O Light of light....

O Light of light
Thou art veiled to Thy creatures and they do not attain to Thy light
O Light of light
Thy light illuminates the people of heaven and enlightens the people of earth
O Light of all lightThy light is praised by all light.

Prayer Attributed to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him

*  *  *  *
 By means of the Divine Lights the heart becomes polished so that it shines like
a polished mirror. When it becomes a mirror one can see in it the reflection of
all existing things and the reflection of the Kingdom of God as they really are.
When one sees the Glory and Majesty of God in His Realm then all the lights
become one light and the chest becomes full with this shining light. He is like
a man who observes his reflection in a mirror and sees in it at the same time
the reflection of all that is before and behind him. Now when a ray of sun hits
the mirror the whole house becomes flooded with light from the meeting of these
two lights: the light of the sun-ray and the light of the mirror. Similarly the
heart: when it is polished and shining it beholds the Realm of Divine Glory and
the Divine Glory becomes revealed to it.

Al-Hakim At-Tirmidhi
