Allah the Almighty said:

"From Allah has come to you a Light and a Book manifest." (5:15)

Qadi `Iyad, may Allah be pleased with him, said: "He [the Prophet] was named a Light because of the clarity of his case and the fact that his Prophecy was made manifest, and also because of the illumination of the hearts of the believers and the knowers of Allah with what he brought."

Imam al-Suyuti, may Allah be pleased with him, in Tafsir al-Jalalayn, Fayruzabadi, May Allah be pleased with him, in the Tafsir Ibn `Abbas entitled Tanwir al-miqbas (p. 72), Shaykh al-Islam, Imam Fakhr al-Din al-Razi, May Allah be pleased with him, the Mujaddid of the sixth century, in his Tafsir al-kabir (11:189), Qadi Baydawi, may Allah be pleased with him, in his Tafsir entitled Anwar al-tanzil, al-Baghawi, may Allah be pleased with him, in his Tafsir entitled Ma`alim al- tanzil (2:23), Imam al-Shirbini, may Allah be pleased with him, in his Tafsir entitled al-Siraj al- munir (p. 360), the author of Tafsir Abi Sa`ud (4:36), and Thana'ullah Pani Patti, May Allah be pleased with him, in his Tafsir al-Mazhari, (3:67) all said: "What is meant by a Light is: Muhammad, Blessings and peace upon him."


Ibn Jarir al-Tabari, may Allah be pleased with him, in his Tafsir jami` al-bayan (6:92) said: "There has come to you a Light from Allah: He means by the Light: Muhammad, Blessings and peace upon him, by means of whom Allah has illuminated the truth, brought forth Islam, and obliterated idolatry. Therefore he (the Prophet) is a Light for those who have been enlightened by him and by his exposition of truth."



When I beheld his lights shining out,
I placed in awe my hand before my eyes,
In fear for my sight at the beauty of his frame;
and now I look at him only to my capacity.
His light has made all lights drown in his lights
---Hassan b. Thabit.
