Al-Noor

‘Noor’ and ‘Al-Noor’ are generally translated as ‘Light’, however ‘Noor’ has a much deeper and broader meaning, as one can understand from its opposite ‘Zulumat’ (multiple darkness). Imam Al-Reza asws explained the meaning of the Words of Allah azwj: Allah is Noor (Light) of the skies and the earth [24:35]. He asws said: ‘A Guide for the inhabitants of the sky and a Guide for the inhabitants of the earth’. (An extract)
