Mention of Light Technology from the Quran




General Preface

The reader should take time to understand and meditate the Quranic Ayaat, and if possible, my advice is to get the copy of Quran in any preferable language of your choice and learn. If you find anything not clear it doesn’t mean that Quran is wrong but it’s because our knowledge is not enough to understand the book and we need the teacher and from my opinion the best teacher is The book “Quran” itself (As an Ayat on the same subject from one chapter may be clarified by another Ayat from another chapter) and Hadiths or Traditions of Prophet Muhammed (which gives more light on the understanding of Quran) from volumes by Sahih Muslim and Sahih Al-Bukhariy known as Sahihayn (Sahih means genuine or authentic or sound and in Arabic Sahihayn means double authentic referring to the volumes written by these two scholars, the authentic volumes of Al-bukhariy and Muslim) and all these are now available online which requires only internet and search engine such as Google.

If you find any error in this small eBook then it’s from me and not Quran and I ask forgiveness from the creator. We should also remember that human beings are not exempted from errors and this is one of the human weaknesses as only the creator “Allah” is perfect.


In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Master of the Day of Judgment.

It is you we worship, and upon you we call for help.

Guide us to the straight path.

The path of those you have blessed, not of those against whom there is anger,

Nor of those who are misguided

My Lord, expand for me my breast [with assurance]

And ease for me my task

And untie the knot from my tongue

That they may understand my speech.

Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so].

O you who have believed, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace.

There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern

For anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.

I ask my Lord Allah to accept my prayers to Prophet Muhammad.

I also ask him to assist me to accomplish this small humble task.

As always we are required to start all our activities with a prayer praising Allah;

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.


Ayat Number 82 Chapter An-Nisa (The Women)

Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.

French Translation

Ne méditent-ils donc pas sur le Coran? S’il provenait d’un autre qu’Allah, ils y trouveraient certes maintes contradictions!

Ayat Number 53 Chapter Fussilat (Explained in Detail)

We will show them our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness

French Translation

Nous leur montrerons Nos signes dans l’univers et en eux-mêmes, jusqu’à ce qu’il leur devienne évident que c’est cela (le Coran), la Vérité. Ne suffit-il pas que ton Seigneur soit témoin de toute-chose?

I dedicate these few pages to my parents, my family, my wife and her family

And to all brothers and sisters who strive in the way of the Creator (Allah)




This booklet deals with the development of light technology from the invention of lamps to laser and beyond. The main components such as glass and energy in any form are the same although technology and some extra components has changed.

Quran mentioned these main components in the Chapter 24: Ayat Number 35 since 700 A.D. but it’s surprising that these Components were first implemented on 1780 after 1000 years!!! Of trial and error.

I have used throughout this booklet the name of God as Allah (As Allah has no gender or number as you can do with the word God), the word Ayat instead of Verse (Plural Ayaat) as Ayat (means signs) has deeper meaning than Verse.

I have also used the initials PBUH (peace be upon him) after the title “prophet” or name “Mohamed” or both “Prophet Mohammed” as requested all of us to do whenever one of these are / is mentioned.

Introduction and Timeline on lighting

Introduction on lighting

To the best of our archaeological knowledge, the first attempt at man-made lighting occurred about 70,000 BCE. The first lamp was invented made of a shell, hollowed-out rock, or other similar non-flammable object which was filled with a combustible material (probably dried grass or wood), sprinkled with animal fat (the original lighter fluid) and ignited.

As time passed, materials such as pottery and alabaster were used. Wicks were added to the lamp to control the rate of burning. In fact, the word lamp is derived from the Greek word lampas meaning torch.

Lamp developments continued but still used the same basic technology – control the burning of a fuel (natural oils, waxes, and the like) with wicks, tubes, chimneys, vents, and other similar devices, and put it in an attractive and/or practical housing.

Humans began imitating the natural shapes with manmade pottery, alabaster, and metal lamps. Wicks were later added to control the rate of burning. Around the 7th century BC, the Greeks began making terra cotta (Terra cotta is fired red clay used in sculpture and pottery) lamps to replace handheld torches. The word lamp is derived from the Greek word lampas, meaning torch.

Oil Lamps

In the 18th century, the central burner was invented, a major improvement in lamp design. The fuel source was now tightly enclosed in metal, and a adjustable metal tube was used to control the intensity of the fuel burning and intensity of the light

Around the same time, small glass chimneys were added to lamps to both protect the flame and control the flow of air to the flame. Ami Argand, a Swiss chemist is credited with first developing the principal of using an oil lamp with a hollow circular wick surrounded by a glass chimney in 1783

Coal and natural gas lamps were also becoming wide-spread. Coal gas was first used as a lighting fuel as early as 1784.

Gas Lights

In 1792, the first commercial use of gas lighting began when William Murdotch used coal gas for lighting his house in Redruth, Cornwall. German inventor Freidrich Winzer (Winsor) was the first person to patent coal gas lighting in 1804 and a “thermolampe” using gas distilled from wood was patented in 1799.

Lighting Fuels

Early lighting fuels consisted of olive oil, beeswax, fish oil, whale oil, sesame oil, nut oil, and similar substances. These were the most commonly used fuels until the late 18th century. However, the ancient Chinese collected natural gas in skins that was used for illumination.

In 1859, drilling for petroleum oil began and the kerosene (a petroleum derivative) lamp grew popular, first introduced in 1853 in Germany.

The first electric lamp was the carbon-arc lamp, demonstrated in 1801 by Sir Humphrey Davy, an English chemist. Electric lights became popular only after the incandescent lamp was developed independently by Sir Joseph Swan in England and Thomas Edison in the United States. The latter patented his invention in 1880 and subsequently made it the commercial success that it is today.

David Melvile received the first U.S. gas light patent in 1810.

Early in the 19th century, most cities in the United States and Europe had streets that were gaslight. Gas lighting for streets gave way to low pressure sodium and high pressure mercury lighting in the 1930s and the development of the electric lighting at the turn of the 19th century replaced gas lighting in homes.

Introduction and Timeline on Light Bulb

Electricity today is an expected commodity in many countries around the world, but it wasn’t always that way. The electric light bulb took a long journey before reaching the efficiency and reliability it has today

1803-The first Arc Lamp

Scientists had been working on an electric lamp for several years. A man named Humphry Davy created a lamp using volts from a battery, which produced light greater than one thousand candles.

1835-A light bulb

James Bowman Lindsay was the first person to contain an electrical charge inside of a glass bulb. He proudly showed his creation to others, though it was very unreliable at the time.

1841-Light up the night
Using Humphry Davy’s Arc Lamp, Paris set a new record. They became the first city to attempt lighting their streets with electric street lamps.

1956-The Geissler tube
Heinrich Geissler, a glassblower by trade, created a special tube to use with electricity. It could contain an electric charge, and it would pave the way for neon and other types of lighting.

1979-Thomas Edison’s designs

Thomas Edison devoted his adult life to working with electricity. He patented a lamp in 1879, then a 16-watt light bulb in 1880.

1893-Nikola Tesla
Mr. Tesla had worked closely with Thomas Edison before branching out on his own. He worked on creating a wireless electrical lamp.

1910-Neon lighting
Paris continued setting the stage for the newest designs in electrical lighting. They demonstrated the first neon lighting, which was created by Georges Claude, at the Paris Motor Show.

1926-Fluorescent lighting
A man named Edmund Germer created a lamp for fluorescent lighting. This new type of lighting would grow in popularity

1939-The World Fair
At New York’s World Fair, companies demonstrated the efficiency of the fluorescent light bulb. With WWII upon them, the world

1981-Energy saving lighting

The Philips Company created a fluorescent energy saving lamp. It used an integrated conventional ballast, but it was expensive for consumers to purchase.

1991-Longer lasting bulbs

When Edison patented his 16-watt bulb, it could last for 1500 hours. Philips created a new fluorescent bulb that could last up to 60,000 hours and be produced at a reasonable price.

1995-The LED light
A man named Shuji Nakamura created a new type of lighting. Using blue and white LED, or light-emitting diodes, he started a revolution of LED lighting.

2000-LED’s pushed forward

The Energy department recognized the need for greater efficiency in electric lighting. They created a device that would package LED’s together to generate better lighting.

2008-The L Prize Competition

The Energy Department decided to hold a contest for companies to create more efficient energy. Philips won the competition in 2011 with their affordable LED bulb.

2012-Energy savings
As of 2012, more than 49 million LED bulbs were being used across America. This saved around $675 million in energy costs.

Introduction and Timeline on Laser


What is the laser technology?

A laser is a device that emits light through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation. The term “laser” originated as an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation”.

Today, we all have lasers in our homes (in CD and DVD players), in our offices (in laser printers), and in the stores where we shop (in barcode scanners). Our clothes are cut with lasers, we fix our eyesight with them, and we send and receive emails over the Internet with signals that lasers fire down fiber-optic cables. Whether we realize it or not, all of us use lasers all day long, but how many of us really understand what they are or how they work?

The basic idea of a laser is simple. It’s a tube that concentrates light over and over again until it emerges in a really powerful beam.

Types of laser

Since we can excite many different kinds of atoms in many different ways, we can (theoretically) make many different kinds of lasers. In practice, there are only a handful of common kinds, of which the five best known are solid-state, gas, liquid dye, semiconductor, and fiber.

Solids, liquids, and gases are the three main states of matter and give us three different kinds of lasers. Solid-state lasers are like the ones I illustrated up above. The medium is something like a ruby rod or other solid crystalline material, and a flashtube wrapped around it pumps its atoms full of energy. To work effectively, the solid has to be doped, a process that replaces some of the solid’s atoms with ions of impurities, giving it just the right energy levels to produce laser light of a certain, precise frequency. Solid-state lasers produce high-powered beams, typically in very brief pulses. Gas lasers, by contrast, produce continuous bright beams using compounds of noble gases (in what are called excimer lasers) or carbon dioxide (CO2) as their medium, pumped by electricity. CO2 lasers are powerful, efficient, and typically used in industrial cutting and welding. Liquid dye lasers use a solution of organic dye molecules as the medium, pumped by something like an arc lamp, a flash lamp, or another laser. Their big advantage is that they can be used to produce a broader band of light frequencies than solid-state and gas lasers, and they can even be “tuned” to produce different frequencies.

How does a laser distance measurer work?

A Laser Distance Meter sends a pulse of laser light to the target and measures the time it takes for the reflection to return. For distances up to 30m, the accuracy is É3mm. On-board processing allows the device to add, subtract, and calculate areas and volumes and to triangulate. You can measure distances at a distance.

What is a laser beam made of?

A laser is effectively a machine that makes billions of atoms pump out trillions of photons (light particles) all at once so they line up to form a really concentrated light beam. A red laser contains a long crystal made of ruby (shown here as a red bar) with a flash tube (yellow zig-zag lines) wrapped around it.

Timeline on Laser

Laser Conceived

Nov. 13, 1957: Columbia University graduate student Gordon Gould jots his ideas for building a laser in his notebook and has it notarized by Jack Gould (no relation) at a candy store in the Bronx. It is considered the first use of the acronym LASER, light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Gould leaves the university a few months later to join private research company TRG (Technical Research Group).

Laser Patent Application

April 1959: Gould and TRG apply for laser-related patents stemming from Gould’s ideas.

Laser patent Granted

March 22, 1960: Townes and Schawlow, under Bell Labs, are granted US patent 2,929,922 for the optical maser, now called a laser. With their application denied, Gould and TRG launch what would become a 30-year patent dispute related to laser invention.

First Laser Constructed

May 16, 1960: Theodore H. Maiman, a physicist at Hughes Research Laboratories in Malibu, Calif., constructs the first laser using a cylinder of synthetic ruby 1 cm in diameter and 2 cm long, with the ends silver-coated to make them reflective and able to serve as a Fabry-Perot resonator. Maiman uses photographic flashlamps as the laser’s pump source.

Laser Announced

July 7, 1960: Hughes holds a press conference to announce Maiman’s achievement.

Second Laser Demonstrated

November 1960: Peter P. Sorokin and Mirek Stevenson of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center demonstrate the uranium laser, a four-stage solid-state device.

First Continuous-Beam (HeNE) laser

December 1960: Ali Javan, William Bennett Jr., and Donald Herriott of Bell Labs develop the helium-neon (HeNe) laser, the first to generate a continuous beam of light at 1.15 µm.

Short-Pulse laser announced

January 2010: A University of Konstanz research group, led by professor Alfred Leitenstorfer, announce they have generated extremely short laser pulses — the duration of only one cycle of light — at the 1.5-µm wavelength used to transmit data, an achievement that could benefit frequency metrology and ultrafast sciences such as ultrafast optical imaging. The group combines two pulses from a single erbium-doped fiber laser source to create the single 4.3 fs pulse

Single-Atom laser demonstrated

March 31, 2010: Rainer Blatt and Piet O. Schmidt and their team at the University of Innsbruck in Austria demonstrate a single-atom laser with and without threshold behavior by tuning the strength of atom/light field coupling.

Mention of Light Technology from the Quran

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly [white] star lit from [the oil of] a blessed olive tree, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He wills. And Allah presents examples for the people, and Allah is knowing of all things. (Quran 24:35)


Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth” means that He is a Guide to the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth.

In general, the word “light” has a vast meaning we can resume it’s meaning to “guidance” and “knowledge” as evidenced by the below Quranic Ayat in which Allah tells us about the believers whom He brings out from darkness into the light and about the non-believers whom He sends astray into the darkness.

Allah is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light. Of those who reject faith the patrons are the evil ones: from light they will lead them forth into the depths of darkness. They will be companions of the fire, to dwell therein (For ever). (Quran 2:257)

We can gauge the depth of the afore-mentioned Ayat (Quran 24:35) by taking a look at the number of things Allah that has mentioned in it:

Niche, Lamp, Glass, Radiant star, Blessed olive tree, East and the West (directions), Olive Oil, Light, Fire

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth means that Allah is ‘the Guide’ of his creations of the heavens and the earth. He is controlling their affairs and their stars and sun and moon.” By His (Allah’s) Light, the heavens and earth are illuminated.

From both The Bukhari and Muslim Volumes it is recorded that Ibn `Abbas, (may Allah be pleased with him), said, “When the Messenger of Allah got up to pray at night, he would say:

“O Allah, to You be praise, You are the Sustainer of heaven and earth and whoever is in them. To You be praise, You are the Light of the heavens and the earth and whoever is in them.”

If we ponder this Ayat we find that light is something which makes things visible; which is itself manifest and helps make other things manifest. The human mind conceives light in this very sense. Absence of light is termed darkness, invisibility and obscurity. On the other hand, when there is visibility and things become exposed to view, man says there is light. Allah has been called `Light’ in this basic sense, and not in the sense of a beam of light which travels at the speed of 186,000 miles per second and stimulates the optic nerve through the retina. This conception of light has nothing to do with the reality of the meaning for which human mind has coined this word.

The Guidance (Knowledge) in the heart of the believer in its purity and clarity is likened to a lamp in transparent and jewel-like glass, and the Qur’an by which it is (heart) guided is likened to good, pure, shining oil in which there is no impurity or deviation.

The lamp is in a glass means that this light is shining out through a clear glass (pearly star) and people around benefit from this light. This is the likeness of the heart of the believer who spreads the guidance to other human beings on this earth.

The energy for the lamp comes from the best olive oil whose tree neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself)). This is the best kind of oil. When the sun rises it reaches the tree from the east and when it sets it reaches it from the west, so the sun reaches it morning and evening, it is not counted as being in the east or in the west

Whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself), though no fire touched it because the oil itself is shining. Allah used Olive Oil for this parable is a perfect choice as this oil has special properties and characteristics, you can make it glow (its radioactive) with this easy experiment. Fluorescence is a slight quirk on how light generally works. Most often a photon is absorbed by an atom and emitted again at the same energy level as before. A fluorescent object will take in light at one energy level, and spit it out at a slightly lower level. Often the fluorescent objects that we’re sold will absorb ultraviolet light, which we can’t see, and then re-emit it as visible light, seeming to glow on their own.

Ultraviolet light isn’t needed to make things fluoresce. Olive oil, though it’s dull under regular light, is a fluorescent substance. Hit a clear glass of olive oil with a green or blue-violet laser. If you choose a laser with a wavelength of 405 nanometers, the oil should glow red. A 532 nanometer beam will make it glow orange. It’s not just lasers that will get the olive oil to fluoresce. Hitting it with ultraviolet light, a black light, will make it fluoresce a bright yellow color. That is, it will be yellow if it’s pure olive oil. A lot of olive oil is adulterated with cheaper vegetable oils; if more than five percent in some other oil, it will glow blue under black light.


Light upon Light means Light of the fire and the shininess of the oil. When they are combined, they give bright light, similarly the faith and deeds when combined the Guidance will be accepted and useful to others.

Allah guides to His Light whom He will means that Allah shows the way to the ones whom He chooses.

Having mentioned this parable of the Light of His guidance in the heart of the believer, Allah ends this Ayat with the below words

“And Allah sets forth parables for mankind, and Allah is All-Knower of everything”

Which mean that He knows best who deserves to be guided and who deserves to be led astray.


Allah alone knows what is inside our hearts, we cannot hide the reality of our beliefs and faith from Allah. We should not just focus on cleansing our hearts from spiritual disease and the black spots on them caused by our accumulated sins, but should also ask Allah in earnest supplication to make our hearts like the one mentioned in this Ayat (Quran 24:35) like a shining lamp. A heart that is filled with the light of faith accompanied by good deeds. A heart that is alive with love and remembrance of Allah. A heart that stays firm on its faith no matter where, or in which situation.

This parable revealed to prophet Mohammed on the 7th century mentions the invention of advanced type of lamps which was in advance to science of that period to be discovered later on 1780 by Aimé Argand, a Swiss physicist and chemist who greatly improved oil lamp efficiency and performance with improved oils and the use of glass chimneys to draft the flame, he used glass for the first time on his oil lamp

Quran is a not a book of science but a book of signs from the almighty Allah. It’s not a book where we can learn laser technology but the Ayat is astonishing because all the main components mentioned such as Glass and Energy (from oil) are similar to the latest Technologies and beyond require. For example if we examine the laser technology we find the same components such as glass in the form of the tube (Chrystal) and mirror (A mirror at one end of the laser tube keeps the photons bouncing back and forth inside the crystal)

Laser stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. One basic type of laser consists of a sealed tube, containing a pair of mirrors, and a laser medium that is excited by some form of energy to produce visible light, or invisible ultraviolet or infrared radiation.

There are many different types of lasers and each uses a different type of laser medium. Common laser media include gases such as argon or a helium and neon mixture, solid crystals such as ruby, and liquid dyes or chemicals. When energy is applied to the laser medium, it becomes excited and releases energy as particles of light (photons).

A pair of mirrors at either end of the sealed tube either reflects or transmits the light (see illustration below) in the form of a concentrated stream called a laser beam. Each laser medium produces a beam of a unique wavelength and color.





Components used in Scientific Experiment: Tube and Mirrors + Energy (Gas) etc. = Laser


Components mentioned in the Quran = Glass as Tube and Oil as Gas (Source of Energy= Light


Quran mentioned this technology 1000 years ago!!!!! If scientists would have read this book and understand it they would not waste centuries on trial and error methods.

The past and future light technology is clearly simplified and presented on few words on this Ayat but human beings love to waste time as they waste time on the theory of evolution which is already binned by great 21th century scientists but still some continue to deceive themselves and waste time.

Let’s go back to the source “The word of God” and his mercy, perhaps (if he wishes) he will light our ways on this world and hereafter towards success

If we ponder we will find a reason why Allah used Olive Oil for this parable, Olive Oil has several benefits and among the benefits of olive oil is “Bioenergy” or Biogas (Green Energy) which is one of advanced current promising energy and this is why Quran mentions its oil as a source of energy on lamps. Quran mention again Olive and Fig on another Ayat

“By the Fig and the Olive” (Chapter 95:1).

The mention of fig and olive on this Ayat is due to their importance.

Before I conclude I would like to mention that Quran is a message from Allah and it never Contain any linguistically or contextually errors, and any errors found in my eBook is from me, myself, and as I am a scholar and researcher I am not exempted from errors. I welcome any critics or comments which I believe will assist me to understand the reader’s viewpoint. You can leave your opinion on smash words website.


A ask Allah (Our Creator) to accept this humble task.
