The Elephant Refuses To Move
Abrahah, who came from Abyssinia-a country in Africa-conquered Yemen and
was made vice-regent there. Later, he noticed that at a certain time of
the year large numbers of people would travel from all over Yemen and
the rest of Arabia to Mecca. He asked the reason for this and was told
that they were going on pilgrimage to the Ka'bah. Abrahah hated the idea
of Mecca being more important than his own country, so he decided to
build a church of colored marble, with doors of gold and ornaments of
silver, and ordered the people to visit it instead of the Ka'bah. But no
one obeyed him.
Abrahah became angry and decided to destroy the Ka'bah.
He prepared a large army led by an elephant and set off towards Mecca.
When the Meccans heard that he was coming they became very frightened.
Abrahah's army was huge and they could not fight it. But how could they
let him destroy the Holy Ka'bah? They went to ask the advice of their
leader, 'Abd al-Muttalib. When Abrahah arrived outside Mecca, 'Abd
al-Muttalib went to meet him. Abrahah said, 'What do you want?' Abrahah
had taken Abd al-Muttalib's camels, which he had found grazing as he
entered Mecca, so 'Abd al-Muttalib replied, 'I want my camels back.'
Abrahah was very surprised and said, 'I have come to destroy your Holy
Ka'bah, the holy place of your fathers, and you ask me about some
camels?' 'Abd al-Muttalib replied calmly, 'The camels belong to me; the
Ka'bah belongs to Allah and He will protect it.' Then he left Abrahah
and went back to Quraysh and ordered them to leave Mecca and wait for
their enemies in the mountains.
In the morning Abrahah prepared to enter the town.
He put armor on his elephant and drew up his troops for battle. He
intended to destroy the Ka'bah and then return to Yemen. At that moment,
however, the elephant knelt down and refused to get up, no matter how
much the soldiers tried to get it to move by beating it.
But when they turned its face in the direction of Yemen it immediately
got up and started off. In fact, it did the same in any other direction,
but as soon as they pointed it towards Mecca it knelt down again.
Suddenly, flocks of birds appeared from over the sea. Each bird carried
three stones as small as peas and they dropped them on Abrahah's army.
The soldiers suddenly fell ill. Even Abrahah was hit by the stones and
fled in fear with the rest of his army back to Yemen, where he later
died. On seeing their enemy flee the Arabs came down from the mountains
to the Ka'bah and gave thanks to Allah.

After this, Quraysh gained great respect and became known as 'the people
of Allah', and the year in which these events took place, 570A.D, was
named the 'Year of the Elephant'. In that year Allah had saved the
Ka'bah and he would soon bring forth a Prophet from among Quraysh. In
the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful: "Hasn't thou not seen
how thy Lord dealt with the owners of the Elephant? Did He not bring
their stratagem to naught, And send against them swarms of flying
creatures, Which pelted them with stones of baked clay, And made them
like green crops devoured (by cattle)? (Koran cv.1-5)
