THIS INITIAL or prefatory chapter is made up of seven verses from the period which the Prophet passed in Mecca. It was revealed after The Man Wearing a Cloak 74 and before The Flame I I I. The chapter has classical expression, and is "simple in wording but full of meaning," which eventually works into our consciousness as we repeat it daily. This is the customary invocation used in Islamic ceremonies of all kinds, and it forms a true prayer, occupying somewhat the same place in Islam as the Lord's prayer does with Christians. The chapter is often said to contain the "essence' of the Quran, and in 15:vI it is called the "Seven Oft Repeated Verses." This chapter should be read attentively since many Islamlic terms are introduced here and are repeated daily by every Muslim. It also bears witness to God's presence everywhere. PART ONE
