When he was around 40 in 610, he went to meditate in a cave and the angel Gabriel spoke to him for the first time:"Recite in the name of your lord who created, created man from clots of blood! Recite! Your Lord is Most Bountiful One, Who by the pen taught man what he did not know" (from The Koran). In 613 Muhammad shared his revealation (the Qur'an).
