Mohammed receives the Koran

The Archangel Gabriel brings the Word of God to Mohammed.

From the Siyer-i Nebi: The Life of the Prophet: Topkapi.

The illumination of the Siyer-i Nebi by Darir of Erzurum was completed on the 16th January 1595.

Gabriel's face is visible; the other two are veiled, but can be identified by their small and large flame halos.
