Did Muhammad split the moon to prove that he was a prophet?

EGGMooning

In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

The Last Hour has drawn near, and the moon has split. But whenever they see a sign, they turn away and say, ‘This is evident magic.’ (54:1-2)

The miracle of the splitting of the moon was demonstrated before a certain gathering who persisted in denial of Muhammad’s Prophethood. As was related by ‘Adbullah ibn Mas‘ud, while they were in Mina’ one night, the Prophet split the moon into two by a gesture of his index finger. The halves of the moon appeared one behind the mountain and the other in front of it. Then, the Prophet turned to us and said: ‘Be witnesses!’ [1]

The splitting of the moon happened momentarily at a time of night

The Qur’an refers to this miracle in the following verses:

The Last Hour has drawn near, and the moon has split. But whenever they see a sign, they turn away and say, ‘This is evident magic’. (al-Qamar, 54.1-2)

Some say ‘If the splitting of the moon had taken place, it would have been known to the whole world and related in all subsequent books of human history’.

Answer: The splitting of the moon was demonstrated before a certain gathering who contradicted the Prophet Muhammad in his cause as an evidence of his Prophethood. It happened momentarily at a time of night. Also, there were obstacles which prevented the others from seeing it, such as mist, clouds and time-differences between different parts of the world. Besides, at that time science and civilization were not yet well advanced and not widespread, and, therefore, the observation of the sky was limited. There was nothing to necessitate that it should have been seen all over the world.

  1. Yes, I split the moon once but I was arrested for indescency.
    Mohammad split the moon and everyone stood and watched in awe!
    Mohammad had a fat arse.

  2. muslim circular reasoning – idioticy at its finest – congratulations muslims – you have at last achieved a top score.

  3. I am trying not to laugh at this idiot called John. John – just how stupid are you? Let me answer John. You are an absolute and total moron.

    Sheik – I have a suspicion who this jerk is – can you get his IP and post.

    The problem: an analogy will suffice. John has been told, by the writings of … let us image a bearded rapist pedophile murderer called Camel Fker … that the number 10 cannot exist. So despite the evidence and proofs of mathematicians and others, John continues to swear on the word of Camel Fker that the number 10 cannot have a place in a counting system. He is clearly wrong, but because he is very dumb he cannot see that he is wrong
    and thus he is incapable of understanding why he is wrong. Because he is a male follower of Camel Fker (he is also extremely thin skinned with a weak personality – a bully in fact) he considers all the proofs that show 10 is a countable number an attack on his prophet Camel Fker and thus a direct attack on him. He tries to counter by burning the proofs and killing the intellectuals who wrote them – but he cannot do this in our society (one reason he want to change our society) . His “solution”: taking parts of the proofs that demonstrate that 10 belongs with a counting system, he takes selected parts and twists the meaning to try and argue that 10 does not exist. However John is not sufficiently bright to understand that the partial texts do not support his claim that 10 cannot exist at all. If John were intelligent he would be guilty of severe intellectual dishonesty but basically he is a criminal. My real question is — why are we wasting time with this idiot (John the muzz wanker)???
