ANTITHESIS Q24.35, 40

I love a number of verses of the Qur’an for various reasons but these verses are one of my favourites because of the contrast. The comparison of the parable of Allah’s ‘Light upon Light’ juxtaposed with the state of a disbeliever’s ‘darkness upon darkness’, is striking. The description is so powerful that one is dazzled by the luminousness of the light but struck blind by the profoundness of the darkness.

Imagine the misfortune of being dragged into such debilitating dreariness after enjoying such gleaming brilliance; or the good fortune of being admitted into such dazzling radiance after dwelling in dismally depressing darkness.

SubhanAllah!

What is/are your favourite verse(s)?
