In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Allāh says in the 3rd chapter of His Book, quoting the noble Prophet ʿĪsā ibn Maryam, ʿalayhi al-Salām, "I will create for you (akhluqu lakum) something that is the shape of a bird from clay and then I will breathe into it, and it will become a real  bird by the Permission of Allāh." What is the meaning of this creation? How should the Muslim properly understand this creation? How does this creation differ from the Creation of Allāh, al-Khāliq, al-Muṣawwir? Listen to the following short but informative audio clip about the attribute of creation. May Allāh have mercy upon you and grant you success in this life and the Hereafter.
