(Tabi'at al kull). The Universal Nature which is the Supreme Isthmus. It is synonymous with the Breath of the All Merciful. It is the forever invisible material which allows everything below the world of spirits to become manifest. Nature is the highest and greatest mother, who gives birth to all things.

See also: Breath of the All Merciful
(Nafas ar-Rahman). The Breath of the All Merciful. This exceedingly beautiful term indicates the evanescent nature of existence in its state of constant change and renewal. It is the Supreme Isthmus and the very substance of the universe is the Breath of the All Merciful. In their state of non-existence the entities are contracted and distressed). This Divine Breath brings relief to them by giving them their existence. Allah breathes out, and through His All Merciful Breath He speaks. We, the creation, are His Words. We are the forms and He is the meaning.
