Sahih Al Bukhari

Hadith 2

Narrated Abdullah ibn Yusuf who said, Malik informed me from Hisham ibn Urwah, from Aishah the mother of the believers رضي الله عنها that:

Al Harith ibn Hisham asked the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, “O Messenger of Allah, how does revelation come to you?” The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Revelation comes to me like the ringing of a bell, and this is the severest on me. Then it passes from me after I have grasped what it says. And revelation comes to me from an angel in the form of a man. He talks to me and I grasp what he says.”

Aishah رضي الله عنها said, “Surely I saw revelation descending upon him on a very cold day. Then it passed him and, indeed, sweat was dripping from his forehead.”
