Friday Sermon 10 November 1995
Allah is the Light of the heavens and the Earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche, wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a crystal globe. The globe is bright as it were a glittering star and a lamp lit from a blessed olive tree neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would well-nigh glow forth even though fire touched it not. Light upon light! Allah guides to His light whosoever He wills. And Allah sets forth parables for people, and Allah knows all things completely. Glowing forth from houses for which Allah ordained that they be exalted and that His name be commemorated in them. Glorify Him therein in the mornings and the evenings. ('The Holy Quran'. al-Nur [The Light]: 36, 37). One can never reach the depths of the light of Almighty God, nor comprehend its reality and its true gnosis so Almighty God explains this subject through examples: the purest and clearest and nearest example that can be given in explanation of the light of Allah the Almighty which is mentioned by Almighty God is that of the Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. If Allah the Almighty had not explained His light by giving the example of the Immaculate Prophet Muhammad ﷺ it was impossible for any person to have understood the light of Allah. Anyone who is modest and civil cannot possibly dare to open their mouth against the Promised Messiah after reading his commentary on this verse. The Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) has a eternal cohesion with the Holy Prophet ﷺ based upon love and affection. This is a subject which requires the light of insight to be understood. For this possessing academic Degrees is unimportant. It is the light of virtue that in turn imparts light, increases one's knowledge and increases one's gnosis. If the light which descends from the heavens seems murky to you then you should worry about your eyesight. It does not require knowledge rather it requires visionary insight. Just as light requires good vision in the material world so in the spiritual world these things are easy to understand through sharpness of insight. May Allah Almighty grant us all the sharp vision which has the capacity to see the Divine Light whenever God so desires to reveal it.
