Hinduism

They (i.e. the knowers of Brahman) SEE EVERYWHERE THE SUPREME LIGHT, which shines in Brahman, which is all-pervading like the light of day and which belongs to the primeval Seed. Perceiving the higher light in the sun -- which is above the darkness of ignorance -- as the higher light in the heart, PERCEIVING THE SUPREME LIGHT WHICH IS HIGHER THAN ALL LIGHTS, WE HAVE REACHED THE HIGHEST LIGHT, THE SUN, THE MOST LUMINOUS AMONG THE GODS, yea, we have reached the Highest Light, the Sun, the most luminous among the gods.
Brahman means Supreme Self.


HAVING ABANDONED ALL THOUGHTS AND BEING FREED FROM ALL ACTIONS, HE SHOULD ALWAYS CONCENTRATE HIS ATTENTION ON THE SOUND and his Chitta becomes absorbed in it. Just as the bee drinking the honey (alone) does not care for the odor, so the Chitta which is always absorbed in sound, does not long for sensual objects, as it is bound by the sweet smell of Nada and has abandoned its flitting nature. The serpent Chitta through listening to the Nada is entirely absorbed in it and becoming unconscious of everything CONCENTRATES ITSELF ON THE SOUND.
Nada means subtle or inner sound.


Islam

O Allah I place light in my heart, light in my tongue, place light in my hearing, place light in my eyesight, place light behind me, and light in front of me, and place light above me, and light below me. O Allah! grant me light.

~ Hadith, Sahih Muslim, Book 4, #1682
Say: Tell me, if Allah were to make the night to continue incessantly on you till the day of resurrection, who is the god besides Allah that could bring you light? Do you not then hear? Say: Tell me, if Allah were to make the day to continue incessantly on you till the day of resurrection, who is the god besides Allah that could bring you the night in which you take rest? Do you not then see?


~ Holy Qur'an, 28:71-72
And one of His signs is your sleeping and your seeking of His grace by night and (by) day; most surely there are signs in this for a people who would hear. And one of His signs is that He shows you the lightning for fear and for hope, and sends down water from the clouds then gives life therewith to the earth after its death; most surely there are signs in this for a people who understand. And one of His signs is that the heaven and the earth subsist by His command, then when He calls you with a (single) call from out of the earth, lo! you come forth.

~ Holy Qur'an, 30:23-25

[May you receive the blessing of] the greatest of all gods forever, and may he shine his light upon you, and tell you his great name so that you may truly know him. For he is the God of the ages, and Lord of everything that is done, and ruler of all people, doing with them whatever he pleases.

He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that MAN DOES NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT COMES FROM THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.

As for God, his way is perfect; THE WORD OF THE LORD IS FLAWLESS. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.

~ II Samuel 22:31, Holy Neviim
