4.     Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah Al-Ansari while talking about the period of pause in revelation, reported the speech of the Prophet, peace be upon him, “While I was walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the sky. I looked up and saw the same angel, who had visited me at the cave of Hira, sitting on a chair between the sky and the earth. I got scared of him and came back home and said, ‘Wrap me (in blankets).  And then Allah revealed the following Holy Verses (of the Quran) :

‘O you (Muhammad, peace be upon him) enveloped (in garments)! Arise and warn … (up to) … and keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)!’ (V .74 :1-5)

After this, the revelation started coming strongly and frequently in succession one after the other.
