The Ahlus Sunnah wa'l Jamaah believe that it is indeed permissible to call the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) as 'Nur of Allah'. The Qur'an has itself applied this description to the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and so have overwhelming ahadith.
However, it is often at this point that those who oppose this view believe from some erroneous conviction that we deem the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) as a non-human. This is indeed a strange and gross accusation. For those who claim that he was not a human, have clearly ventured out of the bounds of Islam, and have entered into kufr. The belief of Ahlus Sunnah wa'l Jamaah is that our Noble Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) is Nur and Human
No doubt, Prophet [salehalawaalihi wasalam] Was a human being , No one rejects that Prophet [salehalawaalihi wasalam] was not a human being, but Prophet [salehalawaalihi wasalam] was also Noor and Allah created it before He created Adam
The Noor of Prophet [salehalawaalihi wasalam] is not part of Allah [naoozbila] but a seperate creation which Allah created ,
This is belief of Sunnis
Muslims don't take Him as God ,
If being Noor means God than see how many become God according to Quran/hadiths
Noor of Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)
Indeed, there has come to you from Allâh a noor (Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and a plain Book (this Qur'ân). (5:15)
Noor of Muslims
Quran 39:22. Is he whose breast Allâh has opened to Islâm, so that he is in noor from His Lord
Quran 24:40 And he for whom Allâh has not appointed noor, for him there is no noor
Quran 57:13.On the Day when the hypocrites men and women will say to the believers: "Wait for us! Let us get something from your noor.......!"
Noor of Sun, Star, Moon
quran 10:5. It is He Who made the sun a shining thing and the moon as a noor....
Quran 25: 61. Blessed be He Who has placed in the heaven big stars, and has placed therein a great lamp (sun), and a moon giving noor.
Quran 71:16. And has made the moon a noor therein, and made the sun a lamp?
Noor of angels (malaikah)
SAhih Muslim Book 42 Hadith 7134
'A'isha reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Angels were born out of light
These All noors are different from one another. And cannot be compared, Are creations created by Allah , They are also physical and literal ,
So its what Quran and hadiths say, therre is no exaggeration
Allama Alusi (rah) also said:وكونه صلى الله عليه وسلم رحمة للجميع باعتبار أنه عليه الصلاة والسلام واسطة الفيض الإلهي على الممكنات على حسب القوابل، ولذا كان نوره صلى الله عليه وسلم أول المخلوقات، ففي الخبر " أول ما خلق الله تعالى نور نبيك يا جابر " وجاء " الله تعالى المعطي وأنا القاسم " وللصوفية قدست أسرارهم في هذا الفصل كلام فوق ذلك،
Translation: "The Prophet being a mercy to all is linked to the fact that he is the intermediary of the divine outpouring over all contingencies [i.e. all created things without exception], from the very beginnings (wasitat al-fayd al-ilahi `ala al-mumkinat `ala hasab al-qawabil), and that is why his light was the first of all things created, as stated in the report that "The first thing Allah created was the light of your Prophet, O Jabir," and also cited is: "Allah is the Giver and I am the Distributor." The Sufis -- may Allah sanctify their secrets -- have more to say on that chapter." [Tafsir Ruh al-Ma`ani, Volume 017, Page No. 105]
Arbaz Bin Sariyah (ra) narrated that the Sahaba asked (about reality of Prophet). The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said: I am the prayer of Ibrahim (Peace Be Upon Him) and Esa (Peace Be Upon Him) gave glad tiding of my arrival to his nation.My mother saw such a Light (Nur) coming out from her body that it lit the castles of Syria
