unbelievers of Makkah said to the Prophet (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi Wasallam) that if you are truly a Prophet split
the moon and if you do we shall believe. It was a full moon that night…
And so the Prophet (salla lahu alayi

Quran in Sura al Qamar:
“The hour has come near and the moon has split, and when they see a sign, they turn and say

during the time that the two halves of the moon recombined.
