Revelation and Inspiration

How did the revelation descend upon the prophets? Was there any revelation without a means? Does the inspiration come directly or through a means? The revelation is descended upon a Messenger through an angel. Gabriel was the means of the revelation. He brought the word of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Sometimes Gabriel was visible; and on occasion he invisibly breathed the revelation into Prophet’s heart. The revelation without any means was that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) heard the word of Allah in person in the night of Mi’raj….
