19 Proofs of Moon Splitting - A Miracle of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Moon Splitting (19 Proofs) -A Miracle of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Among many miracles of Prophet Mohammad (peace and blessings be upon him-salla Allahu alayhe wa sallam) one is splitting of the moon.  It was Narrated by Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him):  “The people of Mecca asked Allah’s Apostle to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hiram’ mountain.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 208)”  

Although it was a miracle for the eyes to see but still this fact can be proved in number of ways today: 

1)    Scientific evidence from NASA photos and NASA Space Scientists interviews. 
2)  Kalki Purana Prophecy "Kalki will split the moon" & Recorded Historical Events in Hind ( Cheraman Perumal , the king of Kodungallur, Kerala, India far place from Arabia 
3)   Bhavishya Purana - Raja Bhoj, the Indian king of Dhar in Madhya Pradesh 
4)   Prophesised in Sacred Hindu Scriptures Bhavish Puran - Raja Bhoj saw Moon split
5)   Prophesised in Sacred Hindu scriptures - Kalki Puran -  Kalki will split the moon
6)   Moon Split Mentioned in the Quran (Last Testament from God)
7)   Authentic Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and recorded history in Arabia
8)   A Prophet Like Moses (Deuteronomy 18:18) Like Moses (PBUH) splitted the red sea with the permission of Allah Allmighty so did Muhammad (PBUH) splitted the moon with the permission of ALLAH Allmighty http://neurotherapy-of-christian-brain.blogspot.com/2012/05/bible-prophecies-of-muhammad-peace-and.html
9)   The moon shall be confounded -Prophesy in Isaiah 24:23 about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

11)   Following the legacy of Abraham (PBUH) - Broke ALL idols 
12)    Lapetus Saturn's moon split into two

13) The Mayans recorded the miracle and also a broad sweeping change of the calendars of Copan, China and Babylon
14) In China - An old building written on it that it was built in the year in which a great heavenly event has occured and it was splitting of the moon in two halves.
15) Ancient Persian Calendar year 1 itself begins with the event of moon split  
16) Persian and Madrid Manuscript records
17) Moon Split in China and famous Chinese tradition of Moon cakes split in half before eating

A Lunar Rille 

Credit: Apollo 10NASA Explanation: What could cause a long indentation on the Moon? First discovered over 200 years ago with a small telescope, rilles (rhymes with pills) appear all over the Moon. Three types of rilles are now recognized: 

The Moon cracked , says NASA & The Quran

sinuous rilles, which have many meandering curves, 
arcuate rilles which form sweeping arcs, and 
straight rilles, like Ariadaeus Rille pictured above. 
Long rilles such as Ariadaeus Rille extend for hundreds of kilometers. 

The Moon cracked , says NASA & The Quran ( part 1 )

Sinuous rilles are now thought to be remnants of ancient lava flows, but the origins of arcuate and linear rilles are still a topic of research
A Picture from NASA: 2002 October 29
The above linear rille was photographed by the Apollo 10 crew in 1969 during their historic approach to only 14-kilometers above the lunar surface.

Two months later, Apollo 11, incorporating much knowledge gained from Apollo 10, landed on the Moon.   
This is What God told us more than 1400 years ago: In the Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful((The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.))  Sura 54:1(Al-Qamar( The Moon)) This lead a British citizen to embrace Islam after he saw a TV program by NASA. He read Quran and thought that moon splitting was nonsense. But he revised  his stand after seeing the program.
In 1978 Mr. Dawud (David) Musa Pidcock was destined by Allah's Will to watch a program about space journeys, inwhich the well-known British announcer James Burke, received threeof the American spacescientists.
During the debate, the announcer kept criticizing the immoderate spending by NASA (millions of Dollars) on space projects, while there are millions of people on earth suffering from starvation, diseases and ignorance.
The answer of the space experts came to 
assert that it was these journeys that made it feasible to develop important technology applied in medical diagnosis and treatment, industry, agriculture, and many other fields. During this debate, they referred to the first time that a human being landed on the surface of the moon, and how this trip cost more than $100 million dollars. The scientists went on to say that this journey proved a scientific fact, that if they had  spent several times as much as they did to convince people with it, no body would have believed them. They did "Thumper" Experiments which placed explosive charges on moon's surface and the seismic result indicate that "Moon was split at some point and joined together again." This is a fact that the moon had  been split a long time ago and rejoined, and there is a lot of concrete evidence on the  surface of the moon to prove this.   
Mr. Pidcock went on to say : “ When I heard this , I jumped off my chair , and said this is a 

miracle which took place fourteen hundred years ago to support Muhammad , and the  Qur'an narrates it in such a detailed way . After this long period and during the age of science and 
technology, Allah employs people (non-Muslims) who spent all this money for nothing but to prove that this miracle had actually happened. Then, I said to myself, this must be the true religion, and I went back to the translation of the meanings of the Qur'an, reading it eagerly. It was these verses at the opening of surat al-Qamar that lie behind my reversion to Islam.” http://www.nusrah.com//media/newsletter/islamica-201004-whymuhammad.pdf

Latest discoveries in Public News papers : 

Evidence of a highly fractured lunar interior just below the surface http://www.foxnews.com/science/2012/12/05/detailed-gravity-maps-moon-reveal-highly-beaten-up-interior-surprising/

The moon is "far more broken up and shattered than we've seen before," said mission chief scientist Maria Zuber of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 
Fracturing extended deep into the crust and may have penetrated the mantle, scientists said. The maps also exposed numerous lunar features in greater detail than before including volcanoes, basins and craters. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/05/moons-interior-crust-thin-gravity-map_n_2245482.html#slide=659826

"Do you need a telescope to see these things?
Yes, you really need a telescope to see the details in craters. You certainly need magnification for you to see rills (also called rilles or clefts). Rills look like dried up riverbeds and can be either straight or irregular. The irregular rills were probably created by flowing lava behaving like water and moving like a stream. The straight rills are probably faults like those on Earth - formed when a part of the surface collapsed on one side of the rill, leaving a cliff face. They are fairly common on maria because the basalt plains of the maria are only a few meters thick (but some may be thicker). Maria, however, are very wide. The crust under them easily deforms causing the surface to crack and sink, producing a fault that looks like a straight rill."  http://www.synapses.co.uk/astro/moon3.html

"The discovery that the Moon's crust is deeply fractured came from a pair of small probes that comprise NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory, or GRAIL, mission.

The identical spacecraft have been following each other around the Moon for nearly a year.

Scientists have been monitoring the distance between the two, which changes slightly as they fly over denser regions of the moon.

The gravitational pull of the additional lunar mass causes first the leading probe and then the other one to speed up, altering the gap between them.

The data, assembled into the first detailed gravity maps of the moon, reveal that asteroids and comets cratered the surface and fractured the crust, possibly all the way down to the mantle.

The research is published in this week's Science journal."

Allah Almighty Said: "We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"
Science has confirmed that the moon did indeed crack as Allah Almighty mentioned in the Noble Quran 1500 years ago.  There are also ample eye witnesses that saw the moon split in half, which was a Sign of Prophethood proving Prophet Muhammad's Truthfulness from Allah Almighty.  Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran did not lie, nor did His Messenger and our beloved and cherished, Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. http://www.answering-christianity.com/moon_split.htm?search=Select+a+Search%3A&text_field=moon+split

A Historical Perspective
i) The Moon Split in India The Splitting of the Moon was seen by two rulers in India, namely Cheraman Perumal of Kodungallur, Kerala and;
ii) Raja Bhoj of Dhar, Madhya Pradesh.
Both of them investigated the phenomenon and traced it to the promised last Avatar to be born in Arabia. They identified him with the last Messenger, the last Prophet of God, got in touch with him and accepted Islam! 

2)    Recorded Historical Events in Hind (India) far place from Arabia
 By the Historical event Indian King of Kerala that witnessed it and had a journey to the Arab peninsula to meet the Prophet and be a Muslim. The journey he never came back from. He died on his way back in the Arab peninsula and was buried there. His descendents who remained faithful to their original religion allowed a mosque to be built in their kingdom and did not interfere with Muslims. Also they still exist and witness the truth of the story. 

Kalki Purana and Cheraman Perumal (King of Kerala)
It is mentioned in Kalki Purana that Kalki will split the moon. This prophecy came to be fulfilled during the time of Prophet Muhammad (s) when he split the moon into two. 
This was observed by Cheraman Perumal, the Indian king of Kodungallur in KeralaKerala is a state of India.  The state stretches for 360 miles along the Malabar Coast on the southwestern side of the Indian peninsula. He later accepted Islam. Cheraman Perumal became the first Indian to accept Islam.

 Incident of Cheraman Perumal , the king of Kodungallur, Kerala, India in 612-632 CE, was the first Indian to accept Islam. Many historians have recorded this fact in their writings. He was the king of Muzuris (now Kodungallur) in Malabar. He was the last Chera king of the First Chera Empire. 
In those days, the senior most of the rulers of Kerala was called as Cheraman Perumal
So, Cheraman Perumal was a title of the king and not his name, his name was Chakrawati Farmas. However, he is more popularly remembered in history as Cheraman Perumal. Chakrawati Farmas (Cheraman Perumal) is recorded to have seen the moon split. The incident relating to Chakrawati Farmas is documented in an old manuscript kept at the India Office Library, London, reference number: Arabic, 2807, 152-173. It was quoted in the book ‘Muhammad Rasulullah’, by M. Hamidullah: “A group of Muslim merchants passing by Malabar on their way to China spoke to the king about how God had supported the Arabian prophet with the miracle of the splitting of the moon. The shocked king said he had seen it with his own eyes as well, deputized his son, and left for Arabia to meet the Prophet in person. He embraced Islam at the hand of the Prophet.” Prophet Muhammad (s) named him Tajuddin (the crown of faith). A tradition of the Holy Prophet (s) has also been reported from one of the companions, Abu Saeed al-Khudri, regarding the arrival of Cheraman Perumal, "A king from India presented the Messenger of God with a bottle of pickle that had ginger in it. The Holy Prophet distributed it among his companions. I also received a piece to eat." (Hakim reports in 'Al Musthadrak) [Hadees, Kitab al Mustadrak Saheehain by Al Imam Al Hafiz Abi Abdillah Al Hakim, Volume-4, Chapter-33, Kitabul Ath’ama, Page-241]
                   Malik bin Dinar, a companion of Prophet Muhammad (s), is famous for being the first to bring Islam to India. The incident of the Splitting of the Moon, a miracle performed by Prophet Muhammad (s), took place in 617 CE. Soon afterwards in 617 CE itself Malik bin Dinar and 12 of his trade associates landed in Kerala. The Arabs discussed with Cheraman Perumal, they described the tenets of Islam and talked about Prophet Muhammad (s). The king wanted to know if there was any proof that this person is indeed a prophet. The traders described the miracle of the splitting of the moon into two, performed by Prophet Muhammad (s). The king, who had himself witnessed the event, then summoned his Hindu astrologers who consulted their almanacs and reported a similar phenomenon recorded by them. The king forthwith abdicated his throne and left with Malik bin Dinar for Arabia where it is chronicled that he met Prophet Muhammad (s) and performed the famous Last Hajj with him. On his journey back, he died at Salalah in Oman, where his grave is a famous landmark today. Before his death, he had handed over to Malik bin Dinar, several letters addressed to the ruler of Kodungallur (then known as Muzuris) and other Kerala kings, seeking their help to propagate the tenets of Islam and build masjids. Cheraman Masjid is believed to be the first masjid in India built in 629 CE at Kodungallur by Malik bin Dinar and it is the second oldest Juma masjid in the world next only to the Prophet’s Masjid in Madinah. Malik bin Dinar and others also built several other masjids in Malabar. A historical document about the incident of Cheraman Perumal is a manuscript found in Cheraman Masjid written by Habib bin Dinar. It proves Cheraman Perumal went to Makkah. 
The people of Lakshadweep and the Moplas [Mapillais] from the Calicut province of Kerala are converts from those days. 
Umar Qazi’s poem on Cheraman Perumal. Umar Qazi was well aware of the story of Cheraman Perumal – the first Indian to accept Islam. He narrates it thus in one of his poems inscribed on the walls of Ponnani Juma MasjidKodungallur was a center of festivals established by the great Emperor Cheraman Perumal …..
The major part of all the minor kingdoms were under his rule …
As such, one day he saw he saw the moon split into two (a miracle of Holy Prophet performed in
Arabia) on a clear cloudless night ….

As a result the love for Holy Prophet grew in his heart and he became the earliest Muslim of this nation….[2] 

3)    Bhavishya Purana and Raja Bhoj 
There is an interesting information in Bhavishya Purana that Mahaamad (Muhammad) would appear to Raja Bhoj, and say that he would establish the religion of truth, by the command of Ishwar i.e. God. This prophecy too came to be fulfilled during the time of Prophet Muhammad (s), when he split the moon into two. Raja Bhoj, the Indian king of Dhar in Madhya Pradesh, saw this from his palace. He too accepted Islam. 
Raja Bhoj, the king of Dhar, Madhya Pradesh, India, was the second Indian to accept Islam. There is still a city Bhoj after his name in the territory of Kachh (Gujarat). Actually at the time of Prophet Muhammad of Arabia, Raja Bhoj was the king of Dhar in Malwa. When he saw from his palace that the full moon was split into two he raised an alarm. He feared the world was coming to an end. He asked the Pundits about this incident, they studied the Sanskrit Holy Books of India, the Vedas and Puranas, and told the king that this is the miracle of last prophet, this was the work of a very great personage whose name was Mahamad of the deserts of Arabia, who was the greatest messenger of God to come on this earth. Raja Bhoj came to know that he appeared in Makkah. Raja Bhoj and his minister went to Makkah in Arabia, offered gifts to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s) and accepted Islam. Prophet Muhammad (s) named him Abdullah. When he came back to home his family did not accept him. He spent his whole life in remembering the Prophet and in worship of one God. Thus the foretelling made in the Bhavishya Purana over 4000 years earlier became absolutely true including the name of Raja Bhoj. The tomb of Abdullah is still there at Dhar. Raja Bhoj was the second Indian to accept Islam. 

More detail on Historical Evidences
A skeptic might ask, do we have any independent historical evidence to suggest the moon was ever split?  After all, people around the world should have seen this marvellous event and recorded it. The answer to this question is twofold.

First, people around the world could not have seen it as it would have been daytime, late night, or early morning many parts of the world.  The following table will give the reader some idea of corresponding world times to 9:00 pm Makkah time:
9:00 pm
11:30 pm
2:00 am
6:00 pm
Washington D.C.
2:00 pm
Rio de Janeiro
3:00 pm
3:00 am
2:00 am

The Indian and Chinese calendars have recorded the incident of the splitting of the moon.
Also, it is not likely that a large number of people in lands close by would be observing the moon at the exact same time.  They had no reason to.  Even if someone did, it does not necessarily mean people believed him and kept a written record of it, especially when many civilisations at that time did not preserve their own history in writing.

Prophet (Pbuh) Foretold in India (A) Hindu scriptures There is no doubt that God sent Prophets (Pbuh) to people of India. There is no mention of any Indian Prophet or scripture in Holy Qur’an. But Bukhari records Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) as saying he was enjoying breeze wafting from India laden with fragrance of Tawhid (unity of God). The four Vedas (scriptures) of Hindus and their epics are said to be 5000-10,000 years old. They contain a great deal of monotheistic ideas, and of course, prophecies on Hadrath Muhammad (Pbuh).

4) Prophesised in Sacred Hindu Scriptures Mahabharat and Bhavish Puran about the coming of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) 

Bhavishya Puran
This is a Sanskrit work of prophecies. The title means ‘Book of the Future’. Since Hinduism is based in India it was, and still is, taken for granted that its sages will be born in India itself. Contrary to this belief the Book says that a great master will appear in a foreign country (mlechcha acharya) and live in a sandy region (marusthal). His name will be Mahaamad. Within a short span of 18 couplets Mahaamad is mentioned five times. There is an interesting information in Bhavishya Purana that Mahaamad would appear to Bhoj, ruler of Dhar, and say that he would establish the religion of meat eaters, by the command of Ishwar i.e. God.  There is a tradition that long afterwards, Bhoj got terrified on seeing the full moon split into two. Learned men consulted holy books and told him that it was one of the signs of the Universal Master to be born in a country to the West. Bhoj sent his minister to Prophet (Pbuh) in Arabia, who named the king Abdullah. The Tomb of Abdullah is still there at Dhar… 
This is a Hindu epic describing the struggle and triumph of good against evil. It was written by sage Vyas who also authored Bhavishya Purana. Mahabharata says that "in the last eon called Kali Yug (in which we now live) a great sage will appear with name Mahaamad. He would preach about unity of God. He will be driven away from his native place by his own folk. By him the world would get peace. (Islam means peace). Mahabharat further says that cloud will provide him shade. It is recorded in history that Buhaira, the Christian priest of Syria observed this sign with Muhammad (PBUH) who was in his boyhood and identified him as the last Prophet anticipated for millennia.  

5) Prophesised in Sacred Hindu scriptures - Kalki Puran -  Kalki will split the moon
Kalki Puran

The signs and events of the final Avatar Kalki point out to final Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh). They fit those of Muhammad (Pbuh) neatly and perfectly. They are as follows;
  • Kalki will appear in the last on Kali Yug and will be the guide for the entire world.
  • He will be born on the 12th day of the month. Prophet (Pbuh) as born on 12th Of Rabiyyul Awwal).
  • His parents will be: Vishnu Bhagat and Soomati meaning servant of God (the Cherisher) and peace. (Messenger’s (Pbuh) father’s name was Abdullah, God’s servant and mother was Amina refuge giver which includes the idea of ‘peace’.)
  • He will be with a beauty par-excellence. His body will be fragrant.
  • He will get wisdom on a mountain. (Messenger (Pbuh) was conferred Prophethood on Mt.Hira)
  • He will receive a horse from God, which will be faster than lightning. Riding it he will go around the earth and seven skies. (During Mi’raj Prophet (Pbuh) got Buraq meaning lightning and toured the entire universe.)
  • Kalki will split the moon. Like Bhoj, Cheraman (Zamorin) Perumal the ruler of Indian kingdom of Kerala, witnessed splitting of the moon performed by Prophet (Pbuh). After gathering the facts he sailed to Arabia and became Muslim at Prophet’s (Pbuh) hand and on his way back died at the port of Zafar, Yemen,(Present salalah Oman) His Tomb is near the present city of Salala in Oman.

6) Moon Split Mentioned in the Quran (Last Testament from God)
The splitting of the moon is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, Surah Al-Qamar (54), Verses 1-3: "The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain. And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion.They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision." 

The extreme stubbornness of the unbelievers there at that time is well- known and is recorded in history. And yet, when the All-Wise Qur’an announced this event to the whole world through saying: not one of those unbelievers, who denied the Qur’an, spoke up to give the lie to this verse; that is, not one of them denied the event it was announcing. If the event had not been considered as a definite fact by the unbelievers at that time, they would have taken the verse as a pretext, denied it in a most fearsome manner, and tried to attack and overthrow Muhammad’s (PBUH) claim to prophethood. However, the biographies of the Prophet and histories mentioning the event relate nothing to suggest that the unbelievers denied it. The only thing that history relates is, as the verse
And [they] say, “This is evident magic” 
points out, the unbelievers who saw the event declared it to be magic, and said that if the caravans in other places had seen it, it was true, otherwise he had bewitched them. The caravans arriving the following morning from the Yemen and other places announced that they had seen such a happening. So the unbelievers then said of the Pride of All the Worlds (PBUH) that, God forbid, the magic of Abu Talib’s orphan had affected the heavens.

Also, another proof that the splitting of the moon was definitely happened is that the companions of the prophet used to ask him about the meaning of verses of Qur'an and the different events which happened in the past during the 23 years of life of the prophet in Islam but they didn’t ask him any question because by logic they saw that event by their eyes.

7)    Authentic Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) narrated by many Companions and recorded history in Arabia about Moon Split 
Narrated Abdullah bin Masud:  “During the lifetime of the Prophet the moon was split into two parts and on that the Prophet said, ‘Bear witness (to thus).’  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 830)” 
Narrated Anas:  “That the Meccan people requested Allah’s Apostle to show them a miracle, and so he showed them the splitting of the moon.   (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 831)”  
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:  “The moon was split into two parts during the lifetime of the Prophet.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 832)”  
Narrated Anas bin Malik:  “The people of Mecca asked Allah’s Apostle to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hiram’ mountain.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 208)”  

At first, the pagans could not believe what they saw. The moon had been split in two before their eyes. After the initial shock, however, they determined that it was nothing but the sorcery of the son of Abu Kabsha. “Maybe he has put a spell on us, so let’s wait until some travellers arrive in Makkah and ask them if they also saw it.”As soon as some travellers arrived in makkah, the Makkans asked them if they had seen the strange sight. The travellers confirmed they too had seen the wondrous sight of the cleft moon. Now there was no doubt about what they had witnessed, but the Quraysh stubbornly clutched their disbelief.
Narrated ‘Abdullah:  “The moon was split ( into two pieces ) while we were with the Prophet in Mina. He said, “Be witnesses.” Then a Piece of the moon went towards the mountain.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 209)”  
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas:  “During the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle the moon was split (into two places).  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 210)”  
Narrated ‘Abdullah:  “The moon was split (into two pieces).  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 211)”[3]  
This incident took place at Mina in Makkah before the Holy Prophet’s Hijra (migration) to Madinah.  The Moon had split into two distinct parts in front of their very eyes. The two parts had separated and receded so much apart from each other that to the on-lookers (in Makkah) one part had appeared on one side of the mountain and the other on the other side of it. Then, in an instant the two had rejoined.  This was a manifest proof of the truth that the system of the universe was neither eternal nor immortal, it could be disrupted.  This incident indicated that huge stars and planets could split asunder, disintegrate, collide with each other, and everything that had been described in the Qur’an on the Resurrection could happen.  The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) invited the people’s attention to this event only with this object in view and asked them to mark it and be a witness to it. But the disbelievers described it as a magical illusion and persisted in their denial. They were reproached in Surah Al-Qamar (The Moon) for their stubbornness.  

The majority of the most illustrious scholars, like Sa‘d al-din Taftazani, declared that like the Prophet had satisfied the thirst of a whole army with water flowing from his fingers, and the whole congregation had heard a dry wooden post against which Muhammad (PBUH) had leant while delivering the sermon weep on being separated from him, the Splitting of the Moon had been transmitted by numerous authorities. That is to say, these events had been passed down from group to group forming such a vast congregation that a conspiracy to lie would have been impossible. Like the appearance of the famous Haley’s Comet a thousand years ago had been unanimously reported, and the existence of the island of Ceylon was certain due to unanimous reports, although we had not seen it.

8) A Prophet Like Moses (Deuteronomy 18:18) 

Like Moses (PBUH) splitted the red sea with the permission of Allah Allmighty so did Muhammad (PBUH) splitted the moon with the permission of ALLAH Allmighty http://neurotherapy-of-christian-brain.blogspot.com/2012/05/bible-prophecies-of-muhammad-peace-and.html

9) The moon shall be confounded -Prophesy in Isaiah 24:23
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) performed over three hundred fifty (350) miracles. Their own Bible testifies and/or contains the prophecies about the miracles performed by Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Readers must remember that no Biblical prophet including Jesus has performed more miracles than Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and no Biblical prophet has performed miracle of splitting the moon into two halves, it is the miracle of Muhammad (SAW) that Bible has prophesied and Glorious Qur’aan has vouched for that. Let us examine the reference from the Bible containing three prophecies about Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his miracle/s.
Isaiah 24:23!
024:023 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
The above verse has three prophecies mentioned in it. First, it is referring to the miracle of moon splitting that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) performed and has mentioned earlier (see Glorious Qur’aan 54:1-3), the second thing that this verse is describing is the conquest of Khaiyber by Muslims. Khaiyber was a very the strong hold of Jews. The third thing in the same verse is about (Isra) Mera’aj (see Glorious Qur’aan 17:1, 60; 53: 10, 12, 14-18; 94:1). In other words this verse contains THREE prophecies about Prophet Muhammad. All three prophecies have come to pass!

Other Relevant Notes
It is due to this incident about their king, the people of Malabar became the first community in India to accept Islam. Subsequently, they increased their trade with Arabs, as the Arab ships used to pass by their shores on the way to China before the advent of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).  
Before Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Malabar also had a Christian community dating back from the earliest followers of Prophet Jesus (‘Isa), pbuh. St. Thomas is believed to have migrated to India and died there. This community remained untouched by later theological developments in Christianity until the arrival of Portugese traveler Vasco da Gama. 
When the British were consolidating their stronghold in India, they deployed the largest naval operation (on the shores of India) against the Muslims of Malabar[4]. 

Predictions of the coming of a Messanger of God from Arabia Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) was commanded by God to inform that he was not the only Messenger of God to the world [Al Qur'an 46:9]. Scholars say that there had been some 124,000 Prophet sent to the world who preached in the language of the respective people [A Qur'an 14:4]. The true religion they preached and their scriptures got corrupted with passage of time (with the exception of Al Qur’an). However, the message on the last and greatest Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) is retained till date in the scriptures of all major world religions.  The Hindu scriptures identify the greatest Prophet to come mentioning details of his birth, events of his life, his followers, etc. Some even give his Arabic name or its equivalents! This article will help creating right belief (Iman) in other religionists. Further, it will help Muslims appreciate yet another facet of greatness of Prophet (Pbuh) and deepen their Iman. We will see here only a sample of the overwhelming evidences!  

10)    Name of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) appeared on the moon 
Splitting and rejoining the moon is one of the biggest miracle of The Holy Prophet Muhammd (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) with the permission of Allah. The disbelievers of Makkah asked for this particular sign So he showed them the moon split in two halves and Muhammad (PBUH) invited the people’s attention to this event and asked them to mark it and be a witness to it. But the disbelievers described it as a magical illusion and persisted in their denial.

Mushrikeen (Disbelievers) of Makkah didn’t deny the moon split but only said it’s a magical illusion. Also note that those asleep who didn’t see the event, later didn’t contest and argued WHY? It may be because of the fact that appearance of the name of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on the moon after split and rejoining of the moon. This can be checked Today by NASA pictures and google earth.

11)   Following the legacy of Abraham (PBUH) - Broke ALL idols

Like Abraham (PBUH) a true Prophet of ALLAH broke all idols except their biggest one **** similarly Muhammad (PBUH) a True Prophet of ALLAH broke all 360 idols at that time after Makkah conquest which arab pagans had placed in the Kaaba. Note some arab pagans worshipped moon as their god and they challenged Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to break the moon and MUHAMMAD (PBUH) BROKE THE MOON IN TWO PIECES. The pagans saw it and didn't deny it rather they said its magic. It was not magic it was a real moon split broken in two pieces as proved in detail above. All pagan arabs were also silent because of the shame they felt due to their gods (moon) broken by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

**** Quran 21:51. We bestowed aforetime on Abraham his rectitude of conduct, and well were We acquainted with him.
52. Behold! he said to his father and his people, "What are these images, to which ye are (so assiduously) devoted?"
53. They said, "We found our fathers worshipping them."
54. He said, "Indeed ye have been in manifest error - ye and your fathers."
55. They said, "Have you brought us the Truth, or are you one of those who jest?"
56. He said, "Nay, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, He Who created them (from nothing): and I am a witness to this (Truth).
57. "And by Allah, I have a plan for your idols - after ye go away and turn your backs"..
58. So he broke them to pieces, (all) but the biggest of them, that they might turn (and address themselves) to it.
59. They said, "Who has done this to our gods? He must indeed be some man of impiety!"
60. They said, "We heard a youth talk of them: He is called Abraham."
61. They said, "Then bring him before the eyes of the people, that they may bear witness."
62. They said, "Art thou the one that did this with our gods, O Abraham?"
63. He said: "Nay, this was done by - this is their biggest one! ask them, if they can speak intelligently!"
64. So they turned to themselves and said, "Surely ye are the ones in the wrong!"
65. Then were they confounded with shame: (they said), "Thou knowest full well that these (idols) do not speak!"
66. (Abraham) said, "Do ye then worship, besides Allah, things that can neither be of any good to you nor do you harm?
67. "Fie upon you, and upon the things that ye worship besides Allah. Have ye no sense?"..
68. They said, "Burn him and protect your gods, If ye do (anything at all)!"
69. We said, "O Fire! be thou cool, and (a means of) safety for Abraham!"
70. Then they sought a stratagem against him: but We made them the ones that lost most!

12)    Lapetus Saturn's moon split into two

This is Iapetus, one of Saturn's moons. At the equator there is a ridge. There is no scientific explanation for this ridge. It appears as if this moon was split in half and recombined, with pressure on the two hemispheres:



Height = 18 km; Base = 30 km:


360 degree view:


There is another view which should be mentioned as well. 
The above moon (Lapetus moon) which is one of Saturn's 19 moons was also split in half as shown in the pictures. On recombination, the compression on the two hemispheres made this ridge. The Quran just said "the moon was split" but did not specify which moon! People back then thought that Earth's moon (the one they counted) was the only moon in the universe. But today we know that there are many other moons in our solar system besides the one they counted

Download the above images from NASA (pdf file 15.4MB).

NASA Iapetus Homepage wrote:The most unique, and perhaps most remarkable feature discovered on Iapetus in Cassini images is a topographic ridge that coincides almost exactly with the geographic equator. The ridge is conspicuous in the picture as an approximately 20-kilometer wide (12 miles) band that extends from the western (left) side of the disc almost to the day/night boundary on the right. On the left horizon, the peak of the ridge reaches at least 13 kilometers (8 miles) above the surrounding terrain. Along the roughly 1,300 kilometer (800 mile) length over which it can be traced in this picture, it remains almost exactly parallel to the equator within a couple of degrees. The physical origin of the ridge has yet to be explained. It is not yet clear whether the ridge is a mountain belt that has folded upward, or an extensional crack in the surface through which material from inside Iapetus erupted onto the surface and accumulated locally, forming the ridge.

If it were Earth's moon then why did God bring it closer to Earth? People could have seen it split at the same distance. Unless it was Iapetus which had to be brought nearer for people to see. So it is Iapetus that fits the description in the Quran. Holy Qur’an, Surah Al-Qamar (54), Verses 1: The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain.

Although Quran does not specifically tells exactly which moon  was split but for sure A moon was splitted as mentioned in the Quran which is definitely proved scientifically beyond doubt. 


In Mayan Calendar ... not only was the rabbit a new addition to the home of the moon goddess, but also the cosmic tree was new. Being held up to the mirror, the rabbit is shown where it was then located, not how was it born. In agreement with two midwifes, it shows that the palace of the moon is being shaken by a quake • This “quake” or catastrophe is well recorded worldwide, even in Peru… • The rabbit replaced the monkey as a recorder of the time and became a very important figure with the same split face of the moon…he then becomes the official recorder of time • At the top of page 139 in the 1997 Maya Hieroglyphic Forum, the dot and bar numbers have been inserted as corrections for the tops of the other columns (missing in V and K's works). On the basis of the number sequences, the date of the first (and, what I am surmising, was the original change) is or the Gregorian date of 9 February 623.

Mayan civilization Initially established around Pre-classic 2000 BC to approx Classic AD 900 and continued throughout the Post-Classic period until the arrival of the Spanish.

Muhammad PBUH ( ***570 – 8 June 632) and Moon split just before Higra/Migration from Makkah to Madina 
At the top of page 139 in Al1997 forum Maya hieroglyph, the dot and bar numbers have Been inserted as corrections for the tops of the other columns (missing in V and K's works)and pushed a point Ktsahahat to the tops of the other columns based on the number of strings, the first history (and which I think, was the original change) or history Gregorian from February 9 623(according to Julian Date sixth of February, that same year).  On the Basis of the number of sequences, the date of the first (original change) is or the Gregorian date of February 9 623 (the Julian date calculated the 6th of February, that same year). I say: Hence this Date in 623 AD : confirm the stay of the Prophet Muhammad in the end of his life in Mecca before the migration as He stayed in Mecca for total 53 years ( 40 years before the message +13 years after revelation begin ) this can review it from Islamic history. Year 570 ( the birth of the Prophet ) + 53 ( duration of his stay in Mecca before the migration ) = 623 AD !!! which is exactly the same year as the year mentioned in the above paragraph !!! .. which is the same as the expected date of the occurrence and Miracle of splitting of the moon in the late years of stay of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in Mecca !!!!

*** Year 570 is the confirm Birth year of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) because Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born in the Year of the Elephant (Arabic: عام الفيل‎, ʿĀmu l-Fīl) is the name in Islamic history for the year approximately equating to 570 CE. 

Kaabah (the cube black building in Mecca) and Mecca:
Atharva Veda X, 2, Mantras 28 and 31
28. Whether it is built high, its walls are in a straight line or not, but God is seen in every corner of it. He who knows the House of God, knows it because God is remembered there.
31. This abode of the angels has eight circuits and nine gates. It is unconquerable, there is eternal life in it and it is resplendent with Divine light.

The Ka'bah is not exactly cubical and its sides are not of the same length.  The Holy Sanctuary (Haram) of which Ka'abah is at the center remains open day and night throughout the year and it is always filled with people praying and supplicating to Allah (the One True God). Muslims face toward it during prayer forming circle in the Haram (Holy House) and the circle extends out in this manner throughout the planet Earth. 
The holy sanctuary (Haram) has remained unconquerable. Abraha al-Ashram, the Abbysinian viceroy of Yemen, tried to demolish it in 570 CE with a strong army and hordes of elephants but was prevented from entering the city (Holy precinct). The people of Makkah had decided not to defend the Ka'bah, fled the city and took refuge in nearby hills overlooking Ka'bah. By Allah's Command, the 'Abaabeel' (flying creatures, birds) pelted stones at Abraha's army and decimated it, leaving them like green crops devoured by cattle.
This incident is described in the Surah (chapter) 105 of the Qur'an. The year 570 CE is popularly known by the Arabs as 'The year of the Elephant,' and Prophet Muhammad was born in that year.

14) Old Building in China built the same year of Moon Split
There was an article published by one Western Magazine, and which was translated by an Arab magazine called Journal of Arab Man, published in Constantinople. The whole story involves how it was reported that in one of the Kingdoms of China they discovered an old building written on it that it was built in the year so and so, the same year in which a great heavenly event has occured and it was the splitting of the moon into two halves. When they worked out the date, they discovered that it tallied with the same year when the moon was cleft to our Master and Helper the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W).

15) Ancient Persian Calendar year 1 itself begins with the event of moon split

Just convert e.g. 9 February 623AD to Gregorian year here http://calcuworld.com/calendar-calculators/persian-calendar-converter/  it is year 1 of the Ancient Persian Calendar. This is also worth mentioning that muslims started the rule in Persia after defeating it in 651AD. So the Calendar date change was not by muslims. This event is not by chance of course if you are men of understanding. Moon split by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was indeed a Great Heavenly event observed in many parts of the world.

16) Division of the moon log in Madrid manuscripts and Persian scrolls
The moon split is recorded in the Persian Manuscripts. It is mentioned in the Falnameh, a Persian Book of Prophecies, in the Chapter, Muhammad splits the moon.

Illustration taken from a “Falnameh,” a sixteenth 
century Persian book of prophesies.
This shows that the division of the moon log in Madrid manuscripts and Persian scrolls pointed out that there is a Persian manuscript containing an image of the man who refers to the face of the moon is divided into the sky and the same event recorded in the pages of the manuscript Madrid 91-92 and 93 in the first paragraph of this page says: "There is a Persian manuscript illumination Which shows a similar white mountain (in the background) and a mountain covered with flowers and fruit (as veggies), and a weird gash in the earth behind a man who is looking at a split faced moon similar to Those found in the Madrid Codex on the top register of pages 91-92 and 93.

17) Moon Split in China and famous Chinese tradition of Moon cakes split in half before eating

The splitting of the moon event which occurred in the 7th Century CE was recorded by the Chinese astronomers. The event happened at the time of Sun Wu Kong (the Chinese King). It resulted in a broad sweeping change of the Calendar in China, the Chinese astronomers recorded that the year became longer by 5 days due to the reorganization of the phases of the moon. Thus, China was also affected at the 7th Century CE at the time of the split moon event. 
The Chinese celebrate a festival which they call as the Moon Festival. The origin of the moon festival is not very clear. However it dates back to a period between the Sui dynasty (581 CE) and Tang dynasty (618 CE). The festival is also known as the Mooncake Festival. On this day the celebration is accompanied by ‘Eating Moon-cakes outside under the moon which is cut into two halves.’ According to Chinese tradition, a possible explanation is that it signifies the Moon Split event performed by Prophet Muhammad (s), which has also been recorded in the Chinese manuscripts. And cutting the moon-cake into two halves which is a must before eating signifies the moon split. Another significant observation is that the period of origin is traced back to a date when the moon split actually took place in the year 617 CE.

18) The Moon Split in Maya (America)

The moon split is even recorded in the Maya or Aztec Civilization. The Maya astronomers, who saw it, actually recorded the split moon in the tiny glyphs in the Madrid Codex.

19) Baba Ratan of Bhatinda in Punjab India Witnessed Moon Splitting miracle of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
who is said to have visited Makkah twice, and on both occasions to have met Prophet Muhammad SallalhuAliWasslam. Baba Ratan on the latter occasion, accepted Islam and then returned to India, where he lived on to the incredulously great age of seven hundred years! His name is mentioned by Ibn Hajar Asqalanl in his Asabafl marifati s-Sahdba and also by a'dh-Qhahabiin hisTajrid. The former ranks him as one of the companions of Muhammad. He is said to have died in 1234-5 A. D.and to have been buried in a place called Tabar Hind

  1. dear mohammed ibrahim, can you give me a source or prouve or adress of the building in china who was bulted in the time of spliting the moon pls.
    and also hindoist texte about "kalki sopliting moon" ?
    benkaddour nabil chokran / thanks

  2. Dear Angel, plz give your email id I will send you the books on kalki. Thanks

    1. please give me also.
      it is mine

  3. The books of Kalki are relevant to Muslims ? Hinduism is an authentic religion to Muslims ?!!

  4. The citation of Kalki splitting the moon is wrong. Because as per mythological data, the incarnation of lord Vishnu as Kalki will happen at the end of kaliyug. Kaliyug has a duration of 432,000 years, for which the start date is 3102 BCE. Therefore, the above statement is just false as Kalki is yet to be born.

    1. Yes.Kalki will born in Indian subcontinent only.

  5. Could you please brother send me the books on kalki splitting the moon. My email address is abu.ghaben@gmail.com

  6. Brother, could you kindly also elaborate on the chinese sources for that, because as far as I checked, there is nothing mentioned about calendar change

  7. These Persian sources were written in the 16th Century. Could you brother explain to me how you used them to document an event in the 6th centrury.

    Please reply to abu.ghaben@gmail.com

  8. Cheraman Perumal story is fake. It is a myth. He was a saivate saint who composed hymns for lord Shiva. He went to Kailash too. It is a myth first told in Keralolpathi. It was retold by Portuguese several times. One Portuguese named Cuotos told that he accepted Christianity. That is how he got the name Chakrawati Farmas. His real name is Rama Varma.

    And muhammad is not predicted in any of the Hindu scriptures.

  9. There is no Chera Kingdom during 570-632 CE. How could a chera king visit Muhammad???

    1. there was shera kingdom Established c. 3rd century BCE
      Disestablished 12th century CE (1124)
      and even if the is a lot of archeological prouve !!!

  10. The entire things mentioned here is fake
