History of Hira Cave and Tsur Cave
Hira Cave is located about two miles from the Grand Mosque. This cave has a length of about 4 meters and a width of 1.5 meters. In this place the Prophet Muhammad SAW received the first revelations from the Koran in the month of Ramadan 610 AD.Meanwhile in the Cave of Tsur, Rasulullah SAW and his friend Abu Bakr hid for three days from the pursuit of the Quraysh who were hostile to the Prophet at that time.
In order to protect the Messenger of Allah and Abu Bakr, Allah Almighty told spiders to spin webs at the entrance of the cave. This made the Quraysh deceived because it was impossible for the cave entered by humans to be covered by spider webs.This is also a strategy to trick the enemies of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) into the Cave of Tsur and find them.
