2- “The texts from the Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah relate An-Nur to Allaah, according to the following angles:
 
The First Angel:
 
a. That Allaah  has a Nur related (gr. conjugated) to Him as an Attribute of His Thaat [Essense], the same as His other Attributes of Life, Sight, Knowledge, Might, and so forth. Allaah, Most
Majestic and Most Magnificent, says:
 
And the earth will shine with the Light of its Rabb (Allaah–when He will come on the Day of Resurrection to judge among men)...[TMQ; Az-Zumar (39): 69]. And if the earth will shine with His Light, then He  is a Nur (Light) as stated by His Messenger, Muhammad : “You are the Light of the heavens and the earth...”4

3For a full text of the Prophet’s invocation see Saheeh Al-Bukhaari (English/Arabic), V.9, Hadeeth # 482.
 
4Grammatically, the “Light” which is related (annexed) to Allaah in the construct of the Aayah (which means): “And the earth will shine with the Light of its Rabb...” is not an annexation denoting possession, creation, honor,or preferment as it is the case in many aayaat (Verses) of the Noble Qur’aan
including:
 
a. Baytee (My house), mentioned in the aayah (which means): That they (Ibraaheem and Ismaa’eel) may purify Baytee (My house, i.e the Ka’bah) for those who circel it, or stay (in I’tikaaf ), or bow, or prostrate themselves (near it, in prayer).” (TMQ 2:125)
 
b. Naaqatullaah (Allaah’s She-Camel) mentioned in Allaah’s Saying (which means): “This Naaqatullaah (She-Camel of Allaah) is sent to you (ProphetSaalih’s people, Thamood) as a sign. So allow it to graze in Allaah’s
earth.”(TMQ 7:73).
