188 The Letters B And E Were Joined And Knit Together #177
Shoghi Effendi, in letters written on his behalf, has explained the
significance of the letters B and E. They constitute the word Be,
which, he states, means the creative Power of God Who through His command
causes all things to come into being and the power of the Manifestation
of God, His great spiritual creative force.
The imperative Be in the original Arabic is the word kun, consisting
of the two letters kaf and nun. They have been translated by Shoghi
Effendi in the above manner. This word has been used in the Qur'an as
God's bidding calling creation into being.
