Jabal al-Hira (Arabic: جبل الحراء) is a mountain which lies about two miles from the Kaaba. Near the top is a small cave known as the Cave of Hira (Arabic: غار حراء), which is a little less than 4 meters in length and a little more than 1.5 meters in width. It was here that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) received the first revelations of the Holy Quran during the month of Ramadhan in 610 CE. The mountain is also known as Jabal al-Noor (the Mountain of Light) and Jabal al-Islam (the Mountain of Islam).
