As we already explained, Ibn ‘Arabî showed that the creation of the world by Allah is a ‘series’ process. That is, He creates only one event at a time (or indeed in each Day), as Allah says: each Day He is upon some (one) task (55:29). Yet we observe multitudes of different events happening apparently at once. According to Ibn ‘Arabî, the way to understand this apparent paradox is to correct our view of the flow of time.
