Narrated/Authority of Jabir bin Abdullah Al-Ansari
While talking about the period of pause in revelation, reported the speech of the Prophet (saw), "While I was walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the sky. I looked up and saw the same angel, who had visited me at the cave of Hira, sitting on a chair between the sky and the earth. I got scared of him and came back and said, 'Wrap me (in blankets).' And then Allah (swt) revealed the following Holy Verses (of the Quran): 'O you (Muhammad [saw]) enveloped (in garments)! Arise and warn... (up to) ...and keep away from Ar-Rujz (the idols)!' (V.74:1-5) After this, the revelation started coming strongly and frequently in succession one after the other."
