# Ghar e Hiraa- Jabl e Noor


In the name of Allaah
most Merciful and Beneficent
Assalam o Alaikum Respected Audience
Thanks to the Almighty Allaah for
blessing us with the month of Ramadan. The most respected personality due to
whom we are blessed with this month, the sacred and blessed foots of that
personality wherever they reached, all these places are sacred as well. I am
present in the program “Meray Sarkaar kay Qadam Jahaan Pauhanchay” [where feet
of my Beloved Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Lahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] reached]. Most
of the places which were visited by our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ most of such places have been
discussed and mentioned in Qur’aan and Ahadees. Today you will be listening
first program with the reference of Qur’aanic Verses and Ahadees. You will be
told about those sacred places that were visited by Prophet Muhammad today’s first program is about Ghar-e-
Hira (Cave Hira) and Jabl-e-Noor (mountain of Light). Makkah Mukaramaa is a
famous city; this is the city which has the honor of having the first House of Almighty
Allaah i.e. Khana e Kaaba, Baiet Ul laah. From Makkah towards Eastern side at
about the distance of 3 miles there is a mountain called “Jabl-e-Noor”. Jabl
means mountain and Noor is its name, you will also listen that what is the
reason behind this name. The path towards this cave on the mountain is a steep
slope. The height of the mountain is about 2000 feet; it is not easier for
everyone to climb the mountain. When one climbs up the top of the mountain
there is a sharp slope of approximately 12 feet, there lies a very narrow
passage from which a normal person cannot pass easily. On the entrance of the
cave if you look at it carefully it is not possible to pass easily as this is a
very narrow passage. Cave is a room like structure formed naturally in the mountains.
Another feature of this cave is also that it faces directly towards Kaabatul laah,
one may say that this cave is sitting in kneeling position with respect. When
our Holy Prophet ﷺ
was at the age of 40 (lunar) years, he used to come and stay in this cave for
several days. He ﷺ used to
bring some food (Satu: flour of brown grains) with him, sometimes Hazrat
Ummul Mu’ mineen Saiyyidatunaa Khadeejatul Kubraa [Radiyal Laahu ‘Anhaa] provided him food. Prophet [Sallal Laahu
Alaiehi Wa Sallam] used to stay here day & night and used to worship
Almighty Allaah. Hazrat Jibraeel [Alaiehis Salaam] came to this cave with the
first revelation. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ himself Noor (light) and Qur’aan also
light, so on the mountain where first revelation revealed was named as
Jabl-e-Noor. When pilgrims visit Minaa, this mountain is located at the left
hand on the way towards Minaa. Here Hazrat Jibraeel [Alaiehis Salaam] brought
first revelation to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ; this first revelation is mentioned in
Holy Qur’aan as “”Read in the name of Allaah who created you”.  The Holy Qur’aan was revealed at that place on
Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ; in this regard this place cave Hira kissed the feet of
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ uncountable times. Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ climbed that
mountain and cave several times. We can say that Makkah has importance in
places all over the world but this is the special place where declaration of
Prophet-hood of Muhammad ﷺ was honored for the first time. After returning from
this place, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ declared his prophet-hood, adjacent to this
mountain is the Jabl-e-Abu Qubais. City of Makkah is encircled by mountains.
Among these mountains Jabl-e-Noor has a special importance due to the Cave
Hira, believers visit this mountain with love and passion to see the place
where Qur’aan was first time revealed on the Beloved Prophet ﷺ. May Allaah  Kareem bless us to visit and see this sacred
place [Aameen]…..excerpt from the TV PROGRAM- by Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi
