They intend to put out the Light of Allah (i.e. the religion of Islam, this Qur'an, and Prophet Muhammad SAW) with their mouths. But Allah will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it). (As-Saff 61:8)
Allah has made mentioned of His light in numerous places in the Quran.
He referred to divine guidance as 'Noor' and also called Himself Noor (light).
When you hear this verse (61:8) another verse comes to mind Surah 9:32 is the verse that comes to mind.
The Quran resembles the Quran.
They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allah's Light (with which Muhammad SAW has been sent - Islamic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kafirun (disbelievers) hate (it). (At-Tawbah 9:32)
Allah told us the strategies the kuffaar will use to try to put out the light of Allah.
They use propaganda warfare (their mouth).
When they fight you its not just from one front.
They fight you financially by freezing your assets and brand you as a terrorist.
They fight you economically with sanctions and embargoes also culturally through Hollywood and Bollywood.
Then they will fight you militarily.
They will fight you politically by boycotting you and brand you as a rogue state.
Before they fight you militarily they have to destroy your character by way of propaganda warfare.
In this case the people will see you as a criminal and support them against you because they are successful in destroying your character.
But all their efforts go to waste because they end up in a quagmire after invading a Muslim country.
They see Islam as public enemy number one.
They propagate for the rights of gays and lesbians but Islam opposes these evil things.
The BBC, CNN and FOX News do the propaganda warfare, which is their job.
These news channels are toxic and so you need to look for authentic news somewhere else.
Watching these channels may make you a hypocrite because their aim is to water down things and give Islam and Muslims a bad name.
They don't call the conflicts in the Middle East the Muslim-Israeli conflict (for example) instead they call it the Arab- Israel conflict.
They choose their words carefully. This phrase gives the false notion that Masjid ul Aqsa belongs to Arabs only.
Their job is to convince the world that every Muslim is a terrorist.
Beware of their narratives because it is toxic and very dangerous.
A munafiq has his brain in the hands of CNN, BBC and FOX News so he calls the Mujahideen terrorists and sees the crusaders as heroes even though they are raping Muslim women, killing Muslim kids and stealing our natural resources.
Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allah) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)]! Have you then no sense? (Al-Baqarah 2:44)
They the kuffaar believe in collective punishment.
Hence whenever a Muslim is accused of commiting a crime they believe that the 1.5 billion Muslims should pay the price.
They killed both father and son like they did to Anwar Al Awlaki (rh) and his son.
His son was 16 years old and that wasn't terrorism but when the Taliban blow up a tank with IED that is terrorism.
You need alternative news outlets.
When the Kuwaiti lady lied and said the Iraqi soldiers dump Kuwaiti babies out of the incubators and ship the incubators back to Bagdad. This incubator story against Sadam Hussein was reported by CNN that news was faked, it was staged and it finished him off.
That was the first war against him but the whole world believed the story but when the truth came out the damage was already done.
The second Gulf war was based on the lie about WMD (weapons of mass destruction).
The people knew that their governments were lying and 1 million UK citizens marched against the decision to go to war.
They spent a lot of money to spread propaganda against Islam.
And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e.music, singing, etc.) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allah, the Verses of the Qur'an) by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment (in the Hell-fire). (Luqman 31:6)
They use music, cartoons, movies etc to insult Allah, His Rasul and His Deen.
Salman Rushdie wrote a book insulting Allah and was given knighthood in the UK.
Irshaad Manji an apostate in Canada insults Allah and His Deen.
She is a lesbian and the heroine of the kuffaar.
Some of these people who are born Muslims have an inferiority complex and it is the first step towards apostasy.
It is better for the kuffaar to call you proud than for you to have an inferiority complex.
All they do is sneer, smear and jeer.
Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the Path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcomed. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell. (Al-Anfal 8:36)
The kuffaar spend tirelessly but get frustrated because their monies always go in vain
The kuffaar lie all the time in ayah 8:36 Allah told you that the kuffaar will spend but they will be defeated
The Taliban were branded as terrorist because they harbored Al Qaeda
The kuffaar say that they are one and the same but now they are begging them to come to the negotiating table
They print leaflets and pamphlets saying that Allah is the moon and that Muslims worship the moon. The accusation that Muslims worship the moon does not make sense.
The Islamic scholars use the following Quranic verse to refute the liars and the haters who claim that Muslims worship the moon
And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him. (Fussilat 41:37)
Allah also called the Prophet Muhammad (saw) Noor.
He also called Himself Noor.
Allah 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! Allah guides to His Light whom He wills. And Allah sets forth parables for mankind, and Allah is All-Knower of everything. (An-Nur 24:35)
Madinah is called 'Munawara' because the Rasul is Noor.
But this doesn't mean that he is Noor because the Berailvis will claim so
What Noor means here is his guidance that he brought, his ways, his Sunnah etc.
O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad SAW) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light (Prophet Muhammad SAW) and a plain Book (this Qur'an). (Al-Ma'idah 5:15)
He had needs, emotional, financial, sexual and he also died so he can't be Noor
Was Prophet Muhammad a "Noor" or "Bashar", and is it true that he had no shade, even in light?
Praise be to Allaah
Our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is the leader of all the sons of Adam, and he is a human being, one of the sons of Adam. He was born from two parents, he ate food and married women, he got hungry and fell sick, and he felt joy and sorrow. One of the clearest signs of his humanity is that Allaah caused him to die as He causes all souls to die, but what distinguishes the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) from others is Prophethood and Revelation.
Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Say (O Muhammad): I am only a man like you. It has been revealed to me that your Ilaah (God) is One Ilaah (God i.e. Allaah)”
The light in this ayah (5:15) means his Sunnah
The state of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in his humanity is the same as that of all the Prophets and Messengers. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And We did not create them (the Messengers, with) bodies that ate not food, nor were they immortals”
Allaah condemned those who wondered at the humanity of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), as He says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And they say: Why does this Messenger (Muhammad) eat food, and walk about in the markets (as we)…?”
It is not permissible to overstep the mark with regard to what the Qur’aan states about the message and humanity of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). For example, it is not permissible to describe him (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) as being Noor (light) or as casting no shadow, or to say that he was created from light. Rather this is a kind of exaggeration which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade when he said: “Do not exaggerate about me as was exaggerated about ‘Eesa (Jesus) ibn Maryam. Say: the slave of Allaah and His Messenger.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6830.
Moreover it is proven that the angels are the ones who were created from light, not any of the sons of Adam. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The angels were created from light, and Iblees was created from smokeless fire, and Adam (peace be upon him) was created from what has been described to you.” Narrated by Muslim, 2996.
Shaykh al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (458):
This indicates that the well known hadeeth (report) that is in circulation among people – “The first thing that Allaah created was the light of your Prophet, O Jaabir” – is false, and so are other similar ahaadeeth (narrations) which say that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was created from light. This hadeeth clearly indicates that the angels are the only ones who are created from light, not Adam and his sons, so pay heed and do not be negligent. End quote.
The Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas (religious verdicts) was asked the following question:
Here in Pakistan the scholars of the Bareilawi sect believe that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cast no shadow, which indicates that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was not human. Is this hadeeth saheeh (authentic) which says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had no shadow?
This view is false and goes against the texts of the Qur’aan and the saheeh Sunnah which indicate that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was human and did not differ in his human make-up from other people. He had a shadow like any other human. The Prophethood with which Allaah honoured him did not alter the fact that he was human as Allaah created him, with a father and mother. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Say (O Muhammad): I am only a man like you. It has been revealed to me that your Ilaah (God) is One Ilaah (God .e. Allaah)”
“Their Messengers said to them: We are no more than human beings like you”
With regard to the report that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was created from the light of Allaah, this is a fabricated hadeeth. End quote.
Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 1/464
The angels are Noor because they were created from light.
The hadith that said that the Rasul (saw) was created from the Noor of Allah is a fabricated one.
Allah is the Wali (Protector or Guardian) of those who believe. He brings them out from darkness into light. But as for those who disbelieve, their Auliya (supporters and helpers) are Taghut [false deities and false leaders, etc.], they bring them out from light into darkness. Those are the dwellers of the Fire, and they will abide therein forever. (Al-Baqarah 2:257)
The Berailvis and goofy sufis love quoting it
In Surah 2:257 Allah calls Islam light and misguidance (kufr) as darkness
Is he whose breast Allah has opened to Islam, so that he is in light from His Lord (as he who is non-Muslim)? So, woe to those whose hearts are hardened against remembrance of Allah! They are in plain error! (Az-Zumar 39:22)
He calls Imaan Noor in Surah 39:22
O you who believe [in Musa (Moses) (i.e. Jews) and 'Iesa (Jesus) (i.e. Christians)]! Fear Allah, and believe too in His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), He will give you a double portion of His Mercy, and He will give you a light by which you shall walk (straight), and He will forgive you. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Hadid 57:28)
He also called al Hidaaya (guidance) as Noor in Surah 57:28
In conclusion I say, those who follow the Noor (Al Islam) with sincerity in the dunya
Allah will give you light in the hereafter to cross the sirat
But if you turn away from the Noor in the dunya then you will have no light in the hereafter
On the Day when the hypocrites men and women will say to the believers: "Wait for us! Let us get something from your light!" It will be said: "Go back to your rear! Then seek a light!" So a wall will be put up between them, with a gate therein. Inside it will be mercy, and outside it will be torment." (Al-Hadid 57:13)
(The hypocrites) will call the believers: "Were we not with you?" The believers will reply: "Yes! But you led yourselves into temptations, you looked forward for our destruction; you doubted (in Faith); and you were deceived by false desires, till the Command of Allah came to pass. And the chief deceiver (Satan) deceived you in respect of Allah." (Al-Hadid 57:14)
When the hypocrites say that they were with the believers
It means that they used to come to the Masjid for Jumuah, Eid etc but they allow themselves to be carried away by the temptations of the dunya.
QUESTION 1: SELAM ALEYKUM, CAN WE SAY ONLY ABOUT ALLAH NUR ALA NUR? OR CAN WE SAY ALSO ABOUT INSAN NUR ALA NUR?
You can say about insan nur ala nur because nur is guidance and knowledge and when you progress in this, it is nur ala nur
Allah said only He can give guidance
It is not just for Allah but you can say for humans as well
The evidence that mankind can progress in their faith is:
And whenever there comes down a Surah (chapter from the Qur'an), some of them (hypocrites) say: "Which of you has had his Faith increased by it?" As for those who believe, it has increased their Faith, and they rejoice. (At-Tawbah 9:124)
