With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 24 (The Light)

The Quran guides from darkness towards  light

Verse 35 :”Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The Parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche and within it a Lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: Lit from a blessed Tree, an Olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He will to His Light: Allah doth set forth Parables for men: and Allah doth know all things.”

This is a beautifull parable that compares  Allah’s Revelation to Light – towards which He guides everyone who seeks His guidance.

4:174: O mankind! verily there hath come to you a convincing proof from your Lord: For We have sent unto you a light (that is) manifest.
5:16 Wherewith Allah guideth all who seek His good pleasure to ways of peace and safety, and leadeth them out of darkness, by His will, unto the light,- guideth them to a path that is straight.

By ignoring this light (WAHI) we can see  the dreadful consequences in almost all parts of the Muslim world today 2:257…..Of those who reject faith the patrons are the evil ones: from light they will lead them forth into the depths of darkness. They will be companions of the fire, to dwell therein (For ever).
