He says that 'each time Jibraaeel (Gabriel) Alaihis-Salaam pressed my bosom with his bosom, I felt so much grave and enormous load that I could not be able to see earth and sky. When he pressed for the last and third time and said 'Read', then the Surah Iqra (96) initiated (automatically) on my tongue with the recitation of Jibraaeel (Gabriel) Alaihis-Salaam'. That is,
Read: in the name of your Lord, who created. Created man from a clot (96:1-2)
Iqra Be-Ismi Rabbi-kalla-zee Khalaq(a). Khala-qal In-saana Min Alaq(in).
This unique hour was of the Talqeen of the Jibraaeel (Gabriel) Ameen Alaihis-Salaam for the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) because the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) is as the likeness of a seed and embryo for the Tree of the Holy Quran which was transferred from the bosom of Hazrat Jibraaeel (Gabriel) Alaihis-Salaam to the blessed bosom of the Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and that Seed of Quran germinated into the Tree of Quran and then the Holy Quran initiated and became Current on his blessed tongue. However, due to the enormity and heaviness of the Quran, he became anxious and when he returned to his house, he said to Hazrat Khadeeja Radhi-ya-Allahu Ta-aala Anha that 'put a blanket over me, put a blanked over me'. Since, it is always a rule that the eyes of a person temporarily feel flash blindness when are exposed to flash light of high intensity and in order to stop this intensity, he takes the protection of some veil and cover; therefore, he also did the same thing and because of his wrapping in cover and raiment of that blanket, he was addressed with the title of 'Muzzammil' in the next event:
O you wrapped up in your raiment (in order to cover against the intensity and enormity of the Noor of Quran)! Keep vigil the night long, save a little. And half thereof, or abate a little thereof. Or add (a little) thereto and chant the Quran in measure (73:1-2-3-4)
In the same Surah Al-Muzzammil this has come:
Recite, then, of the Quran that which is easy for you (73:20)
This is the Talqeen of reading that much Quran which is easy for a person who recites through the tongue of Nasoot every night in Tahajud, as per his Taufeeq, half night or less or more than it after leaving his bed. This is mentioning of routine nights but Allah Almighty has mentioned a special night in the Quran known as Laila Tul Qadr (Night of Power) in which the whole Quran was sent down all together.
And that is the night of the Realm of Nasoot that in which the Malakooti and Spiritual Muzzammil of the Qalb and Ruh after casting off the raiment of Nafs and earthly body, reads the Quran with the tongue of the Qalb and Ruh, then the Noor of the Quran is displayed with Malakooti (of Malakoot) and Roohani (Spiritual) power and glory and that Noor becomes the victuals of the angles and spirits and the Angels and spirits fall over this Qalb which is full and rich with this Quranic Noor in a way as honey bees fall over their hive and get their feed. This is that Power of Quran regarding which the Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has said that 'one glory of my reception of the Quran is such that when it is delivered to me, such a sound is heard by me which resembles the humming sound of honey bees'. In short, that descent of the Noble Quran is of the Night of Qadr (Power) upon the Dawat and recital of which the Angels and spirits descend and appear before the reader and one rank and degree of this one night is superior to many thousands other months.
Allah Almighty says: Lo! We revealed it on te Night of Power. Ah, what will convey unto you what the Night of Power is! The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. The Angels and the Spirit descend therein, by the permission of their Lord, with all decrees (97:1-2-3-4)
Thus, the way and manner of reading the Quran usually and with the Outward body and tongue should be that which has been mentioned in the Surah Al Muzzammil. However, special recitation and the power of descent of the Noble Quran is that which has been mentioned in the Surah Al Qadr. In addition, the Sawaab and Degree of the Special Recitation of the Quran is seventy thousand times higher than usual recitation of the Quran. That is, the former is reciting the Quran with common recitation for half a night whereas the recitation of the special night is superior to thousands of months. Now we make ordinary nights from this special night.
