From Surat Ta-Ha (20) verse 50

{ قَالَ رَبُّنَا ٱلَّذِيۤ أَعْطَىٰ كُلَّ شَيءٍ خَلْقَهُ ثُمَّ هَدَىٰ }
He said: "Our Lord is He Who gave every thing its creation ( form, nature, etc..) and then guided (it)"

" Gave" in the distant past refers to al-Azal ( the Ancient past).

Al-Alusi : The verse (1) refers to genus/species and not only to individuals (2) all species or their templates have been created in the distant past, there is and will be no new species to be "created" de novo.

الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ لَّذِي أَحْسَنَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقَهُ

Baqli: "Not an atom, from the throne to the ground was left without being brought out from the darkness of non-existence through the Light of the Ancient Past (Qidam). Its existence was realized within the confines of Mercy where al-Haqq ( Allah (swt) covered it with the Lights of His Power AND THEN ( Thumma indicates a temporal distance) He bestowed upon it a secret Intellect by which it knows its Maker, wherein He has made it know Him. How could what exists not know who made it? The whole is completely drowned in the oceans of Divinity"
related verse: Surat al-Isra' 17: 44
وَإِن مِّن شيْءٍ إِلاَّ يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدَهِ
