هُوَ ٱلَّذِى يُحۡىِۦ وَيُمِيتُ ۖ فَإِذَا قَضَىٰٓ أَمۡرًا فَإِنَّمَا يَقُولُ لَهُۥ كُن فَيَكُونُ
It is He Who gives Life and Death; and when He decides upon an affair, He says to it, "Be", and it is.<br/>
He it is Who gives life and brings death. So when He decides upon a matter, [when] He wants to bring something into existence, He only says to it 'Be!' and it is (read fa-yakoonu, or fa-yakoona [in the subjunctive] on account of an implied [preceding] an). In other words, it comes into existence after He has willed it, that which is signified by the said words.
