هُوَ الَّذِي يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ ۖ فَإِذَا قَضَىٰ أَمْرًا فَإِنَّمَا يَقُولُ لَهُ كُنْ فَيَكُونُ

Asad : It is He who grants life and deals death; and when He wills a thing to be, He but says unto it, "Be" - and it is.
Malik : It is He Who gives you life and causes you to die. It is He Who when He decides to do something, needs only to say: "Be," and it is.
Mustafa Khattab :

He is the One Who gives life and causes death. When He decrees a matter, He simply tells it, “Be!” And it is!

Pickthall : He it is who quickeneth and giveth death. When He ordaineth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is.

Yusuf Ali

Yusuf Ali 4445 The keys of life and death are in Allah's hands. But He is not dependent on time or place or instruments or materials. All that He has to do is to say "Be", and it comes into existence. Cf. xvi. 40, and n. 2066; xxxvi. 82, and n. 4029. Conversely, His Will or Command is sufficient to annihilate Existence into Non-Existence (Life into Death) or determine the limits or conditions of Existence or Non-Existence.
