Pearl of Wisdom
The Originator of all things from their conception, and their Inventor from the very beginning with His Power and Wisdom, [He creates] not from anything otherwise the very concept of invention would be nullified, nor for any cause otherwise the very concept of origination would be inapplicable. He creates whatever He pleases however He pleases.'
Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha [as]
Ibid. p. 98, no. 5
