'alam al-mulk
World of Matter

('Alam al mulk). The World of matter is the Kingdom of outwardness. The Realm of event. The macrocosm.

See also: Kingdom of Allah
(Al Mulk). This is the phenomenal world, the macrocosm. Allah's kingdom is the possible things, the entities. We are His kingdom and through us He is King. This kingdom is the place of manifestation of the Divine Names. A Master said, 'I have no morning and no evening'. Morning pertains to manifestation, the world of the kingdom (Al Mulk) and the visible. Evening belongs to non-manifestation, the world of dominion (Al Malakut) and the Unseen. This Great Master was in the station of 'no station'.
