Aval Allah Noor Upaaya

I once heard Raagi Harjinder Singh Ji sing this shabad(hymns) from Gurbani ..and absolutely loved it ...It is written by Bhagat Kabeer Ji and is a part of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ...

the first few lines are

Aval Allah noor upaaeiaa kudrat ke sab bandey ||
Ek noor te sab jag upajaiaa koun bhalae ko mande ?
logaa bharam n bhoolahu bhaaee ||
khaalik khalak.. khalak mehi khaalik poor rahiou srab thaii....


I also found the translation of whole shabad online
@http://www.sikhitothemax.com/Page.asp?SourceID=G&PageNo=&ShabadID=4892&Format=2

First, Allah created the Light;
then, by His Creative Power, He made all mortal beings.
From the One Light, the entire universe welled up.
So who is good, and who is bad? ||1||

O people, O Siblings of Destiny, do not wander deluded by doubt.
The Creation is in the Creator, and the Creator is in the Creation,
totally pervading and permeating all places. ||1||Pause||

The clay is the same,
but the Fashioner has fashioned it in various ways.
There is nothing wrong with the pot of clay
- there is nothing wrong with the Potter. ||2||

The One True Lord abides in all;
by His making, everything is made.
Whoever realizes the Hukam of His Command,
knows the One Lord.
He alone is said to be the Lord's slave. ||3||

The Lord Allah is Unseen; He cannot be seen.
The Guru has blessed me with this sweet molasses.
Says Kabeer, my anxiety and fear have been taken away;
I see the Immaculate Lord pervading everywhere.

Krishna gave a good comment here she told about the God blessings with his noor---very beautiful!
The knowledge of the creation is the knowledge of creator...Allahu noor-us-samawati wal-arz = Allah is the light of heavens and the earth---here the light (noor) is the knowledge of creation...Allah himself a fire of love---he gave us a little quantity of fuel..in the form of self...we just need to ignite it with his noor...
May Allah bless you all with his beautiful knowledge..
