When we deliberate upon the creation of the universe in the light of the teachings of the holy books it comes to our knowledge that we are creatures and God is our Creator. When the Creator Willed He fashioned the universe by commanding it to ‘Be’. The question is that why the Creator Willed so and that what He willed did already exist or not. If the Will of the Creator existed where did it exist and why did He create the universe? The Creator Himself tells us about it, “I was a Hidden Treasure, I created the creatures with Love, so that I be Recognized”.
The Creator also tells us about as and how of the existence of the creatures. “I created the creatures upon my Attributes”. This is a well known fact that a ‘being’ cannot be separated from the attributes. The attributes remain present in the being and the being is recognized and known by its attributes; the qualities and characteristics.
