There is a very fascinating prophecy
in the Quran regarding the Moon landing that was done by NASA in
1969. Sura (Chapter) 54 of the Quran is entitled “The Moon”
and starts right away by giving us news about the splitting of the
moon as a sign that the end of the world is drawing close.
“The moon has split and the hour has
drawn closer.” (54:1)
Now when did the prophecy come to pass? To answer that, one must
keep the prophecy in mind: “The moon has split.” This
is a metaphor. Parts of the moon have left its surface. They no
longer are part of the moon. So, the prophecy does not refer to
the landing on the moon or to the first step made by Neil Armstrong
but to the fact that Armstrong and Aldrin collected 21 kilograms
of lunar rocks to bring back to earth.
The prophecy of Moon splitting was fulfilled at the very moment
the astronauts left the moon (split the Moon) in the lunar module
containing 21 kilograms of rocks that had belonged to the moon.
This can be confirmed by checking the definition of “split”
in any dictionary. Among the definitions given by Dictionary.com
are – “to divide, disunite, separate.” The date
this prophecy came to pass was on July
21, 1969. The moment the prophecy was
fulfilled is confirmed by the hour of departure of the lunar module,
which left the lunar surface at 17:54:1 (Universal Time). As we
know, verse 54:1 is the verse that deals with the prophecy. The
minute and second of the departure (Moon splitting) is the same
as the chapter number and verse number of the prophecy.
Also the mathematical miracle of the Quran based on number 19 confirms
this prophecy too:
The prophecy of Moon Splitting came to pass on July 21, 1969. Let
us write those numbers down in the format used by most countries:
21/07/1969. We get 21071969 and 21071969 = 19 x 1109051 (Multiple
of 19). It is interesting to note that the American date of landing
is also coded. The lunar module landed on 7/20/1969 according to
the USA time zones. Indeed: 7201969 = 19 x 379051 (again multiple
It is also interesting that the word “moon” in 54:1
is the 19th occurrence of this word from the beginning of the Quran
out of 26 total occurrences. This links this landing to the 19-based
mathematical miracle of the Quran.
So, the prophecy described in verse 54:1 was fulfilled on 21 July
at 17:54:1 (Universal Time) when the
lunar module left the moon carrying 21 kilograms of lunar rocks.
Let us add the Sura number (54), the verse number (1), the day (21),
the month (07) and the year (1969); we get: 54 + 1 + 21 + 7 + 1969
= 2052 or 19 x 108 (again multiple of 19).
There are 4845 verses from the beginning of the Quran to verse
54:1, and 4845 is a multiple of 19 (19 x 255). Also from the prophecy
in verse 54:1 in the Quran to the end of the Quran, there are 1389
verses. Remarkably, the year 1389 in the Islamic calendar is equivalent
to the year 1969 which is the year that the first man landed on
Also, Sura 54 itself has 55 verses. Now if we write 551389 next
to each other, it will give us the exact day, month, and year that
Apollo 11 landed on the moon: 07/20/1969. In other words, 5/5/1389
(in Islamic calendar) = 07/20/1969.
We also get an interesting result if we add the digits of 1389
or 4845. They both result in 21. We get 1+3+8+9 = 21 and 4+8+4+5
= 21. It was the 21st of July of 1969 that NASA lifted off the Moon
