Wikipedia writes:

The Kalām cosmological argument is a variation of the cosmological argument that argues for the existence of a first cause for the universe, and the existence of a god. Its origins can be traced to medieval Jewish, Christian and Muslim thinkers, but most directly to Islamic theologians of the Kalām tradition.1 Its historic proponents include John Philoponus,[2] Al-Kindi,[3] Saadia Gaon,[4] Al-Ghazali,[5] and St. Bonaventure.[6] William Lane Craig revived interest in the Kalām cosmological argument with his 1979 publication of a book of the same name.[7][8]

The Kalam Cosmological Argument is this (simply): Everything that has a beginning of existence has a cause of existence. The universe has a beginning of existence. Therefore the universe has a cause of existence.

Wikipedia tells me that Rav Saadia wrote this argument. Can anyone tell me where it is in the Hebrew version?

The page numberings there correspond to Treatise 1 ("Concerning the belief that all existing things have been created"), Chapter 1, toward the beginning. If that's not enough information, what Hebrew edition are you working with?
