From the collection ‘Shaykh ul Aalam’s Advice for the Seeker’
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 near, and commanded kun (Be!)
And that much is enough.
