Receiving Revelation in the Seclusion of the Tent

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

اللهم صلى على سيدنا ومولانا محمد وبارك وسلم وصلى عليه

I have deduced from certain narrations of the Prophet’s صلى الله عليه وسلم Sirah that he used to receive divine revelation and inspiration usually in a state of seclusion or while enveloped in some sort of wrap or sheet, perhaps to better concentrate on the reception of that Wahi free of any Earthly distraction. This is apparently the basis for the Prophet’s two attributive names attested to in the Quran, al-Muzzammil and al-Muddaththir.

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم used to sit inside a

قُبَّةٍ حَمْرَاءَ مِنْ أَدَمٍ

red leather tent

and sayyidina Awf b. Malik al-Ashja’i رضى الله عنه narrates that during the expedition of Tabuk the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was in a leather tent and personally gave him permission to enter inside, and then disclosed to him six prophecies portending the Hour.
