In the beginning, greatest of all, Allah parted the seas and created the land that was to be the Earth. Allah created the bounty of life upon the lands and in the oceans and still thirsted for more. Allah created fire and contained it and channeled it and saw it do his bidding, clearing the earth and burning the seas. Finally, Allah took it upon himself to create life. First he willed the light into subservience and created Angels. Then Allah breathed into the fires of creation and created the Jin. Finally, Allah breathed into the Earth, and created man, whom he adored above all others.
