clay'), or Aramaic sgyl ('smooth altar stone'), or Syriac sīgīliyon ('seal, diploma').[3] In the Quran 'sijjīl' occurs in two other verses: 11:82 and 15:74.
