Allah Ta'ala says in the Holy Qur'an.

"Undoubtedly, there has come to you from Allah a light and a Book, luminous ".

(Surah Al-'Mai'dah' Verse 15).

Imam Tabari and Qadi Shawkani write under this verse that the meaning of Noor in this verse is used for our Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam as Zujaag said.

[Tafsir Tabari Tafsir Fathul Qadeer By Imam Tabari and Qadi Shawkani, under above verse]

From the above evidence we conclude that it is permissible to call Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] "Noor" and it is not Kufr or Shirk as some people consider ir to be.

Proof from the Hadith

Imam Tirmidhi wrote that when Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) smiled, it seemed as if Noor was coming from his teeth.

(Chap on Shamaa'il Tirmidhi)

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes

Abu Huraira radhiAllahu 'anhu narrates that: 'One night RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam asked me to take Hassan and Hussain radhiAllahu 'anhum to their mother, when I departed with them I witnessed a light which lit our path and travelled with us until we reached their doorstep.

[Tareekh Ibn Kathir and Sirat Tun- Nabi Ibn Kathir chapter on Muj'izat]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes:

Muhammad bin Hamza radhiAllahu 'anhu narrates that once RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam made my fingers glow with light. [Sirat Tun-Nabi Ibn Kathir chapter Muj'izat]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir states that:

'When the Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam was born, the King of Abysinnia witnessed the Noor of the Messenger Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam'.

[Tareekh Ibn Kathir, vol.2, Chap Milad-un-Nabi]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes:

'One companion radhiAllahu 'anhu reports that upon the occasion of Hajja-tul-Wida [the Prophets last seremon on the day of Hajj] he saw that the blessed face of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam was shining like the moon. [Tareekh Ibn Kathir, vol.6 chap, Moa'jeezat]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes:

'Whilst Abd-ul-Muttalib was walking with his son Abdullah, a woman saw a light in the forehead of Abdullah, she approached them and offered one hundred camels so that Abdullah may marry her but they refused her offer. Some time after his marriage to Amina, Abdullah again confronted this woman but this time she made no offers to marry him and said: 'The Noor upon your forehead is no longer present'.

[Tareekh Ibn Kathir, vol.2 Sirat Toon-Nabi Ibn Kathir,and Ibn Jareer Tabaree Chapter Mildun Nabi]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes

'The Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam said: 'I am the prayer of Ibraheem 'alaihi salaam, the prophecy of Isa 'alaihi salaam. When my mother was pregnant she witnessed so much light from her body that she could see the palaces of Syria'. [Ibn Kathir, vol.2 Sirat-Tun-Nabi Ibn Kathir Muktasar Sirat-Al-Rasool Ibn Shaykh Najdee]

Ibn-al-Jawzi narrates that the Noor of the Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam would overcome the light of both the sun and the lamp.

[Al-wafa Ibn Jawzi Chapter Al Wilaada]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes

Ka'ab bin Malik radhiAllahu 'anhu recited a [na'at] poem in the presence of the Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam [part of which we have translated from Arabic is]:

'We have come to you and you have transformed our darkness into light and have removed the barriers' of ignorance.

[Tareek, and Sirat-Tun-Nabi, Ibn Kathir Chapter Muj'izat]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes:

Hassaan Bin Thaabit radhiAllahu 'anhu said: 'RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam is that star from which even the moon of the fourteenth night obtains it light'.

[Tareekh Ibn Kathir, chap Wilada]

Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes:

From Ibn Hashaam who narrates that Hassaan Bin Thaabit RadiAllahu 'anhu who said: ' When I was eight years old, a Jew was calling to the people, they gathered around him and asked him what was the commotion, he replied: "The star of Ahmad has risen, that which is born tonight"

[Tareekh Ibn Kathir, vol.2 Sirat-Toon-Nabi Ibn Hassham chapter Milad un Nabi.]

All these references are proof of the light of RasoolAllah Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam, which was felt by the people and witnessed by those in his presence.

What was the first thing that Allah created?

There is a difference of opinion amongst the Scholars with regards to what was the first to be created, whether it was water, Arsh, (Throne) Rooh (noor) of Muhammad Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam, We say that Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] was the first creation of Allah Almighty.
