Illusion and Reality

If God wills it, plain as it is, after every delusion there is light. But I cannot think of delusion following light (awareness, knowledge, etc.), because after light there can be only light, more light or nothing. Why 'nothing'? As Imam al-Ghazali puts it, knowledge with no action is nothing. It's nothing. O Allah! Give me light (noor), give light to my eyes, give light to my tounge, to my ears; light to my right, to my left, light in front and behind me, give light to my qalb (heart). Give us the Light O our Generous Lord! Ameen.

Very well-said.
Imam completed the notion by adding the 'nothing' part. For oftentimes, abandoning the light or it's completeness results in this nothing.

May we never be led astray after having stepped on to the Right path...
