There’s something beautiful about the concept of light. No matter what, it will shine thru. Either it’ll illuminate that which is dark and opaque, or it will pass through and find its way. No matter what, it cannot be diminished; As darkness is only the absence of light.
Such is the effect of knowledge of Allah SWT in the hearts. That knowledge, is light.
Knowing Allah SWT heals pain (much often referred to as darkness, right?). Brings peace at times of hardship. Simply illuminates one’s path. Eliminates ignorance. Gives hope at times of trails. And Increases patience and steadfastness.
And how beautiful is it that Allah SWT Himself gives the example of light and darkness many times in the Qur’an?
