Like they said above, light doesn't have mass. A photon acts like a particle rather than a wave, but that "particle" is only used for visualizing discrete amounts of energy, 1:1 photon:electron interactions, etc. A photon has a velocity as well.
Additionally, light does not exist when it is not moving. Unlike an object like an electron, which is said to have a “rest mass”, light has no mass when it is not moving because it doesn’t exist when it is resting. Something must be in existence when it is not moving for its mass to be measured. Objects with rest mass can therefore not have a velocity faster than the speed of light because light has no mass.
