Cave Hira

The first verses of the Qur’an were revealed to Allah’s last Messenger saws while he was in seclusion during the month of Ramadan  in Cave Hira. The photo shows really just the top portion of the mountain in which Cave Hira is sited, and the Cave itself is about a three hour trek, and maybe some spelunking. What boggled the mind during our drive alongside this mountain was the physical distance from what must have been Makkah proper and the endurance required to reach the Cave itself. And it is reported that Khatijah r.a. made this trip herself to carry food for the Prophet saws.Cave Hira
