Beautifully illustrated true story from a chapter of the Holy Quran.
The greedy and power-hungry king Abrahah intends to divert the world's pilgrims from the Ka'ba, the House of Allah in Makkah, to the cathedral his slaves have built for him. But when the cathedral's spires finally slice through the brilliant Yemeni skies and its 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, the Causer of all causes, has other plans. True happenings, stranger by far than fiction, demonstrate that if He says, "Be!" be it surely is.
