Landing on the Moon

This is what God Almighty says in Chapter number 54 (Al Qamar - القمر - The Moon), in verse number one:

Chapter 54, first verse
"The Hour has come closer, and the moon has split"

Man landend on the Moon and brought lunar surface samples back to earth in 1969. The vehicle Eagle left lunar surface on 21. July 1969 at 17:54:01 UTC. This coressponds to the 6th of Jamaadah al Awal (6th month in the Islamic calendar) of the year 1389 Hijri (indicating 1389 Lunar years from the day Prophet Muhammad, peace upon Him, migrated from Mecca to Madina) which means landing on the Moon occured in the year that completes 1390 years to the Hijra (the migration) according to the Islamic Calendar. This is the only verse in the Holy Quran that says something about Moon splitting. The verb Inshaqa (split) (إنشق) is used in other contexts in the Holy Quran to refer to splitting of earth as by water making rivers. This verse is the 1390th verse from the end of the Holy Quran, in other words, from this verse to the end of the Holy Quran there are exactly 1389 verses. 1389 verses from this verse, the Holy Quran ends. At the same time, 1389 years from Holy Quran's revelation, man would land on the Moon and bring, with his hands, lunar soil back to earth.

And to increase our confidence let us consider what God says right after this verse:

"ٱقْتَرَبَتِ ٱلسَّاعَةُ وَٱنشَقَّ ٱلْقَمَرُ ﴿١﴾ وَإِن يَرَوْا۟ ءَايَةًۭ يُعْرِضُوا۟ وَيَقُولُوا۟ سِحْرٌۭ مُّسْتَمِرٌّۭ ﴿٢﴾ وَكَذَّبُوا۟ وَٱتَّبَعُوٓا۟ أَهْوَآءَهُمْ ۚ وَكُلُّ أَمْرٍۢ مُّسْتَقِرٌّۭ ﴿٣﴾ وَلَقَدْ جَآءَهُم مِّنَ ٱلْأَنۢبَآءِ مَا فِيهِ مُزْدَجَرٌ ﴿٤﴾ حِكْمَةٌۢ بَـٰلِغَةٌۭ ۖ فَمَا تُغْنِ ٱلنُّذُرُ ﴿٥﴾"

" 2. But whenever they see a miracle they turn aside and say, This is well-devised magic. 3. And they have treated the prophets as impostors, and follow their own lusts; but everything is unalterably fixed. 4. A message of prohibition had come to them - 5. Consummate wisdom - but warners profit them not."

Assalamu'alaykum warahmatullah.

I am astonished! Laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa billah..

"but everything is unalterably fixed" does this say that he has fixed the date and time, for this event to happen? so it can match up with the qurans prediction? i get that feeling you know, I am not sure.

and what about the miracle Mohammad saw, on the moon splitting hadiths, is that a false hadiths? so the moon has been split two times?

I assume you are referring to verse number 49 of this chapter. God says: "Verily, everything have we created by decree,".

God is saying that He had created everything carefully. This should not surprise us. Think about the constants in physics

no sir.

i qouted from the verse above;  And they have treated the prophets as impostors, and follow their own lusts; but everything is unalterably fixed. get the feeling of  the veerse is that everthing is fixed, down to a sec. to match what the quran says about the future. 

The thing is that their is a hadiths, when mohammed performed a great miracle. he splith the moon in two, to the disbelievers. as a proof. that hadiths is very popular. my father told it once to me. but the verse above, can have two meanings right? 

Bismallah alrahman alraheem

Allah subhAnnah w taala is divinely brilliant, in language, space and time to name a few. The author referees to the verb (inshaqa -split) while refrenceing the fact that it's used under the context of "splitting the earth as by water making rivers." The missallusion is that infact 'split' is used under the same connotation of making a river. It is a well established fact that has been supported by modern instruments in Mars, that there was in fact water in both Mars and the moon at 1 point in time. Know the Hadith describes the Ascension to the heavens and the splitting of the moon. if I'm not mistanken the moon is indeed split- fact ( you can find pictures) and there was indeed water at 1 point in time ( thanks to Mars Rover data combined with moon sample analysis) and I'm sure if you can amass the current data and correlate it with the Quran it will all come out beautifully to say the least.

And keep in mind, split is very powerful and complex word, (inshaqa) yet very simple. It doesn't just simply allude to forming a river, but terraforming the planet, making the atmosphere, rotation, all these variables perfect. In one simple split. SubhannAllah. And what is truly equally divine is makeing the split split away in no time. As can be seen with the moon, our current moon is not hospital for life, but it was in a split in time.

Thank you @Scholar for sharing this. I will try to find more information about this and add any relevant information to this article.
