2. Narrated ‘Aishah’, the mother of the faithful believers: Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon him, “O Allah’s Messenger! How is the Divine Revelation revealed to you?” Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon him, replied, “Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Revelation is the hardest of all and then this state passes off after I have grasped what is revealed. Sometimes the angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says.” Aishah added: Verily I saw the Prophet, peace be upon him, being inspired (Divinely) and (noticed) the sweat dropping from his forehead on a very cold day as the Revelation was over.
