    Assalamo 'Alaikum,

    Shaikh GF Haddad replies to the following question on www.Sunnipath.com

    What Was the First Thing Created?


    Answered by Shaykh Gibril Haddad


    I am a little confused with the different narrations in regards to the beginning of creation. Was the first thing created the Throne, the Pen, or the Nur of the Prophet?



    In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful

    As-Salamu Alaykum,

    The scholars said that the "firstnesses" in the creation of the Pen, the Throne, Water, and the Intellect are relative firstnesses while the absolute firstness in creation belongs to the light of the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace. You will find insha'Allah an extensive documentation of this topic in the file titled "Light of the Full Moon"

    And Allah knows best.
