Fear no more. Hast thou heard these words, Arjuna, in the silent communion of they soul? Has the darkness of thy delusion been dispelled by the inner light.?

In the beginning was the Word, and Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him; and without him was not any thing made that hath been made. In him was Life; and the Life was the Light of men.

There came a man, sent from God,

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. His light is like a niche in which there is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is, as it were a shining star. This lamp is kindled from a blessed tree, and olive, neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth of itself, though no fire touched it. Light upon light, Allah guideth unto His light whom He will.
From Abu Talib
O God, give me light in my heart and light in my tomb, and light in my hearing and light in my sight, and light in my feeling and light in all my body, and light before me and light behind me, and light on my right hand and light on my left, and light above me and light beneath me. O Lord, increase light within me, and give me light, and illuminate me.
From the WRITINGS of Hazrat Inayat

and the sun in the sky is
A diamond must be cut before its light can shine out.
The discovering of error is the uncovering of the light.

Light is Thy face and shade is Thy bosom, Beloved.
In the light I behold Thy beauty, beloved; through the darkness, thy mystery is revealed to my heart.
The light which comes from the soul, rises through the heart, and manifests outwardly in man's smile, is indeed the light from heaven. In that light many flowers grow and many fruits ripen.
