The Noor of a Believer

Comments Off on The Noor of a Believer

Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1434 Programmes
bismillahh
noorAllah 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 ~ Surah An Noor 24:35.

In Surah Noor, Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala mentions His Manifestation of Noor, which brightens up the skies and earth and extends to all His creation…

According to some Mufassireen, the verse refers to The Noor of a Believer which is bestowed to him by Allah Taala.

It is similar to a niche, in which there is a lantern. The oil used to burn the lantern is from the olive tree (olive oil), on which the sun rays have been shining on perpetually.  This lantern is placed in a very bright, illuminated, crystal clear glass case, throwing out radiant rays of light that brightens up everything surrounding it. This is the “Noor of a Believer”!

In contrast to that, Allah talks about the condition of the disbeliever who’s deeds and actions are devoid of Noor. He looks for Guidance but does not take the path of Guidance. The disbelievers deeds and actions are like a mirage’. When a person travels on a road on a hot day, he sees a reflection of water in the distance. The faster he tries to approach it, the further and further it goes away… Similarly, the disbeliever thinks he is doing good but he does not see the effect of the deeds… In reality they are all disappearing, leaving him in darkness…

Or like the darknesses in the depth of an ocean, with waves upon waves (absolutely dark), to such an extent that one caught in this dark sea is unable to see his own hand even. The disbeliever is trapped in the darkness of his kufr – devoid of Noor…. He has no sense of direction.


May Allah grant us the Noor of Imaan, the Noor of Quraan and Hadeeth and may Allah make us Lanterns that will spread this Noor to the four corners of the Globe….

Ibaad ur Rahmaan ~ The True Slaves of Allah ~ Moulana Naeem Motala SB

IBAADUR.RAHMAAN.BANNER

And the slaves of the Rahman are those who walk on the earth humbly and when the ignorant people speak to them, they reply peacefully, [63] and those who pass the night prostrating and standing before their Lord, [64] and those who say, “Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Jahannam; indeed, its punishment is a persisting affliction. [65] Indeed, evil it is as an abode and a place to dwell in [66] – and those who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor miserly, and it (i.e. their spending) is moderate in between (the two extremes) [67] – and those who do not invoke any other god along with Allah, and do not kill a person whom Allah has given sanctity, except rightfully, nor do they fornicate; and whoever does it, shall face the recompense of his sin, [68] the punishment will be doubled for him and he will remain there disdained, for ever, [69] except the one who repents and believes and does good deeds, then Allah will change the bad deeds of such people into good ones, and Allah is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful. [70] And whoever repents and does righteous deeds turns to Allah truly [71] – and those who do not witness falsehood, and when they pass by the absurd things, Pass by with dignity [72] and those who, when they are reminded of the verses of their Lord, do not fall at them as deaf and blind ones [73] – and those who say, “Our Lord, Give us, from our spouses and our children, coolness of eyes and make us heads of the God-fearing. [74] ~ Surah Furqaan : Verses 63~74
