The Shaykh said:
A question was posed by a good, knowledgeable friend of mine, who brought it to attention that; the term kun (Be!) in Arabic is the formula for matters/affairs. So when, nothing else existed apart from Allah’s Being, to what was kun said - and how was the universe created?
In actual fact, when nothing existed and Allah said kun, it was to that which Allah had in His Thought (khyaal); He brought it close, and commanded kun (Be!)
And that much is enough.
