The Cave of Hira is situated on the Mount Al Noor or you can say Jabl e Noor, about 3 kilometers away from the north east of Makah, on way to Mina. It is a small cave, about 12 feet long and almost 5 feet in width and can be seen from far.
This is the Holy place where our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was honored with prophethood and got his first heavenly revelation of Quran during the month of Ramadan by Hazrat Jibraeel (R.A) to benefit the humanity that had gone astray. The Muslims also prefer to perform Umrah in this month through Low Cost Ramadan Umrah Package 2019.
This is the reason that this Cave holds infinite worth and significance in the history of Islam. Allah Almighty’s apostle Prophet (peace be upon him) used to go for medication to this point. He spent all day and night in the cave view upon the fact of nature, creations around him and their reason. The reason behind going to the cave was the utter blind darkness that had wholly occupied Makah. There were no traces of humanity or civilization among the people and our prophet (peace be upon him) was deeply saddened by the perverse thinking and worship of people. Therefore, he found peace in the loneliness and contemplation.
When Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) reached the age of 40 years and had been meditating for a period of three years, the first revelation to him was by Jibraeel (R.A) which was as follows:
“Recite in the name of your Lord who created. He created the living being from a clot. Recite and your Lord is most worthy, who taught to write with a pen, taught the human being what he knew out” Holy Quran (Alaq 96 1-5)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) was very holy and stimulated. He was shivering with pleasure and fear at the same time. He quickly back to his wife Hazrat Khadija (R.A) and told her about what happened, His adored wife confident Him by saying that he has always kept good relations with his relatives and acquaintances, helped the poor and the needy, served his guests kindly and assisted the deserving calamity-afflicted ones so He should not be afraid of anyone. This gave great courage to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and made him ready for the coming situations.
