Commemorates the day when the words of the Qur'an were first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad

Known as the Qur'an Revelation Day, this holiday Commemorates the day when the words of the Qur'an were first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

The Qur’an is the holy book of Islam, which is believed to be a revelation from Allah.

Nuzul (which roughly translates as revelation) Al-Qur'an takes place on the 17th day of the month of Ramadan.

History of Nuzul Al-Qur’an

The Prophet Muhammad was in a cave on Mount Hira, close to Mecca, when the angel Gabriel appeared and revealed the first five lines of Surh Al-Alaq (chapter 96 of the Qur'an).

Following this first revelation, Muhammad received many revelations of holy text for the rest of his life ( a further twenty three years).

The revelations were recorded by scribes and after the death of Muhammad, they compiled them in texts. The version of these texts that became the Qur'an was established by Caliph Uthman.
