According to Muslims, God taught the prayer to him as a protection from injuries in war, instead of hard armor.
Prophet Mohammed used hard and heavy armor for protecting his body in the war. Because of the tightness of his armor, his body was injured.
According to Islamic Traditions, during the war, the angel Jibra'il (Gabriel) came and brought him a message from God, teaching prayer to Prophet Muhammad to protect him from bad events. Jibra'il said: O Muhammad! Your God conveys his salutations to you and has said to take this coat of armor and to recite it as this is a protection for you and your Ummah.The prayer became his armor to protect him against injuries. The name of the prayer was taken from Muhammads heavy armor (Jawshan) in the battle. Is a supplication cited from the Prophet. The supplication includes 100 sections containing 1001 names and attributes of God. The supplication was revealed to the Prophet by Jabra'il (Gabriel).
