THIS CHAPTER of 30 Meccan verses was revealed after he Mount 52 and before Reality 69. The next two Parts of the Qur)in (xxix and xxx) are Meccan again, except for the short chapter called [Divine] Support 110, and they comprise two-score lyric gems. The present chapter gives us a picture of how the Universe was formed, as well as another of the final Blaze which will mark the end of the world (I). The title Al-Mulk gives some difficulty in translation from the Arabic. In a so-called republican or pseudo-democratic age, I prefer the word 'control' instead of monarchical terms such as 'dominion' or 'sovereignty, since control here refers to the ultimate power of the Divinity, while actual political power was being slowly forged in Arabia through a confederation of Arab tribes, the Islamic commonwealth or Umma which the Prophet tried to achieve. 'Control' also gives us an easier verb form to use. God is here addressed as the Mercy-giving or ar-Rahman. PART TWENTY-NINE In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! Cosmogony (or Creation) (i)
