FAMOUS CAVES IN THE HISTORY OF ISLAM

 

Ghar e Hiraa

Jabal al-Noor (The Mountain Of Light)

Jabal al-Noor is situated in the Hejaz region of Saudi Arabia, outside of Makkah. Jabal al-Noor very well known and translates to “Mountain of Light.”

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received His first revelation from ALLAH Almighty through Angel Hazrat Jibraeel AS (Gabriel) in the cave of Hira which is on this mountain. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to climb this mountain often or frequently even before receiving His fist revelation from ALLAH Almighty

Ghar-e-Hira (Cave of Hira)

On Jabal al-Noor is Ghar-e-Hira (Cave of Hira). It is a small cave (ghaar) about 3.5 meters long and over 1.5 meters wide. It is in this cave that our beloved

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) found the solitude and loneliness He needed to meditate. The Prophet (PBUH) would come here to find loneliness in the year 610, when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was 40 years old; He received his first divine revelation from ALLAH Almighty through Angel Hazrat Jibraeel (AS). When

Hazrat Jibraeel (AS), appeared He recited the verse 69:1-5 of Holy Quran,

Recite! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), He has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), Recite! And your Lord is the Most Generous, Who has taught (the writing) by the pen. He has taught man that which he knew not.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) took refuge in Cave of Thawr or sor from the Quraish during their migration to Madinah.

Jabal-e-Thawr (Sor Mountain)

It is in this mountain that the houses the cave (ghaar) where

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) stayed for three days and nights fleeing persecution and harassment from the Quraish during their migration to Madina. The mountain is at the southern end of Makkah and about 760 meters above sea level.

Ghar al-Thawr (Cave of Thawr)

This is the cave in Mountain Thawr (Ghar-e-Sor) that the

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) took refuge. The Quraish people entered the cave because they believed that our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was in there. But since ALLAH Almighty ordered a spider to spin a web from a bush across the entrance of the Ghaar (cave) and ALLAH Almighty also ordered two doves to fly down between the tree and the spider, make a nest and also lay eggs. When the pursuers reached near to the cave’s entrance they thought it was completely impossible that someone might have entered the cave without ruining the web of spider.

Verse 9:40 of Holy Quran

If you do not aid the Prophet – ALLAh has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of two, when they were in the cave and he said to his companion, “Do not grieve; indeed ALLAH is with us.” And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of ALLAH – that is the highest. And ALLAH is Exalted in Might and Wise.
