A Pivotal Moment: Muhammad's (PBUH) First Revelation

In the year 610 CE, during the holy month of Ramadan, Muhammad (PBUH) retreated to the Cave of Hira. It was here that he received his first divine revelation from the Angel Gabriel. The encounter, where Angel Gabriel commanded Muhammad (PBUH) to "Read" or "Recite" (Iqra').

Angel Gabriel appeared before him and said, "Recite in the name of your Lord who created - Created man from a clinging substance. Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous - Who taught by the pen - Taught man that which he knew not." (Quran, Surah Al-Alaq, verses 1-5).

This event marked the beginning of Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) prophethood and the revelation of the Holy Quran.

Symbolism and Significance

Jabal An-Noor holds profound symbolism in Islam, representing the dawn of a new era with the advent of Muhammad's mission as the final prophet. It signifies divine guidance and enlightenment, embodying the spiritual journey and profound faith of Muslims worldwide.
