The Quran Surah: 54 Qamar The Moon
1- The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder
2- And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic."
The split of the moon is mostly refered to an event that happened in Prophet Muhammed(pbuh)'s lifetime, when the disbelievers of Quraish (the ruling tribe of Makkah) asked the Prophet(pbuh) to show them a miracle to prove his prophethood. So he pointed the moon and witnesses saw it splitting into two. Some other scholars refer to these verses as the signs of the last hour (before the judgement day). And a very few claim that these verses indicate the Apollo 13 landing on the moon and first man stepping on the moon.
I, for myself don't have any problem by the actual split of the moon by the Prophet(pbuh). People, even the religious ones, question the miracles of God practised by the Prophets(pbut), saying: I believe in God, but I have hard time believing in Moses(pbuh) splitting the Red Sea or Jesus(pbuh) bringing the dead back to life, etc... In the other hand, I find a human being coming to life in mothers womb or the amazing aspects of earth, it's gravity, atmosphere and how they work in conjuction to allow life sound more amazing than any miracle I read in the holy books. In this regard, I see the Quran as a true miracle, because it steps ahead and explains why and how all these amazing things come to existance: the very questions man asks...
