The Qur'an Revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), the last of Allah's messengers, received the revelation of the Qur'an through a special messenger sent by Allah for this purpose: The Angel Gabriel, who recited to him Allah's exact words.

The revelation of the Qur'an began on Laylat Al-Qadr of Ramadan, after the Prophet Muhammad had passed the 40th year of his life (that is around the year 610), during his seclusion in the cave of Hiraa' on a mountain near Makkah.

The first revelation that Prophet Muhammad received is the first verses from Surat Al-Alaq: please read The Verse below


The Holy Qur'aan Sura: (Chapter) Al-Alaq Verse: 1-19

In The Name Of God, Most Gracious Most Merciful

Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Teacheth man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward? (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). (19)
