Below, you'll see that it is the Bible that considers the moon Holy, not the Quran.

  

  

It's funny how some anti-Islamics claim that Muslims worship a moon god when Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran directly refuted this:  "Among His Signs are the Night and the Day, and the Sun and the Moon. Adore not the sun and the moon, but adore God, Who created them, if it is Him ye wish to serve.  (The Noble Quran, 41:37)"

Another great response by a Muslim brother to this false lie.

The New Testament itself proves that we don't have to call GOD as "Yahweh" in all languages.

Is Allah really a "moon god"?

Muslims do not believe in worshiping idols or moon Gods.  Nor any Muslim believes that the reason why the Crescent is the Muslims' symbol on their flag is because Muhammad (peace be upon him) had cut the moon in half with his sword.  That is a fabricated lie about Muhammad and Islam.  The reason why the Crescent is the symbol on our flag is because we start our fasting month "Ramadan" when the Crescent appears, and we end that month when the full moon appears after 30 or 31 days of the Crescent's appearance.  The Crescent is not a holy symbol.   Islam doesn't believe in holy idols or symbols to be worshiped!  The only holy thing in this world to Muslims is the Noble Quran, GOD's Revelations and Holy Scripture to us.  No person is holy and no image nor idol nor symbol is holy either:

"They ask thee Concerning the New Moons.   Say:  They are but signs To mark fixed periods of time In (the affairs of) men, And for Pilgrimage.  It is no virtue if ye enter Your houses from the back:  It is virtue if ye fear Allah.  Enter houses Through the proper doors:  And fear Allah:  That ye may prosper.  (The Noble Quran, 2:189)"

Note on Noble Verse 2:189:  The English translator wrote "enter Your houses from the back".  This is a mistranslation, because in Arabic it says: "taato AL-BOUOTA min thohooriha", which literally means "enter THE HOUSES from the back". 

So the Noble Verse should read as:

"They ask thee Concerning the New Moons.  Say:   They are but signs To mark fixed periods of time In (the affairs of) men, And for Pilgrimage.  It is no virtue if ye enter the houses from the back:  It is virtue if ye fear Allah.  Enter houses Through the proper doors:  And fear Allah:   That ye may prosper.  (The Noble Quran, 2:189)"

But anyway, as we clearly see in the Noble Verse, moon is nothing but a tool used by the Muslims.  It is not GOD Almighty to us, nor do we use it in our worship.

  

  
The Bible also talks about New Moons, but considers them Holy:

1 Chronicles 23:31 They must also give thanks and sing praises when sacrifices are offered on each Sabbath, as well as during New Moon Festivals and other religious feasts. There must always be enough Levites on duty at the temple to do everything that needs to be done.

Numbers 10:10 During the celebration of the New Moon Festival and other religious festivals, sound the trumpets while you offer sacrifices. This will be a reminder that I am the LORD your God.

1 Samuel 20:5 David answered: Tomorrow is the New Moon Festival, and I'm supposed to eat dinner with your father. But instead, I'll hide in a field until the evening of the next day.

1 Samuel 20:18 After this Jonathan said: Tomorrow is the New Moon Festival, and people will wonder where you are, because your place will be empty.

The Jews even celebrated the new moon with their "Festivals" as these verses, and many more in the Bible, clearly state!  Does this now mean that the Jews worship the new moon?
