Quranic Jewels – قرآنيات

من سورة النور:ا

ا“اللَّـهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لَّا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ  نُّورٌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍۗ يَهْدِي اللَّـهُ لِنُورِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّـهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ وَاللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ (35)ا

God is the light of the heavens and the earth. The semblance of His light is that of a niche in which is a lamp, the flame within a glass, the glass a glittering star as it were, lit with the oil of a blessed tree, the olive, neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil appears to light up even though fire touches it not, — light upon light. God guides to His light whom He will. So does God advance precepts of wisdom for men, for God has knowledge of everything. [24:35]
