وَقَالَ اِبْن أَبِي حَاتِم حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّد بْن عَلِيّ بْن مُحَمَّد الطَّنَافِسِيّ حَدَّثَنَا اِبْن إِدْرِيس سَمِعْت أَبِي يَذْكُر عَنْ الْمِنْهَال بْن عَمْرو عَنْ قَيْس بْن السَّكَن عَنْ عَبْد اللَّه بْن مَسْعُود ” نُورهمْ يَسْعَى بَيْن أَيْدِيهمْ ” قَالَ عَلَى قَدْر أَعْمَالهمْ يَمُرُّونَ عَلَى الصِّرَاط مِنْهُمْ مَنْ نُوره مِثْل الْجَبَل وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ نُوره مِثْل النَّخْلَة وَأَدْنَاهُمْ نُورًا مَنْ نُوره فِي إِبْهَامه يَتَّقِد مَرَّة وَيُطْفَأ أُخْرَى

Ibn Abi Hatim narrated that `Abdullah bin Mas`ud commented on,

﴿نُورُهُمْ يَسْعَى بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ﴾

(Their Light will run forward before them), “They will pass on the Sirat. according to their deeds. The light that some people have will be as big as a mountain, while the light of others will be as big as a date tree. The people who will have the least light are those whose index fingers will sometimes be lit and extinguished at other times.”

Tabari

وَقَالَ اِبْن أَبِي حَاتِم أَيْضًا حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّد بْن إِسْمَاعِيل الْأَحْمَسِيّ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو يَحْيَى الْحَمَّانِيّ حَدَّثَنَا عُقْبَة بْن الْيَقْظَان عَنْ عِكْرِمَة عَنْ اِبْن عَبَّاس قَالَ لَيْسَ أَحَد مِنْ أَهْل التَّوْحِيد إِلَّا يُعْطَى نُورًا يَوْم الْقِيَامَة فَأَمَّا الْمُنَافِق فَيُطْفَأ نُوره فَالْمُؤْمِن مُشْفِق مِمَّا يَرَى مِنْ إِطْفَاء نُور الْمُنَافِقِينَ فَهُمْ يَقُولُونَ رَبّنَا أَتْمِمْ لَنَا نُورنَا

Ibn Abi Hatim also reported that Ibn `Abbas said, “Every person among the people of Tawhid (Islamic Monotheism) will gain a light on the Day of Resurrection. As for the hypocrite, his light will be extinguished. When the believers witness the hypocrite’s light being extinguished, they will feel anxious. Hence, they will supplicate,

﴿رَبَّنَآ أَتْمِمْ لَنَا نُورَنَا﴾

(Our Lord! Keep perfect our Light for us).”
