    Re: The Moon Splitting.(Answering Skeptics)

    A quick glance at this table:

    A non-muslim might ask for non-islamic historical evidence for the moon split. He would argue that if such an event did happen then people all around the world would have seen it. Which is wrong because some would have had day time(early morning, daytime or sun set)

    Country
    Time
    Mecca
    9:00 pm
    India
    11:30 pm
    Perth
    2:00 am
    Reykjavik
    6:00 pm
    Washington D.C.
    2:00 pm
    Rio de Janeiro
    3:00 pm
    Tokyo
    3:00 am
    Beijing

    Table from islamreligion.com
    Shows that most of the cities mentioned didn't even exist at the time of this stated miracle. So why mention them?

    Next: The idea that no-one on the rest of the planet that had a view of the moon at the material time noticed that it had split in half, is frankly less believable than the claim that it happened. Even allowing for the view of the moon be obscured by weather conditions in 90% of the places where it was night, it beggars belief.

    Then: Why have modern studies of the moon found no vestiges of this sundering? The moon's surface is untouched by wind and water erosion, in the relatively short period since this splitting took place, there should be observable evidence.

      I don't believe what I just read. Here is a news flash. It doesn't matter if the cities did not exist by the name by which they are known today. They existed as a piece of land inhabited by people and this timing is the same that would have been then.

      Hence the argument stands.

        criticism based on a layman's thinking is that if such a wonderful event had taken place, its knowledge would have been commonplace and would have found its mention in the books of history, but they say that they have found no such thing recorded. Such a thinking is too simplistic which lacks careful analysis. A careful analysis shows that the event had occurred in Makkah at night. At that particular moment, in many parts of the world it must have been
        day time where and when the question of witnessing this event does not even arise. In many other countries, it must have been middle of the
        night, or last part of the night when the people normally sleep. Furthermore, people who are awake also do not stare at the moon all the time. Splitting of the moon would not make any difference on the moonlight spread on the earth, so that it would attract people's attention. The event took place suddenly and lasted for a short while. It is a daily experience that in particular countries at different times lunar eclipse takes place. Nowadays a forecast is made about its occurrence well in advance, yet there are hundreds of thousands of people who are absolutely unaware of it. Can this be the proof that the lunar eclipse did not take place? Thus if the event is not recorded in world history books, its occurrence cannot be denied or refuted.

        Besides, the event is recorded in the famous and reliable history book of India called 'Tarikh-e-Farishtah'. It has been mentioned in this book
        that the Maharajah, a native ruler, of Malabar had witnessed this phenomenon that night with his own eyes, and had it entered in his
        diary. This incident was the cause of his embracing Islam. Earlier on the narratives of Abu Dawud Tayalisi and Baihaqi were quoted about the
        pagans of Makkah themselves who inquired from the people arriving from the neighboring parts of the country and they confirmed and verified that they had seen it. Allah, the Pure and the Exalted, knows best! - Ma'arful Quran- Mufti Shafi

          Over half the world is in darkness in which everyone can see the moon, and besides that half in darkness where everyone sees the moon because it was the only light in the sky back then other than the stars (no electric lights of any type back then), you can see the moon before the sun sets and before sun rises. So the moon can actually be seen by over well 1/2 the world; yet no other people of any other place recorded the event.

            Moon was the night light for everyone back then with no lights other than small candle and lamps. You would think someone would notice that it broke up and came back together.

                        The reason why this nonsense is so ardently defended is the same as that applied to the creation myth. Accepting that it didn't happen means an acceptance that the fundamental dogma is equally flawed.

                          Isn't it strange how in the "past" God used to apparently part seas, flood planets, stop the Earth, blah, blah.
                          Since the advent of science, the camera, and YouTube nothing much seems to happen. :)

                            A young school boy in Palestine took pictures of the moon splitting with his iPhone but forgot to upload on instagram. Jewish rabies at that time took his phone and destroyed the SD card leaving no proof of the miracle.
