The Splitting of the Moon

An Undeniable Miracle of God: The Splitting of the Moon

Many people are talking about this topic. Did the moon really split? If it did really split, is there any non-biased evidence supporting the claim? God willing, all these questions will be answered in this very post, just keep reading on. 

Dr. Zaghloul El-Naggar, a Muslim scholar and author, was carrying out a sermon in a university in Britain where he mentioned the splitting of the moon being recently proved.

Before carrying on any further, let us first know exactly what happened approximately 1400 years back with the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and what the Noble Qur'an mentions with regards to the splitting of the moon. Abdullah bin Masoud, a companion of the Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him), narrated, "We were along with God's Messenger at Mina, that moon was split up into two. One of its parts was behind the mountain and the other one was on this side of the mountain. God's Messenger said to us, "Bear witness to this."

The Noble Qur'an states in the 54th chapter, "The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder. And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say, "This is continuous magic." They belied and followed their own lusts. And every matter will be settled. And indeed there has come to them news (in this Qur'an) wherein there is (enough warning) to check (them from evil); Perfect wisdom (this Qur'an), but (the preaching of) warners benefit them not, so (O Muhammad) withdraw from them..." [54:1-6]

It is believed that before the emigration to Medina, the people of Mecca asked the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to show them a miracle. He asked them what miracle they wanted to observe and they replied by saying they wanted him to split the moon. Raising his hand, the Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) supplicated the Almighty and the moon was split into two halves that a mountain was visible between them.  

The King of India, Chakrawati Farmas, was a witness to the event. A historical Indian manuscript reports that there is a very old tradition in Malabar, South-West Coast of India, that Chakrawati Farmas, one of their kings had observed the splitting of the moon, the celebrated miracle of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) at Mecca, and learning, on inquiry, that there was a prediction of the coming of a messenger of God from Arabia, he appointed his son as regent and set out to meet him. He embraced Islam at the hands of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), and when returning home, at the direction of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), died at the port of Zafar. This information is in an Indian manuscript kept in the "India Office Library", which houses a number of other details about King Chakrawati Farmas. In addition, he is also mentioned in a number of Hadîths.  

Anyway, Dr. Zaghloul El-Naggar, as we have mentioned previously, was carrying out a sermon discussing the splitting of the moon. He mentioned a British Muslim brother, Dawud Musa. While he was searching for a religion, a friend gave him a copy of the Noble Qur'an translated in English. He opened it and came across Sûratul-Qamar and began reading. "The Hour has drawn nearer and the moon has been cleft asunder," he read, then looked at this and said, "The moon has split?!" He then stopped reading the Noble Qur'an and did not open it again.

One day, while watching a program on BBC, the broadcaster was talking with three American scientists, blaming America for spending billions of dollars on space projects when millions are suffering from poverty. The scientists strived to explain why it is vital to go into space exploration. As the conversation developed, the scientists came to discuss the most expensive trip to the moon, which costed approximately 100 billion dollars. The broadcaster criticized them, saying, "So to put the American flag on the moon, you spent this much money?!"

The scientists explained that this much money was spent because they were trying to study the internal structure of the moon to see what similarities it has with the Earth. In addition, they said that they were surprised to find what they referred to as 'a belt of rocks' that goes from the surface of the moon right to the inner depths.

After sharing this information with their geologists, who were also surprised, they concluded that this could not have been possible unless the moon was once split and resealed. The rocks on the belt are but a result of the impact during the time that the two halves of the moon recombined with one another.

Watching this, brother Dawud sprang off his seat, screaming, "This is Muhammad's miracle which occurred more than 1400 years ago, and now the Americans are spending billions of dollars to prove it to the Muslims." He then added, "This must surely be a true religion." And so, where once Sûratul-Qamar was a cause for him disbelieving and turning away from Islam, it was now the reason for his embracing Islam.

There is so many controversy about the moon on the internet. For instance, moon landing was fake and the pictures taken were doctored.
Then we have Neil Armstrong convert to Muslim after coming back from the moon.
And there's even claim about the scars on the moon is too short to proof the moon was split before.

Will it be just rumors? Curious to know what you guys think about them.

Thanks!

Even if the moon landing was fake, that has nothing to do with the splitting of the moon. They have space telescopes. Secondly, NASA hates Islam. Surely, they would not forge anything that would cause people to embrace Islam. They even refused to show true evidence proving Islam to be true many times, let alone they forge something for the benefit of Islam. :P

I hope oneday Muslim will have their own expedition to the moon or co-operating with some neutral organizations who prioritize on finding the truth.

Doubt that the landing is fake
And I don't believe Neil Armstrong became a Muslim
Thanks about that info.

Yes, some say Neil Armstrong did not officially become a Muslim whereas others say it was confirmed. Of course, only God knows in the end.

Apparently , Dr. Zaghloul El-Naggar used the picture to circulate a hoax that this proved that the moon did split? And that many NASA scientists have also said that this does not prove that the moon did split?
:( Everything is so controversial nowadays
