Kun Fayakun comes from Arabic words “Kun(كن)” which means “to be” or “to exist” and “fayakun (فيكون)” which means “it is”. So its literal meaning is “Be, and it is”.
There was nothing before,
there will be nothingness after.
Nothing do I have,
likely nothing will I gain.
Still, the heart persists in the hope
that my mannat* will manifest
and things will Be.
