Allah Most High said: “Hast 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?” (105:1-5).

This is a great proof mentioned by the late admonisher of the Umma, Shaykh `Abd al-Hamid Kishk of Egypt.

He said that it is established that the Prophet (SAWS) was born in the year of the Elephant; therefore, in addition to being a perpetual reminder of the protection of Allah Most High for His House from Abraha in the time of `Abd al-Muttalib, this Sura also indicates that the Prophet (SAWS) and everything connected with him shall not be resisted but shall conquer, even if “camels” are usually overcome by “elephants” and even with very small means – outwardly – such as the birds’ pelting-stones, which were the size of lentils.

Similarly, Allah Most High has prepared, in His factories, nuclear-like devices of unimaginable destructive power for the enemies of the Prophet (SAWS) in our time and their elephantine armies, who have no idea of what they are challenging.



Allah Most High said: “Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O ye who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation” (33:56).

This is an explicit proof for Mawlid as its main activity is the sending of blessings and salutations on the Best of creation (SAWS) and his Family.
