Lit From A Blessed Tree

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 as it were a brilliant star;

Lit from a blessed Tree,
An Olive, neither of the East nor of the West,
Whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it;

Light upon Light!
Allah doth set forth parables for men:
and Allah doth know all things.

Surah 24:35 Al Nur (The Light)
