Prophet Saleh or Salih [PBUH] was known for his wisdom, purity
and goodness and had been greatly respected by his people before
Allah's revelation came to him. Most of them did not believe
him and tried to put him off by asking him to perform a miracle
if he was a true messenger of God ( Allah ). It was to let a
unique she camel issue from the mountains. The almighty granted
him this miracle and a huge, unique, she camel appeared from
the direction of the mountain. Yet most of them didn't believe
in him. They started plotting to kill the camel. Three days
after they finally killed it against the Prophet's warning,
a severe earthquake destroyed the entire city and its habitants.
Those who believed in the message of Saleh (PBUH), were saved
because they had left the place. The story finds a mention in
the Qur'an as well.

OF MOON SPLITTING (A MIRACLE OF PROPHET HAZRATH SYEDINA MUHAMMAD
SAL LAL LAHU ALAIHI WO SALAM (PBUH ))
FARMAS KING OF MALABAR, INDIA
incident relating to King Chakrawati Farmas is documented in
an old manuscript in the India Office Library, London, which
has reference number: Arabic, 2807, 152-173. It was quoted in
the book "Muhammad Rasulullah," by M. Hamidullah:
"There is a very old tradition in Malabar, South-West Coast
of India, that Chakrawati Farmas, one of their kings, had observed
the splitting of the moon, the celebrated miracle of the Holy
Prophet (pbuh) at Mecca, and learning on inquiry that there
was a prediction of the coming of a Messanger of God from Arabia
(Detail given bellow), he appointed his son as regent and set
out to meet him. He embraced Islam at the hand of the Prophet,
and when returning home, at the direction of the Prophet, died
at the port of Zafar, Oman, where the tomb of the "Indian
king" was piously visited for many centuries in Salalah
city ( Old name Zafar - new name Dhofar region )."
The old manuscript in the 'India Office Library' contains several
other details about King Chakrawati Farmas and his travel.
The king spent weeks in seclusion. In the midst of his quiet
life, he set out on the journey along with the Arab travelers
who'd promised him earlier. On the way, they stopped by Koylandi
and from there to Dharmapatnam where they halted for 3 days.
Then they set out to Shehr Muqalla. On reaching there, they
set for the Hajj pilgrimage and thereafter returned to Malabar.
He aspired to spread the message of Islam. Later when he wanted
to return to kerala unfortunately on the way, he felt sick and
breathed his last.
OF INDIAN KING ACCEPTING ISLAM IN HADEES SHAREEFS :-
A tradition of the Holy Prophet has also been reported from
one of the companions, Abu Saeed al Kaudri, regarding the arrival
of Cheraman Perumal. "A king from India presented the Messenger
of Allah with a bottle of pickle that had ginger in it. The
Holy Prophet distributed it among his companions. I also received
a piece to eat ". (Hakim reports in 'Al Musthadrak ). Later
the Indian King was named as " Tajuddin" by the beloved
Prophet Hazrat Syedina Muhammadur Rasool Allah Sal-lal-lahualaihi
wo salam and was sent to different places to spread the message
of peace and islam.
Umar Qazi's poem on GREAT Emperor Cheraman Perumal.
Qazi was well aware of the story of Cheraman Perumal - the first
Indian to accept Islam. He narrates it thus in one of his poems
inscribed on the walls of Ponnani Juma Masjid.
Kodungallur was a center of festivals established by the great
Emperor Cheraman Perumal .....
The major part of all the minor kingdoms were under his rule
As such, one day he saw he saw the moon split into two (a miracle
of Holy Prophet performed in Arabia) on a clear cloudless night
As a result the love for Holy Prophet grew in his heart and
he became the earliest Muslim of this nation....
Moon Splitting in The Quran
splitting of the moon is mentioned in the Holy Qur'an, Surah
Al-Qamar (54), Verses 1-3:
The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain.
And if they behold a portent they turn away and say:
They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts.
Yet everything will come to a decision.
Splitting in Hadiths
Abdullah bin Masud: "During the lifetime of the Prophet
the moon was split into two parts and on that the Prophet said,
'Bear witness (to thus).' (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues
and Merits of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions, Volume
4, Book 56, Number 830)"
Narrated Anas: "That the Meccan people requested Allah's
Apostle to show them a miracle, and so he showed them the splitting
of the moon. (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Virtues and Merits
of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions, Volume 4, Book 56,
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: "The moon was split into two parts
during the lifetime of the Prophet. (Translation of Sahih Bukhari,
Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions,
Volume 4, Book 56, Number 832)"
Narrated Anas bin Malik: "The people of Mecca asked Allah's
Apostle to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split
in two halves between which they saw the Hiram' mountain. (Translation
of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar),
Volume 5, Book 58, Number 208)"
Narrated 'Abdullah: "The moon was split ( into two pieces
) while we were with the Prophet in Mina. He said, "Be
witnesses." Then a Piece of the moon went towards the mountain.
(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah
(Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 209)"
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas: "During the lifetime of
Allah's Apostle the moon was split (into two places). (Translation
of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar),
Volume 5, Book 58, Number 210)"
Narrated 'Abdullah: "The moon was split (into two pieces).
(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah
(Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 211)"
According to Maududi, the traditionists and commentators have
agreed that this incident took place at Mina in Makkah about
five years before the Holy Prophet's Hijra (migration) to Madinah.
The Moon had split into two distinct parts in front of their
very eyes. The two parts had separated and receded so much apart
from each other that to the on-lookers (in Makkah) one part
had appeared on one side of the mountain and the other on the
other side of it. Then, in an instant the two had rejoined.
This was a manifest proof of the truth that the system of the
universe was neither eternal nor immortal, it could be disrupted.
This incident indicated that huge stars and planets could split
asunder, disintegrate, collide with each other, and everything
that had been described in the Qur'an on the Resurrection could
happen. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon
him) invited the people's attention to this event only with
this object in view and asked them to mark it and be a witness
to it. But the disbelievers described it as a magical illusion
and persisted in their denial. They were reproached in Surah
Al-Qamar (The Moon) for their stubbornness.
is due to this incident about their king, the people of Malabar
became the first community in India to accept Islam. Subsequently,
they increased their trade with Arabs, as the Arab ships used
to pass by their shores on the way to China before the advent
of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Before Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Malabar also had a Christian
community dating back from the earliest followers of Prophet
Jesus ('Isa), pbuh. St. Thomas is believed to have migrated
to India and died there. This community remained untouched by
later theological developments in Christianity until the arrival
of Portugese traveler Vasco da Gama.
When the British were consolidating their stronghold in India,
they deployed the largest naval operation (on the shores of
India) against the Muslims of Malabar.
of the coming of a Messanger of God from Arabia
Muhammad (Pbuh) was commanded by God to inform that he was not
the only Messenger of God to the world [Al Qur'an 46:9]. Scholars
say that there had been some 124,000 Prophet sent to the world
who preached in the language of the respective people [A Qur'an
14:4]. The true religion they preached and their scriptures
got corrupted with passage of time (with the exception of Al
Qur'an). However, the message on the last and greatest Prophet
Muhammad (Pbuh) is retained till date in the scriptures of all
major world religions.
The Hindu scriptures identify the greatest Prophet to come mentioning
details of his birth, events of his life, his followers, etc.
Some even give his Arabic name or its equivalents! This article
will help creating right belief (Iman) in other religionists.
Further, it will help Muslims appreciate yet another facet of
greatness of Prophet (Pbuh) and deepen their Iman. We will see
here only a sample of the overwhelming evidences!
(Pbuh) Foretold in India (A) Hindu scriptures
is no doubt that God sent Prophets (Pbuh) to people of India.
There is no mention of any Indian Prophet or scripture in Holy
Qur'an. But Bukhari records Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) as saying
he was enjoying breeze wafting from India laden with fragrance
of Tawhid (unity of God). The four Vedas (scriptures) of Hindus
and their epics are said to be 5000-10,000 years old. They contain
a great deal of monotheistic ideas, and of course, prophecies
on Hadrath Muhammad (Pbuh).
is a Sanskrit work of prophecies. The title means 'Book of the
Future'. Since Hinduism is based in India it was, and still
is, taken for granted that its sages will be born in India itself.
Contrary to this belief the Book says that a great master will
appear in a foreign country (mlechcha acharya) and live in a
sandy region (marusthal). His name will be Mahaaamad. Within
a short span of 18 couplets Mahaamad is mentioned five times.
There is an interesting information in Bhavishya Purana that
Mahaamad would appear to Bhoj, ruler of Dhar, and say that he
would establish the religion of meat eaters, by the command
of Ishwar i.e. God. There is a tradition that long afterwards,
Bhoj got terrified on seeing the full moon split into two. Learned
men consulted holy books and told him that it was one of the
signs of the Universal Master to be born in a country to the
West. Bhoj sent his minister to Prophet (Pbuh) in Arabia, who
named the king Abdullah. The Tomb of Abdullah is still there
is a Hindu epic describing the struggle and triumph of good
against evil. It was written by sage Vyas who also authored
Bhavishya Purana. Mahabharata says that in the last eon called
Kali Yug (in which we now live) a great sage will appear with
name Mahaamad. He would preach about unity of God. He will be
driven away from his native place by his own folk. By him the
world would get peace. (Islam means peace). Mahabharat further
says that cloud will provide him shade. It is recorded in history
that Buhaira, the Christian priest of Syria observed this sign
with Muhammad e in his boyhood and identified him as the last
Prophet anticipated for millennia.
signs and events of the final Avatar Kalki point out to final
Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh). They fit those of Muhammad (Pbuh) neatly
and perfectly. They are as follows;
ï§ Kalki will appear in the last on Kali Yug
and will be the guide for the entire world.
ï§ He will be born on the 12th day of the month.
Prophet (Pbuh) as born on 12th Of Rabiyyul Awwal).
ï§ His parents will be: Vishnu Bhagat and Soomati
meaning servant of God (the Cherisher) and peace. (Messenger's
(Pbuh) father's name was Abdullah, God's servant and mother
was Amina refuge giver which includes the idea of 'peace'.)
ï§ He will be with a beauty par-excellence.
His body will be fragrant.
ï§ He will get wisdom on a mountain. (Messenger
(Pbuh) was conferred Prophethood on Mt.Hira)
ï§ He will receive a horse from God, which will
be faster than lightning. Riding it he will go around the earth
and seven skies. (During Mi'raj Prophet (Pbuh) got Buraq meaning
lightning and toured the entire universe.)
ï§ Kalki will split the moon. Like Bhoj, Cheraman
(Zamorin) Perumal the ruler of Indian kingdom of Kerala, witnessed
splitting of the moon performed by Prophet (Pbuh). After gathering
the facts he sailed to Arabia and became Muslim at Prophet's
(Pbuh) hand. His Tomb is near the city of Salala in Oman.
