Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is Allah a noor (light)? Please explain to me? 


A: Noor is an attribute of Allah. The meaning of noor is zaahirun fee nafsihi wa muzhirun li ghayrihi. Allah Ta`ala’s existence is absolutely clear and He makes things apparent. In other words everything becomes apparent and clear through the noor of Allah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
