Slept in caves to get a clear mind
This may be a reference to Priest being in the presence of prophet Muhammad.
“The history of meditation in Islam begins with the prophet Muhammad. While staying in the city of Mecca, he would visit a nearby mountain and find a cave there. He would meditate in the cave, seeking knowledge, understanding and closeness with Allah. It was during these meditations that he started to receive the revelations of the Quran.”
