2-  What do the Hadiths say?
3-  My rebuttal to the "Scholars" response to why the moon splitting wasn't documented on a global scale.
4-  The Solar Eclipse Miracle was rejected as a magic.

1-  What does Allah Almighty say in the Glorious Quran?

Let us look at what Allah Almighty said in the Glorious Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 17:59
Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[017:059]  Nothing prevents Us from producing miracles. But the earlier people had rejected them! We assigned the camel as a proof for the people of ‘Samood’, but they committed an outrage. We only display signs to serve as a warning!

Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

17:59 ومامنعنا ان نرسل بالايات الا ان كذب بها الاولون واتينا ثمود الناقة مبصرة فظلموا بها ومانرسل بالايات الا تخويفا

   

Noble Verse(s) 54:1
Arabic (from right to left):

54:1 اقتربت الساعة وانشق القمر

54:2 وان يروا اية يعرضوا ويقولوا سحر مستمر

Rodwell:

[054:001] The hour hath approached and the MOON hath been cleft or cracked (inshaqqa):

[054:002] But whenever they see a miracle they turn aside and say, This is well-devised magic.

  
So did Prophet Muhammad really split the moon according to the Glorious Quran and Hadiths?  No he didn't.  Allah Almighty made this very clear in Noble Verse 17:59 above.  In the following video, I added ample new proofs that demonstrate from both the Glorious Quran and the Hadiths that:

The moon wasn't split during Prophet Muhammad's days according to the Quran Itself.  A detailed rebuttal from the Glorious Quran Itself by the Engineer Mr. Adnan Al Refaei [1] المهندس عدنان الرفاعي is included in the video file.
  

  

  1. The pagans dismissed the Solar Eclipse Miracle as a magic by the Prophet.
  2. NASA has confirmed and proven that a solar eclipse did indeed occur during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.


      
    The video and rebuttal are further discussed here.
      
    Did Noble Verse 54:1 come from Imru'u Al-Qays' (امرئ القيس) poems?
      
    Lunar Calendar Miracle.  The people of the cave story is also discussed here.
      
    Moon Orbit Miracle.  Moon's S-Shaped orbit is mentioned in the Glorious Quran.

    The moon cracked.  Mentioned by science and confirmed by the Glorious Quran.
      
    Did Prophet Muhammad really split the moon according to the Glorious Quran and the Hadiths?  Noble Verse 17:59 says no he didn't!
      
    The Quran states that the light of the moon is reflected light.

  

Brother Adnan Al-Refaei answers from the Glorious Quran that physical Miracles outside the Glorious Quran were not permitted by Allah Almighty for Prophet Muhammad, according to the Quran Itself.  Islam's Miracle is the Glorious Quran Itself, and not Miracles outside It, such as:

1-  Parting the sea.
2-  Walking on water.
3-  Turning a stick into a live snake
4-  etc....

These physical Miracles ended when their Prophets and immediate eye witnesses' times ended.  They are not Miracles that we actually see and touch today.  But the Quran's Miracle is an Everlasting one that is a continuous Miracle for all times and all places.  To see many of the Overwhelming Scientific Miracles of the Glorious Quran, please visit:

    2-  What do the Hadiths say?

    We further read in the Hadiths the following:

    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, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 830)"

    Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:  "The moon was split into two parts during the lifetime of the Prophet(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 832)"

    Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas:  "During the lifetime of Allah's Apostle the moon was split (into two places).  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 210)"

    There is strong evidence that the narrations weren't even written by the immediate eye witnesses, or even during the lifetime of the Prophet himself.

      

      

    3-  My rebuttal to the "Scholars" response to why the moon splitting wasn't documented on a global scale:

    In the video above, brother Adnan read from Imam Al Nawawi's exegesis that the reason why only very few people witnessed the splitting of the moon Miracle was because:

    1-  It was night.

    2-  People were sleeping and their doors were closed.

    3-  Therefore, very few people witnessed the Miracle.

      

    My response:

    Allah Almighty Said in the Holy Quran that the Earth is:
      
    1-
    Spherical (egg-shaped).
    2- Suspended in Space.
    3- Rotating around itself. (emphasis on dahaha and its derivatives)
    4- Is traveling in Space.
      
    5-  Did you know that the Glorious Quran declares that the earth is:

  • Spherical.
  • Suspended in Space.
  • Traveling in Space.
  • Revolves around itself, or its own axle?
      
  • Also, all celestial bodies are يعرجون Yaa'rujoon (traveling in orbits [2] [3] [4] [5]) in space.  This video is about Noble Verses 32:5, 34:2, 57:4, 70:3-4 and others, and the Arabic words عرج , عروج , معارج  and  معراج  that all refer to "going in an orbital and curvy path" in the Glorious Quran and our Islamic Texts.
      
      
    A STUNNING Hadith [1] [2] [3] [4] from Prophet Muhammad regarding the rising and setting POINTS:


      
    Question:

    Did Prophet Muhammad know think that the earth was spherical or flat?

    Answer:

    In this Hadith, above, he certainly seems to have known this fact very well.  And this Hadith is even older than Sahih Bukhari.  It is important to know that Imam Bukhari and others have declared that they have discarded thousands of Hadiths:

    www.islamic-awareness.org/Hadith/bukhari.html

  • "The two sahih collections did not gather the totality of the authentic ahadith as proved by al-Bukhari's testimony: "I have not included in my book al-Jami` but what is authentic, and I left out among the authentic for fear of [excessive] length."
      

  • "... Bukhari, collected twenty thousand of them, of which he rejected ten thousand, accounting them untrue. Of the remaining ten thousand he accepted only 7,275, declaring the rest to be untrustworthy. Abu Da'ud accepted as authentic only 4,800 rules out 50,000."

  •   
    This is to keep their volumes as simple and manageable as possible.  So it is quite possible that the Prophet spoke about the earth being spherical, and the Glorious Quran certainly did, and
    people just dismissed them as nonsense.  I have covered your question in great details at:

    5-  Some of the Quran's Overwhelming Scientific Miracles:

    From www.answering-christianity.com/ac20.htm#links:

      

    Some very STUNNING Divine Miracles: [1]

    Here are some of my favorite Stunning Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran from among the tens (10s) that are listed in this section:

    1-  Here is one stunning Numerical Miracle, from the 10s below, for you:

    The Glorious Quran has 114 Chapters. The sum of those Chapters is 6555 (1+2+...+114 = 6555). There are also 6236 Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran. Now, IF YOU ADD EACH CHAPTER # with the number of its Verses, then you get a list of numbers. So 1 (first Chapter) + 7 (# of its Verses) = 8. Do this for all Chapters.

    1-  The sum of the odd numbers from the list = 6555.
    2-  The sum of the even numbers from the list = 6236.

    See the XLS file for 100% confirmation.
      

    2-  The Great Miracle.  Allah Almighty in the Holy Quran called the Number 19 Miracle "One of the Mighty Ones (Miracles)" (74:30-37) [1] [2].  See the 100s of Noble Verses that clearly testify to this Great Miracle.  Also, did you know that Allah Almighty Said in Surat Nuh (that's Noble Chapter Nuh (Noah)) that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years among his people. 

    Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah is exactly written in 950 Letters [1] [2]!  You can thoroughly see this in the scanned images that thoroughly verify every single Noble Letter, in the links.  Click on the links to see the many other Numerical Miracles in the Holy Quran.  Also, see the Numerical Miracles section along with all of the other great sections.  Also, 1,000s of examples in zip & PDF (fonts) files all demonstrated in this article!

      
    3-  19 X 115 = 2185 Number 19 and BASMALA Miracle.  The total numerical value of Noble Verses 74:30-37 themselves, which are the heart of the Number 19 Miracle, has a stunning Miracle in it.  The value of these Noble Verses matches the multiplication of the BASMALA's number of letters (19 Letters) and their total numerical values (115): 19 X 115 = 2185.  The Basmala, which full text in Arabic means "In the Name of Allah The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful" is the Key to the Glorious Quran.  It is recited first before reading the Holy Quran, and it is also obligatory upon every Muslim to start with the Basmala before starting any task.  Again, 1,000s of examples in zip & PDF (fonts) files all demonstrated in this article!

      
    4-  Please also checkout the many hundreds (100s) of Great Numerical Miracles, and the many tens (10s) of other Great Scientific Miracles that deal with:

         1-  Embryology.
         2-  Biology.
         3-  Astronomy.
         4-  Geology.
         5-  Mathematics
         6-  Archeology.
         7-  Prophecies [1].

    For example:

    1-  The explosion of the Universe, Galaxies and Stars bring about Smoke.
      
    "When the sky disintegrates, and turns rose colored like paint (
    وردة كالدهان)." (The Noble Quran, 55:37) [2] [3]
      

      
      

    Also, the Glorious Quran [1] declares that the earth is:

    1- Spherical.
    2- Suspended in Space.
    3- Rotating around itself.
    4- Is traveling in Space.

    This is also all demonstrated in good details in the following video file:

    www.answering-christianity.com/egg-shaped_earth.htm
    www.answering-christianity.com/ac20.htm#links
    www.answering-christianity.com/detailed_meanings_of_scientific_words_in_verses.htm
      

      

      

    6-  Conclusion.

    While the Glorious Quran is stunningly Miraculous, and also contains amazing Prophecies in It as well, but I don't believe that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, had split the moon, nor did Allah Almighty declare it in the Holy Book.  We clearly saw in Noble Verse 17:59 above, and in the arguments that brother Adnan Al-Refaei has put forth, that Allah Almighty made it clear that Prophet Muhammad didn't split the moon in half.

    The following Question-Answer exchanges are some of the very thorough and beneficial regarding the Scientific Miracles of the Sun and the Moon in the Glorious Quran.

    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1311.msg4866.html#msg4866:

      

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

    '' Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon.'' (25:61)

     In the above Ayah Allah says He has placed great stars in the Heaven and also place therein a lamp (Sun) and a luminous moon. Okay I don't understand why Allah differentiated the stars and the Sun. Why does Allah only address the sun as a lamp while we know that there are much more bigger luminous stars than the sun in the universe? And does this verse mean there is only one Sun and one moon in the Heavens? But it's not possible as I have told you earlier that our Universe consists of many Sun like stars and also Moons.

     Please clarify this.

    Answer:

    Hello brother Farhan!

    I wanted to let you know that this verse (25:61) uses the word that is more accurately translated as constellations. So right away, you know that this verse is referring to the human perception of the sky! We see constellations and patterns in the sky, so it is our perception. So this verse is adhering to human perception to explain a beautiful phenomena of creation. Next you notice that the Quran says that Allah placed a burning lamp in the sky and a moon. In no way does this mean there is only one burning lamp or one moon, it is just stating that there is a burning lamp and a moon in the sky.

    There are a few things that you need to notice about this verse. In no way does this verse say that the sun isn't a star, or that there is only one moon.

    Next there is another verse in the Quran that addresses the STARS as being LAMPS, just as the sun is.

    Quran 24:35 Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from [the oil of] a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things.

      

    Question:

    thanks brother.

     But can I have some more proof that Quran doesn't say that there is only one moon and one sun? Can you show anymore verse where Allah refers to the stars as lamps? And can you make it more clearer why do you think the verse is talking about human perception? It will Inshallah convince me.

    PLEASE HELP

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,

    Brother Mclinkin94, great answer akhi.  May Allah Almighty bless you.  Ameen.

    I would like to add that Allah Almighty created the creatures on earth to live by day and night.  Some planets, and even parts on this earth, have very long days cycles and very long nights cycles.  Normal life on earth was designed by an equal rotation of the day and night.  So by Divine Design, Allah Almighty placed the moon to be our night light, and for the sun to be our glorious star.

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said the following:

    ‏91:1 والشمس وضحاها
    ‏91:2 والقمر اذا تلاها
    ‏91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها


    "By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that magnifies and glorifies (جلاها) its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:1-3)"



    Did you know our shining and glorious days, on a clear day, are a magnification of the sun's rays by our atomosphere?  Outside our atmosphere, the universe is pitch black!  And Allah Almighty Said that it is our day that magnifies and glorifies the sun's brightness.  Please visit:

    thanks brother.

     But can I have some more proof that Quran doesn't say that there is only one moon and one sun? Can you show anymore verse where Allah refers to the stars as lamps? And can you make it more clearer why do you think the verse is talking about human perception? It will Inshallah convince me.

    PLEASE HELP

    [067:005]  And we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones, and have prepared for them the Penalty of the Blazing Fire.

    Question:

    '' It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.''(36:40)

     Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an orbit.


     Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how? Because the verses only mention sun, moon and earth? If I say Ibrahim and Ali, Sami and Abdel, Ahmad and Uthman everyone is a good player or all are good players will it imply also the people whose names are unmentioned?  Can anyone explain this in detail?

     And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?

    Answer:

    '' It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.''(36:40)
      
    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

    People were asking the Prophet, peace be upon him, if the sun and the moon were ever going to collide.  The people thought that the sun and the moon were both running on one lane or line or orbit or path, and that they're together, and that if one slows down, then the other would catch up to it and they'd ultimately collide Allah Almighty responded to this nonsense by making it absolutely clear that the sun and the moon are traveling in entirely different orbits, and that they could not catch up to each others and collide.  So what the empty anti-Islamics of today try to prove as a scientific blunder in the Holy Quran turns out to be an accurate Scientific Statement and a Scientific Miracle of its time.

    Also,  the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped.  Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
      
    Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an orbit.
      
    Same exact reponse as above.  Yes, they're not on the same orbit.  This is Scientifically estabilished.  And again, the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped.  Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
      
    Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how? Because the verses only mention sun, moon and earth? If I say Ibrahim and Ali, Sami and Abdel, Ahmad and Uthman everyone is a good player or all are good players will it imply also the people whose names are unmentioned?  Can anyone explain this in detail?

    And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?
      
    Allah Almighty started the Noble Verse with speaking only about the sun and the moon, and the night and the day.  But ended it by saying ALL swimming in their independent orbits.  This is referring here to all celestial bodies in the Universe.  This is further clearly proven in other Noble Verses where Allah Almighty talking about the orbits of the celestial bodies, and how once in space, traveling becomes in orbits.  Please visit the following video of Dr. Zaghloul Al-Najjar.  He thoroughly and beautifully explained this beautiful Miracle in the Holy Quran with ample examples and details:

    Also, all celestial bodies are يعرجون Yaa'rujoon (traveling in orbits [2] [3] [4] [5]) in space.  This video is about Noble Verses 32:5, 34:2, 57:4, 70:3-4 and others, and the Arabic words عرج , عروج , معارج  and  معراج  that all refer to "going in an orbital and curvy path" in the Glorious Quran and our Islamic Texts.
      
      
    A STUNNING Hadith [1] [2] [3] [4] from Prophet Muhammad regarding the rising and setting POINTS:


      
    Question:

    Did Prophet Muhammad know think that the earth was spherical or flat?

    Answer:

    In this Hadith, above, he certainly seems to have known this fact very well.  And this Hadith is even older than Sahih Bukhari.  It is important to know that Imam Bukhari and others have declared that they have discarded thousands of Hadiths:

    www.islamic-awareness.org/Hadith/bukhari.html

  • "The two sahih collections did not gather the totality of the authentic ahadith as proved by al-Bukhari's testimony: "I have not included in my book al-Jami` but what is authentic, and I left out among the authentic for fear of [excessive] length."
      

  • "... Bukhari, collected twenty thousand of them, of which he rejected ten thousand, accounting them untrue. Of the remaining ten thousand he accepted only 7,275, declaring the rest to be untrustworthy. Abu Da'ud accepted as authentic only 4,800 rules out 50,000."

  •   
    This is to keep their volumes as simple and manageable as possible.  So it is quite possible that the Prophet spoke about the earth being spherical, and the Glorious Quran certainly did, and
    people just dismissed them as nonsense.  I have covered your question in great details at:

    Question:

    And the moon darkens.(75: 8 )

    And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

    Can anyone explain the above verses? Why Allah says that the moon and the sun will be joined? As sun is much bigger than the moon , it should swallow it not get joined with it. I'm confused. I have read some articles where they say that through these verses Allah says that Sun will swallow the Moon before the Final Hour. But the verse uses ''JOINED'' not ''SWALLOWED''. Or is it talking about Solar eclipse? If so then the translation might me wrong.

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

    Here are the Noble Verses:

    ‏75:7 فاذا برق البصر
    ‏75:8 وخسف القمر
    ‏75:9 وجمع الشمس والقمر
    ‏75:10 يقول الانسان يومئذ اين المفر

    [075:007]  At length, when the sight is dazed,
    [075:008]  And the moon is buried in darkness.
    [075:009]  And the sun and moon are joined together,-
    [075:010]  That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"


    I believe this is a Prophecy about a Great Eclipse that will take place.  This actually makes sense, since when the Hour Comes, the Universe's orbits' path will turn into a spegetti mess on a massive scale, and all celestial bodies will be colliding violently with each others.  So it makes sense that:

    1-  Our atmosphere will change, and hence it will greatly effect our visions, since the sun rays are all magnified and become glorious, as we know them, through our atmosphere as Allah Almighty mentioned clearly in the Glorious Quran:

    ‏91:1 والشمس وضحاها 
    ‏91:2 والقمر اذا تلاها
    ‏91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها 

    "By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that magnifies and glorifies (جلاها) its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:1-3)"
     
    Please visit: http://www.quransearch.com/sun_rays_miracle.htm


    Lunar Eclipses do blur and permanently damage the eye's cornea:

    The following pictures certainly prove the points above.  Another point worth mentioning is that when the Hour Comes, the sun's rays might be much much more than what they already are today.  There are several Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran that indicate that this will actually happen:

    http://www.quransearch.com/water_shall_vanish.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/galaxy_explosion.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/end_of_times_volcanoes_caused_by_stretching_of_earth.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/ac20.htm#links



    In the case, the lunar eclipse would be far greater than what it appears to be in the following pictures:







    When watching the lunar eclipse outside, special Eye Shields are required to prevent blindness and/or permanent eye damages, especially to the cornea:






    2-  Because of the chaos in the orbits, our solar system's orbits will also go in chaos, and hence the sun's and the moon's orbits will cross each others, and an eclipse will occur as a result.

    3-  When the events in point #2 happen, then the sky will darken and the moon will be buried in darkness.

    Great question dear brother, Farhan!  I will add this on the website with more elaborations, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

     I'm still confused about these verse:

      And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

     Even if it is talking about solar eclipse, why it says that sun and moon will be joined? We know during Solar Eclipse, the moon comes in between the Sun and the Earth. Moon is not joined. Please, can you explain this in detail?

    Answer:

    Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother,

    It is possible that the moon will eventually be swallowed by the sun, along with all of our solar system's celestial bodies.  We've seen above already how this Noble Verse is talking about the Great Lunar Eclipse when the Hour Comes.  As to the language of the sun and the moon will be joined together, while it is about a lunar eclipse, but it could also be referring to the moon eventually leaving its orbit here around earth and be devoured by the sun.  You see, the two immediate celestial bodies to us humans that our naked eyes could see up close and personal, from our view here on earth, are:

    1-  The moon.
    2-  The sun.

    And they are the most relevant and vital celestial bodies for our life here on earth.  So if Allah Almighty spoke in limited language about the sun and the moon, it doesn't limit the event to just them.  But to us humans, since these two celestial bodies are what we see in considerable size and clarity from earth here, then they are the most relevant to us.  Plus as I said, they are the most relevant and vital to our life here on earth as well.  So Allah Almighty putting emphasis on the sun and the moon wouldn't mean that the Noble Verse is limited to just them.

    As to the Arabic جمع (joined) in Noble Verse 75:9 above, it could very well be referring to being aligned together according to our view and perspective here on earth.  جمع is both a noun and a simple past in Arabic:

    1-  جمع means a group for a noun.
    2-  جمع means joined together, came together, summoned together, brought together, put together for a simple past.

    The Noble Word would be very appropriate and suitable if Allah Almighty spoke about the Great Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour Comes.  And we see very clearly from the full context in Noble Verses 75:7-10, in the previous posts above, that Allah Almighty did indeed speak about a Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour comes.

    I know I've written an article years ago about these Noble Verses.  I will update it with these new posts today, Insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

    I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah
