Photographer's Note

Kaçkar Dağları ile başlamışken dağlarla devam ediyorum. Hem de tam Ramazanlık... Mekke'de Nur Dağı... Hira Mağarası bu zirvede... Kuranı Kerim'in peygamberimiz Hz. Muhammet'e inmeye başladığı yer... "Oku yaratan Rabbinin adıyla oku, O insanı bir kan pıhtısından yarattı."


Hira Cave
On the way to Mina, two miles from the Holy City of Makkah, on Jabl al-Nur is the Cave of Hira, a small cave about 3.5 meters long and a little over 1.5 meters wide. Here the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) found the solitude he needed to meditate. Here, on 17th of Ramadan (9th lunar month) in 611, he received his first divine revelation.

Read (O Muhammad) ! In the Name of thy Lord who created,

Created man out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood,

Read ! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,

He who taught (the use of the) Pen,

Taught man that which he knew not.
At such times Muhammad (peace be upon him) would retreat from the city to a cave (Hira cave) on al Noor Mountain at the outskirts of Makkah.
( S 96:1-5)
