The Shaykh said:
A question was posed by a good, knowledgeable friend of mine, who brought it to attention that; the term kun in Arabic is the formula for matters/affairs. So when, apart from Allah’s Being, there existed nothing else, 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.
