Note to Atheists:

If you think that everything Evolved from nothing think again, read the following comment of an Ex-Atheist before denying that Allah split the moon or elevated prophet Muhammed to skies in the night journey of ascension. For detailed information about our response to Atheism please read here

You should check the the Miracles of the Glorious Quran and this link about Atheism as follows:

Note to Christians and Jews:

Prophet Muhammed in Islam is human, not God or son of God, He walked the streets, smiled, slept, ate, got married, defended his people against aggressors, etc.

You claim to believe in God and that He is Omnipotent and omniscient, Which of the following is more plausible in a majestic way that show respect to God:

That Allah split the moon and elevated prophet Muhammed to skies in the night journey of ascension.

Well, you have astronauts go to space now, why do you think it is impossible for God to raise Prophet Muhammed to Heavens during the night journey of ascension and bring him back to Earth. During that trip Our prayers were ordained and Prophet Muhammed spoke to Allah Exalted He without seeing Allah Exalted He. As we all know no one can see God in this life with his eyes and live. Check your Bible. Exodus 33:20)

Don’t you think that Jesus was raised too?

Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him did not split them moon personally by himself, but Allah did that. Before denying that Allah split the moon or elevated prophet Muhammed to skies in the night journey of ascension. You need to study the Glorious Holy Quran and in particular the miracles of Quran. www.Miracles-of-Quran.com

Which of the following is more plausible in a majestic way that show respect to God?

God came down and wrestled with Jacob as per your Bible, what a big blasphemy. How would you believe God Almighty came down to earth to eat, drink, got bashed by his own creation and he did by himself then was killed on a cross at the hands of his own creation to save us from himself, you would say no it was the son which is the human flesh.

Are you telling us that God turn to be a man son of man which is against your Bible, all those farfetched make-belief blasphemous Christianity shows no respect for God.

The Scientific Miracles in the Quran

Miracle of the Quran

The Glorious Holy Quran provided us with ample evidence including numerous Scientific evidence.

So when the Quran states that The moon was split by the will of Allah Exalted He as a miracle to evidence the Prophethood of our Beloved Prophet Muhammed, then we must have concrete unshakable faith that the splitting of the Moon occured.

Very important point is, that Arab Pagan idolaters Meccans from Quraysh tribe who witnesses the moon splitting miracle as they challenged Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him to show the a miracle.

So Prophet Muhammed prayed to Allah Exalted He who made splitted the moon “Live in front of them” and they did Not deny that the moon splitting happen but the deny it to be a true and consider it to be a magic.

Imagine Hypothetically IF the Glorious Holy Quran was not from Allah

Why would Prophet Muhammed accept the challenge of the Arab Pagan of Mecca to show them a physical incident of moon splitting which would be easy to refute if it did not happen?

Note: Arab Pagans of Mecca did not deny that the moon splitting happened in front of their eyes- But out of disbelief they acknowledged it did happpen and described it to be “magic”

Miracles are something that science can’t prove or explain, Simply because it is something out of the norm. That’s why they are called miracles

Counter- Questions to refute deniers of Prophet Muhammed’s miracle of splitting the Moon with Allah permission

NASA or any Scientist is not an authority for approving miracles. Miracles don’t need to be approved anyway.

Did someone witness the fire going cold on Prophet Abraham and have physical evidenceto show us NOW?

Did Prophet Moses split the red sea to assist his followers to cross the sea and then the same sea drowned the pharaoh, while physical evidence is available to support that incident NOW?

Yes Prophet Jesus made miracles with Allah permission, but did Prophet Jesus really performed all those miracle such as turning water to wine as christians claim and is Do christians have any physical evidence available now to support such claim?

Where is the physical Evidence for Prophet Jesus crucifixion, resurrection and all these lies?

Answer is NONE check this Contradictions in the Resurrection of Jesus Accounts

Miracles are something that science can’t prove or explain. That’s why they are called miracles. God has power over everything. Your believing or not has no significance.

Of course all these miracles happened. You do t have to believe in them, after all, many don’t believe in God too.

Question:

If Prophet Muhammad prophecy is the split of the moon, then why we are still alive? He said if the moon split, soon it is end of the world’ is this a false prophecy?

Answer:

The above question is wrong for many reasons:

The splitting of the moon was not a Prophecy to come in the future but it was a miracle that already was done by Allah to support our beloved Prophet Muhammed after the Arab Pagans of Mecca asked for a physical evidence to see by their eyes to support the facte that Prophet Muhammed is a true prophet and Messenger was sent to them by Allah Exalted He.

The Glorious Quran (54:1-2) stated that as miracle and not as prophecy yet to happen in the future

Additionally The Glorious Quran in (54:1-2) did not specifiy a tiemfarme as to whne the hour=Judgement day will happen immediately after the moon splitting miracle.

The word hour in the above-mentioned Noble Quranic verse refers to the fact that Judgement day is so near. To understand we need to know that Scientifically, The universe is roughly 14 billion years old and Earth is 4.5 billion years old. The moon split happened 1400 years ago, 1400 years represents 0.00001% of the age of the universe and 0.000031% of the age of earth.

Therefore it is not even close to be considered “soon” is that what you think??

Well, think again, maybe if you look at it from the Christian perspective that Earth is 6000 years old as per the part-corrupted Bible, it would be false to call it “soon” but earth is not 6000 years old, because Earth is 4.5 billion years old roughly as per Science.

Even if the end of the world was going to happen 1000 years from now, it would still be correct to call it soon 1400 years ago.

As Muslims it is part and parcel of the Islam to have unshakable faith that the moon had been split into half as a miracle was made by Allah Exalted, He and as one of the Prophethood signs of Prophet Muhammed to prove the authenticity of his Prophethood to the Arab Pagan disbelievers.

Yet, the Arab Pagans called that moon splitting miracle a form of magic, their denial is evidence that they have seen the split of the moon but due to their arrogance and prejudice they insisted on their disbelief.

First and foremost, In Islam miracles are not proofs/evidence for truthfulness. If miracles alone are proofs/evidence for truthfulness.

That might qualify doctors and surgeons who are nowadays making medical miracles to consider themselves Prophets of God, would that be, okay?

The answer is of course not

When we say Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him did split the moon, what we mean is that Prophet did it by the permission and help of Allah. So basically, it was done by Allah. 

Similarly, all the miracles performed by Prophet Jesus Christ peace be upon him were also by the permission of God. Nothing is impossible for Allah.

He can split moon, earth, sun, or anything. We believe he has created everything, and he is the ultimate creator, and he is in full control. So, he can do whatever he wants. So, I can understand that an atheist or skeptic will have hard time understanding this.

Like we said, miracles are not proofs/evidence for truthfulness. Then why was the miracle performed?

Obviously, it was for the non-believers who asked Prophet Muhammed for a non-specific miracle to prove whether he is a true Prophet of God or not.

So, Allah Exalted He split them moon for them, it is not a test of faith for Muslims, similarly, people use to ask Prophet Jesus Christ peace be upon him to perform miracles.

Some people will start asking for physical evidence, well there was no videos, audios, or technologies to capture the splitting of moon miracle on tape. It was a miracle which means an extraordinary incident that violated he standard laws of physics as we know it today.

The miracle of splitting the moon by God is much more plausible.

With Allah blessings there are multiple historical authentic verified chains of narrations to prove the splitting of the moon beyond any shadow of doubts. Those historical accounts are not only by Muslims but also by non-Muslims.

After all Christians claim that Jesus is God or son of God MERELY based on historical accounts that they perceive to be correct.

So why would not anyone one accepts the miracle of splitting the moon which came to us via multiple historical authentic verified chains of narrations to prove the splitting of the moon beyond any shadow of doubts?

Those historical accounts about the moon splitting are not only by Muslims but also by non-Muslims.

Well, which one is much serious in severity?

Accepting a human turn to be a God or son of God via unverified False historical accounts?

Read Contradictions in the Resurrection of Jesus Accounts

Or

Accept that a Miracle of splitting of the moon was done by Allah?

Obviously, the miracle of splitting the moon by God is much more plausible. Whether there not some regular physical activity to indicate the existence of some marks/traces remained or not. Since it the miracle of splitting the moon is mentioned in the Glorious Holy Quran, therefore it is a crystal-clear fact.

Only Allah who can split it, can also join it back like it was never split.

The moon split in two was one of the many miracles attributed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). By Allah’s permission, this miracle was performed during a night of the full moon in Mecca when the Prophet was challenged by the disbelievers to prove his prophethood.

How did the miracle of the moon splitting occur?

The miracle of the splitting of the moon occurred before the migration to Medina upon the demands of the polytheists with the permission of God and it was shown by the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as narrated by many of his companions.

Reaction of some of Arab Pagans to the Moon splitting Miracle:

When Almighty Allah let the moon split in half, one half standing over Mount Abu Qubais and the other half over Mount Quayqian, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) shouted at Muslims:

“O Abu Salama b. Abdulasad! Arqam b. Abi’l Erqam! Bear witness! (14)

And to the polytheists, he said, “Bear witness! So and so! (15)

However, the polytheists said “This is one of the spells of Abu Kabsha’s Son.” (16) “The son of Abu Kabsha cast a spell on you!” (17) They said “Muhammad cast a spell on us!” (18)

Some of them also said:

“If Muhammad had cast a spell on us then (19), He couldn’t have cast a spell on everyone! (20) Let us ask the wayfarers who came from the surrounding areas (21) if they saw what we saw.” (21)

They asked the people who came from everywhere. (22-23)

“Yes! We also did see the moon in that state! We saw the moon as split! They informed that the moon was split. Among the people who came from everywhere and seen the moon split, there was no one who had not informed them about it

The Quraish Arab Pagan polytheists said to the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him):

“If you truly are a Prophet that has been appointed by Allah, then split the moon in half. Let it be in such a way that one half will appear over the Mount Abu Qubais and the other half will be seen over Mount Quayqian.”

The prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) asked:

“If I do it, will you become Muslims?”

The polytheists answered:

“Yes, we will.”

Narrated Anas bin Malik: The people of Mecca asked Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hira’ mountain. [2]

Narrated Ibn Masud: During the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) the moon was split into two parts; one part remained over the mountain, and the other part went beyond the mountain. On that, Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “Witness this miracle.” [3]

However, the polytheists said “Muhammad cast a spell on us!” Narrated Muhammad bin Jubair bin Mut’im from his father who said: “The moon was split during the time of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) until it became as two sections, one above this mountain and one above that mountain.

So they said: ‘Muhammad has cast a spell upon us.’ Some of them said: ‘If he could cast a spell upon us, he can not cast a spell upon all of the people.’” [4]

They asked the people who came from every everywhere.

“Yes! We also did see the moon in that state! We saw the moon as split! They informed that the moon was split. [5]

One of the famous Sheikhs of Islam Said Al Nursi has responded beautifully to this question about the Moon splitting miracle:

“The reason for that is because miracles take place to prove the claim of prophethood, to convince deniers, but not to force them to believe. This miracle was needed to convince those who had already heard of the prophethood of Muhammad (peace be upon him).

To let it be seen from other parts of the world, or to demonstrate it in an undeniably obvious way, therefore, would have been contrary both to the wisdom of the All-Wise Creator and to the purpose of man’s function in the universe, which is to open the way for the mind without disabling the free will. 

If the All-Wise Creator had, in accordance with the whims of materialist philosophers, left the moon in the same condition for a few hours to show it to the entire world, and if this fact had thereby been recorded by all historians

It would have been treated among other astronomical incidents, without being restricted to the messengership of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and without being considered a proof of his prophethood. Or, it would have been such an obvious miracle that it would have forced the minds to believe and deprived it of the free will.

The Moon Splitting Miracle Let us start with the NON-Muslim Evidence

First you must know that NASA or any Scientist is not an authority for approving miracles. Miracles don’t need to be approved anyway.

What does NASA say about Moon’s ancient past, Moon splitting in Quran

The Moon Splitting.(Answering Skeptics)

The Arab Pagans of Mecca confirmed the splitting of the Moon by decscribing it to be a magic

Firstly this incident definitely took place because had it not taken place the disbelievers of Makkah would not have said that ‘This is Magic!’, as the Quran confirms it:

Quran (54:1-3) The Hour (of Judgement) is near, and the moon split. But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, ‘This is transient magic. They rejected ˹the truth˺ and followed their own desires—and every matter will be settled”

Its a historic fact that the disbelievers disliked the Prophet and did everything in their will to eliminate him and his followers. Their claiming thats its a magic is sufficient enough to prove that they did indeed see it but they rejected and termed it as magic.

The disbelievers claim that the Prophet ‘did magic’ is recorded in all biographies that have been ever written on his life, even in biographies written by non-Muslim Western writers. Therefore their claim of ‘his magic’ is accepted by all without any doubt!

When did Muslims claim Nasa agreed with the statement in the Qur’an? We said no such thing. The photos are official Nasa photos. No scientist denies there are fault lines in the moon, Brad Bailey, the Nasa scientist quoted, does not deny this.

The moon was split asunder, that does not mean it was spilt in two whole halves, this is a common misconception. The Arabic for two is اِثْنَاْنِ if you look at the Arabic text that word does not appear in the verse. This is how the various translators have interpreted the verse:

From looking at some hadith it also appears as if two is not in the Arabic text. Regardless it’s not really important, what is important is Muslims made the claim about 1400 years before evidence first appeared of cracks, splits, fault lines, whatever term you wish to use, in the moon. What is open to debate is how they got there.

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

Among many miracles of Prophet Mohammad (peace and blessings be upon him) 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)”

Historical documentation of the splitting of the moon:

Let us Examine the history of Moon Splitting into half:

The Indian history has recorded the name of one of their kings, Chakrawati Farmas, who is claimed to have witnessed the event of the splitting of the moon.

An Indian historical manuscript [The Indian manuscript is kept 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(1)] reports that:

“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 (peace be upon him) 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, he died at the port of Zafar.

This information is in an Indian manuscript kept in the “India Office Library”, which contains several other details about King Chakrawati Farmas.

The Indian king that visited the Prophet (peace be upon him) is mentioned in the Books of Hadith. In al-Hakim’s Mustadrak [2] it is reported that Abu Sa’id al-Khudri said:

“Then the King of India gave Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) a gift, a bottle of pickle that had ginger in it. The Holy Prophet distributed it among his Companions. I also received a piece of it to eat.”

It is known that the king became a Companion through meeting the Messenger (peace be upon him) and believing in him and dying as such.

Islamic references preserve the story of this Companion, who came from India. Imam Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani has mentioned him in al-Isabah and in Lisan al-Mizan.[4] He says that his name was (Sirbanak), the name he is known by among the Arabs.

1- Way back in history a Hindu king saw the splitting of the moon and converted to Islam

The 87-year-old Raja Valiyathampuram of Kodungallur in Central Kerala is a descendant of King Cheraman Perumal, the first Indian to embrace Islam in the early 7th century.

As is well known in Kerala, on a moon-lit night the king while walking on the rooftop of his palace along with the queen saw the moon suddenly splitting into two halves. Later he came to know through the Arab traders that that a prophet called Muhammad had brought a miracle on that fateful night and sundered the moon before a crowd of dazed spectators.

Impressed by this new messenger of God in Arabia, the king set out for the holy land after dividing his kingdom and assigning various territories to local chieftains to ensure smooth governance. In Arabia he met the Prophet and embraced Islam in the presence of Abu Bakr Siddique, who later became the first caliph. Cheraman, who took a Muslim name, Tajuddin, died on his way back to India and was buried on the shore of the Arabian Sea at Salala in the Sultanate of Oman.

Cheraman Juma Mosque

According to some legends, Cheraman Perumal (“Cheraman Perumal” being the title held by Chera kings) witnessed the splitting of the moon, a supernatural event mentioned in the Quran as a miracle performed by Prophet Muhammad when asked for one by Meccan unbelievers.

It is said that he had earlier written letters to the local rulers of Malabar and sent it through his ministers along with Malik bin Dinar, a companion of the Prophet. In the letters he had asked them to “receive the bearers of the letters and treat them well and help them to construct mosques at Kodungallur and elsewhere”.

The rulers of Kerala honoured the letters and permitted Malik Bin Dinar and his fellow Arab traders to build mosques in Kerala. The mosque built in the early 7th century at Kodungallur, known as Cheraman Malik Masjid, still exists with its original structure and is said to be the oldest mosque in the sub-continent. It is named after both Cheraman Perumal and Malik bin Dinar.

An Indian King Witnessed of Moon Splitting

Perumathura:

History:

The history of Perumathura dates back from the period of the Legendary King Cheraman Perumal who ruled South India during the 8th century A.D. The name Perumathura (meaning residence of Perumal) was derived from the Late Kings name.

It is believed that Cheraman Perumal converted to Islam during his stay at Perumathura. The mainland Perumathura and it’s surrounding islands – Kottaramthuruthu, Cheramanthuruthu and Madanvila are all related in one way or another to Cheraman Perumal.

The Present Scenario: The present population of Perumathura is around 8000, 95% of them belonging to the Islamic community, this is due to the effect of Cherman Perumal’s conversion to Islam. 4% are followers of the Christian faith and the balance worship the Hindu gods.

The economy of Perumathura mostly depends on the income generated by the people working in the Arabian Gulf States. Other sources of income include from

the traditional cottage industry of coir manufacturing, fishing, trading, coconut farming etc. Coir is manufactured from coconut husk which after a cumbersome process is transformed into variety of coir products. The coir products are sold mainly to the coir mills of Alappuzha & Cochin from where it is exported to many countries.

Perumathura boasts of 100% literacy. A good percent of them are well educated and are well placed in the government and private sector. Perumathura has many firsts to its credit including the first Muslim doctor from Kerala.

Raja Bhoj 

was an Indian king. There is a city named Bhoj after his name in the territory of Kachh (Gujrat). Raja Bhoj lived during the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). One night he saw the moon split in two and he asked the Pundits about it.

They studied the Vedas and Puranas, and told the king that this is the miracle of last prophet, when king asked the signs or descriptions of the Prophet, they told, “He will be from the city of peace and will be born in the house of a religious saint, his name will be “Narashansah” (praised one: “Muhammad” in Arabic), he will have four Khulafa=Caliphs= successors and have 12 wives”. 

In search of Narashansah, he came to know that he appeared in Makkah. He met with him, and embraced Islam at the hand of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the Prophet gave him the name Abdullah. When he came back home his family did not accept him. He spent his whole life in remembering the Prophet and in worship of one Allah.

(Dr. Kamala Kant Tewari’s book “Kalyuge Ke Antim Rishi” Page5, he took this from Pundit Dharm Ved Apadhye’s book “Antim Ishwar Doot” page 97)

2- Madrid manuscript

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. 1

The Aztex saw it

The event was seen! But, by whom? Was it the Aztecs who saw it and recorded it for their university lessons in astronomy as “The Birth of the Fifth Sun”?

The Maya actually recorded the split moon in the tiny glyphs in the Madrid Codex as the tiny glyph shown above

Maya Glyph for 20 days month

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 9.9.9.16.0 or the Gregorian date of 9 February 623 (the Julian date calculated the 6th of February, that same year

In the Ríos Codex, there are four pictures of the different ages of the Sun. All show stones falling from the sky. The last version shows a flowering mountain with fruit on it. Without a doubt, we can also call this Persian mountain “Flower/Fruit.” 


Here is a Persian manuscript illumination which refers to a split moon, a white, [lighter colored] mountain (in the background) and a mountain covered with flowers and fruit. A strange root radish-type “fruit” at the end of a beard pointing upward.

A weird gash in the earth; a man who is half hidden in it. It is reminiscent of a tearing of the earth by a fallen meteorite. It is a prophetic statement as all true instances of this event has been recorded. It had to be a prophecy; if not, it would have been destroyed. Governments are like that.


It appears that the Persians are making their own visual statement about the Flower/Fruit Mountain. A meteorite (stone egg) had fallen into the sea; not from the moon. It separated the Flower mountain from the White Mountain. 


A geological “sheer thrust,” in the land passed through the Puerto Rican Trench in the Atlantic Ocean through Mexico’s Popocatepetl and Ixtacuihuatl as far as the San Andreas Fault in Baja California. [Raicz, Erwin (1968) Landforms of Mexico]. 


 An Aztec/Mixtec Moon Glyph with a cord around the head meaning 20, thought to be a “tied” [completed] month of 20 days. The event was seen! But, by whom? Was it the Aztecs who saw it and recorded it for their university astronomy lessons or were they in Nasca, Peru, learning to triangulate the stars? 


Where was the Sun Wu Kong (the Monkey King) of China at the time? His name means “dog-of-the-old-moon.” The Aztec Xolotl was the dog version of Quetzalcoatl who fell from the heavens and saved the sun from death. 


Olivia Vlahos in her book, Far-Eastern Beginnings claimed that documents of the T’ang Dynasty (618-907) described the blue-eyed, blond Wu-sun, the Ting-ling and the Yueh-chih tribes [yueh = moon] which probably included people with Western faces.

The Ting-Ling and the Wu-sun inhabited lands around Lake Baikal and the Altai Mountains. She stated that the Yueh-Chih lived farther to the west. (p. 86) She also stated that the T¹ang described the Kirghiz as tall, red of face and of hair, green of eye.(p. 128) 


The presence of the tall Jaina hats and Caucasian features of the tombs of Xinjiang, in the burial sites on the edge of western Gobi desert and in the island of Jaina, off the coast of Mexico, may connect the two lands historically. Near the city of Belize located in the Yucatan peninsula, there is a point of land called the Moho Cay.

Then a connection might be made with the recorded event in the Moho Tarot-type manuscript; a short version of to passed he Monkey King’s journey westward. Is there another connection with the Jaina tall hats? The Monkey King did expel turds in the sky and the Aztecs believed the excrement of the gods was gold and silver. H.m.m.m.m. 


As an aside, the Persians invented Chess; those in India believed an emperor was an expert at game of Go, according to Pizzaro’s account. The travelers w through India played a board game called Parcheesi. Similar to a game played by the Aztecs with time on their hands. 


 As it is, there is a lot of evidence for transoceanic travel, both east and west, but we seem to be searching for things that cannot exist, such as, clothing, food, fine slipware, pottery, and statues, however small. 
Except for the last two items, all will be eaten, deteriorate, be broken in a short span of time.

The sea breezes create hunger and food in small boats which are not capable of sustaining more than a few people over a long journey. The salt spray will destroy in a very short time, even clothing packed carefully away in closed boxes. 


Men who traveled by these small boats would marry a native wherever area he stepped ashore. She would have none of the past. She would only choose to remember the present. The most viable element that was carried north, south, east and west from and throughout the Americas was knowledge and adept hands which could illustrate a concept. 


Original artwork would have been drawn on the seashore in the sands, on the mountains in the soil or on some form of cloth, paper or bark. All these original items would be lost over the centuries, in a very short span of time. Copyists in the area would insert their own version of the pictures. They would almost be the same, but not quite: a scroll here, a tassel there, a slanted eye or a strange hat. 


The script would change over the years from that of the original artist to that of the copyists. [See the tomb of Palenque and the Lady of China] When similar art forms are discovered, it is not easy to think of diffusion.

After all, we would never take a small boat across the oceans, but, even today, there are people who do. Single navigators with a dream, or even families with a sturdy, albeit small boat. Modern boats are better equipped than the open boats used centuries ago. 


A journey can be made, but because of language differences, are quickly forgotten. Those who traveled in ancient times knew of these differences and used both physical entertainment (i.e.: acrobatics, dance, mime, puppetry) and the paintbrush as their vehicles for understanding.

For their personal safety, they used “magic” which was no more blazing star than a primitive form of the very technology we use today. Did the moon split off from the earth? Most assuredly so.


[Oops, Apollianius saw the great star as it blazed in the sky brighter than an ordinary moon when our real Moon was taking a siesta as the New Moon before it emerged as a proper crescent ready to take on the world as its nighttime light for lovers and thieves again. Its debris fell to the earth, not from it.]

If one reads the Codices and reads Ferdowsi, one might find a story that is repeated in one of the Codex.Baranda. found in the Occidente de Oaxaca. Only a Persian could have told the story so completely.

3- In the Persian manuscript

Falnameh, a Persian BOOK of prophesies, writes Muhammed splits the moon and specifies exactly the timing of it

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 9.9.9.16.0 or the Gregorian date of 9 February 623 (the Julian date calculated the 6th of February, that same year).

Note: “Muhammad splits the moon,”was an illustration of a Falnameh,
a Persian book of prophecies.

What does the Science say?

Nasa affirms this splitting too

Spider web of cracks on the crater floor suggested to R. B. Baldwin (1968) that the floor was bowed up in the middle. Later, dark mare lavas flooded low areas in the outer part of the floor and covered the cracks.

A peculiar “bull’s eye” double crater on the crater floor has several counterparts elsewhere on the Moon. The origin of these double craters is a continuing puzzle. -K.A.H.

The origin of lunar sinuous riles remains controversial. Among the alternatives proposed are lava channels and lava tubes, but fracture control is decidedly apparent in some places

Why has a trace of splitting on the moon not been found up to now though science has developed so much?

Flying Down to Hadley Rille

The bruises or wounds on our body heal after a while without leaving any traces; the cracks that appear on the earth disappear in time without leaving any traces; similarly, it is quite sensible that the power that created the moon can eliminate the cleft that He made as a miracle.

On the other hand, as the late Muhammad Hamidullah, the great Islamic scholar points out, there is a trace of a cleft on the surface of the moon from the top to the bottom in the middle of the moon. This cleft is about a mile (a thousand and six hundred meters) wide; the astronomers called it “Hadley Rille”. 

The research about that cleft done by Apollo-15 crew was reported in the newspapers then. The picture of the cleft is shown below. [35] The video of the cleft(s) recorded by Apollo-15 crew can be watched in the

It is disputable whether the cleft seen in the picture is directly related to the miracle of the splitting of the moon. As it is understood, there are many clefts on the moon. All of the clefts need to be in the same direction and go round in the form of a circle on the same side if they are directly related to the splitting of the moon.

We do not know if it is like that or not now. We hope Muslim scientists will research the issue in the future. We can say that those clefts are evidence for those who insistently look for a trace for the miracle of the splitting of the moon.
