Concerning the religious view of how the universe came into existance, below are quotes from the last of the Abrahamic faiths' Scriptures, the Glorious Quran. God says:
2:117: "The Originator is He of the heavens and the earth: and when He wills a thing to be, He but says unto it, 'Be' – and it is."
19:67: "But does man not bear in mind that We have created him aforetime out of nothing?"
21:30: "Are, then, they who are bent on denying the truth not aware that the heavens and the earth were [once] one single entity, which We then parted asunder? – and [that] We made out of water every living thing? Will they not, then, believe?"
21:56: "He answered: 'Nay, but your [true] Sustainer is the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth – He who has brought them into being: and I am one of those who bear witness to this [truth]!'"
35:1: "ALL PRAISE is due to God, Originator of the heavens and the earth, who causes the angels to be (His) message-bearers, endowed with wings, two, or three, or four. He adds to His creation whatever He wills: for, verily, God has the power to will anything."
51:47: "It is We who have built the universe with (Our creative) power; and, verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it."
