The name NURA is derived from the Arabic language meaning "the Light". Light is a metaphor for wisdom, knowledge, and truth. The purpose of light is to give a clear perception of what may not be seen otherwise.The best example is given in Plato's Allegory of the Cave. The men of the cave thought they knew everything there was to know about life until they were expose to light. Light in that example was not only a representation of knowledge but truth. Nura Magazine hopes to provide articles that are captivating yet rich with wisdom.
