As-Salaam alaikum,
  Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

   "Allah the Exalted created creation in a darkness [fi zulmatin];
   then He cast upon them from His Light. Whoever was touched by
  that Light, he is guided, and whoever was missed by it is misguided.
  Therefore, I say that the Pen is dry [and all is] in Allah's Knowledge."
              (Reported by Tirmidhi, Ahmad, Tabarani and Bayhaqi)

  Abdullah Ibn Amr narrated: "I heard Allah's Messenger, Sallallahu
  alaihi Wasallam, saying: 'Verily Allah created the elements of man
 in darkness and then He infused into them His Light. He who
 received this Light (and then made use of it) received the right
 guidance and he who erred was led astray. That is why I say that
 the Pen has no more to write about Allah's Knowledge."
                   (Reported by: Ahmad and Tirmidhi)

Commenting on this hadith in his work, 'Aridat al-ahwadhi (10:108)', Ibn Arabi al-Makki observed that "it is clear from it that each one receives of that Light to the extent of what he has been granted out of the general and the the heart and in the limbs."
