LIGHT SYMBOL IN MASNAVI IN THE CONTEXT OF 35. VERSE OF LIGHT SURAH

Abstract

Author(s): Musa KAVAL

The source of light which is seen as a manifestation of the beginning of creation and continuation of life is God. God who states that He is the essence of everything’s prensence uses the metaphor of light which is important for humanbeing in terms of acquiring knowledge and senses in order to make the religious fact clear. As a symbol light we come across in many religions and civilizations has provided undeniable expression in transferring knowledge of God and religious truths. Mevlana who tried to explain Vahdat anf truth in clearness and simplicity used light, a powerful instrument of symbolism, in a lot of context in order to explain other truths out of the meaning given by the commentators. These truths which are Unity of Existence, Qur’an, Islam, the Prophet, other prophets, saints and the meaning of human were explained by the symbol of light. In our study we will deal with relationship between the truths Mevlana tried to explain and the symbol of light in context of Light Surah’s 35. verse.
