The wonders of the Qur’an never finishes. Allah(swt) said in the Holy Qur’an [41:53] ‘We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Qur’an) is the truth. Is it not sufficient in regard to your Lord that He is a Witness over all things?’ Someone asked Prof. Zaghloul Al-Najjar about the miracle mentioned in the beginning of Sura Al-Qamar (the moon) about the split of the moon [54:1] ‘The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder (the people of Makkah requested Prophet Muhammad (Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting of the moon)’.The question was whether there is any scientific evidence discovered to explain the incident?
The answer was that the miracle existed only at that time for the people of Quraiesh when they challenged the prophet Muhammmad (Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) to show them a miracle, or a proof that he is the Messenger of Allah (Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam).
The challenge was to split the moon in to two pieces when it is full. The incident of the splitting of the moon that has been mentioned determines its period of revelation precisely. The traditionalists and commentators are agreed that this incident took place at Mina in Makkah about five years before the Holy Prophet’s ( Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) hijra (immigration) to Madinah (about 565 AD).The amazing and wonderful phenomenon of the splitting of the Moon when it was full was a manifest sign of the truth that the Resurrection, of which the Holy Prophet (Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) was giving them the news, could take place and that it had approached near at hand.
The great sphere of 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 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. David Mosa Pidcook (leader on British Muslim Party) said: It was shown in BBC a program where there was a debate between three experts.
The discussion was about if the amount of money paid by NASA to send a human to land on the surface of the moon to study the inner structure of the moon was worth it or not?? The American government authorised a budget of $100, 000, 000, 000 (one hundred thousand million dollar) for this project. One of the discoveries of that project was that there is a layer of material that splits the moon into two halves and the only explanation to this discovery that the moon was split at some times in its history and rejoined !!!!!!!!!!!!!
