Assalam o alaykum,
I repeat: You still haven't brought forward any proof stating that Holy Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) was nur in haqiqat and a bashar only outwardly. This is the main point of difference.Don't bring forth ambiguous statements stating that our Nabi was a light. If there are no such statements in the books of 'aqidah, then admit so. Otherwise I see no point in continuing any further as we are going in circles.
And I also asked: "Also are you implying that Holy Prophet was emitting light? If yes, was this only for that particular occasion or at all times? Was Holy Prophet emitting light at all times so that it was always bright; hence never dark?"
As far as the statement 'light of Allah', then Imam 'Abd al-Hayy Lakhnawi (may Allah have mercy on him) writes,

ومنها ما يذكرونه في ذكر المولد النبوي أن نور محمد خلق من نور الله بمعنى أن ذاته المقدسة صارت مادة لذاته المنورة وأنه تعالى أخذ قبضة من نوره فخلق من نوره وهذا سفسطة من القول فإن ذات ربنا تبارك وتعالى من أن تكون مادة لغيره وأخذ قبضة من نوره ليس معناه أنه قطع منه جزء فجعله نور نبيه فإنه مستلزم للتجزي وغير ذلك مما يتبعه في ذاته تعالى الله عنه والذي أوقعهم في هذه الورطة الظلماء هو ظاهر رواية عبد الرزاق في مصنفه عن جابر قال قلت يا رسول الله بأبي أنت وأمي أخبرني عن أول شيء خلقه الله قبل الأشياء فقال يا جابر إن الله خلق قبل الأشياء نور نبيك من نوره فجعل ذلك النور يدور بالقدرة حيث شاء الله ولم يكن في ذلك الوقت لوح ولا قلم ولا جنة ولا نار ولا ملك ولا سماء ولا أرض ولا شمس ولا قمر ولا جني ولا إنس الحديث المذكور بتمامه في المواهب اللدنية وغيره وقد أخطأوا في فهم المراد النبوي ولم يعلموا أن الإضافة في قوله من نوره كالإضافة في قوله تعالى في قصة خلق آدم ونفخت فيه من روحي وكقوله تعالى من قصة سيدنا عيسى وروح منه وكقولهم بيت الله الكعبة والمساجد وقولهم روح الله لعيسى وغير ذلك قال الزرقاني في شرح المواهب عند شرح قوله من نوره إضافة تشريف وإشعار بأنه خلق عجيب وأن له شأنا له مناسبة ما إلى الحضرة الربوبية على حد قوله تعالى ونفخ فيه من روحه وهي بيانية أي من نور هو ذاته لا بمعنى أنها مادة خلق نوره بل بمعنى تعلق الإرادة به بلا واسطه شيء في وجوده انتهى
“One of them [fabrications] is what they mention in functions held on the occasion of the Prophet’s birth that the nur (light) of Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) was created out of the light of Allah i.e. Allah’s Holy Self was the substance of his illuminated existence and Allah picked up a handful of His light and created him with the same. This is sophism, as our Lord Most High is far away from being substance for anyone. As far as taking handful of His light is concerned, it does not mean that He separated a part and made the light of His prophet out of the same; since it will require fragmentation and so many other things which will follow as a result about Allah Most High. They fell in this dark whirlwind due to the outer meaning of the tradition narrated by ‘Abd al-Razzaq in his Musannaf from Sayyiduna Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) as he said: "Let my father and mother be sacrificed for you, please tell me about the first thing Allah created. He replied: 'O Jabir! Allah created the light of your Prophet before every thing out of His light and He made this light travel to anywhere He likes. There was no Tablet, no Pen, not even Jannah and Jahannam, angel, sky and earth, sun and moon and no jinn and human'.” The complete hadith is mentioned in Mawahib al-Ladunniyyah and other books. They have mistaken in understanding the message conveyed by the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) and they did not think that attribution in the phrase ‘out of His light’ is just like the attribution made in the story of Adam’s creation as He said: “I breath My spirit into him” and as He said about the Prophet Isa (may the peace of Allah be upon him): “a spirit proceeding from Him” as people say: “Ka’bah and mosques are Allah’s house” and as they call Prophet Isa as “Sprit of Allah” and so on. Al-Zurqani says in the commentary of al-Mawahib while explaining the phrase ‘out of His light’ that the attribution is just for the sake of honor as an indication that the creation was wonderful event and he has such a loftiness in the Court of the Lord as it was said: “I breath My spirit into him” i.e. out of Light which is His Self not that it was the substance of prophet’s creation rather it only means direct relation of His will with him in his existence.”
