When the Moon Split: A biography of Prophet Muhammad
One of the miracles that God supported his prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, was the miracle of splitting the moon into two parts, until some of the Companions saw a mountain of Hira between them. And the occurrence of this miracle was before the Prophet’s migration when the infidels of Mecca asked him a verse indicating the sincerity of his vocation. May God be pleased with him, he said: (The moon split in the era of the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, two divisions, a band over the mountain, and a division without it, so the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, testified) agreed. And on the authority of Ibn Masoud, may God be pleased with him, he said: I saw Mount Hira from between the two moon seals.
