An-Nur (The Light): One of Allaah's Names, by Shaikh Dr. Saleh As-Saleh (rahimahullaah)
"Those who negate Allaah's Attribute of An-Nur erred by thinking that if they would affirm the Attribute of An-Nur, it would mean that Allaah is the light falling upon walls and gardens, etc.! The fact however is that the created light is an effect of the Attribute of An-Nur. We know that Ar-Rahmah (Mercy) is an Attribute of Allaah established with Him. The rahmah (mercy) present on earth is an effect of Allaah's Attribute of Ar-Rahmah separted from Him. The knowledge of the creature is a distinct and separate effect of Allaah's Attribute of Knowledge. The saying of 'Abdullaah ibn Mas'oud does not mean or imply that the light on walls and on the surface of the earth is the essence of the Light of Allaah's most honourable Face."

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk
If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
