The inspiration is from the Quran, Surah 24 verse 35: God is the light of the Heavens and the Earth. His light may be compared to a mihrab within which is a lamp, the lamp within a crystal like a star. It is lit by a blessed olive tree neither of the East nor of the West— its very oil would be well nigh luminous though fire touched it not.

The Arabic inscription refers to the Quran verse quoted above, often referred to as the light verse.
