Cave of Hira is three km away in the north-east of the city of Mecca. It is opposite to the famous
mountain of Jabal-al-Shabeer. The cave is about 3.6 m long and 1.60 m wide. Before prophethood the
Holy prophet of Islam used to worship Allah here for several days and nights. The first revelation was
also sent upon you in the cave of Hira.

Read! (O Prophet) in the name of your Allah who created man with a piece of clotted blood. Read! And
your God is very gracious who has taught man knowledge with the pen. The knowledge that was
previously unknown to him.

It was 27th of Ramadan and Prophet (P.B.U.M) was forty years of age. According to Ibn-e-Hazam
Prophet used to go there with the will of Allah as you (P.B.U.H) had never seen anyone go there whom
you could have followed. At present people who go to Mecca for the pilgrimage visit the Cave of Hira.
