the Almighty states:
"And made the moon a light in their midst and made the sun as a (Glorious)
(Wa ja'alal qamara fihin na nu_raw wa ja'alas samsa SIRA_JA_)
[Surah Nuh (71): 16]
Here the word 'SIRA_JA_' is used to refer to the sun, as a light, a lamp, a
means of guidance to be able to see during the day.
However when we read the following verse.
"And as one who invites to Allah's (Grace) by His leave and as a Lamp
(Wa da_iyan ilal la_hi bi iznihi wa SIRA_JAM MUNIRA_)
[Surah al Azhab (33): 46]
The word SIRA_JAM MUNIRA is used here to refer to the Prophet Muhammad, also
as a light, or a beacon who is bringing wisdom, knowledge, guidance.
May Allah help us all see and understand the simplicity of Islam as clear as
the light lets us see during the day, ameen.
