This audio CD of the events behind the Chapter of the Elephant of the Glorious Qur’an was chosen for Second Prize in the Islamic Foundation’s 2005 Writing for Children competition.
The greedy and power-hungry vice-regent Abrahah intends to divert the worlds pilgrims from Kaba, the House of Allah, in Makka, to the cathedral his slaves have built for him. But when the cathedrals spires finally slice the brilliant Yemeni skies and the magnificent doors are opened, the throngs Abrahah has been boasting about do not arrive. In a rage, he vows to destroy the Kaba, but Allah, the Causer of all causes, has other plans. True happenings, stranger by far than fiction, demonstrate that if He says, it is, it surely is.
“MashaAllah! My children still listen to your retelling of the Year of the Elephant and love it!” Roxanne Umm Sahla, (KUWAIT)
