Based on Surah Al-Fil.
The greedy and power-hungry vice-regent Abrahah intends to divert the world's pilgrims from Ka'ba, the House of Allah, in Makka, to the cathedral his slaves have built for him. But when the cathedral's 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 Ka'ba, but Allah, theCauser of all causes, has other plans. True happenings, stranger by far than fiction, demonstrate that if He says, "Be!" it is, it surely is.
