Kun Fayakoon is certainly on.

51:47 And it is We Who built the Universe with power, and certainly, it is We Who are steadily expanding it. [Samaa = Sky = Heaven = Allegorically the Universe. Bi-Ayidin = With both hands = With power. The expansion of the Universe was first proposed by the Belgian cosmologist Georges Lemaitre and the Russian scientist A. Friemann. In 1929, it was observed for the first time by the American astronomer Edwin Hubble. (78 Km/Sec in 2012). The Qur’an had given us this knowledge 14 centuries ago! 55:5, 36:38-40]

10:7 Those who do not look forward to meeting with Us, but exclusively desire the life of this world and feel contented herein, and those who are neglectful of Our Messages, [Meeting with Us = Liqa-anaa. At other places ‘Meeting with the Lord’ is generally understood as meeting the Divine Law of Requital or Recompense. Some exponents apply ‘Meeting with the Lord’ to Resurrection alone. In my humble opinion, since God is a Personal, Compassionate God, and a vast majority of His humble servants harbor an intense desire to see Him, He would not deny this kindness to them. We know that God is far too Glorious to have a physical image (anthropomorphic form), but He is Able to do all things. In the World of Command (AMR), He designs Laws as He wills. It is in the World of Creation (KHALQ) that He implements those Laws, and then, never changes them. So, He is absolutely Capable of devising any Laws in His World of Command. I find myself in agreement with numerous Ahadith narrating that humans should be able to meet their Creator in the Next Life, not as a wishful thinking, but because they are in agreement with the Qur’an. I do not certainly mean God assuming a physical form for 'meeting' with His servants, but in some way that is beyond our understanding at this time. Let us ponder some verses as well that allude to a new creation of humans in forms unknown to us at this time, and entirely new Laws becoming operative in the New Universe: … 56:59 Is it you who create it or are We the Creator? … 56:60 We have decreed death (designed the laws of death) among you. And there is nothing to prevent Us 56:61 from changing your forms and making you in a manner, and in an environment, that is (as yet) unknown to you. … 11:106 Those who, by their deeds, brought misery on themselves will be in the fire, sighing and wailing will be their portion. … 11:107 Therein to abide, as long as the (New) Universe endures; that is time beyond count, unless your Lord decrees otherwise. Your Lord is Doer of what He wills in the World of Command. … The current Universe will be dismantled for a new Universe. 14:19, 14:48, 21:104, 25:22, 35:16, 36:81, 50:44, 69:16, 70:9) … 'Meeting with the Lord' is mentioned in the Qur’an about a hundred times. Even the great Allama Mashriqi ventures into the area, although I humbly disagree with him. He thinks that with evolution, humans will lose their body and only the 'spirit' will remain. And this spirit will merge with the 'Spirit' of God. And that is the 'Meeting with the Lord'! (Ref: Tazkarah, Hadith-il-Qur’an). Now this concept exactly matches the Sufi parlance but it is totally unacceptable to a student of the Qur’an. Finally, 2:55 points out that only the disbelievers demand to see God in physical form, but that verse relates only to the life of this world]
