Narrated Aisha R.A.A, The mother of faithful believers: The commencement of the divine revelations to Allah’s Messenger S.A.S was in the form of good righteous (true) dreams which came true like bright daylight, and then the love of seclusion was bestowed upon him. He used to go in seclusion n the cave of Hira where he used to worship (Allah Alone) continuously for many nights before returning to his family. He used to take with him the journey food for the stay and then come home back to his wife Khadija to take his food likewise again till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him and asked him to read. The prophet S.A.S replied, ‘I do not know how to read’.

The prophet S.A.S added, ‘ Then the angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ‘ I do not know how to read’. Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second  time till I could not bear it any more. He then released me and asked me again to read but I again replied, ‘I do not know how to read’. Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then released me and said, ‘Read in the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists). Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most generous,(V.96:1-3). Then Allah Messenger S.A.S returned with the revelation and his heart beating severely. Then he came to Khadijah bint khuwalid R.A.A and said, ‘Cover me! Cover me!’ They covered him till his fear was over and after that he told khadijah R.A.A everything that happened (And said), I fear that something may happen to me’. Khadijah replied, ‘ Nerver! By Allah, Allah will never disgrace you. You keep good relations with your kith and kin, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously and assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones.’

Khadijah R.A.A then accompanied him to her cousin Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad bin Abdul Uzza, who during the period of ignorance became a christian and used to write the writings with Hebrew letters. He would write from the Gospel in Hebrew as much as Allah wished him to write. He was an old man and had lost his eyesight. Khadijah said to Waraqa,’Listen to the story of your nephew, O my cousin!’ Waraqa said, ‘O my nephew, what have you seen?’ Allah’s Messenger described whatever he had seen. Warqa said, ‘This is the same one(angel, i.e. Jibril) whom Allah has sent to Musa. I wish I were young and could live up to the time when your people would turn you out’. Allah’s Messenger asked, ‘Will they drive me out?’ Waraqa replied in affirmative and added, ‘Anyone who came with something similar to what you have brought was treated with hostility; and if I should remain alive till the day then I would support you strongly,. But after a few days Waraqa died and the divine revelations was also paused for a while.

Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah Al-Ansari while talking about the period of pause in revelation, reported the speech of the prophet S.A.S. While i was walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the sky. I looked up and saw the same angel, who had visited me at the cave of Hira, sitting on a chair between the sky and the earth. I got scared of him and came back home and said, ‘Wrap me(in a blanket).’ And then Allah revealed the following Holy verses of Quran: ‘O you(Muhammad S.A.S) envoled(in garments)! Arise and warn … (upto you) and keep away from Ar-Rujz(the idols)! {V.74:1-5}. After this the revelations started coming strongly and frequently in succession one after the other. (Sahih Al Bukhari, #3 &4).

Narrated Aishah R.A.A the Mother of All Believers, Al-Harith bin Hisham R.A.A asked Allah’s Messenger S.A.S, “O Allah’s Messenger! How is the divine Revelation revealed to you?” Muhammad S.A.S replied ,’Sometimes it is revealed like a ringing of a Bell, this form of revelation is the hardest of all and then this state passes off after I have grasped what is revealed. Sometimes the angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and i grasp whatever he says.’ Aishah R.A.A added: ‘Verily I saw the Prophet S.A.S being inspired (divinely) and (noticed) the sweat dropping from his forehead on a very cold day as the Revelation was over.’

Narrated Sa’id bin Juair: Ibn Abbas said, “Allah’s Messenger S.A.S used to bear the revelation with great stress and hardness, and used to move his lips(quickly with the revelations), So, Allah revealed, ‘Move not your tongue corcerning (the Quran, O Muhammad S.A.S) to make haste therewith. It is for us to collect it and to give you ( O Muhammad S.A.S) the ability to recite it(the Quran)’ {V.75:16-17}. which means that Allah will make the prophet S.A.S remember the portion of Quran which was revealed at that time by heart and recite it. The statement of Allah: ‘And then we have recited it to you[O Muhammad S.A.S through Jibril] then follow you its[the Quran’s] recital,Then it is for Us[Allah] to make it clear to you’ {V.75:18-19}, means it is for Allah to make you recite it(and its meaning will be clear itself through your tongue). Afterwards Allah’s Messenger S.A.S used to listen to Jibril whenever he came and after his departure he used to recite it as jibril had recited it.”
