It is mentioned that when the disbelievers in Mecca Shareef asked the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – for a miracle, he then split the moon. One part was seen on the mount of Abu Qubais and the other on the mount of Qa’eeqan. The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – also made the people a witness to this miracle. (Jalaalain)

 

When they saw this, some of them remarked that the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – had merely performed magic and had mesmerised them. When the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – heard this statement of theirs, he informed them to ask those travellers who were returning whether they had also seen this miracle while they were travelling.

 

When these travellers were questioned, they made it clear that they had seen the moon split in two. When they heard this, the disbelievers were speechless, but still remained adamant on their disbelief and continued to say that this was nothing but magic.

 

This miracle of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – is mentioned in many authentic books of AHadith and has reached such a state of authenticity that it is impossible to refute it. If one continues to refute it, they are only doing this based on Kufr and enmity for the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him.” (Khazaa’inul Irfaan, 428)

 

This miracle is also mentioned in Surah Qamar.

 

The splitting of the moon is a miracle of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – which has no answer and has been proven from the Qur’an and many Ahadith. In reference to this, A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmed Raza – may Allah be pleased with him – states, “The sun returned turning its heels, the moon was split with a mere indication. O blind Najdis, look at the power of the Prophet of Allah Almighty.”
