Study of the Hadiths of the First Revelation

Mustafa Sultani

In this paper, the author studies two groups of narations regarding the descent of the first revelation. The first group says the Prophet had doubt when the revelation appeared in his heart. The second group argue that the revelation was descended upon the Blessd Prophet in different ways, and the Blessed Prophet had no doubt that what was descended upon him in the cave of Hira ’ was the revelation. Studing the narrations of these two groups, the author does not accept the narration of the first group due to some unknown and unreliable narrators in their chain of narrations. Finally he cocludes that the Blessed Prophet was fully aware of what was descended upon him as the revelation and what inspired him and was uttered by his own words.
