In what month was the Quran revealed?On one of his (saws) visits to the cave, Angel Gibrael (as) came to him. At first, the Prophet (saws) was scared but he soon realized that there was no harm that would come to him. Angel Gibreal came to the Prophet to inform him that Allah had chosen him to be his Messenger. This happened during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan.
What was the first revelation?The first revelation from Allah (swt) through the Angel Gibreal to Prophet Mohamed (saws) was the first five verses of Surah (chapter) Al-Alaq:
"Iqra bismi rabbikalla dhi khalaq. Khalaqal insana min alaq. Iqra wa rabtukal alrram. Alladhi 'allama bil qalam. 'Allamal insana malam ya’lam, ""Read in the name of your Lord who created, created man from a clot. Read, for your Lord is mostGenerous, Who teaches by means of the pen, teaches man what he does not know." (96: 1-5)

"How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You.
I bear witness that None has the right to be worshipped except You.
I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance."
سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك

If any of this information was good and true, know that it comes from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.
If there are mistakes we ask for Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy.
