The Light of Submission

Post by Isa333 on Sat Jan 26, 2008 5:22 am

To know and recognize the truth, is in itself a blessing and a proof of guidance. But we must be careful not to attritube any power to ourselves as we are only its carriers.



I walk along a sandy beach
The sound of the sea fills my ears
The sun strains through the grayness of the sky
The sand feels warm beneath my feet
I shiver from the coolness of the wind

I found a golden shell some years ago
I recognized its beauty
And held it tight
It stayed with me o'er rocks and sand
Storm and calm
Only once I dropped it
But quickly picked it up again

Now itís part of me
Its golden rays shine from within
Its light reaching out to others
Through my submission
If ever I think its beauty belongs to me
I may lose it forever
For I am only a carrier of its light


In the following verses from the Quíran, we learn that guidance, knowledge and understanding come from the Creator, as a benefit to mankind. They comprise of a Light, which no individual or collective power on earth can extinguish. Should we be blessed to recognize the light of truth, we are indeed fortunate, as this light guides those who follow it sincerely, to a glorious eternal home.

"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 ease (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." (Al Qu'ran. Sura An-Nur 24:35)
