THIS CHAPTER was revealed after Believers 23 and before The Mount 52. The act of kneeling in worship or prostration is mentioned in II, 15:III, and 41:V. However I do not care for the term 'prostration' that has often been given as a translation for the title since it has neurotic overtones in contemporary English, Islamic worship requires more reverence. This is the last chapter initialed with the letters A.L.M. (these have already appeared in Chapters 2, 3, 29, 30, & 31). It consists of 30 Meccan verses arranged in three sections, except for vv. 16-20 in section II which date from Madina. Creation and man are the initial themes heard in section I. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! (I)
