Allah Almighty said that the moon cracked. Science today did indeed confirm this!

See below….

The moon’s crack in the Noble Quran, and its appearance to split in half according to MANY eye witnesses, including non-Muslims!

The sections of this article are:

1- The moon-crack Noble Verse, and the appearance of the moon-split Hadiths as a Sign of Prophethood.
2- Chakrawati Farmas, King of Malabar in India, WITNESSED the splitting of the moon!

3- The fault line and cracking of the moon. With quotes and images.

4- Conclusion.

1- The moon-crack Noble Verse, and the appearance of the moon-split Hadiths as a Sign of Prophet hood.

As we clearly see in the Narrations below, the Prophet, peace be upon him, was asked by the people to perform a Miracle. Then Allah Almighty immediately caused for the moon to quake and crack as a Divine and Clear Sign of real Prophehood. It is important, however, to know that the Prophet, peace be upon him, did not split the moon with his index finger. This is a lie that was made up against our Prophet peace be upon him by some Islamphobes. It appears however from many witnesses that were documented in the Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari, that Allah Almighty made the moon appear as it was split in half for some of the people who asked our Prophet to show them a miracle. But it is important to know that no where in the Islamic books do we see any mention of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, going up to the moon and splitting it with his index finger as some of the people mistakenly think.

Moon Quake would cause the appearance of a split:

The appearance of the splitting of the moon as mentioned in the many eye witness accounts below along with even a non-Muslim Indian king (see the next main section), is very possible due to the moon quake and the excessive vibration caused by the quake. The extremely quaking moon could very easily appear as splitting in half to the people on Earth.

The Noble Quran’s Claim and the many recorded eye witnesses:

The following is the Noble Verse that talks about the actual cracking of the moon, and the narrations and eye witnesses that directly talked about the appearance of the moon-split which was a Sign from GOD Almighty to prove the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him:

“The hour of judgement approacheth; and the moon hath been cracked (inshaqqa). (The Noble Quran, 54:1)

“inshaqqa” was translated into “split in sunder”. The Arabic word “inhaqqa” can also literally mean cracked“.

As the scientific quote below in the “3- The fault line of the moon” section says:

“It’s actually a fault line formed from a moonquake in the ancient past.

Indeed, the moon did get “cracked”! Allah Praise are due to Allah Almighty alone! See the captured images in the section below!

The S-shaped moon orbit!It is also relevant to know that Allah Almighty described the shape of the moon’s entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree’s branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped. The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter “S”. I provided images in the article that prove this.

The eye-witness accounts:

Let us look at those eye witnesses’ narrations:

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 )

So they were afflicted with a year of drought that destroyed everything, and they ate bones and hides. (One of them said), “And they ate hides and dead animals, and (it seemed to them that) something like smoke was coming out of the earth. So Abu Sufyan came to the Prophet and said, “O Muhammad! Your people are on the verge of destruction! Please invoke Allah to relieve them.” So the Prophet invoked Allah for them (and the famine disappeared). He said to them. “You will revert (to heathenism) after that.” ‘Abdullah then recited:

‘Then watch you for the Day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke plainly visible…….but truly you will revert (to disbelief).’ He added, “Will the punishment be removed from them in the Hereafter? The smoke and the grasp and the Al-Lizam have all passed.” One of the sub-narrator said, “The splitting of the moon.” And another said, “The defeat of the Romans (has passed).” (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Prophetic Commentary on the Qur’an (Tafseer of the Prophet (pbuh)), Volume 6, Book 60, Number 349)

2- Chakrawati Farmas, King of Malabar in India, WITNESSED the splitting of the moon!

he following link was given to me by Karim, who is one of the site’s authors; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.


From http://www.cyberistan.org/islamic/farmas.html:

The incident relating to King Chakrawati Farmas is documented in an old manuscript in the India Office Library, London, which has reference number: Arabic, 2807, 152-173. It is quoted in the book “Muhammad Rasulullah,” by M. Hamidullah:

“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 (pbuh) 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 hand of the Prophet, and when returning home, at the direction of the Prophet, died at the port of Zafar, Yemen, where the tomb of the “Indian king” was piously visited for many centuries.”

The old manuscript in the ‘India Office Library’ contains several other details about King Chakrawati Farmas and his travel.

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.

According to Maududi, the traditionists and commentators have agreed that this incident took place at Mina in Makkah about five years 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.

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.

3- The fault line and cracking of the moon:

“The hour of judgement approacheth; and the moon hath been cracked (inshaqqa). (The Noble Quran, 54:1)

The following scientific web sites show, with images, how the moon’s fault line splits it in half:

1- http://www.synapses.co.uk/astro/moon3.html:

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.”

“….It’s actually a fault line formed from a moonquake in the ancient past….”

The moon’s fault line:

The following image was sent to me by brother Ali; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

4- Conclusion:

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.

All Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty!
