* تفسير Tafsir al-Tustari

{ أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضَ بِٱلْحقِّ إِن يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ وَيَأْتِ بِخَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ }

Have you not seen that God created the heavens and Earth in truth?...He [Sahl] said:He created all things through His omnipotence (qudra), adorned them through His knowledge (ʿilm), and governed them through His wisdom (ḥikma). Thus, to the one who contemplates the Creator through the creation, the wonders of the creation will become apparent. But to the one who contemplates the creation through the Creator, the traces of His omnipotence, the lights of His wisdom and the extent and profundity (balīgh) of His workmanship (ṣanʿa) will be unveiled.His words, Exalted is He:
