An-Nur 35

Allah is the light
Of the heavens and the earth
The parable of His light
Is as if there were a niche
And within it a lamp
The lamp enclosed in glass
The glass it were
A briliiant star
Lit from a blessed tree
An olive, neither of the east
nor of the west
Whose oil is well-night
Though fire scarce touched it
Light upon light
Allah foth seth forth parables

For men : and Allah
Doth know all things!

(The Holy Quran, An-Nuur 35)
