When and How Angel Gabriel appeared to Muhammed ﷺ on second time


Appearance of Angel Gabriel

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah Al-Ansari (while talking about the period of pause in revelation  reporting the speech of the Prophet:
“While I was walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the sky. I looked up and saw the same angel (i.e. Angel Gabriel) who had visited me at the cave of Hira’ sitting on a chair between the sky and the earth. I got afraid of him and came back home and said, ‘Wrap me (in blankets).’ And then Allah revealed the following Holy Verses (of Quran): ‘O you (i.e. Muhammad)! wrapped up in garments!’ Arise and warn (the people against Allah’s Punishment),… up to ‘and desert the idols.’ (74.1-5) After this the revelation started coming strongly, frequently and regularly.”

Jabir b. ‘Abdullah al-Ansari who was one of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) reported The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) told about the intermission of revelation and narrated While I was walking I heard a voice from the sky, and raising my head I saw the angel (i.e. angel Gabriel) who had come to me in Hira’, sitting on a Throne between heaven and earth I was terror-stricken on that account and came back (to my family) and said:

Wrap me up, wrap me up! So they wrapped me up, and the Blessed and Most Exalted Allah sent down:” You who are shrouded, arise and deliver warning, your Lord magnify, your clothes cleanse, and defilement shun,” and” defilement” means idols; and then the revelation was followed continuously.

Yahya reported:

Jabir said: I am narrating to you what was narrated to us by the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). He said: I stayed in Hira’ for one month and when my stay was completed, I come down and went into the heart of the valley. Somebody called me aloud. I looked in front of me, behind me, on the right of my side and on my left, but I did not see any body. I was again called and I looked about but saw nothing. I was called again and raised my head, and there on the Throne in the open atmosphere he, i. e. Angel Gabriel (peace be upon him) was sitting. I began to tremble on account of fear. I came to Khadija and said: Wrap me up. They wrapped me up and threw water on me and Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, sent down this: you who are shrouded! arise and deliver warning, your Lord magnify, your clothes cleanse.”
