Ayah

فَبَعَثَ ٱللَّهُ غُرَابًا يَبۡحَثُ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ لِيُرِيَهُۥ كَيۡفَ يُوَٰرِى سَوۡءَةَ أَخِيهِ ۚ قَالَ يَٰوَيۡلَتَىٰٓ أَعَجَزۡتُ أَنۡ أَكُونَ مِثۡلَ هَٰذَا ٱلۡغُرَابِ فَأُوَٰرِىَ سَوۡءَةَ أَخِى ۖ فَأَصۡبَحَ مِنَ ٱلنَّٰدِمِينَ

Translation

Then Allah sent a raven, who scratched the ground, to show him how to hide the shame of his brother. "Woe is me!" said he; "Was I not even able to be as this raven, and to hide the shame of my brother?" then he became full of regrets-<br/>

Tafsir

Then God sent forth a raven, scratching into the earth, digging up the soil with its beak and with its legs and throwing it up over a dead raven next to it until it completely hid it, to show him how he might hide the nakedness, the carcass, of his brother. He said, 'Woe to me! Am I not able to be as this raven, and so hide my brother's nakedness?' And he became one of the remorseful, for having carried him; he then dug [a hole] for him and covered him up.
