The Revelation of the Qur`aan


The first revelation of the Qur`aan was revealed to the Messenger (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) on the night known as the Night of Decree (Laylatul Qadr) in the month of Ramadhaan.

Evidence for this statement:

Surah al-Qadr 97:1; Surah ad-Dukhaan, 44:3-4; and Surah al-Baqarah, 2:185

When the first of the revelation descended upon the messenger (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam), he was 40 years of age, according to what is commonly stated by the people of knowledge.

The one who descended with the Qur`aan from Allah to the prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) was Jibril (alaihi sallaam).

Proof for this is Allah's saying:

Surah ash-Shur`araa, 26:192 - 195

Jibreel (alaihi sallaam) has been described with many great praiseworthy characteristics:

Surah at-Takweer, 81: 19 - 21; Surah an-Najm, 53: 5 -7; and Surah an-Nahl, 16:102


please see pages 21 - 24 for additional details inshaAllah
