Roerich Nicholas. Mohammed the Prophet. Art print on canvas
Highly interesting are the words of At-Tabari about the prophetic mission of Mohammed (“History of Prophets and Kings”): “The revelation of the divine messenger began with impartations of truth, which came to him as the morning glow. Then he was filled with the desire for solitude and remained in the cave on Mount Hira. And so to him came the eternal True One and said, ‘Mohammed, thou art god’s messenger.’ “ ‘I knelt,’ God’s messenger says, ‘and I waited. Then I slowly left. My heart was trembling. I came to Hadija and said to enwrap me, enwrap me, and my fear left. And He came again and said to me: “Mohammed, I am Gabriel, and thou art the Messenger of God.” …’ ” The exclamation “Enwrap me” gives authentic occult character to the narrative.
