The End - 2000 to 2009

The human body literally glows, emitting a visible light in extremely small quantities at levels that rise and fall with the day, scientists now reveal.

Past research has shown that the body emits visible light, 1,000 times less intense than the levels to which our naked eyes are sensitive. In fact, virtually all living creatures emit very weak light, which is thought to be a byproduct of biochemical reactions involving free radicals.

(This visible light differs from the infrared radiation — an invisible form of light — that comes from body heat.)

To learn more about this faint visible light, scientists in Japan employed extraordinarily sensitive cameras capable of detecting single photons. Five healthy male volunteers in their 20s were placed bare-chested in front of the cameras in complete darkness in light-tight rooms for 20 minutes every three hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. for three days.

      The Muslim in me is like: “OooOooh.. cool!”.

      But the scientist in me is, like: “Why are they spending money on this research?”.

      It seems that they want to use photonics to help determine a person’s overall health.

      Btw, “biomedical photonics specialist” – how cool is that for a job title? 🙂

      Interesting story that you should add to your website MR.

      very cool

      But the suggestion that we might be able to test who has more Noor is rather frightening. Think of all the possible applications. :S

      It isn’t the same kind of prophetic Nur. It’s nur with a small “n”, if you will.

      this is pretty cool, but the whole “glowing” thing doesn’t just happen to shaykhs, it happens to a lot of people in different physical circumstances, like pregnant women for example.

      i wouldnt get too caught up in it….

      I think the point of posting this article was just to prove again that Islam is right. Some humans do have “noor” shining from their faces.

      I always knew i was bright.

      This is actually easily understood. The proteins in the body are about the size of the wavelength of light or smaller, and so it is entirely possible that they could produce light.

      I heard of one company that has a product in which they photograph the body under an intense flash of light. Cancer cells show up as dark spots, while healthy cells remain virtually transparent. Sounds like

      if you photograph ordinary mushrooms with an exposure for several minutes, you should see them glowing too. They emit a faint light.

      The prophetic noor is not created light. Light such as referenced in this study has its basis in dense created matter. If you can be sensitive enough, you can tell the difference.

    11. TheSoundMind July 31st, 2009 at 11:18 pm

      All light is created. The only thing uncreated is Allah and his attributes. There is no such thing as “The Uncreated Light”, and believeing that there is something uncreated alongside Allah is blasphemy. And he who believes blasphemy is not a muslim.

      Thanks for making takfir, dude. You’re awesome. And don’t know anything.

      To understand the light emanating from human bodies, one must first firmly grasp the FACT that the original SOUND (known by many different names) which governs this universe, generates (electromagnetic waves) LIGHT, which regulates the bonding of electrons into visible form, including human form. In other words, we unique audio files of the original SOUND, stored in various folders (our bodies). The original SOUND’s natural frequency is 7-14 Hz, (the Alpha Frequency) while the body it created to store an individual file, hears ( has a natural frequency) between 15 – 20,000 Hz. Intuitively knowing this, man created various processes (fasting, meditation, rituals etc.) to get into harmony with the original SOUND’s natural frequency, because when that is achieved, your DIVINE (electromagnetic waves/Light) GENIUS is unleashed. Unfortunately, the method utilized by every human who discovered this FACT, has been misunderstood or deliberately diluted and given to the masses as a religion, which has kept man at war with himself. The current social state of this planet confirms that there are no exceptions to that misunderstanding or dilution in any religion on this planet. No reasonable person can argue with the glaring FACT, that the difference in the original SOUND’s frequency and the frequency of the body it created, requires HARMONY between them to generate the LIGHT we are now getting faint glimpses of, because the universal time allotted for us to understand and practice the undiluted method (religion) for achieving HARMONY is about to run out. That religion is called TRUTH, which is conformity with FACT, which the sciences are providing us with, but we are disregarding due to institutionalized tradition and custom. The FEAR of going against centuries of tradition and custom not based in FACT or any other falsehood, accelerates the body’s frequency and eliminates any possibility of achieving HARMONY with the original SOUND, resulting in the transmission of distorted audio. The original SOUND, called by whatever name you know it by, has had enough of the DISTORTED audio coming out of the bodies it created to store its unique audio files. I am Melchizedek the Priest, the original SOUND’s chief audio file, who entrusted the custody and sharing of that crystal clear file to Abraham, symbolized by BREAD and WINE back in Genesis 14:18-20, as the eventual BODY to house that file. Custody was passed to the children of Abraham’s 2nd son, Isaac, who couldn’t grasp the full import of the file, and alienated the children of Ishmael, Abraham’s 1st son, with their interpretation. …..To be continued…
