  • If the Splitting of the Moon did happen then how come....

    People from India, Oman, etc, never saw the Splitting of the Moon...

    As despite of it only being miraculously showed to Meccans, the time zone in Saudi Arabia, Oman and India are very close, which means the people of Oman and India would have seen it.

    Also at the time Indians knew astronomical concepts, since ancient time and were aware of constellations and there are NO non-Muslim sources mentioning this incident.

    this miracle was witnessed by many and it has been meticulously documented so it happened without doubt

    it happened fairly quickly, i.e, the moon parted and was put back together again so maybe it took only a minute at the most? and people would have had to be looking up to notice it?; how many people look up?, plus if someone did see it somewhere else, it would have been in their best interest to keep their mouth shut less they get locked up in a looney bin :D, or maybe whoever else might have seen it thought they were just hallucinating?

    another point is that nothing in those days were historically recorded was it? [apart from hadiths from muslims] and even if it was, they weren't preserved [ [apart from hadiths from muslims] so these are just some of the reasons why we shoudn't be surprised there are no other reports of it being seen!

      How much astronomical data from India do we have from those ages?

        Firstly that mildly seems to assume it suddenly become night(the world rotated to a rotation that would mean night time for that region) which if that where the case the splitting of the moon would not be the only thing they(half the world) would notice but the fact that day become actual night or at the very least time shifted so instantly.

        Secondly on the other hand we know that even in day time the moon is out there it is just because of the excess light from the sun that we don't notice it, i.e Sometimes in the morning or before sunset one can clearly see the moon. Now imagine such a moon splitting it would only appear to those who are at a very specific timezone with specific conditions that can see the moon, i.e the light intensity is at a level enough to make out the moon meaning it can be darker in one region that makes it easier to see the moon than another, also cloud/sand/mountain cover, since one can view the moon from an angle. Thus implying that it can be such that only a very few select locations that could be at the position and conditions(light intensity) to view the moon at all, which pretty much narrows it down it potentially a select few if not one.

        Now seeing as the sign was meant for the people who requested it, it is a given the conditions to see the moon in the first place where satisfied for them but that doesn't mean it was for others. Not many people will look up at the moon in day time since:

        1. They don't expect to see it and
        2. You can't make it out clearly if not at all even with current telescopes. So no matter how much they(indians) knew of astronomical concepts if you can't see the moon if you can't see the moon.

        So unless the conditions that applied to that area(Makkah) where applied to others, there is no reason that they would have the right conditions to see the moon at all, taking into account cloud/mountain cover as a factor as well and where the moon is in it's orbit.

        If they did apply to others(oman the only plausible one in my point of view), we firstly don't know: How many people lived in oman at that time, and if they where as in tune with astronomical concepts as India, and secondly if they saw it but did not preserve a recording, or record it at all or some people did see it but like others the main population did not believe their observations, since as you know who sees a moon splitting everyday and who believes a man that says that unless you take that man to be trustworthy i'd assume only those that witnessed it and those that believe the people that witnessed it would, i.e It's either you witnessed it or you take the testimony of others or you don't believe.

        So for any of this to make sense we would first have to ask ourselves what places on earth could view the moon at that specific moment in time, once we pin point those places we can then ask what places had the conditions to be able to actually observe the moon(factors like cloud cover, light population from the sun etc), then ask how many people lived in the areas we have narrowed down. Then ask what was the social structure like, i.e if in a population of a 1000 if 3 people see something extraordinary is it common ground for the rest to take it as fact or to just brush it under the matt, then we need to ask, those that did witness it did they have the ability to record and safely preserve such.

        So yeah from that analysis i'm sure you get the picture that it is way more complicated than you have presented it, and the fact that others may not have witnessed it just says that it was not meant for all to witness.

          :salams

          Allah isn't going to ask us about this on the Day of Judgement. We shouldn't really focus on unnecessary things, to be honest.
          Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

          "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
          - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

            There are a 1001 reasons for why it may not have been documented, nad realistically speaking the Quraysh that saw it, didn't believe it even after they saw it, so do you think people other places would think anything other than they're going mad or had a bit too much to drink or w.e, plus it coulda been cloudy other places, people may not have been looking up at the sky, most people could have been sleeping etc etc
