CHAPTER 30

THE BELIEF CONCERNING THE MANNER OF THE DESCENT OF REVELATION (nuzulu'1-wahy) FROM ALLAH IN THE SHAPE OF BOOKS, COMMANDS (al-amr) AND PROHIBITIONS (an-nahy)

Says the Shaykh Abu Ja'far: Our belief concerning this is that there is a tablet between the two eyes of Israfil. Whenever Allah wishes to speak by way of revelation, the Tablet comes in contact with the forehead of Israfil, then he looks into it and reads what is in it. Israfil would then convey it to Mikail and he in turn would convey it to Gabriel, and the angel Gabriel, would convey it to the prophets, on whom be peace.

And as for the fainting fit which would come upon the Prophet, it used to take place at the time of Allahs addressing him by reason whereof he would also feel a heaviness and perspire. But Gabriel, on account of respect for the Prophet, would never enter his presence until he sought permission, and he used to sit before him (the Prophet) in the manner of a slave.
