Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about how Khudai's breath was used to create the heaven and the earth. At the beginning of time, the universe was very dark, for heaven and earth were lying closely together. Then Khudai, Creator of the universe, blew his breath on to them, continuously, for six days and six nights. His breath was so strong that it forced heaven and earth apart, with the former drifting upwards and out of reach, and the latter falling downwards, until the rivers emerged. Thanks to Khudai's breath heaven and earth have been separated and ever since they have been as they still are now.
