Prophet Muhammad Salla lahu alahi wa sallam was a human ,pious people shine,hence many times he used to shine.His daughter Zainab r.a also used to shine,when Isa alai salaam was born he too shined like light.All muslims are supposed to pray for light,by saying “grant me light “etc.
Allah Created Adam In His Own Image
The Book of Virtue, Good Manners and Joining of the Ties of Relationship (Kitab Al-Birr was-Salat-I-wa'l-Adab) Muslim :: Book 32 : Hadith 6325
This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Abu Huraira and in the hadith transmitted on the authority of Ibn Hatim Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) is reported to have said: When any one of you fights with his brother, he should avoid his face for Allah created Adam in His own image.
*Note:Allah is light,without questioning “its meaning”.He Created Adam in his own image.
Prophets Are Humans
“Before thee, also, the messengers We sent were but men, to whom We granted inspiration: If ye realize this not, ask of those who possess the Message. Nor did We give them bodies that ate no food, nor were they exempt from death.” [21:7-8]
25: 7. And they say: "Why does this Messenger (Muhammad SAW) eat food, and walk about in the markets (like ourselves). Why is not an angel sent down to him to be a warner with him?
[18:110 and 41:06] Say (O' Muhammad): "I am only a man like yourselves; it is revealed to me that your god is one Allah, therefore whoever hopes to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds, and not join any one in the service of his Lord.”
”[Ibraaheem 14:11] “Their Messengers said to them: We are no more than human beings like you
[06:50] Say: I do not say to you, I have with me the treasures of Allah, nor do I know the unseen, nor do I say to you that I am an angel; I do not follow aught save that which is revealed to me. Say: Are the blind and the seeing one alike? Do you not then reflect?
. [12:109] & [16:43]And We have not sent before you but men (as messengers) from (among) the people of the towns, to whom We sent revelations
[21:34] And We granted not to any human being immortality before you (O' Muhammad), then if you die, would they live forever?
Prophets Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 55 :: Hadith 654 Narrated 'Umar:
I heard the Prophet saying, "Do not exaggerate in praising me as the Christians praised the son of Mary, for I am only a Slave. So, call me the Slave of Allah and His Apostle."
Humans Are Created From Clay
15:28. And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "I am going to create a man (Adam) from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud.
55:14. He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the clay of pottery.
76:76. [Iblîs (Satan)] said: "I am better than he, You created me from fire, and You created him from clay."
37:11. Then ask them (i.e. these polytheists, O Muhammad SAW): "Are they stronger as creation, or those (others like the heavens and the earth and the mountains, etc.) whom We have created?" Verily, We created them of a sticky clay.
7:7. Who made everything He has created good, and He began the creation of man from clay.
61:1. And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate unto Adam." They prostrated except Iblîs (Satan). He said: "Shall I prostrate to one whom You created from clay?"
[Sahih Muslim: Book 42, Number 7134]
A'isha reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Angels were born out of light and the Jinns were born out of the spark of fire and Adam was born as he has been defined (in the Qur'an) for you (i. e. he is fashioned out of clay).”
Angels Are Created From Light
The Book Pertaining to Piety and Softening of Hearts (Kitab Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqa'iq)
Muslim :: Book 42 : Hadith 7134
'A'isha reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Angels were born out of light and the Jinns were born out of the spark of fire and Adam was born as he has been defined (in the Qur'an) for you (i. e. he is fashioned out of clay).
Angels Can Take The Shape Of Man When Allah Commands Them To
"And verily Allah has informed us that the Angels came to Hadrat Ebrahim (alaihis salaam) in the form of human and the angels appeared before Hadrat Maryam (alaiha salaam) in the exact human form and Hadrat Jibraeel (alaihis salaam) used to come before the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in the form of Hadrat Wahia kalbi and in the form of a villager and the people used to always see him this way." (Al Furqan bainal Awliyah ur Rahman wa shaitaan, page 41)
11:69. And verily, there came Our Messengers to Ibrahîm (Abraham) with glad tidings.They said: Salâm (greetings or peace!) He answered, Salâm (greetings or peace!) and he hastened to entertain them with a roasted calf.
"Once we were in the presence of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). A man came to us. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked Hadrat Umr Farouk (radi Allahu anhu), "Do you know who that person was? Hadrat Umar Farouk (Radi Allahu anhu) said, "Almighty Allah and His beloved Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) know better." The Prophet (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, "That is Jibraeel (Alaihis Salaam)." (Mishkaat - ul - Masabih - Bukhari Shareef)
Every Human Shall Taste Death
3:185. Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).
4:69. And whoso obeys Allâh and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), then they will be in the company of those on whom Allâh has bestowed His Grace, of the Prophets, the Siddiqûn (those followers of the Prophets who were first and foremost to believe in them, like Abu Bakr AsSiddiq ÑÖì <> <>), the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are!
I Am A Human Being & The Book Of Allah In Which There Is Right Guidance And Light,
Muslim :: Book 31 : Hadith 5920
Yazid b. Hayyan reported, I went along with Husain b. Sabra and 'Umar b. Muslim to Zaid b. Arqam and, as we sat by his side, Husain said to him: Zaid. you have been able to acquire a great virtue that you saw Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) listened to his talk, fought by his side in (different) battles, offered prayer behind me. Zaid, you have in fact earned a great virtue. Zaid, narrate to us what you heard from Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him). He said: I have grown old and have almost spent my age and I have forgotten some of the things which I remembered in connection with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him), so accept whatever I narrate to you, and which I do not narrate do not compel me to do that. He then said: One day Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) stood up to deliver sermon at a watering place known as Khumm situated between Mecca and Medina. He praised Allah, extolled Him and delivered the sermon and. exhorted (us) and said: Now to our purpose. O people, I am a human being. I am about to receive a messenger (the angel of death) from my Lord and I, in response to Allah's call, (would bid good-bye to you), but I am leaving among you two weighty things: the one being the Book of Allah in which there is right guidance and light, so hold fast to the Book of Allah and adhere to it. He exhorted (us) (to hold fast) to the Book of Allah and then said: The second are the members of my household I remind you (of your duties) to the members of my family. He (Husain) said to Zaid: Who are the members of his household? Aren't his wives the members of his family? Thereupon he said: His wives are the members of his family (but here) the members of his family are those for whom acceptance of Zakat is forbidden. And he said: Who are they? Thereupon he said: 'Ali and the offspring of 'Ali, 'Aqil and the offspring of 'Aqil and the offspring of Ja'far and the offspring of 'Abbas. Husain said: These are those for whom the acceptance of Zakat is forbidden. Zaid said: Yes.
Prophet Is Dead
Judgments (Ahkaam) Bukhari :: Book 9 :: Volume 89 :: Hadith 326 Narrated Anas bin Malik:
That he heard 'Umar's second speech he delivered when he sat on the pulpit on the day following the death of the Prophet 'Umar recited the Tashahhud while Abu Bakr was silent. 'Umar said, "I wish that Allah's Apostle had outlived all of us, i.e., had been the last (to die). But if Muhammad is dead, Allah nevertheless has kept the light amongst you from which you can receive the same guidance as Allah guided Muhammad with that. And Abu Bakr is the companion of Allah's Apostle He is the second of the two in the cave. He is the most entitled person among the Muslims to manage your affairs. Therefore get up and swear allegiance to him." Some people had already taken the oath of allegiance to him in the shed of Bani Sa'ida but the oath of allegiance taken by the public was taken at the pulpit. I heard 'Umar saying to Abu Bakr on that day. "Please ascend the pulpit," and kept on urging him till he ascended the pulpit whereupon, all the people swore allegiance to him.
*Note: Allah subhanawatala has kept the light amongst you from which you can receive the same guidance as Allah guided Muhammad with that.
Martyrs After Death Are Alive But We Perceive It Not
2: 154. And say not of those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, "They are dead." Nay, they are living, but you perceive (it) not.
*Note:Humans do not perceive it,as to how they are alive .And Prophets are alive in their graves.
The Position Of Prophet Muhammad Is Highest
Deem not the summons of the Messenger among yourselves like the summons of one of you to another: Allah doth know those of you who slip away under shelter of some excuse: then let those beware who withstand the Messenger's order, lest some trial befall them, or a grievous penalty be inflicted on them(24:63)
*Note:Give him respect,attention and obey him.
Prophet Muhammad Is A Human Like All & Liable to Forget
Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 394: Narrated 'Abdullah:
The Prophet prayed (and the subnarrator Ibrahim said, "I do not know whether he prayed more or less than usual"), and when he had finished the prayers he was asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Has there been any change in the prayers?" He said, "What is it?' The people said, "You have prayed so much and so much." So the Prophet bent his legs, faced the Qibla and performed two prostrations (of Sahu) and finished his prayers with Tasiim (by turning his face to right and left saying: 'As-Salamu'Alaikum-Warahmat-ullah'). When he turned his face to us he said, "If there had been anything changed in the prayer, surely I would have informed you but I am a human being like you and liable to forget like you. So if I forget remind me and if anyone of you is doubtful about his prayer, he should follow what he thinks to be correct and complete his prayer accordingly and finish it and do two prostrations (of Sahu)."
Prophet Muhammad Is Only Human Being
Volume 3, Book 43, Number 638: Narrated Um Salama:
(the wife of the Prophet) Allah's Apostle heard some people quarreling at the door of his dwelling. He came out and said, "I am only a human being, and opponents come to me (to settle their problems); maybe someone amongst you can present his case more eloquently than the other, whereby I may consider him true and give a verdict in his favor. So, If I give the right of a Muslim to another by mistake, then it is really a portion of (Hell) Fire, he has the option to take or give up (before the Day of Resurrection)." (See Hadith No. 097. Vol. 9)

*Note: Prophet Muhammad Is Only Human Being.He Never Said He Is Light
Keep It In Mind That I Am A Human Being
Sahih Muslim: Book 30, Number 5831]
“I am a human being, so when I command you about a thing pertaining to religion, do accept it, and when I command you about a thing out of my personal opinion, keep it in mind that I am a human being.”
Book 030, Hadith Number 5831.
: It is obligatory to follow the Prophet (may peace be upon him) in all matters pertaining to religion, but one is free to act on one's own opinion in matters which pertain to technical skill.
Rafi' b. Khadij reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) came to Medina and the people had been grafting the trees. He said: What are you doing? They said: We are grafting them, whereupon he said: It may perhaps be good for you if you do not do that, so they abandoned this practice (and the date-palms) began to yield less fruit. They made a mention of it (to the Holy Prophet), whereupon he said: I am a human being, so when I command you about a thing pertaining to religion, do accept it, and when I command you about a thing out of my personal opinion, keep it in mind that I am a human being. 'Ikrima reported that he said something like this.
Book 030, Hadith Number 5832.
It is obligatory to follow the Prophet (may peace be upon him) in all matters pertaining to religion, but one is free to act on one's own opinion in matters which pertain to technical skill.
Anas reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) happened to pass by the people who had been busy in grafting the trees. Thereupon he said: If you were not to do it, it might be good for you. (So they abandoned this practice) and there was a decline in the yield. He (the Holy Prophet) happened to pass by them (and said): What has gone wrong with your trees? They said: You said so and so. Thereupon he said: You have better knowledge (of a technical skill) in the affairs of the world.
53:3,4Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire,It is no less than inspiration sent down to him
*Note:The above verse is for revelation Prophet Muhammad salla lahu alaihi wa sallam conveyed.
Prophet Muhammad Had Other Tasks
Book 006, Number 2427: (Sahih Muslim)
Ibn 'Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) abserved fasts uninterruptedly in Ramadan and the people (in his wake) did this. But he forbade them to do so. It was said to him (to the Holy Prophet): You yourself observe the fasts uninterruptedly (but you forbid us to do so) Upon this he said: I am not like you; I am fed and supplied drink (by Allah).
Volume 9, Book 90, Number 347: (Sahi Bukhari)Narrated Anas:
The Prophet fasted Al-Wisal on the last days of the month. Some people did the same, and when the news reached the Prophet he said, "If the month had been prolonged for me, then I would have fasted Wisal for such a long time that the most exaggerating ones among you would have given up their exaggeration. I am not like you; my Lord always makes me eat and drink."
*Note:Because he was a Prophet ,he had tasks,he was commanded to fast uninterruptedly,he was also commanded to pray night prayers regularly.
Allah Informs Him Of Unseen As Much As He Likes
72:26. "(He Alone) the All-Knower of the Ghâ'ib (unseen), and He reveals to none His Ghâ'ib (unseen)."
27. Except to a Messenger (from mankind) whom He has chosen (He informs him of unseen as much as He likes), and then He makes a band of watching guards (angels) to march before him and behind him.
The Book of Prayers (Kitab Al-Salat) Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 857
Anas reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) one day led us in the prayer. and when he completed the Prayer he turned his face towards us and said: 0 People, I am your Imam, so do not precede me in bowing and prostration and in standing and turning (faces, i. e. In pronouncing salutation), for I see you in front of me and behind me, and then said: By Him in Whose hand Is the life of Muhammad, if you could see what I see, you would have laughed little and wept much more. They said: What did you see, Messenger of Allah? He replied: (I saw) Paradise and Hell.
*Note:Prophet Muhamad salla lahu alaihi wa sallam was given certain amount of knowledge of unseen.Not complete knowledge to unseen ,because he said he is liable to forget .If one has complete knowledge of unseen then how can anyone forget.
As A Lamp That Giveth Light
33:45 O Prophet! Lo! We have sent thee as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner
46 And as a summoner unto Allah by His permission, and as a lamp that giveth light.
*Note:"- the verse says as a lamp which gives light,not a lamp which gives light." Transliteration Wa da_iyan ilal la_hi bi iznihi wa sira_jam munira_.The verse also says “as a lamp/siraj that gives light[Munir/nur/noor].He is “as a siraj” and gives light[munir] of guidance, he is taken in the verse “as a siraj/lamp]
Tafsir Ibn Kathir on 33:45-(And as one who invites to Allah by His leave,) means, `you call mankind to worship their Lord because He has commanded you to do so. '
(and as a lamp spreading light.) means, `the Message that you bring is as clear as the sun shining brightly, and no one can deny it except those who are stubborn.'
“O Prophet! Indeed We sent you as a witness, against those to whom you have were sent, and as a bearer of good tidings, for those who affirm your sincerity, of Paradise, and as a warner, for those who deny you, of the [punishment of the] Fire,
And as a summoner to God, to obedience to Him, by His leave, by His command, and as a illuminating lamp, in other words, the equivalent of it, in terms of one’s being able to find guidance therewith”
Tanwir al-Miqbas min Tafsir ibn Abbas
“(O Prophet!) He means Muhammad (pbuh) (Lo! We have sent thee as a witness) that you have conveyed the message to your nation (and a bringer of good tidings) i.e. Paradise to whoever believes in Allah (and a Warner) against the Fire for those who disbelieve in Him.
(And as a summoner unto Allah) unto the religion and obedience of Allah (by His permission) by His command, (and as a lamp that giveth light) and taken as an example to follow”
As-Suyuti (rah) says: “a illuminating lamp” as in, “being able to find GUIDANCE therewith”
Ibn Abbas (ra) says: “and as a lamp that giveth light” as in, “taken as an EXAMPLE to follow”.. And following the example of the Prophet (saw) is following his GUIDANCE!!
“(Allah guideth unto His light) Allah honours with knowledge; it is also said that this means: Allah honours with His religion (whom He will) whoever deserves it”
Allah Is The Light Of Guidance
24:35 Allâh 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 is in glass, the glass as it were a brilliant star, lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east (i.e. neither it gets sun-rays only in the morning) nor of the west (i.e. nor it gets sun-rays only in the afternoon, but it is exposed to the sun all day long), whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself), though no fire touched it. Light upon Light! Allâh guides to His Light whom He wills. And Allâh sets forth parables for mankind, and Allâh is All-Knower of everything.
Tafsir Ibn Kathir on the Above verse
The Parable of the Light of Allah
`Ali bin Abi Talhah reported that Ibn `Abbas said:
(Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.) means, the Guide of the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth. Ibn Jurayj said: "Mujahid and
Ibn `Abbas said concerning the Ayah:(Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.) He is controlling their affairs and their stars and sun and moon.'' As-Suddi said concerning the Ayah:(Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.) by His Light the heavens and earth are illuminated. In the Two Sahihs, it is recorded that Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said: "When the Messenger of Allah got up to pray at night, he would say:
(O Allah, to You be praise, You are the Sustainer of heaven and earth and whoever is in them. To You be praise, You are the Light of the heavens
and the earth and whoever is in them. ) It was narrated that Ibn Mas`ud said, "There is no night or day with your Lord; the Light of the Throne
comes from the Light of His Face.''
(The parable of His Light) There are two views concerning the meaning of the pronoun (His). The first is that it refers to Allah, may He be glorified
and exalted, meaning that the parable of His guidance in the heart of the believer is(as a niche) This was the view of Ibn `Abbas. The second view is that the pronoun refers to the believer, which is indicated by the context of the words and implies that the parable of the light in the heart of the believer is as a niche. So the heart of the believer and what he is naturally inclined to of guidance and what he learns of the Qur'an which is in accordance with his natural inclinations are, as Allah says:(Can they who rely on a clear proof from their Lord, and whom a witness from Him recites it (can they be equal with the disbelievers)) 11:17.
The heart of the believer in its purity and clarity is likened to a lamp in transparent and jewel-like glass, and the Qur'an and Shari`ah by which it is
guided are likened to good, pure, shining oil in which there is no impurity or deviation.
(as (if there were) a niche) Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid, Muhammad bin Ka`b and others said, "This refers to the position of the wick in the lamp.'' This is
well-known, and hence Allah then says:(and within it a lamp.) This is the flame that burns brightly. Or it was said that the niche is a niche in the house. This is the parable given by Allah of obedience towards Him. Allah calls obedience to Him as light, then He calls it by other numerous names as well. Ubayy bin Ka`b said, "The lamp is the light, and this refers to the Qur'an and the faith that is in his heart.'' As-Suddi said, "It is the lamp.''
(the lamp is in a glass,) means, this light is shining in a clear glass. Ubayy bin Ka`b and others said, "This is the likeness of the heart of the
believer.''(the glass as it were a star Durriyyun,) Some authorities recite the word Durriyyun with a Dammah on the Dal and without a Hamzah, which
means pearls, i.e., as if it were a star made of pearls (Durr). Others recite it as Dirri'un or Durri'un, with a Kasrah on the Dal, or Dammah on the
Dal, and with a Hamzah at the end, which means reflection (Dir'), because if something is shone on the star it becomes brighter than at any other
time. The Arabs call the stars they do not know Darari. Ubayy bin Ka`b said: a shining star. Qatadah said: "Huge, bright and clear.''
(lit from a blessed tree,) means, it is derived from olive oil, from a blessed tree.
(an olive,) This refers to the blessed tree mentioned previously.
(neither of the east nor of the west,) means, it is not in the eastern part of the land so that it does not get any sun in the first part of the day, nor is it
in the western part of the land so that it is shaded from the sun before sunset, but it is in a central position where it gets sun from the beginning of
the day until the end, so its oil is good and pure and shining. Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Ibn `Abbas commented on:
(an olive, neither of the east nor of the west,) "This is a tree in the desert which is not shaded by any other tree or mountain or cave, nothing
covers it, and this is best for its oil.'' Mujahid commented on:
(neither of the east nor of the west, ) saying; "It is not in the east where it will get no sun when the sun sets, nor is it in the west where it will get no
sun when the sun rises, but it is in a position where it will get sun both at sunrise and sunset.'' Sa`id bin Jubayr commented:
(an olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself)) "This is the best kind of oil. When the sun rises it reaches
the tree from the east and when it sets it reaches it from the west, so the sun reaches it morning and evening, so it is not counted as being in the
east or in the west.''(whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself), though no fire touched it.) `Abdur-Rahman bin Zayd bin Aslam said (this means) because the oil itself is shining.
(Light upon Light!) Al-`Awfi narrated from Ibn `Abbas that this meant the faith and deeds of a person. As-Suddi said:(Light upon Light!) "Light of the fire and the light of the oil: when they are combined they give light, and neither of them can give light without the other. Similarly the light of the Qur'an and the light of faith give light when they are combined, and neither can do so without the other.''(Allah guides to His Light whom He wills.) means, Allah shows the way to the ones whom He chooses, as it says in the Hadith recorded by Imam Ahmad from `Abdullah bin `Amr, who said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah say:
(Allah created His creation in darkness, then on the same day He sent His Light upon them. Whoever was touched by His Light on that day will be
guided and whoever was missed will be led astray. Hence I say: the pens have dried in accordance with the knowledge of Allah, may He be
(And Allah sets forth parables for mankind, and Allah is All-Knower of everything.) Having mentioned this parable of the Light of His guidance in
the heart of the believer, Allah ends this Ayah with the words:(And Allah sets forth parables for mankind, and Allah is All-Knower of everything.) meaning, He knows best who deserves to be guided and who deserves to be led astray. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri said, "The Messenger of Allah said:(Hearts are of four kinds: the heart that is clear like a shining lamp; the heart that is covered and tied up; the heart that is upside-down; and the
heart that is clad in armor. As for the clear heart, it is the heart of the believer in which is a lamp filled with light; as for the covered heart, this is the
heart of the disbeliever; as for the upside-down heart, this is the heart of the hypocrite, who recognizes then denies; as for the armor-clad heart,
this is the heart in which there is both faith and hypocrisy. The parable of the faith in it is that of legume, a sprout that is irrigated with good water,
and the likeness of the hypocrisy in it is that of sores that are fed by blood and pus. Whichever of the two prevails is the characteristic that will
dominate.) Its chain of narrators is good (Jayyid) although they (Al-Bukhari and Muslim) did not record it.
(36. In houses which Allah has ordered to be raised, in them His Name is remembered. Therein glorify Him in the mornings and in the evenings,)
(37. Men whom neither trade nor business diverts from the remembrance of Allah nor from performing the Salah nor from giving the Zakah. They
fear a Day when hearts and eyes will be overturned.) (38. That Allah may reward them according to the best of their deeds, and add even more
for them out of His grace. And Allah provides without measure to whom He wills.)
The Great Sahabi and amongst the first Mufasireen of Quran Ibn Abbas (RA)
The verse also means means: the likeness of the light of Muhammad in the loins of his forefathers is like this, up to Allah’s saying (… kindled from a blessed tree). He says: the light of Muhammad in Abraham was an upright religion (olive tree), and Abraham was neither Jew nor Christian (neither of the East nor of the West), the works of Abraham would almost glow forth in the loins of his forefathers like this (would almost glow forth (of itself) up until Allah’s saying (kindled from a blessed tree) He says: as if it is the light of Muhammad (pbuh) and if Abraham was not a prophet, he would still have this light (though no fire touched it); it is also said that the latter passage means: Had Allah not honoured Abraham, he would not have had this light; it is also said: if Allah had not honoured His believing servant with this light, he would not have had it.[Tanwir al Miqbas Min Tafsir Ibn Abbas (Radhi ALLAH)]
*Note: The light of Prophet Muhammad salla lahu alahi wa sallam is the existence of him in the loins of his forefathers for every believer shines,and even before birth a believing soul remains a shining light.
Tafsir al-Jalalayn:on 24:35
“God is the Light of the heavens and the earth, in other words, He illumines both of them with the sun and the moon. The likeness of His Light, that is, the description of it [as it resides] in the heart of a believer, is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass - this [glass] is the [case for the] lantern and the misbāh is the torch, that is, the wick that is lit; al-mishkāt is a recess that does not penetrate [to the other side], in other words, the tube inside the lantern, the glass, with the light inside it [is], as it were a glittering star, that is, a light-giving [star] (read dirrī'un or durrī'un, derived from al-dar', 'to repel', because it repels darkness; or read durriyyun, derived from al-durr, 'pearls') kindled, is this lamp (read past tense tawaqqada; a variant reading has the imperfect tense of awqada, in the passive voice: yūqadu; another reading has tūqadu, in which case the reference is to al-zujāja, 'the glass') from, the oil of, a Blessed Tree, an olive neither of the east nor of the west, but in between the two, so that no harmful cold or heat affects it; whose oil would almost glow forth [of itself], though no fire touched it, because of [the extent of] its purity.
Light, by Him, upon light, by fire; the light of God is His guidance of the believer, light upon the light of faith. God guides to His Light, that is, [to] the religion of Islam, whom He will. And God strikes, He illustrates, similitudes for men, by approximating [such similitudes] to their comprehension, so that they might take heed and believe; and God is Knower of all things, including [knowledge of] how to strike similitudes.”
So Light Is Light Of Guidance.
-2:257 Allah is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light. 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).
7:157 Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, and honor him and help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him: they are the successful.
21:48 And We verily gave Moses and Aaron the Criterion and a light and a Reminder for those who keep from evil--
61:8. They intend to put out the Light of Allâh (i.e. the religion of Islâm, this Qur'ân, and Prophet Muhammad SAW) with their mouths. But Allâh will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it).
9:32 "Disbelievers desire to extinguish ALLAH's Light, with their mouths. But He will not allow that except to flourish this light, though the disbelievers do not like it" (9 - 32)
37:39"They want to extinguish ALLAH's Light with their mouths, but ALLAH will complete his light. Though the disbelievers detest it" (37 - 39)
5:44 Surely We revealed the Taurat in which was guidance and light”
5:46 “and We gave him (Isa) the Injeel in which was guidance and light”
42:52 "And thus did We reveal to you an inspired book (Quran) by Our command. You did not know what the Book was, nor (what) the faith (was), but We made it a light, guiding thereby whom We please of Our servants; and most surely you show the way to the right path:
5:15 There has come to you light and a clear Book from Allah"
64:8Therefore believe in Allah AND His Messenger AND the Light, which We have revealed; and Allah is Aware of what you do.
Before Birth All Are Muslims
When thy Lord drew forth from the Children of Adam - from their loins - their descendants, and made them testify concerning themselves, (saying): "Am I not your Lord (who cherishes and sustains you)?"- They said: "Yea! We do testify!" (This), lest ye should say on the Day of Judgment: "Of this we were never mindful":
( سورة الأعراف , Al-Araf, Chapter #7, Verse #172)
Pen Was Created First
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 94 Narrated byUbadah ibn as-Samit
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: The first thing which Allah created was Pen. He commanded it to write. It asked: What should I write? He said: Write the Decree (al-Qadr). So it wrote what had happened and what was going to happen up to eternity.
Pen Wrote Decree That Prophet Is The Seal Of Prophets
`Irbad ibn Sarya relates that the Prophet said: “Verily I was written in Allah’s Presence as the Seal of Prophets while verily Adam was still kneaded in his clay.” (Narrated by Ibn Hibban in his Sahih, and al-Hakim in his Mustadrak.)
*Note:The Decree was written initially.
· The Prophet also said: “I was a Prophet while Adam was still between the spirit and the body.” Tirmidhi narrated it and said it hasan sahih, and it is authenticated by al-Hakim 2:609 as sahih, and also narrated by Ibn Abi Shayba in his Musannaf 14:292, and al-Bukhari in his Tarikh 7:374.
*Note:He was a prophet ,written in the book of fate.
Breathed The Soul Which Allah Created
15;29. "So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him (Adam) the soul which I created for him, then fall (you) down prostrating
yourselves unto him."
*Note:Soul was created first then breathed into body.
A Weak Hadith
`Amr ibn `Abasa said that the Prophet said: “Verily, Allah created the spirits of His servants two thousand years before He created His servants. Then whichever among them recognized each other came close, and whichever did not, stayed apart.”
Suyuti in Takhrij ahadith sharh al-mawaqif (p. 31 #10) says that Ibn Mandah narrated it, while Haytami in his Fatawa hadithiyya says that it is extremely weak.
*Note:This hadith is weak but it signifies that spirits were created before human forms.
Spirit Was A light
Qadi `Iyad said in his book al-Shifa’, in the chapter on the nobility of the Prophet’s lineage:
Ibn `Abbas said that the spirit of the Prophet was a light in front of Allah two thousand years before he created Adam. That light glorified Him and the angels glorified by his glorification. When Allah created Adam, he cast that light into his loins.
*Note:Obviously when the souls are created first they will be before Allah,here the hadith is exclusively about prophet Muhamad salla lahu alahi wa sallam,the spirit was a light,and it was cast into the loins of Adam alai salaam ,further it passed from generation to generations till he was born Prophet Muhamad salla lahu alahi wa sallam
when Adam (May Allah bless him and grant Him peace) was being created, the noor of Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] was placed in Adam [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]’s forehead and Adam [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] saw Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace], Adam [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] asked “who is he?” Allah Ta’ala replied “He is the last Prophet and will be the chief of your children.” (Al Wafa chap on Birth of Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] by Ibn Jawzi)
*Note:When Adam alai salaam was created,the light of Prophet Muhammad salla lahu alaihi wa sallam was placed in his forehead,it passed through all generation till he was born.
Al-Zuhri narrated: ‘Abd Allah ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib was the most handsome man that had ever been seen among the Quraysh. One day he went out and was seen by an assembly of the women of Quraysh. One of them said: ‘O women of the Quraysh, which among you will marry this youth and catch thereby the light that is between his eyes? For verily there was a light between his eyes.” Thereafter Amina bint Wahb ibn ‘Abd Manaf ibn Zuhra married him, and after he joined her she carried the Messenger of Allah.[Al-Bayhaqi narrated it in Dala’il al-Nubuwwa (1:87). Al-Tabari in his Tarikh (2:243), Ibn al-Jawzi in al-Wafa'’ (p. 82-83, chapter 16 of Abwab bidayati nabiyyina)]
It is alleged a woman of Banu Asad who was the sister of Waraqa ibn Nawfal proposed to `Abd Allah, but he married Amina bint Wahb instead and consummated his marriage. Then he left her presence and met the woman who had proposed to him. He asked her why she did not make the proposal that she made to him the day before; to which she replied that the light that was in him the day before had left him, and she no longer had need of him... She said: "When you passed me there was a white blaze between your eyes and when I invited you you refused me and went to Amina, and she has taken it away.
Supplication To Seek Light Of Guidance & With The Light Of Guidance A believer Shines
The Book of Prayers (Kitab Al-Salat) Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 1671
Ibn 'Abbas reported: I spent a night with my material aunt (sister of my mother) Maimuna. The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) got up during the night and relieved himself, then washed his face and hands and went to sleep. He then got up again, and came to the water skin and loosened its straps, then performed good ablution between the two extremes. He then stood up and observed prayer. I also stood up and stretched my body fearing that he might be under the impression that I was there to find out (what he did at night). So I also performed ablution and stood up to pray, but I stood on his left. He took hold of my hand and made me go round to his right side. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) completed thirteen rak'abs of his night prayer. He then lay down and slept and snored (and it was his habit to snore while asleep). Then Bilal came and he informed him about the prayer. He (the Holy Prophet) then stood up for prayer and did not perform ablution, and his supplication included there words:" O Allah, place light in my heart, light in my sight, light in my hearing, light on my right hand, light on my left hand, light above me, light below me, light in front of me, light behind me, and enhance light for me."
Kuraib (the narrator) said: There are seven (words more) which are in my heart (but I cannot recall them) and I met some of the descendants of 'Abbas and they narrated these words to me and mentioned in them: (Light) in my sinew, in my flesh, in my blood, in my hair, in my skin, and made a mention of two more things. Also Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 1680 ,Hadith 1671 ,Hadith 1677 ,Hadith 1682
Ibn Hajar in Fath al-bari (1989 ed. 11:142) mentions a narration in Ibn Abi `Asim's Kitab al-du`a which states: "And grant me light upon light" (wa hab li nuran `ala nur). There are many sound narrations of this hadith mentioning other parts of the Prophet's person. Ibn Hajar states that Abu Bakr ibn al-`Arabi numbered the items for which the Prophet supplicated for light in himself at twenty-five in the totality of the sound narrations of that hadith. Among them are:
Light in the Prophet's heart,Light in the Prophet's tongue,Light in the Prophet's hearing,,Light in the Prophet's eyesight,Light in the Prophet's six directions: right, left, front, back, above, and below,,Light in the Prophet's soul,,Light in the Prophet's chest,,Light in the Prophet's sinew,Light in the Prophet's flesh
Light in the Prophet's blood,Light in the Prophet's hair,,Light in the Prophet's skin,,Light in the Prophet's bones,Light in the Prophet's grave,"Enhance light for me.""Give me abundant light.""Give me light upon light.""Make me light."
*Note:Believers shines with the light of guidance.This is the supplication for all the believers to make.
An-Nawawi observes, "The scholars say that asking for light for all organs and sides means (asking) to have the truth and guidance made clear for one's self. He asked for this so that there would be no deviation or misguidance left in him.”
The Light of Al-Haqq [Truth] and al-Hidaayah [guidance]
RasulAllah (saw) said : “O Allah, place light in my heart, light in my sight, light in my hearing..” until the end [of the hadeeth].. The Ulema have stated that the intended meaning of: `Asking for Noor [Light] in ones body parts [organs] and sides means [asking for] the Light of Al-Haqq [Truth] and al-Hidaayah [guidance] made clear for one’s self.. And [the reason for] asking for Noor in every part of the body [organs] and behaviour and sides and cases [Halaat] and all 6 directions, is so that none of the body parts would be left from this Noor..
Ibn `Uma Ibn `Umar r narrated that the Prophet said: "Allah the Exalted created creation in a darkness (fi zulmatin); then He cast upon them from His Light. Whoever was touched by that Light, he is guided, and whoever was missed by it is misguided. Therefore I say that the Pen is dry (and all is) in Allah's foreknowledge."
Narrated by Tirmidhi with a good chain in the Sunan (hasan), Ahmad in two places in his Musnad, Tabarani, al-Hakim in his Mustadrak, and Bayhaqi in the Sunan al-kubra. Ibn `Arabi al-Maliki in his commentary on Tirmidhi entitled `Aridat al- ahwadhi (10:108)
*Note:Light Is Guidance,whoever misses it is misguided.
Pray For Light
General Behavior (Kitab Al-Adab) Dawud :: Book 41 : Hadith 5065 Narrated AbuMalik:
The people asked: Tell us a word which we repeat in the morning, evening and when we rise.
So he commanded us to say: "O Allah! Creator of Heavens and Earth; Knower of all that is hidden and open; Thou art the Lord of everything; the angels testify that there is no god but Thee, for we seek refuge in Thee from the evil within ourselves, from the evil of the Devil accused and from the evil of his suggestion about partnership with Allah, and that we earn sin for ourselves or drag it to a Muslim."
AbuDawud said: And through the same chain of transmitters the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: When one rises in the morning, one should say: "We have reached the morning, and in the morning the dominion belongs to Allah, the Lord of the universe. O Allah! I ask Thee for the good this day contains, for conquest, victory, light, blessing and guidance during it; and I seek refuge in Thee from the evil it contains and the evil contained in what comes after it." In the evening he should say the equivalent.
Source Of Light/Guidance
Pious People Shine
I saw a radiant light.
Ibn Abi Hatim reported from Nawf Al-Bikali that he said, "Her people went out searching for her, she was from a family that was blessed with prophethood and nobility. However, they could not find any trace of her. They came across a cow herder and they asked him, `Have you seen a girl whose description is such and such' He replied, `No, but tonight I saw my cows doing something that I've never seen them do before.' They asked, `What did you see' He said, `Tonight I saw them prostrating in the direction of that valley.''' `Abdullah bin Ziyad said (adding to the narration), "I memorized from Sayyar that he (the cattle herder) said, `I saw a radiant light.' '' So they went towards the direction that he told him, and Maryam was coming towards them from that direction. When she saw them she sat down and she was holding her child in her lap. They came towards her until they were standing over her.
Source tafsir ibn kathir
Fatima Zahra [May Allah be pleased with her]
Fatimah, may God be pleased with her, was given the title of "az-Zahraa" which means "the Resplendent One". That was because of her beaming face which seemed to radiate light. It is said that when she stood for Prayer, the mihrab would reflect the light of her countenance. She was also called "al-Batul" because of her asceticism. Instead of spending her time in the company of women, much of her time would be spent in Salat, in reading the Quran and in other acts of ibadah.
Hassan, may Allah be pleased with him, also said:Noor has Allah created among his creaturesOne more faithful to his sojourner or his promise,Than he who was the source of our light.
Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, described the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, thus:aminun mustafa li al-khayri yad`u ka daw'i al-badri zayalahu al-zalamuA trustworthy one, chosen, calling to goodness, resembling the light of the full moon set off from darkness.
Bayhaqi narrated the above in Dala’il al-Nubuwwa (1:301-302)
Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said : “When my mother gave birth to me she saw a light proceeding from her which showed her the castles of Syria”
(Ref: Ibn Hisham; Tafsir Ibn Kathir 4:360; Bayhaqi, Dala’il an-Nubuwwa 1:110; Haythami, Zawa’id 8:221; Ibn al-Jawzi, ‘al-Wafa’; Qadi Iyad, ‘al-Shifa’)
After gaining victory and success in Ghazwa Tabook when Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) arrived in Madinatul Munawwara, Hadrat Sayyiduna Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) requested permission of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to read a few stanzas in his praise then Rahmate Alam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, " My dear Uncle ! Go ahead. May Almighty Allah keep your mouth well."
This is what al-`Abbas ibn `Abd al-Muttalib was indicating when he said:
... Before you came to this world,
you were excellent in the shadows and in the repository (i.e. loins)
in the time when they (Adam and Eve) covered themselves with leaves.
Then you descended through the ages...
When you were born, the earth shone
and the horizon was illuminated by your light.
We travel in that illumination and in the light and in the paths of right guidance.”
Mullah Ali al-Qari in his ‘Sharh al-Shifa’(1:364) says it is related by Abu Bakr al-Shafi`i and Tabarani, and cited by
Ibn `Abd al-Barr and Ibn al-Qayyim respectively in ‘al-Isti`ab’ and ‘Huda Nabiyy Allah (Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim)’.
The blessed and distinguished Sahabi-e-Rasool Hadrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) states, "When the beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) used to smile then the walls use to glow with his Noor."

The beloved sahabi of Rasool Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) Hadrat Anas (radi Allahu Anhu states, "The day on which Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) arrived in Madinatul Munawwara then through his noor every thing in Madinatul Munawwara became bright."

Ummul Mo'mineen, Sayyida Aisha Siddiqa (radi Allahu anha) is recorded to have said: "In total dark nights, I used to put the thread into a needle with the help of the Noor of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)." (Shara Shifa Bar Hashia Naseemur Riaz)
Hazrat Imam-e-Azam Abu Hanifa (radi Allahu anhu) praises the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in the following poem: "You are that Noor that the full Moon is brightened by your Noor and you are with your beauty and elegance a shining sun." (Qasidaul Nu'maan)
Hazrat Anas (radi Allahu anhu) states that the day in which the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) arrived in Madinatul Munawwarah, everything in Madinatul Munawwarah became bright through his Noor. (Tirmizi Shareef; Ibn Majah)
*Note:Throught The Light Of His Guidance, it was already day when Prophet salla lahu alahi wa sallam reached Madina.
Hearts Become Black On Lying
Speech Malik :: Book 56 : Hadith 56.7.18
Malik related to me that he heard that Abdullah ibn Masud used to say, "The slave continues to lie and a black spot grows in his heart until all his heart becomes black. Then he is written, in Allah's sight, among the liars."
Prayer is Light,Endurance Is Light
The Book of Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah)Muslim :: Book 2 : Hadith 432
Abu Malik at-Ash'ari reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Cleanliness is half of faith and al-Hamdu Liliah (Praise be to Allah) fills the scale, and Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah) and al-Hamdu Liliah (Praise be to Allah) fill upwhat is between the heavens and the earth, and prayer is a light, and charity is proof (of one's faith) and endurance is a brightness and the Holy Qur'an is a proof on your behalf or against you. All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.
Light of wisdom
Malik :: Book 59 : Hadith 59.1.1 Yahya related to me from Malik that he heard that Luqman al-Hakim made his will and counselled his son, saying, "My son! Sit with the learned men and keep close to them. Allah gives life to the hearts with the light of wisdom as Allah gives life to the dead earth with the abundant rain of the sky."
.He Gave Us Guidance And Light
Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab) Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 172 Narrated Al-Haitham bin Abu Sinan:
that he heard Abu Huraira in his narration, mentioning that the Prophet said, "A Muslim brother of yours who does not say dirty words." and by that he meant Ibn Rawaha, "said (in verse): 'We have Allah's Apostle with us who recites the Holy Qur'an in the early morning time. He gave us guidance and light while we were blind and astray, so our hearts are sure that whatever he says, will certainly happen. He does not touch his bed at night, being busy in worshipping Allah while the pagans are sound asleep in their beds.' "
Quran Contains Light
Muslim :: Book 31 : Hadith 5922
This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Abu Hayyan but with this addition:" The Book of Allah contains right guidance, the light, and whoever adheres to it and holds it fast, he is upon right guidance and whosoever deviates from it goes astray.
According to the Hadeeth of Jabir (ra):
RasulAllah (saw) said: “O Jabir, the first thing Allah created was the light of your Prophet from His light, and that light remained in the midst of His Power for as long as He wished, and there was not, at that time, a Tablet or a Pen or a Paradise or a Fire or an angel or a heaven or an earth. And when Allah wished to create creation, he divided that Light into four parts and from the first made the Pen, from the second the Tablet, from the third the Throne, [and from the fourth everything else]."
*Note:It is already stated in an authetic hadith that the first to be created was Pen,the above hadith also says,from the fourth part of Prophet Muhammad salla lahu alaihi wa sallam everything else was created,does it means satan was also created from his light?hence the hadith is fabricated as it contradicts the authentic hadith which says pen was the first creation.
Imaam as-Suyuti (rah) in al-Hawi li al-fatawi, in the explanation of Surat al-Muddaththir, said: "It has no reliable chain"; and in Takhrij ahadith sharh al-mawaqif: "I did not find it in that wording."
The Hadeeth of Jabir (ra) has been Found, some 1000 years
A“Forged” and “Fabricated” a `Lost Juzz’ from Mussanaf Abdur Razzak (rah) some 1000 years later.. This “Newly” found Juzz has only been published within the last 6-7 months..
Gibril Hadad states: “We do not have the entire Musnad of `Abd al-Razzaq in our hands. The 11 volumes presently published are NOT the entire work.”
“Muhammad Ameen Barakati Qadri” from al-Hind says, affirms it.. And Dr Isa al-Mani al-Humayri “Lost Juzz”, from India and made Tahqeeq of it and published it last year [December 2005] with a introduction from Saeed Mamduh [student of Shaykh Ghumari]..
The hadeeth of Jabir (ra), as cited by Gibril Hadad , is nowhere to be found in the currently published 11 volumes of Mussanaf Abdur Razzaq.. But has NOW been found [in the Lost Juzz] some 1000 years later by a some Indian endorsed by the Sufi Shaykhs: Dr Isa and Saeed Mamduh..
Furthermore… The hadeeth of Jabir (ra) happens to be the “First” hadeeth in this “Lost Juzz”.. Not only that, once again the complete Isnaad [chain of narration] is nowhere to be found!!. The Fabricated Hadeeth of Jabir (ra) was in the beginning of this `Manufactured’ Juzz!
Many Scholars of the Sunnah, such as Shaykh Zubair Ali Zay [amongst others] ripped this `alleged’ finding apart, as recent as April, 2006
Dr. `Isa has requested Shaykh Hisham's assistance in locating an original manuscript of this juz and Shaykh Hisham is requesting all who have such access to search through the world's library catalogs for a manuscript of this book, as it contains very important ahadith of the companion Jabir (ra) regarding Allah's creation of the Prophet's (saw) Light before all things”
Without doubt this “Lost” section attributed to Imaam Abdur Razzal al-San’ani’s Mussanaf is a blatant forgery..
Suyuti said in Manahil al-safa (p. 53 #128): “Ibn Abi `Umar al-`Adani relates it in his Musnad.” In Takhrij ahadith sharh al-mawaqif (p. 32 #12) Suyuti cites it with the wording: “The Quraysh were a light in front of Allah.” Ibn al-Qattan in his Ahkam (1:12) narrates it in the following form, although `Abd Allah al-Ghimari in Irshad al-talib rejects the latter as a forgery:

Kuraib reported: I remember twelve words out of these, bux have forgotten the rest. The Messenger of Allah said:" Place light in my heart, light in my tongue, light in my hearing, light in my sight, light above me, light below me, light on my right, light on my left, light in front of me, light behind me, place light in my soul, and make light abundant for me."

He got up and relieved himself. He then washed his face and hands and then went to sleep. He again got up and went near the water-skin and loosened its straps and then poured some water in a bowl and inclined it with his hands (towards himself). He then performed a good ablution between the two extremes and then stood up to pray. I also came and stood by his left side. He took hold of me and made me stand on his right side. It was in thirteen rak'ahs that the (night) prayer of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) was completed. He then slept till he began to snore, and we knew that he had gone to sleep by his snoring. He then went out (for the dawn prayer) and then again slept, and said while praying or prostrating himself:" O Allah! place light in my heart, light in my hearing, light in my sight, light on my right, light on my left, light in front of me, light behind me, light above me, light below me, make light for me," or he said:" Make me light."

He then stood up and prayed two rak'ahs, standing, bowing and prostrating himself at length in them. Then he finished, went to sleep and snored. He did that three times, six rak'ahs altogether, each time cleaning his teeth, performing ablution, and reciting these verses. Then he observed three rak'ahs of Witr. The Mu'adhdhin then pronounced the Adhan and he went out for prayer and was saying,:" O Allah I place light in my heart, light in my tongue, place light in my hearing, place light in my eyesight, place light behind me, and light in front of me, and place light above me, and light below me. O Allah! grant me light."

He then got up for the second time and came to the waterskin and loosened its straps and then performed ablution which was in fact an ablution (it was performed well), and implored (the Lord) thus:" Give me abundant light," and he made no mention of:" Make me light."
