Scientists haven’t figured out why the moon has split, but some of them think it was made hundreds of years ago. It is a miracle of the Holy Prophet, according to Surah Al-Qamar of the Holy Quran (PBUH).
The 54th chapter of the Quran is called Al-Qamar. It has 55 verses and is in the 27th Juz. Makki and the 37th chapter of the Quran were revealed to the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
The word Qamar, which means “moon,” appears in the first verses, which is how the Surah got its name.
It is a reminder of the miracle that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) did when he split the moon in two.
When the Mushrikin (people who believed in more than one god) of Mecca asked for a miracle to prove that he was telling the truth, the Prophet (PBUH) pointed at the moon and split it in two. He then put it back together. This wonder is called Shaq al-Qamar (splitting of the moon).
Even after this miracle, though, the Mushrikin still didn’t believe it. Instead, they said he (PBUH was lying and using magic.
In a book that came out in 2004, Egyptian geologist Dr. Zaghloul Annajar talked about the idea of the moon splitting. Based on a photo in this book, NASA scientists say that the moon split in half a long time ago and that there is strong evidence for this on the moon’s surface.
Most of the verses in Surah Al-Qamar are warnings to people who do wrong. They talk about bad people who have lived in the past. The verses tell people that when their actions are judged on the Day of Judgment, they will be in a bad place.
This is a lesson that people should remember. People from Aad, Thamud, Lut, and Pharaoh are talked about in this Surah.
The Surah says that the Quran was made easy to understand so that everyone could learn from it. This is said in Surah’s verses 17, 22, 32, and 40.
“We’ve made it easy to understand the Quran, but is anyone going to listen?”
The Surah warns those who follow their Nafs (selves) even though they know about the Day of Resurrection and what will happen to them in this world and the next.
The Surah also tells the stories of people who didn’t believe in God’s messengers and how they were punished.
