MAKKAH: Just outside the city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia lies one of Islam’s most important historical sites — a cave where Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) spent time in seclusion, contemplation and self-reflection.
It was here, inside Hira Cave located near the top of a steep hill called Jabal-i-Noor, or Noor Mountain, where Muslims believe God revealed to the Prophet (PBUH) the first verses of the Holy Quran through the angel Jibrail, or Gabriel as he is named in English.
