Ayat an-Nur, Verse on Light, Koran 24:35
God is the Light of heaven and the earth.
The image of His Light a lamp within a niche.
The lamp is in a glass, the glass, as it were, a glittering star,
lit from a blessed olive tree,
neither of the East nor the West,
whose oil appears to shine,
though never touched by fire:
Light upon light,
God guides to His Light whom He chooses,
God shows forth images to mankind,
God is knowledge of all things.
