    No. The nur of RasulAllah ﷺ is NOT a PART of Allah ta'ala whatsoever.

    Allah ta'ala existed. Nothing else. He then Willed to create and He CREATED the light of RasulAllah ﷺ.

    i heard something like this to that Prophet ﷺ is created with Allah's Noor?

    Allah Azzawajal Forgive Me Ameen.

    I want the input of learned brothers about any words that need changing etc.

    It seems some of our awaam think the nur of RasulAllah ﷺ is a part of the nur of Allah. Astaghfirullah.

    I wish to release a statement about hadith of Sayyiduna jabir رضي الله عنه.

    Can brothers please help. So far:

    It's crucial that Ahlu's Sunnah - specifically our awaam - understand the true meaning of the Hadith of Jābir.

    It reads:

    إن الله خلق قبل الأشياء نور نبيّك من نوره
    Indeed Allah created before anything else, the light of your Prophet from His light.

    The word من here is ibtidā'iyah (to indicate beginningness). It is of tashrīf (nobility). It means the nūr had a beginning (ibtidā') and was created by Allah and it is under the authority of Allah.

    Just as we say BaytAllah for ka'abah sharif because it has a connection to Allah - we say NūrAllah to show the light of RasulAllah ﷺ has a special connection to Allah.

    The من in no way means the light of RasulAllah ﷺ is a part or portion of Allah. That would be kufr.
