Prophet Muhammad As Light.

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

 The Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was the first of the lights emanating from the Immense Ocean of Divine Being. From this we come to know that he is the primal created light out of which flowed the springs of all created manifestations.


 It is reported by Jabir Ibn Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, that he, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "The first thing that Allah created was my light.." (Bukhari and Muslim).  From that light all other lights came to be, and by it the various levels and degrees of existence became established. The word 'light' is an expression for that meaning which illuminates all things it comes into contact with, material or non-material thing.


Says Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, in the Qur'an: "From Allah has come to you a Light and a Book manifest." (5:15)

Qari 'Iyad, may Allah be Merciful to him, said: "The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was named a Light because of the clarity of his case and the fact that his Prophecy was made manifest, and also because of the illumination of the hearts of the believers and the knowers of Allah with what he brought."
